    I think I am stunned there is anyone so ignorant left in this country. If he had just left it at "The punishment for the rape should be on the rapist, not on the child," he would have been fine, but no, he had to be a flipping moron.

    It just boggles the mind that these people can get as far as they have. The really sad part is that this idiot believed what he said. There was no slip of the tongue - this wasn't inadvertent. He meant to say what he said. :shocked:

    Biden is another moron.

    Hell, take the Prez off the tele-prompter and he's very close to speaking Ebonics. Romney should demand Obama's college transcripts - including applications for student loans, grants, or scholarships (historical trail) in exchange for his (Romney's) tax returns. That would end all call for either.

    There are many like he. Some are stupid, the scarier ones are the racists (of any color) who attempt rationalize their stupidity.

    *bites tongue on abortion issue* I really, really, and I mean REALLY hate it when somebody says something stupid and then they have a speech to give that was obviously written by a PR representative.

    The racists don't surprise me. Or the liberals. I'm just stunned that with thirty-plus years of the public discussion of abortion and of rape, that the "women don't get pregnant that way" argument still exists in any form.

    The speed that information is available today has apparently not changed the glacial slowness of some people's minds.

    When I hear super stupid from both sides, I sometimes wonder if there is any hope remaining.

    I wouldn't start nailing the coffin shut on his chances yet but he sure didn't help his campaign any. Okay, maybe just a few nails.

    He is an idiot and should not be sent to Washington.

    The difference here is that the Pubs will denounce his clueless remarks whereas the Dems always circle the wagons around all the racists and bigots that have a D after their name. Our country would be truly great if each club would be quick to remove these people from their ranks. Too bad there are so many that live for party over country.

    I have known him for since he was in the MO House. He did not misspeak, that is how crazy he is. Sicking...

    Any random person in the phonebook could have won this race, he had to open his mouth and likely cost us control of the US Senate.

    Given the level of ignorance that he displayed with his comments, I can honestly say this is one race I wouldn't mind seeing the Democrats win.

    I think he prolly cooked his own goose with his stupid comment.

    Getting the Senate back was going to be a stretch, even with the defeat of McCaskill; so I I'm not sure he can be credited for that. However, he can be credited with libtard McCaskill staying in another 6 years!! :steamed:

    Yes - I was afraid I'd have to explain this to someone. Sorry. :whistling:

    The Prez is as capable as anyone of sticking his foot in his mouf - as soon as he goes off prompter. The part of his transcripts goes to the same point - I don't think he's as intelligent as the press would have us believe (speaking off prompter indicates this). I would like to see his Harvard transcripts. By asking for them, Romney could shut him up about his (Romney's) tax returns. It all goes back to the fact that the Prez is not a wiz off prompter.

    Are we clear? :wavey:
