Obama took it to the White House press room today and gave 20 minutes of his time to reporters.You know they were all dying to ask him his opinion on the stupid comments Rep. Todd Akin made this weekend, and the President did not disappoint.
“The views expressed were offensive. Rape is rape. And the idea that we should be parsing and qualifying and slicing what types of rape we are talking about doesn’t make sense to the American people and certainly doesn’t make sense to me. So what I think these comments do underscore is why we shouldn’t have a bunch of politicians, a majority of whom are men, making health care decisions on behalf of women.”
Well Damn. Thank you Mr. President. Always able to eloquently call people out on their idiocy.
