Skip to comments.Boehner calls Limbaugh remarks "inappropriate"
Posted on 03/02/2012 9:31:17 AM PST by John W
House Speaker John Boehner distanced himself on Friday from Rush Limbaugh, calling the conservative radio host's words toward a women's rights advocate "inappropriate."
Amid a growing media firestorm over comments Wednesday by Limbaugh toward Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown Law student who testified before a Democratic panel on the use of contraception, Washington's top Republicans said through a spokesman that Limbaugh was wrong.
"The speaker obviously believes the use of those words was inappropriate, as is trying to raise money off the situation," Boehner spokesman Michael Steel said in a statement.

Well Mr Speaker,don’t cry about it.
Boehner is such a pussy.
Well, that didn’t take long.
Why say anything about it at all, Boner?
If Boehner only had a spine.
“Boehner is such a pussy.”
Wayyyyyyy too much credit.
So Boehner is angry because Nancy Pelosi was offended by Limbaugh? What’s new about that? Nancy Pelosi STAYS offended by Limbaugh. Yeah, Limbaugh’s words might have been harsh, but he was just positing the notion that Fluke thinks someone else should pay for her birth control, so she can have sex as much as she wants. I guess that’s kind of like paying her to have sex. Question is, why shouldn’t she pay for her own?
i’m on hold with Boehner’s office now...I want to ask them where all the comments about “inappropriateness” was when you and i were referred to as “Tea Baggers:
DOES the speaker have an opinion on the little Miss Fluke’s remarks?
Best description of Boner I have read here. Rectal Wart
Why do the House Republicans keep re-electing this loser? It’s time for Boner to go.
Remember people who want to be someone’s friend so bad that they take constant abuse? That’s the GOP.
John Boehner is pretty much the epitome of everything that is screwed up and worthless about what is the modern day Republican Party...his cowardice and inability to frame any political issue in a conservative way is pathetic.
God has a plan for all of us, but damn does it hurt when the fighters like Andrew Breitbart are taken from us too soon and gutless wonders like Boehner and the rest of his ilk in the Republican party screw us over for years in Washington DC.
We live in a world where “leaders” respond to what a talk show host does. It’s supposed to be the other way around.
Epic cave. What a wuss. Rush is right.
The promiscuous behavior is inappropriate.
"Man up you pussy"
No sir,what is innapropriate is for you to call the truth innapropriate. Get a spine and stand for right or quit and go home,
Any MSM coverage about what Bill Maher just called Sara Palin? [Rhetorical question.]
doofus is playing right into Dems attempt to pump the whole “contraceptive” issue up.
Boehnor has sure turned out to be quite a gutless punk.
Local radio station WNIS 790 AM, Norfolk VA, just distanced themselves from anything Rush is and has said. Probably because of the Georgetown issue. Never heard them do that before.
Demanding that others pay for your chosen behaviors is also inappropriate.
Does that speaker have an opinion on Anderson Cooper’s labelling of tea partiers as “teabaggers”??
How about the vice president’s use of the word “terrorists” against american citizens who consider themselves tea party?
Did Limbaugh lie? No he did not.
While I certainly agree with Rush on this issue I must say that he either needs to get back on the “Obama is an economic disaster” track and off the social issues or stop critizing the MSM for causing us to lose focus.
IMHO, Rush is a major contributer to that loss of focus on economic issues. He is spending way, way too much time on the social issue themes that only help Obama. It’s amazing to me that Rush would fall into such an obvious trap - and one that he clearly recognizes. It’s time to stop digging. The hole is deep enough already.
Excellent job lol! (with the Patton pic being the best one!)
more like the other organ....
the receiving one.
Oh Jeez ( same name ) Not this ***t again....
Again it is time for us to start anew...
I got to see a picture of a Shelby Cobra flattened by a Crain Boom. Dummies Restored it, it should have been scrapped, some things in life are not worth fixing.
Ergo the GOP
Boehner >> you are one GUTLESS servile puke !
Get him out of there, get him out of there! Get Bachmann in there (or anyone with a spine).
Promisicuous is too polite for the slut. She & her friends sound like bitches in heat shoving their tails into any man’s face that is available. It is beyond disgusting. They are an utter disgrace.
That's inappropriate. /sarc
Rush Limbaugh’s job is not to get Republicans elected. His job is to entertain his audience by holding up a mirror to the crimes, follies and misfortunes of Liberalism. At this he has no peer.
Not because he's not correct, but more because he seems to have a knack for undermining his own argument with some unfortunate term or use of language.
He made a brilliant political point yesterday documenting how this women was aware of the rules before enrolling in this particular college. Her goal was to change existing rules to conform to her agenda. He exposed her as anti-Catholic feminist activist trying to disguise herself as just a concerned female student looking out for her fellow students. She's a fraud. And he completely negated his logical cogent point by suggesting she video tape her sexual encounters and post them for our enjoyment. I could only shake my head.
And when the civil war comes (unfortunately I’m more convinced every day) Boehner will be sitting as far away from the front tucked in a ball and weeping about how all of these mean conservatives caused this while the whole time he’s the one who could have tried to stop it.
Maybe he thinks HER remarks were appropriate.
Boehner commenting on the exercise of “FREE SPEECH” by a PRIVATE CITIZEN is INAPPROPRIATE!
FU John Boner! You friggin’ RINO coward!
John Bonehead is a complete f***ing idiot:
Sandra Flukes Appearance Is No Fluke
In other words, folks, you are being played. She has been an activist all along and the Dems were just waiting for the appropriate time to play her.
While she is described as a third year law student they always fail to mention that
she is also the past president of Law Students for Reproductive Justice.
You have obviously studied this a bit. Any reason the “judge” here might have ruled the way it did? Would it be done on purpose to draw attention to Obama’s call for amnesty?
believes the use of those words was inappropriate——
Only in the age of Obama are words inappropriate...well if Your not a Democrat...otherwise you can tell the citizenry to ‘go straight to hell’, call em ‘sonsabitches’, and ‘demons’, evenly falsely accuse people of spitting on you..yeah you can use words for that..
Whose side is he on?
