Huckabee: Who Ordered the Establishment’s Hit on Akin?

Photo credit: Gage Skidmore

The deadline came and went on Tuesday for Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin to drop out over an incorrect comment he made about rape. The Republican establishment put unprecedented and intense pressure on Todd to quit, including five current and past Missouri Senators. But in an exclusive interview on my radio show, Akin said he’s “in this race to the end.” He said he admitted he misspoke and that his statement was not accurate, but he’d sincerely apologized. You can listen to the audio from that interview on my website.

The Party’s leaders have for reasons that aren’t rational, left him behind on the political battlefield, wounded and bleeding, a casualty of his self-inflicted, but not intentional wound. In a Party that supposedly stands for life, it was tragic to see the carefully orchestrated and systematic attack on a fellow Republican. Not for a moral failure or corruption or a criminal act, but for a misstatement which he contritely and utterly repudiated. I was shocked by GOP leaders and elected officials who rushed so quickly to end the political life of a candidate over a mistaken comment in an interview. This was a serious mistake, but it was blown out of proportion not by the left, but by Akin’s own Republican Party. Is this what the party really thinks of principled pro-life advocates? Do we forgive and forget the verbal gaffes of Republicans who are “conveniently pro-life” for political advantage, but crucify one who truly believes that every life is sacred?

Who ordered this “Code Red” on Akin? There were talking point memos sent from the National Republican Senatorial Committee suggesting language to urge Akin to drop out. Political consultants were ordered to stay away from Akin or lose future business with GOP committees. Operatives were recruited to set up a network of pastors to call Akin to urge him to get out. Money has changed hands to push him off the plank. It is disgraceful. From the spotlights of political offices and media perches, it may appear that the demand for Akin’s head is universal in the party. I assure you it is not. There is a vast, but mostly quiet army of people who have an innate sense of fairness and don’t like to see a fellow political pilgrim bullied. If Todd Akin loses the Senate seat, I will not blame Todd Akin. He made his mistake, but was man enough to admit it and apologize. I’m waiting for the apology from whoever the genius was on the high pedestals of our party who thought it wise to not only shoot our wounded, but run over him with tanks and trucks and then feed his body to the liberal wolves. It wasn’t just Todd Akin that was treated with contempt by the thinly veiled attack on Todd Akin. It was all the people who have faithfully knocked doors, made calls, and made sacrificial contributions to elect Republicans because we thought we were welcome in the party. Todd Akin owned his mistake. Who will step up and admit the effort being made to discredit Akin and apologize for the sleazy way it’s been handled?

I’ve always believed and still do, that if you don’t honor your friendships, you don’t honor yourself. And I consider Todd a friend. So I will join Todd as often as I can, in his fight for our Party’s pro-life policies, traditional marriage and our efforts to rein in the massive expansion of government under President Obama. Todd is being systematically scourged for one thing he said. Is that more important than what Claire McCaskill has DONE over her 6 years in the Senate? If you’d like to join the fight, and help defeat a Democrat Senator standing in the way of a conservative majority, I encourage you to join me. The party has decided it won’t help. In fact, it has decided that it will try to cut off the supply lines to Akin to pressure him to exit and let the party bosses overturn the voters of Missouri and pick their own candidate. If this can happen to Todd Akin, who is next?

    As usual, Huckabee the sellout does not get it. We do not need a Senator who 1) is so prideful he puts his own selfishness/ego ahead of this country 2) someone who is set back in the dark caves thinking men own women, women can’t make good decisions, good women don’t get pregnant from rape. Akin has been on this path since 1988 and 1991. His view of women is dark (look at his response to spousal abuse/rape in 1991).
    Akin did NOT have the majority. Akin DID have the Dems voting for him.
    Akin now thinks that he is in this race to save the GOP.
    He has substantiated everything the left says of the GOP relative to the war on women.
    Now, Akin and Huckabee are crying that it is the big bad establishment.
    NO – it is US the voters who are insulted, betrayed and angry.
    And for ONCE the RINO GOP actually listened to the outcry from THE PEOPLE. Shocking though it is.
    So stop bashing the RINO establishment for Akin’s situation. This time they were in the right. (fault them when they deserve to be faulted – give them credit when they do the right thing)
    Instead – fault whomever is behind Akin pushing him to stay in. Akin will be hurt, his reputation destroyed as he loses the MO Senator seat.

