VP BIDEN SILENT? Rep. Todd Akin "In the Race To Stay" ........RINOS and Liberals in Both Parties Stamp their feet and throw tantrum

Representative Todd Akin made stupid comments demonstrating his being a first time candidate for the U.S. Senate. He apologized and plans on being a better person.

You would think he was a serial killer but then even a would be serial killler gets less condemnation from political leaders now a days.

If Todd Akin was a liberal, he would get the vice-presidency of the United States. That's how they roll.

Defiant Akin says he's staying in race

Republicans are watching the clock as they wait for a defiant Todd Akin to drop out of the Missouri Senate race following controversial remarks he made about rape and abortion.

The six-term conservative congressman insists he's not quitting -- he said on former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee's radio show Tuesday afternoon that he's staying in the race.

"I haven't done anything morally or ethically wrong," Akin told Huckabee, saying the backlash against him "does seem like a little bit of an overreaction."

"We are going to continue this race for the U.S. Senate," Akin continued. "We believe taking this stand is going to strengthen our country, going to strengthen, ultimately, the Republican Party."

However, Akin is facing intense pressure from within his own party to drop out of the competitive race against Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill. He could easily do so -- before 5 p.m. Central Time today.

The congressman apologized on Monday and said he made a "very, very serious error."
