Supporters did not seem surprised, only sad, when Mr. Cain announced that those who set out to destroy him, his family and his chances of becoming president had won. Of course he did not use any of those words. His optimism is encouraging. It is, however, hard to be encouraged when we see how media and some unknown force is able to take out a candidate. It was probably done because he is black. Not because Democrats are against blacks so much. Obama just cannot afford to lose any black votes. Yet Herman Cain did not and will not play the race card and further divide our nation. One has to admire that!
Perhaps if he had been younger he could have fought against the attacks longer. Bill Clinton certainly survived when he disgraced the nation. Of course the media did not crucify him and his party supported him in spite of the fact that he took advantage of a very young woman who worked under him in the White House. Now this is a double standard!
It is good to know that Mr Cain has said:
“I am at peace with my God. I am at peace with my wife. And she is at peace with me…and I am peace with my family and I am at peace with myself.”
While there is no way to know about his private life, his wife is standing by him and that should be good enough for all of us at this time. May God have mercy on anyone who may have lied to take him out of the race.
