Obama on Mourdock comments: "Rape is rape. It's a crime"

From McClatchy's Bill Douglas, traveling with President Barack Obama:
The president taped "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" earlier Wednesday, and was asked about Indiana Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock's controversial remarks about rape and abortion.
"Rape is rape. It's a crime," Obama said. "I don't know how these come up with these ideas...rape is rape. It is a crime.
"These various distinctions about rape don't make too much sense to me, don't make any sense to me." and added that the remarks illustrate why it should not be left to only men to make decisions on women's issues.

If I belief Abortion is killing, just as bad as Herod and Hitler killing the
innocent, I believe you will have no problem killing me and anyone else who does not believe the way you do.
Awake up America, you are on the "abnominbal list" if you don't agree with him.
