That's right, he is standing by what his says because it is how he believes. He has a right to say it. How many times has people tried to cover up what Obama believes in or has said? But sense this is a republican, that makes a hell of a difference. He still has my vote.

He is one sick duck. He is a laughing stock of evil and he will make all hoosier look stupid.

I find it amazing that we allow people who believe in fairytales to run our country. No wonder our nation is sliding behind the rest of the developed world in education.

You can also start reaching out to voters right now. Make 13 calls right now -- one for each day we've got left.

If you've tried out the call tool, you already know how easy it is to use.

If you haven't yet, you're missing out. It's simple and fun, and you don't have to worry if you're not sure what to say -- there's a great script to follow.

And if folks like you take advantage of it, the call tool will play a key role in winning this election.

These last two weeks are all about turning voters out to the polls, plain and simple, and the call tool is your way to do that right from the couch or kitchen table. With a bunch of key states already voting -- including yours -- there's literally no time to waste.

So sign up for a call shift to get out the vote for President Obama:

Or, start making those 13 -- or more -- calls right now:

Thanks for doing this -- I'm not kidding when I say every single conversation matters.

I am making changes now just in case Obama wins. Sold most of my stock and let the money sit. If he wins, everything I have read is that the stock market will go south. Very far south. If Romney wins we are only putting it off for a couple of years. Don't believe it? Just wait and see.

Only a woman-hating MISOGYNIST like Mourdock would say something as disgusting as that to begin with. Since Romney refused to drop this idiot, he can't honestly claim to be a "moderate" anymore.

I'll VOTE FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA on November 6th, no matter how many right-wing kooks like you whine about it.

Mourdock has trouble distinguishing his job from his religion and that is dangerous, especially for a politician. Do I think he condones rape? Absolutely not, but I do believe he said something very stupid and it will probably cost him the election. We are judged on our actual words and actions, not what we "meant" to say or do.

I think we have the right to demand of our politicins that their policies be governed by reason, not by some scizophrenic messages from "God".

One believeing in fairytales would believe in a blue collar biochemist. When those that believed in fairytales ran the country, at least we had some common moral ground. If we are falling behind the rest of the cilivized world, it is because of failure of education to educate.

Misogynist, only a word a Califorinian would use. People whom understand what he was trying to say will still vote for him, and it is certainly your right to vote for, in my opinion, the loser of your choice.

People that are voted into office, in theory, represent the people that elect them. They are still people that have beliefs, and standards good, or bad. He was stating his belief, I do not believe he said he heard from God.

I think plenty of women all across the country would call Mourdock a misogynist, because his BACKWARD statements about women and rape have exposed him as such. He's probably lost a lot of votes from women, and he has only HIMSELF to blame.

You can call Democrats "losers" all you want, it makes no difference to me. I'll still VOTE FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA on November 6th.
