From what Im hearing Akin will be dropping out of the race
Hard to believe I’m in agreement with the GOP..but it’s sure to be a once in a blue moon kind of thing!
This one should have been a slam dunk! What a mess indeed.
Yeah, but would we know the difference. The NRSC does all it can to prevent conservatives from getting into the senate.
Did Akin really say this?
The libs are probably livid for allowing this to get out so soon. They should have held it, when there was no chance for an escape route.
Paging Mrs. Palin... please have Ms Steelman pickup the red courtesy phone!
If this were in some hopelessly blue state, it wouldn’t really be a big deal, but this is the race that likely keeps the Senate in Harry Reid’s hands.
Say hello to permanent Obamacare.
Collosal jewel of stupidity. Akin needs to go. How stupid can he be? This will be such a distraction and heck, the other 2 runners up are also conservative and will have a better chance.
Well, duh. Republicans have enough sense not to flush money down the toilet when the could spend it somewhere that produces actual results.
It is indeed. If Akin withdraws then who do the Republicans install in his place? Steelman’s supporters will think she should get it, Brunner’s supporters will think he should get it, whichever one is chosen will face the fact that over 2/3rds of the voters think their candidate got shafted.
Republicans are such wussies. With a capital W.
Biden says things equally dumb twice daily.
But he gets a pass because he’s a tard.
I want to win this seat just as much as the next person, but no one had better let any facts stand in the way!
The truth is there have been any number of reports of women who have claimed “rape” when they in fact had buyer's remorse from the previous night or discovered they might be pregnant. Additionally, ask any credible infertility clinic in this county. Is it easier to get pregnant under a highly fearful stressful situation or when one is relaxed, such as in the context of a loving marriage.
Gee, that doesn't sound too unreasonable. Yet, people are so craven to make a political win that they appear eager to forgo truth and honesty and just summarily political execute someone.
Many people in this country feel that there isn't a dimes worth of difference between the two parties (Republicans and Democrats).
We are currently engaged in a very pivotal election cycle that will determine the future course of this nation. The Tea Party Republicans are poised to build on their 2010 victories by increasing their hold on the House and taking control of the Senate. It is now looking more likely that Obama will be removed from the White House as well.
Here is a chance where the Republican party can really show the American people that yes, there is a difference between the Republicans and the Democrats.
While the Democrats are content to have a horse's ass as our vice-president and rush to defend every Democrat that gets caught up in corruption or scandal, the Republicans are not afraid to clean up their own house and raise the standards that our lawmakers must live by.
Removing (or forcing) Akin from the senate race is NOT a sign of weakness but a sign of strength. The Republicans already have substitute candidates ready to go. We can afford to set our standards high.
Let the Democrats be saddled with idiots like Joe Biden. It will be quite a contrast for the Republicans to replace their own "Joe Bidens" and show the nation that they are serious about taking back this country and moving it in the right direction.
We don't need to be defending this guy's stupid remarks for the next 10 weeks. We don't need to "neutralize" the Biden issue by rallying behind Akin. Let's not have this be a distraction. Replace Akin and move on with the serious business we have before us.
Plus, we really need this senate seat and cannot afford to muck it up.
He’s gone... at least if he has a brain. If he isn’t he just becomes a lightning rod and a distraction for the presidential campaign. I can’t imagin this guy if he’s got a few brain cells firing, won’t be withdrawing within a day or two.
Whether Republican or Democrat, politicians are members of the “Political Class”—more a warning label than an occupational designation.
what evidence was there they would give him anything any way?
I don’t care what this guy has for an explanation. He NEEDS to be thrown under the bus, TODAY.
This has to be as bad of a blunder as a candidate can make. He said it, it’s out there, and he’s done. Remaining in the race is a free seat for the dems, and this year the Congressional+Senate seats are more important than ever, because no matter whomever wins the presidency, we’re gonna have a liberal in office. They will need to be held in check.
