Mitt Romney calls for Rep. Akin to drop out
Rep. Akin reaffirmed his decision to stay in the Missouri U.S. Senate race twice today, even as more and more Republicans were calling for him to step aside after shockingly stupid remarks made about rape.
Now, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney is calling for him to drop out.

Twitter reacts quickly.
The move to toss Akin overboard kicks up a notch. Mitt Romney adds his voice to the growing chorus…

The timing of Romney's call for Akin to quit is a little curious. Deal in place for him to drop out and make Mitt look like the catalyst?

Prediction: With a half-hour before the deadline, Romney will call upon Akin again, uttering his first use of "motherf*****."
