Akin: Paul Ryan Called and Urged Me to Drop Out But This Isn't About Me

That is just not true. The dems ran ads saying Akin was too conservative. These were far from pro-Akin ads. They just screwed up and hit a positive note among conservatives. You're parroting a democratic talking point. You are wrong.

Except it is about you, Rep. Akin. Akin told NBC this morning that Paul Ryan called him yesterday and urged him to drop out of the Missouri Senate race. Akin is continuing his argument that his decision to stay in the race (the deadline to drop out was yesterday at 5 pm cst) that this isn't about him but about standing on principle. The problem is, the focus isn't on principle, it's on Akin's refusal to drop out like nearly the entire conservative movement and Republicans have asked.
