Rush: "77% of Missourians forgive Akin; only trails by one (1) Point" (Vanity)
Rush Limbaugh Radio: 8-31-12 | September 1, 2012 | pistolpackinpapa

Posted on 09/01/2012 8:02:54 AM PDT by pistolpackinpapa

Those of you who listened to Rush yesterday already know this, but: Just as he was coming upon a commercial break, at one point in the broadcast, he closed out with this statement: "Latest poll shows 77 percent of Missourians forgive Todd Akin. He trails McCaskill by only one point. Hmmmmmmm.........."

Imagine where the race would be if the GOPe & the ‘moderates’ hadn’t behave like Pavlov’s dog at the sight of a rolled up newspaper.

With Akin in our out, I want a Republican win, for the Senate and for Romney. The all out assault on Akin by the GOP, and people who should have known better, have made winning Missouri difficult, to say the least.

Yes, Akin said something which sounds absurd, and the liberals hyperventilated.

Even many Republicans hyperventilated about it. But at the end of the day, are conservatives in Missouri really going to vote for McKaskill (sp?) again, just because Akin said something stupid? Liberals say stupid things all the time and it doesn’t matter.

And, are those same voters really going to vote for Obama, to punish Romney because a fellow Repulican said something stupid?

I think this race in Missouri with Akin may well be very close.

Yep. He said something really stupid and I'll admit I was among the Republicans who hyperventilated about it. Yet in my heart I knew that there was no realistic chance at this time to replace him with someone else and I also knew that if I lived in Missouri, I'd still vote for him regardless of the extremely moronic comment he made.

Hope he pulls it off and I hope the idiocy "legitimate rape" never again leaves his lips. And I hope conservative candidates learn a valuable lesson from this. It's all too easy to hobble a campaign by putting your foot in your mouth.

I don’t think he can win, don’t think it will very close either.

But I hope he wins and if he does you can crow about it, I won’t mind a bit.

The Republican Establishment hates social conservatives — Karl Rove is an example of the RINO’s contempt.

I can't directly oppose people like Rove, but I can fight back by sending donations to Todd Akin.

It is my hope that an army of conservatives will rally to support Todd Akin, and that he will be elected to the Senate.

Take that, Rove.

“Newt defended him yesterday”

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

That is fine if Republican surrogates like Gingrich defend him. Romney and Ryan and the RNC should still stay far away, and not say anything, or provide any money.

If Akin can win on his own, that is fine. We likely need that seat to win back the Senate, and we likely need MO’s 10 EV’s to win POTUS.

The furor seems to have passed here, but it will start right back up if Romney/Ryan/RNC give him any kind of support. No one should be fooled into thinking otherwise.

We cannot give the Left fuel to energize their base, de-energize our base, and win sympathy for the independents.

If this refers to the poll taken by an advocacy group one has to be skeptical of its validity. Did Rush not do his normal homework?

Not that I don’t want the RAT defeated though.

The Akin “conroversy” brought out just how many will murder innocent babies.

If you allow the rape and incest exceptions you are simply setting vague limits on whic innocent baies you will murder.

No question is more fundamental than “are you comfortable with killing a baby to make your own life or someone else’s life more materially satisfying ?”

While we have the same goals, we must also be politically and incrementally pragmatic.

If you try to get everything all at once, you will most definitely alienate the needed middle, and fanatically energize the opposition base. Then you will never get anything.

Best is to take this in steps. Eliminate 99% of abortions now. Once the culture gets acclimated, the last 1% should be easy.

Anything less is *that* clown's fault.

As I've asked you before: whose fault would it be if Akin wins and Romney loses? I don't expect such an outcome but perhaps the people of Missouri would like a real conservative and not the phony one at the top of the Republican ticket.

It's probably a stretch but I could see some independents splitting their tickets and voting for someone who has firm convictions (even if the voter isn't that wild about the convictions) and a waffler who opportunistically says whatever he thinks you want to hear. I know several people who voted for Ronald Reagan twice even though they didn't agree much with his politics but were attracted to the sincerity of his convictions. There is something very unnerving about a candidate who won't tell you what he or she really believes or who lack convictions and flip flops all over the place - you just don't know what you are getting.

If you're defining what you said I already knew that. Kind of obvious from the direct statement "I've got 1000 cases of ammo in my shed."

If you're saying that I, personally, have more than 1k cases of ammo then you're wrong. Maybe a thousand rounds. Maybe. I wouldn't store ammo in my shed either. That's just dumb.

No translation needed to see how you think though. LOL
