If You Want to Repeal Obamacare, Support Akin & Mourdock

What has been overshadowed by pro-life remarks made by Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock is that the Republicans must take back the United States Senate to have a chance of repealing Obamacare.Even if Mitt Romney wins, it will be for naught if Harry Reid still controls the Senate. That is the reality. That is why Republicans must rally to two gentlemen who are committed pro-lifers, but who said things in defense of children that others have decided to beat them up about.Honestly, you can be a pro-lifer and be offended by what they said. But at least they spoke up and tried to defend a position many in the GOP run away from. We should, however, be ashamed of a pro-life community that does not have these gentlemen’s backs now. We need them in the Senate to repeal Obamacare. We need them in the Senate to take a Senate majority.What is so striking to me, frankly, is how so many establishment Republican types for so long told those of us who didn’t much care for Mitt Romney to get in line because he is the nominee. Well, we did. And we’re proud to support him. So suck it the hell up and get in line for Todd Akin (I’m looking at your NRSC) and Richard Mourdock, the Republican nominees for the U.S. Senate in Missouri and Indiana.We need the Senate. We need Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock to get the Senate. Oh, and you want to know the punchline? They really can win. Mourdock probably will. Akin is close.So help them or give up on repealing Obamacare. Ever.And once you are done helping those two, go help Josh Mandel. It’s a very, very tight race in Ohio. Some polls have Josh ahead by a few and some have him behind by a few. We’re going to need Josh in the Senate. He’ll be an awesome conservative. He’s a terrific guy. We should do all we can for these three.
