White House enters controversy over Limbaugh comments (BAM-BAM PHONES FLUKE!)
Fox ^ | 3/2/12

Posted on 03/02/2012 1:36:58 PM PST by workerbee

President Obama injected himself Friday into the controversy over Rush Limbaugh's comments about a Georgetown University student who spoke to lawmakers about birth control, calling the 30-year-old woman to thank her for "exercising her right as a citizen to speak out."

But Limbaugh stood his ground, using his nationally syndicated radio show to mock Obama's call and charge Democrats with trying to exploit the controversy to make up for "failure on their decades-long abortion push."

"It just isn't the winning issue for them it used to be. ... If it were, this wouldn't be about contraception, this would be about abortion," Limbaugh said Friday.

The president called the student, Sandra Fluke, on Friday afternoon to express his disappointment in the "personal attacks" against her, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said.

Limbaugh, on his radio show earlier this week, had called Fluke a "slut" following her comments in favor of mandatory contraceptive coverage.

"The fact that our political discourse has become debased in many ways is bad enough. It is worse when it's directed at a private citizen who was simply expressing her views on a matter of public policy," Carney said.

You go, Rush! Why should the taxpayer have to enable the promiscuity of college students?

Let them or their boyfriends pay for the contraception.

I wish Carney would put a great big condom over his ugly face!

They are reacting too much, and looking like they missed their rabies vaccine. The Flukey chick is a Fluke, and not that many are interested... just a few toadys in the MSM. I think Rush is sick and tired of these sycophants put out for show like Flukey and her ilk, and let her have it.

Well now let’s see, we have Youtube evidence showing Clorox Leachman and David Letterman calling Sarah Palin a “slut” and then there was the guy who told Brisol her mom was “whore”.

Need we go on or is the double-standard firmly enough planted in liberal ground?

This is the same as requiring tax payers and businesses to pick up the tab for taxi service for a night of binge drinking. Its a public health issue. What if the person having a good time gets drunk (pregnant)...we should do something about that, right?/s

If it was Clinton phoning Fluke, it would be for a date. Omama is too metrosexual to go for sex or he is terrified of Michelle O. When I was in law school, I was broke and spent too much time studying to go looking for hook ups. This Fluke chick must not be on law review as she has too much time on her hands back.

So zero has enough time to phone this slut but Eric Holder couldn’t find the time to call Agent Terry’s family after he was killed?

Anyone else feel like they are living in bizzaro world?

It’s remarkable to see the serial misdirection going on for the 2012 election. Team Obama knows that it can’t possibly run on his record over the last 3 years. We therefore get deliberately manufactured stuff that the left-leaning MSM runs with. Occupy Wall Street, the introduction of the contraception question by George S. at the Repub debate in January, now the fact that Rush called this woman a “slut”, etc. We are going to be carpet-bombed with this in the fall.

Considering her admission, I wouldn’t be surprised if Bill Clinton calls her too.

There is nothing of substance to the Left. EVERYthing is manufactured: their victims, their “outrage”, their concern. It’s like the green screen behind the actor that disappears when the camera shuts off. Just a mirage.

Bizzaro World was the Clinton years. I think we’ve been in full-fledged Twilight Zone since this assclown came to power.

ABC news is pronouncing Fluke’s name as “Flock”
I think it should be pronounced “Fook”

Precisely!

What if we all want to have 3000 calorie a day diets, including Wagayu steaks and Maine lobsters, like Mrs. Obama?

Should the taxpayer susidize unhealthy eating habits, too?

The biggest story here is not that this woman apparently can't afford condoms, or that Rush called her a slut. The story here is that Obama felt compelled to reach out to this poor put-upon woman. It has reached theater-of-the-absurd levels.

How low will the president pander to garner votes?

ROFL... just read on another thread where Select Comfort and Sleep Train have ended their ads on Rush’s show over the “controversy.” TWO MATTRESS COMPANIES!! Oh, the irony is just too hilarious! I hope Rush has a field day with it on Monday.

Yet another crazy irony, a “fluke” is a parasite that can affect, infest and wreak havoc with all your bodily organs. Suck the life out of you, as it were.

Fluke = socialistdemocommie = LIBERAL

Seriously? Someone who holds titles of: President of the United States, Leader of the the free world, and Commander in Chief of the worlds greatest armed forces.... wants to somehow validate this left wing activist’s view that she somehow has the right to free contraceptives?

Stating the obvious - she doesn’t have such a right and she can nothing prevents her from buying whatever she needs to keep from producing more ignorant libtards.

Stating the really painfully obvious - Obama’s only accomplishment is working hard each day at embarassing himself and our country. The fact that he’s wading into this speaks volumes. Fool.

When did President Bammy apologize to the Koch brothers?

Better offer a free clinic too so she can clear up her sexually transmitted diseases.

Too late for the HPV vaccine.

“”exercising her right as a citizen to speak out.”

Bologna. It was more like,
“You did a great job. When this blows over there will
be a job for you in my administration. People like us
(frauds) need to stick together.”
