In a last ditch attempt to get Todd Akin to quit the race, Romney specifically calls for him to drop out:
"As I said yesterday, Todd Akin's comments were offensive and wrong and he should very seriously consider what course would be in the best interest of our country," Romney said in a statement. "Today, his fellow Missourians urged him to step aside, and I think he should accept their counsel and exit the Senate race," Romney said.
But, befitting his wimpy character, he phrases his call as merely echoing the demands of "fellow Missourians":
Rush Limbaugh said Tuesday that Rep. Todd Akin’s comments on rape and pregnancy were “stupid” and suggested the Missouri Republican could help in “saving this country” by ending his race for Senate.
