Todd Akin isn’t going anywhere

2 posts / 0 new

Yesterday’s deadline for the Missouri Republican Congressman to drop out of the state’s Senate race came and went last night – with Akin refusing to drop out of the race. In a statement, Akin asked supporters to stand by him while the liberal media tries to force him out of the race.

Of course, the reality is the so-called liberal media desperately wants Akin to stay in the race. It’s the Republican establishment that wants him out since he was irresponsible enough to articulate in words what the entire Republican Party is actually thinking when it comes to women, rape, and abortion.

So well done Congressman Akin for making sure this issue doesn’t go away anytime soon.
