At Least Rush Stands by his Own Words

by Lisa Hussein

Rick Santorum has now back peddeled away from the “Obama is a snob” to want all kids to go to college statements.  Now he says that he “read” that the president had called for all kids to go to a 4-year college.  He didn’t read that somewhere.  His people knew exactly what the president said and Santorum is a bad liar.  Santorum thought he had a winning strategy calling the president a snob.  He gambled and he lost.  Apparently most Republicans expect their kids to go to college.  Can you imagine the media spin had Obama said that anyone who wants their kids to go to college is a snob?  All of the racists would have come out of the wood-work to opine about how African Americans (otherwise known as the N-word in their world) don’t value education and that’s why they can’t pull themselves up by the bootstraps.  Hell, they stole our bootstraps years ago.

Now our buddy Rush Limbaugh has issued an apology for the 3-day-torrent of foul language and defamation to Georgetown University Law Student Sandra Fluke – who testified in front of a Democrat-led committee.  Her testimony expressed the need for employers’ insurance coverage to cover hormonal contraception because it is used to treat other female ailments.  Rush decided that she had said that she is having so much sex that she cannot afford birth control.  Folks, you cannot make this stuff up.  Now he has apologized.  Unlike Santorum, however, he stand by his words.  He apologized for calling her a slut and a prostitute but said that he stands by the sentiment that he expressed.  Good for Rush – at least he’s a man of conviction.

Unlike Actress Patricia Heaton, who thought it would be a good idea to repeat the same sentiment as Rush.  She couldn’t withstand the firestorm – so she took down her Twitter account.  But not before the folks over at AngryBlackLady took a screen shot of her rants.   The twitter account is now back up with a feeble apology.  So much for women standing by their words.
