WASHINGTON, March 7, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - President Obama told reporters Tuesday that he gave personal support to Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown University Law Center student who was vaulted to stardom after advocating for the birth control mandate, because the affair caused him to think of his daughters.
I thought about Malia and Sasha. And one of the things I want them to be able to do is speak their minds in a civil and thoughtful way, and I dont want them attacked or called horrible names when theyre being good citizens, said Obama, as reported by The Hill. And I wanted Sandra to know that I thought her parents should be proud of her.
Fluke, the 30-year-old co-president of Georgetowns Law Students for Reproductive Justice, submitted testimony to Congress last month in favor of forcing virtually all U.S. employers, including her own Jesuit-run Catholic school, to cover contraception. Fluke said that her classmates have faced financial, emotional, and medical burdens as a result of the lack of birth control coverage.

Radio pundit Rush Limbaugh became embroiled in controversy for calling Fluke a slut on his show and saying her demand that she must be paid to have sex makes her a prostitute. Limbaugh later apologized for his remarks, saying in a statement that he acted too much like the leftists who despise me.
In response to a question about Limbaughs apology, Obama declined direct comment but said, What I can comment on is the fact that all decent folks can agree that the remarks that were made dont have any place in the public discourse.
Despite Limbaughs apology, the media firestorm has not abated, with Fluke brushing off the apology in an appearance on ABCs The View, while media highlighted several advertisers who ended their relationship with Limbaugh. In remarks Tuesday, Limbaugh blasted the presidents double-standard for failing to chastise similar remarks made on the Left.
Remember Labor Day 2011 ... James Hoffa Jr. at an event with Obama on the Tea Party, James Hoffa Jr. told the union to, quote, Take these sons-of-bi**hes out, unquote, said Limbaugh. Mr. Civility didnt say a word about it, Mr. Obama said not a word about it, laughed about it, in fact, didnt he?
Other conservatives, including House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), criticized the Democratic party for launching a fundraising push in response to Limbaughs comments. Erick Erickson of RedState called the Lefts response to the controversy an organized campaign by the left to shut down opposing views from the right.
Our only advantage over what the citizens of Nazi Germany had for stopping this march to the void is the internet.
We do have Auschwitz death camps all over the country. They call them women's health centers, and are funded by our tax dollars.
As for Sasha and Malia (Soviet names for girls) the liar-in-chief believes that it is okay for them to make asses of themselves delivering a treatise on government subsidized 'no worry' sex before a gaggle of gleeful perspiring perverts.
Owebama shouldn’t be pimping his kids for political gain.
I don’t want to pay for birth control for Cha-cha and Malaria either.
Fluke is a Dem political operative....PERIOD.
Unprincipled and shameless

"That's only for my opponents. Of course, my opponents aren't being good citizens, because they're opposing me. They can come along, but they have to ride in the back of the bus."
I certainly should not have to pay for someone's contraceptives.
Next thing you know....we'll have to pick up the dinner and show tab. :-)
Cleverly, the real message is getting lost....Christian values vs the government.
No decent father wants his daughters to be called “sluts”,
and further, no decent father wants his daughters to actually live up to that derogatory term through their promiscuous behavior.
Notice I referred to a “decent” father.
A leftist father, like 0bama, doesn’t care if his daughters are promiscous, as long as they experience no negative consequences for those choices, including physical and social consequences.
I just wish like Hell that ‘Stanley Anne Dunham’ had used birth control, LOTS Of it. If anybody needed an aspirin between her legs, it was THAT slut!
playing it for all its worth isn’t he
Pimping was the most important function of his job as a community agitator.
You just don’t get it. The ‘mother’s’ name was Stanley. Little Bozo was indeed lucky he didn’t bark.
Sandra has been doing so much fluking that she has no time for studies. Actually Sandra looks more like a lusty lesbian to me. (ala Janet Reno)
Why is a 30 yr old lesbian feminazi posing as a heterosexual lubidinous 23 yr old “student”?
ah... yes... the leftist agenda. The ends justify ANY means necessary.
Nonsense. How can a flaming homosexual have daughters?
You nailed it there. I have thought many times if Hitler was performing abortions on women, we would say how terrible.
and sperm donor
especially for #2
