Barack Obama Slams MO Republican Todd Akin at NBA Fundraiser

Thank You Todd Akin.
Thank You Akin campaign media consultant, Rex Elsass.

Thank you Todd Akin for bringing down the Republican Party with you.
Missouri Republican Todd Akin continues to make headlines.

Obama used Todd Akin’s outrageous rape remarks tonight in New York speech.
Yahoo-ABC reported:

President Obama laid into embattled Republican Rep. Todd Akin of Missouri for his recent comments on rape and abortion, telling a crowd of campaign donors on Wednesday night that the congressman must have “somehow missed science class.”

“Recently some of you have been paying attention to the commentary about the senator (sic) from Missouri, Mr. Akin, who … the interesting thing here is that this is an individual who sits on the House Committee on Science and Technology but somehow missed science class,” Obama said, drawing laughter and applause.

“And it’s representative of the desire to go backwards instead of forwards and fight fights that we thought were settled 20 or 30 years ago,” he added.

The president was addressing a group of 120 current and former NBA stars and other wealthy supporters attending the $20,000 per plate “Obama Classic” fundraiser in New York City. Spotted in the crowd were co-host Michael Jordan and his fiancee, Yvette Prieto, Bill Bradley, Patrick Ewing, Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Walt “Clyde” Frazier.

“This is my dream team,” Obama told the group at the top of his remarks.

Meanwhile the Obama Campaign continued to link the Romney-Ryan ticket to Todd Akin in another donations email on Wednesday night.

    Ryan hammers on Obama economy

    [As chairman of the House Budget Committee, Ryan authored a budget
    plan aimed at reducing debt largely by restructuring Medicare and other
    entitlement programs.

    “This is a debate that we want,” Ryan said.
    “This is a debate that we’re going to win.”

    Obama and Democrats have attacked that plan, largely because it calls
    for creating an alternative to the Medicare program that would give future
    retirees a fixed amount of money to purchase private health coverage.
    Ryan, however, fired back, citing $716 billion in planned cuts to Medicare
    that are scheduled to occur under the federal health care overhaul. Obama
    has said the savings would be used for other health care costs, including
    preventive care for senior citizens.]

    Did the choomer say anything about the no-snitchin drug-pusher he hangs with ?

  • Hy Feiber

    About missing class, President Dummy must have missed Econ 101! What a Putz!

  • kato

    Sounds like Subprime was milking the rape remark before an audience that likely contained several rapists.

  • Hy Feiber

    A President and his Attorney General send high-powdered weapons to Mexican drug cartels who use them to murder US Border Control Agents, and he, Obama, ignores the cries for justice from the victims’ parents! Now he is seeking to distract all of us from his Treason. What a Psycho!

    High-Powered I meant.

    If only Obama can stay on abortion long enough to show the low information voters that this is his issue, and he has nothing to offer for our economic distress, then his candidacy will be well and truly doomed.

    re: Obama Campaign continued to link
    the Romney-Ryan ticket to Todd Akin

    Akin comments stemmed from a paper written by:
    John C. Willke, M.D who endorsed Romney in 2007

    Ya know, if you take the above picture of Obama, and put glasses on him, he would look just like Gustavo Fring in Breaking Bad.

  • Redwine

    Did Abortionist-in-Chief comment on his support of infanticide and how he thinks this will bring on an economic recovery?

    What a drugged up Marxist imbecile.

  • Right Wing Conservative

    I know as a Christian I am supposed to love everyone, but looking at that picture sure makes it hard for me to love him. All I see is evil. I cringe whenever I see a picture of this man.

    Who does he think he is to judge someone on a gaff, Mr. 57 states? Mr. bows to other leaders in third world countries, ‘look at me I’m the President of the United States of America bowing to you Mr Saudi King, aren’t I wonderful.’ Mr. giving of gifts to heads of state that won’t even plug into their outlets, tacky gifts at that. Mr. one gaff after another. Why don’t you go judge weather or not your next crap is good enough for the presidential throne you big gaff.

    This is actually good news. Obama needs stuff like this desperately. He can’t stand on his record and is in the middle of dropping bricks over having to debate his record after the conventions.

    He’s at 45% approval 75 days out and the economy is tanking. Goose: Cooked.

  • Multitude

    Obama: “Todd Akin somehow missed science class.”

    Multitude: “Barack Obama somehow failed economics class.”

    And not just once…

    Bryan Fischer: Akin: Hyenas in the GOP
    ignore medical science, eat their own..

    [The slavering, slobbering hyenas in the Republican party, by tearing at
    the flesh of their own senatorial candidate Todd Akin, are doing their best
    to blow their shot at taking control of the Senate. By eating their own,
    they are consuming themselves. And they seem too brainless to know it.]

    a sad Amen to that bit of truth.. :-(

    y’all catch this? same event⬇

    “President Obama joined a group of former NBA stars at a fundraiser at New York’s Lincoln Center Wednesday night. With Michael Jordan, Patrick Ewing, Walt Frazier, Bill Bradley and other basketball legends sitting nearby — “It’s very rare that I come to an event where I’m like the fifth- or sixth-most interesting person,” …(Byron York, Washington Examiner)

    OMG who talks like this? who even THINKS! like this?
    hint: a narcissistic dictator
    (okay, so report me to the Department of Redundancy Department)

    Rape Pregnancies Are Rare (#28)

    by John C. Willke, M.D.
    April 1999

    [Finally, factor in what is certainly one of the most important reasons
    why a rape victim rarely gets pregnant, and that’s physical trauma.
    Every woman is aware that stress and emotional factors can alter
    her menstrual cycle. To get and stay pregnant a woman’s body must
    produce a very sophisticated mix of hormones. Hormone production is
    controlled by a part of the brain that is easily influenced by emotions.
    There’s no greater emotional trauma that can be experienced by a
    woman than an assault rape. This can radically upset her possibility of
    ovulation, fertilization, implantation and even nurturing of a pregnancy.
    So what further percentage reduction in pregnancy will this cause? No
    one knows, but this factor certainly cuts this last figure by at least 50
    percent and probably more. If we use the 50 percent figure, we have a
    final figure of 225 (or 370) women pregnant each year. These numbers
    closely match the 200 that have been documented in clinical studies.]
