Wasserman Schultz Ties Paul Ryan to Todd Akin …Update: Cook Political Moves MO Senate to Likely Democrat

That didn’t take long…
DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz tried to tie Paul Ryan to Todd Akin.
Daily Kos reported:

CNN reports that Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz has pointed out the similarities in Reps. Paul Ryan’s and Todd Akin’s positions on abortion.

The issue is particularly sensitive for Ryan, a devout Catholic and staunch anti-abortion politician who has previously expressed opposition to abortion in all cases except when the life of the mother is endangered.

A Romney-Ryan campaign official, speaking on condition of not being identified, confirmed to CNN that Ryan’s personal view opposes abortion in the case of rape. The campaign official said Ryan’s stance differed with Romney’s view, which was described in the statement Sunday and is the formal position of the GOP presidential ticket.
Democrats immediately challenged the Romney-Ryan team on the issue.

“They’ve been trying to distance themselves from it — but Congressman Ryan has already partnered with Akin on a whole host of issues that restrict women’s ability to make their own health care decisions,” said a statement by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee. “This kind of ‘leadership’ is dangerously wrong for women.”

It’s just beginning.

UPDATE: Cook Political moves Missouri Senate to likely Democrat.
“Republican U.S. Rep. Todd Akin’s comment over the weekend about “legitimate rape” has rendered him unelectable in his bid against Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill. As such, the race moves to likely Democrat.”

    “Congressman Ryan has already partnered with Akin on a whole host of issues that restrict women’s ability to make their own health care decisions,” said a statement by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.”

    TOO flucking funny, in light of ObamaCare’s impositions on EVERYBODY’s health-care choices.

    To say NOTHING of their private medical records.

    So Obama is tied to white and jew haters like LooWee Farakhan , Zulu , muslim brotherhood and hamas , right ?

    But taking money from Planned Parenthood, an organization that hides rapes and fails to report rapes and helps rapists destroy the evidence of the rape is just fine with Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee.

    She is slithering snake in the grass. Unprofessional little hack.

    Does this mean that we can tie Joe Biden to the Minnesota Congressman that met with a 17 year old boy at a rest stop for sex?

    It’s not over yet folks,

    If Akin does not drop out by today’s deadline, he has until September 25th to withdraw via a court order. In that scenario, State law would require Akin to cover any costs for reprinting ballots, and the GOP central committee would select a substitute candidate.

    They have 28 days from a candidate’s withdrawal to name a replacement, so if Akin drops out today, Missouri Republicans would need to select a new candidate by September 18. It’s almost certain they would probably try to name someone much sooner, and in fact I’d be surprised if they haven’t already quietly done so in the expectation Akin may yield to nationwide calls from Republicans and pull out.

    Once again (pointing out) we have a President that has voted to let American babies die on store room shelfs,
    not once but over and over, in order to preserve the alleged right of women to kill inconvenient kids. Candidate Akin has never done so. IMO, Candidate Akin has the better position.

    I haven’t heard of such DOWN RIGHT HATE ever, like this election. I really worries all of us.

    The democrats have said we will kill the elderly, throw the over a cliff, that the Republican candidate is a felon. Now, they are putting Ryan in the same category as Akin.

    This small town boy, picks himself up by the boot straps and becomes a U.S. Congressman.

    A real family man and the thought that this little hair brain no body can speak in such harsh and demeaning language to Ryan’s character, well, if they were to win, can you only imagine what horror awaits us all.

    Looks like Governor Sarah Palin gets to say “I TOLD YOU SO” –

    Check out the headline below from the Hill dated Aug. 12. Governor Sarah Palin endorsed Sarah Steelman in Missouri and not Todd Akin:

    (In light of the very weird political drama unfolding right now in Missouri, Governor Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Sarah Steelman sure seems politically wiser than the endorsement of Rep Todd Akin! I don’t know anything about Steelman – I did not follow the race closely – but I can’t imagine anyone could be a more difficult candidate for the Republican Party than Akin. He potentially hands the race to his political opponent Sen Claire McCaskill plus supplies the Democratic Party with more ammo supporting their assertion that there is a Republican war on women.

    And now do you Akin defenders get what some of us were saying?
    Why Akin had to go?
    Why other candidates are coming out and denouncing his comments?

    Because it’s not about Akin. It’s really not even about the Missouri Senate seat.

    It’s about the Left – taking one, stupid statement from one of our candidates – and tying it around the neck of every other Republican running for office.

    That’s why.

  • Ace

    It’s the GOP’s fault for letting this scumbag get on the ticket in a crucial senate race.
    They deserve what they get.
    If you think the GOP is ever going to get us out of this current disaster—you’re crazy.
    It’s going to take a generation to fix this. And a new party.

    I am 64. The country I grew up in is fading a little more every day. Soon, there will be nothing left of the nation I loved.

    The Democrats and the RINOs are destroyers.

    police say

    oh i forgot, some stupid evil dumb old white man is sticking
    up for the unborn and that simply can not be TOLERATED!!


  • Carbon Pootprint

    OK so all democrats troll rest stops looking for gay sex from teenagers and their parents are either in prison for tax evasion or on their way to prison for funneling “green money” to family members. Oh and they’re all America hating fascist black Marxist too bahahahahaha

    The biggest message the GOP should drive home on ” a woman’s right to make her own health decisions” is to allow women – AND NOT GOVERNMENT – to make those decisions.

    Government should have no role whatsoever in women’s control over their bodies……government is not moral or good enough……this kind of decision to give birth or not should be guided by the churches and parenting institutions in our nation.

    You would not know whether I am pro-abortion or anti-abortion or pro-contraceptives or anti-contraceptives from what I have said.

    I promise you I am Pro-Choice – A woman’s right to choose on her own without any creepy old politicians and government bureaucrats making choices for her.

    Today’s Democrats are actually the greatest Anti-Choice party in America’s history – they need to back off or they will find out what choice really means in November.
