Skip to comments.Pelosi Hammers GOP on Limbaugh
Posted on 03/05/2012 1:05:46 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
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.
SPINE not “spin.” @#%#^$#@W#@$% keyboard.
I just love Pelosi Galore.
And they are stuck with the titular head of the Demonrat Party, big donor Bill (I throw the “C” word) Maher.
Fake outrage or downright lie?????
“Pelosi said in an interview with Washington Post blogger Greg Sargent. I wouldnt want those words repeated in my office.
Pelosi’s office late Thursday night......the heated, sometimes profane, exchanges were described as “ugly” by Democrats on both sides of the Capitol. Staff, kicked out in the hall, could hear the yelling, and Pelosi herself seemed a little abashed the next day
Open letter to Nancy Pelosi...
A woman who arranges for a person to pay another person to engage in a sex act is often called a Madam.
Go back to bed, slut!
The hypocrisy of the left is astounding.
Nope. Fluke is a Dem "Women's Rights Activist" (FemiNazi) plant.
And THIS is NOT about "birth control" it is a direct assault on Religious Freedom granted by God and stated in the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
It doesn't make sense. Pelosi set that false testimony up and now she's mad at the outcome?
He is a private citizen.
Congress has no authority over him.
So in her botox-addled mind Congress is supposed to publicly denounce a radio show host for some idiot voluntarily calling in and then voluntarily revealing her identity?
Ms. Fluke was not coerced into calling, and I highly doubt anyone specifically asked her to do so. Ms. Fluke was not obligated to identify herself on the air. If she wanted to attempt to convince Rush of her warped freakshow agenda, she could have said “I’m Suzy from Sheboygan” or “Priscilla from Pensacola” and said whatever stupid thing she wanted.
Ms. Fluke is a liberal activist pushing an agenda. This controversy is not worth anyone’s time other than to shame the idiot involved. To invoke Boehner to denounce Rush shows what a fool Ms. Pelosi is.
Pelosi is the biggest dirtbag in Congress.
Nan has nothing better to do? Shouldn't she be covering up something?
Nancy would have some credibility if she were to also call for Bill Maher’s removal from HBO... the immediate cancelation of Special Ed’s pMSNBC & radio gigs... etc etc ad infinitum.
Collapse is inevitable,but the Republic will be back with a vengeance.
Where was the outrage from the MSM?
That's right, they were in on the insult...laughing right along side the crud...
To hell with these clowns....maybe it's long past smash-mouth time.
“they were in on the insult...”
Nice job Nancy.
Right on the mark! They tolerate any liberal saying any THING, and are entirely two faced liars! Nancy is the Liar in Chief. OK maybe Obama is Liar in Chief, but Pelosi is the real Vice President then.
This is going to carry them but so far. They can’t continue to bash Rush AND support Maher. If obama were to stand on principle (which he won’t ‘cause he doesn’t have any), he’d return the million bucks to Bill Maher. Until he does, this is all meaningless theater.
