J. jones says:
It seems that everyone on the right is running like scared cats from Todd Akin these days because of the furor his rape statements have caused. He believes that if a woman is raped and she gets pregnant, then she must have liked it. Ryan claims that Akin's statements are outrageous, but the vice presidential nominee on the ticket with Romney actually voted numerous times with Akin on anti-abortion bills, including one especially controversial one that outlawed abortion and included no exceptions for rape or incest. Romney has applauded such bills, putting him squarely in the Todd Akin camp. Consider:

"But according to the chairman of the New Jersey Democratic Party, Ryan, a Wisconsin congressman, and Missouri Rep. Todd Akin co-sponsored legislation limiting federal funding for abortions to victims of "forcible rape."

"While Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan rushed to throw Congressman Akin under the bus following his repugnant comments, we know that in reality, Republicans share many of Akin's most offensive views on the issue of choice," John Wisniewski, a state assemblyman, said in a news release on Tuesday.

"Ryan co-sponsored legislation with Akin to limit federal funding for abortion to victims of 'forcible rape' - as if there is any other kind of rape?"

anti-women, anti lgbt, and basing the economy on vulture capitalism values and ruling by fear. sounds like the plot for the movie, v for vendetta.

A vote for Romney/Ryan is a vote for the American version of the Taliban!

Unfortunately it is, until Akin is expelled from the GOP and the GOP platform on this topic changed.

A vote for Obama is a vote for this guy:

DULUTH, Minn. (KMSP) -

Duluth Rep. Kerry Gauthier (D), the state lawmaker caught having a sexual encounter at a rest stop with a 17-year-old boy, began Wednesday saying he will still seek re-election -- but by Wednesday afternoon, he had changed his mind.

Lisa E. says:
--"A vote for Obama is a vote for this guy"--

As reprehensible as that is -- how is that in any way the same as the fact that Ryan and Akin co-sponsored a bill together to redefine rape -- "forcible rape" -- to make it harder for women to get abortions?

And that Ryan co-sponsored the "Personhood Amendment" which would outlaw among other things certain forms of birth control?

Obama is responsible for Kerry Gauthier how?

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 22, 2012 5:01:18 PM PDT
According to Faux Nooz, the president should have used his psychic powers to sense that Gauthier was going to have sex with this guy, and called him up to forbid it. In fact, he should have personally flown in Air Force One over there and prevented it from happening.

Since he didn't do that, it is all Obama's fault...or something.

Faux Nooz logic at work!

Why, did Obama engage in the heinous act with Gauthier? You make no sense.
Ryan, on the other hand, cosponsored the extreme legislation restricting the rights of women WITH Akin.

J. jones says:
yes, kilgore. Republicans have been saying things like what Akin said, for years. They campaigned on such rhetoric in 2010. It is backfiring now.

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 23, 2012 6:37:10 PM PDT
It's certainly got the religious right upset that the republicans threw Akin under the bus like they did.

I kinda think all of their election hopes are much dimmer tonight than they have been for some time...

Kilgore says:
you could add the demise of the u.s. environment. did you hear romney's energy proposals today? i found it odd he stated oil companies from canada and mexico will supply the u.s. with oil. uh, is he going to pass a law to force them to sell to u.s. only? he is going to make laws for international corporations? they sell to the highest bidder, china.. he knows all this but lies anyway. but in the meantime also discussing fracking in the u.s. never mind the chance of tainting water sources as unusable. the processs takes millions of gallons of fresh water in the fracking process. when fresh water is a natural resource that will be fought for in the the next century... this is all about a few business raping the land and leaving it unusable for a couple more bank accounts for a certain few. how obscene.

Thomas Paine says:
Or maybe it could be about creating an energy independent country that creates new jobs that will allow this country to prosper. You know, put people back to work. Increase the middle class, provide a future. Maybe achieve the American dream. Just because you like people being dependent upon the government doesn't mean the rest of the country does....

he stated canada and mexico would provide us oil. how do you legislate this deal? these multi national companies sell to the highest bidder and have no country ties only profit. his whole statement was hogwash. and he is suppose to be the business genius? he is a liar. china will simply outbid and get the oil as they are, as we speak, with oil coming from north america... nothing changes with this fool.

Jones: "we know that in reality, Republicans share many of Akin's most offensive views on the issue of choice"

While liberals share many of Obama and Biden's most offensive views on the issue of abortion! I was absolutely appalled to hear that New Jersey allows for abortion clear up to the last minutes before birth.

So if the mother didn't want the baby before it was born, she could have the doctor abort the baby? How selfish and barbaric is that!!!

To me that's murder! That's what I call EXTREME VIEWS!

By the way, it's call abortion -- not choice!

OK, a vote for Romney/Ryan is a vote for Akin. I don't like Akin, but I accept what you say.

Now, a vote for Obizzle/Biden is a vote for More of the Same. No Jobs, Lowered Standard of Living, and Even Larger Debt

America will take Romney/Ryan/Akin any day over the nightmare of Obizzle/Biden for four more years.

C. Andersen says:
Akin may have been wrong about his definition of rape, but he absolutely understands the value of life! Any type of rape is an extremely heinous crime, but murder, especially taking an innocent life is about as bad as it gets.

I would still vote for Akin. I am not a single issue voter, and I do know where he's coming from!

what utter nonsense.

a vote for oscumbag is a vote for killing live, born babies who survive botched abortions. that's what this putrid p.o.s. voted for as an Illinois senator.

Posted on Aug 24, 2012 1:48:37 AM PDT
"Barack Obama could favor denying legal protection to babies after they are born and the press wouldn't bat an eyelash. In fact, he did.

In the Illinois legislature, he opposed the "Born-Alive Infants Protection Act" three times. The bill recognized babies born after attempted abortions as persons and required doctors to give them care. About a year after his final vote against the bill, Obama gave his famous 2004 Democratic Convention speech extolling post-partisan moderation.

But he couldn't bring himself to protect infants brutalized and utterly alone in some medical facility. Some moderation. The federal version of the bill that he opposed in Illinois passed the U.S. Senate unanimously. Some post-partisanship.

President Obama is an extremist on abortion. He has never supported any meaningful restriction on it, and never will."

J. jones says:
C. Andersen, you said, " I was absolutely appalled to hear that New Jersey allows for abortion clear up to the last minutes before birth."

J.jones says: And you believed it? You didn't challenge that information? C. Andersen, you just took it as gospel truth? You didn't say you did research or studied and found documented evidence. You said you "heard".
Typical.

J. jones says:
C. Andersen, my personal view, is that I am against abortion. I don't feel I have the right to tell a mother to choose, especially if raped. But that is not my problem with Paul Ryan/Todd Akin. It is telling people that they (Ryan/Akin), have the power to define who is raped. Is Ryan a woman? Is Romney? Akin? If I were a woman, I would have a problem with them setting policy, passing bills, and implementing laws that dictate to me what they want me to do with my body.

Obama/Biden have worked tirelessly for the middle class
They are ahead with women, Latinos, Blacks, and closing the gap with men and senior citizens.
