I don't really care about the affairs as much as how he encapsulates them in his mind. It is his delusion that he could run for president without all this stuff coming to the surface that presents the problem. A mind that is prone to self-delusion should not be a prime decision maker.
I know what you mean. When the first lady came out, I thought to myself, "so what? This has to be some kind of smear campaign." By the time the sixth lady appeared, with telephone records and other evidence, I just don't know. I think the Cain Train has reached its final destination. It's too bad too, because he'd have been a great candidate to get the nomination. And not that I care, but I think it makes him harder to elect. Any republican with a trail of sexcapades like that should know that it's ALL going to come out. At least he likes women
, ya know, we have to be grateful for small things... Christ, you'd think that Barney Frank could've been brought down a long time ago for scandalous shit, but no... that's where the double standard lies. Democrats can get away with murder when it comes to scandals. Republicans have to be clean as a whistle because the media will hunt down and pay ANYBODY with any dirt on them to come out and chirp like a canary.
Anyhow. It doesn't actually bother me either. He could've had a hundred affairs and I'd still vote for him. I'm looking for a candidate that can think like a businessman fiscally and has a plan to deal with the high debt, tax, and spending problems. I really don't care how he behaves in his sexual life. It's interesting to think, if the European media dug up dirt on a candidate's affairs in Europe, they would say, "Yeah we know. They all have mistresses. Who cares."
I guess it's back to rooting for Ron Paul. Who's also unelectable. Sad.
