Michelle said “for the first time in my life, I am proud of my country”

If Akin wins, for the first time in my life, I will be embarassed to be a republican.

In reading Specter’s obit, I was “embarrassed to be a Republican.” Turn-coat to the end, he finally made it official late in life by becoming a Dem.

Akin is embarrasing, but what is the alternative? Commie McCaskill?

I’d rather be embarrassed to be a Republican considering how much of a raving liberal McCaskill is.

There is no point in calling McCaskill a commie. She is a democrat which is very close to the same thing. McCaskill is a crook and a commie.

And yes I'd rather have the commie crook for this reason. The commie crook is in my neighbors house while if Akin wins the a-hole would be in my house.

This jives well with the Gravis poll taken there Sep 16/17 (PRE-Debate).

The other polls at RCP are either biased or too small a sample.

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2012/senate/mo/missouri_senate_akin_vs_mccaskill-2079.html

If Romney stays on track, and Akin behaves himself, this is looking very good. This one is very critical to us regaining the Senate.

Every senator counts. One Senate seat might make the difference between bad legislation passing or not, or some commie being appointed to the Supreme Court. One unfortunate remark should not be a big issue.

Lefties and criminals like Nelson Rockefeller, Lowell Weicker, George Ryan, John Warner, Dede Scozzafava, Chuck Percy, Christine Todd Whitman, John Rowland, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mitt Romney don't embarrass you but conservative Todd Akin does? For a mis-statement that he took back and apologized for?

You might be more at home with the organizations supported by Christine Todd Whitman's IMP-PAC, which was allied with "is allied with the Republican Main Street Partnership, The Wish List, the Republican Majority for Choice, Republicans for Choice, Republicans for Environmental Protection and the Log Cabin Republicans." and is now merged with the Republican Leadership Council PAC. They are embarrassed by conservatives, too.

I would rather have a candidate who may occasionally put his foot in his mouth than a candidate who continually puts her hand in my pocketbook. Any day.

I’m proud to be a conservative. You can have the Republican party.

Not a fan of Akin as a politicians, in that he has serious foot-in-mouth disease, but he is principled.

That’s huge.

Be funny if he wins, just to stick it to the GOPe — Cornyn, in particular.

I keep coming back to the MO referendum, when 70%+ voted against Obamacare..Seems to me that all Akin has to do is keep hanging her vote for Obamacare around her neck.and Claire's toast.

Anyone have polls on the MO governor's race?

The commie crook is a package deal. No additional charge, it comes with a much more likely Reed (sick) leading the Senate agenda, rather than a chance to have a conservative (or failing that, mcconnell) as Majority leader.

McCackle must go!

I will be so proud if Akin wins! he bucked the establishment more than once and he is the very type of candidate I have fought to win elections.
Akin voted against the Wall Street Bailouts; against Cash for Clunkers; Against Leave No Child Behind; against the Stimulus; for a Balanced Budget Amendment; A rating with the National Rifle Association; 100% with the American Conservative Union. GOOOOOOOOOOO AKIN!

Akin said something mind numbingly STUPID.

He took it back.

It’s the subject matter that makes a lot of people cringe. I cringe at it.

However, Claire is an Obamacare toadie and a lot worse. The people of America do not deserve obamacare and cap and trade and taxes out the wazoo and a crippled economy and loss of our freedoms, just so you can feel better that Repubs (your house?) didn’t elect Akin while Claire can be hung around the Dems neck.

You must not have gotten the memo. Our country is at stake. We MUST>>>>>MUST>>>>>MUST!!!! have the Senate. There is no alternative if our country is to live.

Nobody attacked Akin’s stupid remarks more than I did. Nobody.

But I said even back then, as disgusted and angry as I was, that if I were in MO I would still support him against Claire.

For my country.

I've said it before- Todd Akin is like that soldier who groggily stumbles out of his foxhole at 2 A.M. to take a leak, wanders in the direction of the enemy, and stumbles over a tripwire. You know the guy screwed up, but you still lay covering fire for him and help him any way you can...who knows? He might just take the enemy machine gun nest.

Well, McCain took MO in 2008 by a fraction of one percent. I would say it is highly unlikely that DemocRats are stronger in 2012 than in 2008.

Why? Akin said something dumb. Every politician does that once in a while, and some like Biden do it regularly.
McCaskill personally benefited from stimulus spending and voted for Obamacare.

I distrust the poll, since it’s not non partisan,
but Akin has a good chance to win. I think Romney will take Mo by abut 10 points and he’ll have coattails.

I bet McCaskill was near orgasmic when they ran in and told her what he said (”OMG YOU WONT BELIVE WHAT AKIN JUST SAID!!!!”)

And now... not so much

Even that won’t outweigh her voting for Obamacare

"If Akin wins, for the first time in my life, I will be embarassed to be a republican."

I take it that the lawfull permission to murder your own baby, if you so choose to do so, is a huge issue for you? 

I'm embarassed of human beings who choose to murder their own innocent babies.  Nothing can be lower on the human scale than that.

May those who have done so repent before it is too late.
