Huckabee digs in behind Akin
Politico ^ | // | Alexander Burns

Posted on 08/23/2012 11:55:47 AM PDT by TonyInOhio

Todd Akin hasn't had many high-profile supporters with him in the trenches this week, but Mike Huckabee became an important and emphatic exception Thursday afternoon, sending a message to his own supporters accusing Republican elites of trying to drum a good man out of a winnable Senate race. Here's what Huckabee said in an email to his list this afternoon:

Party’s leaders have for reasons that aren't rational, left [Akin] behind on the political battlefield, wounded and bleeding, a casualty of his self-inflicted, but not intentional wound.

Gomer shows up again to screw the rest of us over. I'd bet anything that the only reason Akin stayed around is because Huckabee told him he'd raise his cash for him.

Huckabee is a moron, so this isn’t surprising. I bet this schmuck is the one who convinced him to stay in.

Why? We are stuck with Akin so might as well try to win. If Romney and the other establishment types would learn to STFU, it would have been much easier to win and all this would have been forgotten by the time the hurricane is a few days out. It wasn’t the dems that turned this into a national circus.

I also don’t care these days if he is a ‘good man’ this is not about him.

THIS IS ABOUT OUR COUNTRY.

How did the Huckster find it possible to lump Sarah Palin, Paul Ryan, and the Tea Party Express in with the nameless "Republican Elites"?

You can already see how this plays out - Gomer the Pious leads his band of followers into keeping Akin in the race, watches him get crushed in November, and then blames the "GOP Establishment" for the defeat.

Like they let “Mucaca” go away? Yet George Allen still almost pulled that race off and now he is back running for the same seat. I’m sorry, but Akin’s comments being as ignorant as they were, he got railroaded by the GOPe, not the dems. He admitted the error, apologised, and with a double digit lead, it could have been overcome.

Mike Huckabee probably thinks he has a special responsibility for “Tool” Akin, or “Tooth” Akin, or whatever his name is, because of his “good Christian values”. And it was on Huckabee’s show, where these double gaffes were recited in almost one breath.

But cuss it all, you just can’t fix stupid. Apologize, maybe, but why not at least plead ignorance of up-to-date medical information? There is no “magical” way the complex process of conception is simply shut down because the experience was highly traumatic.

And why does any practicing conservative want to simply GIVE AWAY what should have been an almost slam-dunk win for the GOP?

Maybe Akin is doing God’s work. But does that mean getting Claire McCaskill re-elected to the Senate?

Because that is the effect.

Thank You for your courage. I’m sure you’ll get flamed for taking a stand. I think I’m with the majority of commentors here at FR in that I consider myself a conservative and against RINO’s; however, I’ve never fully understood the dislike of Mike Huckabee here. I voted for him in 2008 primaries because I thought he was by far the most pro-2nd Ammendment candidate on the ballot.

He already said as much...

If Todd Akin loses the Senate seat, I will not blame Todd Akin. He made his mistake, but was man enough to admit it and apologize. I'm waiting for the apology from whoever the genius was on the high pedestals of our party who thought it wise to not only shoot our wounded, but run over him with tanks and trucks and then feed his body to the liberal wolves.

Todd Akin’s words......
“It seems to me first of all, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let’s assume that didn’t work or something. I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist, and not attacking the child.”

Akin’s comments were badly stated but hardly worth the death penalty. The Republican party was way to quick to kill their own young. Instead of treating the wound they shot the patient.

Representative Todd Akin Was Never Accused of Rape — Unlike Bill Clinton, who will have a key speaking role at the Democrat Convention

I did not vote for Akin in the Missouri primary but come November, I will cast my vote for anyone but McCaskill.

people need to meet politicians in person. Many of them will leave you with the impression that they are “dumb as a doornail”

akin may be conservative, but he may still be stuck on stupid.

There is a REASON democrats paid 1.5 million for him to win the primary. He seems a mental midget which is an insult to little people.

Is this what you support?

“Who ordered this “Code Red” on Akin? There were talking point memos sent from the National Republican Senatorial Committee suggesting language to urge Akin to drop out. Political consultants were ordered to stay away from Akin or lose future business with GOP committees. Operatives were recruited to set up a network of pastors to call Akin to urge him to get out. Money has changed hands to push him off the plank. It is disgraceful. From the spotlights of political offices and media perches, it may appear that the demand for Akin’s head is universal in the party. I assure you it is not. There is a vast, but mostly quiet army of people who have an innate sense of fairness and don’t like to see a fellow political pilgrim bullied.”

Todd Akin hasn't had many high-profile supporters with him in the trenches this week, but Mike Huckabee became an important and emphatic exception Thursday afternoon, sending a message to his own supporters accusing Republican elites of trying to drum a good man out of a winnable Senate race. Here's what Huckabee said in an email to his list this afternoon:

The Party’s leaders have for reasons that aren't rational, left [Akin] behind on the political battlefield, wounded and bleeding, a casualty of his self-inflicted, but not intentional wound. In a Party that supposedly stands for life, it was tragic to see the carefully orchestrated and systematic attack on a fellow Republican. Not for a moral failure or corruption or a criminal act, but for a misstatement which he contritely and utterly repudiated. I was shocked by GOP leaders and elected officials who rushed so quickly to end the political life of a candidate over a mistaken comment in an interview. This was a serious mistake, but it was blown out of proportion not by the left, but by Akin's own Republican Party. Is this what the party really thinks of principled pro-life advocates? Do we forgive and forget the verbal gaffes of Republicans who are "conveniently pro-life" for political advantage, but crucify one who truly believes that every life is sacred?

