Skip to comments.Priebus: GOP ‘Not Going to Play in MO with Todd Akin’ (No RNC Money for Akin)
Posted on 09/23/2012 1:41:37 PM PDT by Windy City Conservative
Reince Priebus expressed optimism this morning that Republicans could win the senate in 2012, but warned that the party would not get behind Todd Akin, even if he refused to exit the race.
Were not going to play in Missouri with Todd Akin, I can tell you that, Priebus said on ABCs This Week, adding that it remained to be seen whether he stays in or not. The last day Akin can legally leave the race is Tuesday.

If he wins, he will obviously get his revenge. He may even caucus with the Democrats if he’s the swing.
How do Republicans get around with all the bullet holes in their feet?
Exhibit A why I will never give a dime to these bustards.
If we lose the Senate because of this, there WILL be consequences. You’re talking about possibly deep sixing the repeal of Obamacare, etc. Party before country .... bunch of traitors, all of ‘em.
reminder to self........send another donation to Akin today!
Naah, instead Akin will not tow the GOPe party line.
Good. Waste of money. Akin stands NO chance. Put the money elsewhere where we have a Senate pickup shot.
Akin is not going to caucus with the Dems; but he might join up in the formation of the 3rd Party many of us are seeing as increasingly necessary, as the GOP becomes more and more morally corrupt under the horrendous leadership of Boehner and professional fundraisers and consultants.
LoL. ...He’s got better than a chance.
Well, Claire isn't so bad after all...
Remind us again, in at least one paragraph, why Akin stands NO CHANCE. Let’s see if you can be convincing.
Renice Priebus is not a Conservative
If the GOP does not take the Senate and the White House, the blame starts with him
Absolutely stupid to not fund a candidate because liberals got their panties in a wad over a comment...which Akin has repeatedly apologized for...
...Well actually the real reason for not supporting Akin is that he is a strong Social Conservative..and Renice does not like those conservatives
Why would anyone want to be a politician if their whole career can be ended by one slip of the tongue? It shows how the whole political system has gone down the toilet, that there is no discussion of the actual issues but only verbal stumbles, hidden microphone splice & dice tapes, ...
He’s too good a man to vote with the ‘Rats. And as to revenge: Rom 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
It will be satiSfaction enough when God gives him a nice victory, and when the day rolls around that the Rs come around with hat in hand, asking for his vote on an issue.
The ‘Rats are baby killers! Akin got INTO this whole swamp by trying to make a pro-life argument....based on info that ONCE WAS TAUGHT IN NURSING SCHOOL!
But for liberal Republicans (Snowe, Collins, Brown) they will pour generous amounts of cash out of their horn of plenty.
because liberals got their panties in a wad over a comment...which Akin has repeatedly apologized for...
No, ALL educated people were disgusted with his comments, and he can apologize , but he meant what he said . Let him condemn the whole concept of the magic uterus and all the toothless hillbillies that believe it.
It doesn’t matter what happens in November, they are NOT going to repeal CommieCare.
The Dems didn’t want Lieberman either ... until they needd him for the 60th seat. If Akin is their 50th (or Heaven forbid, 51st) seat needed to win back the Senate, they’ll be singing a different tune!
Were not going to play in Missouri with Todd Akin, I can tell you that, Priebus said
Priebus...you jerk...it’s not a game!
Hopefully, Newt’s support will help Akin win the election. Sounds like the voters are coming back to Akin.
The GOPe are pathetic.
Preibus pretty much locked himself into this position when he so publicly and forcibly threw Akin under the bus the day after the rape quote hit the air. Very poor decision making on his part.
He won't do that, but safe to say if he wins then Akin doesn't owe the GOP establishment anything.
Not sure Akin will lose. MO is a very conservative state.
I’m not an Akin fan but Claire’s radio ads are getting desperate...
I am an educated person; educated enough to not make- believe that Akin was talking about a “magic uterus”; that wasn’t what he was saying, it is only what Hollywood Republicans like S.E. Cupp decided he was saying.
Akin was describing a little known and unproven theory that in most cases, a woman who is raped does not become pregnant. It was not a good theory to bring up, since it is only a theory and not a strong one, but he did not say that a woman can voluntarily stop herself from becoming pregnant by her will alone. That’s just what S.E. Cupp (only heard of because she is supposedly pretty) decided to tweet to remain a cool kid. She’s a Hollywood Republican.
