Posted on 08/24/2012 2:53:44 PM PDT by JustSayNoToNannies
Embattled Senate candidate Todd Akin just told reporters in Chesterfield that he is staying in the Senate race against Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill.
Akin repeated the kinds of statements he'd made previously to national media, asserting that he's never had the support of the Republican party establishment anyway. [...]

Oh my Akin head ...
I smell a landslide victory for Romney and that always allows state nominees to win on the Presidential coat tails. Missouri is a red state and my prediction is that Akin will beat McCakel when Romney wins big here because of his coat tails. I, for one, have and still will vote straight Republican ticket. I expect from the anti-Obama swell here as well as general distrust of all dems, there will be a lot of others doing the same thing.
Why the hell even have a press con... I can’t say what I hope happens to that fool Akin... may he rot in political hell...
When monkeys fly out of my a##.....
Go Akin! I’m donating tonight!
Tell me more about how a guy from Cape Girardeau, who still has family in the state, whose family has been involved in Missouri politics for decades, knows nothing about Missouri politics.
Go Akin! I’m donating tonight!
Were on a roll with Romney/Ryan ...about to take the presidency, the senate, the house and the supremes. These stakes don’t get higher and we got a good shot at running the table.
We can win the senate without Akin but the repubs cannot allow another like him.
Make a friggin example out of him so any repub who even THINKS of breaking goofy and fng this up knows whats in store. Cut every dime and delete him from everyones phones. He’s out like Fredo. If he does happen to win no office, no chairmanships. He can sit in a bathroom stall all day.
Virgil Goode supporters: Do you see what’s happening? You are being played by the DNC! Just as the Democrats spent $2 million to support Aiken, they’re spending money to bolster Goode.
Can’t you see this is playing out in battleground states in MO and VA to divide and conqure?
Are you too stupid to see this? We have now lost MO. Are you content to play the DNC’s stooge?
Nope. Romneycare already owns that.
Speaking of which, ABO's should be ABMs in this case. Anyone but McCaskill. After all, the blemishes (gay boy scouts, gun control, etc.) don't matter with Romney, then a verbal gaffe should be far easier to overcome with Akin.
Romney is the ABO.
Akin is the ABM.
(Aiken = Akin)
Akin make Newt look like St. Francis of Assisi.
Spite, selfishness, ego, legitimate rape...
Amazing the number mind-readers we have in the Rightwing. I thought that was the province of the Left.
The guy is a self-centered moron.
GO SEE 2016. LEARN what Obama has planned for America.
NO ONE person and NO ONE career should be allowed to stand in the way of defeating him.
This jerk’s ABSOLUTELY idiotic comments can not be apologized away or condoned - EVER.
I just lost what little respect I had for that OTHER idiot, Huckabee when he came out in defense of this total jerk.
This is NOT a Missouri issue anymore. Akin’s stupid comments made it a NATIONAL issue.
I am leaving in 10 minutes to go see 2016 :-)
The GOP didn't throw anyone under the bus. The fool jumped in front of a train and expects everyone else to follow his lead.
If Akin were to drop out, the GOP will lose that race anyway. No way they can get a candidate in there that can clean up the mess and win in two months.
Akin has to fight. He made a stupid statement, clearified his remarks and apologized. Nothing more to do other than go on the attack of McCaskill’s voting record, tax cheat issues and her airplane. You know, the things that really matter to people?
We are losing the battle to liberals and have been for a very long time. If Akin drops out, we lose this one by concession. If Akin in stays in and loses, then we go down fighting. If Akin win, we get a victory.
Also I am officially done with weak kneed RINO’s, cry babies and drama queens on talk radio (Rush, Levin, Hannity, Beck, Ingrahm, etc.). These a-holes have done the work against Akin for the DNC. They are traitors as far as I am concerned.
No, I think the seething hatred for Akin has become the real issue.
Quite honestly, the intemperate response to this man is extremely embarrassing, and one of the many reasons I will remain a Conservative Libertarian.
