I personally enjoyed the GOP debate on CNBC last night. Those particular moderators are very sharp. They understand money, fiscal policy etc, and are used to thinking on their feet.
The poster who started this discussion seems a bit confused when he wrote about a smoking gun regarding Cain. Cain is fighting accusations of sexual harassment...not of having extramarital sex while married to his wife Gloria. The items he wrote about are not "smoking guns" for that offense.
Cain, in his 5pm press conference, with his very high profile lawyer by his side, and with notes he normally never uses, has denied ever even meeting the first woman who put a public face on this issue. Totally denied ever even meeting her. He did admit remembering one woman it has been confirmed has a confidential settlement. But could only remember one issue in that case. Cain had plenty of time to get access to the files regarding any complaints and settlements paid on his behalf. If he did not, he was so he could have plausible deniability with the media and public at large.
He also quoted his wife of over 40 years, Gloria, but she was nowhere to be seen. That could mean something. Maybe his wife chooses not to lend her credibility to something she knows will help her husband but does not want to.
The boos from the audience when asked a question about this issue were expected by the moderators. Look at the source. But I wonder how many women in that crowd have been sexually harassed??? Odds are quite a few.
Rick Perry is just simply painful to watch at this point. And Friday night there is yet another debate. Issue...foreign policy.
Newt is waffling between the actually intelligent man he really is, and the grumpy old uncle personality that appeals to the right wing part of the GOP. It is like a tightrope act he is performing. He can go toe to toe with smart people. But then he reverts to behavior that will appeal to the right wingers.
The other candidates are just playing out their hands at this point.
It truly is Romney's to lose. In fact, he almost seemed likeable when he stumbled over how long he was married. The GOP if they were smart, would convince the very conservative subset, that the only one who has the money and a chance at the independents is Romney.
But as you wrote, Sister, regarding Romney, "Bring it On". It may be a lot of GOTV, but the GOP are really looking at 2016 behind closed doors.
