‘Legitimate rape’? Nude bathing? House GOP majority in jeopardy!

And now comes another Republican with another comment offensive to women. In my last column about Paul Ryan's war on women, I emphasize the damage to women from Republican opposition to women's pay equity, Social Security and Medicare. Now we have Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) making deeply offensive comments about "legitimate rape,” following House Republican opposition to House Democratic efforts to protect women from violence. And now we have a large group of House Republicans embarrassing our nation and their party in a trip to Israel, including, in behavior that should be reprimanded by every conservative Christian, nude bathing!

Republicans have a big problem with women.

Paul Ryan has one of the worst records in Congress regarding women's issues. Mitt Romney agrees with Ryan's wrongs on these matters and adds his vehement attacks against Planned Parenthood. Todd Akin takes this Republican problem with women to new heights of offensiveness.

These are among the many reasons to reelect Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), who is an excellent senator and voice for working men, working women and family farmers. These among the many reasons to return the Speaker's gavel to Democrats and to reelect President Obama.

Women have a big problem with Republicans.

The House Republican majority is now very much in jeopardy.
