Leslie Marshall Too Emotional To Defend Salazar
Since Revealing Politics broke news of Democratic Colorado state Rep. Joe Salazar’s opinion on why women shouldn’t carry guns to defend themselves against rape, the left and the right have been in heated battle over the topic. Liberal radio talk show host and Fox News Contributor Leslie Marshall has spoken more than once in defense of Salazar claiming that, as a victim of attempted rape, she can | Read More »
Faulty Premises and Outlooks Formed
As I noted earlier the very cast of characters who tried to bring us “big government conservatism” and wound up seeding the tea party movement are at it again. This time they want to defeat conservatives by pooling millionaire dollars to label a bunch of squishes “conservative.” They are, in essence, painting targets on the backs of a lot of candidates, making anyone they support | Read More »
The usual hand wringing is occurring now about social conservatives causing the GOP to lose. Todd Akin lost because he swallowed his foot and kept gagging on it, not because he is pro-life. Richard Mourdock was beaten by a Democrat who ran as a pro-lifer. As for the so called “war on women,” there is no war on women and women did not abandon Mitt | Read More »
Do you want to repeal Obamacare?
Claire McCaskill. Bob Casey Jr. Sherrod Brown. Bill Nelson. Tammy Baldwin. Tim Kaine. These Senators and Senate candidates all support or even voted for Obamacare. Importantly, they all have Republican opponents who have a chance to win, thanks in part to the growing support for Mitt Romney in their swing states.
If we want to defeat Obamacare, it is critical that we elect Republicans to as many Senate seats as we can. The sad fact is that we can’t just get 50 and hope to win on a reconciliation tiebreak vote cast by Paul Ryan. You never know if the Democrats might find an anti-TEA party Republican who oppose the will of the voters and come to the other side. So we need to elect as many Republicans as we can.
That means no Republican left behind. George Allen, Tommy Thompson, Connie Mack, Josh Mandel, Tom Smith, and yes, Todd Akin are six key anti-Obamacare votes we need to elect, along with of course Mitt Romney.
We can only do this if we knock on doors, contact voters, and get out the vote for this important election. Please help.

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 | Read More »
Todd Akin Can Win. The NRSC Will Cut Off Its Nose to Spite Its Face in Missouri.
In 2010, the National Republican Senatorial Committee spent a great deal of time and energy portraying conservatives as the reason the GOP did not take back the Senate. They blamed Jim DeMint for Sharon Angle’s win, though he chose not to supporter her in the primary. They blamed Jim DeMint and Sarah Palin for Christine O’Donnell’s win, though they endorsed a week before the primary | Read More »
Priebus on Akin: “He Could Be Tied, We’re Not Going To Send Him A Penny”
In an interview for Revealing Politics today, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus was asked, among other things, if the party’s position on Akin would eventually change if Akin refused to step out of the race: . The question is: “If he stays in, is your position eventually going to change? Are you going to have to support him? The Chairman replies “No, no. No. He could | Read More »
Some Comments on Todd Akin, Abortion, and Rape
I’ll be frank: abortion is something I feel very strongly about, yet I do not enjoy talking about. In fact, I’d describe my enthusiasm as I type this post as something approaching tepid at best. Nevertheless, I think I should make some sort of comment on US Senate candidate Todd Akin’s remarks on so-called “legitimate rape” and abortion. First of all, the remarks demonstrate why | Read More »

Download Podcast | iTunes | Podcast Feed On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by Josh Kraushaar to discuss the controversial comments of Todd Akin, how this impacts the GOP’s chances of winning in Missouri, and lack-luster Republican Senate candidates in key battleground states. We’re brought to you as always by Stephen Clouse and Associates. If you’d like | Read More »
Will Congressman Akin Put His World View Ahead of His Pride?
The hyperbole from the left over Todd Akin has been disgusting. The man truly believes that children who are conceived out of rape should not be killed. The Bible teaches us that God raised us up from the dust of the earth and stitched us together in our mothers’ wombs. When you believe that, as Congressman Akin does, then it is asking much to tear | Read More »
The Broader Issue is Abortion on Demand, Not Political Gaffes
Over the weekend, Missouri Republican senatorial candidate Todd Akin made bizarre comments about pregnancies resulting from rape during an interview with a local TV station. In response to a question regarding his opposition to abortion even in cases of rape, and as part of an effort to illustrate the rarity of such abortions in the scheme of the broader epidemic, Akin offered an inane, inaccurate, | Read More »
Todd Akin’s Dumb Comment vs. Obama’s Support of Infanticide
Todd Akin, the Republican Senate nominee in Missouri, made an inarticulate and rather dumb statement about rape and abortion on television in Missouri. He subsequently clarified his remarks. Congressman Akin, like many devout Christians, does not believe in a rape exception for abortion. Naturally, the very same left that gave Joe Biden a pass on his “put y’all back in chains” comment is horrid by | Read More »
Steelman over 50% vs McCaskill in Missouri
I’m glad that we’re now starting to have a better idea of the shape of the Senate race, as we settle down on who the candidates are going to be, and how they’re polling against incumbents (or each other, in the case of open seats). Soon I will update my Senate projections with actual data. In the meantime, we’ve got the first Missouri Senate poll | Read More »
