Romney/Ryan Ad: Our Generation's Time

Made from footage of Paul Ryan's campaign appearance in Florida yesterday.

From the looks of that crowd, they're not falling for Mediscare. But go on Dems. Please do campaign all across the country on PolitiSpin's 2011 Lie of the Year.

Here's the full speech if you haven't seen it:

Watched it on Fox, it was quite a good performance. The guy who introduced him was very good also.

2 Brilliant strategy. How could the Republicans want to "end Medicare as we know it" if their own parents rely on the program? Next the progs will accuse them of wanting to kill their own parents.

Posted by: NPR at August 19, 2012 04:12 PM (FcR7P)

12 Paul Ryan will secretly fund his mother's healthcare expenses with a Koch Bros bank account, after the Rethuglicans kill Medicare. In fact, as we speak, the evil GOP is setting up a private network of nursing homes where they will send their parents to. Think about it. How easy that would be for the 1%.

17 Little personal sidenote about Paul Ryan and his mom. About 7 years or so ago, when my son was on his first tour of duty in Iraq, an issue came up regarding his deployment. I called Paul Ryan's office and they took my number. About 10 minutes later I got a callback from Paul on his cell phone. He apologized to me for not taking my initial call, and proceeded to answer my question. When ringing off, he again apologized for "the delay" (really? 10 minutes?) but said he was on route back from visiting his mom in the hospital. otherwise he would have been more prompt.



??? 10 minutes. Mom in hospital. Apologizing.

18 Someone on earlier thread asked if Heverd Yerd was within Constitution's range. I believe 24s have an effective range of about 2 miles. So if Harvard is within a mile and a half or so of the Charles, it's "load with round shot!"

Or, at closer range, you could get into some of the more exotic shot: such as chain, or bar, both used to dismast the enemy.

At much closer range (almost contact). the "murdering guns" could be used to clear the Yard.

24 Dr. Fish -

What I want to know is, if Mrs. Biden is a doctor of education, and Mr. Biden is Vice President of the United States, why is it that with their combined incomes they cannot manage to give more than $300 bucks a year to charity? Heck, if you drop a ten dollar bill in the collection plate every Sunday, it comes out to more than that.

48 Here's what he is quoted as saying:

If an abortion can be considered in the case of a tubal pregnancy [where the mother's life is threatened],” said host Charles Jaco, “what about in the case of rape? Should it be legal or not?”

“First of all, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really
rare,” Akin said about pregnancy from rape. “If it’s a legitimate rape,
the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

Akin continued on to suggest that when those protections fail,
abortion shouldn’t be an available course of action for the victim.

Posted by: mama winger in Paul Ryan's districtLook just say the courts have already decided the legality of abortion.

Hey Moron,
Pay Attention:1) Palin visited the Villages after Her incredible Convention Speech in
the middle of the full on campaign season. Paul Ryan visited before the
convention has even taken place and before full on convention season.

2)
Palin is a remarkable speaker. She knew how to connect with the crowd
unlike anyone since well...2008 Barack Obama, and by the time she
visited the Villages, her reputation preceded her.
3) Paul Ryan is no
Palin, he is not a motivational presence, he is a policy wonk.
4) Paul
Ryan does not have boobs, although if you like moobs, he has a damn good
looking pair from what could be seen under that t-shirt.
5) The Media
was in full on demonization mode on Palin by the time she came to the
Villages, and the conservative base was in full on defend palin mode by
then. That hasn't started with Ryan yet.

Lastly) A person like Palin
comes along once in a generation if you are lucky. You can be a Rhino
shit and claim what every you want, Fuck just slap a D on your forehead
while doing it, but she transformed the race, and since then has been
fighting tirelessly for conservative values. The fact that so many weak
minded shits on the R side of the aisle joined their D fuckbuddies and
Cocktail circuit dinner pals in trashing her (I am talking to you Noonon
you heinous old prune and you Frum you corksoaking rhino) does not
change the fact that she was the only reason many people voted for that
limp dicked whimp who wanted us to fight with him when he had already
surrendered and who birthed that blight upon humanity twinkie eating tub
of lard that thinks she actually has something worth contributing to
the political dialogue - further proof that peroxide kills brain
cells...And she was imminently more qualified than Mclame Bidez or
Obamao to run this country...but i am glad the ticket lost...America
needed to get a real good taste of hope and change so we could hopefully
correct course for another 20 years after ala Reagan.
...just sayin...

92 I knew Akin was very socially conervative and I'm sure many independents in MOwho cannot stand Claire were willing to overlook it, but the idiot just opened his mouth and exposed all. Looks like MO's going to stay with Claire. No wonder she cut ads for him, she knew he was the easiest one to beat. The man cannot even keep his damn mouth shut until November. All he had to do was hammer on economy, jobs, ObamaCare, but nooo, couldn't just focus on that. Stupid. I'm so pissed, the idiot woman Claire is beatable, and the repubs pick the most beatable one of the 3. Sharron Angle all over again.

Yes but that's because Obama cares so much, he's trying to connect with his voters on a more personal level.

Those big rallys are just stifling his desire to sit down and understand voters on a personal level.

In fact, I've heard that Obama is going to start making friends with folks and take them bowling. Beer and pizza is on him.

99 Paul Ryan is no
Palin, he is not a motivational presence, he is a policy wonk.


They're not mutually exclusive. From what I've seen, he's probably capable of growing into a persuasive public speaker. He's not afraid of crowds or a stage, and his voice characteristics are suited to public speaking, and he doesn't need a prompter.

If you're a policy wonk, then you're comfortable presenting difficult shit using analogies, simplifications, visual aids, etc because you have to develop that skill...because most of the time, you're presenting to, and trying to persuade imbeciles. As dim as the American public can be sometimes, they're often quicker to grasp essentials than the dolts in congress are.

you are not more "pro life" than I am I want to win the goddamned argument not a pat on the back at the fucking Church dinner.

