Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich and an oasis of scandal-free debate in Texas

THE WOODLANDS, Texas — Two presidential candidates with deep Georgia roots – one a long-time survivor of a personal life made public, the other newly wrestling with its consequences – created an oasis of scandal-free discussion Saturday with a one-on-one debate over how to shrink the federal safety net.

Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich greeted each other with a friendly embrace and for 90 minutes avoided every opportunity to disagree with each other’s plans to reform federal spending.

Not a word was spoken of Cain’s weeklong battle against charges that he was the object of sexual harassment complaints while head of a Washington lobbying organization in the 1990s.

The only allusion to Cain’s troubles came when the former U.S. House speaker asked his rival what had surprised him most in his run for president.

“The nit-pickiness of the media,” Cain replied. “I did not realize the fly-specking nature of the media — especially when you rise in the polls.”

In a session with reporters afterward, Cain was friendly until a reporter attempted to raise the topic of the sexual harassment complaints. Cain interrupted him, and called for a “good question.” “We are getting back on message. End of story,” he said, before being urged out of the room by aides.

In the debate, Cain and Gingrich agreed on shifting Medicaid, which provides health care to the poor, to a block grant system that would allow states to set their own standards and create their own programs.

Both agreed that young Americans should be offered the chance to establish private retirement accounts as an alternative to Social Security, as proposed by President George W. Bush.

When Cain said the privatization of Social Security would also require his “9-9-9” plan – which includes a 9 percent national sales tax – Gingrich demurred, announcing he would “sidestep the great temptation” to discuss the controversial proposal.

The only return jab came when Cain — running as a businessman in no need of government experience — declared that politicians always underestimate the costs of federal programs.

The debate, a $200-a-ticket fund-raiser for the Texas Patriots PAC, a tea party group, was intended as an antidote to crowded, televised debates that have featured a large GOP field reduced to 30-second sound bites. The two-man event was conceived this spring when few considered Cain and Gingrich viable contenders.

But a poor start by the campaign of Texas Gov. Rick Perry has allowed Cain to emerge as Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s chief contender less than two months before the Iowa caucuses.

Gingrich is also rising. A Washington Post/ABC News poll that last week put Cain in a virtual tie with Romney also showed Gingrich with double-digit support for the first time since he restarted his campaign in June.

For Cain, a debate format inspired by the famed 1858 confrontations over slavery between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas was a refreshing end to a tumultuous week. His campaign had been overwhelmed by the revelation of sexual harassment complaints lodged against him when he was president of the Washington, D.C.-based National Restaurant Association.

The organizers of Saturday’s debate declared the topic off-limits.

“Rather than being distracted by all the gossip, we want to know about the issues that are really important,” said Julie Turner, president of the group.

Even without the ban, thrice-married Gingrich wasn’t the man to raise the issue. He was the only GOP rival to forcefully defend Cain last week as the victim of a media-driven “witch hunt.”

Despite the respite from an uncomfortable topic, the debate was considered yet another test for Cain, a businessman who prides himself on his non-politician status and his ability to speak without a TelePrompter.

Until Saturday he had avoided going into detail about many of his views and proposals. But Cain held his own, and was stumped only once, when a moderator, during a discussion of Medicare, asked the former radio talk show host his opinion on “defined benefit plans with premium support.”

“You first, Newt,” Cain said.

There were no references to other Republicans in the contest. The duo preferred to target President Barack Obama, who Gingrich said was “about as criminal as Bernie Madoff in what he tells the American people.”

But Cain had the last word, with a final question for Gingrich. “If you were vice president of the United States, what would you want the president to assign you to do first?” he asked.

Gingrich said former Vice President Dick Cheney had taught him to avoid hunting.

Several times, Cain and Gingrich made reference to their friendship, which dates to Gingrich’s 1995 appointment of Cain to a tax reform commission. And their shared geography was noted by many.

But in fact, their time in Georgia never overlapped. Gingrich was an early presence in a nascent Republican party in the state, starting with a failed 1974 run for Congress. But after his party lost control of the House in 1998, Gingrich resigned from Congress and became a legal resident of Virginia.

Cain was raised in Atlanta, but left after graduating from Morehouse College in 1967. He returned in 2000. Most Republicans first became aware of him four years later during an unsuccessful race for the U.S. Senate, which he lost to incumbent Johnny Isakson. Cain then launched a talk-radio career.

But the two candidates share more than red clay and a desire to remake the federal government.

