Romney thinks Boy Scout leaders should be gay and Akin thinks there are different types of rape and that receptive female partners are more likely to get pregnant than rape victims.
I vote for Romney getting the boot, and Akins moving up to his slot on the national ticket.
I wish Akins had stepped aside. I am not going to waste time defending a strong pro-life candidate who isn't smart enough to learn how to answer loaded questions. We may not like it, but we live in a country where most people only get their information from sound bites. He will lose in MO and we may not take the Senate because of it.
Romney is not the candidate any of us wanted, but I don't think that is why abortion laws will be left as they are. Look to John Roberts at the SCOTUS he is untouchable and he has made obamacare the law of the land. I do believe Romney will sign a repeal of obamacare and am confident that the House will send the Senate a repeal, but if the Senate is in Rat hands it will die there.
Looking at this reality I wonder how pro-life Aikens really is. He talks a great game, but when it came to sacrificing his career for this cause he chose his career.
