Democrats: 154 Years of Progress Uninterrupted by Common Decency

Every election we see the same depressing phenomenon: conservatives poised to win big, and single-issue right-to-life/anti-abortion true believers who jump into the limelight, alienate swing voters who decide the outcome, and elect Democrats. Romney/Ryan have the skills and the will to pull us back from Obama's plunge into permanent serfdom if they can just keep the focus on the economy and the size of government; and Baisley and his friends have to jump in and scream "abortion!" Todd Akin forfeited an easy win over Claire McCaskill with his idiotic comment and pigheaded refusal to get out of the race -- maybe ensuring that Democrats keep the Senate and we are doomed to live under Obamacare. As Bob Gates famously said, Shut the F*** Up!

Romney/Ryan lose my respect for their hypocrisy in throwing Rep. Akin under the bus ........as do any and all "conservatives" who are also throwing him under the bus.

Rep. Aiken stood up for pro-life principles and apologized for the mis- speak. I am waiting to see how the Republicans handle pro life issues at the convention before deciding to vote for Romney/Ryan or sit this one out

As I said below:
A "non" vote this election is a vote for Obama.....I will blame you and all the Pauler's that think NOT voting is "good" for America.

Akin actually spoke to the Republican pro life platform.

If Romeny/Ryan and/or other "conservatives" want him to step down because of it that makes them hypocrites.

If they did not agree with the pro life platform they should have had it changed.

I am waiting to see how they handle it in the convention. If they are not going to uphold the pro life plank I will NOT vote for them.

Elections have consequences....you'll be walking the plank for sure if Obama gets re-elected.....believe it.

"If they are not going to uphold the pro life plank I will NOT vote for them."

Would you really rather see Obama reelected, Democrats keep the Senate, Obamacare become permanent, our military continue to be castrated, our economy destroyed, our freedoms repealed, and two or three pro-abortion Justices appointed to the Supreme Court, just to punish Romney for being insufficiently pure in his support for your position on abortion? Really?

No but he's down by 9% in the polls. Steelman or Brunner would win by 10% or more. Can you possibly think it's worth losing the seat, and the Senate, to defend Akin's right to say stupid things? Our country, our future is at stake.

I've been trying to get that across, Stephen, but there are some what will spite their face by cutting off their nose I guess :>)

Akin actually said something incredibly stupid: that a woman's body could magically prevent pregnancy during a rape. Akin was disavowed for being stupid, not for being pro life.

The once-every-four-years national convention season begins this week with the Republican Party finalizing the nomination of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.  Democrats take their turn the following week with the renomination of Barack Obama and, presumptively, Joe Biden.  ;-)

The whole political party system was not even in place in the United States until well after George Washington’s first oath of office.  The first semblance of a political party formed out of a remnant of the Federalists, who organized the U.S. Constitution in 1787.  According to my legacy 1964-65 Encyclopedia Britannica, “The political group which became known as the Federalist party...
