Obama: 'Rape is rape'

President Obama weighed in on the national storm surrounding by Rep. Todd Akin, calling his comments "offensive."

"The views expressed were offensive. Rape is rape," Obama said in a surprise appearance at the White House briefing.

"And the idea that we should be parsing and qualifying and slicing what types of rape we're talking about doesn't make sense to the American people. And certainly doesn't make sense to me," Obama said.

Obama is trying to make as much political hay out of this as possible. That’s why Aiken has to go.

Akin is political EMP for the GOP. Where the hell are Bohner, McConnell, and Preibus to demand his exit?

Didn't Whoppi Goldberg also make a distinction between rape and rape rape. I wonder if Obama got his panties in a bunch when she made that pronouncement. (about Roman Polanski).

Anything to keep him from having to talk about his failed record on jobs and the economy for another couple days, with the help of the mainstream media of course. I hate to break it to him though, when people enter the voting booth this fall Atkin's comments or Baine Capital or Romney's tax returns aren't whats going to be on their minds...

Whoopi Goldberg and other Hollywood liberals insisted that Roman Polanski wasn’t guilty of “rape rape” when he drugged and molested a 13-year old girl in his hot tub.

Barack Obama is a LYING HYPOCRITE and a sexist pig.

Yep and quickly. Obama was handed a momentary reprieve with this one. Get back on track, can the man, and get back on message - medicare - economy.

Obama and Eric Holder’s injustice department didn’t give a DemocRat’s ass about child rape.

Prison rape doesn’t result in pregnancy.
Oral rape doesn’t result in pregnancy.
Anal rape doesn’t result in pregnancy.
Rape of young minors and the elderly doesn’t result in pregnancy.

But apparently according to Barry, those aren’t rape rape.
