    Well, yes, it can. Wait until world realizes that this is part of a central plank in the 2012 GOP campaign platform. They will be completely convinced that at least half the people in the USA are totally bonkers.

    This comment means, of course, that obama isn't really driving us into a new recession.

    Only tangentially, if at all.

    Akin is connected to Ryan, by their legislation that DOES make a distinction for "forceable" rape. Ryan, of course is connected to Mitt.

    That's really about it.

    You can say that the GOP platform includes a pro-life plank that says that abortion should be outlawed in all situations, but that fails for two reasons:

    1. It has nothing to do with the "legitimate rape" comments
    2. The GOP has already said that it has differences in its platform from what Mitt is running on.

    So..basically partisan mudslinging.

    and what a women were to do if physiologically capable is not the same as the decision now made capable via technology ... or the decision is better made for them by the Republican party.

    What does this have to do with Romney's candidacy for the Presedent of the US. This is a central plank in the GOP campaign platform for 2012. Only by disavowing that plank can he state that it has nothing to do with him. His silence on that plank is tacit approval of the plank.
