“What Todd said, in reality didnt amount to a hill of beans, but the media made it a mountain, and the leaders on our side joined them.”
Again, and again, and again, and again. How long will we endure this?
The liberal media LOVE Akin. They not only want him to stay in the race they want him as the GOP poster boy. No wonder he was their favorite candidate in the primary and the beneficiary of cross over voters and Dem advertisements.
Finally, a voice of reason.
I am so disgusted with my former heroines (Malkin, Coulter, Palin) for jumping on the "Akin is an idiot and must go" bandwagon.
I am disgusted with Mitt Romney and Scott Brown too, although I must say neither of those guys was a hero to me.
Otoh I am heartened by Rush Limbaugh today. He is still equivocating, but at least he never jumped on the bandwagon.
Look folks, it is NOT "idiocy," what Akin said. What he said was not scientifically implausible. There are respected doctors who agree with him (e.g. Dr. John C. Wilkie, MD, OB/GYN).
Akin was, at most, guilty of clumsy phrasing. THAT'S ALL. Clumsy phrasing, after an apology, should not be a FATAL ERROR.
So those of you out there parroting the Left and spreading irresponsible memes like "Magic Uterus" -- stop it!
And Sarah Palin, for God's sake, stop promoting the idea of an independent candidacy. That is a sure-fire loser. McCaskill will take the state if voters split the vote.
Like Rush, I still say there is a good chance Akin can win. People who don't know Missouri should NOT pontificate about what the voters should do -- or will do.
And oh btw, I'm a woman. I've had five pregnancies. Therefore my comments, and beliefs, about female physiology and abortion politics cannot be dismissed, like they are for men. /s
What he said was the language of someone half- informed. What is more he has not learned what he should have said, because he has this wrong information in his head. Sort of like George Romney saying that the military had brain-washed him. Sort of like Quayle misspelling that food. They will never let him forget. The Ds will be saying War on women and women will be saying, he said WHAT? If only he had said this before the primary election!
Excellent statement. The GOP circular firing squad has been in full effect the past two days. Morons every one of them.
I think the issue is not Akin’s clumsy comments, but his apparent belief that rape victims should be compelled by law to bring their children to term. I would rather be talking about the economy. But the question has been emphasized by the media and is therefore on people’s minds.
But the Lord works in mysterious ways . . .
And now Scott Brown wants to invite the pro abortion crowd into the big tent.
That’s not friendly fire, that’s a fragging.
I don’t know what he said or what he was trying to say. I have found it best to stop and take a deep breath before kicking someone to the curb. I do know that opponents like it when you panic. When the Democrats, and their media lackeys start to attack, attack them back. You don’t win going on the defensive. Just smile and refute their comments. If this guy needs to go, then we do it after consideration. Let coulter and her Democrat friends panic.
Exactly! Hannity and Malkin really ticked me off yesterday.. I’m sad Levin jumped on that same bandwagon. Pure Tunnel Vision! I’m getting so sick of political pundits knee jerk reactions.
No, he shot himself in the head. Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Sara Palin, John Ashcroft, Mr. Blunt and a host of others are merely pointing it out to him.
He, unfortunately, keeps saying "It's only a flesh would"
What he said was incredibly stupid. It hurt the party, it hurt the pro-life movement, by making it harder to regain the senate, it hurt America. It was incredibly insensitive to rape victims. ("You're pregnant, that proves it wasn't really rape. I bet you really liked it when that gang of thugs beat the hell out of you then ravaged your body").
Being smart enough to be a senator is an incredibly low bar, but he doesn't get over it. He has got to go.
Excellent and I couldnt have said it better myself. That is what I hate about the GOP gutless wonders that they are. They are not fit to govern when they panic about bad media and fear the dems trashtalking. I long for the day when SOMEONE from the GOP stands up and says GO TO HE**. Pansy-a&& weenies - the lot of them.
