Skip to comments.A Statement from Rush (Rush offers apology to Slut!)
Posted on 03/03/2012 2:15:11 PM PST by TSgt
For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week. In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke.
I think it is absolutely absurd that during these very serious political times, we are discussing personal sexual recreational activities before members of Congress. I personally do not agree that American citizens should pay for these social activities. What happened to personal responsibility and accountability? Where do we draw the line? If this is accepted as the norm, what will follow? Will we be debating if taxpayers should pay for new sneakers for all students that are interested in running to keep fit?In my monologue, I posited that it is not our business whatsoever to know what is going on in anyone's bedroom nor do I think it is a topic that should reach a Presidential level.
My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices.
In your knowledge of public relations WE ARE AT WAR I do not give
damn about public relations just like the other side does NOT. WE are
past the point of public relations!!!! THEY HAVE NONE AND THEY ARE
Not a chance.
Rush gave up all credibility to speak on this subject when he admitted something he already said about it was wrong.
Well, those that see Rush as some sort of leader or adviser or seer are very naive. Rush is a entertainer, more so he is a businessman running a business for $$$. That is his priority. I have found Rush very inconsistent in the messages he sends from show to show. To enjoy him you must forget things he said a year or two ago.
From what some of the guests and paid commentators were reporting on MSNBC Friday and maybe Thursday, a number of sponsors >5 pulled their advertising off of Rush's show. Those inside the bubble probably didn't know that.
Rush is just a sideshow, the main show is that Republicans are on a consistent losing streak against Obama since taking back the House, And I am not optimistic about them breaking it.
I figure it’s not so much the money as fear of leftists. That’s why he won’t touch fag “rights” or the fact that a usurper is in the WH. For starters. He’s afraid to go off the reservation. Plus he may have no interest in going off the reservation.
Amazing to watch all of the “Conservative” keyboard warriors tuck their tail and turn on Rush isn’t it?
They’re about as loyal as a slut, truly ironic.
This post gives support to your assertion that “God bestowed upon us the gift of sex in order that we might multiply. God is cheated and His will is defiled by the use of contraceptives.” You made a good point.
Such a valid point.
It is such a valid point that it bears repeating again!
I wonder what was in the package he recieved Thursday. I wonder if it included a letter too.
Fine. We are at war. Who are you going to shoot first?
“How does the cost make her a “slut, tart, tramp”? It’s not like one needs to take more birth control if they’re having more sex; doesn’t work like that. Her remarks about the cost make her a liar, sure, but not a slut.”
You’re correct in that I’m assuming cost has some relationship to frequency of need - if she taking the pill continuously over a three-year period, but seldom having sex, I guess it’s probably more fair to impugn the extent to which her expectations match reality, rather than question what was once quaintly referred to as one’s “virtue”.
She’s the one who chose to make her sex life my business (by testifying about it in Congress, and by demanding others pay for her personal choices), but since I don’t really give a rip about her sex life, I’ll agree I really shouldn’t have expected her to clarify if she’s continually active, or just wants to be safe and prepared whatever the occasion. But again, she’s the one who brought it up; some speculation in that matter should hardly be unexpected.
Amen. Only one way I can see it going onward.
May God Bless those who are fighting for righteneous, to sustain our great country.Onward Christian soldiers. May the evil go to their dwelling place, and we triumph!
Rush sold his soul for money. He was losing sponsors left and right He’s a moral coward and I’ll never listen to him again. I truly hope he just fades away- quickly.
Don’t know why people here think they have a say in what RL does. He didn’t have to call her a slut, or apologize. He made his own decisions each time.
Fact is this was a great issue and he totally derailed it. No one knows the woman is a slut, she’s a priviliged leftist activist and the issue was her demanding free pills, and lying, the issue wasn’t her being a slut.
Hopefully the issue remains. I think it does.
And I have no problem with the man doing that. He's making a killing and I say more power to him. He's found his groove.
Having said that, I'm not going to live and die by his every word like some demented sycophant who doesn't realize that the man is doing nothing more than running a successful business.
Good night. You deserve far less.
it isn’t just about frequency.
She is not married.
According to the catholic teaching, she is requesting they finance fornication.
She doesn’t just think they should finance it....she is accusing them of cruelty and sexism if they do not finance it.
It is brazen arrogance which she attempts to hide under a mask of helplessness and mock injury.
She did not say a single word about her sex life. In fact, the vast majority of her testimony concerned the use of contraceptives for purposes other than preventing pregnancy. Of course, she's exaggerating that need, but that just makes her a dumb liberal activist liar. Not a slut.
Did the slut/whore/whackjob Fluke except Rush’s apology?
