Sec. Panetta, Get Rush Limbaugh Off Armed Forces Radio NOW! (Petition on Whitehouse.gov!)
Whitehouse.gov ^ | March 4, 2012

Posted on 03/05/2012 12:18:59 PM PST by rightwingintelligentsia

It is not bad enough that he provides partisan blather, that he demeans our President.

He has regularly demeaned women.

His remarks this week were well beyond the pale of what should be broadcast to our military and their families, supported with our tax dollars.

We have a moral objection to our tax dollars being used for such a purpose.

You should move immediately to cancel any further broadcast through government facilities of his venom.

There is no excuse for the US Government, in any capacity, giving this man an audience.

Did any of you know that Whitehouse.gov hosts a "petition" site? Me, neither. Outrageous.

Exactly. Never mind Panetta - we have the President and Commander-in-Chief (so-called) wallowing in the mud with the partisan hacks personally calling Fluke to apologize. I mean, don’t these people have anything IMPORTANT to do? No wonder the country is in such a sorry state. Between the clowns in the media and the clowns in DC, it’s a wonder we’re still standing. I bet the thin-skinned obama has nothing better to do than read blogs on his blackberry all day to see what everyone is saying about him..

It’s like wack-a-mole. You try to argue for religious freedom, you end up in a trap apologizing to a slut. You apologize to the wench, then you end up having to defend free speech ...

I am sorry but this sucks big time. When you are over in another country and have zero radio except for the various language channels that you don’t understand, hearing the Armed Forces American Radio is such a great gift. I know they are not talking about taking away the channel but to take Rush off the radio is not right for the very listeners who are fighting for the United States. I think might be the worst thing that Obama is deciding because it will screw with the morale of the troops and also cause people to be upset when they need to concentrate on winning the war or protecting the country they are in. THIS SUCKS!!!!!

Is that the White House web site or the pornography site attempting to emulate the name of the website? (Of course with this Administration, there probably isn’t much difference in substance.)

This was why Rush apologized folks. He figured on a full court “leftist” press, and he rendered it moot, with the apology.

Some enterprising souls have posted GREAT petitions there... one of them says, “Resign”. (that’s the whole petition)

I’m not registering with them, but for those with a “junk” email account where you don’t mind them knowing it, you could have some fun.

Statement: "It is not bad enough that he provides partisan blather, that he demeans our President."

Response: Not my President. I never voted for the clown currently occupying the White House.

Posted this on the Rush Live Thread:

Rush realized that this could snowball out of control, and it was. By his apology on the “name-calling” only, he wisely set up a roadblock, while continuing defend his principles and expose leftist degenerate double-standard motives, their hate, and their totalitarian agenda.

Rush said (as only he can), “I behaved like the leftists. The only one not true to my character was me.”

He apologized for the name-calling, but defended the principle of his arguments against Fluke and the leftist agenda.

Are they ALSO moving on Bill Mahr? David Letterman?

Where's the 1st Amendment Rights on this? Where's the 14th Amendment on this (Equal Protection under the Law)?

Oh....that's right; The Constituion is not used anymore, since the ILLEGAL ALIEN has taken charge of the White Hut.

No matter what Rush's motivation for "apologizing" was, he's taken the broken eggs and turned them into a delicious omlet.

An additional untold thousands of people listed to Rush today to just see what he was going to say. I don't don't what they were expect, maybe Boehner tears, or obama bowing...who knows.

However, Rush seized this opportunity to explain - in depth - what the left is up to with this Fluke of a story. He lets us know that the supposed "hearing" was nothing more than a lib-tank press conference faked up to be a "congressional hearing".

Also that the libs had insisted on replaceing a liberal hack "expert" with Madam Fluke to ring the contraception bell so loud no one could hear the sour notes of the obama administration.

It was all a show, and yes - Rush fell into the trap by using absurdity to show absurdity.

A few, self-righteous blowhards might have deserted Rush, but probably only those in the audience who were there to "keep their enemies closer" types, namely libs.

But now everybody knows what the melodramatic madam has tried to do, and even though the leftymedia will try and spin it the other way, we know....we know.

And even if it was real, I'm not taking the word of a 23 30-year-old "co-ed" who says that $3,000 worth of contraception is not enough to keep up with her sexual appitite.

Everytime the impotent left tries to screw somebody, they go limp, and lose. Their premature expectations always backfire.

Whoever heard of asking other people to pay for your "sports equipment" so you can go out and have yourself a good ol' time on the taxpayers' dime?

Maybe he shouldn't have said it out loud, but nonetheless, Rush is right!

“This is becoming outrageous. I can’t stand liberals. I mean, I literally hate them ALL”

This would be the SAME Leon Panetta who KNEW Clinton was screwing (well almost) the INTERN!!!

******

June 1995: Monica Lewinsky, 21, comes to the White House as an unpaid intern in the office of Chief of Staff Leon Panetta.

TOIV stated that he has had conversations about
LEWINSKY with LEON PANETTA, JENNIFER PALMIERI, MARTHA FOLEY, and JOHN ANGEL. These conversations revolved around how shocking the allegations were.

I suspect this is part of the dark plan. They don’t give a flying orange peel about the morale of the troops, imho. Anything causing chaos, confusion, disgruntlement, etc, is grist for their mill in their efforts to bring down the light of America.

As Bill Clinton's chief of staff Leon Panetta is an expert on “demeaning women.” He's also an authority on trading classified U.S. technology to the Chinese in exchange for laundered campaign contributions, allowing cronies to loot the resources of the former Soviet Union and bureaucratically hamstringing the the CIA and FBI to the point of enabling terror attacks against the U.S.

I like the idea of Ms. Fluke suing Mr. Limbaugh. Then, Mr. Limbaugh’s attorneys get to depose Ms. Fluke, and she gets to tell the world why an unmarried female law student needs contraceptives. Assuming, of course, that she is not the one out of a thousand or so taking them for some obscure ailment.

See : find a petition.
It is a petition for Obummer to have Panetta to do action.
9,730 signees. It doesn’t mean SQUAT. It’s a way for the White Hut to see if they should care.
Kudos to Iowahawk for his resign petition.
