So, he misspoke, mostly by using the term “legitimate rape.” Big deal. Politicians misspeak often, since they are on the campaign trail, talking all the time. This would not even be a news item if it were not for the Communist, baby-killing liars who run our press, and the Republican cowards who don’t dare face them down.
Instead of saying that he should retire, because of ONE thoughtless word—for which he has apologized—why the hell can’t the so-called conservatives and pro-lifers point out that he was BASICALLY RIGHT. Rape is a terrible thing, but you can’t solve it by killing the innocent baby who is occasionally conceived by rape. Killing the innocent is MURDER, even in the case of rape.
How about pointing that out? Or pointing out that the news media have a propaganda program that they are pushing here? Namely, all of them want to kill as many babies as possible, and this gives them a good chance to do it. Romney, who has a considerable record of support for abortion, has already caved in to the propaganda monster, and said that he approves of government-supported abortions in all cases of rape.
This firestorm will not be solved by urging a basically decent candidate to pull out because the baby killers have managed to make him a convenient symbol. It will only be solved if cdonservatives start pointing out what is REALLY GOING ON HERE—that the baby killers have seized upon a minor gaffe by an obscure politician to push their abortion agenda—and all the cowardly Republicans are jumping on their propaganda bandwagon.
That not only is the wrong response morally, it is a stupid response politically. It is playing the enemy’s game, and letting them write the rules.
Excellent read Cicero!
...and sometimes, doing what is right,
is better strategy in the long run,
than doing what is cowardly.
(especially when Ryan co-authored that Bill with Akin.
if you throw Akin under the bus, eventually,
you do the same to Ryan.)
