“MO is a very conservative state.”
that has a dem gov and senator. it is a swing state
F’ the GOP-e.
and then loons on freeper came out to defend his original comments, which was what he truly meant.
somebody give me a reason to support him....
if he caucases with the rats IF he's elected, what good is he?
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.
Posted from California...hmmm.
Why don’t you leave the heavy lifting for those of us in Missouri, and stop making defeatist comments?
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.
Any time the GOP-e is against someone, I’m for them.
Think I’ll proudly stand with the toothless hillbillies over some moron who thinks they can “restore” the Hetch Hetchy so the rest of us can pay the price of the resulting idiocy.
It’s an argument that has worked for years, eh? How many years exactly? Did it work anytime before the 1990’s?
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...
Under what circumstances? Detail please.
Through 2011, Akin's 11-year ACU rating was 97. I would suggest he's not likely to caucus with the Dims.
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.
I am educated, have all my teeth, and support Akin.
Priebus has only gotten worse.
does he have a chance?....is the race close?.....being dished by the pub establishment sometimes is a career enhancer...
Do you agree with Akins original statement? Do you think he should have apologized?
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?
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.
Reince Priebus (looks like a jerk to me.
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.
Any time the GOP-e is against someone, Im for them.
I hear you. I’m going to send Akin a check this evening.
I hope he wins and toes the Conservative line instead.
Actually I’m more interested in you, your obvious hatred of conservatives, and your greentard fantasies.
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. Im in favor of abortion being legal in the case of rape and incest, and the health and life of the mother.
I am curious. If Akin were to step down who would take his place?
Would they have any better chance to win than he does?
“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.
Very well thought out logical response.
so if i state that Akin and his moronic believers in the magic uteri are idiots, I obviously hate conservatives. Did you get past fifth grader?.
Are you aware that he was not endorsed in the primary by the life organizations?
Not when his campaign manager, who is also his wife makes statements like that they are being raped by the GOP.
Akin will win. You’re not in that state and don’t know the people there and you have no clue how the average person thinks. This was not a racial slur or anything so outrageous as to keep people from voting for him. AND on top of that Americans hate the establishment by nature and like the underdog narrative. Watch him win and you cry.
Claire supports Akin. She even ran ads supporting him in the primary.
You’re the liberal coward who went off on the typically tolerant liberal rant about toothless hillbillies. I just noted the fact that you have the liberal fantasy about “restoring” the hetch hetchy. LOL
I’ve read some good things about him, going into his election.
Hopefully, his (very stupid) remarks will not leave him behind.
i suppose you agree with what he said about womens bodies preventing conception from rape.
...try to stop looking foolish and read exactly what he said, and then try and ratchet down the Dr. arrogant knowitall disdain for a conservative who could have said it better... why not support the conservative pro lifer, or are you a pro Abortion Dr?...
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:
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.

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!
Boehner secured his position with his dirty deed at the very beginning of the RNC in Tampa.
After we get Obama out...we have to spend the next four years destroying the establishment they are as much of a danger as the current marxist in office.
I absolutely refuse to donate to the GOP because they know how not to spend my money judiciously. They have hit rock bottom and continue to dig.
I will donate to individual campaigns...
I live in Missouri. I don’t think he will win. From people here in MO that I talk to, they see his comments as “if you were raped and get pregnant, you weren’t really raped.”
Regardless of what he said, that is what people think
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 am sure he is a nice person, but I don’t think he can win. But unless we get credible third party, I will have to vote for this dunderhead.
Just went to akin.org and sent my contribution as promised. His votes on key conservative issues are critical.
Magic uterus? You're the one who sounds like a toothless hillbilly.
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?
That's the focus, Maudeen. We need all the anti-GOP-e and RINO's we can get.
I will donate to individual campaigns...
Yes, that’s what I’ve been doing since the 2004 timeframe. Have had it w/ GOP-e. Which sad to say in WA state...got a whole lot of those boys running the show. Once in awhile we get a good one to run....but it’s been tough here in bluesville. Tough.
So I only donate to indvidual candidates...here and nationally. My only hope is that the ‘red’ states overwhelm the ‘blue’. 2008 was awful. 2010 gave me joy. Got my fingers crossed for 2012.
I’M EDUCATED AND I’M SENDING AKIN A DONATION.
I’M SENDING THE “VOTE FOR MITT” DONATION ENVELOP BACK TELLING THEM THAT, I READ PRIEBUS’S STATMENT AND AM GIVING TO AKIN NOT MITT.