    • CSN

      0.8% of women get pregnant from rape. 49% of low income women claim rape which is 61 times higher than the national average. 98% of women scream rape who haven’t been raped in order to get a taxpayer funded abortion. Mr. Akin wasn’t entirely wrong. What are you, a shill for the NOW or NARAL?

      • That’s idiotic. Just as idiotic as what Akin said. Holy crap! I’m a Conservative and you people scare me. Akin has cost us the senate when we COULD have had a REFORMER with a successful record in his stead.

  • Randy Davis

    Thanks for posting this Joe. What
    conservatives really want in my view is a stand-alone leader like Todd
    Akin. Yes — his choice of the word “legitimate” rather than “actual” or
    “literal” was a mistake, but the orchestrated coordination of the GOP
    establishment snobs to push a good and decent conservative who is rock solid on all the fiscal and social issues over the cliff is unprecedented.

    The establishment realizes that thinking conservatives are beginning to
    get a glimpse behind the curtain and their jig may be slowly coming to
    an end.

    Everyone I know is solidly behind Akin. If Romney loses
    Missouri, it will have zero to do with Todd Akin and everything to do
    with Mitt Romney.

    I hope we see the day that conservatives will
    actually have a principled Presidential candidate to vote for like Mike
    Huckabee—not just a liberal/socialist to vote against. I know many
    people in Missouri – and it’s going to take a lot more than the
    conservative talking heads and establishment hacks “belleyAkin” for them
    to swallow the predictable bilge coming from Fox News and the other
    sources over the last 48 hours.

    Todd Akin is raising money like
    mad and surpassed his 100,000.00 goal (in less than 24 hours) I applaud
    Governor Huckabee for taking this courageous stand, and he will not be
    standing alone. Join with conservatives all across America by supporting
    Todd Akin. I can see Chick-fil-A and Missouri from my house.

    • CSN

      Governor Huckabee is one of the few people I will even listen to anymore. He’s done more for the Pro-Life causes than all the pundits put together. He’s also most kind to everyone who talks with him. I wish he would have been the nominee rather than Romney who is a Pro-Abortion Rights advocate.

  • Old_Conservative

    I fully agree with Governor Huckabee! When Joe Biden sticks both his feet in his mouth, or Obama is “mis-quoted” no one piles on them!! Why not do as the Democrats do and just move one!! I’m with Akin! I heard what he said and although I did not believe what he said was true, it was his own belief and he is entitled to it! Don’t forget, we still have Harry Reid because Republicans failed to support their candidate!!

    • Because the GOP keeps giving us democrats.

  • Wuzzy

    Akin is the text book defintion of out of touch with reality and would only be used as an example by the left as the perfect example of what is wrong with the republican party!! He has to be sent packing because he IS the perfect example of the old republican guard.
    OMG Romney picks the ex World Bank President for his National Security Council!!! He provided hundreds of millions of dollars for Iran during the sanctions!!! OMG The World Bankers are the problem not the solution, Romney’s just another figure head for the World Bank along with Obama we’re screwed!!

    • Sheath

      We will straighten Romney out after we get rid of the communists in positions of power and control in our government. Obama is more dangerous than Romney…the One Worlders would rather have Obama because he has no regard for the constitution — and its checks and balances on power in our country. They are trying to hook-up with Romney, though, in case, he becomes President.

    • CSN

      Right…Romney is a Globalist.

  • Wuzzy

    After reading the comments below supporting Akin I’m now more afraid of the religious right than I am of Obama! This country is in Deeeep do do

    • Yet you support Biden and Obama, who collectively have said more stupid things than all the other Vice Presidents and Presidents combined? Joe Biden doesn’t have two brain cells to rub together, yet the media would have us believe he’s the reincarnation of Solomon. President Obozo is a complete fraud; his entire life story is a lie and he has worked tirelessly and spent lavishly to keep anyone from finding out the truth about him. He is also a dithering, deceitful, showboater. Yes, this country is in deep doo-doo because of the massive national debt, onerous taxation, suffocating regulation, and anti-American energy and economic policies of the Marxist-in-Chief.

