Oh good, another tangent that diverts attention away from the terrible state of the country under Obama. Thanks Mr. Akin!
That jerk needs to step down asap and let Steelman run and win.
Akin was answering a question....the people making a mountain out of it are: mercenary liberals who will try and make hay off of any gaffe AND pants-wetting conservatives who give the liberals encouragement.
This wasn't an "off the cuff" remark. He was asked the question directly. If he had refused to answer and tried to change the subject, the media would have blown that all out of proportion.
Don't blame Akin - blame the media for doing all they can to avoid talking things that show how dramatically Obama has failed.
I said this would happen last night.
EXIT:Discussion about the economy.
ENTER:Discussion about rape, pregnancy and male GOP members basic understanding of the female reproductive system.
For those keeping points at home, anytime the Republicans get off-message and away from talking about the horrendous economy, Obama gets a little closer to being re-elected. I’m hoping this whole incident didn’t short-circuit the momentum that Ryan had created for this entire campaign.
