1. he's afraid the more people talk about Akin the more they learn about Ryan's

radical views.

There’s Rape, and Then There’s…‘Forcible Rape’
GOP veep candidate Paul Ryan should probably have consulted a dictionary before laying out the conditions for a No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, which he cosponsored with Akin himself in 2011. The bill said taxpayer dollars could only go toward aborting pregnancies that resulted from “forcible rape”... apparently it’s important to distinguish between regular old rape and “forcible rape.” The meaning of the term was never clearly defined and ultimately removed from the bill.

4. Yup. Ryan dosen't want

people making the connection with just exactly how similar their views are on the topic. Oops, too late! And just in time for the convention.
By choosing Ryan, Mittens now owns this despicable opinion as well.

2. Heard this on radio news about an hour ago also

LOL! They so want him gone. But if I know Todd, he's staying in.

3. Watching Ed show

And the clip of Ryan and his mother. Ryan says she paid into it. Did his mother work, or was she a stay at home mom? She never paid into it if she never worked a "job". Now, I don't begrudge widows who raised a family and never held a "job". But Ryan would. If you were a stay at home mother, why should you get anything from the government would be the GOP policy.

I believe widows do deserve Medicare no matter what their life time payments were. And I said "jobs" like that, because some look at being a mother not a job. It is a job.

5. But why draw attention to it then?

By asking him to withdraw, Ryan is having a big red flag. Look at me and Akin!!!
