His lack of knowledge on the issues should

It’s been almost a month since the first whiff of scandal began hitting Cain’s fan. The media erupted with the scandalous allegations. The usual talking heads touted their beliefs that this was the nail on Herman’s coffin. Instead he came out swinging. How dare these ingrates. Everyone is out to get Herman Cain. Especially the Democrats and President Obama. The smell of paranoia was strong in the air. And as each accuser came out, each story juicer, it seemed his chances of occupying the White House got smaller. Now a thirteen year affair. Yowza. What next? 
Of course who knows what the truth is. And yes until proven otherwise, we should take all of these allegations with a grain of salt and then wait till anything is proven to be real. Even if we discover all of these complaints are true, none of these situations should cause Herman Cain’s withdrawal from the race. Historically Presidents haven’t all been saints. Some have quite a few skeletons in their closets. But to disavow a potential nominee because of his personal demons isn’t part of the electoral decision. None of which has anything to do with a candidates abilities, or if they are mentally equipped for the position.
The worse thing in this was all the B.S. attached to this current scandals has stopped people’s learning about the real facts behind the plans that Mr. Cain’s proposes. Just when the truth was being told, the fact that his plans actually make things worse was being discovered by the masses; these scandals have stopped his unravelling. At least for now. 
This year’s crop of would be President’s are shockingly not up to the job. Historically there is always at least one person in the menagerie that at appears up to the challenge. Each and everyone of these would-be Presidents have too many questions about their qualifications. None of which has anything to do what they do outside public office. 
As a life-long democrat and a person whose used to not being on the side of victory when it comes to his choices for President. I can count two that I voted for who won, Clinton twice and Obama. Sadly I can’t count Gore and I missed out on Carter’s first campaign, too young. So I’m used to defeat. But given this years crop of would be candidates it’s becoming clearer and more obvious that unless something unforeseen happens President Obama will be reelected.
Just because Herman might have had a few (or many) dalliances with the ladies shouldn’t end his run. His lack of qualifications should.

Just one man’s opinion.
