CINCINNATI (AP) -- President Barack Obama, seeking to shore up support among women, intensified his pressure Thursday on Mitt Romney to break any ties with a Republican Senate candidate who said that if a woman becomes pregnant from rape it is "something God intended." Romney ignored the emotional social issue, holding to an optimistic campaign tone as he fought for victory in crucial Ohio.

All Romney has to do is tell Obama to take Donald Trump up on his offer to give $ 5 Million to his favorite charity if Obama were to have all his college records released.

Desperation. Obama usually relies on surrogates for things like that.

Romney should pressure Obama to break ties with the accused rapist and serial sexual predator Bill Clinton.

Obama, you f-ing moron. He’s talking about the baby, not the rape.

These guys like Mourdock and Akin, need to learn how to keep their damn mouth shut about this topic. What in the world compels a candidate - a man especialy - to say things that are this stupid? I want to win Congress, but not with flipping idiots!

Tell Obama to sweep in front of his own doorstep, and break his ties with his terrorist friends Ayers and Dorhn, as well as his old pal “God Damn America” Rev. Wright.

bigbob, what good is it to win elections with people who cater to those who hate honest to goodness active practicing Calvinists? This is America, not Communist China.

*best part being deleted to avoid moderator wrath, and you'd better believe it'd be wrath*

Mourdock statement should in no wise be shocking to any real Christian, or Orthodox Jew, or even a Moslem.

You’re absolutely correct.
Their opinions only help drive away moderate women voters.

Count me as sick and tired of these stiff necked dimwits.

Mourdock’s Christian God gives the gift of Human life, even to a victim of rape.

Obama’s Muslim God orders the men of the family to cut off the woman’s head, as a penalty for allowing herself to be raped.

Which is better?

Obama is in NO position to pressure anyone - we have four dead Americans because of him doing nothing. We just need to ignore this POS.

Thinking women, knowledgeable women, will not be driven away.

We understand that life is a gift from God - regardless of circumstance. It is not the childs fault, so why should the child be condemned - tortured even? So I am raped, I've tried to go there in my imagination. The igdignity, the pain, the brutality.

And I find myself pregnant.

Is this not MY child? Is this not a living being? Should I murder because I was abused?

It's truly mystifying - especially given that everyone in the world knows the mainstream media is just waiting to pounce on pro-life candidates.

These guys needs to learn how to state their basic position on this subject and shut the hell up. "I am against abortion except in cases where the life of the mother is in danger". Period. No pontificating about their inner struggle with coming to this decision. No talk about various rape scenarios. Just state rehearsed talking points and move on - avoid the minefield altogether.

Now because these guys can't seem to stop themselves from blathering on this topic, we are likely to lose both Missouri and Indiana Senate seats. Missouri is simply a lost pick-up opportunity. Indiana will be an actual loss.

2ndDivisionVet pressures Mr. Obama to drop his Muslim Brotherhood, Nation of Islam, Black Panther, Weathermen, Democratic Socialist and Maoist ties.

Considering the fact that Obama doesn’t want his daughters “punished” with a child.

Mourdock is the anti-flavor flav therefore anti-Obama..
If Obama is not the political Flavor Flav I’ve been asleep..
OK.. Flavor Flav morphed into Scoop Dog..

However; Flavor or Scoop would be better Presidents than Zero..

Defeating Mourdock will be IN’s way of telling ol’ Dick Lugar that it is sorry for voting as it did on May 8.

Lets see how much Obama’s #MyFirstTime ad plays with that women vote. I think it’s going to backfire on him big time.

St Louis is not my country.
Akin will get my vote because of his “A” rating from NRA.

I am disappointed that a more thoughtful and capable candidate did not win the Missouri primary.