As a secular matter Abortion is the status quo, you do not alter the status quo without a coalition.

As a religious matter I consider the abortion issue alone a blow to the legitmacy of our government but hey I don't have "make a wish" that fixes it on the spot.

Those women are indoctrinated for the last 39 fucking years and you think you can win out on the topic with women who have heard past their reproductive peak even "CHOICE ELEVENTY!!!" are gonna be swayed by "fuck you lady it was not even a legitimate rape!"?

Really?

That's weapons grade retard buddy.

You just tossed this race in the trash with that statement. The Donkey's will hang that on you from now till November. Not that you're against abortion so much as that you are stupid and uninformed about biology.

I'm against abortion myself but at least I'm not fricking STUPID about it. And if you actually believe what you said you are certifiably stupid. Or, giving you the benefit of the doubt, massively ignorant about human physiology. But still stupid for making that statement in public during a political campaign.

I'm still going to vote for you. Obamacare has to be repealed for this country to survive and the only way that can happen is with a strong R majority in both houses.

That coalition would be the states needed to pass a constitutional amendment.

Its not gonna happen in my lifetime, because polling shows ~70% of the public is OK with things as they are today so that states majority will never be formed.

Stare Decisis.

This is just red meat for the segment of the public that doesn't understand how court decisions and constitutional amendments work.

Completely accurate, I have relatives in NV, dems, and they cannot stand Harry Reid, and were favoring Tarkanian or even the other lady -- I forget her name -- than comes Sharron Angle and they went right back to Reid afterall the things Angle said, people who have been liberals or lean liberal aren't going to change overnight, a ship making a sharp turn like that breaks, and repubs keep making this same stupid mistake. First Angle, now Akin.
I cannot believe repubs in MO went for Akin, and he makes this dumba$$ statement, I am so pissed, I'm not giving him a dime. He couldn't shut his mouth until November?? I'm not even that socially conservative but I want fiscal sanity which is why I was willing to donate a lot to him -- especially to beat idiot Claire,but I know how this will play out, this interview will not just be used in MO, it will be used by the DNC. Stupid, absolutely stupid. A winnable seat and the idiot Akin couldn't keep his damn mouth shut until November. Couldn't keep the focus on just the jobs, economy, ObamaCare.

169 The Export-Import Bank, a federal agency that promotes and finances sales of U.S. exports to foreign buyers, approved a $32 million loan guarantee on Aug. 2 for a Brazilian firm to purchase wind turbines from LM Wind Power. According to its website, LM Wind Power is headquartered in Denmark.

“Ex-Im Bank’s financing, which guarantees a Bank of America loan, will support approximately 250 permanent American jobs at the company’s Little Rock, Ark., and Grand Forks, N.D., manufacturing facilities,” the bank said in a release.

The company maintains a manufacturing presence in Arkansas and North Dakota—but the company laid off 234 of the Arkansas plant’s roughly 300 workers just two days after its loan was approved.

Change you can believe in.

170 139 lowandslow,

you have to get enough votes to block filibuster pass the house and have a president to sign it dude....

ever take civics?

at the state level you can try to pass state laws outlawing even third trimester abortions in all cases....

do me a favor and let me know how the federal courts rule on those when it sees them....

now quick YOU tell me how a guy so retarded he shoots himself in the ball with weapons grade fucktard is "helping save babies" by scaring women...

yeah exactly....

and as an aside Fuck You again for trying to cast me as such a pussy I am defacto pro choice.

My position on abortion in the end is between God and I you are not invites to the party.

You can argue against my methodology as often as you'd like but I refuse to let YOU question my heart on the issue.

My wife had a fucking pregnancy I had to have aborted because I was broke and had to pay out of pocket and we didn't find out until we were at the clinic that the baby was malformed because she is missing a fallopian tune and part of her uterus and the implant went wrong anyway. She had a nonviable baby forming.

I have lost 4 kids to abortion from my ex who did not even let me know she was pregnant or nuked them and my wife and I went through 10 miscarriages to get one child and the best OB/GYN at John's Hopkins told me literally after a miscarriage we had on my son's second Birthday that my son was probably 1 in 20,000.

See this is a fucking charged issue sport and we just had a fucking retard make our case and the biased fucking media will clobber us.

I dream of 14 never babies lowandslow....I cry for them when I wake up in terror....

so again nice fucking job Morality cop would you like my phone number so you can demonize my active duty wife who lost 8 of those pregnancies on active fucking duty?

I will let this go on the "moral battlefield" if you will but acknowledge it is more complex than "it is WRONG LET'S END IT NOW!" please.

179 Congressman Todd Akin just released the following statement regarding
his interview on the "Jaco Report" broadcast this morning in St. Louis:


"As a member of Congress, I believe that working to protect the most
vulnerable in our society is one of my most important responsibilities,
and that includes protecting both the unborn and victims of sexual
assault. In reviewing my off-the-cuff remarks, it's clear that I
misspoke in this interview and it does not reflect the deep empathy I
hold for the thousands of women who are raped and abused every year.
Those who perpetrate these crimes are the lowest of the low in our
society and their victims will have no stronger advocate in the Senate
to help ensure they have the justice they deserve.

Akin statement:
"I recognize
that abortion, and particularly in the case of rape, is a very
emotionally charged issue. But I believe deeply in the protection of
all life and I do not believe that harming another innocent victim is
the right course of action. I also recognize that there are those who,
like my opponent, support abortion and I understand I may not have their
support in this election.

"But I also believe that this
election is about a wide-range of very important issues, starting with
the economy and the type of country we will be leaving our children and
grandchildren. We've had 42 straight months of unacceptably high
unemployment, trillion dollar deficits, and Democratic leaders in
Washington who are focused on growing government, instead of jobs. That
is my primary focus in this campaign and while there are those who want
to distract from that, knowing they cannot defend the Democrats' failed
economic record of the last four years, that will continue to be my
focus in the months ahead."

