I confess to not liking Herman Cain that much. He is 100000% better than Obama, but he bugs me. He is supposed to be a scientist – having a degree in Math, doing Ordinary Differential Equations as a mathematician for the Navy, then he got a Masters in Computer Science, and held various IT positions as he climbed the corporate ladder.
But he doesn’t talk like a scientist. His thoughts and speech patterns seem chaotic and he wanders all over answering questions, when he answers them at all.
I understand his attraction to the typical conservative. And I’ll vote for him, but I have concerns, and it seems like yet another “blah” candidate option in the decades long failure of our political process to actually offer up decent people.
I was once accused of sexual harassment. Although almost 20 years ago, I remember it quite clearly, because I was first, mad, and second, a bit scared. The woman in question had been fired for poor job attendance and drug use. She retaliated by bringing a lawyer and an accusation hoping to fish for $. After hearing our presentation and documentation on why she was fired, the lawyer apologized and bowed out.
For Cain to not “remember” the details of the accusations and their legal aftermath smacks of flat out lying, or frankly, cover-up.
Now, given my experience, I can readily believe that some money grubbing slacker female decided to attempt legal extortion. I can REALLY believe that is the case. What I can’t believe is Cain doesn’t remember it happening.
I also can’t believe he didn’t dump this to a friendly reporter months ago. It smacks of continued amateurism. I don’t want a smooth politician, but I wouldn’t mind a hint of competence.
Oh… and I never liked Godfather Pizza’s pizza.
