Governor Christie “completely rejects” comments on rape and abortion made by an Indiana U.S. Senate candidate supported by the popular Republican, the governor’s spokesman said today.

The statement came after Democrats said Christie should call on Republican Richard Mourdock to drop out of the race. Christie is out of state campaigning in Massachusetts and New Hampshire today, but his spokesman, Michael Drewniak, said the governor disagrees with Mourdock’s view that abortion is wrong even in cases of rape.

“Governor Christie has always been clear about his position, and that includes exceptions in cases of rape, incest and life of a mother,” Drewniak said. “He completely rejects Richard Mourdock’s beliefs and views on this issue as expressed in last night’s debate.”

During a televised debate Tuesday night Mourdock said he’s against abortion in all cases.

1. He said that if woman becomes pregnant during a rape..

"...that's something God intended." This is creepy on several levels. One, apparently God speaks directly to Mourdock, as he does to Pat Robertson, James Dobson, Benny Hinn and the Crouch family. Two, apparently God has told these asshats to instruct the rest of us heathens about God's will. Three, the separation of church and state thing. Four, somebody is undoubtedly going to vote for this bunwad. Finally, this clown, along with so many others, is apparently not aware that the Roe vs. Wade decision is the current law, that is to say, abortion is legal.

3. Why is christie being asked

about a tea bagger running in Indiana? Has the corporate media decided christie is running in 2016? Are we going to have to tolerate the corporate media kissing his ass and pretending his opinions count during next 4 years?

8. He can see the future

And in that future there is NO president Romney! There are to many like Christie that sat this one out in order to have a better shot at the WH after president Obama was gone, and after president Obama and the democrats fix the mess Bush left this country in. If I am not mistaken Jeb Bush has been trying to be a "moderate" this year also since he too will be running in 2016!

5. Too bad your party's platform doesn't "completely reject" that idea, Christie,

b/c it says no abortion whatsoever, meaning ALL pregnancies are the same no matter how they came about.

All this faux outrage from Republicans is making me sick.

6. A spokesperson?

Was he too busy to make the comments himself? That seems a bit craven. I mean he doesn't seem bashful when he wants someone to shut-up.

12. Who asked him?

This was a STATE senator.

Or is Christie just establishing his positions for a 2016 run?

Yeah, I'm a cynic.

15. Muourdock is running for U.S. Senate. Governor's frequently chime in when issues come up.


Sen Scott Brown (R-MA) issued a statement too.

Probably lots of folks that want to get their name in the news will be speaking up throughout the day.

19. Oh, my mistake

I thought he was a state senator.

Good that at least a few of them are speaking out. But too many are silent.

17. Not really buying this guy's future in their party anyway

He won't go much higher, and would just embarrass himself going for President.
