    So every time Biden says something stupid you agree he speaks for the entire democratic party? Or is that different?

    As well, they both sponsored two bills in Congress and have nearly identical beliefs regarding rape, incest.....women's rights (or lack thereof) in general.

    His use of the term "legitimate rape" telegraphs his opinion about women and sexuality as much as it addresses the issue of abortion.

    As opposed to what? False rape?

    Yeah, I think that was his point.

    Insulting to rape victims, do you think?

    But of course! It's right there in their platform. The Republican Platform - No abortions, even in the case of rape and incest.

    As expected, your OP is misleading. Ryan has not endorsed Akin...never did. He simply praised his leadership ability.

    That does not mean that he agrees with every opinion Akin holds.

    From your link:

    "Akin touted Ryan’s praise as a major asset, prompting his GOP primary rivals to accuse Akin of misleading by implying Ryan had endorsed him in the race. Ryan’s spokesman quickly clarified at the time that he merely was “applauding Rep. Akin’s work on the House Budget Committee,” not giving his official backing, according to Politico."

    You are a deceptive person. That is a trait typical of most liberals.
