RF23 - If It Ain't One Thing


RF23 – If It Ain’t One Thing…

I’m only going to opine about the idiotic statement made by Todd Akin one or two times and that’s it, but my opinion is this:
I agree that the statement made by him was straight up dumb and unfounded, but I disagree with him resigning from the campaign for the senate seat in the State of Missouri and calls for him to do so.
Why?
After realizing, that his statement was dumb, he immediately apologized on the Mike Huckabee Show and now two times on the Sean Hannity Show and in spite of jabs to announce his resignation from the campaign, Akin stood steadfast and said no to resignation. 
I agree.
Why?
How is it that every time a republican candidate, a conservative supporter or what have you says something or does something, they immediately have to resign or do the fill in the blank liberal talk show perp walk to profusely apologize.  Meanwhile, any and all statements said by the democrats, or progressive supporters go unchallenged and at times unreported.  Last week, Biden said this about Romney and banks:

"[He] going to let the big banks once again write their own rules - unchain Wall Street!" adding, "They're going to put you all back in chains."

Did anyone call for the obama to denounce those statements?  Were there cries for biden to resign?  This isn’t the first racial blast for biden:.

Who remembers this little blast made by biden ? and this ?

Yet, Obama rolls right along, had enough of biden?  How about the keynote speaker of this years democratic convention, bill clinton.  According to the late Senator ted kennedy, bill clinton was looking for support for then candidate hillary clinton for president.  Kennedy said that obama would be serving us coffee and the only reason kennedy is supporting obama is because he's black . 

Nothin’

And this is same bill clinton that was impeached for perjury and accurately charged with a list of inappropiate advances and sexual harrassment .

But it’s Akin that has to resign from his campaign and it’s not democrats calling for it, because this for some reason is the lightning rod, the smoking gun if you will, that republicans hate women, women who abort babies and like to under pay them in the job force.   It’s the republican base that is requesting that Akin end his campaign and I’m going to say this.  Memo to conservative talk show hosts, get your big mouths from the safety of a radio studio and run for office, if you have the answers.  Yesterday, national conservative radio host Mark Levin, said he wasn’t calling for the resignation of Akin, but thinks he should and today, all but implored the congressman to do so under the guise of the need of the country.  Levin said Akin let the base and the country down, with his statement. Regardless of his multiple apologies, Akin believes he can win, because the state of Missouri is a pro-life state.  Akin also immediately got to the issue of what’s really hurting the country, starting with the current administration in the White House and the current incumbent representing the state of Missouri.

And how does this hurt Romney?  Romney already expressed his disagreement.  He should move on and continue being on the offensive and deflecting the obama regime’s request for more tax records.  And while I’m on this, hey obama, the day Romney discloses more of his tax records, is the day you disclose your education records.  You have got to be the only president, whose intelligence is word of mouth and not backed up by, I dunno, education transcripts!

Here’s a question, does everyone in the democratic party support abortions and the tag of being the party of abortions.  Probably not, jimmy carter recently opined about abortions on his book tour. Carter said he thinks the party should curb its opinion on the subject and maybe it’ll bring back conservative democrats who believe abortions are wrong, which includes if the mother was raped.  Look I believe every male and ugly female sex predator should be hung until dead, but I won’t judge the woman, who exercises her decision to terminate a pregnancy because she was raped.

My closing opinion is to let Akin continue his campaign run and let him dig himself out of his gaffe.  The base should continue denouncing the statement, but support the campaign based off the issues, not emotions.
