I live in Missouri and this ‘pro-life’ division have basically claimed they are doing the Lord's work...

I am tired of reading their constant itching, witching, and ragging comments about the mean ole GOP.... That is NOT news.

So they got their Akin, I expect them to put up or shut up in doing the Lord's work... God never sent out incompetent speakers to do His work.... He sent Aaron when Moses complained about his speaking abilities.

I expect to see these Akin supporters out doing the Lord's work, planting signs along I-70, I-44, I-35, and every other state and county roads... I expect them to fill up Akin’s campaign coffers.

We shall see how devoted they are to their cause.... I going to in the future refer to it as ‘resurrection of Akin’.

Hey timberlink, what's the Bible say about commenting lies about somebody like you've been caught doing in this thread, huh?

Don't be running around calling people “baby killers” unless you know for a fact that they are. You only lose credibility. I for one will no longer be taking what you say at face value.

Talk about DUmmy tactics! The hypocrisy!

This is a disaster, and Akin’s supporters are going to ruin everything.

I hate socons.

They can’t see past their precious single issues.

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.”

The only catastrophe here is that you have painted yourself into a corner on this issue. That's hardly worth anybody dying over.

Just give yourself some time and in a few weeks at most you'll review the choices again and you'll do the right thing. There is only one sensible course at this point.

Trust God and knock off the death wishes. You'll be ok.

People have eyes, ears, and brains bub.

We’re not like the mouth-brewathing Protestant evangelicals who need “The Reverend” to tell them what to do or think from the pulpit.

I hate Akin because I hate stupid idiots who can’t answer simple questions.

I hate him because he’s not a team player.

I want him gone, and I don’t care how anymore.

It amazes me to witness the vitriol expressed on the FR against this guy from so-called conservatives/Republicans. I am beginning to wonder if that is what all of these posters are.

If one guy can bring down a whole political party (Republican) by one statement, then the political party deserves to never win another election and should be condemned to the ash heap of history.

With so-called friends such as the posters profess to be, one does not need any enemies.
