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.
It’s already mucked up. Whatever Akin decides, Claire wins. Game set match. We now have to hope one of their Senators that was expected to win is defeated.
I second your very thought out posting. My big concern is to be able to show the differences.
