McCaskill avoided the question “Libya/Egypt”. Instead talks about Iraq under Bush.

McCaskill is advocating pulling the infrastructure money going to Iraq and Afghanistan.

[YOU are in the Senate, do something! She is trying to run against GW Bush and those wars, but Obama is in charge of them, as of January 20, 2009.]

Hee hee....he is ON:) with hold money to Eygpt until they start acting like our ally. Akin said we made concessions to Russia and they haven’t done anything in return and we have shunned Netanyahu...he is right.
Akin’s son served in Iraq and Afghanistan...he is a marine combat engineer...locates bombs.

McCaskill twice invoking Harry Truman spinning in his grave.

Does the president from 60 years ago resonate with anyone?

One thread this morning indicated that DeMint may be considering releasing funds to Akin.

[This is the first time I have ever heard him, except for his non-apology statement. I am impressed.]

McCaskill basically said a Federal Budget bill was irrelevant.

Akin says it is a Constitutional mandate.

Atkin is coming across as very seasoned, knowledgeable, and confident. His RAT opponent sounds uncertain and somewhat whiny and shrill.

Akin hanging sequestration around McCaskill’s neck.

McCaskill dodges, and claims there has been a budget the last two years.

Last Question....obesity (really?)

McCaskill (ooh - I better start sounding moderate!); Uhm, uhm, uhm, government shouldn’t tell people what to eat.

Way to go out there on a limb there.

McCaskill on obesity. Government should keep their noses out of that.

[What about Bloomberg and the 32-oz drinks? What about Michelle O’s sticking her nose in everyones menus and grocery purchases?]

[Government should keep their noses out of MANY things, but they don’t; they won’t.]

Oh I am thrilled with Akin:) can there be any doubt he should be our next senator from MO? here she goes on the food police...and quoting Moochelle Obama.
Thanks again ES....I am looking forward to comments by the gop establishment on Akin’s performance:) now, I am off to town.
God bless and have a great day. Akin was fantastic.

I’m not sure how many people are seeing/hearing the debates. I wish this got more exposure.

Akins may be at the mercy of the news shows picking which soundbites to run.

I’ll be interested in seeing where the polls go from here.

No way McCaskill could rise.

Good debate for Akin. I think he will rise in the polls.

If I didn’t know better, I think Reagan was working with Todd in his closing statement.

That is a good point. Hopefully people will be able to view the saved stream. The libtard press will not want people to see Todd beat that dumb donkey like a drum.

AWESOME closing statement by Akin!

Akin definitely had a strong showing. How many more debates are there?

McCrakel was nothing but a witch throwing insults at Todd during the whole debate and with no substance. Todd stood his ground and presented his arguments in a relaxed but forceful manner with substance. His knowledge and experience of how Congress works really came out. I’m proud of the candidate we have running against the Obama clone. Today was a new beginning for victory come Nov. 6th. The next Senator for Missouri will be Todd Akin. Bye,bye McCrakel. Your term is up.

Yes, she voted for Obamacare.

We hounded her at all the town hall meetings and she still didn’t listen to us!

She also said at one of those meetings that we could fire her if we didn’t approve of her performance...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLJIpD-T7pU

I intend to take her to task on that one!

Cheers

All Missourians who are interested in helping Akin can call the MO Republican Party 573-636-3146 and tell them to release GOP funds to support Akin’s campaign.

You’re right; the American people aren’t very smart. Any teacher can tell you that in a moment of candor. But there is always the “talented tenth.”

McCaskill was the 60th vote that put Obamacare over the line to pass. Her vote was the one that did it.

Hehehehe. Exactly what I was thinking. Rove is the epitome of what is wrong with the GOPe.

We’re all on Romney about this campaign but I think the GOP is the real problem on all fronts. They don’t have any signs for us in Bucks County, PA and when my friend went to their office the second time to ask, it was closed. I’m not seeing any ads from them, what the hell are they doing to win these elections?

And they have no right to turn on any candidate or to withold funds for any reason. I saw the Mentalist last night and he said something “No worse tyranny than petty tyranny.”

How true.

Same here in Missouri. I had to go to cafepress.com and order my stickers. And they don’t cheap. Been driving around and haven’t seen any other cars with them except mine. Really weird.

Think the GOP leadership is the ones who dropped the ball. That will be my next phone call to let them know what a useless piece of crap they are.

What a time to get stuck with a bunch of losers at the top of the party. Not fair to the people, just not fair.
