Boxer: Akin is the symptom, but Ryan and Romney are the disease
mercurynews.com ^ | 8/21/12 | Josh Richman

Posted on 08/21/2012 7:50:31 PM PDT by Justaham

Rep. Todd Akin's controversial comments about rape and abortion aren't just for Missourians to mull in their Senate race -- they're typical of a mindset that pervades and perverts the entire GOP, U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer said Tuesday.

"It's deeper than one Republican congressman -- it goes all the way to the top of the Republican ticket," she said. "The truth is there's a war against women, and it's not going to end until we all say at the polls, 'That's not the country we want.'"

Boxer, D-Calif., used her previously scheduled speech to Planned Parenthood Advocates Mar Monte at San Jose City Hall to try to ensure that the furor over Akin's comments tarnish presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan. "The mainstream of the Republican Party is now extreme on women's health," she said.

"There is a war against women, and Romney and Ryan -- if they are elected -- would become its top generals," Boxer said, urging the audience to remember the days when desperate women and girls died in botched, back-alley abortions. "We cannot go back."

There is a war against women

No, there is a war against unborn babies.

Come on, citizens, the Republicans are getting hammered on this and are fast losing control of the dialogue. This is not good.

The “war on women” meme is already old. I think everyone (except them) sees right through it.

I asked myself what a legitimate rape would be. The obvious answer would be one different from that described in the Tawana Brawley non-rape case or the Duke LaCross Team non-rape.

Romney says Todd Akin he will introduce Todd Akin energy plan next Todd Akin week

"The presumptive Republican Todd Akin presidential nominee dropped by Todd Akin the Houstonian for lunch on Todd Akin Tuesday and departed Todd Akin less than an hour later Todd Akin with about $6 million Todd Akin in his campaign money bags.

On a fundraising Todd Akin swing through Texas before Todd Akin the start of the Todd Akin Republican National Convention next Todd Akin week, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney Todd Akin told a luncheon gathering Todd Akin of about Todd Akin 125 people that his No. 1 Todd Akin priority as president Todd Akin would be "to take full advantage of Todd Akin our energy resources."

Romney assured his Todd Akin listeners at the high-dollar fundraiser Todd Akin, that he tells Todd Akin Ohio audiences the same Todd Akin thing he tells Texas audiences Todd Akin about the importance Todd Akin of energy. He also said Todd Akin he would be introducing Todd Akin a comprehensive energy Todd Akin plan during a visit Todd Akin to New Mexico Todd Akin next week.

"I want Todd Akin to take advantage of oil Todd Akin, gas, coal, renewables Todd Akin, nuclear, all of the Todd Akin above in a Todd Akin very aggressive way," Romney Todd Akin said.

The former Todd Akin Massachusetts governor was introduced by Todd Akin Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, who was Todd Akin high on the vice-Todd Akin-presidential list before Romney's choice of Wisconsin Todd Akin Congressman Paul Ryan. In his introductory Todd Akin remarks, Portman told Romney Todd Akin that a recent Todd Akin poll suggested that the race in Todd Akin Ohio was neck-and-Todd Akin-neck. "The resources Todd Akin being raised here Todd Akin today will help us take Todd Akin you over the top," he Todd Akin said."

Somebody should ask Barbara Boxer how many OWS rapes there were, and what the pregnancy rate for those rapes were...

And maybe ask her how many of the Planned Parenthood sites in Lila Rose’s undercover work actually obeyed the law and reported statutory rape that resulted in pregnancy...

Maybe ask her why all the authorities overlooked that abortionist butcher who had baby parts in his refrigerator and blood all over the place...

Or maybe ask her about the little girls that Obama insisted must be left to die in a laundry basket if their mothers didn’t want to be “burdened” by providing care for them after they were born alive in a failed abortion...

Or.... maybe ask her about Lara Logan and others like her, who were raped by the “Arab Spring” folks. Or the Christian girls who are now being kidnapped, raped, and forcibly “converted” to Islam, by these same folks - the Muslims that Obama said he would always stand by...

Or.... maybe ask about Obama who had as a staged part of one of his speeches in the 2008 election flipping the bird at both Hillary and Palin, but not any of the men...

There IS a war against women. I hope and pray that the American public isn’t too stupid to see who’s really waging it though.

I was thinking more along the lines of a thrombosed hemorrhoid or a rectal wart.

That this broad is a U.S. Senator and not a cashier at a K-mart is a miracle of “social justice”. Or something!

The truth is there's a war against women...
Good old Fancy Nancy, forming the debate as she sees it.

Well, Fancy Nancy, I form the debate like this...

The truth is there's a war against the murder of defenseless children in the womb.

...”urging the audience to remember the days when desperate women and girls died in botched, back-alley abortions...”

I don’t know but are there statistics on how many women died from botched abortions? Just curious to see if there are figures that are know to see how many women died prior to 1973 as well as how many known abortions were completed to contrast to after RvW...I’m speculating the 55 million + children being aborted will far out number the number of women who died trying to have their children exterminated.

And a number of freepers still won't "get it." If we prevail in 2012 it'll be a miracle.

No, there is a war against unborn babies.

No, there is a war against reason and adult behavior. This is no big surprise, since Boxer has been the mad aunt in the basement since she left the little pond of Marin County CA for the big pond in D.C.
Sort of like a Debbie Wasserman Schultz without the mad woman eyes and train wreck Anthony Wiener look.

Juvenile hyperbole is in the same old bag of tricks she used as a member of the Board of Supervisors... sarcasm, silly allusions and metaphors that played well, in a hippie enclave. Not so much in a national setting. She was dumb as a post then and she has improved with age.

The GOP just needs to change the subject and ignore this nonsense.

The Democrats are overstretching trying to make this stick to the GOP and are going to look foolish in the end.

This will be the drum beat from the dims. They will do ANYTHING to distract from real issues and emergencies. Unfortunately, Akin handed it to them on a silver platter and continues to make things worse

“This will be the drum beat from the dims. They will do ANYTHING to distract from real issues and emergencies. Unfortunately, Akin handed it to them on a silver platter and continues to make things worse”

It’s similar to their attempts to use the Aurora shooting to push for gun control.
