While Patriotic Americans are facing the most important, and contentious, Presidential election in the history of this country, we have Republicans like Congressman Todd Akin shooting us in the foot!
By now, everyone is aware of the outrageous statement he made on the topic of Abortion, and Rape.
Now he's trying to deny he meant what he said, without coming straight out and saying "I was completely WRONG, and had no right to say what I said, and I'm ashamed I made such a foolish remark."
Instead of admitting he made an idiotic statement, he is now blaming the GOP for making this an issue!
The words "legitimate" and "rape" NEVER go together, no matter what he meant to say.
The real problem is that the Media have been intentionally linking "legitimate", "rape" and "Romney campaign" together, which makes the GOP appear to be guilty by association. Obama campaign attacks are now focusing on this issue, and it's working.
Whether you are "Right To Life", or "Pro Choice", you will agree that Mr. Akin's statement was completely unacceptable.
It has alienated any Independent or undecided Liberal voters from the GOP platform.
He should step down before it's too late, and give the Conservatives a chance to get a Republican elected for Missouri, instead of another Liberal.
The GOP must NOT become a minority party in Congress. We already saw what happened in 2008-2009!
