    Limbaugh rushes to AKINS defense

    by Joe Kovacs

    PALM BEACH, Fla. – While many top Republicans are urging Rep. Todd Akin of Missouri to exit the race for the U.S. Senate after controversial remarks about rape, the six-term GOP House member is getting some support from the nation’s best-known conservative, Rush Limbaugh.

    “When everybody seems to be uttering, voicing, doing the same thing, that’s when I put on the brakes and say, ‘Do I want to join this mob?’” Limbaugh said on his radio show this afternoon, referring to the Republican calls for Akin to quit.
    Akin sparked a firestorm with comments Sunday saying pregnancy could be prevented in the case of “legitimate rape” because “the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

    “That’s just absurd. It’s not intelligent,” Limbaugh said. “On the one hand, here we have a guy in glorious ineptitude attempting to defend every conceived life. … On the other hand we got a political party (the Democratic Party) who’s gonna have a former president actually accused of rape introduce and keynote Barack Obama. And that’s fine. This is why I am hesitant to join the mob that says throw this guy out. We have a circular firing squad.”

    Limbaugh was referring to former President Bill Clinton who is slated to play a starring role at the upcoming Democratic convention.

    “Their keynote speaker was accused of rape, and they love the guy. He was held in contempt of court. He was disbarred for several years. He has had numerous extramarital affairs. You talk about somebody who has less than a respectful view of women? And this is the keynote at the Democrat National Convention. And the Democrats love the guy.”

    Limbaugh suggested what Akin was trying to say was something very simple.

    “I don’t think abortion should even happen in rape. That’s what he was trying to say. Let’s just strip away all the other stuff,” Limbaugh explained. “There are a group of pro-lifers who profoundly believe that, and they talk to each other, and they try to come up with ways of persuading other people to agree with them on this. Because their view is, it’s not the baby’s fault.”

    While admitting Akin’s remark was “stupid,” Limbaugh noted, “How about the economic policies running this country? They are stupid! They are indefensible, and they are stupid. The economic policies led by this administration, they are indefensible and they are stupid, and they are causing real damage and real harm to real people.”

    Akin also received support from TV star-turned-activist Kirk Cameron.
    “He clearly is a pro-life advocate, and for that, I respect him,” Cameron said on CNN’s “Starting Point.” “He said that he misspoke and that he misphrased something and that he apologized.”

    “I’m the kind of person that believes that I would like to be evaluated by my entire career and my entire life, not two words that I would misspeak and then later apologize for,” he added. “So he’s in a tough spot.”

    Meanwhile, a defiant Akin said today he’ll stay in the Missouri Senate race against Democrat Claire McCaskill.

    “Let me just make it clear … that we are not getting out of this race. We are in this race for the long haul and we are going to win it,” he told radio host Dana Loesch.

    On Mike Huckabee’s radio program, Akin added, “I said one word in one sentence on one day, and everything changed … I believe the defense of the unborn and a deep respect for life. …They are not things to run away from.”

    When was Bill Clinton accused of rape? Marital infidelity, perhaps, but rape? Are the Republicans this desperate crazy to be saying Bill Clinton is guilty of rape? And don't say it's just Rush Limbaugh... the Republicans and Limbaugh are joined at the hip, one and the same, the one the spokesperson for the other.

    Or else Republicans would repudiate Limbaugh. Don't hold your breath. Remember the last time any of them dared to oppose him? They all apologized.

    Dems accuse Romney of being a felon...causing a woman to die of cancer...a tax cheat...So Rush has some accusations of his own. Shocker! He speaks for himself, but regardless, clearly it's war out there when it comes to American politics.

    " Romney of being a felon...causing a woman to die of cancer...a tax cheat "

    ROMNEY'S FELONY will be hard to prove. He's wisely not releasing his tax returns.

    "The answer may well be that 2009 was the year that the Treasury Department decided to offer an amnesty from prosecution for tax fraud to any of the tens of thousands of millionaires who were known or suspected to have illegally hidden income abroad in the Cayman Islands or in Swiss banks -- a felony, but one that people thought they'd never be caught at.

    MITT & MURDER: Actually that's quoting the hysterical Republican reaction to the story of Mitt's business practices costing a woman her insurance.

    *But as MITT'S Spokesperson Andrea Saul said "THIS WOULD NEVER HAVE HAPPENED IF THE CANCER VICTIM HAD LIVED IN MASSACHUSETTS .... where she could have enjoyed ROMNEYCARE !


    MITT IS A TAX CHEAT! Well, YES!

    Translation:

    “When everybody seems to be uttering, voicing, doing the same thing, that’s when I realize there’s some money to be made, ‘Do I want to join this mob? Hell, yes!’” Limbaugh said on his radio show this afternoon, referring to the Republican calls for Akin to quit.

    Akin sparked a firestorm with comments Sunday saying pregnancy could be prevented in the case of “legitimate rape” because “the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

    “That’s just wonderful. It’s not an opportunity to be missed,” Limbaugh said. “On the one hand, here we have a guy in glorious ineptitude attempting to delude everyone who listens in … On the other hand we got a political party (the Democratic Party) who’s gonna have a former president actually accused of rape introduce and keynote Barack Obama. And that’s fine. If you’re accused, you’re guilty. that's the Conservative platform. This is why I am jumping on this bandwagon to throw this guy out. We have a circular logic.”

    1st of all, If we can't talk about Bush because he's not President, then why the hell are Republicans talking about Bill Clinton?!

    2nd of all, the last person Republicans want to remind America of is Bill Clinton.
