Not really. Romney and other Republicans should have demanded that Akin withdraw from the race, and forced him out by any means necessary if he refused. Just as Torricelli was forced out in New Jersey at the last minute.
Republicans were afraid of offending the religious nuts who really believe that stuff.
There you go again...you still think there are more "religious nuts" on our side of the fence who'd agree with such an outlandish comment made by Akin even when he immediately retracted it and clarified it than the overwhelming number of rational people who distanced themselves from it and condemned him for saying it.

And you can't force anyone to do anything. Calls for him to step down were heard loud and clear but you must have been in the shower.

Can't we find some middle ground? I will concede that Joe Biden is an idiot if you agree that Obama deliberately lied to America on his healthcare plan.

Galt knows that abortion laws can only be changed by the Supreme Court and that it is pointless to sacrifice elections pursuing a meaningless goal.
Galt would not vote for any candidate who supported outlawing abortion under all circumstances.
Galt hates the term "pro-life"...everybo dy is "pro-life", regardless of their views on abortion.
Galt making sense for a change. Homer agrees with Galt. Peppy also agrees with Galt. Carol vehemently disagrees with Galt. Peppy also agrees with Carol.

Go back on this thread to the election days. All the kool aid drinking Obama supporters were adamant that Obamacare was exactly what Obama promised. Fools. They won't be happy until the transition to nanny state is complete. Personal responsibility and personal accomplishment will have no practical value.
I disagree.

It's only mindless gibberish to someone who can't come up with a sensible response.
Galt acts like all conservatives think exactly alike on the issue of abortion and all liberals think exactly alike on the same issue.
So do you agree with Galt or is this simple question mindless gibberish?
Once again babe, math betrays you.

Galt believes that high voltage, anti abortion Christians and certain other single issue fools such as yourself have damaged the GOP.

Galt's correct.

So come to our side, we have the truth, we know what is happening. We are AWAKE.

If the Republicans hadn't adamantly refused to work with the Democrats on the healthcare reform bill we may have had a better bill and smoother implementation.
Bah! Every reasonable idea, like tort reform, was dismissed without discussion. Obama has never compromised on anything except his willingness to change the meaning of his campaign promises. Good leaders like Reagan and Clinton crossed over to listen and compromise. President Smug is unwilling to do either, instead he invites others over for a pompous lecture.

<quoted text>Galt, if you lose these religious nuts on the right like Lois/Carol there will be only a handful of Republicans left.
Brace yourself.

A 2011 Gallup poll said 92% of Americans professed a belief in God.
Registered Republicans don't make up 92% of the population.

That means a lot of them are on your side of the fence.

I know that was a hard pill to swallow, so are you okay?

I live inland a good ways, you think your boat can handle that?

If it can, sure, I would love to. We have a lot of catching up to do. BTW, you can have the pumpkin back I borrowed off your porch, I don't need it anymore.

Galt's correct.
And the growing number on your side of the fence who think abortion on demand at any stage of pregnancy doesn't damage your party's politics?

Even killing born alive babies?
