I heard him speak last Friday and I plan on supporting /campaigning for him!
He stands for his Christian principles and the US Constitution (as this nation is SHREDDING the Constitution and turning it's back on God as we speak!!)
One reason is: He STOOD - he didn't back down - he was criticized, ridiculed, condemned, threatened, and even his own party turned their back on him - holding back funding to him.
He still stood and shows he has backbone unlike who we have in office now! At first I was surprised that he didn't step down because of all the controversy yet after hearing him speak I have much respect for him. That he stood his ground -went against the flow.
We need more politcians like him. When the kitchen gets too hot - he doesn't tuck tail and run.
Secondly: YES, he misspoke! EVERYONE has done that at one time or other. But not everyone has been interviewed and respond off the cuff as I am sure is harder then most people think it would be!
Altho' "some" are given a pass when they make a gaffe (swept under rug) such as Obama with his 'campaigning in 57 states'/ or saying ‘10,000 people were killed’ by KS tornado - there was exactly 12!/ his ‘slip’ when being interviewed and talking about his “Muslim faith w/ Geo. Stephanopolas (sp?) correcting him “you mean your Christian faith” OR Joe Bidens gaffes---telling wheel chair bound Mo State Sen. Chuck Graham to "stand up" during speech in Columbia/ his “three-letter word: jobs”/much less all of his ‘four letter words'(too many to list all of them besides all the open mic gaffes for both)!! NO – those gaffes are always down played!!
Thirdly: Yes –“legitimate” wrong word – possibly meant ‘violent’ or ‘brutal and regarding rape victim unable to get pregnant....could have recalled 1999 medical journey, such as: http://trenchpress.com/...
I am sure there is much more behind this – then people want to believe – the Dems esp. Claire esp. saw him as a threat?? Lord only knows anymore – what is behind politics. More often then not-$$.
So – therefore – IMHO –(like it or lump it)
I think Todd Akin should be our next US Senator for MO. Time for Claire to go –basically she has implied that SHE knows what is BEST for us uneducated fools!!
as she told her constituents (PB town hall meeting) to 'don't make me use my Mommy voice”!
and as for the GOP is being petitioned to reengage his funding or they will not be seeing any financial backing here.
So much for tolerance / empathy! Conservative get no passes!
Todd Akin for Senate!!
