Skip to comments.Democrats make Akin rape remarks an issue in CA House race
Posted on 08/22/2012 5:52:51 PM PDT by SmithL
Democrats are working to make a Missouri congressman's controversial comment about rape an issue in the heated 7th Congressional District race.
Republican Rep. Todd Akin has come under fire from politicians on both sides of the aisle for saying in a televised interview that a woman's body has the ability to block pregnancy in cases of what he called "legitimate rape." He has apologized for the remarks, but rejected calls from Republican leaders and politicians, including presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, to drop his U.S. Senate campaign against Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill.
Rep. Dan Lungren, R-Gold River, denounced the comments in a statement posted to his campaign Twitter feed Tuesday.
"As a husband and father, I was deeply disturbed by the recent comments of Todd Akin," he said. "The ideas he expressed are simply incomprehensible."
His opponent, Elk Grove Democrat Ami Bera, and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee sought to tie the Republican incumbent to Akin. Bera, who has worked as a physician, targeted Lungren's support for legislation aimed at cutting federal funding for abortion in a release issued Tuesday.

RATs are desperate beyond words to describe their insanity, IMO.
Had Akin withdrawn immediately, as a sane person would have done after realizing the stupidity of their statement, this issue would be dead.
Instead it is consuming the race and killing the momentum Romney was starting to bid.
Akin’s hubris may wind up taking down the whole party.
The best and brightest Bee brains are at it again.. I stopped buying the Bee when they blamed us for 9/11 attacks.. we just don't try to "understand" the rest of the world. Oh.. they did acknowledge that we were only part to blame.
I agree. They look ridiculous. It is becoming all too obvious that they want to talk about anything other than the state of the economy, the debt, the massive deficits, and Obamacare. They want to distract from issues rather than offer solutions.
Good, the suckers are wasting their money instead of spending it on something that might actually be effective.
Yes. On the decision of one man, civilization itself hangs in the balance.
The movie 2016 will bring everyone back to reality as well as the Special Ops YouTube, “Dishonorable Disclosures.” The American people are big-time angry and nothing the RATs do will pacify us.
The hourly BS coming from the Left proves they think their old playbook will work again. The fact is that the patience of the American people is over. Barry and the Left’s corruption and lies have been exposed and we want them voted out and gone come November 6.
What the hell is “legitimate rape.” Someone want to tell this scuba diver what the heck He was trying to say?
And this shut down business, Need some help there as well
Ya know the old adage..
Never pass up a chance to toss cowpie..
The AKIN-ization of an entire party’s candidates is sickening but not unexpected from a group of desperate maroons like the DEms.
Nobody in the English speaking word had heard the expression “legitimate rape” prior to the genius’ from Missouri invention of it! And to this day nobody knows what the genius meant by it.
If the Pro-Abort PhonyCons would just shut up...go back with their Democrat friends...and get off Akin’s case. He is not going to quit...get over it. The Pro-Life Conservatives won.
Yes they are... Just think, the week of Dem convention crappy jobs and economic data will be coming out and they will be talking about abortion.. This could back fire on them.
Seems I remember reading about the head of an abortion clinic who quit when she saw a video of an actual abortion. That video needs to be shown at a dem convention since it is what they are wanting to be defined by.
They need to get off these distractions thrown up by the rats and focus on the economy.
If American only knew...
The best Obama exposure site on the net:
(by our own FReeper, Beckwith)
The Obama File
The United States Library of Congress has selected
TheObamaFile.com for inclusion in its historic collection
of Internet materials
Just a few of the pages:
The PeePee & Cooter Party, hard at work. The rank and file can spend all their time becoming experts on their private parts, because BigBrain Obama takes care of thinking about the hard stuff.
Way to paint inaccurately with a broad brush... It is because I am pro-life that I want that idiot Akin to quit.
Is the best treatment for a rape the murder of a baby?
At this point, Akin is as big a threat to the pro-life movement as Obama is.
And so it starts.
Akin is radioactive. The commie press will repeat his insane remark 24 hours a day every day until hes gone, using it to try and tar every other Republican in 2012 and to avoid having to report on the economy and Obamas record in general. This is what the commie media have been waiting for: a way to define Republicans as extremist nut jobs, and Akin is their perfect storm. I dont care who he is or what he stands for, Akin has simply got to go. Period.
