The Republicans in Missouri elected Todd Adkin to the U.S. House of Representatives over and over and over and over. Akin is known for his inappropriate and ill-informed statements. They loved him. And when he talked in an interview at a St. Louis TV station of "legal rape" or "forced rape" there was a nationwide uproar. NOW and SUDDENLY the Republicans finally had to act. Romney said Adkin should resign from the election. Ryan called Adkin personally to ask him to step aside. It all reminded me of the movie "Casablanca" where the police leader played by Claude Rains said he was :shocked" to find gambling going on at Rick's Place, though he had been sitting in Rick's for many months watching it.
Todd Akin's thinking about women, rape, abortion, etc. was known everywhere. This goof's Neanderthal thinking about women was well documented. The Republicans liked him because he played to a certain element in the right-wing that agreed with that stupidity. Heck, Paul Ryan himself had co-sponsored a bill in the House of Representatives with Adkin to outlaw all abortions...yes, ALL aboritions, even in the case to save the woman's life. ALL abortions. They cloaked some exceptions in the Middle Ages language like "Forced rape." Folks, rape is rape is rape is rape is rape! Ryan and Adkin were social buddies. Their views concerning women are like brothers or at least very close friends.
Romney, Ryan, and the rest of the extreme right-wing will do anything to get elected and protect the wealthy sponsors, to protect tax breaks for the wealthy, permit sweet contracts for our war industry, and generally do whatever they can for the $$$$$garchy that rules America. And you stand by like a "patriotic" stooge.
These are not very nice people on the extreme right-wing. They are loaded, financially, and they will do anything --ANYTHING-- to get into power. Lies, deceptions, distortions are no problem. Romney fought for Obamacare for Massachusetts when he was Governor of that state and did it to get re-elected. Now Romney talks about Obamacare as though it is some kind of lethal plague. And he lies about it over and over and over and over and over. Who is Mitt Romney? No one knows because Mitt himself doesn't know when he gets up in the morning what he should say or do to help him get elected.
Yes, sucker, you are being led down a primrose path by a charlatan. And the right-wing "gang" has told Paul Ryan what he must believe and say ...some if it directly in conflict to his prior positions.
You can continue to buy the snake oil, drink it, feel good about yourself, and then march like a zombie to what you are being told from the extreme right-wing. And truth has no place in that environment.
