Obama Calls Akin’s Rape Comments ‘Offensive': VIDEO


President Obama today responded to Rep. Todd Akin's (R-MO) remarks about "legitimate rape" in a White House press conference today:

"Rape is rape. And the idea that we should be parsing and qualifying and slicing what types of rape we’re talking about doesn’t make sense to the American people and doesn’t make sense to me. What I think these comments do underscore is why we shouldn’t have a bunch of politicians – the majority of whom are men – making decisions about women’s health."


Meanwhile, the GOP seems to be turning against Akin, with even Romney suggesting that he should think about stepping down.