    • CSN

      Why because no one would state that only 0.8% of women get pregnant who are raped? That 98% of women who get a free taxpayer funded abortion, who have not been raped, but who claim rape, since it is covered by the Federal Government, are milking the system? That when you put in the clause “in case of rape” that anyone can make that claim without flinching or batting an eye, because no one will investigate the matter further? If they did, then many men who were not guilty of rape, because it was consensual, will be put in jail unjustly?

  • Brenda

    I am for Akin he had the balls to stand for what he belives yes he made a mistake but he has ask for forgiveness. I belive if we lose it is because the men in this country do not stand up for what they belive and are trying to control. I don’t need them Americans don’t need them.

    I think it sad some people believe if one stands for every life they are fanatic. What a sad statement for people everywhere. We have no care for human life.

  • m123s

    Good article. I was beginning to feel as if i nodded in the middle, and missed something. The GOPers make many boo boos, why is this one worthy of permanant time out; especially with the Senate in play. Akin is shallow-He should fit right in.

  • Sheath

    I got so mad listening to Hannity interview Akin and encourage him to get out of the race no matter what … for the good of the Party!! PHOEY! If Akin can be pressured out for mis-spoken words … then the republican (politically correct) establishment and the Left will continue to use that tactic on all conservatives running for office. Be strong and stand your ground conservatives.

    • CSN

      Call his program and tell him off, but don’t let the call-screener know you’re mad. Just say you want to make a statement about Mr. Akin.

  • CSN

    It was probably a combination of establishment people like Karl Rove, and Mitt Romney and Fox News…Sean Hannity literally was frothing at the mouth over Mr. Akin, and I was supposed to be able to talk with him on his program, but he wouldn’t take my call, after his call-screener said she wanted to call me the next day and talk with me. He left me on the line and didn’t let me speak saying he didn’t have enough time, when he was taking all kinds of calls from downright jerks who couldn’t even make a complete sentence. 0.8% of women get pregnant from Rape. Those are the stats from Human Life International. It was discovered through their research at HLI that those who receive a Free Taxpayer funded abortion will claim Rape so that their numbers jump to 49%. This is 61 times higher than the National Average, which means that 98% of women who claim they’ve been raped are lying in order to get a free taxpayer funded abortion. That is what I wanted to state on the air, but he wouldn’t let me, even though I was told they would call me and let me speak. Hannity is establishment now, so don’t listen to him if you want the truth anymore.

    • Guest

      @CSN – Yes, Hannity and other conservative talk show hosts repeat many statements that are held to be true ONLY because they are oft repeated. Worse yet. people tend to just take it all in, assuming it to be true. Life experience proves otherwise, but you only get that in the trenches.

  • wandamurline

    How do I join Hucabee and help this guy….I have lots of friends across America and will gladly get them involved. Remember, McCaskill voted FOR Obamacare….do you really want another six years of this witch? I’m in to help, how about you?

  • wandamurline

    Guys, if you go to read more of the story and click “HERE” above, it will take you to Huckabee’s page and there is a place where you can make a credit care contribution to Akin. I just did and hope that all of you will follow…..and I cannot wait until I get the next phone call from the GOP, I am going to give them a piece of my mind over this….if they want MY money, they can back OUR candidates and not the ones running for the Democraps.

  • reggiec

    Could it be that the elite GOP establishment saw an opportunity to force Aken out so he could be replaced with some RINO? I see a concerted effort by the GOP to minimise Conservative influence. Look what they are attempting to do to the legally ellected Ron Paul delegates.
    The establishment, elite GOP is feeling the pressure. Their bluster, name calling, primary shenanigans and dire warnings of disaster are evoked by fear of ghosts from the past reincarnated in the Tea party. Their fear is real, it is part of the liberal and go along to get long RINO elite cell structure; it has been embedded in their brains for decades. They have to be wetting their pants after the Kansas Republican Primary. Nearly every establishment Republican lost to a Conservative (17 out of 22).
    It is the fear that the American people will realize that our Founding Fathers really had it right. The modern liberal rhetoric is completely destroyed when stacked against the ideals of those grave yard ghosts in the form of our Founding Father’s spirits. The Liberal/RINO fear is that we have finally awakened and have had enough. They are beginning to realize their Waterloo will be the 2012 elections and they are whistling past the graveyard. Let them hear us ROAR in November! THIS IS OUR COUNTRY AND WE WANT IT BACK!!!
    It may take a while but vote Conservative for every level in government and make sure we bury them with a huge voter turnout this November.

