Todd Akin, the Most Controversial
Senate Candidate of 2012,
Was Also the Most Conservative
Member of the House

National Journal, by Brian Resnick

Original Article

Although he may be gone from national politics, Todd Akin, R-Mo., will not soon be forgotten. After making a misguided comment about "legitimate rape" during his campaign for the Senate, he defied party higher-ups (including GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney) and remained in the contest. A Senate seat that seemed likely to be his swung back to Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill, and Democrats nationwide used the incident to advance the idea that Republicans were tone deaf on women´s issues.

There is no room in the big Republican tent for conservatives.

In life there is an old saying "don´t ever cut you nose off to spite your face." This half witted idiot did that. I probably agree with ever vote he made in Congress.

It took a moronic imbecile to not resign. Knowing full well what his action would lead to.

If I was in charge of the Republican Part, no matter where Akin goes. I would run a campaign against him. No matter where, from a greeter at WM to a law office to a part time school bus driver.

That way it would at least put on notice to candidates what will happen when they are plain stupid. Like the witch from Delaware, Akin etc.

Sean Hannity was screaming for his head five minutes after he made his thoughtless remark.

Thanks for nothing Sean.

Sean was first on the bandwagon to destroy Trent Lott too.

With friends like Hannity and Levin we don´t need enemies.

They´re the purity taliban on our side.

#3, Todd Akin made a comment that I bet you can´t even accurately repeat.
BUT boy you all sure did carry the democrats water, destroying a good man and the Left never had to lift a FINGER.
And let´s see......Christine O´Donnell had comments made YEARS ago turned against her, and that bearded moron Coons; who TO THIS DAY refers to himself as a MARXIST was supported by HIS party.
Karl Rove should hang his head in shame for what he did to the Country, and to Ms. O´Donnell.

Yeah, I think I´m with #5. For instance, Sarah Palin is decried by those on the left and many on the right for being ´stupid´. Based on what exactly? In any case, one doesn´t have to be a genius (or even smart), well-educated or important to know and instinctively understand the Constitution and its principles.

I might also point out that Uncle Joe has made SO many ignorant, uniformed and just plain offensive statements that he´s become a national joke and still, his party supports him.

Well, I can quote ole Todd: "If it´s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to shut that whole thing down."

Don´t worry about him. He´s back in Missouri, happily emailing all 12 of his fans about the forthcoming Rapture, while Claire is in Washington helping to dismantle the Republic.

In fact, if the Rapture´s just around the corner, why did he bother running? I mean...what difference does it make now?

Akin isn´t the first and won´t be the last to make a stupid comment. His larger mistake was doubling down.

Way to continue the myth, #8.
"I was told by doctors, that in the cases of legitmate rape(NOT drunken one night stand regret that is so common nowadays ala Dule Lacrosse ad infinitum)that the body may have ways to shut down pregnancy(can´t be true because the word MISCARRIAGE does not exist, right?)

"But that is not my point. We don´t jail a child because the father commits a crime, why are we punishing the Child because the Father committed a crime?"

See, the thrust of the statement was about the CHILD.

Betcha thought Chris Christie was the cat´s meow when he hit the scene, too. And now he is the Left´s choice for the next Presidential Election sacrificial cow.

How´s that working out for ya?

Donors return to Crossroads,

Posted By: tisHimself- 4/15/2014 6:30:37 AM     Post Reply
After a stretch of anemic fundraising, the Karl Rove-backed American Crossroads super PAC raised more cash in March than it did during the previous 14 months combined, according to summaries of campaign filings released Monday. The GOP establishment´s favorite super PAC raised almost $5.2 million last month and had more than $6.3 million in the bank as of March 31, according to the report summary. That cash will be used as the outside group tries to help Republicans pick up the six seats they need to win control of the Senate. American Crossroads has been running ads supporting establishment GOP candidates

Hillary Clinton is Obama´s
George H.W. Bush:
The designated successor
Washington Examiner, by Hugh Hewitt    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 4/14/2014 10:48:03 AM     Post Reply
There are very few genuinely new moments in American politics. Ronald Reagan´s election in 1980 was one of them. President Obama´s triumph in 2008 another. Both were transformative elections, presidencies and men. And both led to parties that struggled for a voice after their defining leader left the scene. George H.W. Bush was a safe and reliable choice for the GOP in 1988: a longtime Washington hand with a golden resume and a seemingly endless and loyal list of supporters and donors. Lots of folks didn´t like him, of course, inside his own party, inside the Democrats, inside the media and outside

´Tax Man´ Obama has
sought 442 tax increases

April 15 is a hard day for many, as their annual federal tax bill comes due. But it could have been worse. According to a new report, President Obama has sought 442 tax increases since taking office, though most have died because of congressional opposition. Having included 93 new taxes in his fiscal 2015 budget, the anti-tax Americans for Tax Reform reviewed his proposals since his 2009 Inauguration to determine just how tax-friendly the president has been. Their conclusion: He´s very friendly. "History tells us what Obama was able to do. This list reminds us of what Obama wanted to do," said Grover

Chances of getting audited
by IRS lowest in years
Associated Press, by Stephen Ohlemacher    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 4/13/2014 8:24:08 AM     Post Reply
Washington - As millions of Americans race to meet Tuesday´s tax deadline, their chances of getting audited are lower than they have been in years. Budget cuts and new responsibilities are straining the Internal Revenue Service´s ability to police tax returns. This year, the IRS will have fewer agents auditing returns than at any time since at least the 1980s. Taxpayer services are suffering, too, with millions of phone calls to the IRS going unanswered. "We keep going after the people who look like the worst of the bad guys," IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said in an interview. "But there are going to be some

IMF urges Congress to back

The U.S. made clear this week that it wants the International Monetary Fund to be the emergency lender for countries like Ukraine, but American lawmakers have persistently refused to give the IMF the additional financial firepower that it has sought. That tension was evident in meetings concluding this weekend of the IMF, the World Bank and representatives of the Group of 20 major economies: Washington´s long delay in ratifying changes to the IMF´s so-called quota system came under fire from finance ministers and other officials of many countries.

Connecticut estate sells for
$120 million, a U.S. record
Chicago Tribune, by Lauren Beale    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 4/13/2014 8:03:25 AM     Post Reply
A Greenwich, Conn., estate called Copper Beech Farm has sold for $120 million, making it the most expensive recorded home sale in the U.S. Priced as high as $190 million, the 50.5-acre estate centers on an 1890s French Renaissance-style home of 13,519 square feet that sits on 4,000 feet of waterfront. The price surpasses private-equity chief Tully Friedman´s $117.5-million sale last year of a nearly 9,000-square-foot home in Woodside, Calif. Named for copper beech trees on the site, the estate in Greenwich was sold by timber tycoon John Rudey. Reached by way of a 1,800-foot-long driveway, the main house features a three-story paneled

After years of being a Republican
activist, I´m done with the GOP
Guardian, by Jimmy LaSalvia    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 4/13/2014 4:29:36 AM     Post Reply
I´ve been a Republican activist all my life. As a volunteer and professional staffer, I held positions in party organizations and campaigns since high school. I was the ultimate partisan team player, even forming GOProud, an organization for gay conservatives and their allies. But I no longer recognize the party I grew up supporting, and I recently announced that I have changed my voter registration to "no party". I left the Republican party because it no longer represents my principles and values. I am a limited government conservative, yet Republicans today like big government, as long as they are in charge

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