I am sorry for you experiences with the tragedy of losing a hoped for life.

My mom miscarried in december of 1970 and delivered a stillborn 6-8 month old child that my Father named our name with jr. as the suffix...

when my mom delivered me my dad was going to give me the same name as my older brother bore....she forced herself upright to scream and beg no, no the IId please please...

so I have the experience of building the house I was born in and seeing my headstone had he gone through with jr.


Life the creation of it, the loss of it, the waste of it is one of those things I grant a lot of latitude to folks to deal with because I sure as hell can't make sense of it beyond....

there is a beauty in existence that I would never lightly deny anyone but true evil.

Yeah I must have missed the direct narrative from God to kill yourself to write a wrong. To aid evil in gaining power over man to try to stand on a moral principle that is God's realm.

Must have missed that one.

We will win this by showing we are reasonable, and by funding science that tracks development.

The best we ever get may be that you do not get to harm a child past brain activity and viability, but after 40 or so million dead US babies I will happily "settle" for that.

Absolutely, they won't devote a second to the shooting at the FRC, but they will devote an entire day or week to this and then ask every repub, so "do you agree with Akin?"
I hope you are correct that Akin can pull it through and evict that witch Claire in november, at least this mistake was made in August and not late October.

231 222 Lowandslow,

have fun storming the castle I am done with you.

I'll pray you find solace navigating this imperfect mortal coil raging that it does not match your perfection.

I dreamt of 4 kids 3 boys 1 girl the youngest, a good job, nice wife, a house and yard by a lake like I was born to when mom was at her worst.

That dream got me through a lot.

I swore at 7 I'd be a perfect parent and have not lived up to that with my one child.

You need to learn to fix what you can and try not to inflict the pain life gave you on everyone or use rage as a toll.


and when I say "you" I mean me.

Find your own way mine did okay.

Ruby I agree, but I am worried that the media and the nation dems (but I repeat myself) will re-open the "war on women" with this gaffe.

I'm not as worried about Mo as I ma the national story.

This weeks msm narrative will be Romney's taxes and the war on women

233 Regarding Akin, the Missouri race is one thing. The bigger problem is this is getting used like a sledgehammer on us nationwide. We deserve what we get, however this shakes out in Missouri, but people in nationwide races do not deserve to get attached to this viewpoint.

Dagny? What happened w Dagny?

---

Several weeks ago, there was a thread having a racial component. There was also one or more trolls who were posting truly racist comments thus angering Ace. Dagny had the misfortune, just prior to Ace's outburst, to post a comment making an unfavorable reference to the weight of a welfare recipient (or something like that, I've forgotten the details). Ace viewed this as an over the line comment demeaning a class of people. In actuality, Dagny was not referring to a class of people but rather to a particular person in the newswho had madean obnoxious comment and whose weightDagny may have exaggerated but who evidenced no lack of enjoyment of food in Michael Moorian/Roseanne Barrianquantities. Ace called her out for insensitive stereotyping or some suchand Dagny was hurt. She voluntarily stopped posting. We all hope that this is a mere cooling off period and not a permanent condition. It was more of a misunderstanding that anything.

237 Best thing for Akin to do is not defend in anyway just apologize and move directly to economy and jobs every time someone brings it up.

Say i mispoke, and i apologize.

Then pivot right to the economy over and over.

Dont justify it at all

DOnt try to explain it away.

My sister's husband got a phone call from the local Obama campaign asking if he wanted to volunteer.
He's a huge Limbaugh fan, and reads books and websites with a conservative bent.
I can't for the life of me understand how the hell they got his name. My guess, their enthusiasm level has plummeted and they are out beating the bushes looking for warm bodies.

She told them he was a republican, but I said she should have volunteered him. Ya, know, to do his civic duty.

Also, it's before Labor Day and the conventions, and there just aren't as many people paying attention right now.

251 I asked my wife, who cannot stand Claire what she thought of this statement. My wife is still a registered dem, she is not pro-life, however she is not pro-abortion, doesn't believe in late term abortion etc. I try to gauge her reaction as to what many women in her line of thinking will think when listening to Akin.
She thinks Akin was an idiot for saying what he said -- but she wasn't surprised as he is socially very conservative, then said his/RNC's apology she thought was very good, still thinks Steelman would have been a better candidate -- my wife is a fan of Palin's which is why she likes Steelman (more women in congress), or even Brunner. Then she predicted that the DNC will use this as they always do, but she cannot stand Claire M. so is willing to overlookthis stupid statementdue to Akin/RNC's quick "clarification", and then she said, Akin better not say something this stupid again and stick to the real issues people care about, jobs, economy etc.

I felt the guy was polished enough to take it back to OCare again and again. Seriously, guys, that was all that was needed to take this away from Claire. She was dead in the water. She wanted Akin because she could use his social stances, but he just needed to focus on Ocare. That's it. And he does this. Fucking moron. Gotta hand it to Claire, she had it read perfect.

Ours was on the origin of sin. Turns out it was derived from the German "azund" or something like it. As in "rent asunder". Thus, sin is to separate, to set apart from one's fellow man and God because of bad behavior. I thought it was a very interesting sermon, but maybe that's just me.

thanks I have been here off and on awhile...never try to put on airs with non trolls either.

236 WR,



so that is the gory details of that....please let Dagny know to come home we miss her.



If anyone can get in touch with Rum tell her this lost Ohioan misses her....



I think I am gonna pull the fade....



I was made nervous by Rasmussen and we are gonna be taking a beating in the MSM and blogs unless I miss my guess...



I hate the abortion issue it is a loaded gun with a barrel that points
only backwards when we use it because of the Press/Education/Democrat
alliance.



I had been hoping the GOP was all on the same page, and we would have a
race focusing on the mishandling of the economy and the destruction
regulatory fiat has rendered...



that some think we are in any position at all to gamble against this communist with their pet social agenda item enrages me.



and rage is not fun.



