March 2, 2012 Obama Calls Law Student Embroiled in Birth-Control Debate By JONATHAN WEISMAN President Obama on Friday called a Georgetown University law student who has publicly backed the administrations regulations mandating that employer-provided insurance plans offer free contraceptives, thanking her for standing firm against withering criticism and an escalating battle between Democrats and Rush Limbaugh.
The president made the call just before Sandra Fluke, who last month supported Mr. Obamas policy in informal testimony on Capitol Hill, was to appear on MSNBC.
What was really personal for me was he said to tell my parents that they should be proud, she told Andrea Mitchell, the host of the cable news program.
The showdown between Ms. Fluke and Mr. Limbaugh is turning into a major battle between Democratic and Republican lawmakers. Under heavy pressure from Democratic leaders, House Speaker John A. Boehner of Ohio on Friday condemned as inappropriate the comments Mr. Limbaugh made earlier this week. The conservative talk show host called Ms. Fluke a slut and a prostitute for supporting Mr. Obamas regulations, even if the mandate might violate an employers religious beliefs.
But Mr. Boehner, a Republican, also denounced Democratic fund-raising efforts that have stemmed from the turn of events.
The speaker obviously believes the use of those words was inappropriate, as is trying to raise money off the situation, Michael Steel, Mr. Boehners spokesman, said Friday.

Maybe he wanted a date?
That is just so wrong. Too bad he and Mooshell have two daughters.
This President will stoop low to any level to pander to the NARAL, Planned Parenthood, and EMILY’s LIST vote.
A $1000 a year for birth control pills.............WOW are they made of gold?
To the slut: If the condems fit, you can’t ACQUIT!
Amazing what the boy king is proud of! Leaching off the government control is what he is proud of. NOTHING ELSE pleases him more than having control of this destroyed country.
He shows his true colors more and more each day.
What was really personal for me was he said to tell my parents that they should be proud,
Wait a minute! If she is 26 or under, why aren’t those parents keeping her on their policy and providing her birth control?????
Obama knows that this “woman” is not married and is aware that she is having premarital sex and he calls her to support her not just having pepremarital sex, but using birth control that will kill any babies she might conceive.
He condones both premarital sex and baby murder.
Of course he’s embroiled in it. He started it.
Obamao probably told her that if she went to bat for the other team, she wouldn’t have any financial hardship.
NYT revising history again. She said $3000.
Others point out that you can get then for $9/months at Target.
You make an excellent point!

“Parents, if your daughter went before a congressional hearing and said that she was having so much sex, she was going broke buying contraceptives, then advocated for a welfare program to cover her lifestyle, would you be proud?”
BO should relate well to skanks. Just look at what he had for a mother. A world-ban**ng whatever who had him without a father, so go the reasons for Bo’s state of mental ineptitude.
Actual cost for pills is about $10/month. Besides being a skank, the wench is a liar too.
98% of bar room skanks who will bang a stranger vote democrat.
99% of all democrats believe that by sleeping with strangers they advance progress and give back to the community.
Republicans spread freedom and democracy.
Democrats spread STDs.
