Glenn is torn on what to think about the Herman Cain allegations. Glenn has met Cain several times and really likes him — but is he a closet dirtbag? Is there truth to any of the allegations or is this a hit job? Why does Herman Cain have the worst campaign manager of all time? Glenn explores some of these questions and more — the answers are important because unlike the left, Glenn is consistent. Character matters – if Cain doesn’t have it, then he’s got to go.
“I want to talk a little bit about Cain and how we as a show and his people are going to judge this because we’re never going to know the truth. Never going to know the truth. We have to come to a decision. If we think the guy is guilty or if there’s a good chance of being guilty, then you can’t vote for him. Because character does matter,” Glenn said.
“I can’t vote for a guy without character,” Glenn said.
Glenn explained that a lot of candidates won’t come on his show because he will ask tough questions and be clear on points where he disagrees with a candidate.
“I will tell you this, that a lot of these guys, they won’t come on. Cain is a guy who I met with several times. I like him. He’s been on the show. However, we have been trying to get him for the last week. He won’t come on this broadcast. He won’t come on GBTV. And that’s totally fine. That’s totally fine. It may be that we’re too small and it doesn’t matter to him.”
“They never know where I’m coming from. They never know. You get into a conversation with me; I can turn on you fast.”
“I’m not going to tell you I agree on everything. And if I think you’re a dirtbag, I’m going to call you out.”
“I’m not going to play gotcha. That’s the one thing I won’t do that everybody else will. I won’t play gotcha. I don’t care about the ratings, much to everybody’s chagrin. I don’t care about the ratings. It’s not about that. I actually believe the country is in trouble. I really want the best guy. I’m not going to play gotcha to get, you know, headlines or whatever. I don’t really care. So sit down with him.”
“So how do you judge him? How do you judge this scenario? Well, the first thing is we have to find out about these people. I would also like to be able to sit down with these women. I’d like to be able to have a fair ‑‑ I’m not going to try again gotcha on them. I could go either way. I don’t know who to believe. I find it really fascinating that ‑‑ I find it fascinating a couple of things. One, that all these people are coming out right now. It doesn’t make sense to me. It doesn’t make sense to me. Two, I’d like to hear Herman Cain’s wife on this.”
“But anyway, we as people are going to have to decide unfortunately. And let’s not let the press decide for us because haven’t we been dealt enough lies? Don’t we ‑‑ what have they given us before that is true? What have they given us lately that’s true? Why should we listen to them now?
