Barack Obama, our next President

PS And if it was just a harmless incorrect statement, then why is The GOP no longer supporting him and asking him to step down ???

Like a deer caught in the headlights, or a better analogy:
"A drunken Man speaks a sober mind" ...
"A drunken Man's words are that sober Man's thoughts".
Take your pick. Just because he retracted the statement, doesn't mean that it is not his view on the abortion-rape issue. It IS.
Next, Weiner's "harassment" of Women, was a testament to his moral character which had no effect on setting legislation or policy.
Akin's "incorrect statement" is beyond harassment of Women.
It's setting misogynistic Gestapo policy against Women.
What part don't you understand? This isn't JUST an abortion issue.
It is a denial of abortion to a rape victim who becomes pregnant as a result of that violent act.
THAT'S the difference.
I can't even believe this obvious needs to be pointed out to you.

I'm just going to play devil's advocate here for a minute. You libs don't go off the deep end. Look up "devil's advocate" first.
Seems to me the worst thing Akin said was "legitimate" rape. Now, of course, that opens up a whole can of ugly worms. But maybe, just maybe, he was thinking of that black woman who had accused those three college kids of rape and...stay with me...if she had become pregnant by someone else, it wouldn't have been a "legitimate" rape.
There's no getting around his understanding of the female body being amazingly ignorant, i.e. "shutting down". That was just plain stupid. But, again, just maybe his zealousy about anti-abortion convinced him this was true, and he's only guilty of allowing his good intentions to protect the unborn coming across sounding stupid and ignorant.
Most pro-lifers believe incest, rape and the mother's health are the only exceptions to abortion. Akin doesn't happen to go that far. But does that make him a terrible person? No, it just makes him too zealous, but his opinion doesn't carry any weight whatsoever.
He embarrassed the party and should have done the right thing by stepping aside. Which apparently isn't going to happen. It's just unfortunate he had to reveal his overzealousy - and ignorance - at this particular time.
Okay, now I'm done playing devil's advocate.
But someone will still accuse me of defending him. So I'm prepared.
"Look up devils advocate"? That's pretty condescending even for you. You know what I think the worst thing he said was?

"Legitimate rape rarely leads to pregnancy". Good intentions? Lol. That's comforting. The fact that a person with this level of intelligence would or should have a say in any policies governing this country is a total joke. He re-affirms to most of the country what we already knew about the "Tea Party". The majority are a bunch of batshit crazy, misinformed, lying nitwits. He needs to crawl back under his rock taking his ignorant, backwoods policies with him. Leave the governing to people who understand simple, basic facts when it comes to science and biology. You know, the people with brains.

BTW..Paul Ryan doesn't believe incest, rape and the mother's health are the only exceptions to abortion. Quite the opposite. He's on the same page as Aiken. But maybe not today.

How ObamaCare Hurts Seniors continued
Dr Marc Siegel

...a recent Doctor Patient Medical Association poll found that 74% of doctors say they will stop accepting Medicare patients or will leave Medicare entirely because of Obamacare.

I believe Rep. Paul Ryan’s proposal to save Medicare dollars by raising the eligibility age to 67 is a step in the right direction toward saving the entire program.

Back when George was 65, we didn’t have the same preventive treatments available, and people weren’t as well informed about the positive benefits of diet and exercise. Today’s 65-year-old is in much better shape, generally, than George was.

The Ryan plan — which could potentially become the law of the land if Mitt Romney becomes President — makes far more sense for George and the rest of my patients than the excessive restrictions coming from Washington under Obamacare.

The Romney/Ryan plan would keep traditional fee-for-service Medicare as an option while at the same time allowing seniors to use the money to buy private insurance.

This insurance must provide comparable coverage if patients like George select that option.

Private insurance provided to elderly workers or Medicare Advantage are becoming easier for doctors like me to work with than traditional Medicare, which is already becoming more restrictive.

Romney’s plan will provide lower-income seniors like George with more support while allowing richer patients the option of paying out of pocket for more expensive plans.

What’s not to like about that?

Recently, my father-in-law, 85, had an extensive bladder cancer robotically removed through a minimal incision; at the same time, my own father needed two visits to different urologists before he knew for sure that his bladder had dropped into a hernia.

I have a sinking feeling that neither my father’s workup nor my father-in-law’s operation would be approved by Obamacare’s board.

But, in a crucial distinction, they would be covered under the kind of private insurance that the Romney/Ryan plan would allow senior citizens to buy.

Medicare as we know it is more likely to survive by adding options, not by taking them away.

http://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/obamacare-...

i've been passing along this info to all seniors i know...the MSM/Obama lapdogs are not going to report on what ObamaCare means to today's seniors, they're busy scaring them with distortions about Ryan's plan for future seniors.

Agreed!

It boggles the mind.

They know Mitt can't win!

So they are just using him?

Spending billions to sling insults at the President every 5 minutes on TV!

During the Olympics!

They really have become gutter trash <------Republicans!

Mitt tells London and Europe: You sckkkk!! The day before the best Olympics in decades?

It's comical! They must love burning money and embarrassing themselves on a "grand" scale!

What I see when I look at Romney and Ryan..Two snot nosed, uppity,tight assed rich punks that are willing to say and do anything to further their ambition of becoming all powerful, but neither have a clue as to what it takes to become a real man and never will.
Like Bush and Cheney before them, they have no clue about what it takes to earn a living, hard work, concern for the poor, women's rights, the average working man. All of their knowledge and expertise is self serving and to accomplish that all they have to do is use all you righties like the sheep you have shown to be, and prove here daily.
How any woman or minority along with the average working man could even consider these two stuff shirts as leaders is a sad testimony to their level of being indoctrinated and cluelessness.
Posts like yours keep making us aware of the need to keep Libs out of Congress and especially out of The White House. You nut job anti Americans will destroy our Country given the chance. The last 3 1/2 years bear testimony to that sad fact.

“I apologized but the liberal media is trying to make me drop out.” Todd Akin via Twitter

Would this be the “liberal media” that includes Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter and Sean Hannity who are all collectively demanding that Akin drop out? Holy hell, when you say something too stupid for Hannity, Limbaugh and Palin, and you consider them to be a part of the “liberal media,” you’re insanely far-right.

Anyway, it’s too late. Akin missed the drop out deadline in Missouri. You’re stuck with this doofus, Republicans.
