Skip to comments.White House enters controversy over Limbaugh comments (BAM-BAM PHONES FLUKE!)
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.

Paging Joe The Plumber....
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
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.
>>It is worse when it’s directed at a private citizen who was simply expressing her views on a matter of public policy...
Private citizen. You mean like Sarah Palin?
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.
Maybe Obummer will set up a meeting over some beers between Rush and Fkuke .
Bizzaro World was the Clinton years. I think we’ve been in full-fledged Twilight Zone since this assclown came to power.
Hey, Carney...you fool....RUSH speaks for MILLIONS of us out here....and he’s making fun of the debasement of our political discourse the the DEMS continually bring to the table!!!
ABC news is pronouncing Fluke’s name as “Flock”
I think it should be pronounced “Fook”
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?
How low will the president pander to garner votes?