Gingrich and Cain – and Romney and Perry, too — face skepticism from women voters. In a Quinnipiac University poll released last week, President Barack Obama led all likely GOP challengers, but his lead expanded among female voters surveyed. Romney did best, picking up the support of 38 percent of women.

The numbers imply that, though it was barred from the Texas debate, the issue of personal behavior is likely to remain a factor as the GOP race gets down to brass knuckles.

“There is a real division here between evangelical and social conservative men, and evangelical and social conservative women. The men are much more likely to be forgiving. The women are not,” said Richard Land, who heads the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission.

It is not a universal opinion. Julianne Thompson is a co-founder of the Atlanta Tea Party Patriots. She was at a Gingrich event in Gwinnett last week and considers herself a personal friend of Cain, and said she would be watching the debate on C-SPAN on Saturday night instead of the Alabama-LSU football game.

She considers both Gingrich and Cain to be “excellent” candidates.

“I think we’re at the point that we don’t have the luxury of connecting just on social issues. I think that’s what a majority of tea party supporters think,” she said.

Thompson noted that, as a converted Catholic, Gingrich has gone through the process of confession and contrition. She considers the charges against Cain unproven, but faults his campaign staff for bumbling its response.

“I am looking at who Herman Cain is in 2011,” she said.

You seem so disappointed that your favorite biased unsubstantiated topic was only brought up by a member of the media.

Yea, that topic IS uncomfortable – for the biased liberal media which is the party caught with its pants down.

And the negative reference to skepticism by women voters is more than balanced by Obama’s skepticism by men – your glass half empty reference is bias.

Herman Cain held his own against Newt Gingrich. I like either Cain-Gingrich OR Gingrich Cain for 2012. How refreshing to have the candidates stick to the issues and not try to tear each other down; and how refreshing to have a moderator who did not try to pit the candidates against each other. I wish all of the debates were like this.

Let us talk about the ideas for a minute:

1: Block grant Medicaid to the states just like Welfare was in 1996. Great idea.

2: Personal accounts for SS for younger Americans. Great idea.

3: More choice to Medicare and stop the dang fraud in the program: Great idea.

What does Obama propose for these three programs? Tax the rich and spend more money.

No Doubt who wins this argument and has real ideas to help the economy.

anyone but Obama, even a centrist democrat!

Nice ideas by both. I have found it interesting all week that the ‘alleged’ incident by Mr Cain, not proven just alleged, would be pounced on not just by the media, most of whom are philandering idiots themselves, but the democrats…the party of Kennedy, Hart, Clinton, Gore, Edwards…a regular Hall of Fame of philandering socialist/fascists.

Also, there is an obvious reason that no other candidates showed up to go head to head against Newt and that is because they know they would look foolish. He wont do that to Herman and he knew that he wouldn’t.

What a refreshing change! I truly enjoyed watching this debate, and hope that others in the campaign can come together to do the same. The debates thus far have been nothing more than liberal moderators prompting bickering responses, working hard to get the candidates to knock each other out, so sick of that! On top of that, how can you possibly know a candidates stance on any subject when they only have 30 seconds to respond? No possibility for in depth responses on how they would solve our problems. This forum give us real insight into each persons solutions.

And NO SNIPING, you can have a campaign without mud slinging, only problem is the media hates that, they need to see blood, then condemn the candidates when they get their wish!

Neither of these two has any chance of winning the GOP nomination and neither deserves to win anything.

Cain is a political illiterate who has never been elected to so much as a library board who somehow thinks bossing and harassing people in a pizza chain qualifies him to be president. His campaign is mostly about feeding his ego and putting himself in a position to make more money off books and appearances. His comment about China developing nuclear weapons when they had them in 1964 and were still doing open atmospheric testing in the mid-70s makes him look like a fool.

Gingrich is in it for the same reasons to make even more money and have a little influence. He long ago ceased to be a political force and his utterly nonsensical to the point of being offensive comments make him look like a fool as well. The comment about the US becoming an atheist society dominated by sharia law is the latest gaffe. This is just stock right wing hatred of secular people and fear mongering demagoguery . Believe it or not Newt there are fine citizens who are atheists who care about this country and its future as much or more than you do….and we are not all serial adulterers. To hear this hypocrite lecture us about morality is really a bit much.