    • Guest

      Thank you ReggieC You are absolutely correct. Our downfall within the party has been caused by people blindly voting for a Republican candidate without expecting his loyalty to both the cause of liberty and the traditional values that earned the U.S. its standing in the world.

  • docpsych34

    The only way to win this seat is to turn it around and make McCaskill and Obama defend their radical views on abortion. Obama is the most Radical president ever. He even helped block legislation making it illegal to use abortion for Race and Sex selection. The seat can be won but it will mean the Pro-Life forces will really have to get behind Akin. Where’s the Donate Button?

    • sylviaJ

      Amen on that where is THAT button bet the RNC hid it

  • CountryBoy

    The RNC is known for eating its own when they make mistakes, even when they are given a break byu the DNC.
    My First thought when the DNC added their support of “Gay Marriage” to their platform was;
    “HOW STUPID can they be??” Look at all of the VOTES that they just delivered to Republicans.
    It never dawned on me that the RNC would return-the-favor and DOUBLE DOWN on S.T.U.P.I.D..
    I see again that Republicans are more than capable of SNATCHING D.E.F.E.A.T. from the jaws of victory.
    S.T.U.P.I.D. — S.T.U.P.I.D. — S.T.U.P.I.D.
    Forget what Akin did…..what the RNC is just flat S.T.U.P.I.D. and may cost us everything. They have given the Democrats plenty of ammo to just say “SEE, ALL Republicans think like Akin”….and WE don’t.
    What IDIOT or group of IDIOTs decided that it was smart to add an abortion platform with NO-PROVISIONS for rape or incest?????
    Do these people not live in the REAL world where our wives, daughters and grand daughters are potential VICTIMS ???
    I am PRO-LIFE, and always have been, but I do NOT support that platform and never will.

    If she were a V.I.C.T.I.M of rape, would YOU S.E.N.T.E.N.C.E HER to RE-LIVING that moment every day, hour by hour, minute by minute, second by second for something that she was a V.I.C.T.I.M of.
    Will YOU RESENT HER and the child for being that VICTIM as time goes by???
    Because that is exactly what YOU will be doing…YOU will be SENTENCING HER, as a VICTIM to RE-LIVE that moment of TERROR for the rest of her life, an then to give birth to that child.
    Under the Geneva convention….THIS would be considered CRUEL and UNUSUSAL PUNISHMENT…while the rapist only gets the LIGHTER SENTENCE of a prison term.
    Has the RNC NO COMMOM SENSE??? This is sheer STUPIDITY and may very well cost us this election.

    WE must gather our fellow Republicans and CONVINCE them to FIX the platform before the convention or all may be lost.
    I just cannot believe that the RNC is that S.T.U.P.I.D but they have snatched DEFEAT from the jaws of Victory before…

    The RNC must STOP doubling down on S.T.U.P.I.D.
    The RNC must STOP doubling down on S.T.U.P.I.D.
    The RNC must STOP doubling down on S.T.U.P.I.D.
    The RNC must STOP doubling down on S.T.U.P.I.D.
    The RNC must STOP doubling down on S.T.U.P.I.D.

      Point of Fact: Jaycee Dugard was raped and impregnated twice by her attacker Phillip Garrido, yet she said that the birth of her two babies was the only thing that kept her sane in that insane situation of being his captive sex slave. Two wrongs don’t make a right. Most women die who are raped, because they fight off the attacker and he kills them, as two women I knew had happen to them. Another friend of mine was hospitalized for multiple injuries, but she resisted the rape, as did the two who were killed. If you don’t want your loved ones raped, then give them a weapon to stave off offenders, teach them self-defense (Karate’), and monitor their dates and who they are going out with. Don’t let them go alone after dark without a weapon of some type or a dog to accompany them or chaperone.

  • sylviaJ

    I think that this man is an honorable man and he misspoke, bavked up and saw his mistake and apologized for it, at least he has guts enough to admit he made a mistake. Now the Republican PARTY wants our vote.
    Who else are they wanting to assinate, just for the FUN of it. Yes I am a VOTER first but an INDEPENDANT, my feel for the REPUBLICAN PARTY as being my vote this November,is in limbo because they are SOUNDING just like the LIBERALS, which I detest because they SOLD THEIR SOULS TO THE DEVIL, I will vote YES but with a sad heart.

