Stupidest thing I've heard all day :
In other words, as long as nations like the U.S., Israel, and Russia have nukes but rogue nations like Iran and North Korea don't[,] Iran and North Korea will continually pursue them with a willingness to use them. Yet if we get rid of ours, they will stop the pursuit of theirs... and everybody can hug and get along, naturally.
From the article : Report: State Dept. Considers Eliminating US Nuclear Arsenal post #53.

Should they do that before or after he votes against it in the Senate???

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.


Thank You. Well Said.

I can’t believe the number of people on here attacking a guy who is actually standing up against the GOPe. I know most of you are letting the GOPe lead you around like a puppy and now you actually support the RINO Romney but why fight against one of the most conservative senators we will have in November? Akin will WIN in November and don’t worry, your pretty boy Romney will still take Missouri.

This is ridiculous. Before Hannity said anything, before Coulter said anything, before any of the GOPe said anything, the hue and cry from many Republicans was “please drop out, Akin.”

And as “red” as Missouri is, it’s only 40% Republican. Last time I checked, 40% doesn’t win many elections. This isn’t Republicans’ fail. It’s Akin’s.

The only way we can take back the senate is for Romney, Rove, the GOPe, all RINOs, all Republicans and all grassroots tea party conservatives to get behind ALL of our candidates and support them to the hilt. Time to stop the bitching and start the pitching. If Romney/Rove torpedo Akin like they did our prior tea party candidates, then they’ll be showing their true RINO colors.

Go Akin!!

>Then he better change his tone quick and go on the offense.

>> About what. From what I hear he's been on the offensive taking on obama's policies and those that endorse them. What more would you have him do?

> It was a major foul up statement but it is the past.

>> It was a 'major foul up? Are you kidding me? It is only a major deal because you're making it so. It doesn't come close to being the "foul up" of not vetting obama. So many rinos are running around bashing Akin for one little misspeak and not saying squat about what obama is doing to our country. People that are being so easily distracted by the left's propaganda shouldn't be allowed to vote. My opinion.

> I am still pissed at him simply because it played right into the left’s hands and gave them the Macacca moment of the campaign.

>> You cannot be serious. You are not going to support Akin because he is pro-life? Are you also going to blame him for all the woes this country has been suffering during obama's tenure as Der Fuhrer?

Praise be to God we have one more "real" Conservative with the character to stand up for good Godly principles. We need 534 more just like him if you ask me.

The problem is Todd Aiken won in a three person race. He got a simple majority to win the nomination. Once he won he showed his true “heart” on rape - similar to the “gaff” “mispeak” of Obama’s “you didn’t built that business”.

Now he wants to walk it back and those of us that knew he wasn’t fit to serve in the first place.

Many are wanting a 3rd party candidate. Many will vote for R/R and let the Senatorial vote blank. Missouri is the Show Me State and most of us don’t like what we have seen in Mr. Akins.....and his suporters.

We have lost any chance at the Senate, and will be stuck with o-care, all thanks to Akin, one of onama’s most important supporters. “Legitimate rape” will be the number one issue from now on.

Completely untrue. Other candidates were polling well above McCaskill just 2 weeks back, and Brunner and Steelman both have campaign ready to let her rip and win.


They obviously did not poll above Akin

Of course....you probably do not want to mention Steelman’s 60% ACLU rating (Akin 0%) or Brunner being supported by the Chamber of Commerce (he is better on Amnesty than Akin).

Appears Missourians are smarter than the Liberal GOP

You are absolutely right. I will do just that.

If Akin drops out, the GOP-e will win a battle, but conservatives will lose the war (of principles). If Akin does not drop out, the GOP-e will lose the battle (who cares!) but conservatives will at least hold on to their principles! That is far better than losing the war of principles but caving to GOP-e, aka abortionist central.

I can so totally appreciate your situation.... But since there has been all this itching and whining about that mean ole GOP not playing nice and being all mean, the least his supporters can do now is fund his campaign.

It has nothing to do with him being pro-life. It is about marketing. His statement was stupid and it played into the ‘war on women’ narrative. Worse was how he handled it. He could have taken an aggressive approach after he made that err and not only apologized, but gone on the offense with the media ignoring worse statements by Dems such as Biden and Frankin but also pointing out that he is the one for saving a life versus murdering the baby due to the rape.

It was poor PR and changed the discourse of the campaign. There is no denying it. It isn’t just about being right on the issue, it is also about being able to control your mouth and win people over to your side.

Good and get everybody you know to give twice as much.... Conservatives are about personal responsibility not wagging tongues, and since the Akin supporters got their way they have a big responsibility to fund him.

Actually, he only got a plurality - 36% with a huge bounce due to McCaskill's forces running ads labeling him too conservative which gave him a big bounce near the end of the campaign. McCaskill pushed Akin over the finish line and she is now reaping the rewards of picking her opponent.

Maybe there’s some of that, but the abject rejection of what he stands for, and has voted for, is far worse.

I'm not sure how many people reject whatever it is that he "stands for" or "votes for," so I couldn't say that it is "far worse." It might be - if the rejection is ultimately Christ's gift of salvation - but I'm not sensing that to be what Todd Akin's supporters are fixated on.

He may be the right guy for his congressional district, but senate-level Matthew 10:16 he's not. I personally don't think his candidacy - which I am not saying is his "cause" - is as important as he, Mike Huckabee and a number of people who apparently automatically trust clerics of their own creed think it is.

