Round Heels for Herman…and Other Indiscretions


Round Heels for Herman

And other indiscretions

By L. J. Martin

I’m saddened by the presidential aspiration demise of Herman Cain.  As a “non-politician” he was the only one in the race not previously poisoned by D.C. politics, and the only one whose business acumen was finely tuned enough to begin to solve the country’s problems.  Yes, powerful and effective men have powerful drives, and that includes sex.  None of us were inside the Cain marriage and none of us know how tolerant Mrs. Cain was of his drive and needs.  That said, none of us knows what this supposed twelve year relationship consisted of; but no matter, for Herman, if he were the administrator he’s proven himself to be, he should have administered that problem in advance—this woman should have been dealt with, either financially or emotionally, so she felt no need to “come forth.”  It only proves to me that Herman was no politician.  I’d love to see the woman’s financial records and if she profited from her “disclosure.”  What else did she have to gain?  She certainly didn’t gain the respect of her country by having round heels for Herman!  Had she truly wanted to win financially she should have waited until after he was elected then written her tell all book.  Had I only been her agent….  Herman, you messed your own nest and should have cleaned up behind yourself.  And I still think you are the best man for the job.

Had this country had any idea about the sexual history of JFK or of Bubba Clinton, would they have been elected?  Had we not been mesmerized by Hussain and his lapdog liberal press following, and really known his background, would he have been elected?  I’m still in shock regarding the gullibility of the American people over that one.

We’ve allowed the best candidate for the job to be cast aside because he was far less of an offender than the two aforementioned.  Now, if you truly want to discuss a degenerate, take a look at JFK’s successor, Lyndon Baines Johnson.  In my opinion LBJ was not only a degenerate see In the President’s Secret Service by Ronald Kessler.

but was a traitor to every young man fighting in Vietnam.  I’ll be happy to expound on that belief in more detail another time, or go back and read my post: “Uncouth, Nasty, and Often Drunk”…70 Years Of Presidents.  It’s one of three segments dealing with past presidents.

I quote from that post:

When Johnson allowed Viet Nam SAM missile sites to be built and completed before he sent our boys into bomb them…afraid that Russian advisors might be killed if he bombed them while under construction, he said to me that American government no longer supports those who’ve offered their lives to defend the country—Kennedy’s disregard was for the lives of Cubans, Johnson’s for the lives of Americans.  Sorry, but I think that the larger crime for a president of the U.S.   When Johnson lied about the attacks in the Gulf of Tonkin in order to propagate another costly and divisive “police action,” he almost cratered the country.  One wonders if he forgot the trials and tribulations of his own service?

However, he proved later that he was an amoral pig who would pull out his penis, the size of which he often bragged about, and urinate on his lawn in front of the press corp, many of whom were women .  The man destroyed almost two centuries of presidential respect in a single oppressive, repressive, regressive, disgusting term.  Had it not been for Civil Rights, an accomplishment far more of Martin Luther King than LBJ, his presidency could be totally disregarded and disdained.  His so-called “great society” was a great load on the backs of hard-working, tax-paying Americans, and a failure.  And I’m still suspicious of his possible involvement in the tragedy of Dallas.  I would put little past the immorality of the man.

When Johnson died, Secret Service agents guarding Lady Bird noted that among the hundreds of pictures at the Johnson ranch, there was not one of him with JFK.

LBJ was also a thief, using funds from a Secret Service account to buy fancy hunting rifles, which he and his buddies kept, and when he left office he had ten plane loads of government property flown to his ranch in texas.  He was a pig in more ways than one.

Thank God Lady Bird Johnson planted expressway meridians with wild flowers, or there would be little reason for Americans not to line up and urinate on his grave…okay, okay, that’s a little much, but I don’t admire nor respect his memory, even though I still revere the office he held, and hold great regard for the Silver Star and all it embodies.  “Johnson would come on the plane (Air Force One), and the minute he got out of sight of the crowds, he would stand in the doorway and grin from ear to ear, and say, ‘You dumb sons of bitches.  I piss on all of you,” recalls Robert M. MacMillan, an Air Force One steward.” From In the President’s Secret Service, Ronald Kessler.  So maybe pissing on Johnson’s grave would not be out of the question.

Herman Cain was, and is, a paragon of morality as compared to LBJ.

I’ve always had great respect for Newt Gingrich, particularly for his intellect, and hope and pray he’s electable and not so erectable as many in the past (pun intended), that his past indiscretions (long behind him) will not so cloud the issue of who’s best for the country that he will be dismissed by that important segment of the conservative base, southern Christians.

The value of Newt’s political background is seated in his understanding of the ins and outs of D.C. and how to get things done.  God knows he got an education while Speaker of the House.  Had I been in a position to design my perfect ticket, it would have been Cain as president, Mitch Daniels as V.P., and Newt as Cain’s Chief of Staff, where he could truly raise hell, kick ass, and take no prisoners.  That said, let’s pray the country embraces Newt Gingrinch and his deep intellect.  No man can step into the morass that’s the American economy today and come out unscathed, but if Newt is one thing, it’s tough.  I hope we give him a chance to save America for our children and grandchildren, and theirs.

Herman Cain….
