Clinton rape scandal resurfaces in Akin controversy: The McCaskill-Clinton videos.
(Page 7 of 8)
And Obama and company are going to run a campaign saying Romney, Ryan and Akin are “dangerous” to women?
Whatever Akin’s flaws in this episode — well discussed and agreed to here — never has he been accused of actually raping a woman. Akins is more than correct to insist that he represents a different worldview than McCaskill and her liberal allies.
Doubtless the Akin campaign will now recall this interesting October 2006 appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press when then-host Tim Russert had this exchange with McCaskill:
MR. RUSSERT: You’re having Bill Clinton come in to raise money for you. Do you think Bill Clinton was a great president?
MS. McCASKILL: I do. I think — I have a lot of problems with some of his, his, his personal issues. I said at…
MR. RUSSERT: But do you…
MS. McCASKILL: I said at the time, “I think he’s been a great leader, but I don’t want my daughter near him.”
So McCaskill didn’t want her daughter near the man Congressman Shays said he believed to have raped Juanita Broaddrick — but she would have that same man come to Missouri and raise money for her? Yes, that’s exactly what she said.
Can you say “cultural acceptance of sexual force.”
Or, more colorfully put, McCaskill was essentially saying to Juanita Broaddrick, in the fashion of her famous fundraiser, ‘You better put some ice on that.’. Then, having helped along the “cultural acceptance of sexual force” — McCaskill took the money and ran.
And these people think Romney, Ryan and Akin are “dangerous to women”?
What is the difference between Todd Akin and Claire McCaskill? Between Todd Akin and Bill Clinton? Between Todd Akin and Barack Obama?
Akin used the wrong words — and apologized for those words.
Bill Clinton stands “very credibly” accused of rape.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
