Well, I'm wondering how this latest statement from Ms. Saul will be received by the far right wing of the far right party?
The party that says it stands for keeping the government out of our personal lives just loves to intrude on the lives of women via their extreme anti-abortion policies. isWill their Limbaugh led voters agree with exempting the victims of rapreate (eylegitimate or not) from the strict antiabortion stance?[/d quote]
This is a great example of the hypocrisy/stupidity....When someone linked to the campaign of the COWH made an idiotic statement about Mrs Romney and the COWH/Campaign distanced after a furor in the media/polls...we were expected to simply move on no questions....Now with these idiotic statements by a republican that should step aside the COWH campaign is immediately attempting to link Romney to these statements even though his campaign immediately disapproved without a poll or furor in the media...This is the media and the campaign of the COWH being in the gutter...You got a problem with Limbaugh...let him express his opinions over the remarks and he's not the party leader and was/is lukewarm towards Romney so that should even make liberals happy...If Limbaugh or anyone else agrees with Rep Todd....then they are also IDIOTS....Plain enough?
In the name of clarity, what Mr. Akin said is an accurate description of the official Republican Party position and it is also an official part of the GOP platform. Further, Congressman Ryan co sponsored a bill using the term forcible rape. Now, however, they are all attempting to distance themselves from these conflicting positions in the hope that women will not understand what these current Republicans actually stand for. The only notable Republican that has come to Mr. Akin's defense is Mike Huckabee who is riding the conservative bandwagon with hopes of running for POTUS in 2016.
