"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,