Bachmann refuses to be connected to Akin in any way, probably a smart move on her part. She has a tough election to win and doesn’t need any “help” from Akin. I can’t blame her, can you? (rhetorical question)


She was thrown under the same Liberal PhonyCon Bus a few weeks earlier by the same “GOP-e” that threw Akin under the bus this week.

Her only saving grace was that the Liberal GOP Media are a little more afraid to be called “pro-terrorist” than “pro-abortion”...or they would have gone lock-step. goose-step with the McCain, Graham, Rubio, Boehner, etc, Liberal PhonyCons

I would like to see the GOP-e try to attack Steve King on his support for Akin....I dare you....

“They obviously did not poll above Akin”

YES THEY DID. Brunner and Steelman ran stronger than Akin against McCaskill, even before the blowup that has ruined Akins’ chances. Both had double the lead that Akin had in the Aug 1 Ras poll.

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/archive/election_2012_archive/missouri/missouri_mccaskill_still_trails_but_closes_gap

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Missouri Voters shows State Treasurer Sarah Steelman and retired businessman John Brunner each leading the incumbent 49% to 43%. If the race is between McCaskill and GOP Congressman Todd Akin, it’s Akin 47%, McCaskill 44%.

McCaskill ran ads to help Todd Akin beat the other two:
http://www.theatlanticwire.com/politics/2012/08/claire-mccaskill-and-how-attack-opponent-youre-rooting/55550/

It paid off: Now Akin trails by 10, post gaffe ...

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/elections/election_2012/election_2012_senate_elections/missouri/election_2012_missouri_senate
- McCaskill earning 48% support to Akin’s 38%.

Akin is now UNELECTABLE and the race is now “solid Democrat win”:

Good. Claire McCaskill says the Rasmussen Poll is wrong. She says there is no way she can win. In fact she is almost ready to withdraw from the race because Akin is such a formidable candidate. Send him some money so you and Claire can get this guy into his rightful place into the Senate. I too want to be toll for the left. Do you give classes?

The old allusion to “stubborn as a Missouri mule!” which was once applied to Harry S Truman, holds for this paragon of perseverance and recalcitrant truculence.

So he cannot see the larger picture, and still believes himself on a mission from God. He has become the very caricature of a single-issue candidate, and we shall NEVER know any of his positions on any other issue that is of really pressing importance, both to Missouri and the US as a whole.

He cannot melt down, because he believes himself to be made of titanium.

And lo, though ten thousand angels come before him, weeping, beseeching and downcast, he cannot turn aside. Clearly, he has become the Indispensable Man, the True Savior, on a holy quest.

What the heck, he might win. If not....

OK, we’ll all remember that when one of your buds posts yet another, “Gee, exactly how long has Aiken been beating his puppy? Inquiring minds want to know!” threads .... you pro-choice GOPers all want a conservative scalp.

That’s what it is. Admit it.

Most of us will remember all of this come the first week in November. Why should we—the pro-life—support anyone who wishes us ill?

http://townhall.com/columnists/dianawest/2012/08/24/wake_up_gop_and_quit_ostracizing_todd_akin

“But as the left began to bay for blood over a Republican and, by preposterous extension, Republican Party it hopes to smear as “anti-woman,” Republicans across the board, incredibly, joined in. Rather than jouncing Democrats back into some semblance of decent behavior with a firm, partywide reality check — comparing a dumb comment about rape from one among their ranks with, say, accusations of actual rape against Democrats’ two-term hero Bill Clinton — Republicans obligingly cut off their own noses and handed them to their political opponents.”

With friends like this, we don’t need enemies.

McCaskill does not want her prize toy withdrawing before Sept 25. So she will spent part of her 12 million dollar war chest with positive ads about herself before that date without attacking him. She would not want to get too far ahead of him before that date for fear he will withdraw.Come September 25 she will unload on him with every one of her ads ending in 2 words “legitimate rape”.

Correct, and very predictable to those who've seen this kind of thing before. There's a good reason Charlie Cook has called the race ALREADY for McCaskill.

Go Akin!!

I've been on the fence concerning the Todd Akin matter. Since I'm not in Missouri, I don't have a direct stake in the issue but we all are going to be impacted by the makeup of the Senate.

Since I respect your political smarts and your unwavering Conservatism, your evaluation makes me join the "Go Akin!" side too. When I saw Todd Akin's solid pro-life voting record as well as his choice to not back "No Child Left Behind", I knew he was a good man. Your decision serves to confirm that. Thanks so much, Jim. By the way, I'm glad to see that phxTM06 got a well-deserved zot a day or so ago. He was really needlessly piling on against Akin.

Do you REALLY want an IMBECILE like Akin in the senate? If he won’t listen to party leaders now, what assurance do we have that he’ll listen to the GOP leaders on the floor of the senate?

Get a clue. It doesnt matter what the GOP says or thinks. Either way, Akin is toast. Its not whether you or I can overlook his comment, its what the other voters do, and what McCaskill campaign will do with it to defeat Akin. his gaffe makes him unelectable and he has a yawning gender gap.

The ONLY way to salvage this situation is for Akin to step aside - selfishly he didnt.

MEANWHILE, OBAMA WILL USE AKIN AS A FOIL IN HIS CAMPAIGN:
“The interesting thing here is that this is an individual who sits on the House Committee on Science and Technology but somehow missed science class,” the President said. “But it’s representative of a desire to go backwards instead of forwards. And fights that we thought were settled 20, 30 years ago.”
