Who does Mitt Romney think he is? Seriously, who is he? Is he the ultra conservative presented to us during the primaries? The conservative moderate during the last debate, or the liberal conservative that participated in an interview with the Des Moines Register earlier this week?
Does Romney want to win the presidency? It is a valid question after he attempted to use an overseas tragedy for political gain last week and has now insulted and dismissed 47% of the nation’s population.
Last Sunday, Missouri Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin said during an interview while discussing the issue of abortion “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”
Besides the fact that this is scientifically false, one of the most shocking aspects of this outlandish quote is that it’s far from the first time a Republican representative has said such a thing.
