Ok, ok already, we know that Todd Akin made a foolish remark, but we also know that there is no way he was actually trying to make rape “legitimate”. However, it speaks volumes about the left and their media lapdogs that they are willfully misconstruing his remarks and pretending that this is a major election year issue. Could that be because actually discussing the issues is so damning for the left? Criticizing a heretofore unknown politician must certainly be easier than defending Obama’s policies. Did I mention that jobless claims went up again?
But since the topic is rape, let’s go there.
My very old Webster’s New World Dictionary includes as the second definition of rape (the first definition is the obvious one) “the plundering (of a city, etc.), as in warfare”. Hmmm….interesting….sort of like what Obama is doing to the country. Someone needs to tell NOW. Maybe they will be more interested this time in Obama’s raping of America than they were with an actual rapist and serial sexual harasser, Bill Clinton, in the Oval Office. Bill Clinton, by the way, will be prominently featured at the Democratic convention. What kind of party does that? Or maybe NOW won’t care this time either since the ends justify the means if it promotes liberal policies, regardless of whom or what is raped or plundered.
As the Obama administration continues to ravage our economy, it is clear what the left is scared of and what the Obama reelection campaign is up to. It is too risky to them for there to be an actual debate about issues, because everything is working against them. Jobless claims are up, unemployment went up in 44 states with the latest report, the Congressional Budget Office has forecast a recession and unemployment rising to 9% if taxes are increased the way Obama proposes, and the federal budget deficit exceeded $ 1 trillion dollars for the fourth year in a row. That is quite a record for Obama to campaign on. Running a smear campaign must be more appealing than trying to defend that horrendous record.
Do you think Obama is starting to get desperate?
