Now my friend Eric has a mom who is uses it -- look at social media magazine's great -- it's great to be here how are you Tom terrific -- nice Thanksgiving holiday had a great thanks to wonderful -- magazines did great and yet and I think -- even if I feel like using it okay yeah I think that's that says -- terrific and guidance is standing by also.
In Washington and he's a political editor -- town -- dot com great to see you guys.
-- yet at a Thanksgiving as well.
Terrific is my favorite holiday so I'm I'm still basking in the post Thanksgiving -- that's fantastic I -- my favorite holidays as well also we share that that's terrific so let's talk for a moment about.
cain's campaign given the fact that this woman has come forward and yes there are people who are looking at her background saying that -- have financial problems that she has some other personal issues going on.
The fact she's produced phone records and and show -- tweak some things allegedly from mr.
-- To the investigative news.
Bureau under the age EA at this point what does that tell you.
It tells me that they at least knew each other and there were at least friendly enough that over a span of four months because.
To my knowledge based on what I've read -- -- -- about this story she provided for months worth of cell phone bills.
-- to the news station is proof for some substantiation ever story.
During that four month period roughly -- 120 days.
There were 61 calls or tax.
Between -- Herman Cain his private cell phone and this woman now he says he was just trying to help -- financially that she's just a friend.
That's possible it's conceivable.
Although this would be a contact roughly every other day.
And that would indicate to me -- -- were probably very good friends although -- said in his CNN interview with Wolf Blitzer yesterday that his wife has never met this woman doesn't know this woman -- Let's just say there are some special there's some suspicious elements of this -- both on McCain's side I think that we need to know.
Why it is that this woman would how the ginger white would have -- his private cell phone number why they would talk as often as they do.
I also would like to know how many of those phone calls and text were initiated by container -- this woman because it it is like to.
And the other thing is I mean people have relationships men and women have relationships all the time friends you know up.
It just seems obviously there's seems to be -- yes on some red flags here but.
At the same time he is vehemently denying these charges and he knows certainly that if there it isn't going to investigators that he puts himself out there and up -- ahead of the story denying it air we think about well.
One is everybody saying how it's still insisting he.
He preempted whenever she was gonna say that's the Smart thing to do not preempt whatever you -- can I -- had nothing gonna crisis -- -- -- in front of it.
You know it's hot spot I'm sure we'll meet new friends -- -- right up.
I don't amateur photo -- purified -- you want you found but we're happy and -- I don't -- cold she thought it is the thing about the text messages is because we're talking about for months and.
-- -- -- all sorts of things about this if there really -- text messages for him back and forth what what did they say.
They did that will tell the story right.
Permit you must now if you want to run for president of the united states of this country and you did anything ever it will come out so all of these alleged you know.
The exit this this one's an affair the other is harassment.
If they are true it will come out it's -- his campaign right now because he cannot get back -- message he's just dealing with all these allegations I have no idea whether they're true or not.
But I don't know if he's good friends with this woman and -- None of us stale but.
I I will say that Herman -- as forceful as his -- he's really good at that.
If he did this -- he doesn't have a shot and right now as campaign is completely derail as a result of it and you know I've been saying rewind the tape I've been saying for months.
I've -- -- to.
I never thought -- was going to be around standing in the and I don't think -- will meet either.
But I think it's the worst spot to be right down the Republican Party is who is running against Romney has who's ever running against -- seems to be getting killed week after week after week.
Indeed -- actually got a that would isn't going to statement that his attorney put out there and unbelievable that he would.
Issue a statement like this and it put it out there as though there may have been something going on CDC people -- not offering.
But a flat out denial I mean did did not there -- the same age.
Putting together a statement I telecommunication and data were -- media -- just like he did he act on his own independent agent -- -- in some ways.
Well this has been a recurring pattern has -- not where there have been little issues cropping up -- and bigger issues.
Popping up that is really -- hammered Herman Cain and -- Herman Cain.
And every step of the way it seems dating back to the various harrassment charges from the two.
I had previously unidentified women and Sharon -- -- now ginger white.
This is of course an affair allegation not not harassment she's -- that.
He treated her really well in this particular case there's never bin.
Seemingly a coherent.
Strategy wherever -- was on the same page saying the same thing in this case came came out got ahead of the -- angry with Eric this was politically.
A much more deft way -- -- -- -- A crisis getting in front of it getting your story out there are so the news isn't broken by someone else but then he's got his lawyer as you mention.
Kind of sending out this cryptic.
Statements in the press that essentially tells the media -- -- out this is none of your damn business that's essentially what he says.
And that doesn't really you know inspire confidence okay here here's goddess -- I'm not Herman -- I feel like.
At the end of the day whether Herman Cain becomes -- does not become the Republican nominee for president at this point I think it's becoming clear that he won't be.
I don't know how much these little nitty gritty details of these allegations will really mattered will be whether or not people think he is qualified and credible to be president.
And when it comes to these denials that we saw yesterday -- Wolf Blitzer.
-- one of two things is true either Herman Cain is absolutely innocent and this woman is making it up.
Or he is an incredibly persuasive.
And skilled and practiced liar and I really hope it's not the latter because I like Herman Cain now.
