Will Akin Withdraw?

So now that Akin has accidentally shared what he thinks about rape, Freepers have been in a bit of a tizzy. While the majority disagree with Akin (you'll see some people defending their man to the last), the main concern is that he may have hurt the chances of Republicans and GOP candidates everywhere.

Unsurprisingly, there's been a lot of discussion over whether he'll withdraw from the race. These are from a few different threads.

He needs to withdraw immediately so we can put someone in there with time to campaign. Aken is toast. No one with an IQ over room temperature would vote for him now.


"Scott Brown calls for Todd Akin to drop out of Senate race"

The dumb slut vote is VERY important in Massachusetts.


"I see the squishy segment of the GOP is the first to call for him to withdraw"

Yeah. Because woman have away to shut down getting pregnant when raped.

Only squishes think this is outrageous.

I live in realville. This guy is toast. And the seat is gone if he stays in to satisfy his ego.


We need this seat to repeal Obamcare.

It’s a freakin’ layup. Any GOPer would be up by 15 points. Yet this weirdo loses it for us.

I could care less about Todd Aikin. I want Claire gone and to take the Senate to get rid of Obamacare. He needs to take a hike.


But Joe (put you back in chains) Biden isn't asked to drop out of the race?! Biden is certifiable and everyone thinks he is so cute!
Akin has made a gaffe that no Republican candidate can ever recover from. Yes, if he was a Democrat he would get a pass. A Democrat can say just about anything and the lamestream media will provide cover. It isn’t fair, but life isn’t fair.

It doesn’t matter how good of a candidate Akin might have been. He is now toast. If he does not step down, then the Democrat will win the seat.

Plus, Akin will pull down conservative candidates all over the country. Every Democrat running for any office in the U.S. will be running ads with Akin as the poster child for the conservative “war on women.”


Hey dude. YOU ARE NOT a resident of Missouri - I am. YOU HAVE NO SAY on who is worthy of office or not in this state. Only those of us that vote here in Missouri do.

We recently had a primary where Mr. Akin easily won. I personnally voted for Steelman because of Palin’s endorsement. However, Akin won the primary, and fairly so. He, of all three candidates, ran NO negative ads. He won based upon his conservative record.

The people of Missouri are sick of McRaskil and this “slip of the tongue” will not keep him from beating her. So, give it a REST. The man is an ARDENT pro-lifer.
He WAS NOT attempting to say rape was OK. He used to WRONG word...as many folks do...when he said “legitimate”...he meant “forcible” rape. I believe the man is very pro-life and doesn’t think there should be rape/incest provisions to allow abortion. Often, the rape/incest provisions are a wedge issue when the reality of the matter is that the pregnancy rate for “forcible rape victums” is much lower than that of normal consensual intercourse. This isn’t rocket science.

The ONLY people calling for his dropping are moderates/liberals. Like I said, I voted for Steelman because of Palin’s endorsement, but have no problem with Akin. Shut up and get off the man’ back. Fools like you are hurting him (someone the is pro-God, pro-Family...FR values) and should get the zot.

KNOCK IT OFF NUMSKULL. Worry about your own state of residence. We WILL eliminat McRascal and do so with Akin. The only other option left, should he resign, would be up to the party establishment. I DO NOT TRUST GOPe types to pick an appropriate candidate. So can the talk.


"This wingnut said that if a woman is raped, her body has a way to prevent pregnancy. WTF!"
Is that not true? I’ve heard for decades that “psychic trauma” may reduce the change a woman has to become pregnant, or for the pregnancy to come to full term.

"Hey dude. YOU ARE NOT a resident of Missouri - I am. YOU HAVE NO SAY on who is worthy of office or not in this state. Only those of us that vote here in Missouri do."
If the rural votes in Missouri were that powerful, how did McCaskill get in before, over an incumbent???   You are right about one thing, I don't vote in Missouri and know little of how they think but I would consider this were I you: McCaskill is a woman, barely. Women voters across the country are not flocking in droves to Romney. Perhaps things are far different in Missouri but when a candidate utters such a blunder, I doubt it goes unnoticed.   In your mind I guess they will overlook his ridicules comment. So, while not strongly supporting Romney will voters support Aken?? I don't see it.   So, don't short yourself out with rhetoric debasing my opinions. I am not the enemy, the dems and Obama are. I just think your support for this guy is myopic.


Any pol who calls on this guy to drop out without similarly demanding Biden’s resignation is a joker.


It would have been so easy for Akin to make his views known while avoiding controversy. He should have said something like “I support life, no matter how conceived."


Either he is on Obama’s payroll or he is really a moron, Akin has shown he is unfit to run for office.

One of the key differences between us and the liberals is they close ranks when one of theirs says or does something stupid. You don’t hear a peep against a leftist offender from the liberals until its clear the story won’t die. The cynic in me says the liberals don’t attack each other until they feel they can gain votes by doing so.

We hold those on our side to a standard. When one of them dips below that standard, like Akin here, we hold them accountable.


Tossing Akin, a good man, will only encourage the next phony rat outrage.   Hussein is weak. McCaskill is joined at the hip with him and they will go down together.   The RSCC said yesterday they will not support Akin. These are the same GOP-E self serving aristocrats who supported Crist over Rubio and Murkowski over Miller.   I have no understanding or compassion for those who flee in the face of a weak and
 dispirited enemy.


  1. I can't wait to see what happens when these assholes lose in November.

    1. You see, their morals, their code, it's a bad joke. Dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. The election will show you. When the chips are down, these...these civilized people, they'll eat each other.
