Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain will be making the rounds in Michigan after a debate at Oakland University Wednesday, including a stop in Ypsilanti, according to reports.

A tweet from the Michigan Information and Research Service, a news source in Lansing, said Cain will make a stop in Ypsilanti following the Republican party debate at Oakland University on Wednesday. MIRS reports Cain will also be stopping Kalamazoo, Traverse City and Grand Rapids.

There is no information on where and when Cain will be in Ypsilanti. The calendar on his official website makes no mention of any events scheduled for Thursday.

Thanks for that response. I am only concerned about the character of these people who are emerging from the shadows of time like dark spirits. Politico is not my big boss. They need to first investigate the intentions and credibility of these low characters who have found an opportunity to reveal their secret dealings wth people. I am not able to swallow their lies and insinuations.

It is absolutely unfair to discredit a candidate based upon some allegations made by people who have no intinsic worth or moral character. He is enitled to present his views and seek public support for his views. I have not heard anything great or substantial from other candidates in the field. If they have no dirt to deliver, the reason is that of lack of substance in what they have been sharing. I would not give more time to others as a few have chosen to show their dirty laundry to public.

Politico gave him 10 days to come up with his story. His story is a lie. He can't remember something that any one of us would never forget! He has no substance and little character. Except that you might say he's quite a character!!

This is news? I agree w/ John B., Katmandu & Godsbreath. Cain's not worth 10 mins. of my time (oops, just spent 3 mins. on him!)

How can someone have such a poor memory of so many harassment incidents over such a short timeframe? which are we to believe - that he did not recall, or the other alternative - that he has lied? Accordingly what else has he forgotten, or isn't revealing?


Wed, Nov 9, 2011 : 2:45 p.m.

Joey, Herman either can't even lead his own personal memory or simply be honest about what those entail. The country needs to be protected from such an man(arguendo), not permit his virgin public service with the highest office in the land.Google Richard Dale Snyder. His leadership -as it is reading- is an overfunded myth by the same syndicate the country is trying to overcome. We don't want to be his next victim. Sorry 'bout your status quo if he the best chance your crowd has. Again, now is the time he needs to be with his family until his past is successfully resolved.

It appears from the Allred accusation show that Cain is seen as the greatest threat to our Democrat gravy train. I'll have to take a look at the guy to see why a Cain nomination is so feared. Sleazy accusations playing openly on an old racist stereotype will be echoed by diversity parrots outraged that one of "them" has escaped from the Democrat farm. Hypocrisy is very entertaining. This attack refers back to scenes from "Birth of a Nation"; Woodrow Wilson, that historic Southern racist, would love it.

And which party do you think the Southern racists reside today? Take off your blinders. Ronnie's trips to Mississippi and South Carolina made it perfectly clear to the world that they were welcome in his "Big Tent" where they happily reside to this day! And how could you be blind to Boehner's Bridge To Nowhere gravy train.

What's the point of hte visit? He won't remember it anyways

@godsbreath64: The country needs a leader more than anything else right now. Herman may not be perfect but he's the best chance we have right now. I'm sure once we get through the Chicago politics, the country will benefit.

I'm guessing his tax plan was his own idea, but given his self-admitted inability to remember events in his past, I'm thinking it was a threatened German girl that gave him his idea for the slogan "nein, nein, nein".

How can someone not recall multiple sexual harassment complaints in such a short period of time?

Is he even in the race at this point? What a flash-in-the-pan. Alll smoke-and-mirrors. Buh-bye.

Anyone else notice the Herman Cain story is being covered here by the crime and courts reporter?


Wed, Nov 9, 2011 : 12:09 p.m.

And it's appropriate.


Wed, Nov 9, 2011 : 4:42 a.m.

Herman Cain needs to stay away and be with his family while both his sexual harassment and prevarications of them are brought more fully into the light. He needs to understand that Michigan and the country do not want him impairing our presidential electoral process while he figures out simply who his victims are. If they had their say, America would rather not be the next.


Wed, Nov 9, 2011 : 11:38 a.m.

The media throws out accusations and then can't produce anyone to corroborate them with the only intent to destroy a man's character. If they're true then they should name names and get the truth out there. I don't belioeve anything the media says especially when it comes to politics and their bias.

Herman was the first to have a plan. We need someone to lead because the thing right now is broken. @katmando: do we have to play the class warfare game while Rome burns? Nothing will be perfect, it's the boring fact of life with Republicans (as Peggy Noonan says), that they are concerned with spending. As far as taxes go, taxes are the price we pay for a civilized society (Oliver Weldel Holmes). The 9-9-9 plan isn't perfect and Herman admits that but this is a strong base for a real change (<a href="" rel='nofollow'></a>. As far as taxcuts, what loopholes are there in a plan that is flat? The biggest enemy of the middle class, the poor and the elderly is not having a tax accountant know the latest tax code.


Wed, Nov 9, 2011 : 1:37 p.m.

Firstly, Republicans are hardly &quot;conerned with spending&quot;. They just feign concern when a Democrat is in the White House. Just look at 2000 - 2008 for obvious evidence that they do not care about spending. Secondly, &quot;The class warfare game&quot; is hardly limited to merely those on the left saying the rich should be taxed more. There's a whole other side that has been fighting, and winning, the class war for centuries - might I presume your call for a ceasefire should be heeded by them as well? Or do we continue to let them rig the entire government and financial systems to their advantage, while they pour gas all over Rome? Thirdly, 999 might be real change, but its change to something really crappy. It doesn't take an accountant to realize that a flat tax obviously means that the rich will pay less (the flat tax rate is lower than the current rate) or the middle class will pay more (the flat tax is higher than their current rate).


Wed, Nov 9, 2011 : 3:48 a.m.

Is he bring is nine nine nine garbage with him? Raising taxes on the middle class, the poor and the elderly and giving taxcuts to the rich is his plan.


Wed, Nov 9, 2011 : 2:45 p.m.

@ Mike, you do realize that a flat tax will not make the tax code any less complicated. There will still be deductions and loopholes galore. A flat tax and reworking the current tax code are two completely different topics. Don't swallow the propaganda so readily. A flat tax will indeed simply shift the tax burden from the extremely wealthy to the middle class and the poor.


Wed, Nov 9, 2011 : 1:33 p.m.

@mike, you spend the same amount of money on an accountant as a new truck costs? That's a lot of money!


Wed, Nov 9, 2011 : 11:36 a.m.

I'd rather keep the complicated 50,000 page tax codewe have now and spend the money I would use to buy a new truck on my accountant while everyone whines about the rich needing to be taxed more. Why change anything? What we have works so well.........
