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.

It would make no sense for Boner to defend Rush's jokes. But why is it his job to comment on them? Because Pelosi demanded it?
He should have done like the leftist would do and said, “I have no comment”.
YOU are on the list for sure BoneHead!
“I must say that he either needs to get back on the Obama is an economic disaster track and off the social issues...”
Those that don’t know from personal experience that ‘obama ia an economic disaster’ by now will never know.
In addition, it’s still Rush’s show, and he can discuss whatever he wants, when he wants.
Thank goodness someone we know is a woman has finally spoken up to condemn this profligate, obdurate floozy. The slut runs from one interview to another paining a giant mosaic of herself as an out-of-control pig — and the rest of us are supposed to be aggrieved that Rush besmirched her dignity? Give me a break.
The Kadarshian’s America has become a place unfit for decent human beings.
You know you’ve got a problem when the best and brightest guy your fellow party members could vote in as Speaker, turns out to be Boehner.
Calling John Boehner a pussy is redundant.
Calling him stupid insinuates a promotion of sorts.
If I was his dog I’d cough up a week’s worth of dogie biscuits to roll over on the guy.
If I were one of his kids I’d be looking to change my name and birth certificate.
If I were his wife, I’d be looking to change my address at least five times.
If I were a city leader where he lived, I’d be offering him incentives to move.
If I were a termite in his house, I’d warn the bed-bugs they have stiff competition, and hang a sign in Congress warning of the infestation.
Nope, I’m just a fellow member of his party, and a party affiliation change is looking mighty appealing right about now.
I’ll bet this guy could stand out in his front yard during a downpour and not get hit by a single drop of rain.
EXACTLY! Third party will be in the making soon if it hasn't started already. It will take time to wean the puppies.
Okay! Will post a thread post haste.
The majority of the time Rush does focus on economic issues but also includes the absurdity of the democrat party. This whore perfectly demonstrates the tactics of the left with the added bonus of showing just how obsessed they are with all things sexual. She absolutely epitomizes the left:
1. No personal responsibility
2. Freeloading off of society
3. Rabidly obsessed with all things shameful; including abortion, sexual perversions, and promiscuity.
She IS the democrat party a.k.a. America haters.
John Boehner brings me to tears!
Only a slut would want other people to pay for her birth control pills.
I don’t want to work and have to pay for someone else’s birth control. I always paid for my own.
Rush is right, she is a slut and she should have been embarrassed to speak at a congressional hearing.
Only a true tramp would do that.
Besides being that rectal wart he must be compromised ( as most are in Congress)
Dear Mr. Boehner:
1. Undo your belt a little bit. You don’t have to drop trou here or anything; just make some room for exploration.
2. With your right hand, reach down deep inside your pants. You may have to steady yourself with your left, by leaning on one of your liberal friends “across the aisle.” Try Barney Frank; he’ll be more than happy to give you a hand.
3. Find the pair that you presumably were born with. It might take some searching and rooting around in there, evidently.
4. Once Located, investigate until you satisfy yourself that you are indeed, MALE, and were BORN male, and the boyos are STILL down there.
5. And, once satisfied, finally, for once, ACT LIKE A FRIGGING MAN, you spineless piece of FOD...
Good lord, no wonder we’re getting our asses handed to us by the other side.
When the hell are we going to get someone in there who will FIGHT these liberals POSs on equal terms...
ooh, good one. He allowed it without saying anything.
I am sorry, I am with Limbaugh on this. I wanted to tell that twitt in the hearing to PUT HER LEGS TOGETHER and save herself 3K!! I mean DAMN.... if you cannot accept or afford the consequences, DO NOT UNDERTAKE THE ACTIONS! For damn sure don’t FORCE your freaking neighbors to pay for your chlamydia treatments, condoms, birth control pills, morning after pills, and abortions! You are there to get an EDUCATION, not to get laid.
Really Rush, is right, the girl came off as a complete slut, and she did it all by herself.
What a girly-man. Just what our party needs an outstanding WIMP!
“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. “
He is only wandering into the theater of the absurd. It is something I often do when challenged on my anti-abortion position by Pro-Choicers. I simply agree with them that abortion is a legal right and I won’t be happy until the law extends up to the age of legal majority for any children. When they realize that they are arguing with someone that is extolling abortion of 17 year old children they usually slink away rather quickly.
Ms Fluke openly revealed her obviously promiscuous life style before the Congressional hearing and Rush’s characterization of her as a slut was perfectly justified. Rep. Boehner should get some backbone.
Is anyone really surprised by that drunk boehner?
Social issues matter just as much, if not more, to REAL conservatives.
“The establishment Republicans always....ALWAYS.... allow the Democrats to frame the debate. That is the main reason most are such losers.”
Exactly. Where Boehner fails spectacularly is not broadening the issue and taking a jab at the dims for all the teabagger nonsense. The Dims are brawling and in response we have twinkle toes Boehner as our leader. It seems Boehner is more concerned with damaging conservatives than he is in fighting the dims. We are in deep trouble.
Leave that slut alone! Waaaaaaa!
Boehner is such a wussy.
Unions, Blacks, Hispanics, Sex Deviates, Felons, Illegals, Teachers, etc., etc. have been systematically bought via handouts of borrowed-taxpayer dollars.
Think about it...it's all about VOTES.
Do women REALLY think they are above Sharia Law in being USED AT THE WHIM OF GOVERNMENT once they are "bought" to be nothing but tramps and sex receptacles?
