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

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.

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.

Boehner commenting on the exercise of “FREE SPEECH” by a PRIVATE CITIZEN is INAPPROPRIATE!

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.

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?

Oh great. Even if they were, why does the damn Speaker of the House have to get involved. Heck Rush can say whatever he wants. It is his radio show. If people don’t like it, then turn it off but for Republicans to start bashing a conservative is repulsive.

And yet not a word of outcry from Nancy Pelosi and the Dems when Bill Clinton was alleged to have raped women by credible accusers...

If I had any liking for this guy it is all gone now. How he can pick on a private citizens comment and not give this WH any grief for breaking the laws on a daily basis is beyond me.

I used to work with a special man at the Topeka Kansas Police Dept. He used to tell me, “Terri, people make me tired.” I never really understood what he meant until now.

You expect people on the left or those who aren’t engaged in politics to allow media in some ways to formulate their opinions. But those who honestly think for themselves and those who aren’t content to allow others to form their opinions actually FIND OUT FOR THEMSELVES what someone actually thinks or says or believes before they open their mouthes and make an unmitigated ass out of themselves.

People make me tired.

Rush is right on this one.

That chick is pimping herself out and by her demand, of a so called right, that we pay for her contraceptives - She is a prostitute, a harridan, a filthy manx and apparently she sleeps around quite a bit.

Will she also demand we pay to treat her sexual diseases?

Does she not consider the cost her decision to have sex?

There is always a cost.

It costs money for drinks, it costs money for phone calls, it cost time to set up a boinking session, it costs money to make oneself attractive, it costs money for lingerie, it costs money for hotel rooms, it costs money for trips, it costs money to deal with UTI’s, it costs money to deal with warts, it costs money to deal with STD’s and, and, and, it costs a whole lot to manage HIV/AIDS.

here is the kicker:
She ain’t even heterosexual.

She’s is a paid shill from the licker cabinet.
