Skip to comments.Todd Akin: When Dumb Talk Is Inevitable
Posted on 08/21/2012 4:25:15 PM PDT by Clintonfatigued
There are two sides within the anti-abortion movement. On one side, stand men and women who care deeply about human life and fear that abortion devalues society by creating a caste of disposable people. On the other side, lurk crabbed adults who think women should be punished for having extramarital sex and that pregnancy is fit punishment that (luck of the draw) spares men and falls instead on women and girls.
I think we all know which corner hosts Rep. Todd Akin.

As I said before we set impossibly high standards for our side, then we conservatives wonder why we can never win.
No he hasn’t. You and people like you have.
I invited my girlfriend to visit this evening. I said, come on over baby, theres whole lotta Akin goin on!
Which ones are up for grabs???
We're talking about something far more important than politics. Frankly, the suggestion that abortion is just some backburner issue to be ignored (again) in light of such "pressing" issues as the expiration of certain tax breaks is disgusting.
If you think attacking a pro-life champion for an admittedly stupid comment is going to somehow render RINOs more endearing to either Conservatives, or the liberal media the mittarded ones so love, forget it.
When mitt opened his mouth today he lost the election.
this article is complete crap
“The conservative Missouri state GOP legislative caucus is backing Akin 100% and telling the wimpy group of flip flopping old Senators and the GOP to grow a spine and stand up to these kinds of attacks from the Democrats or shut up.”
well they do have a point, same kind of garbage happened to Hank Jr. Media had a field day, twisted what he said and kaboom. they smell blood and the press is a bunch of sicko vammpires
you sure? sheesh you are so judgmental
“this guy is getting crucified through baseless demagoguery.”
Deace is saying anyone who's an enemy of Mitch McConnell and Mitt Romney is a friend of his, meaning Todd Akin in this case. Deace's really interesting theory is that the GOP elites know Missouri is a conservative state who will elect a staunch conservative, so they are jumping at the chance to boot out Akin and replace him with a handpicked RINO. Deace is a staunch Christian conservative who is one of the biggest RINO hunters out there I've seen so far. Looks like you can listen live online...
Listen Longbow, Christianity is about light and life. we are sacrificing babies, what kind of monsters does that make us?
His attempt to arrogantly lecture the audience through a TV reporter allowed him to choose contemptuous language to try and brush off the issue of abortion in instances of rape and incest. This is a complex issue a theology essay of five thousand words can barely address and he trys to dismiss it with anecdotal pseudo-science using creepy phrasing.
Intelligent candidates — hell, even candidates with low IQs — know the importance of staying on message and talking toward what the election is about for the voters.
But Akin was not focused on the broad conservative sea-change and fiscal responsibility to dump an agenda headed by a Marxist. Instead, he was focused on single-issue agenda points of the right-to-life groups and did so in a manner that caused good conservvatives, that hate Roe v. Wade and all it stands for, to smack their foreheads, declare “epic fail” and ask themselves how they can vote for someone this dumbly arrogant.
“The single issue voters who are the problem are the ones who vote against the guy for the single issue that he said something stupid.”
“Akins is also implying women who miscarry probably stopped that thing subconsciously due to a desire to not have the child.”
Aw give it a rest, you are implying you are a self righteous know it all
Let’s cut back on the personal stuff. This topic is raw enough as it is.
There are a lot of Missourians, Democrats included, that are pissed off enough at the national GOP for what they are doing to Akin that they will cross over and vote him in the general just to stick it to the GOP elitists knowing that Akin will stand up to them in Washington like he did here.
Better that than growing up in the dog-eating, prayer-calling lands of Muhammed that Obama did.
