He did, but I’m not confident that Mark Levin will have the attention span to follow through and be able to call Priebus on it tomorrow. Levin gets cranky about different matters all the time, and when it is all said and done, he defers to his good buddies in the power broker conservative media, National Review. Levin gets his dander up, but he never names names and takes any action to try and forcefully persuade his misguided buddies on the right to get their act together.

Notice how Levin will rip apart Peggy Noonan, Karl Rove, and Bill Kristol, but he always tip toes around the idiotic writings of his buddies Rich Lowry and Ramesh Ponnuru at National Review.

I wonder if this "Reince Priebus" is the same POS who did this?

The office of Congressman Akin has received threats of rape of his official staff, family and the Congressman himself along with suggestions that individuals should die.”

"as the GOP becomes more and more morally corrupt under the horrendous leadership of Boehner and professional fundraisers and consultants."

more corrupt than rats?......not even close....

as long as there is a solid rat party, the need for a equally strong pub party is essential, like it or not...

changing the pubs is work though....but its doable from the local level on up...

changing the rat party is insurmountable...

If he wins, he will obviously get his revenge. He may even caucus with the Democrats if he’s the swing.

Through 2011, Akin's 11-year ACU rating was 97. I would suggest he's not likely to caucus with the Dims.

Way back when priebus was being selected by the RNC I pointed out he'd be terrible for Conservatives since none of those Wisconsin guys were really OUR KIND of Conservative. Even noted he was an avowed Mittbot who'd manipulate everything to get his boy in, and would screw around with anybody who challenged Mitt.

Priebus has only gotten worse.

an effort must be lead to deep six Priebus, Boehner and House Leadership, and Mitch McConnell. Romney might do better in the polls if he included supporting deep sixing Boehner as a campaign promise.

I agree wholeheartedly! They are such a drag on the conservative cause. I think people would start to rally with the thoughts of these weaklinks being ousted. What a waste of time and energy to listen to them. They are doing more harm to the party than Congressman Akin.

It is hard to get out the checkbook and put on the bumper stickers with these "yawn" birds. One only needs to think of the future of America. . . .why don't we hear more impassioned speeches about that?

MissMagnolia @5: "If we lose the Senate because of this, there WILL be consequences. You’re talking about possibly deep sixing the repeal of Obamacare, etc."

The whole thing is moot if Romney loses. But an Akin loss, even if the GOP wins the Senate, will be a convenient scapegoat for not overturning a (by then) already activated Obamacare, which, even with both houses and the Oval Office under GOP control, would be more complicated to accomplish than simple "campaign promises" make it out to be.

There's linkage here ~ both Akin AND Romney should drop out for having played too much footsie with too many Democrats.

Priebus, of course, should just walk away and hope he's never identified.

As far as Akin speaking with less than precise knowledge of the workings of the uterus, you can hear worse from almost any Democrat every day.

Most recently you heard the entire party line up behind some ol'gal at Georgetown University who said she needed $3,000 a year for condoms!

That, BTW, really hasn't got a lot to do with the uterus ~ not with that degree of traffic ~ no magic to it ~ overuse of the connecting parts will tend to disable a lot of stuff.

Here is Romney announcing his newest position on abortion

CBS News Interview: August 27, 2012
PELLEY: Well, the platform as written at this convention for the Republicans does not allow for exceptions on abortion with regard to the health of the mother or rape or incest. Is that where you are?

ROMNEY: No. My position has been clear throughout this campaign. I’m in favor of abortion being legal in the case of rape and incest, and the health and life of the mother.

“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.”

Or, to give Priebus’s real meaning: “we’re O.K. with someone who has pushed a state version of ObummerCare (Romney), and with a senator that allowed the vote on ObummerCare to go forward when she could have killed it(Collins), or with someone who ran against a Republican candidate (Murkowski), but we can’t tolerate a conservative who misspeaks, even if he later apologizes for it. We’d rather not take control of the Senate than back a conservative like Akin who will not play ball.”

Priebus, You Mthrfking, shallow minded, little zib.

You, Steele, Rove, and a host of others are why I refuse to give money or support to RNC or any other national org.

You idiots gave us Bob Dole, when more suitable choices were available and we would have won.

After that you Jack Wagons gave us George Bush. I thought he was place marker and wouldn’t do much. Fine but, unsatisfacory.

911 brought out the real man and I admire him for a good many things he did during his terms but, he sure couldn’t find the will to bring out the veto pen when your hand picked congress rats decided to go on a spending spree.

