At a press conference livestreaming over at Politico right now, President Obama is taking a number of questions, including a few about Todd Akin's comments. Here's ThinkProgress's account:

Obama said, “The views expressed were offensive. Rape is rape. And the idea that we should be parsing and qualifying and slicing what types of rape we’re talking about doesn’t make sense to the American people.” “So what I think these comments do underscore is why we shouldn’t have a bunch of politicians a majority whom are men making health care decisions on behalf of women.”

That last sentence deserves to be engraved in the entrance to the Capitol building.
