Neil Cavuto interviewed Todd Akin on Fox News. Cavuto wished to know if, after being trashed and abandoned by the GOP establishment, Akin would be able to cooperate with the Republican team, and not be angry or “harbor any kind of ill will.”
Akin makes it clear he would continue his conservatives voting, which is of course a phenomenon independent of the personal attacks from some individual GOP members. His response also intimates that it is those who have savaged him as self-seeking who are actually making it about him personally, not him: “As I said, it’s not about me. It’s about doing what is right for our country. You take a look at where we are issues wise.”
He extends an path to forgiveness: “I’m pretty much a person that forgives someone when I’m asked . . . [if] somebody wants to be forgiven.”
The only question is, will his attackers ever ask for forgiveness?
