Enough of Todd Akin. How about a bigger player: Paul Ryan

We’ve spent so much time talking about Todd Akin lately and his extreme position on a woman’s right to choose an abortion in the case of incest or rape. But Akin is a small player, here. What about the Republican pick for Vice President? In the past 15 years in the Congress, he has mad his position on women’s rights very, very clear.

Ryan sponsored a bill that would potentially allow rapists to stop their victims from having an abortion: The Sanctity of Life Act. Not only was ANY reason for abortion eliminated, but rapists could sue women who WANTED an abortion. The fact that it did not pass doesn’t change his viewpoint… and he has also worked with Akin several times in creating such legislative weaponry.

Here’s a very good summation of Ryan’s abortion legislation as explained by David Pakman on his television show:

Question: How can Ryan continue to say that he supports the rights of all Americans when he sees women as nothing more than breeding animals?

Keep in mind, there are solutions to what Ryan and his like represent:

Christian Groups Support Akin

His party says it’s time to leave,

but Akin says he’ll just believe

the Christian groups that say “stay in there”

since they all see him upping their share.

Obama said this utter ass

must have missed a science class.

But all of this is hardly dimmin’

Todd Akin‘s cause: The War on Women.

 

And this from the Ragin’ Grannies:

Hee hee hee… Mitt Romney’s Joking Quote of the Day…

 

Speaking in Michigan, Romney came out with this Birther joke:

“No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised.”

Of course, he has said earlier that he has no doubts that Obama was born in the USA. A hearty applause, however, met his comment. Still, it was awkward  for the candidate to play on the birther conspiracy , even after the president released his “long-form” birth certificate in 2011.

Reuters released Mitt Romney’s own birth certificate on the day when the candidate appeared with Donald Trump, who once again spurted out his doubts about the president’s birthplace.

Is this crap ever going to end. I guess when you have no solutions to the many problems we face, this is about as good as Willard can do.
