    FYI: The famous Univ of Colorado analysis that recently showed Romney winning the election via the Electoral College vote total had Missouri a win for Romney. Imbecile Akin has certainly destroyed that, and he might even help dingy-harry retain d-cRAT control of the Senate.

    (With one A-hole potentially causes so much electoral destruction, I’m beginning to believe that seemingly crazy notion that a butterfly flapping its wings could cause significant changes elsewhere in the world.)

    I wonder how much the Dems are paying him to stay in and toss the race to Claire? I know it is of record that the Dems contributed one and a half million to his campaign.. how much to buy him off completely? I suppose some people win the lottery.. others go into politics to get rich. I am sure he will retire (after losing) very rich. What will be the final buyout figure, do you think?

  • old one

    I understand he could still drop out, by September 25. I guess he was required to resign his Rep. seat, and Ann Wagner is looking good for that seat. So, I guess he needs a job…

  • Mad Hatter

    The press conference was uninspiring. I thought he would try and persuade Conservatives to support him, and for voters to look past his comment.

    Instead, I seen him walk to the podium, unfold a prepared statement like an unprepared high school kid that was getting ready to speak to a class for the first time.

    If he thinks he’s going to win the Senate seat, he has to be a lot more motivating than that.

    He has to be a saboteur or a sleeper agent working for the democrats. No one could be that stupid and still have the power to walk unaided.

  • Objective Analysis

    yep, he is a democrat plant. Socialist and Nazi sympathizer with his comments about rape. Yeah, Claire the sleeze definitely wanted him to be the one she ran against. When you have democrats 10-20% voting in Republican primary to get him over the top, what do you expect.

  • Kate

    The man is delusional. I really don’t see what he will have to offer in the Senate if he is as insipid as he was in the press conference. You’re right. Wasn’t motivating at all. “Vote for me because you hate Claire” isn’t a grand call to support Akin.

    Godspeed & God Bless Mr. Akin!!

    with the exception of Paul Ryan..

    you are an official enemy of the Republican establishment pimps..

    Democrats spent $1.5 mil to help Akin win GOP primary
    August 20, 2012

    Call it a wise investment in light of his recent comments: Democrats wanted Missouri Republican congressman Todd Akin to win his state’s hotly contested Senate GOP primary because they believed he gave incumbent Senator Claire McCaskill her best shot at retaining her seat. As the Washington Post reported earlier this month:

    There’s a reason why Democrats spent over $1.5 million trying to help Akin win his three-way primary. He was the most conservative candidate in the field — and the most unpredictable one.

    Here’s how the Democrats did it, running ads in the GOP primary that were intended to boost his appeal among the most conservative primary voters…

    While Democrats are now blasting Akin’s comments on “legitimate rape,” one person is resisting calls for Akin to step aside: Claire McCaskill…
    Forgive me for being cynical, but how often does McCaskill worry about the concerns of GOP primary voters? It is something to bear in mind as you read about the growing media frenzy over Akin’s remarks. He got the nomination in large part because the Democrats wanted him to win because they hoped he would say something really stupid. Lucky for them, he obliged. Now that he has, they don’t want him to go away because if he does, so does the controversy he created.

    Hopefully he will do the Honorable thing in short time. . . So a stronger candidate can carry the state.

    😆 Democrat plant is just as true
    as the LIE perpetrated upon him..


  • Interesting

    Whether he is a stooge or bought and paid for by the Dems.. the result is the same.
    Isn’t it?

  • dwd

    If his numbers plummet fast enough, he might get the drift and finally bow out.

    It’s all about perception now, Todd, and whatever you meant to say, whatever you thought the “science” was, your mouth made you unelectable. Get out so we can win this seat. Get out so Romney doesn’t get dragged down with you.

  • Diamnond Girl

    “Unelectable” ….if your site keeps fighting him, you’ll be contributing to the leftist agenda. – Sad!

    win or lose Mr. Akin, you are man
    of principle, as is VP Paul Ryan!!

    IMO a write-in alternate has to be proposed and supported now. Qualifications: moderate Republican or Independant (who will caucus with Republicans), prominent, well-know person in Missouri, ready to start running now. To pull this off the candidate has to be able to win independant and some Democratic voters.

  • Opaobie

    Todd Akin needs a new slogan:

    You’re supposed to be more concerned about something I said than you are about what Claire McCaskill will do if she is reelected.
