Posted on 09/07/2012 3:15:00 PM PDT by Red Steel
"We're going to be here through the November election, and we're going to be here to win."
Those were the words of Republican Rep. Todd Akin late last month as he vowed to press on with his campaign to unseat Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill in Missouri,
Well, don't look now but Akin appears to have climbed his way back into the race despite the battering he's taken from both sides of the aisle.
...Akin clawing his way back within one point of the Missouri Democrat in the (liberal-leaning) PPP survey and into a three-point lead in the (conservative-leaning) Wenzel Strategies poll.

FReeper heads explode!
Just when Obama was desperate for something to attack, Akin steps up!
We drove all the way through Missouri from St. Louis to Joplin this past weekend.
The billboards we saw and radio stations we heard all really do support Akin.
not mine :)
The left calls us Nazis and accuses us of all kinds of craziness. Yet this man said ONE THING out of pocket and apologized...lets move on and support him.
It’s a red state that voted for McCain. How many people do they think are going to show up and vote against Obama but for McCaskill? It’s hard to imagine the thought process in someone’s mind that could lead them to do that. It’s going to be an even bigger red state than last time and Romney’s coattails will help the Republican Senate ticket.
I wonder what Rove and the Geriatric Old Plotters will do to set this back.
Anything and everything.
NOBODY GAF ABOUT THIS ISSUE WHEN PEOPLE ARE OUT OF WORK SCRAPPING FOR MONEY TO EAT, PAY THEIR BILLS, AND PUT GAS IN THEIR CAR TO GET TO A JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
NOBODY GAF ABOUT A SENATOR FROM MO’S ONE DUMB COMMENT EXCEPT FOR YOU SO-CALLED CONSERVATIVES WHO CANNOT LET THIS SHIT DIE!!!!!!!!!!
*drops mic walks away.
I’m not sure we should “support” Akin, but if he wins I will laugh in the face of the Lame Stream Media and say - nobody listens to your c__p anymore!!
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2928062/posts reports are that Akin is out of money. If both reports are true, Akin needs to get his act together, put out the word that he’s still in the race and competitive, and start raking in the contributions and spending them.
McCaskill at 42% AFTER the Akin debacle tells me there is no chance she can win. I felt at the time he should have gotten out, and I wish he had, but we go to battle with the soldier we have, and I support Akin for the win. He’s a fine congressman, and he’ll be a good Senator. His only negative is that he is a potential political liability for the next 60 days. If he continues to lead, he’ll raise more than enough money down the stretch to win it. Our base has won for countless candidates in the last three years. Picking off the repulsive McCaskill is incentive enough to send money in a few weeks if Akin looks to be in a good position.
How possibly could he be in the race? All the GOPE told us that he was a disaster and would not only lose his race but the senate and possibly;y the White House and House. Could they have been wrong, Again?
NcCaskel is a train wreck. Aikin said one thing a little silly, but McCaskil is just plain wrong on everything. She will lose as she deserves to.
The GOPe and RINO’s are going to be pee ode
I’d like to see the party affiliation. Until the numbers come from Ras and other outlets, I won’t put much weight on PPP (that came up with Akin +1 the day before he could resign, with R+9 sample) or any poll sponsored by Parkins. More importantly, only after Sep 25 we see the real numbers, whether those who say to support him real or the Dhims playing operation chaos.
This may turn out to be a “learning moment.” Trent Lott’s innocent comment to Thurmond got him demoted when it shouldn’t have. I am not defending linguini-spined Lott, but speaking against allowing the left and the media to destroy people, as is their wont.
Akin chose his words poorly, if it can be said he chose them at all, and a mistake of that sort should not eliminate otherwise capable candidates.
Not mine either. I will be damned if I will be told how to think by either the MSM or the Republican party establishment. Democrats can commit felonies, and all is forgiven, but let a Conservative get a zit, and all hell breaks lose. Jeez Louise, I hope Akin wins,
Claim that he's running out of money and not paying his bills... it's already happening. These people really would rather a Democrat win than a conservative.
People had better wake up. Akin is PRO LIFE. Not pro DEATH. The DNC just celebrated and cheered DEATH.
I will try to send him some money, it sounds like he needs it.
Karl Rove is in trouble now ~ all the Senate candidates are going to want him to threaten to murder them ~
If you bought any “Intrade” shares for McCaskill to win... now would be the time to sell... and fast.
