Thank you for your recent article on Herman Cain. You nailed it. I too was so happy to see Mr. Cain run - hoping that he would show the country that there are conservatives of color. His candidacy was brave, honest and positive. Everything Obama is not. And that scared the heck out of the Obama campaign. They had to take him out. But he will rise again!!
I am a big fan of both of you. Keep it up!

The Hermanator was my guy. I'm so angry at what was done to him. Clarence Thomas, Robert Bork, Sarah Palin, Herman Cain. I KNEW he would be treated that way.
Personally I can't stand what's happening in politics. I know it was always bad and that the press always mocked people, but this was merciless.
Thank you for this article. I'm hoping he will serve in some capacity in government soon. We need more like him.

Herman Cain has embarrassed not only himself, but also all those, like me, who supported him.
If he didn't do what they said he did, he should have stayed in the contest. That's what an honorable person does when his integrity is challenged. He doesn't run away. He stands and fights for his honor. The claims that his wife wanted him to drop out aren't credible either. If he were innocent, she would have wanted him to stay in and fight, too, because by dropping out he confirms that he was NOT innocent, and thereby humiliates her as well.
I supported Cain with much time and much money. God might not be done with Herman Cain, but I am.

Herman Cain, in my mind, stands for things that can help rescue our culture and our government. What has happened to him, so far, from the democrat Axlerods in his campaign both saddens and enrages me. Mr. Cain can still perform a service during this campaign and afterward: he can continue to espouse the principles he believes in and highlight how far such reside from the plantation policies democrats have to pursue to keep the vote they have.

Thank You, Mr. Marcus, for your article on Herman Cain. It was very refreshing to hear from a person, who like myself, felt Mr. Cain got railroaded out of the race. We all know the reason was that the establishment was so very afraid of him.
I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Cain in Des Moines, Iowa, at a meet and greet. Not only did I get the first question to him and receive an honest answer, but got to talk with him one-on-one after and felt the man was so very sincere on his points. He had my backing until he withdrew and I can tell you this: There is NOT one of the candidates left who have the courage and honesty this man showed during his whole campaign.
Thank You again..

Congratulations on a wonderful and bittersweet column.
You basically nailed it – the demolition of Mr. Cain by liberal media and even some conservatives and the truly sad state of affairs in our country.
I was very troubled by the attack on Mr. Cain and dejected when he left the campaign, though I understand why he did.
There is a principle that the leaders selected to run the country reflect the will, or perhaps, condition of the people voting.
Between those whose moral compass points south; churches that have become more like secular businesses which results in congregations of spiritual infants; the general public which shows more fickleness than finesse and more concern over pro sports than who is leading the country, it is no wonder we have immoral, inept leaders.
From what I see, there are no viable conservative candidates currently in the race and it seems that the entire election is being hijacked to either put Romney in office or get Obama re-elected.
Whatever shall we do now?

I am sadden by Herman Cain’s mainstream media destruction. The liberals were so afraid of a conservative black man running for the office of president. Liberals call us racist because we don’t like Obama’s policies. I am here to tell you I am a white woman who loved Herman Cain for his optimism and positive message. I am not a racist, I just hate the left's message. I want my country back. I so strongly disagree with Obama and want he wants for our great country.
When the Tea Party movement began, I was on board immediately. We need to fight for our wonderful country. I am afraid of where we are heading. The only good thing that came for Obama winning the White House is that people like myself became aware of the destructive progressive agenda.
In closing I do not believe what the media or those women said about Herman Cain and I would have voted for him. We need to have more people like yourself and Herman Cain in our lives.
God Bless you, Mary, and Herman and his family.

Herman Cain: a final word
Posted by Lloyd Marcus on Dec 28, 2011 at 07:16 PM
God "ain't" done with Herman Cain.
I would not blame Herman Cain if he said, Lloyd, I know you mean well, brother. However, the relentless vitriolic media attacks against me have finally subsided since I dropped out of the presidential race. My family and I are finally having some peace. So, why on earth would you bring up my name again?More...