  • sylviaJ

    sorry for the typos but am very upset

  • It’s politics, Mike. You of all people should know that. Meaning, it doesn’t matter how sincere Akin is, the toothpaste is out of the tube and can never be put back in. His statements of not understanding the female reproductive system will not only be used as valuable ammunition for Claire McCaskill, but Debbie Schultz and Obama, who have early-on declared that the Republican party is waging some kind of war on women. Akin is now a liability, and other Republicans, who actually understand politics, are retreating from him. You can stand on principle, but principle doesn’t win elections. He’ll be spending the next 6 years sitting at home because he was principled enough to state how he felt, and Obama care will not get repealed because Harry Reid will still be the Majority Leader when McCaskill is reelected. Rasmussen is one of the most trusted polling companies in the country, and with Akin being 10 points behind a person who a week before was the most vulnerable Democrat in the Senate, doesn’t instill confidence. This is similar to Christine O’Donnell in 2010.

  • knowsit

    I am more motivated to ask for Rep. Aikin to retire, because rumor has it McCaskill supported his candidacy to the tune of $1.5 Mio. during the Primaries
    My understanding is the Senate Conservative Fund, organized by conservative Senate Anchor and TEA party icon Sen. Jim DeMint, was supporting Aikin’s opposition Sarah Steelman, as was Sarah Palin.
    This to me is an opportunity to correct what Democrats wanted, and RINOs in the RNC silently wished for: The sabotaging of a true Conservative Senator for 2013 and beyond.

  • Don’t Tread On Me

    I respect Mike Huckabee a lot, and I can forgive, but what came out of Akin’s mouth is NOT what I would view coherent thought and speech fitting of a national leader. It WASN’T just a slip of the tongue or scrambling a couple of words. And it makes me react….”Is this the best we’ve got? Really?” Someone with a brain that operates at that level is not going to be capable of grasping some of the big problems we’ve got to solve.

    And no, don’t say you’d rather have a stupid rubber stamp than Claire McCaskill. This country is not going to get back where it needs to get back to with Akin in a senate seat. And by him not recognizing that after being the root cause of all this, he’s obviously not looking out for a better America. Fixing this is much more difficult now.

    At this point, Akin is just looking out for Akin, not for America and Americans. Life is like a box of chocolates. Akin poked a hole in his bottom, and surprise, maple creme. (Apologies to the maple creme lovers out there. You too, Mike!

  • ltfbhh

    There is a very clear double standard which allows liberals to say almost anything without repercussions, but crucifies conservatives for even the slightest of intentional mistakes. I have heard many people admit this is so, but advise Akin to drop out because of it. The double standard exists only because we ALLOW it to exist. It is time for the quiet, peaceful conservative majority to rise up and say, “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH”. We will not stand for this double standard any more. Let’s crucify Biden every time he makes a gaffe. Let’s nail Obama every time we catch him in a lie. If the liberal media won’t stand up for the truth and fairness, then turn off the TV or change channels. When nobody watches or listens to them anymore, they will either change their ways or go out of business. This election is not only about kicking the liberal socialists out of office, it is also about getting the GOP to shape up and start doing the will of the people.

  • Huck, you are on the wrong side on this one. Regardless of Akin’s phrasing, or his apology, his misjudgment alone disqualifies his as a conservative Republican and indicates an unfitness to represent the Right in office. He should offer his services to write speeches for Biden.

  • buzzard

    Akin spoke accurately but made the mistake of using words only an intelligent person could understand. That, and that alone, was his mistake. All Democrats are either Sociopaths or morons. They either did not understand (moron) or deliberately misread his intent (sociopath) in order to make him say what he didn’t intend.

    • Akin said what he intended, the mistake was that he spoke the words out loud.

  • Shut the Huck up you stupid SOB! Huckabee, it’s not “the Establishment” who is going after this idiot Akin, it’s EVERYONE. This guy is too stupid to be a US Senator.

    Plus he’s turned THE most vulnerable democrat seat into the safest!

    Huckabee, you ALWAYS back these kind of scumbags. In 2010 you backed the candidate who was calling Nikki Haley a “slut”

    In Texas, you backed David Dewhurst, the most corrupt, despicable human being in politics today, over Ted Cruz.

