Hannity Tells Todd Akin to Resign …(He Must Resign By Tomorrow or We Are Screwed)

Sean Hannity told Todd Akin to resign today.
Real Clear Politics reported:

In an interview with nationally syndicated radio talk show host Sean Hannity this afternoon beleaguered U.S. Senate hopeful Todd Akin (R-Missouri) said he is staying in the race despite controversy and widespread condemnation of his remarks on rape.

“I’m announcing today that we’re going to stay in,” Akin said on the radio.

This led Hannity to ask if he is thinking about anyone but himself.

“As a political observer I see it differently here. I think for the next week all you’re going to hear from Democrats is your comments. And, look, I’m a Christian so I believe in forgiveness. And I can just tell by the sound of your voice that you’re very sincere in your apology. But I also — I think there is one political reality that I think has to be faced by you and your campaign and that is that you know, the reality here is that Democrats now have a ton of ammunition and they are now going to try to use these remarks to hurt everybody they can. And if I was put in that position, I would at least be thinking about what is in the best interest of the party. hat is in the best interest of, you know, Mitt Romney in this case. What is in the best interest of the people of Missouri, are they going to be able to hear a campaign about issues or is this going to be the distraction of the campaign. Are you — you’re not even considering that?” Hannity asked.

“Those are all legitimate points, Sean, and you know I’m trained as an engineer and you look at both sides of the equation and you say, ‘You know, what are the pros and the cons?’ On the other side, here you have somebody who is a conservative, unabashed pro-lifer where as Claire McCaskill is the exact opposite. And you got a real contrast and a simple choice for the people of the state of Missouri. And I think that strong voting record and that record that is the exact opposite of hers — the question is, does that overcome, you know, the question of people that are upset over one word spoken in one day in one sentence. And I think that there is an awful of people that believe in mercy and forgiveness and God’s love. I made a single error in one sentence,” Akin said.

Akin must resign by tomorrow or we are screwed. He would then have to go to court to get off the ballot. Democrats would fight that tooth and nail. Todd Akin must resign by 5:00 PM Tuesday August 21, 2012.

    Just get out Akin. If you can’t expain your pro-life views without tripping over yourself, then we’ll find someone who can.

    ?????Is there another Republican on the ballot and available to run? What about an Independent? If not, keep him!

    Why should his opponent get to play Barack Obama and run unopposed?

  • Kate

    Christian values don’t seem to mean much to Democrats from what I have observed. If Akin wants Missouri to have another 6 years of Claire from hell, then he should stay in the race. If he is thinking of what is best for Missouri, he needs to get out. I am sure he is sincere. However, in politics, it won’t mean much. He’s a Republican, and they are held accountable. If a Dem had said it, we wouldn’t even be having this conversation.

    If Akins does not remove himself it will be due to his crotchety conceit and total lack of understanding of the American electorate. Apparently he still has no clue how much damage he has done and will yet do if he remains in the race.

    I wonder what is worse, making ridiculous statements about rape, or talking about the rights of women to kill the unborn.

    What a back-asswards society we live in! And shills like Chip Bennet keep it that way.

  • Redwine

    Someone should bring up Clinton’s rape of Juanita Broderick. Or Ted Kennedy’s murder of Mary Jo Kopechne.

    Far worse crimes.
    Oh, I forgot. They were Democraps. They rally around their guys no matter what real crimes they commit.

    Does anyone remember when McCaskill insisted that Obama never said that he wanted to fundamentally transform America?

    How stupid was that?

    The Video Claire McCaskill does not
    want you to see.

    This is why im getting so damned sick of celebrity mouth pieces that carry he “voice” of the right.
    Even limbaugh pissed me off this last presidential cycle. Guess limbaugh had to at least once since we are human and cant always agree with each other 100% of the time.

    But this total absolute BS nonsense of throwing constitutional conservatives under the bus in preference to someone who is currently popular because they talk a good game is asinine.

    Hannity, limbaugh, malkin, coulter, palin all did it to Perry when he ran for president and kept the Right juggling from cain to newt to santorum and left us with romney (here is a shocking revelation to you guys who didnt already figure out, each of those twits ARE ALL INSIDER ESTABLISHMENT CRONY’s who vote the same way on the same bills and endorse the same politicians and make the same nominee LEFTIST actions we are all SICK of) because “Perry doesnt talk pretty and stumbles on his words” cost us a constitutional conservative that would have championed tax and welfare and congressional reforms and drastically changed our government for the better.
    Instead now we are hoping to get in a democrat light candidate to replace obamao with and like any good battered wife, telling ourselves “maybe it wont be as bad as all the other times this time”

    Todd Akin Legitimate Rape Comments:
    Proof the Tea Party is Full of Crazy Social Views

    this is what the man said:

    “It seems to me, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really
    [Mr. Akin said of pregnancies from rape.] “If it’s a legitimate rape,
    the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let’s
    assume that maybe that didn’t work or something: I think there should be
    some punishment, but the punishment ought to be of the rapist, and not
    attacking the child.”

    read it “in context”..

    also say a prayer for those who believe
    they are judge, jury, and executioner..

    this is reminding me more and more
    of how the right crucified Cain.. :-(

    Tea Party demographics

    Democrats are members of the Tea Party too at 41%.

    More Blacks Supported Tea Party Movement
    Than Support #Occupy Movement 11/26/11

    btw, everyone needs to listen to the tape, it too
    obviously doesn’t line up with GP’s “headline”.. :-(


  • mr_e_m_t

    BG, the only sin the Right made when it crucified cain was that they did not do so over the issue of how constitutionally ignorant cain is/was and only did so because he had dirt issues.
