(CBS News) Republican presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul said an apology by conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh to Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke for calling her a "slut" and a "prostitute" was not sincere, and was made only because it best served Limbaugh.
On CBS News' "Face the Nation," the Texas congressman told host Bob Schieffer that Limbaugh's apology "was in his best interest."
"He's doing it because some people were taking their advertisements off of his program. It was his bottom line he was concerned about," Paul said.
Let me put it this way. In the past, Rush has said that only the president of ClearChannel is allowed to send him “notes”. I’m guessing he got a note.
I’m pretty sure Ron Paul is not very happy about Rush Limbaugh’s imitation of him on air. I think it is pretty funny, and quite close to reality; however, I’m thinking Congressman Paul may have a different opinion.
Fluke you Ron Paul.
Well, you made me look the word up. "A woman of loose morals" seems to fit her quite well.
Just become a democrat you old coot, GO AWAY.
What I do know about Paul is that he's never apologized for anything - not for his racist blogs/newsletter; not for claiming that Jews deserve to be left to their own defenses against the Arab/Muslim countries surrounding them who desire their destruction; not for basically agreeing with Rev. Jeremiah Right that "America's chickens are coming home to roost;" translated we deserved 9/11.
Nope, I still believe that Paul truly believes that Rush Limbaugh would only apologize to keep from losing more advertisers, i.e. $$$$$
Maybe, maybe not. I don’t know and neither does the nutter.
This statement was in Ron Paul’s best interest and is not sincere
I hope that is the only reason Rush apologized!
I CAN'T WAIT 'TIL TOMORROW!
What other reason would there possibly be? Do you think Rush feels truly remorseful?
Yes! Thank you! Now if we pronounce it, will Ron Paul disappear?
I think that what began as a "throw away, cheeky line" very apropos for Rush, especially when a "useful idiot" is so very .....well, idiotic!
