Reporter, radio host, and others stand behind Rep. Todd Akin's views on women being less likely to get pregnant through rape.
He's at the center of the Akin mess, and of conservative politics. Arkansas' Ed Koch?
President Obama said today in a press conference that he didn't think Mitt Romney was responsible for the death of a steelworker's wife portrayed in an ad by his SuperPAC. The President then added the ad wasn't run or produced by his campaign and barely ran. But a similar claim exists on his website in a slideshow linking Romney to the woman's death.
I believe the phrase "Shut up and take my money!" is applicable here. Hey Nintendo, make this premise!

The Romney campaign responded to Todd Akin's claims about pregnancy and rape by contradicting Paul Ryan's previous hard-line position. Romney may be recognizing that while Ryan's anti-abortion record pleases some conservative groups, it may not win the election.

The Romney campaign released a statement criticizing Missouri Republican Senate nominee Todd Akin: "Gov. Romney and Congressman Ryan disagree with Mr. Akin's statement, and a Romney-Ryan administration would not oppose abortion in instances of rape."But a 2007 statement by Romney at a debate might muddy Romney's statement, in which Romney said he would be "delighted" to sign a bill banning all abortions, saying it would be "terrific" in we reached consensus in the country. Update Mitt Romney's 2007 "on the issues" page notes he supports exceptions in cases of rape and incest, but also notes that abortion should be a state issue. Update The Obama campaign says in a statement: "While Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are working overtime to distance themselves from Rep. Todd Akin’s comments on rape, they are contradicting their own records. Mr. Romney supports the Human Life Amendment, which would ban abortion in all instances, even in the case of rape and incest. In fact, that amendment is a central part of the Republican Party’s platform that is being voted on tomorrow."