I had a lot of fun coming back for a bit...enjoyed my Slavic sub maker schtick...



I miss you guys when I am gone but I need to do research on who else to donate to, and how much more to leverage my finances.



The risk we are running as a Military Family is the cessation of my
wife's career by sequester. Not a high order of probability but it is
there, but I decided to use our resources to fight hard once Mitt chose
Ryan because I felt it was the best combination, and not one I would
have wanted last year, to fight this evil we face. It is evil by the way that we
face, the modern liberal is a fascist at heart.



If it is obvious we are losing I am getting my CDL to lay the groundwork
for the higher risk loss of my wife's 15 year career, and deciding
between Texas, The Rockies, or Alberta as "what comes next". I strongly
encourage everyone to decide what your order of priority is on values
and how mobile you are in trying to maximize your chances of weathering
the next four years.



Things may happen quickly on my end so if I am gone too long or I make
my snap judgement and forget to say "adios" or "'til we meet again" for a
long stretch it has always been a mixed pleasure but a pleasure for
your company.



I like to think at my best I am a decent moron and at my worst mostly harmless enough to let froth in the corner.



Truman North heal bud, you do a good job taking that medicine.



To those who were on the ONT the update on KeyWest Reader is "fine and
should be home today"....don't know what that means but hope for the
best.



Barack is going to work hard if he wins to wreck our way of life, the
greatness of our nation is NOT in our unity as regards anything but
freedom. Unity and the demand for it is a very dangerous thing in a
system like ours and I have been harder than in the post admonishing
people to put down their priorities and unify behind this candidate to
stop the President. It would be my sincere joy to not be so afraid of
him I did not have to bargain on this principle but the man is not an
American in the sense his primary loyalty in to codified envy.



Plan accordingly.



This is not a suicide note WRT my being here but I want to take a break,
reflect, refocus, and try to be a motivating poster and force
multiplier not a divider.



I've shared more personal data here than I have with some neighbors on
bases in Maryland, South Carolina, Louisiana, Texas, and although I own
my house here in Indiana the next door neighbors here.



My friends here who have shared their experiences and perspectives have
helped a lot to look at matters with a different set of eyes.



The clarity and graciousness gained by auditing multiple perspectives is
seldom a weakness and thank you for your help in teaching me that
lesson.



regards,

sven

Posted by: toldyaso at August 19, 2012 04:38 PM (tOkJB)

Small crowds show a lack of enthusiasm? Are you sure? Maybe the campaign "intentionally limits crowds by restricting tickets" so that the speaker can "better connect with supporters"?

"We have plenty of time for big rallies,” a campaign spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, said between the rallies on Thursday. “Our focus right now is on exciting our supporters and winning over undecided voters and the smaller and medium-size events are the best venue to accomplish that because [we] can closely engage with the crowd."

Oh wait... Jen isn't a Romney/Ryan spokesperson.; she is Obama's. My mistake.

In complete agreement . The phrase "legitimate rape" is absolutely jarring to hear, and the rest of the statement is even more insane. I have to give Gov Palin a lot of credit, she so far has done a decent job picking the more politically saavy tea party candidates, she never endorsed Angle of NV, her dad endorsed Tankarian. In MO, she endorsed Steelmen, and really all 3 repub canidates are pro-life, but Akin has that stereotypical pro-life zeolot-like look that dems like to bash pro-life candidates with, Missy Claire probably knew this too and is just waiting to pounce, which is she was running ads for him. I didn't realise Huckabee endorsed him, I cannot stand Huckabee, he makes sense sometimes, but way too socially conservative for me.

However, so far the people I've seen getting outrageously outraged on Facebook about it are folks who would NEVER have voted for Akin in the first place. Missouri's a conservative state outside St. Louis, Kansas City, and Columbia. McCaskill is hated. Akin's going to win. Whether he'll be any damn good is an open question.

---

A guilty pleasure of mine right now is Anno Dracula by Kim Newman. It is a re-imagining of the Dracula novel in which Dracula is not killed but rather Van Helsing and the others are defeated. Dracula then marries Queen Victoria and become Prince Regent. Turning into a vampire on the promise, if not reality,of immortality and eternal youth becomes popular and discrimination against them becomes impossible. But not everyone is so willing to see their way of life destroyed in favor of such tolerance, in particular, Dr.Seward from the original novel decides to engage in some bloody protest by killing vampire prostitutesin Whitechapel where he adopts the name Jack the Ripper. My description may suggest otherwise but this is not a comedy; it is a depiction of an alternate possibility.
I may be reading more into it than the author intended but I see a certain analogy to our current Chick-Fil-A crisis. I haven't finished it so I don't know how it ends.

331 "I usually like Dana Loesch but she is defending him, or rather criticizing the criticism of the remark."
well, very silly of her to do that, maybe she hasn't read his "clarification" statement, she needs to agree, it was wrong to say what he said, he apoligized and then pivot to the economy, no point in defending such an insane statement and digging the hole deeper, because then at that point, she herself starts losing an credibility in what she says in the future.
Ryan's "both parties spent more" really appeals to independents like me. There is nothing wrong with admitting a mistake, dana apparently doesn't get it, she will earn and retain more credibility is she accepts, yes, its an stupid thing to say, both parties have done it, Akin was stupid to say it, he's apologized, move on to the economy. No point in digging the hole deeper.

Can they have another runoff election(justafter the primaries?)if Akin did step down? I doubt he would, however. I can only imagine the feminists that will be out for his head(and other Republicans). Sure Uncle Joey can say anything and Democrats and the mediajust blow him off, but this big blunder by Akinmay cause problems for other conservatives as well.


Ryan does not have moobs, he has pecs. Barney Frank has moobs. They are completely different. But I suppose liberals would rather see Frank shirtless instead.

