Todd Akin has become a weapon against the pro-life movement and the entire Republican Party. He could damage the entire pro-life cause this election cycle. And it’s his own fault, as Ann Coulter, Debra Saunders, Laura Ingraham, and many others have pointed out.
Missouri conservatives, we need you now. Get this guy to drop out before he buries us all!
Akin sounds like a guy who has spent alot of time living in an Evangelical Christian bubble and has never really seriously thought through his policy positions or dived deeper than a bumper sticker on any intellectual topic—not a healthy way to come across if you claim to be an engineer with a divinity degree. He told Hannity that he got his ideas about the female reproductive system from a “couple articles” he read years ago (amazing considering abortion is his big issue) and he was stunned to hear that the PPP poll he was relying on grossly over-sample Republicans. Somebody that ignorant who gets placed on the national stage is a walking gaffe bomb.
Sorry when the first paragraph is so biased I can’t bring myself to read the rest of the article.
This article is right on the money. Akin has damaged all prolifers. He’s a zealot and a moron.
So this election (which I think is already lost thanks to Akin) comes down to supporting a party led by an avowed communist...
...or a party running a candidate in a must have state that thinks a 13 year old who is raped by a career criminal should be mandated by the state to have that career criminal’s baby.
This is what I hate about the gutless GOP...Dems commit actual crimes and are lauded. Bill Clinton actually raped women and is the keynote speaker at their convention. Akin used an awkward phrase- his point was true that the baby conceived in a rape is innocent and not deserving of being killed - and the long knives of his OWN party are out in minutes. Pansy-a$$es, all of them. Play hard or go home! Afraid of a down and dirty battle and unable to keep the conversation about the ECONOMY! As soon as there is a viable party that can win elections I’m outa there.
Debra here is a pervert ~ she needs to seek some help to clear away her dark vision of her fellow human beings.
Has Juanita Broaddrick weighed in on this?
I invited my girlfriend to visit this evening. I said, come on over baby, theres whole lotta Akin goin on!
this article is complete crap
TODD AKIN AMERICA DIED TODAY! thank you for being a Obama fan and Mccaskill fan. Rot in Hell Todd Akin!
Akin has no idea what a mess he’s created.He’s walked right into the womens issue by expounding on a stupid conception concept. Since he’s decided not to bow out MSM via NPR are moving ahead with bashing distortions of Republican postions over the airwaves repleat with talk of gradations of rape,and victim participation not the issue of abortion, let alone the economy.
Now talk hosts among them my favorite Levin are busy urging those from the big MO to vote for this fool because there seems to be no other choice. Forearmed with the knowledge that Mc-Claire ran ads supporting The Bozo during his primary I don’t know how Mark could ask anyone to do that with a streight face. The sad fact is this sits well with certain members of the GOP-E who believe in the piecemeal approach in fixing Zerocare.
1...Pray that St Michael comes down and advises Akin to withdraw, cover those expences.
Did you catch Palin on Greta advocating a Steelman third party run if Akin doesn’t withdraw by 8/25?
Palin was on fire - the most animated and convincing I’ve ever seen her.
Do you know the MO law regarding a third party run?
