This is just pathetic. Any decent human being should have the courage to outright denounce Rush Limbaugh’s vile attacks on Georgetown law student and women’s rights activist Sandra Fluke.
But even after Limbaugh called Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute”, all Republican leaders can do is offer B.S. responses.
Mitt Romney: “I'll just say this, which is, it’s not the language I would have used.”
Rick Santorum: “He's being absurd, but that's you know, an entertainer can be absurd.”
Finally, Speaker Boehner, refusing to speak for himself, had his spokesman say only that Rush's words were "inappropriate."Tomorrow, Republican Leader Cantor will have a national platform on “Meet the Press” to finally outright condemn Limbaugh. Let’s make sure he knows we’re watching and we won’t let him weasel out of this one.
30,996 signatures to go: Help us hit 250,000 signatures on our petition calling on Eric Cantor and Republicans in Congress to publicly denounce Rush Limbaugh's cruel tirade against women >>
Sandra Fluke is an inspiration to all of us who stand up for women’s access to health care and our right to make our own health care choices. We can’t let the right-wing get away with these disgusting slurs -- and neither should Republican in Congress. Call them out >>
Thanks for standing strong.
Enough said. Now is the time for action. This War on Women has to End.