“These people really would rather a Democrat win than a conservative.
Oh, they have proved that over and over. The masks were off with the O’Donnell race, Murkowski, and other contests. The Geriatric Old Plotters are holes in our bucket.
As everybody recalls, Akin’s numbers went down, but McCaskill’s didn’t go up. That’s usually a sign she’s not popular.
the left has to get him past the next drop dead deadline.
This is their desperate bid to save obamacare and the senate.
Claire McCaskill is in trouble which is why she’s trying to distance herself from Obama and didn’t show at the democrat convention.
With Slate as the source, we should not expect the truth.
There was not a single thing wrong with what Akin said. Very few people have taken the time to learn it. The knee-jerk fear demonstrated the the GOPe and bulk of Freepers is astonishing. When it comes to the defense of innocent human life in the womb, it is beyond time to get in the media’s face, not to turn tail like a bunch of pus*ies. There was no need for Akin to apologize, but to clarify, and say it more forcefully: we’re dealing with innocent human life in it’s most vulnerable state.
Donated a pittance to Akin today, and as opportunity allows, hope to donate more. Meanwhilke there’s a whole lotta Freepers who need to pull their head out and learn a little about truth, and a good many who wouldn’t know spine if it hit ‘em in the face.
I guess Karl Rove will be sending some of his SuperPAC money to McCaskill.
You go Todd, don’t let those b**tards from both sides of the fence stop you.
Dems can make that up easily. Looks like the polls will be open late in St. Louis again...
I believe weve turned the corner in the eyes of most Republicans, Tyler said, arguing the national GOP remains a problem for the campaign. If Todd does lose, it wont be Todds fault, he said. It will be their fault.
Don’t worry old ball-licker Rove will find some way to sabotage Akin...Gays are vicious but Republican Gays are rabid!
>> “A victory won over both the Democrats and the RINOs” <<
>> “FReeper heads explode!” <<
Just a small handful of idiots (essentially anti-freepers)
How inconvenient for the bandwagon jumpers that the guy's statement was born out by established research all along.
It was surely not what the feminazis or those cowed by them wanted to hear, but the data was there nonetheless.
If not for this shite economy vis a vis my little shop, I'd cut the guy's campaign a sizeable check tonight.
This just goes to show that the Media Mafia has limits. They were not going to drop this like a Reverend White controversy. They we going to pursue every GOP leader until they distanced themselves.
But there are limits. Akin is a relatively small target compared to Palin. Conventions to be held, hurricanes in the Gulf. Other ways to make the mainstream look bad. Akin is ignored and will be right back to his lead.
Alot of hand wringing here will seem silly.
Where are they now?
Just when the scaredy-cat corner of the conservative heart was desperate for something to run away from, it remembers how to obey the dictates of political correctness manufactured by the leftists.
We don’t expect you anti-freepers to support Akin, but you could just shut up.
I did what I said I’d do and sent Akin money, this morning I got a call from the RNC asking for more money, I told them I sent the money to Akin since they weren’t going to help him.
Next up: Missouri votes.
Akin because he will arrive pissed off at the GOP-E and will stay that way!
Trent Lott has always been a disaster.
He is a globalist fool that blocked much of the conservative agenda in the senate.
Akin will do just fine.
“We drove all the way through Missouri from St. Louis to Joplin this past weekend. The billboards we saw and radio stations we heard all really do support Akin.”
Good news. We need to send ObamaCare/ObamaClaire into retirement. Let her spend her golden years sticking pins into a Ronald Reagan voodoo doll and listening to interview reruns of Debbie Blabbermouth Shultz over and over again.
Rasmussen has him at 38% and down by 10. It was from two weeks ago, so maybe there’s been positive movement.
and heaven forbid we let Akin served in Congress but Jessie Jackson Jr. can stay in congress and keep collecting a pay for NO work..depressed...more than likely drugs...and a cover up...Akin mis spoke as many politicians do, in reagards to rape, and then a former president accused of rape and I feel use it more than like happened, Juanita sounder more creditable than a lot of those in Congress sound.
something is wrong with this picture......
so I say keep on fighting Akin...that is the kind of person we need...his background as a good person says more to me that one quote out of place.
go ahead and flame away...what ever cooks your goose.
