Skip to comments.MISSOURI: THE 'SHOW ME ANOTHER G.O.P. CANDIDATE' STATE
Posted on 08/23/2012 12:59:59 PM PDT by Clintonfatigued
Akin was not even the clear choice of conservatives. In the primary, John Brunner was endorsed by both Missouri Right to Life and the National Right to Life. Sarah Steelman was endorsed by Sarah Palin. Akin was endorsed by the Democratic Party.
The Democrats carefully nurtured Akin with millions of dollars in campaign money because he was the candidate they most wanted to run against. (Akin thinks all those Democrats voting for him in the primary merely shows that he's got tremendous crossover appeal!)
There's no rehabilitating this guy. It's a waste of money. His comments are going to cost Republicans an easy Senate seat in a moment of crisis for the nation. This one man's stubborn refusal to bow out could cost us control of the U.S. Senate, House seats in Missouri, Senate seats elsewhere and maybe even the White House itself.
Other than that, there's not all that much riding on this.
But this selfish man has decided to play a game of chicken with the Republican Party. He thinks that by stubbornly refusing to step aside, Republicans will be forced to give him money simply because they need that Senate seat.
Republicans should call his bluff. This is no time to be counting on people to check the FEC reports to see that the GOP has cut off his money.

I've been suggesting the name of Ann Wagner here for several days now. I think she would be the best choice. (She's running in the district I live in.)
Aaaah, Ann Coulter, the pro-Romney hag who was vilified mercilessly on FR just some months ago is now a “voice of reason” in all of this?
Spare me. She’s displayed her colors and they aren’t conservative. RINO. Which means she plays for the GOP-e team. The same team that is busy voraciously eating one who it considers a mutant within its ranks.
I wonder, what would have happened if the GOP had circled the wagons around Mr. Akin and basically told the media and Dems to shove off?
Helped a wounded warrior vs. leaving him to die alone? Where is the honor in this?
Show me what is conservative about Mutt Romney or Christie Creme, Ann. And ask him for a donut while you’re at it.
That was not a decisive factor. Akin would have won anyway. McCaskill's TV ads had more of an effect. "Too extreme for Missouri"? OK, Claire, we know what you're doing, but we'll vote for him anyway and still beat you. But we weren't counting on Akin self-destructing so badly.
That picture has been photoshopped. He doesn't look that bad.
In five days this Akin non-story will be as pertinent as the “Romney Pulled a Homo Kid's Hair in High School” story.
Id love to slap the faces of the democrats that crossed over and voted for Akin.
What would you like to do to all the Democrats who crossed over and voted for Romney ???
Thanks to the fact that Akin is a fool she will probably win.
Claire was counting on it, and you can't say she was wrong.
Non story until election night and he loses.
I used Photoshop plastic surgery to give him the nose of a real pig...
If he loses, it will be due to the likes of the surrender monkeys at this forum.
He’s not a warrior, he’s a politician.
Maybe not in reality, that bad, but... perception is reality, and in my mind that picture is his true self...
Count your artistic product as in-kind contribution to McCaskill.
Hey you... knock,knock,knock... that idiot Akin is helping even less... I only disliked his persona before I heard him try to sound smart, now, he’s a blooming idiot in my mine... I will write in my own candidate if he does not get out...
“Oh please, I didn’t mean it. Forgive me!! I wanna wanna wanna be a Senator and be set for life.”
That’s it, ego before party, ego before country, ego before beliefs.
Metaphor, but I guess that went right over your head.
Again, where is the honor in this? Conservatives talk of things like courage, principles, faith, honor, conviction, etc. But it’s just talk when it comes from Republicans.
What I do see on display right now is the wholesale vilification of a few here on FR by so called “conservatives” thirsting for blood.
Been seeing too much of it on FR lately to tell the truth.
