Skip to comments.Akin Says He Has No Plans to Quit Missouri Senate Race
Posted on 08/20/2012 12:24:53 PM PDT by Blackyce
Akin said he has no plans to withdraw.
I dont know that Im the only person in public office whos suffered from foot-in-mouth disease here, and this was a very, very serious error. On the other hand, there are so many good people in Missouri who nominated me, and they understood my heart, Akin said.
Akin said no Republicans have called him and asked him to withdraw from the race.
No one has called me and said, Todd, I think you should drop out, Akin said. No one has said that. But I gather people are saying that in the media, but they didnt specifically call me and tell me that.

Look: Akin took a full spread of his own torpedoes amidships. He’s breaking up.
Damn shame. Akins record (voting) should speak louder than his words. He is more conservative by far than Romney or Scott Brown.
As for Anne Coulter’s comments..she dated Bill Maher and I have no respect for her..period.
Brunner would be next in line as far as votes went..not Steelman
Its called picking battles we can win, fighting a battle that costs us the war does no unborn person any good.
Akin’s needs to go quickly before its too late. The left will uses him like an albatross around our necks, its what they been icing for all year. He will not only cost us a winnable senate senate he may very well costs us everywhere else.
We have nether the time nor resources to rebuild his reputation in an election cycle. He needs to go before its too late.
Well, congratulations on your re-election, Senator McCaskill.... gah
Even 50 years ago, people knew that Akin idiotic nonsense was, in fact, idiotic nonsense. People have known that women could be impregnated by rape for as long as they've known how women get impregnated in general.
If the obvious explanation (MALNUTRITION) didn't occur to you, or the author, you're both dumber than Akin, and that's quite a feat.
I was personally repulsed by the comments implying that women have a rape-pregnancy-prevention-kit in thier uterii.
It's not just the MSM.
Right. And stress (severe), sleep disruptions, inadequate food, non-existent medical care, and poor sanitation played no role.
No offense to you, but ....
Dude needs gone.
I think I have become inured to stupidity. That’s a sad fact.
btw abd fwiw - I finally decided that the guy needs to fold ‘em. His failure to mount a credible defense - his no show on CNN being the last straw.

If you dislike the Coulter-Maher liaison, how did you feel about Carville-Matlin?
How true..I wondered what was so awful in what he said..I have read more idiot things the left says every day with nothing like this.My word, you would have thought the man had killed a baby..The left has nothing on the republicans and will jump at anything..
NRSC to Akin, we wont spend a dime!
My E-MAIL to the NRSC
There you go again, your candidate in MO uses the wrong word to cite a fact. The Alinsky cadre of the Democrat party starts frothing at the mouth and you roll over on your backs and meekly plead “ we didn’t mean to hurt your feelings”.
You testicle deprived illegitimate offspring, get up on your hind legs and fight. The best defence is a full out attack.
The Republican party doing what they do best, working doubly hard to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
My comment 118 was for you..don’t know why your name wasn’t on there...