336 Paul Ryan is mmm, mmm, good.

Boy this thread sure took a turn. One of the things I've really liked about this campaign season is that the R squared team has been pretty teflon. Obama has thrown the kitchen sink at Romney (is just starting with Ryan), but the attacks just bounce off Mitt, partly due to Dem overreach, but also because Mitt has volleyed back each time.

So yes, some Dems will try to use the Akin thing, but my confidence is building that the RR team can repel the attack. Also, people see through what the Dems have tried. Once you've accused someone of killing a little old lady with time-traveling cancer death rays, it's kind of hard to take other attacks from the same people seriously. Add in the nonstop Biden gaffe machine and O's blunders, and I personally don't think this is going to be as horrible a situation as some do.

Posted by: Truck Monkey at August 19, 2012 06:04 PM (jucos)


I think it's pretty obvious that Akin was talking (in his "legitimate rape" phrase) about women who will claim to have been raped in order to get abortions, given such an exception. I think it should be obvious that if there is only a rape exception for abortion, all of a sudden tons of claims of rape will come rolling in from women seeking abortions and the exception will become the rule - along with the collateral damage of many men being dragged over the coal in fake rape trials (since we give no punishments to false accusations of rape, as we all saw in the Duke case).

I don't know why people are having such problems with this. This is what we saw with "medical marijuana" which ended up being "recreational marijuana" with a little kickback to shitty physicians who are willing to say that anyone has a medical need for pot ... so long as the "patient" pays the fee.

Making a rape exception for abortion (for those opposed to abortion) does little to stop abortions but only will end up in insane numbers of false - i.e. illegitimate - rape accusations, just as we see all the illegitimatte claims of medicinal necessity of pot.

I think this should all be pretty clear. Akin semed to have been trying to address this point, and it's a point we should all be excedingly familiar with by now, as the left always takes any little "exception" and tries to blast it wide open and drive trucks through it. We see this in the regulatory agencies and everything else. This is the explanation for what he said and why what he said makes sense, even if Akin did a poor job of explaning it, himself.

Was sentenced to 50+ years in jail but got out in less than 20 years, started up liberal "charities" which are dubious. Now harasses Aaron Walker & threatens to sue many more conservative bloggers. Suspected to be behind the SWATing or at least know the people that are SWATing people who utter a mention of Kimberlin. Reason behind his threatening to sue because of his frivolous lawsuits against many people while in prison and gained a working knowledge of how to work the court system. He also claimed to post a $100,000 reward for voter fraud evidence by Republicans in Ohio in 2004 but no one bit. Another thing was he claimed to have sold marijuana to Dan Quayle but it turned out to be 100% bullshit.

That's too bad.I get the impressionthat Ace is especially sensitive on the subject of race. I've noticed that you can be pretty non-PC in here, and you can swear pretty liberally, but there is one - andONLY one - word that appears to be off limits, and it starts with "n". Granted, I can see why using such a word in a racist way would be off-limits, but it seems like people are even afraid to use it as a direct quote.

The term was used by a fellow student atmy daughter's high schoolonce, referring to her, for example.It was kind of amusing, in context, while at the same time showinga double standard. But even inhere,saying a specific wordmust befar worse thansaying "Voldemort" in Harry Potter's world. I would hesitate to even tellsuch a story, even while talking around the dreaded word.

I presume there's some way he could fall prey to legal action, or he just doesn't want to deal with it when liberals pull something out of context, and try to blame him. And so that is the world we live in I guess.

373 And let me add that leftists like to define rape to include women feeling "pressured" to have sex or deciding that they didn't like the sex after a few days of thinking about it.

A rape exception for abortion is only as good as the definition of rape and only as tight as society's respect for the rule of law will allow, which we have seen time and again is nto very much from the left.

Kimberlin - Speedway Bomber of Indianapolis, maimed a Vietnam veteran

Suspected to be behind the SWATing or at least know the people that are

threatening to sue because of his frivolous lawsuits against many people
while in prison and gained a working knowledge of how to work the court
system. He also claimed to post a $100,000 reward for voter fraud

You make a good point, but that is not a soundbite, what Akin said is a soundbite, I had to explain to my wife, not prolife, what Akin actually meant and it looks several minutes, her initially reaction to the phrase of "legimitate rape" was one of revulsion, if Akin had explained it in a better way, it would have worked, but he did the perfect soundbite that revulses people into not wanting to listen to anythint further.

Posted by: johnc_ex-democrat at August 19, 2012 06:42 PM (ACkhT)

383 Look, Akin just said one of the dumbest things I've ever heard come out of a politicians mouth. If this weren't a presidential election and the Senate race was at the top of the ticket, he might just be fucked. But, since it is, and he's running against McCaskill, and its Missouri, he'll still probably pull this out if he carefully walks this back and doesn't say anything else fucking retarded.

The reason I say this is, Obama is going to lose Missouri by about 6-9 points this time. No one is going to split their ticket over this unless it becomes a fullblown fiasco. Walk it back, and don't walk into anymore social issue landmines.

Seriously, why do Republicans even talk about abortion with the media? The only way to change current abortion law would be to either pass a constitutional amendment or for the SC to overturn RvW. The votes aren't there for either to happen at this point in time. Tell these cocksuckers that you aren't running for office to talk about hypotheticals when you should be talking about jobs, jobs, and some more jobs.

I think way down deep even the left knows Obama's lite whipped cream approach isn't adequate to the country's challenges. O's current People magazine media strategy sums up this administration perfectly.

Meanwhile the R team is oozing competence and the willingness to address our challenges while also transmitting a sense of (dare I say) hopefulness. I think their tone has been good, conveying the depth of the problems but also some optimism without being pollyanna-ish.

The MFM is going to do that to anyone who opposes abortion. Pro-Lifers need to get their argument straight and turn any discussions of "exceptions" into lectures on how the left destroys the Rule of Law through exceptions. There's no getting around the MFM going elevnety on this issue, no matter how it's phrased. Pro-lifers have to accept that fact (which I'm sure most have) and just understand how to address these issues when the despicable, lying scumbag leftists try to twist them as they do.

