House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Republicans are now stuck being associated with conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh calling a Georgetown law student a slut.
Democrats have been hammering Limbaugh and Republicans since the radio host criticized Sandra Fluke, the student, for stressing the importance of birth control during a congressional hearing on President Obamas contraceptive mandate.
Limbaugh called Fluke a slut and a prostitute because he said she was effectively asking taxpayers for money for contraception.
On Thursday, Democrats urged House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to publicly denounce Limbaughs statement.
They wont disassociate themselves from it. Theyre tattooed with that, Pelosi said in an interview with Washington Post blogger Greg Sargent. I wouldnt want those words repeated in my office.
In the same interview, Pelosi also went after Republicans for their opposition to the contraception mandate, which requires employers to provide contraception in their healthcare plans without a co-pay or deductible.
Churches and houses of worship are exempt from the mandate, and the White House has offered an accommodation for groups affiliated with religious institutions, such as Catholic hospitals. Those entities do not have to provide contraception, but their employees must be able to get the contraception through the employers insurer.
They dont believe in a government role except when it comes to women exercising her conscience on an issue like that, Pelosi said. People who choose to marry and find comfort with each other they decide that government should step in there. But clean air, clean water, food safety, public safety, public education, public health, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security they want to end the government role.
A day earlier, the Senate tabled legislation that would allow employers to opt out of the mandate if they oppose it on religious or moral grounds.
The White House has not deciphered how its accommodation will work in cases when the faith-based institution and the insurer are one in the same.
It also shows they’ve got nothing else
Go away. SLUT!
This is all about politics and nothing else.
They could not be more transparent
Sure Nancy - call me when you’ve denounced Bill Maher, David Letterman and Ed Schutlz. Until then, try to keep your botoxed mouth shut.
Excommunicate this witch.
Princess Nancy’s upset because Rush didn’t call her a slut. She knows what a slut is, because there is one looking back at her each time she looks in a mirror!
Ok, now they are overreaching..
It does. They have nothing else to run on. Every thing identified as reasons to reelect Obama are paper thin. ‘Saving’ GM? Leaving the taxpayers on the hook for a still failed company isn’t saving anything. Plus, the pause in Volt production is a political weapon to wield against this guy. Job growth? We are sitting in the worst position in nearly a century in terms of employment, family income, and standard of living.
Anyone who has attained the position of Speaker of the House, and then tells the American people in all seriousness that we must pass the bill so we can find out whats in it, is not someone that American voters should ever take seriously about anything.
There is a reason why “MINORITY” is in your title, you stupid slut.
You know, your average MSM watching voter.
If they push too far with this, someone might actually look into Fluke's background and ties to liberal/dem groups.
That’s fine. It reflects that they have nothing to offer this country, and nothing better to do than to take on a talk-show host.
The Botox BITCH speaks!
The GOP has the power to shut Pelousi down if they would use it. God knows she kept her boot on the throat of the GOP enough when she was in charge.
Limbaugh isn’t an elected official and the GOP needs to clearly state that and refuse to acknowledge the issue any further.
