About all I have to say is DAMN!!! Is the RNC going to have to vet everything any candidate is going to say?? Just as we may be getting a little traction, somebody has to make a jackass statement like that. There's one senate seat we are sure to lose now!!!

Could we refer to that as "pulling a Biden"? I think that the RNC should say "well, someone once said that there is a jackass in every crowd, and now we know who ours is"!

Really makes me want to just go out in the monte and scream!

what base ? he survived the run off by getting a measley 36%, this is the Sharron Angle saga all over again, a marginal candidate that catered to a fringe of the Party...you have everyone from Sarah P. to Mitt to the talking heads asking for him to drop out, so which base is he motivating...not buying it ....He will be a pariah within the pariah, NO ONE wants to be associated with him, and EVERYONE is trying like heck to attach him to the R&R ticket

Motivating the base and making everyone else think you are 1. dumb as a stick or 2. completely culturally tone deaf, is no way to win an election. This motivating the base stuff may be great for the primaries, but in the general election, you better be able to build a consensus and I personally love what Newt said about that in one of his lectures. He named several so called Republican positions that are actually about 75-85% positions across the electorate and suggested that our candidates should "stand by those issues and smile".

In this general election, no republican should say anything about abortion. No smart conservative should ask the candidates their positions at this point, and the folks running certainly should not volunteer information. Talk about the economy, talk about job creation, talk about fuel prices, and so on. Stay away from abortion, immigration, etc. Stay on topic. Pols seem to indicate that the economy is the most important issue so grab it, hang on, and stay on topic, stay on topic, stay on topic!!!

Todd Akin is on topic. Have any of you read the party platform that will be presented next week? The Dems have this one by the tail and ain't letting go. Mitt may have to do something bold to pull this one out cause the Dems won't let the issue go away. Not with attacks on Planned Parenthood and the preceived attacks on birth control. Repubs have painted themselves clearly in the corner!

I watched an interview of him this morning. When asked if what he said was a mistake then what was he really trying to say. Akin didn't answer the question.

He is saying that he used one wrong word, legimate. Sadly he is on a Science committee and unfortunately I think there are many people out there that belive what he said was true.

what he said is no different than what the crazy liberal whoopi goldberg said a few years ago about the difference between "rape" and "rape rape". He is under scrutiny more because he is a politician, but he says that at the end of the day he is mainly concerned with the life of the child. I think he is a bit crazy but i am in the same theological camp as he is that believes God is completely sovereign and never says woops. There is not a happy answer to this one way or the other. Akin, while defending the rights of the child, was insensitive to the situation and the victim that brought the child into being.

First, I think what he said was completely stupid and think he should step down just because anyone that would say something so dumb while running for office probably isn't smart enough to be making decisions required of a Senator. (although if being smart were required I'm not sure how many would be left).
I saw more of the interview this morning, he was asked how he could defend his stance on no abortion, even in cases of rape. His answer(whether you agree with his opinion or not) should have been more along the lines of, " I believe that abortion is murder, no matter how tragic the circumstances of conception, it is still a life". Instead he just got stupid. When he said, "legitimate rape", I'm certain he wasn't saying that there is illegitimate rape. He believes that the stresses of rape would prevent pregnancy, and that women could use it as an excuse to get an abortion even if they hadn't "legitimately" been raped.
I have heard that reasoning for years so it isn't something he came up with on his own.
Again, I want to clarify that I think he is stupid and should step down, just trying to make some kind of sense as to what the heck he could have been thinking.

He also apologized for his poor choice of words. Still stupid, but at least he apologized for his choice of words, and still stood by his belief on right to life.

With all this talk about Akin's choice of words, hardly a murmur about the MN Democrat who admitted to a rest stop, sexual liaison with a 17 yr old boy. D's are also asking him to step down. He is not being prosecuted because the boy was over the age of 16 (I guess in some states that "legal" age might be 18?) Forget about the same-sex thing ... I'm more concerned about the age of the "partner". This sounds like someone who is just one step away from pedophilia.

Senator Famous for Joking About Rape Campaigns for Obama, Biden
12:29 PM, Aug 23, 2012 • By DANIEL HALPERSingle Page


Earlier this week, Senator Al Franken of Minnesota joined Vice President Joe Biden for a campaign event in Minnesota.

