Romney on Akin, take 3

In a joint interview with New Hampshire's WMUR, Mitt Romney made clear (in case there was any doubt) that Todd Akin won't get any support from him.

"He should understand that his words with regards to rape are words that I can't defend, that we can't defend, and we can't defend him," he said. He echoed other Republicans in saying Akin "should spend 24 hours considering what will best help the country at this critical time."