I had an idiotic idea at the time that maybe it was calculated that there would be this point where even the Dems couldn’t spend more.

Nope. It get worse as the GOP claims to finally want to go back to their roots of fiscal restraint and excellent international affairs management.

I don’t believe you.

So who do you brain trustees from bizarro world decide to give us who in 2008? John McCain.

That was a great idea wasn’t it? Yeah, cuz it suppressed the Republican vote. That is until Sarah came along and gave us hope that maybe Matt Damon was right about the actuarial tables and she ascend to the Presidency when it suddenly became vacant.

Then you did everything you could to destroy our choices in DE, NV. You FKRS did a great job there.

You pulled your Horse Crap again in 2010 but we overwhelmingly prevailed...we hope.

And so now we have a chance to regain our majority in both houses and you just have to undermine it?

Akin should be supported but you just have to step in again and undermine a decent candidate.

Your idiotic logic that maybe a more suitable candidate, for you, will emerge between now and Nov 6 is so much trope.

Your reasoning couldn’t any more obtuse, you slack jawed slug.

I’m thinking you must be getting to much sun on that dome of yours. You should start wearing a hat.

Yeah, a hat... A nice and pointy one at that with colorful ties that attach under your chin.

You Ass Clown.

Oh, and Thanks for Mitt.

Fags...

The real test of any of these RNC Chaircritters is whether or not the party wins in a major election that takes place during their time in office.

Mike Steele was RNC chair when the Republicans won the greatest electoral victory they'd had in 70 years.

As I recall you and others demanded Mike not be re-elected ~ that even though he was a WINNER you preferred somebody else ~ a Conservative like Priebus.

Well, you got rid of the winner and you picked up a LOSER ~ Having Priebus on the job is like having one of Obama's butt buddies on the job.

However, just in case you forgot, try this little ditty you wrote in April 2010:

"To: Sub-Driver

Motivated by race? Get real!

We had great hopes for your leadership and many considered that you would right the listing ship that the RNC had become.

As it is, that ship is foundering under your leadership. Is raced a quality of failure? Are we not a very post racial country?

Do you intend to further alienating Republicans who spent years support the RNC and Republican candidates for years, some of us more than 25 years.

Membership and contributions have declined further under your leadership and not from a few who had decided you could possible be the greatest choice of leading, among all other possible candidate, at the time of your ascension to your current post.

Mr. Steele, you are a weak-ass idiot, rudderless and at times appear to be using your post in a rather self serving manner.

Mr. Steele you are the only who arose this morning and while shaving his face, considered the color of your skin.

The rest us never think about the color of your skin.

You however are man of weak character, possessed by an attitude of “putting my time in” and that is just untenable.

You lack vision, passion and critical thinking required for a leadership position.

Your race aside, you should consider being more introspective and stop “white washing” your personal failure.

I am still not supporting the RNC and it because of issue such New York 23, were you thought you knew better than the voters who should be supported by RNC apparatus.

Please resign.

That was from your post athttp://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2486887/posts?page=70

That was April BEFORE the most magnificent electoral comeback in history and the greatest Republican electoral vote in 70 years.

I didn't trust your wisdom thenand I trusst it even less now, but you are right ~ get rid of Priebus. He's already demonstrated himself to be an enemy to Republican and conservative interests, which, all things considered, Mike wasn't!

Ah, well, we moronic folks who have that scary idea that a child conceived in rape should not get a death sentence...

The GOP-e could've easily sent out their missives and spinners to help Akin with his apology, explaining his position clearly, and pointing to his record which indicates he's a reliable vote against ObaminationCare.

Even though Akin may have less than a silver tongue (say, compared to "Mr. 57-States" or "Mr. My Muslim Religion", not to mention gaffe-a-minute VP Guy), his record shows backbone and character. Wait, backbone and character - no wonder the GOP-E (Mittens, Coulter, et al.) can't stand the guy.

I wasn't offended nor disgusted and both the dentist and the hygienist were impressed by my teeth and gums at my checkup last month.

What Akin said was once what was taught and promoted. I would rather he not have said it, but that's hardly as bad or as threatening as any random demonrat's view of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and they are the ones who rammed obamacare down our throats.

His pro-life, conservative voting record says more to me than that soundbite ever will, but don't let that chunk of reality stop you and the GOPe from doing your and their best to get rid of him in favor of getting Clair McCaskill re-elected.

So...you're going to vote for obama again, too, right?
