Todd Akin, Paul Ryan and the very real war on women

There are 297 comments on the www.nydailynews.com story from Aug 20, 2012, titled Todd Akin, Paul Ryan and the very real war on women. In it, www.nydailynews.com reports that:

Two words that should never be used together in the same sentence: legitimate and rape.

But that’s the way Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) chose to speak about the sensitive topic that has impacted millions of women in the United States in an interview with a local television station Sunday. In defending his extreme anti-choice position – that a woman who is raped and becomes pregnant should not be permitted to have an abortion, Akin said, “First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

It's the ECONOMY

It's JOBS

It's the cost of GROCERIES

It's the cost of FUEL

It's being DEPENDENT on foreign countries for fuel

Diverting the conversation, per usual.

The left is diverting away from the fact that this president has only made life worse for most people. We are struggling to stay afloat. Therefore, they divert to the so called "war on women". It's nonsense, and alarmism. They need to look at the record of this president, and make an informed decision.

When conservatives get behind Congressman Allen West Liberals call them Racist.
When Conservatives get behind Governor Susan Martinez Liberals call them anti Latino
When Conservatives get behind Eric Cantor liberals say they are ant Semitic.
And when Conservative get behind Michelle Bachman or Sara Palin liberals say they are anti Woman

It's becoming so tiresome hearing his attack ads. He has nothing to say, so attacking his opponents is all he has. I hope this country chooses based on his record. Which is an epic fail.

You are deluded.

Any thinking person, left, right, center; knows it was GW Bush who put us in this boat; and taht the tea-bag Congress has been dragging irts feet to attempt to make President Obamam look bad. And her you are.

There is a war on the American Middle Cl;ass being waged by the puppetmansters of the tea-baggers.

They whip up simple people like you, and appeal to your base interests and hates.

And, to see this AKIN for what he is, a tool and a DUMBO, is true and legitimate.

Worse for whom? Obama didn't allow millions of jobs to leave the country. He didn't allow 12 million illegal immigrants to flood the country and take American jobs. He didn't allow the Wall Street scam that busted the housing market and allowed the equity in our homes to plummet. He didn't START two wars that have financially drained us while making war investors rich beyond their wildest dreams.

You've been duped and if you don't wake up and learn for yourself what's really been going on you'll just be another fool who will put us right back in harm's way.

Can you give us an overview of this president's record?

You should tell that to women; especially the ones who've been "legitimately raped"!

THANK YOU Rep Akin for ensuring the Dems keep the Senate seat in Missouri!!!

Mr_shillforobuttwipe, hasn't obuttwipe run the national debt up to almost 16 TRILLION and still refuses to stop his deficit spending to buy reelection votes from a dumbed down electorate? Hasn't the Tea Party House merely voted against obuttwipe's solicalist/marxist anti American policies? Isn't the obuttwipe trying to bankrupt the coal industry which will make the beleagured Middle Classes energy costs double? Does the obuttwipe really need anyone else to make himself look bad?

it's becoming more an more obvious, based on the comments and actions from these RINO's, that the GOP plan is to sabotage it's party, and weed out the crazy ones during this election cycle.
.
come 2014 that GOP will re-group itself, and rally about TRUE republicans like Jeb Bush and Chris Christie in time for the 2016 election.

If they don't, they're done as a viable political party going forward.

The GOPasaurs simply can't if they give up the women's vote, plus blacks & hispanics & gays & all non-christians.

Not that that's a bad thing......

Look what my research found, dummy. It seems that the communist party USA is suing the democratic party for stealing its platform and rebranding it progressive and claiming it as it's own. The communist party USA has presented documents showing that the democratic party platform of 2010 almost line-for-line reiterates the communist party USA platform of 1963! Socialist, marxist, communist anyone?

Actually reading your post, you are the one who is deluded. Any thinking person realizes we need a change for the better in this country. There is no war on the middle class. When are people going to stop blaming President Bush for everything? The current president has done nothing but take this country backward. It's time for him to live in the private sector. I'm not even close to being a simple person, and I can see the facts very clearly.

What hole in the ground do you live in? There is no war on the middle class? Are you kidding me? Everything that has been done in the last 25 years has helped destroy the middle class and benefit the wealthy. From taxes to offshoring jobs, the middle class is shrinking and struggling.

Stop blaming President Bush? Oh, poor baby. Are his feelings hurt? Well, they should be because that worthless excuse for a president walked out of Washington leaving behind one of the worst messes I've ever seen. He brought us to our knees economically. Do you understand that? HE knew about the scam being run on Street. HE was told it was a disaster waiting to happen; but he looked the other way because there was so much money being made.

So when everything went to hell in 2008, who suffered? Him? Investors? Hardly. They made out like bandits while the rest of us now have homes far below the value they should be. Bush did absolutely NOTHING for the American people except put us in ungodly debt by running two blood-money wars that have drained us dry.

At least Obama has tried. He has tried hard to do things for the people of this country, but he has been thwarted on EVERYTHING he has attempted to do. The obstructionism of the Republican party is nothing short of treason. They've wanted him to fail. That was there mission since day one. They have been uncoooperative and spiteful and hateful and have let the American people suffer so that THEY, and ONLY they, could get into power. They have divided this country so deeply, I can't see us ever becoming whole again. That's a sad fact.

To be so blind as you are is a testament to either sheer ignorance or brainwashing. You see what you want to see.
