You apparently missed the threads on here that called for Akin’s head within the first 24 hours.

At one point, the movement that says it is for individual responsibility needs to take responsibility for its own actions (or inactions).

Then maybe we’ll win elections again. We suck at it because we are too busy blaming everyone else.

Well, there is a way to win elections in spite of fraud, and that is to win them so soundly that fraud is in vain.

Akin raised a dilemma. He clearly erred. Now what should the response be in such a case. I fear it became a circular firing squad in this case.

I did. People were willing to toss Akin under the bus in the hopes to salvage the campaign.

That didn’t work very well. Only two of the Senators we had up won, and we’ve got one hanging on in Nevada. We actually lost seats in a democrat heavy senate class.

We need to stick by conservatives who have principles like Akin. When the GOP cut Akin off, they handed Obama the election in spades.

Don’t you think they planned this? They wanted us to hurt ourselves, and the best way to do this is to get the moderates to backstab the conservatives.
