Akin's trespasses have been forgiven. Here's our guide to what GOP top brass said then - and how they've changed their tune It turns out that political Siberia, in the Republican party, isn't so far away after all - and you don't have to stay there all that long.

One month after banning Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin from their national convention, Republican leaders are welcoming him back into the fold, his trespasses forgiven, if awkwardly unforgotten. Led by RNC chair Reince Priebus, whose stoical about-face on the issue has been worthy of the royal guard, members of the GOP top brass are gradually stepping forward, one by one, to say that the interests of the nation are now such that it is important to elect Todd Akin to the Senate, all the bad and rather unfortunate things that were said about the man last month notwithstanding.

GOP are fighting back now that people understand media are empty shills for Barack seeking to obfuscate issue. They lied about Romney's tape. They tried blame him for he Libya crisis. NO MORE APOLOGIZING TO MEDIA FOR FALSE ATTACKS.

Akin's words were spun out of context to play on Democrat's emotions. All Barack and his Democrat shills do like Mr Bill here is appeal to hysteria ad emotion rather than sense. Akin said that many try to falsify they were raped to get an abortion. The statistics of pregnancy caused by rape is much lower than what is seen in rates of abortion seen in clinics. He is not saying that rape vicims participated as consensual sex for land sakes!

Bill Clinton whined to Hillary after she lost the primary in 2008 that Obama would have been carrying her bags 4 years ago.

Bill Clinton's mentor on whom he bestowed an honorary award was an avowed KKK and n****r name caller.

Since 1966 James William Fulbright an avid and open KKK Member and segregationist was mentor to who? Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton. My family is from Arkansas and remembers the racist and open bigot of the Fulbright bills and support of racism, segregation, and Klan ties in the south. The Clintons awarded James William Fulbright with a president lifetime achievement award in 1995 and erected a statue in 2002 in honor of a career of racism and citizen intimidation.

Bill Clinton is a snakesoilsmen and could sell a KKK member to blacks today.

ALL PREVIOUS DEMOCRAT PRESIDENTS(LBJ, Truman, etc) OPENLY SOUGHT THE BLACK VOTE, and after they won, they RENEGED ON THEIR PROMISES. Sound familiar? Barack is another one of those, except he wears his skin like a Wolf in Sheep's Clothing. Beware this.

Far more likely is that he is radioactive and will poison those that help him
I would love to see Romney campaign in Missouri with Akin
