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.

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
Please don’t interrupt a REAL MAN when he is speaking Mr. Boehner, it is just rude.
POST OF THE DAY!! Chris Crocker has a bigger pair. It’s past time for the GOP to perform house speaker replacement surgery.
“she ain’t even heterosexual...”
Hah! I said on a similar thread yesterday that had a picture that my gaydar was going off and she looked like a lesbo - this was a gut instinct - I did no googling on her at all. Was I right?
But...but he’s so sensitive!!
So, we’re in a virtual civil war for the survival of this country and our side has Ashley Wilkes leading the surrender.
As Rush has been saying, “Boehner is Obama’s lifeline.” Boehner should STHU, and find a way to finally defeat Obama on some issue.
If the condems fit, you can’t ACQUIT!
Yea, that got me too. I could not believe that he said that.
didnt mean to imply that he should support rushbo...meant to say that since he doesnt bother to support those he should, [Issa & co] then why does he go out of his way to support the likes of nan and the commies ???
maybe because he is in bed with the other wing of the tyranny-o-saurus...???
