Come On Mike: Former Presidential Candidate Huckabee Claims “‘Forcible Rapes Create ‘Extraordinary’ People”

- By Bossip Staff

In what we’d call the worst defense for Todd Akin to-date, Mike Huckabee spit some ridic statements. Standing by the side of the Republican candidate, former Presidential runner-up Mike Huckabee tried to explain why Women shouldn’t have an abortion…even if the conception of their unborn child was created because of rape!

Huckabee used his syndicated radio program Monday to give the embattled candidate a safe venue to express remorse and his determination to remain in the race. Huckabee also took the opportunity to cast the best possible light on Akin’s awkward position. The former Arkansas governor and onetime GOP presidential contender suggested a couple of cases in which he suggested that rapes, though “horrible tragedies,” had produced admirable human beings.

“Ethel Waters, for example, was the result of a forcible rape,” Huckabee said of the late American gospel singer. One-time presidential candidate Huckabee added: “I used to work for James Robison back in the 1970s, he leads a large Christian organization. He, himself, was the result of a forcible rape. And so I know it happens, and yet even from those horrible, horrible tragedies of rape, which are inexcusable and indefensible, life has come and sometimes, you know, those people are able to do extraordinary things.”

We think this fool needs to check himself so he can come correct on Women’s Issues. We all have a choice but it seems they (repubs) seem to forget that we can make decisions for ourselves.