False rape accusations are uniquely dangerous in our society since those accused of rape are stripped of pretty much all of their Constitutional rights and have little recourse against false accusations. Anything that promotes more false rape accusations - especially in the charged atmosphere of a woman seeking an abortion for a claimed rape, including the time pressure on such a situation - is exceedingly dangerous to society and the Rule of Law, in general.

The MFM will continue to try to twist all this but conservatives (even those who are pro-abortion) need to make this simple argument and put the whole issue in its proper perspective. This is, in any event, an important discussion to have as the left destroys more through the outrageous abuse of legal exceptions than they do in any other matter, I would say.

Yes, Akin did a poor job of explaining his position, but what he said was not nearly as outrageous as most ___ine at first blush. People assume that only actual rape victims would be claiming they were raped to get abortions and they interpret his "legitimate" in that context, but when anyone thinks about it for more than a second he realizes that it's about those who weren't raped claiming they were to get the abortions.

Akin did an awful job of trying to dance around a very touchy issue. He tried to finesse it with the idea that the body rejects things of its own (which is a lefty position, BTW, as they like to think that the mind has lots of control over diseases and such) but that was a bad move. In general, though, his comment about pregnancies from actual rapes being "rare" was correct if given in an ill-phrased argument that included a little lefty hocus-pocus about the mind controlling the body to a huge extent.

441 When will we learn to shrug things off?

The Left/media does it all the time. Fast and Furious -- shrug. Attempted mass murder at FRC's office building -- shrug.

But if one of our candidates says something un-PC about abortion...oh shit it's time to panic.

Fuck it. Ignore it.

Do like the Left: pretend it never happened. If you can't do that, pretend it's no big deal.

And, finally, to shut them up, you say Democrats do it, too.

Posted by: johnc_ex-democrat at August 19, 2012 06:59 PM (ACkhT)


I hear you. My wexplanation was long because this is about the left using exceptions to destroy our law - any law, for that matter. That is the issue and it is a very serious one that should be addressed in full.

People reacted strongly because Akin used a very poor structure of argument. Conservatives reacted strongly because they initially imagine that most people are decent and will follow the law as intended, thereby misinterpreting the "legitimate rape" phrase to describe actual rapes, a la Whoppi's distinction between "rape-rape" forcible rape and plain "rape" statutory rape, rather than delineating between claims of actual rape and fake claims of rape to get the rape exception abortion.

It shouldn't be that hard for people to turn this discussion around and make it apparent that leftist abuse of exceptions has almost destroyed our laws and threatens all future laws that we might even contemplate. If the Duke rape liar had been jailed over her baring false witness against the boys and Nifong had been jailed over his promoting the same then this exception idea would be less of an issue and the problem of fake rape claims less of a threat to general society, but none of that happened and little is more dangerous in our society than fake accusations of rape for which the accused have little defense against or recourse for when the truth eventually comes out.

It is important that this discussion finally take place. It's long overdue.

Remember the Komen's cutting funds to PP, what a storm that was, that's going to be nothing compared to what the MSM will do with this Akin comment. Every single repub will be painted with this a$$nine statement from Akin.

Akin said something stupid and it's out there. The MSM/Dems will try to make hay, no surprise there. No R will condone or support what he said, and many will denounce. He's already issued a follow up statement, so as long as the R's don't over-react and stick to the script, I think could be a one day story.

I have just one "but." While the statement was good, he doesn't say he was wrong [about how women's bodies magically nullify rape-sperm], and he doesn't apologize. I wish those elements were in the statement because he could get drug into issuing another one which could extend the story. Otherwise, the walk back followed by a pivot to the economy and unemployment is perfect.

463 Candidates must agree to:

1). Learn their lines.

2). Keep their appearance consistent throughout the campaign.

3). Don't try to run the campaign. Hire someone to do it and LISTEN TO THEM. If you don't like how they do it, hire someone else.

4). Spend 30% or more of every waking minute asking peoe for money.


If a candidate can't commit to that, he's not really a candidate.

515 Someone earlier asked if there is anyone from Missouri. I'm in St. Louis county and was one block from Akin's district. Now it's been redistricted and next go around I will be in his former district.

Now Akin was my 3rd choice, mostly because he was most driven by social issues. You'd see comments to that effect in the MO primary thread. However, you'll see comments from me and others saying that all 3 will take Claire down. I, in no way, saw something like this coming.

I'm stunned. I respected Akin because while I don't agree with his priorities I thought he was pretty much right on his stances, and I followed him in the house races and thought he was pretty capable of walking past any minefields and staying on message.

Clearly, couldn't be more wrong on that. I guess running for a house district and statewide office are 2 different things, but a comment with that kind of phrasing doesn't come from anywhere good. This is a little more than cracking under the spotlight as far as I am concerned.

As for how this will play in Missouri, he'll still do well in the rural areas and get crushed in the cities. St. Louis county is huge and should be close to 50/50. I think that goes out the window, and it's roughly 20% of the state vote.

Ask yourself who exactly is going to sign up to knock on some doors for him, let alone make some phone calls. Heck, what voters are going to want to defend him in casual office or neighborhood conversation? Answer that honestly, and I suspect that tells you how this will play in Missouri.

522 KABUL, Afghanistan — Another NATO soldier was killed on Sunday by an Afghan police officer, raising the coalition death toll from so-called "green on blue" shootings to nine in 11 days as the United States urged Kabul to step up screening of recruits.
The growing insider threat has eroded trust between NATO and its Afghan allies, causing a headache for Western powers who are planning to pull out most of their troops by the end of 2014.


"Causing a headache for western powers"? Our corporal set's a deadline for leaving and all order goes in the crapper and it's a "headache"? Fuck the "leaders" who agreed to this and did not resign. Makes me sick to think of the good men and women who have died in a useless game.

