Just look at Mitt Romney’s face when you watch this video. Watch his expression as Paul Ryan talks about taking away his Tax Loopholes.

Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO), his Party’s nominee for the Senate (where he’s running against Claire McCaskill) said THIS about women on Sunday.

From Steve Benen, Producer for the Rachel Maddow Show:
A poll from the Washington Post/ABC News, which asked respondents, “[O]verall, do you support or oppose the federal law making changes to the health care system?” I put together a chart showing how much the results changed in the wake of the recent Supreme Court ruling.
In April, before the decision, 39% expressed support for the Affordable Care Act, while a 53% majority disapproved of the law. Now, support has gone up eight points, but opposition has gone down six points.
When House Republicans vote for the 31st time tomorrow to kill the entirety of the law — that’s literally the number, not a figure exaggerated for humor — they’ll no doubt give a lot of speeches boasting that “the American people” are on their side. But public attitudes are far more complex than the right chooses to believe — support for the law has gone up and the provisions within the law remain quite popular. Less than a third of the country actually likes the Republican proposal to scrap every letter of the law.
MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow goes over the sad, sad, unfortunate history of how, early on in 2008, Fred Thompson…yeah, that Fred Thompson was seen as the GOP’s Frontrunner early in 2008. Yeah, Sleepy Fred wasn’t much interested in campaigning, but he did do one thing good for us, he got Mitt Romney to admit that he liked mandates.
