John McCain Does What Romney Wonít: DEMANDS APOLOGY from Richard Mourdock




JOHN McCAIN SHOWS UP MITT ROMNEY.......



Unlike Mitt Romney, John McCain wonít continue to support rape pregnancies are ďGodís willĒ Richard Mourdoch unless the Republican Senate candidate apologizes.



In an interview with CNNís Anderson Cooper tonight, Senator John McCain broke with Mitt Romney and said that he could not continue to support Indiana Senate Candidate Richard Mourdock unless he offers an apology for saying that pregnancy after rape is ďsomething that God intended to happen.Ē






TRANSCRIPT:

COOPER: Senator John McCain made some news on this when I asked him earlier if he still has Ė well, if he still supports Mourdock.

COOPER (on tape): Do you still count yourself in his corner?


MCCAIN (on tape): It depends on what he does. I think it depends on what he does. If he apologizes and says he misspoke and he was wrong and he asks the people to forgive him, then obviously Iíd be the first Ė you know, as I said, Iím not sure how big a mistakes that Iíve made. But, you know, in the years that Iíve been around, Iíve made a few, Anderson, and Iíve asked for peopleís understanding and forgiveness when I wonít ó when I own up to it. Itís when you donít own up to it when people will not believe you.

3. They never think infertility is Gods will. It's okay to use whatever drugs or science

to bend Gods will to have babies. Not okay to use anything to avoid getting pregnant.

4. What he should have said that would have actually had meaning was...

he would not support Romney/Ryan unless they demanded an apology from Mourdock. Saying he won't support Mourdock without an apology means exactly squat, imo. Unless McCain is a major donor funding ads for Mourdock, his threat of withdrawal of support is empty rhetoric, again imo.

5. Nice effort

But, a retraction and apology won't change the fact that he actually believes what he said. I presume he does, anyway, no one would say something that politically stupid unless they fully believed they were right.

9. Exactly....

He didn't mispeak...whatever the hell that means...he spoke his mind. Apology doesn't change that.

7. McCain knows this is taking the "pro-life" thing way too far

In 2008 he was careful to distance himself from the "no exceptions for rape" hatefulness, although he did not try to get it out of the party platform.

10. I always considered McCain....

One of the better republicans. (except for the Palin thing...but he's paid for that mistake) When are the normal republicans, the ones who just want lower taxes and less government going to realize that their party is gone and has been replaced with lunatics????

8. I give McCain credit for this.

It adds pressure on Romney and ups the ante... and it allows McCain to subtly put the screws to Romney too.

Pres. Obama just release a statement saying "rape is rape."

In the morning media cycle, the two names getting praise will be Obama and McCain. The two names getting heat will be Mourdock/Romney.

12. Even IF Mourdock apologizes no one should support him. He said what he meant.


IF he apologizes now all it will mean is that he is afraid of losing votes.

The Republican Party will still continue its War on Women and will still be trying to overturn Roe v Wade, passing laws regarding trans-vaginal ultrasounds, reducing access to birth control, etc.

14. Murdoch did not make a mistake

He spoke from the heart show that man meant what he said. He can't apologize because he really does believe that shit.

Women don't need him to apologize women just need to make sure he doesnt get elected

15. absolutely agree that there is no point to an apology. he meant every word he said, so what

good would an apology do? what he SHOULD apologize for is being a woman-hating, low-life cretin who is wasting oxygen and resources. I would say he should do the honourable thing, but that is something none of them seem to possess.