531 Researched the MO Secretary of State's page while on my phone at the hospital. If I read the statute correctly, if Akin withdraws, he can be replaced with a candidate chosen by the state party committee, as long as the election is still 11 weeks away. (My phone has a tiny screen and it was a pdf file, so the 11 week thing, I'm not sure about. There were mentions of 8 weeks and 6 weeks too, but 11 was the farthest out I saw.) Election day is 11 weeks from Tuesday. If it's going to happen, looks like it will be quick.

I disagree and I think you are wildly overreacting. Akin wasn't wrong about the essence of what he was driving at. He just stated it in a ham-handed way and added a little leftist idiocy about the mind being able to control the body more than a reasonable amount. That's it. His point about pregnancies from actual rapes (which is what he meant, rather than "legitimate", as he meant "legitimate claims" of rape) being rare is true and the risk of false rape accusations going through the roof given rape exceptions is also obvious to anyone who has lived in America for more than two years. And false rape accusations are about as dangerous as anythign in empathetic, PC American courts - so anything that promotes more of them is dangerous, stupid, and destructive. On top of all that, abortion is still strictly an issue that the federal courts retain all control over so there is nothing that Akin can do about it, anyway.

Don't go totally hysterical over this. The MFM would have made a big deal out of anyone who is anti-abortion and dosn't allow for rape exceptions and they create all sorts of other exceptional problems for anyone who is anti-abortion. There's no getting around that. Get used to it. Don't let the MFM push you around over nothing.

537 With respect to what clay akin or whatever the hell his name said-

Yes, it was a complete bonehead play. An own goal, and it could cause a whole wave of un-needed shit to fall on our side's players all over the country. Could- we don't know for sure until the week plays out.

That said-

About this time last week, I was frightened that RMoney was going to pick pawlenty or that cypher from ohio or some other non-descript entity to be his running mate.

Instead we got the guy that's kicking ass all over the yard in the clip above, and in fact he's been doing so since last week at this time.

Also in the week just passed, we flipped mediscare over onto to earflaps mcshitstain and his differently abled sidekick chain-o the clown. In the process, neutralizing one of the dumbocrat party's biggest plays.

Also, we finally, FINALLY are getting the public at large to stop and think about just how stunningly moronic biden is after a lifetime of idiocy. This is a major blow to earflaps the unfit.

So on balance, even with akin sticking his entire torso up his ass on this one, I'm going to go out on a limb and say we are WAAAAAY the hell ahead of the game.

C'mon, we weren't going to win every issue for the next two and a half months. Yes it sucks that we just handed them a club to smack us with and they didn't even have to say please, but politicians are mainly dumb animals. What you gonna do?

What really concerns me is what else is going to come out of this dope's mouth before November. Is he going to be a GOP Joe Biden? Because while the media has smiled and said "That's just Joe" for years, you know damn well nobody will cut Akin the same slack.Sven: My condolences.

Can't we just say it's a tragic, terrible experience and she should decide what's best for her as far as her pregnany, mental and pysical health with the help of her church, family and doctor?


SoCons you aren't going to win that battle and if you keep fighting it you won't win your larger point because people including me think you are going just to damn far.

And the powers of the mind over the body are well within the lefty world, so I'm not sure that they would be so quick to cut out on that. The left is always going on about the power of the mind over the body - laughing your way as a cure to cancer and the rest of that tripe.

Akin was just saying that cases of pregnancy from rape are rare. It's true. He intimated that there will be many illegitimate calims of rape to get abortion exceptions. Also true, and too obvious for words, really.

not. Sperm + egg = pregnancy. We don't have trap doors in our vagina for
rape-sperm, you fucking douche-bag.

afraid, women, be very afraid. VOTE MCCASKILL, MISSOURIANS - if you

the power of the mind over the body - laughing your way as a cure to
cancer and the rest of that tripe.

Akin was just saying that
cases of pregnancy from rape are rare. It's true. He intimated that
there will be many illegitimate calims of rape to get abortion
exceptions. Also true, and too obvious for words, really.


Posted by: ThePrimordialOrderedPair

With all due respect, do you actually think trying to explain what he meant about "legitimate" rape is a winning argument?

Do you think in any way you are going to win any votes trying to explain that?

Really?

And do you think the right gets to play by the same rules as the left?

I think that the explanation is simple enough and that you need to be aware that you are politically aligned with lots of people whose basic conclusions you might agree with but whose reasoning to get there could differe in large part. That's life.

Akin made his argument badly but the essence of his argument was not wrong (not for people who are pro-life). He made one serious mistake with the idea that stress or violence seriously affects ones chances of getting pregnant but I would gather he said that to do a PC tap-dance around the intolerant people who would take apart anyone who didn't allow for abortion exceptions in cases of rape. He shouldn't have, because there is no tap-dancing around that. He should have just said that he was opposed to killing innocent life even in circumstances of rape ... though he would have gotten the same level of crap from the left, anyway.

Instead, he tried to make a case about people skirting the law by making illegitimate rape claims to get abortions and messed the whole thing up. Big friggin deal.

You know, when people who have been on a forced starvation diet, they tend to overeat when a sudden supply of food is made available. Many times it makes them sick or kills them. But they can't help it. The Dems and MSM have been subsisting on lizards and cockroaches for awhile now. They've been comforting each other by describing huge, delicious meals they have eaten in happier times. Reflexes say they are going to wolf this Akin shit down until they retch. But it's not enough to sustain; It's just enough to make them mad.

C'mon, there is no spinning Akin's asinine comment. When you think about it, it's also an insult to women who became pregnant as a result of rape and made the difficult choice to have the baby, because according to Akin, if they had shut down their bodies or some damn thing, they wouldn't have conceived in the first place. It also plays into the cherished lefty idea that cons are anti-science rednecks because this fool doesn't seem to understand basic biology. Well, maybe Claire will come out with something equally damaging. Maybe someone can get her to tell a St. Louis crowd "I hate the Cardinals. David Freese sucks."

