Boehner calls Limbaugh remarks "inappropriate"
msnbc.com ^ | March 2, 2012 | Frank Thorp, Luke Russert and Michael O'Brien

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.

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?

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.

Beyond disgusted.

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.

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?

I find Boners lack of leadership "inappropriate". Which is more dangerous for the country? Rush's remarks calling out a Left wing trick or Boner being a crying loser as House Speaker.

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.

Bonehead is a weak fool. He has made he House totally ineffective in stopping the communists black Muslim from establishing a dictatorship. King Obama will win 4 more years to finish the job. King Obama is now working on the rat States to invoke his agenda. Only Newt Gingrich could stop him.

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.

As a huge fan and a regular listener, any time Rush starts talking about women and politics, I start to cringe.

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.

John Bonehead is a complete f***ing idiot:

Sandra Fluke’s 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.