Go ahead and support McKaskill or whatever dinosaur moderate Republican you can find to take Akin’s place by Tuesday.
I loathe you and your attitude. Todd is a solid pro-life conservative. I'm voting for him, and sending him cash. What are you doing here? What is your DU handle?
I’m educated and sending money to Akin today~~
Spokeshave who will send another small donation.
The senate is already poisoned with liberal republicans in the super majority over conservatives, so whether Akin wins or loses won't have much impact. I give you Sen Rand Paul's most recent vanquished bill concerning withholding of foreign aid to Islamic terror states as exhibit A.
Why? The media couldn’t deep-six Akin. Why do it for them?
Never. Akin is one of the most conservative members of Congress—97.24 lifetime ACU rating. He is not a Specter or Jeffords.
He does that, and those various-stripes of Republicans who called for his withdrawal (mind you, not just GOP-e, but conservatives leaders as well like Palin and West) are vindicated.
I hope Aiken wins. Screw the GOP. Its time for a new party hopefully while Romney is in office. The GOP is just a liberal away from the DNC.
See this compilation of Eastwood's GOP speech and the Superbowl ad...
A gritty gut wrenching indictment of Obambi policies in 2 mins and 39 seconds and why it's not a game
does that really need a sarc tag?
Unbelievable. The GOP is run by freakin morons.
I thought Akin came back ahead in the polls. I can’t believe people would vote for McCaskill because Akin said one stupid thing.
Well, it is except for St. Louis, Kansas City, the surrounding suburbs, and throw in Columbia for good measure. All of that means that Missouri is about evenly divided, but has trended more conservative in recent years. The winner of this race must have independents and a majority of the woman's vote. Akin can't do this, especially when McCaskill starts saturating the StL and KC media markets with adds reminding voters of the dangers of Akin's to women's "reproductive rights". That message will fall on deaf ears among conservatives, and they will largely vote for Akin. But, the critical votes that he needs for a victory will not pull the lever for him.
Conservatives seem to always make the mistake of thinking that conservative voters are sufficient to elect any pure conservative candidate. This is only true in the most red of states. Missouri is not in that category.
Well then little prince, why don't you just go and play with yourself???
The stupid thing is, if the RNC would just shut up about Akin, most folks would probably forget about him, at least, nationally. I don’t know how he’s doing in MO.
What’s a “reproductive right”? You mean the right to have children? Thankfully, we have that right in the U.S.; unlike China where they can only have one child. Is Akin going to take away a woman’s right to have children?
“No, ALL educated people were disgusted with his comments, ....”
You mean like Al Gore or the National Education Association?
So how grievous is this gaffe versus someone who supports Obamacare and doesn't want it repealed? Obamacare funds abortion regardless of the how the child was impregnated. And we have the Death Panel (IPAB) that will allow 15 unelected bureaucrats to decide what treatment protocols will be allowed and how much will reimbursed to doctors and hospitals.
McCaskill is also pro-choice meaning that she has no problem killing human life up to the ninth month of pregnancy. So who really is the ignorant hillbilly?
No, ALL educated people were disgusted with his comments, and he can apologize , but he meant what he said
...ahhhh, only MORONS are even offended by his remarks. Grow up and figure out how many gallons of leftist Koolaid you are gulping down buying into the lamestream meme. Akin didn’t even say anything offensive in recaping what he had been told/read, and the obviously orchestrated attack was a set up which is an attack on any and all conservatives. Some people never learn that the leftists lie and make stuff up everyday...try not to fall for it next time.
“Reproductive Rights” are code words for abortion and birth control. Democrats use this language to convince women to vote against pro life conservative comments. In Akin’s case, they will scare women into believing that Akin and the Republicans will criminalize use of any birth control. It’s an argument that has worked for years.
oh yeah leftist koolaid, thats it.
i suppose you agree with what he said about women’s bodies preventing conception from rape.
as to morons, I am a physician of 25 years. Only morons were unoffended by his remarks.
Didn’t he tell Mark Levin that they were going to finance his candidacy? If so, what a liar!