Even if you take or accept the explanation that he meant some women lie about being raped to get an abortion, the next statements he makes "the female reproductive system shuts down when a woman is being raped, preventing conception" cannot be defended and will cost the GOP some serious points with independents, disgusted dems, in all the swing states, economy or no economy.

679 The court says the military still cannot shoot down a hijacked passenger plane - fighter jets would have to intercept the plane and fire warning shots to force it to land.

After World War II the new constitution ruled that soldiers could not be deployed with guns at the ready on German soil, the BBC's Stephen Evans reports from Berlin.

The court has now changed that, saying troops could be used to tackle an assault that threatens scores of casualties.

The judges had in mind a terrorist incident involving armed attackers in public places.

695 In a normal and sane world, this sort of remark would last for a few days news cycle and then disappear.

This is not a normal and sane world anymore. It is driven by the madness and the imperative of the Internet, the need for people to assert their personalities on all sorts of events. Twitter, Facebook, blogs,whatever.

It's mass madness of personalization. And there are groups of people all over the political spectrum that want to take any random comment by some idiot public figureand use it to typify whoever they oppose.

I have no real idea who this Akin guy is, but the picture plastered on the masthead of my ISP home page indicates to me he is a bit of a butter-faced moron. There is probably more stupid where this came from.

All of this to justify an extreme abortion position but oh well we will either win or we will lose. This might affect it, it might not. No big deal either way right?

Should have clarified that statement. They are sending more rape and death threats than usual.

This ain't my first rodeo. I know how the MSM works.There will be some pounding holler and screaming about this for awhile. Until the next squirrel runs by.

We were told that Romney's "gaffes" on his overseas trip would doom him. We were told that the alleged pederast Harry Reid's tax charges would bring Mitt down. We were told that the Ryan pick was a sign of desperation, and that tying Obama to Mediscare was a stupid strategy. I see how long the MFM will hold on to a meme, they're still bringing up Seamus the dog.

I understand that this was an error. R R have run a great campaign so far, I think they've already dealt with it properly.

What's Romney supposed to say when asked about abortion? "I already answered this. How about that 15 percent unemployment rate?" FYNQ.

Nobody on the left thought it was significant until the upwelling of revulsion built from the grassroots and the blog wildfire.. Then the Mass Bullshit Media went into full Total Defense mode, explaining how it was all taken out of context, and that the meaning was inverted.

Except the more you read or listen to that little speech by Obama, the more it seems it was not taken out of context, and that is exactly what he meant and has always thought. Which the Left knows because they think the same way, but realize that the wording of Obama's statement was a problem. So now they have tried to change reality.

Which is what they do. Try to change reality.

739 Mo should be a flip, and it should have been a flip that would not have cost a ton of investment. Obviously, more voters will show support for either Brunner or Steelman now. We have 2 days. I appreciate that people don't think we should panic, and that any respectable politician should be able to deflect this. My point is that they shouldn't have had to spend time doing this.

There is a chance to do some damage control by sending the message to Akin. RNC, Huckabee, whoever that the guy needs to step down. I live in Missouri so I am certainly emotionally charged about this, but we need to take the senate here and we just gave Claire a ton of life. Forgive me if this pisses me off to no end, and if I lobby people who feel the same to push to get Brunner, Steelman, or a canned ham on the ticket while we still have a chance to. All of which polled ahead of Claire and well outside the margin.

We don't need cooler heads to prevail with this. We need to make sure we have a candidate that will win this race and it sounds like we have about 44 hours to get one, and there are several to choose from.

747 mama winger is correct. Yes, it was a stupid, stupid thing to say. But jeez, you didn't think the Dems weren't going to replay the "War on Women" card before this came up? Politicio reported this morning they're planning a "Ryan Hates Women" campaign. That was in the works before Akin ever opened his dumb mouth. Sure, Akin handed ammo to the enemy, but this election is not going to be about abortion or birth control or how babies are made, no matter how much the Dems want to change the subject.
To whoever said he wouldn't vote for Akin ifhe lived in MO - please tell me just how a US Senator can singlehandedly change US abortion law? If I lived in MO, I still would vote for the bonehead, because he's still a damn sight better than what they have in there now.

Posted by: Craig Poe

I used to be totally pro choice / pro death.

I was like omg WOMAN'S BODY WOMAN'S RIGHT LET THE BOOBS FLY FREE!

Then I got a puppy that was scheduled to be euthenized cause she had all kinds of problems at birth, weak knees that would likely lead to luxation, abdominal lesion at birth, cushing's disease. I had 8 years with her, and countless surgeries - nearly 30K in medical costs. She ended up developing autoimmmune disease and almost died at 6 but fought back for two more years of time and finally cancer from a tumor on her adrenal gland brought on by cushings took her from me.

She was the most loyal loving amazing dog I ever had. Taught me the value of life and how unique and precious every life is.

Not being a woman I do not believe I have any right to tell a woman what she can and can't do, but for me personally, I am 100% pro life now.

Not married. so its not an issue i have faced yet. I am sure if it directly affected me i would say no way but its pretty unrealistic to expect that I could tie my future wife down and force her to give birth to a child she didnt want just because I wanted it.

Thats why there is divorce court i suppose although i imagine when i marry i will marry a woman who does want children and is pro life. I dont think it would get to the alter if our views on something that basic were so divergent.

But do i have the right to walk into my neighbors home and prevent them from aborting? Not with the current laws in this country.

OK, here's Thorvald's sentence before the one I quoted: "Internet source saying only 5% of rapes result in pregnancy."

This is because the majority of rapesare committed by inmates. male-on-male, and female on female.

I cannot vouch for eitherThorvald's cited5% rape pregnancy figure, or the overall total number of rapes given, but thefacts arethat most rape is prison rape, and we have over 2,000,000 prisoners in the US. Hey! Let's get Todd Akin'sinput on this.