"Biden got plenty of support from Minnesota Democrats," PostBulletin.com reports. "Sen. Al Franken praised Obama for pushing the health care law, saying it will help more seniors get help paying for prescriptions and will ensure Medicare's solvency for an additional eight years."

But before Franken was a senator he was a writer on the TV show Saturday Night Live. Then, he famously joked about raping CBS reporter Lesley Stahl.

As New York magazine reported in 1995, from a writing session that the reporter sat in on:

Franken: “And, ‘I give the pills to Lesley Stahl. Then, when Lesley’s passed out, I take her to the closet and rape her.’ Or, ‘That’s why you never see Lesley until February.’ Or, ‘When she passes out, I put her in various positions and take pictures of her.’”With the national conversation now turning to women's issues as a result of the bizarre and offensive comments by Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin over the weekend, it seems a bit odd that Vice President Biden would take the stage with Franken, considering his own lack of sensitivity to the horrors of rape.

Yes your side has screwed up....you have turned the majority of women off the republican party and when an election is going to be this close, you can not afford to lose a major voting group as women.

If one guy acts this way it is just the guy, but let me take you back to the Geoargetown student and Rush and how you defended him then. They get it and they want no part of it.

When you are crying in your soup after the election, you will be able to trace the defeat to your insensitivity of women. In fact the lack sensitivity for anyone. Mailman is a bum, union work is lazy and teachers are no good...that is the stereotyping the members of your party do....it turns people off. If I did agree with your policies, this rheteric would send me to hill running.

Over the years SNL has offered comedic skits and satire, often in bad taste. One can choose to watch it or not. I do not.
Statements made by candidates for public office are given much closer scrutiny, and taken seriously, as they should be. I'm sure a search of the public record would reveal many, many cases of candidates and those already elected making spurious, inappropriate and down right stupid remarks, from both sides.
Who knows, one day Leno or Letterman or Beck may run for public office, (weirder things have happened, Reagan, Swartzenegger (sp) Ventura)? Even the messiah Romney now contradicts himself...
I think the righties trying to latch on to Franken's past, as well as Clinton's, as hypocrisy is grasping at straws.

So Akin should lose? Maybe he should. But that has nothing to do with Romney/Obama.

And even if there are Rs who are "not sensitive to others", it does not appear that Romney is in agreement with Akin, so what's the point in ascribing the views of Akin to Romney?

Hell the tea party wants you to do away with everything, and when bad things start happening, like people getting sick from tainted food because you did away with the FDA; the river you like to hunt and fish on is dead because you did away with the EPA, mail cost you a $1 per letter because you did away with the post office, so you will start complaining that those government workers are lazy bums. The real waste has been these two wars that none of you complain about.

As usual Sambo, you are full of baloney. It is a proven fact that conservatives give more to charity than libs. And recent studies show that Red states are more giving than blue states... not surprising. libs talk a good game, but like to use other peoples money. You just like to talk period.

When someone makes a statement of fact, why does it have to be politically correct ?
While we are on the subject of political correctness "sambo" I don't think your handle is all that PC

Hey, sambo, since you are all knowing on sensitivity I want to ask.
How would you rate me on sensitivity and compassion for my fellow man.
Clearly I am a right-wing "extremist," (you progressives use that word a lot lately).

Just askin'...........

Now the party of sensitivity (democrats) ............................

Not by a long shot. Like I said before, we have those in every political party who are insensitive and talk too much. I have not been counting the goofs made by both sides. I can sure tell you though that the democrats are not being the party of sensitivity. Watch who you vote for on both sides.

Sambo I'm actually proud that a liberal would call me insensitive. I much prefer to be honest! I have total disgust for " political correctness". It is a pile of dog doo.
People who refuse to stand on their own two feet and would rather suck off of the taxpayer need a swift kick to the curb. It's called lough love. I'd rather be that than an enabler like the "CHOSEN ONE", AKA the FOOD STAMP KING.

I would like to see the news ask Obama about his support of partial birth abortions and see if he gets half the coverage Akin recieved or if anyone calls for him to step down. Akin has raised $100,000 since this comment was made.

Your reading comprehension must be about as good as your spelling! You will find many times (even quite a few recently) the conservatives on this board have spoken out about the wars and how they are a waste of money. For whatever reason you feel it is better to spout off libtard talking points than sticking to the facts. That's fine but just realize your fantasy is not the real world and your understanding of what conservatives are for or against is severely lacking.