Gingrich and Cain will not be the nominee, but Cain will get closer to the spot than Gingrich. However, Sens. Isakson and Chambliss should be worried and here’s why. Herman Cain now has enough name recognition and firepower to challenge one of those guys for the Senate and win. In my opinion, it would be a smart move because whatever he does in the Senate would be heavily watched by the media and put Georgia on the map unlike our two current senators who are relatively unknown outside of this state. Then again, it could all backfire.

Cain lost in 2004 to become Georgia’s senator, but now his chances are greater if he decides to run in the future.

The Idiocracy Party Candidate-Herman Cain

The scene in Idiocracy, the Mike Judge movie, where the US president is at the podium and being booed, but then he reaches back and pulls out a huge machine gun and fires a rapid blast into the ceiling and then says to the stunned silent audience “Right, that’s what I thought”.

That is a metaphor for Herman Cain. He’s the GO candidate. I know the man from listening to him as a radio talk show host well before the present ‘dillema’ and I can tell you, Herman Cain speaks AM…and he is the first candidate of the Idiocracy party.

This party must be taken seriously, they are people too, but we on the Left have a huge divide to cross to reach these other people. Just like in Idiocracy they have been convinced by corporate backed spokespeople that whatever makes the corporations the most profits is good and should be supported. In today’s world the corporate microphone is AM RADIO-COX-WABC.

The spokespeople are, Hannity, Limbaugh, Boortz, Levin, Savage, Ingram, Beck etc. Twenty hours a day, five days a week, corporate fantasy reality; Idiocracy.

We must reach out with with basic facts about our nations fiscal history. That is our best argument. These folks, who are good people at heart, have been presented with a fake version of US history, especially concerning financial matters.

I present a basic version of our recent fiscal history in my masthead under the title…at the top of the page here. Let me repeat it and please write your own version and plague the media with it! It’s our only hope.

-From 1940-80 the wealthiest Americans paid between 70% and 90% in income taxes and that’s how we built…the American Dream. Between 1940-80 we fought and paid for WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, we built our US Interstate Expressway system, Roads, Electrical Grid, Telephone, our main Bridges and Tunnels; we Made every Car we Drove and we wore just the Clothes we Sewed and WE WENT TO THE MOON SIX TIMES-AND WE PAID FOR IT ALL!-

Normally, I don’t waste my time reading the political drivel of the AJC. However, this morning I was looking specifically for reports on the Cain – Gingrich debate that was broadcast last night. Thus far I have found a grand total of zero articles that have focused on the debate choosing instead to focus on the “alleged” harassment issue surrounding Herman Cain for the past several days.

The news media as a collective and the AJC specifically could have benefited greatly by providing real reporting to their readers and perhaps might even have attracted a few new subscribers. Instead they focus on the same worn out smear tactics that the public is so weary of. Time for the news media to get its collective heads out of its anal orifice before its to late.

The scene in Idiocracy, the Mike Judge movie, where the US president is at the podium and being booed, but then he reaches back and pulls out a huge machine gun and fires a rapid blast into the ceiling and then says to the stunned silent audience “Right, that’s what I thought”.

That is a metaphor for Herman Cain. He’s the Get er Done candidate. I know the man from listening to him as a radio talk show host well before the present ‘dillema’ of his frighteningly viable candidacy for president and I can tell you, Herman Cain speaks AM and he is the first candidate of the Idiocracy party.

This party must be taken seriously, but we on the Left have a huge divide to cross to reach them. Just like in Idiocracy they have been convinced by corporate backed spokespeople that whatever makes the corporations the most profits is good and should be supported. In today’s world the corporate microphone is AM RADIO-COX-WABC and the billionaire Koch brothers who Cain refers to as his ‘brothers from another mother’.

The spokespeople are, Hannity, Limbaugh, Boortz, Levin, Savage, Ingram, Beck etc. Twenty hours a day, five days a week, corporate fantasy reality; Idiocracy. Herman Cain was trained in their ranks as an AM talk radio host in Atlanta where he had his own show and often filled in for Neal Boortz until as recently as a year ago.

This is the easy answer party and easy answers appeal to a nation who still feel lost and on the ropes financially, too tired from working harder than ever to make ends meet to take the time to analyze the history and complexities of our weak economy. And tragically, many of these people are too exhausted and frustrated to take the time to even notice that the bill of goods in the Idiocracy party platform is just the same old conservative economics we’ve suffered through for thirty years. Even Democrat president Clinton was, in the words of Alan Greenspan ‘a great Republican president, economically’ because he signed Republican sponsored legislation to gut welfare and unbridled free trade which perhaps no other Democrat president in history would have signed.

