McCain Withdraws Support Of Mourdock Until He's Satisfied By An Apology

Sen. John McCain proves once again why he is a thorn in the side of the Republican Party since he deliberately threw the 2008 presidential election to the unqualified, ineligible impostor from the most corrupt elements of the Chicago political machine. McCain, who just campaigned on behalf of Richard Mourdock's Senate candidacy earlier this week, announced to CNN's Anderson Cooper that he will no longer support Mourdock until he is satisfied with a public apology and admission by Mourdock that he misspoke in last night's Senate debate when he stated that a woman's pregnancy resulting from a forcible rape was "God's intention." If Republicans by some stroke of luck manage to win control of the Senate in this year's election, the leadership should make sure that McCain receives no committee chairmanship.

Ummm...apologize for the belief that human life - even if created during a criminal act - has value? I'm still ashamed I voted for Sen. McCain 4 years ago.

I would not have put it as bluntly as the candidate, but the idea that every conception is the will of God, is something that I strongly agree with.

The difficult decision of having an abortion is a choice that must be made by the pregnant woman. There will always be circumstances where this is a pragmatic choice for the pregnant woman and I do not think that the government should outlaw abortions.

The decision of government funding of an abortion is one that is in the hands of our legislators, and I would like to point out that both candidates have voted against government funding of abortion.

Mourdock has said nothing to apologize for, he has stated an opinion.

I really am disliking both the media, fair-weather republicans, and the democrats for trying to twist what Mourdock said.

Mourdock said “I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from God. And I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen,” .

No more, no less than life is a gift from God. He was not justifying rape at all.

From an AP headline (who can't even write an accurate misleading statement) "Obama pressures Romney on support for candidate who said rape from pregnancy is God's will." huh, are'nt you mixing up the cause and effect in your lie?

From President Obama " I don't think any male politicians should be making health care decisions for women," and "rape is rape". President Obama's statements are a cold, deliberate,calculated attempt to tie Mourdock's feelings about conception in order to scare woman voters.

I do not agree that abortion should be illegal, but I respect the absolute position of those who are against any abortion, regardless of the circumstances of the conception.

1) Whoever's running Mourdock's campaign, including debate prep, is an idiot. Mourdock has now created two sound-bites the Dems are hammering him with.

2) Mourdock needs to get himself in front of a lot of people, speaking and explaining this rape-as-God's-plan thing that the Democrats have created from his flub.

3) It's important for the Repubs that Mourdock win this election, in order to have more sway in the Senate.

4) McCain is a twit from the get-go, and given a situation where he could help Mourdock - hold press conferences with him, etc - he's choosing to be a big baby. What Mourdock said (or intended to say) is not toxic like what the Repub in MO said, so McCain need to pitch in, not run.

5) The one guy who could REALLY help is LUGAR. Joint speeches and pressers around the state. A pre-election-night joint TV show like Andy Jacobs Jr used to have. But Lugar can't be bothered, he'd rather piss all over the Repubs chances to take the Senate, then be of service to his party.
