Herman Cain slipping

For someone who was shooting up to the top of the polls in such a short period of time, Herman Cain sure seems to be making a lot of bad moves lately. Perhaps he truly does belong in second tier status. Cain and his campaign completely mismanaged his response to the sexual harassment allegations and he seems to be digging himself into a bigger hole as each day goes by. Earlier this week Herman Cain appeared on Fox News with Greta Van Susteren where they spoke of the allegations and she asked him if he had a roaming eye:

VAN SUSTEREN: Got a roaming eye at all?

CAIN: A roaming eye?


CAIN: I enjoy flowers, like everybody else.

VAN SUSTEREN: You know what I mean.


CAIN: No. No, not at all.

VAN SUSTEREN: Not at all.

CAIN: Well, I wouldn't say not at all. Depends upon what you mean and (INAUDIBLE) to what you mean.

I'm sorry but that was just terrible. He enjoys flowers just like everyone else? I don't even know what the hell that's supposed to mean. It certainly doesn't come off well in this context, now's not the time to be beating around the bush or cracking jokes. And the last part just adds an extra dose of WTF. "No, Not at all. Wait, I wouldn't say not at all". Whaaaaa?? The correct answer Mr. Cain is an unequivocal "NO". Why is he trying to tap dance around what should be an obvious and direct response? She's not asking you about some complicated middle east strategy here, people are trying to find out if you did in fact sexually harass women and since that may not be possible they're trying to test your character and you sir are failing miserably.
