Democrats urge Boehner to "repudiate" comments by Limbaugh on contraception testimony
CBS News ^ | 03/01/2012 | By Leigh Ann Caldwell

Posted on 03/01/2012 5:07:57 PM PST by Responsibility2nd

A group of Democratic members of Congress are continuing the political war over contraception and the latest move puts House Speaker John Boehner on the spot. Seventy-five lawmakers are urging the speaker to "repudiate" comments made by conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh.

The Democrats signed a letter to the speaker over comments Limbaugh made on his show on Wednesday calling a Georgetown University law student and women's health advocate a "prostitute" and a "slut" after her testimony before a mock Congressional hearing on birth control coverage.

Using the airwaves to launch a "direct attack on a private citizen is unacceptable," New York Rep. Louise Slaughter wrote to Speaker Boehner. "Mr. Limbaugh repeatedly used sexually charged, patently offensive, and obscene language to malign the character of this courageous young woman who has chosen to be the voice for many of her peers," the letter said.

Boehner's spokesperson declined to comment on on the letter.

What is there to repudiate?

This “child” is an ignorant slut.

If Georgetown has lowered their “standards” enough to admit this idiot-ess, that’s their problem, not Rush’s.

This is how the POS party plays.

Boehner should dig out some noxious quotes from Bill Maher - ones the feminists and homos particularly like - or better yet, Al Franken, and ask the democrats to repudiate those.

Maybe Boehner can also throw in a few good words on the attempted murder of Rush and his new wife. /sarc

The GOP may, because the perception is that all Republicans want to ban birth control. A lot of women also don’t like seeing a slut called a slut.

From a pragmatic level, I can see why this could hurt the GOP. For a moral stand point, sometimes mockery is the best thing to do. We used to call it “shame”.

I hope he does...its worth it to keep this one out in front in the media.

there’s a lot wrong with government...and this issue encapsulates it all in a very simple fashion; the Pubbies should keep kicking it on down the street for another week or so...

Since when are libals the “moral crowd”?

Rush spoke the truth which is something the liberals don’t know how to do. I’m sick and d@mn tired of these jerks wanting apologies. Let them apologize for putting a Kenyan muslim in the WH thru fraud and deceit.

Gee I thought the MSM never heard of Limbaugh?

Perhaps Rush should suspend himself?

Next comes pressure on the advertisers, then the fairness doctrine comes back, then SNL snit fits, an HBO attack movie.

All because one group wants another to pay for its ‘right to pleasure’.

You know what would be awesome?

If Boehner were to call Rush Limbaugh before Congress to speak his mind in the same way Pelosi called that slut.

Let Rush Limbaugh address before the House and Senate all the dip-wad liberals who want to repudiate him.

Cover it live on TV. Let ABCNBCPMSNBC devote hours worth of news coverage to it.

Now THAT would kick (bleep)!

You've got to send that idea to Boehner's office.

He doesn't have the b*lls, but at least someone has to float the idea to him.

He should just say:

"Gentlemen, I am sorry that this young lady has forced Mr. Limbaugh to utter the truth about what she is. It is obvious that she is proud of her profession and it is unfortunate that she debased herself before Congress and exposed her nakedness before the whole world. So therefore, I feel no apology is in order.

Furthermore, her outragous testimony before Congress goes to real heart of what is wrong with America and proves to us that her education is a waste of money."

or something like that.

boner will not survive a frontal assault from Rush... Rush will not stand for bonehead's admonishment... and neither will his listeners. If it happens... maybe the TEA Party will demand boner resign if he does not apologize personally to Rush. This could be a way to banish boner... pos liberal that he is.

They were upset about Wednesday’s broadcast? lol, Rush doubled-down on today’s show. I think yesterday, he took back the “slut” comment, and used “round-heeled” instead.

Hey Louise, isn’t what YOU are doing here a “direct attack
on a private citizen”. A man who has chosen to be the
voice of many of his peers.

Here we have a “congress woman” using the power of her
position to slam a private citizen for using free speech
and attempting to coerce another congress man to become
involved in something that is not in any way his
responsibility.

If all the Democrats have to do is tell a lie and we are screwed, then why not just give up and go away?

It would be the honest thing for you to do, since you seem unwilling to fight for the truth.

I hope this is a rebirth for Rush. After he got in trouble, he became a total Bushbot shill. But, he's totally right on this and I was cheering him in the car for the first time in many years.

Did you hear him last week replaying his Sacramento bit on the backwards Satanic messages? That man used to be seriously talented and I hope he goes back to it, rather than the GOP hack he's been for the past 8 years or so.

Politics is like sales. The sizzle goes farther than the meat. And if you don’t think the GOP isn’t trying to weasel out of this you would be silly.

For me, I wish they would take a stand. But let’s face it that would lose the mush headed independents who want to be nice and easy.

I would trade a nice GOP for a one that actually stood up and lead for once.

Bow Wow ~ she probably knows nothing of sex between men and women.

They sent her in because she could deliver the lines in the Democrat script without giggling.

I say that because for $1,000 you can outfit yourself with 11 condoms per day. If that's the needs base of 40% of Georgetown Law's females that leaves them precious little time to tend to basic needs and their johns. They won't be students for long!

Somebody said she probably thought she was talking about birth control pills, but even there she had no idea how cheap they were at Wal-Mart, or that they were actually FREE at a FREE CLINIC just off campus.

This woman is not a sexual being ~ or, her sex life veers off into venues beyond our imaginings.

Since never. :-)

I sent Darrell Issa an email today requesting that he renounce Rep Elijah Cumings for demanding that Issa renounce Rush Lambaugh for exercising his First Amendment rights.

Rush predicted this morning that Boehner would get a demand next, then Cantor, then maybe Huckabee would ask the GOP candidates about it at his candidate forum this weekend. Then maybe the WH would mention it in a speech. Rush should have added “don’t doubt me.”