This is a frightening moment for America. We are on the cusp of nominating a complete charlatan to run for the presidency in one of our major parties. It’s easy to say ‘it doesn’t matter, he can’t win the general election’ and hopefully that’s true, but this could get scarier before it’s over. In a nation which is already all too much like Idiocracy, where people seem to no longer have any historical compass to guide them, what might happen?

The Idiocracy party has already succeeded in re-starting the conversation about taxation, from scratch, on their AM machine. ‘Why have any taxes at all?’ that’s a good place to start, they say. And ‘Why should any person, no matter how poor, not pay the exact same tax as a billionaire?’ sounds good huh? What if some high profile rich young athletes like the ring of their taxation being cut to 1/4 what it presently is and they step forward as Heroes for Herman in an ad campaign? It’s queasy to contemplate.

We must reach out with with basic facts about our nations fiscal history. That is our best argument. These folks, who are good people at heart, have been presented with a fake version of US history, especially concerning financial matters. The truth is that one can easily trace America’s economic glory days, from 1940-80, to far higher taxes on the most wealthy with that federal revenue being spent to modernize our nations transportation and technological infrastructure, public education etc. And the reverse taxation policies we’ve endured since 1980 have shown us opposite results. But AM Idiocracy says ‘No, we are just failing because we didn’t lower the taxes on the rich enough’.

We on the Left have our work cut out for us…

It is a very sad testament to the principals of the entire conservative base that the Republican candidate, Herman Cain is being supported and promoted for the job as the leader of America’s people.

An arrogant CEO who pays off “false accusers” of sexual harassment. A pusher of junk food in a country that is waaaaay too fat and unhealthy already. A provider of minimum wage jobs that provides no health insurance. An individual who serves the “shareholder” before serving the American people. An American individual who pushes smoking cigarettes against the backdrop of “an American anthem” song. The message is clear form Cain, fast food, cigarettes, minimum wage jobs, no healthcare, sexual harasser who pays off victims…. and an outright liar.

Way to go Republicans!

The Republicans need to run an intelligent, articulate, moral person with good ideas about saving the WHOLE country, not just selected parts.

As for Perry, he is an idiot, too. Imagine him in the WH? And Romney could never win, with his “religious baggage,” no matter who goes on the ballot with him.

Is it not important that there are sexual predators among you? Sweep it under the rug for now until it comes back to BITE you in the butt. Maybe when Cain is president he might sexually harass or sexually assault someone – THEN IT WILL BE TOO LATE!

We must face the truth that there are sexual predators among us.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — An explosive sex abuse scandal and allegations of a cover-up rocked Happy Valley after former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, once considered Joe Paterno’s heir apparent, was charged with sexually assaulting eight boys over 15 years. Among the allegations was that a graduate assistant saw Sandusky assault a boy in the shower at the team’s practice center in 2002.

Gingrich is soon to run away with the republican nomination and the then the
general election. It is inevitable, as the guy is unique in his experience, vision, and ambition
to correct the ills of this nation. When you think about past presidents and their desire to leave
a lasting legacy and couple that with Newt’s historical understanding of such things, you will
realize that he is going to be amazing for this country. He will likely go down at a top three
president of all time. I am pretty excited. But if you got to hate, go to http://www.nationalsponsor.com to vote for your favorite candidate, not that it will change the

Along with a longstanding ESTABLISHMENT republican at a “TEA PARTY” debate? Will the real tea party please stand up? I could be wrong, but this was probably nothing more than a fundraiser and in no way promoted the core values the modern tea party was founded on. “Anybody but Obama” is not acceptable to those who are just as fed up with the Progressives in both parties.

Hosting – to udzielanie przez dostawcę usługi internetowej zapasów serwerowni. Jeszcze precyzyjniej mówiąc polega to na “zajęciu” daniu do wykorzystania określonej objętości dysku twardego, na której jest dozwolone przechowywać pliki tworzące zawartość stron internetowych i bądź udostępnienie powierzchni dysku jako położenia dla plików “leżących” w skrzynce mailowej. Inna odmiana hostingu to użyczenie większych obrębów dysku, a nawet kompletnego serwera bądź kilku – jako namacalnego nośnika na rzecz dużego serwisu internetowego, portalu, grupy dyskusyjnej i innych.
