Using Semantics to Take Down Conservative Representative Todd Akin

Why is anybody defending Akins comments when he is running from them himself? These were deliberate comments to show he is extreme on abortion, a luxury he does not have as a candidate for the US senate. He took only a third of the Republican vote and needs to get half the state to vote for him. If he can't represent the whole community he should not be running for the senate. He should be running as a pastor.

He's running from his comments because people he thought were his allies are piling on with typical leftwing hits.

A pro-lifer cannot be "extreme on abortion." They believe in defending all unborn lives--that is not "extreme;" that is humane, compassionate, and Godly. The total opposite of the so-called pro-choice view that believes it is okay to kill certain (inconvenient) babies before birth--and, like Obama, even during delivery if the mother actually chose abortion. He is the extreme one--not Akin.

Too bad Akin didn't just quote Whoopi, and say "rape-rape" instead of "legitimate-rape." GOP candidates should always use Dem/lib/progressive's own words so the media has nothing to condemn or exaggerate into a mountain of an illegitimate story BTW, ever notice that a Republican's apology is never, ever good enough?

Liberal pundits are declaring they have no idea what Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) meant when he referred to “legitimate rape” in an interview this past week. Akin stated, "In cases of legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down." It was an awkward, inarticulate statement, but the substance of it was correct. Explaining what he meant since then would be a bit crude, so he has not been able to adequately defend himself. His attackers have used the awkwardness to pounce on him and pretend they don't know what he meant, or