Who ordered this "Code Red" on Akin? There were talking point memos sent from the National Republican Senatorial Committee suggesting language to urge Akin to drop out. Political consultants were ordered to stay away from Akin or lose future business with GOP committees. Operatives were recruited to set up a network of pastors to call Akin to urge him to get out. Money has changed hands to push him off the plank. It is disgraceful. From the spotlights of political offices and media perches, it may appear that the demand for Akin’s head is universal in the party. I assure you it is not. There is a vast, but mostly quiet army of people who have an innate sense of fairness and don't like to see a fellow political pilgrim bullied. If Todd Akin loses the Senate seat, I will not blame Todd Akin. He made his mistake, but was man enough to admit it and apologize. I'm waiting for the apology from whoever the genius was on the high pedestals of our party who thought it wise to not only shoot our wounded, but run over him with tanks and trucks and then feed his body to the liberal wolves. It wasn't just Todd Akin that was treated with contempt by the thinly veiled attack on Todd Akin. It was all the people who have faithfully knocked doors, made calls, and made sacrificial contributions to elect Republicans because we thought we were welcome in the party. Todd Akin owned his mistake. Who will step up and admit the effort being made to discredit Akin and apologize for the sleazy way it's been handled?

I’ve always believed and still do, that if you don’t honor your friendships, you don’t honor yourself. And I consider Todd a friend. So I will join Todd as often as I can, in his fight for our Party’s pro-life policies, traditional marriage and our efforts to rein in the massive expansion of government under President Obama. Todd is being systematically scourged for one thing he said. Is that more important than what Claire McCaskill has DONE over her 6 years in the Senate? If you’d like to join the fight, and help defeat a Democrat Senator standing in the way of a conservative majority, I encourage you to join me. The party has decided it won't help. In fact, it has decided that it will try to cut off the supply lines to Akin to pressure him to exit and let the party bosses overturn the voters of Missouri and pick their own candidate. If this can happen to Todd Akin, who is next?

I’ve heard the talk of new deadlines and the nonsense about the Republican Party running a 3rd party candidate, but I am no longer listening to that noise. The idea that our Party would continue to play games behind the scenes and feed the Democrats make-believe narrative of the GOP’s fictional war on women is equally ridiculous. Now is the time to focus on electing a conservative Senate Majority. And if the NRSC and RNC and the money-rich PACS won't help Todd Akin get us to the majority, then we'll do it without them. And his seat will not have been sold to the highest bidder, but obtained by the highest principles.

Whether Huckabee's referring to her or not, Sarah Palin is probably the most prominent Republican to raise the "nonsense" idea of drafting in a third-party candidate.

Your Post #24 is spot-on.

Akin’s syncophants are already doing that on Free Republic. In their minds, this whole mess is the fault of the “GOP establishment” or “GOP elites”. Todd Akin was speaking the truth, they say.

Anyone who doesn’t follow their line of thinking must somewhow be connected with the (insert sinister laugh here) “GOP establishment”.

Yesterday we began reminding folks of Akin's solidly conservative voting record and encouraging the republican talking heads to walk back the attacks before catching too much egg on their faces. Today, it seems, that has begun. I for one am grateful. I thank them for listening. The chances of Missouri replacing McCaskill are far better sticking with Akin than threading needles to get withdrawals and court orders and a well-known viable replacements. It's just common sense.

I happen to agree with you. This whole affair is a good example of how knee jerk responses can often be wrong, due to the shallow amount of thinking before making a judgement. I have never liked or admired Huckabee, but in this situation, he is correct. The GOP acted hastily, and stupidly.

Republicans always shoot their wounded; Democrats rarely shoot their wounded, and then only if they have no other choice. In the face of ANYTHING, liberals stick - as long as they can win with any sort of behavior - they stick.

Since I live in Missouri I feel free to correct you. Missouri is a 'swing' state. McCain/Palin won by a hair.

The majority of the population of the state reside in the KCmetro and St. Louismetro areas. They are ruled by liberals. IF Akin stays on the ballot the choice will be him or Claire.... Third party candidates usually do not have much of an impact.

What Akin needs to 'win' are the ever wavering sensitive so called independents. They NEVER like to be ridiculed and they will in droves vote for the candidate that appears to be the JonStewart's media choice.... And then along comes Akin pumping life into the liberals sacred cow 'women's right to choose' and now who do you think those sensitive so call independents are going to vote for.... most especially the 'women'. Akin appears to be satisfied with only becoming a martyr, NOT actually winning so he can literally do something.

McKaskills staffers must have been near oragsmic when they ran to tell her “OMG GUESS WHAT AKIN JUST SAID?!?!?”
