@nbcnightlynews : MT @chucktodd: Romney now officially calls on Akin to exit the race. He had been implying that, but hadn't directly said it. Now, he has

When he goes to Washington, he becomes OUR idiot.
Thats up to Missouri to decide.
That’s the correct answer for everyone in The Stupid Party.
Imagine being raped and getting pregnant. Akin would doubt that the rape occurred. That's pretty sick and completely re-traumatizes and re-victimizes that rape victim for the rest of her life.
And the mother-to-be may more likely then abort the child out of her obvious complicit "guilt" in the crime.
Aside from that I'm hearing Akin now just being so arrogant in general to Hannity.
He's gotta go. The more I hear from him the LESS I like this man, his lack of objectivesness, and his limited capacity for good judgement.
This man can't see the forest for his priceless pretty pear tree...and he parses and pushes.
I’m CEO of a company. EVERY issue of my “employees” that affects my business is . . . MY business. This is Romney’s business, esp if this dunderhead costs us the senate and makes it difficult to fix Obama’s mess.
Time for people to stop making excuses, explanations, and the like and WIN THE BALL GAME.
Go Mitt. Kick this guy's @$$ out of Missouri.
Aiken only has another hour to drop out according to the law.
I agree, LS.
There were a lot of “P”’s in that last sentence...
If FR now populated mostly by idiots?
Look, I HATE abortion, and would go to nearly any length to see it ended, but we MUST face the facts here!
THERE IS NOTHING a senator can do about it! In fact, there is VERY LITTLE a President can do about it - it was found to be a constitutional right by the USSC! All the President can do is appoint Original Constructionists to the USSC and wait for a case that would overturn Roe v. Wade to come up .
For that to happen we MUST have a President that will appoint Original Constructionist jurists AND a Senate that will confirm them!
Idiot Akin just gave the left a target and a huge talking point that will haunt the entire GOP thru election day!
Like it or not, too many Americans support abortion “rights” and WILL NOT vote for an idiot that says what Aiken said.
We HAVE to win the November battle BEFORE we can take on the wider war on abortion, homosexual “mainstreaming”, etc.
QUIT using your beloved principles to insure that the right LOSES!
“Why is Romney lowering himself to speak on this issue that Missouri needs to hash out?”
Because the master of divinity is making an ass of himself. If people can’t bring themselves to vote for the dim bulb, they might tar the rest of the GOP as being just as stupid as he. There’s no reason Romney should have to deal with this guys nutty theory 75 more times, and in every debate. So he has dealt with it. If anyone accuses him of believing that women can repel enemy kamikaze sperm, he can say “I don’t agree with that nut Akins, and never have, not once”.
Romney would like to win MO, even if we are going to lose the senate seat.
No wild claim, Claire did run ads for Akin.
As of the posting of this reply, Todd Akin has the better part of an hour yet....
But sometimes ego knows no bounds. He keeps hearing these voices saying, “Stay the course, boy!”
Most of them inside his own head.
“I would have just condemned his stupid remarks. I am not sure how an open call for his resignation helps.”
It makes it almost impossible to successfully hang Akins stupidity around his neck.
Good. The more Republicans of all stripes, from RINOs to Tea Partiers, repudiate him, the better chance we get to repeal ObamaCare.
Stupidity on Romney’s part. He’s going to disenfranchise Akin voters over a silly gaffe.
