#MOSen: Ann Wagner Strikes the Right Tone

Ann WagnerAnn Wagner's statement about Todd Akin's "legitimate rape" gaffe strikes the perfect tone:
As a staunch defender of the unborn I believe life begins at conception. Todd Akin's comments about rape were wrong and indefensible. Todd has apologized and understands he was wrong in what he said.  It is now up to Missouri voters to decide whether they accept his apology. Our country is at a crossroads and we are facing serious issues brought on by the overreach of government in our lives, out-of-control spending and debt, and an environment that does not promote job creation and economic prosperity. I have been running for Congress in Missouri's 2nd District for 16 months and will continue to work hard to earn the trust and confidence of every voter.
She articulates the widely held conservative view that "life begins at conception." Then she condemns Akin's comments and acknowledges his apology. She sees that from here on out, the decision of US Senator from Missouri rests with Show Me state voters. From there she shifts to the pocketbook issues that will drive this election.

I will vote for Akin on November 6. I would vote for Wagner, but she's not in my district. I will not vote for any RINO who jumped on the bash Akin bandwagon as it is now painfully obvious that they only oppose abortion except when they favor it. Correct was to acknowledge that Akin fumbled the ball then line up and play even harder to overcome it and win the game. Why is it that only the kommies gather around their gaffe prone candidates, but the cowardly RINOs fall into the progressive pit every time?

Zotta's Perspective said...

First off, I would NOT take any advice from John McLame on how to beat Barack Hussein Obama. The article writes,"Romney said the controversy over Akin "hurts our party and I think is damaging to women." Akin may have said some inaccurate comments about rape, however his main focus is on saving the lives of unborn babies.Whereas, Obama supports late term partial-birth abortion and infanticide, i.e. Obama does NOT care about babies. Romney may be better served to focus on those characteristics and point out the difference between Obama's and Akin's position regarding unborn babies. Furthermore, Romney needs to realize that Obama is an evil radical, who wants to "transform or recreate" America.