Women think this (and abortion) is in THEIR interest? If they do, they truly are being dumb.
As you two friends well know I been posting since early 2009 that Boehner should have been replaced after the 2008 election, and certainly not made Speaker. There are plenty of reasons why this should have been done. I can only guess that no one in the House wanted the job. You can bet that no-one wants it now.
Here's what Boner SHOULD HAVE SAID:
“ It's not the House Speaker's job to review a talk show radio hosts monologue comments for content. I will leave that important job to the ex-Speaker Nancy Pelosi. We have important work to do, like undoing unconstitutional mandates”
John noBoner has more things to worry about than what Limbaugh says. I wish someone would give him a clue.
He should be in the Senate as he is making Trent Lott and Bill Frist proud.
“Cry Me a River”.
If this broad is flatbackin’ to the tune of needing subsidized birth control, she IS a slut.
the guy is ball less as well as clueless...he needs to hear from us...
I'll tell you where mine is, after the Tea Party put him in by a huge margin: His wife, from what I've heard, runs the office and it's a known fact that he's on his second or third staff. They get hired then can't take it and hit the bricks. His first Chief of Staff even quit after the first couple of months.
You call or write him and you get back a boilerplate letter stating all he's done (which is nothing) and how hard he's working to help our District (which again is nothing). Enclosed with the letters are, of course, 'donate-to-my-campaign' cards. Now, on the radio day after day are ads saying how he went to Washington and is now a "NATIONAL L-E-A-D-E-R IN THE FIGHT TO TAKE BACK AMERICA". He's as much a NATIONAL LEADER as I am John Wayne.
Rush is right and called a spade a spade or in this case a slut a slut. Give me a break is right. His disgust is shared by many of us; the difference is he has the megaphone to voice that disgust.
Boner, what a joke.
Are there no repubs with a back bone?
He should have said it was inappropriate for HIM
to comment and leave it at that.
This cry baby is the wrong man at the wrong time. We need a war time consigliere.
What I find “unfortunate” is the utter lack of understanding simple English terms and the twisting of them into a pejorative when it clearly is not warranted.
The woman is a slut and the term is correct. If she takes umbrage at the term, then she is the one who should change their ways, not Rush. Rush dared to utter the truth and say what the bulk of the thinking populace saw or heard in this self-serving display of Ms. Fluke’s (and I use the term “Ms.” lightly) had in their hearts and minds also.
THIS REPUBLICAN FAMILY IS DAMN SICK AND TIRED OF PLAYING THE ‘NICE GUY’ ROLL..
TIME TO ‘MAN UP’ PEOPLE...
Why not ask the men to pay for it!
WTF - if I ever found such an easy whore who wanted to screw me all the time and only asked i pay for the condoms, who the hell would ever say no to that?
Boehner has returned to OH to deliver the state Tuesday for
“Whose side is he on?’
It’s no secret there’s no love lost between the house Rino’s and Rush.
Boner is a BIG disappointment . . . . why not just keep his freakin’ mouth shut. He is doing exactly what the RATS want him to do. Create animosity between the R’s and Rush. They have nothing else on which to hand their hats. Get in the game Boner!!!
Like I have posted 100 times, we have NO leadership, and we won’t HAVE any, until we get rid of Boner and McConnell.
He’s a disgrace.
Pols in DC don’t want to have to PAY for their fun! Sheesh. And if they don’t start condemning when folks call a spade a spade, they might be called on the carpet for their hypocrisy.
Dear Speaker Boehner, all you pols in DC are a bunch of sluts and whores. Does that make you feel better?
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.
He would be romney’s best friend and advisor. I would expect boner/romney to ask for the fairness doctrine to be reinstated to keep the dems, his buddies, happy and shut the REAL REPUBLICANS on the radio, up.
” Here’s what Boner SHOULD HAVE SAID:
It’s not the House Speaker’s job to review a talk show radio hosts monologue comments for content. I will leave that important job to the ex-Speaker Nancy Pelosi. We have important work to do, like undoing unconstitutional mandates “
Boner is worse than useless. He might as well be a Democrat.
When you publicly admit that you have the morals of an alley cat, you shouldn’t be offended when you are appropriately called a ‘slut’. Ms. Fluke’s “problem” is 100% self-inflicted. Rush is RIGHT, Boehner is wrong - again. Boehner needs to step down NOW - we need leadership with morals and a spine, not a go-along-to-get-along RINO.
Exactly. He had two options: no comment or use the question as an oppprtunity to blast the absurdity of the hearings and allowing victims to beg for free contrcaeptives. Instead boehner fell for the bait.
Actually, it’s “inappropriate” for Boehner to be calling out a private citizen for expressing an opinion.
Boner is an embarassment and a gutless piece of crap.
On another note, when will the posters and bumper stickers start appearing that say “Georgetown Girls Are Easy”?
He didn't say this because this is not his job to do & he said what he actually thinks. He's a useful idiot for the elites - and the sheeple (R)s vote him back in. He's there because of the people of Ohio.
Speaking of Bill Maher and other celebs, where was our “distinguished” speaker when they called Bush43 an idiot, clueless, etc. and these were the nice things they called him. Or when called Sarah Palin the C word? Or the time Julianne Maleveaux (sp) wished that Justice Thomas’ wife would feed him lots of pork so he would drop dead of a heart attack like so many Black men? Nah, no divisivness here folks, move on /s