    In Missouri, you backed this idiot Akin, who the DEMOCRATS spent almost $2 million pumping up, instead of a TRUE REFORMER Sarah Steelman

    In Florida, you backed John Mica, one of THE most corrupt weasels in DC over Sandy Adams, a PROVEN REFORMER.

    Huckabee, you are a liberal democrat, tax and spend, Big Government Nanny Stater, pretending to be a Republican. You are a cancer on the politics of this nation. Go away and shut the Huck up!

    The Republican leadership is in the hands of political cowards , the real reason the party has to struggle to maintain viability after every election . This leadership , including Rove , need to be identified and moved out so real conervative leadership can be installed and the party again become a party for the good of our nation instead of a party of self-preservation .

    I agree with you Governor…. I’d been wondering why our own party turned so NASTILY on one of our own…over a simple misspoken sentence yet they HID that our ( now Senator Blumenthal ) OPEnLY bragged for YEARS about having ‘served in Vietnam’ which was a TOTAL FABRICATIN! I say those of us with ANY sense of decency support Akin!

  • ddl

    Although I have come to admire Gov Huckabee and think he is sincere, I must disagree with him on this issue. Akin did not misspeak; misspeaking implies making some kind of erroneous statement while intending something else. He voiced a deeply held conviction that women are complicit in their own rapes. This idea dates back to the Renaissance and beyond, when women were mainly uneducated and unable to participate in intellectual discourse, and men put forth the idea that a pregnancy would only result from rape if a woman had an orgasm. This results in the mistaken assumption that women can control pregnancy, which is absurd and which is what Akin said, and that this control stems from whether or not they have had an orgasm while being raped. It allows such men to say that a woman enjoyed being raped, or the distilled version, “She asked for it.” When Akin said that women could control their bodies after “legitimate” rape (what makes any rape legitimate?–it is clearly against the law, or is it?) he was channeling this antiquated idea. Why would people want such a man to represent them? In light of his comments, why would anyone doubt the Democrats’ assertion that there is a war against women?

  • daylilyman

    I have to agree with Governor Huckabee.When we have a president who does not believe in saving the life of a child born alive as the product of a failed abortion how can we fault Mr.Akin for his misspoken statement.

  • JeromefromLayton

    When somebody does a royal “goof”, the “suits” get cold feet and look for cover, also known as running for the tall grass. What is their next step? Ask Mr. Miller how it came to be that Murkowksi (RINO-AK) came to be a Senator?

    • joewmiller

      Her write-in campaign was almost solely a result of almost all Republican Senators, with Senator Jim DeMint as the outstanding exception, voting to allow her to retain leadership after she lost the primary. This gave Murkowski something to promise the multi-billion dollar Alaska Native Corporations and Alaska federal contractors in exchange for their millions of independent expenditures and in-kind donations used in the race, flipping my campaign back to the underdog. And then there was the fraud. The Establishment’s response to my race is exactly what Gov. Huckabee is talking about.

    It seems that the high level Republicans in the RNC etc, have been using strong arm tactics on any Republican that they don’t personally agree with. Since when does anyone outside the district a candidate is running in think they have a right to over-rule the voters? That is a much bigger problem than anything Akin could have said, and even the public at large is becoming increasingly aware of this strangle hold on the elections by more liberal (notice I did not say “moderate”) Republicans. They can admonish a candidate if they really believe it is necessary, but this gang attack says more about them than it does him. And don’t think for one minute that the voters are not paying attention.
    Asking the question of “who” organized this attack is a good thing, but the people really have a right to know “who” by name. We don’t need the question without the answer.

  • it’s the liberal way when you see the weak point you attack it over and over with each one that attacks they get stronger and the more that attack the more come to the attack . shot of sounds like a bunch of wolfs don’t it?

  • I dont even like Huckabee, but Im wondering the same thing. Why are they taking his words out of context and attacking him so hard to force him out. What did he do? How did he go against their grain? Something tells me this is deeper then it looks.

  • CSN

    Another point to ponder….Statutory Rape isn’t really rape in the true sense of the word. It is when an underage girl, below the age of 18 or 17, becomes pregnant from a boyfriend who is over 18 years of age. That is not a true rape in the strict sense of the word rape, but the girl is covered by the law for a free abortion.
