I have had a feeling all along that Missourians will remember how Claire sold us out to Obama and do the right thing come Nov. 6th. If Newt targets all his attention to helping Todd in these final days by helping Todd attack the Obama clone (McCaskill), he will win big and give us a true conservative Senator for Missouri.

Onward amd Upward! Some good news at last! Thank you, Newt!
Stupid, stupid GOPe!
...if he loses and it results in two more years of Boss Reid—he will be damned for all time.
Either result will be his personal responsibility alone.
Having said this, GO AKINS! STOMP THAT OBAMA TOOL!
The article has the tone of a funeral dirge. I call agitprop. The thing that really horrifies the WaCompost is that he might well win the seat in spite of their sage words.
It is becoming easy to see how the “Akin effect” has faded; just look at warren now down 6 vs Brown in Mass. with a sample of 55% Democrats.
Godspeed, Todd Akin! Todd is on track to win the Missouri Senate seat!
That's not enough to win an election and it sounds like famous last words.
Amazing the things God gets blamed for.
This entire episode is ridiculous. If the voters there are too stoopid to know what they want, they get what they deserve. Unfortunately, the rest of the Nation gets that consequence as well.
I got a fundraising call yesterday from the NRSC. The guy started on his usual speal about how we need four seats, so I cut him off and asked if the NRSC had started funding Todd Akin’s campaign yet. He said no, and I started yelling at him, telling him how John Cornyn wouldn’t bat an eye to fund Arlen Specter, Charlie Crist, Olympia Snowe, Lisa Murkowski, etc. but Akin was cut off without a cent for saying something stupid. I told him in no uncertain terms to pass the message along that I wanted conservtives to be supported, not worthless moderates, then hung up. It felt really good!
Well... I’m not holding my breath waiting for the RiNoC to re-release their funding for Todd Akin. So, I’ve taken the initiative and pumped some cash directly into his campaign.
That is good news. It's time to start countering Clairebelle's leftwaffe who have dominated the airwave's for the last month bombarding the populace with her propaganda leftlets. The way she has been talking about her moderation in the Senate one would think that she was the GOP candidate.
Meanwhile, he’s an article on the GOPe reaching its end, from an unexpected source—Scott Rassmussen:
With Romney far ahead of Obama in Missouri I can’t believe the voters there would vote for Romney and then turn around and vote for McCaskill..it ain’t gonna happen.
Up until now, the majority of the pushback against the GOP leadership has come from Christian conservatives who believe — correctly in my opinion — that the real reason for the attack on Akin is fear that the official Republican position against abortion even in cases of rape is a losing position with voters.
I have been saying for a month now that Akin’s comment was really stupid, but the attack on Akin is all out of proportion to the original offense.
Until Newt Gingrich stepped in, it looked like the Missouri senate race was going to turn into a situation where conservative Christians were left on their own, and basically were going to have to raise money on our own, on a national basis, to replace normal national Republican funding.
Gingrich getting involved is a game changer. Having Mike Huckabee and James Dobson support Akin was important, but not surprising. Gingrich's support sends an entirely different and very important message.
I have defended and provided evidence for Gingrich's personal faith in the past, and also argued that a Christian conservative can legitimately vote for Gingrich because the Romans 13 standards for civil office and the example of King David show that we should not strictly apply the personal family life standards of I Timothy and Titus, which are qualifications for pastors, elders and deacons, to those serving in civil office. Gingrich's personal faith is not the issue. Regardless of his personal faith, during the primary election, he got identified as the main antagonist of Christian conservatives in the ultimately unsuccessful attempt to stop Mitt Romney. If Gingrich has coattails, and I strongly believe that he does, his involvement will bring an entirely different group of people who are mad at the Republican leadership into the fight for Akin.
It is no secret that I did not support Gingrich's campaign until Rick Santorum dropped out, but then said Gingrich was our last option to stop Romney. I am very glad to see that Gingrich is willing to support Todd Akin — and his support could be a very important signal turning on financial spigots that until now have been unavailable to Akin.
This is a very good thing. Christian conservatives and more secular conservatives have much more in common with each other than either of us have with a fair number of people in the Republican establishment, and all of us have more in common with each other than we do with the Democrats.
Well, I do hope Newton can help, but MO people don’t like to vote for losing candidates. I admire Akin for sticking with his campaign after the grand poo-bahs told him to exit the race.
Translation - internal polls are starting to show that Akin is not getting blown out like the GOP-e feared and has a very good chance of still winning so they will now throw some money his way so they can claim to have helped secure the victory.
Good news for Akin!
I am sure the PhonyCons who want him out will have some spin on this news....oh well, Claire still loves ya
The GOP was stupid trying to force Akin out...he won the primary, and the GOPe candidate finished THIRD. Who was the GOP going to replace Akin with?
Good that Newt Gingrich is going up to MO to help fundraise.
