<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">The Herman Cain campaign is stepping up its latest line of defense against the sexual harassment story rocking Cain this week.

Rick Perry, Cain chief of staff Mark Block told Fox Wednesday, needs to apologize for the story. To America.

“Rick Perry needs to apologize to Herman Cain and, quite frankly, to America,” Block said.

He was pitching the latest pushback from the Cain campaign on the sexual harassment allegations, which began with “the story is not true” and shifted into “ok it’s pretty true, but it’s not that bad” earlier this week. <span style='font-size: 14pt'>The new line is that Perry’s campaign is responsible for the story</span> and therefore the story is inherently tainted by dirty politics. Or something like that, anyway. To be honest, it’s hard to see how that’s much of a defense and with the women involved eager to talk about what happened the importance of who’s responsible for the story may not matter much longer.

Cain himself debuted the charge Wednesday afternoon in an interview with Forbes in which he claimed a former consultant for his 1994 Senate campaign who now works for Perry knew about the past allegations and told Team Perry, which then told the press.

Block points to another story out today, in which a Perry-connected pollster recalled witnessing a sexual harassment-type incident at a DC-area restaurant with Cain back when he was CEO of the National Restaurant Association.

The Perry campaign has denied pushing the story on Politico, which broke the tale of the multiple allegations Sunday.

Block isn’t buying it.

“Quite frankly, this is one of the actions in America that is the reason people don’t get involved in politics,” he told Fox. “The Perry campaign needs to apologize to Herman Cain and his family, and to America, for this despicable action.” </div></div>

Like all Liars, diversion.

Truth be told, it doesn't matter who let the story get out, Cain still has been caught in lies, and eventually, it will all come out.

I love it when snakes end up biting each other! This guy calls it dirty politics between Cain and Romney. The Republicans INVENTED dirty politics, so it feels good to see them now taking it up their own rightie butts. What's the old saying about if you can't stand the heat in the kitchen? sid

It may not hurt him at all with the sort of people who vote Republican. There is no explaining the sort of people they choose as their "Heroes" if you know what I mean.

The Independent Voters, and more moderate Republicans, if there is any such thing anymore as a moderate Republican, which I seriously doubt, will turn against him as he continues to spin this story as though he is the victim.

Republican operatives, and leaders, will defend him to the end, of course, as they always do, regardless of how outrageous his behavior may be proven to have been over the years.

I think it would be a scream, if it comes out that Rove was behind leaking all of this, LOL...wouldn't surprise me one bit, BTW. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif

It's going going to come out, eventually, regardless, IMO.
Too much smoke for this story to fade away!

Yes, we have a President with great poise, honor and dignity. But, who cares, really, how stupid the righies are. Most of their irrational BS is usually proven wrong, and they end up with egg all over their faces.

Just look at all of the lies they tried to spread around about the Clinton's, most of which were proven completely false, and then they ended up only making themselves look more stupid, and more vicious, when it all came out how many of them were doing even worse, and their impeachment failed to rise to the level of impeachment...all of that money wasted...and what did it get them? It got us 9/11, according to much of what Richard Clarke wrote about how much they crippled Clinton's desired policies for increasing the focus on getting bin Laden, and tamping down other worrisome foreign issues.

Repubs are now trying to re-ignite the whole Birther BS. Talk about beating a dead horse!

They must be feeling desperate! Their numbers are taking a pretty good slide. While the President's are climbing..../forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif
