Just because two men believe so strongly in the sanctity of life that they misspoke in the case of rape doesn't merit the tizzy you libs have worked yourselves into.

How many democrats ran for office who believe in partial birth abortion and killing a baby as it's coming out of the birth canal?

If you weren't such a lying as shole, you would admit I said the vast majority of stock owned by the middle class is in 401k type programs.
You're still wrong with respect to individual stocks.

Most 401(k) assets are in mutual funds. Most individual stock holdings by the middle class are outside retirement plans.

Anybody who has the "vast majority" of their savings in retirement plans lacks the proper balance in their investment program.

He appeared in ads after the statements were made.
His campaign supported him.
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-34222_162-5753943...
From the same article you posted:

"Gov. Romney disagrees with Richard Mourdock, and Mr. Mourdock's comments do not reflect Gov. Romney's views. We disagree on the policy regarding exceptions for rape and incest but still support him," said Romney spokesperson Andrea Saul.

MSNBC wrote an article with the headline:

"Mitt sprints away from Mourdock after pregnancy-rape remark"

http://tv.msnbc.com/2012/10/24/mitt-romney-sp...

A segment from that article read:

"Republican Presidential Candidate, Mitt Romney, recently cut a RARE ad for the Indiana Republican (Mourdock) endorsing his candidacy which begins airing this week in the Hoosier State."

So, apparently, if Romney was "sprinting", the ad was made before the comment.

Those kind of details get lost in the propaganda shuffle by The Obama Team Cheerleaders.

The percentage of americans who own stock outside of 401k is something like 46%. That includes the "1%". It used to be in the 50%+ range before the recession.

Romney had problems with Ryan's stand on abortion?
Rape candidates for the senate were provided by the tea party.
Libertarians in your party,eg: John Galt, may not support your party platform on abortion?
Romney was suppose to carry Florida according to Ras'msn and other polls as well as the assurances of the commentators on fox news.
Your party may be running out of old while men?

Mourdock attempted to clarify his comments in a press conference Wednesday morning, emphasizing "regret" that his comments were misinterpreted but standing by the essential nature of his remarks:

"I said life is precious. I believe life is precious. I believe rape is a brutal act. It is something that I abhor. And that anyone could come away with any meaning other than what I said is regrettable and for that I apologize," he told reporters. "Anyone who goes to the video tape and views that understands fully what I meant."

He simply misspoke. It was unfortunate that he did. But he did.
Calling him a "rape candidate", however, is so...well...liberal of you.

He won swing state voters because of the way he "handled" Hurricane Sandy...according to CNN.
He won because Romney decided to play it safe when, just the day before Sandy made landfall, Gallup and Rasmussen had him ahead by a 5 and 4 point lead respectively. Source posted last night.
He won because the liberal machine had a methodical method of getting democrat voters to the polls.
He won because too many people had been brainwashed with too many negative Obama campaign ads.
He won because enough voters had reservations about Romney's Mormonism.
Basically, Obama won because he's the luckiest person on the planet.
All polls showed a signficant majority believed we were on the wrong track right up until the day of the election.
Do you listen to the nonsense you spew from your ass, up your digestive track, & out your mouth? Basically you just admitted that romney had no chance at all. You just quoted all right wing correspondences. I told all who were putting faith in polls taken by small portions of americas 360 million plus people. Nobody I know were polled so you can't tell who will likely vote. Ya'll (right wing nuts) were so confident before election day. Now all ya'll do is make up excuses as to why the person you were backing was dominated sop thoroughly! DESTROYED! Ya'll call Obama the boy messiah, but he's more like a prophet how he predicted ya'll would cling to your guns in protest of his victory. Everything you stated may be factors of his victory, but it wasn't the deciding factor. Ya'll simply underestimated the power of his supporting cast (black power)! Ya'll also underestimated folks sense of logic. Ya'll thought you could blame the president for bush's failures, NOT! We lived through those years & seen what he seemingly did on purpose to this country. YOU GUYS WERE FOOLED! Give credit where credit is due& stop making excuses for your representatives short comings.
& GET OF THAT CONSTITUTION CRAP. THERE'S NO WAY POSSIBLE A BUNCH OF OLD WHITE MEN CAN INSTRUCT PEOPLE HOW TIP LIVED OVER 200YRS DOWN THE ROAD. THEIR BACKGROUNDS AS SLAVE OWNERS ALONE SHOULD DISCREDIT THEIR IDEOLOGY & ABILITY TO WRITE THE CONSTITUTION THROUGH THE EYES OF EQUALITY & FAIRNESS WITHOUT BIAS! IMPOSSIBLE!

If that's really your position on the issue then you've been misled by the right-wing propaganda mill.

Sorry 'bout that but I warn y'all all the time to use a skeptical ear when you hear noise from the right.

Why can't you have a discussion about abortion without implying all a abortions are partial birth abortions typically utilized in later stages of pregnancies & therefore performed for medical reasons.
