If Akin will not withdraw, the national Reps. should ignore him and let him carry on his race as well as he can. Once some think about it, the misspeaking is not as dreadful as thought at the time. And it made the Dims. come out as the party most concerned about abortion/killing babies, and that is really not a winning position. 51% nationally are now opposed to abortion. Let the lefties run on that. And let Akins be responsible for himself, altho' I think for the good of the party and because we want to retake the Sen., Akins should resign.

We have to watch and pray that come November the re-election of Barack Obama hasn't been achieved. He needs all the votes he can get.

Experience should have taught us he'll HAVE them. We're up against it, Mitt Romney won't cut the mustard. Our party of the Right is neutered. We have four more years of Obama in the offing. In my honest opinion.

Prediction: If the GOP establishment doesn't follow Republican Rep. Todd Akin's example with a big, fat apology -- to Akin -- the whole party goes down in flames come November.

I don't mean every Republican will lose, but there is great political peril in not sealing the hole in Republican armor that has opened in Missouri and instead permitting it to remain a Democratic pressure point. Further, "for the good of the country" (the mantra accompanying the partywide chorus of pleas to Akin to drop out of his U.S. Senate race), Republicans must resume funding Akin's viable campaign ASAP, after cutting it...
