Nice try Debbie no one but the loony left with put that statement with any Republican
I don’t seem to recall Debbie condemning #OWS for the multiple rapes- and coverups of those rapes- that occurred there. In fact, Nancy Pelosi praised them for their “spontaneity”.
The damage this moron (Akin) has done is incalculable.
The damage being done on some other threads tonight is incalculable as well.
What damage, people with common sense realizing that the Democrat controlled Media will milk this for everything it's worth?
Denial, it isn't just a river in Egypt. Akins bows out or every Republican running for Office will be stained with his idiotic comments.
Its going to be the new idiotic leftist litmus test for conservatives.
“So, when a woman gets raped, do you feel its possible for her to get pregnant?”
It’s a question that previously wouldn’t have warranted an actual response but thanks to this idiot, now its fair game.
If I don’t end up with a Ulcer by the time November rolls around, I’ll probably just be dead from a Heart Attack or Stroke.
Akin just decapitated any chance the GOP had of taking the Senate. The damage resulting from his statement resonates far beyond MO. The chances of Obamacare being repealed died as well.
Somewhere tonight, Harry Reid, his majority leader position assured, is breathing a huge sigh of relief.
Unforced errors kill us every time.
If he steps down, and someone with common sense takes his place, the damage can be minimized, however I don’t see this taking place without lawsuits by the Democrats, dragging this issue out further.
This is a big hit eitherway you look at it, ultimately the best thing for the GOP is to cut this guy off completely, exile him, let him go find a job in the private sector and stay out of politics.
If he stays on the ballot, he’s going to be an albatross all the way through until November.
It appears that the dumbass, DNC commie libs have confused the Republicans with their pals the Muzzies.
I cannot believe this idiot has screwed up so bad. He could cost us the senate or worse, the presidency! Akin you idiot! In Google news, this isn’t headline anymore, but no doubt the outlets will highlight it tomorrow. Something big needs to go down tonight to overshadow it. Perhaps Assad getting killed or Greece leaving the Eurozone. The DNC is such a opportunistic rat nest that they’ll be milking this for money, not to mention Salad Crowley will bring it up in the debates. Akin should step down. Now.
This guy has to step down NOW. The sooner he does, the sooner this story can be swept under the rug. We cannot allow jack-o-lantern McCaskill to keep her seat and Akin will lose for sure. Somebody call Rove and get him to apply some pressure.
That’s just stoopit.
I’m glad for women’s rights. When they go off to work I don’t have to talk them so much and they get to spend all their money cuz they earned it.
So, when a woman gets raped, do you feel its possible for her to get pregnant?
Its a question that previously wouldnt have warranted an actual response but thanks to this idiot, now its fair game.
This line of questioning almost seems to suggest that the questioner is willing to proceed with that hypothetical as a personal challenge.
It won’t matter, the MSM smells blood in the water.
Akin is not just an idiot. He is a dirtbag who deserves what he gets.
Isn’t that before the idiot spoke?
NO -- that happened when Mitt Romney won the nomination.
Sure, the Dems will milk this and the media, Akin will press hard with ads about Claire's very pro-abort record, voting for ObamaCare.
This is not Akin’s first time to say something controversial. It is not good, I agree, but it is also not going to cause a loss to Claire.
He did not say something controversial. He has the brain of a total idiot. That he is a gov’t rep is an indictment of his electorate.
As in recent campaigns, voters rate social issues including gun control, abortion, birth control and gay marriage as far less important than the economy or jobs. About half of registered voters (47%) say gun control will be very important to their vote for president this fall; even fewer rate abortion (39%), birth control (34%) and gay marriage (28%) as very important. By wide margins, the economy (86% very important) and jobs (84%) are the top voting issues.
Republican voters are more likely than Democrats to view abortion and gay marriage as very important. About half of Republicans (51%) rate abortion as very important to their vote, compared with 40% of Democrats.
Pew poll 4/2012
Does anybody remember the fuss she made about Woopie’s “rape rape” comment, when defending Roman Polanski?
>Nice try Debbie no one but the loony left with put that statement with any Republican<
Don’t bet on that. The liberals on Facebook and on Twitter will saturate the bandwidth with this dreck, no matter how incorrect it is.
And people who are not political junkies will be horrified.
My point was not about who will win. It is solely about this man being a total effin moron. It’s pathetic that this is a possible first lever to pull down.
Give the Democrat Media a week make this topic #1.
It appears the only reason this isn't a blaring headline is because Tony Scott jumped off a bridge last night.
I am not defending his dumb-ass comments, I am simply saying I know MO voters and they will not vote for ObamaClaire.
Voters in other states will not switch to Obama because of Akin.
I will pray that you are correct, but the Rats are already fishing for Donations because of this.
They are attempting to tie this Idiot to Romney / Ryan and they will pull it off as another Battle the Republicans are waging in their War On Women.
I think the guy should fall on his sword for the sake of the Party and the Country. The more he attempts to defend his comments, the worse it will become.
I disagree. This was far more than a stupid statement. This reveals a stupid man. If a Dem did it, we would be all over him. Both sides have sunk so low that we make excuses for people who have no business being in Congress.
I do not care about Mr. Akin. I want to win that seat. Now if the National RNC or New York or Boston know 100% that without him, Claire will lose, kick him out.
But those MO voters have kept him in office for 20 years, so you better be sure you do not piss them off. You and I have an opinion, but we don't get to vote. So just make damn sure we do not lose this because MO Republicans like stupid Senators and the rest of us do not.
Lots of politicians are creeps and get re-elected: Marion Barry did drugs, Gingrich cheated while complaining about cheating, Cianci, a host of Illinois Dems. There are plenty of examples on both sides.
Until both sides of the aisle grow a backbone, the trend will continue and we will be forced to have a congress of idiots and people of no morality, because too many people vote for trash.
I am sick of Republicans jumping on fellow Republicans but not one Republican uttered a word of criticism about Harry Reid when he said on floor, Romney paid no taxes.
I live in a solid conservative state and if Republicans in Congress had governed as solid conservatives we would not be pissing our pants having to worry about one senate seat.
Our leaders in the House and Senate can jump on Akin quickly, but jump right in line behind Dems when it comes to increasing the debt, attacking anyone who says we might want to examine Muslims in govt.
Now Akin may not get out, then what? RNC not going to support him$. All of those Republicans denouncing him in public now run as ads? We really are the stupid party.
