Poor, conservative-maligned law student introducing Obama at campaign event

posted at 2:41 pm on August 7, 2012 by Dustin Siggins

A few months ago, Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke made headlines for supporting the HHS Mandate in testimony to Congress, and her name exploded into the national scene after Rush Limbaugh made her a target of scorn and mockery. At the time, liberals defended Fluke against Limbaugh’s attacks, pretending she was simply some new-to-politics college student being unfairly maligned by conservatives.

While this defense has been debunked for months, after tomorrow it should be considered entirely dismissible. From Daily Caller:

Fluke is expected to introduce Obama in downtown Denver at the Auraria Campus, during a campaign stop centered on his economic plans, the outlet noted. Fluke’s appearance will likely add a second dynamic, with the campaign, in recent months, attempting to highlight differences between Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s stances on women’s issues to Obama’s left-leaning approach.

Of course, this is not Fluke’s first foray into “women’s issues.” She has been involved with pro-abortion organizations, apparently made a stink about Georgetown’s contraceptive insurance policy before she came to the university, and generally has been something of a liberal political activist. Oh, and she joined VP Biden and other liberals in July to make a speech to the nation’s second-largest teachers’ union convention.

The Obama campaign has jumped back into attacking Romney over his positions on abortion and contraception as of late, even as one ad was hammered by Fact Check for inaccuracies. With Fluke apparently becoming further entrenched with the Obama apparatus, is it okay to criticize her now? Or is that still out of line?

Interesting. I never did any of that, but I’m pretty sure I’m on firm libertarian grond when I object to women being called sluts, whores, and c***s.

red_herring on August 7, 2012 at 3:55 PM

Yes, I understand that is the main plank of the Johnson campaign. I understand your only point here is that you take offense at her being called a slut. Fair enough. I say if you don’t want people to make assumptions about your sexual habits, don’t go in front of America saying you need $1,000 worth of protection per year. She was stupid. There is a price to pay for that.

Night Owl on August 7, 2012 at 4:13 PM

Correct. It is immoral to subsidize anything. A person’s personal choices are that person’s problem. Sandra Fluke is a whore if she think the cost of her BC is my problem. Anyone who demands others pay for their life are whores.

NotCoach on August 7, 2012 at 4:10 PM

Yup as are volt owners….

Sam is in fact getting paid by the taxpayer if he gets what he wants to have sex…

to whit…

Sam says the pills(for my friend) cost 3 grand….

ok I’ll even grant that what the “genius” law student was saying was “1000 a year for my friend”

well 108 dollars versis 1000

erm 9 bucks a month ie .30s a day for the nine bucks….

or 1000/12 or about 84 bucks a month or 2.80 something or so a day….

it is not my fault that Sam sold sex to me for so cheaply but by God I am paying Sam for sex….

Depends what they lie about. She wasn’t in front of congress. It was a press conference staged to look like a congressional hearing. You have got to be the most gullible person in the world. Is this woman your sister or something? She wanted this reaction so she could look like a poor, downtrodden student, when in fact she is nothing of the sort. Your time would be better spent defending someone more worthy of your gallantry. /sarc

red_herring on August 7, 2012 at 3:12 PM

red_herring on August 7, 2012 at 4:23 PM

She’s a slut because she insinuated that she and many other law students need $3000 worth of BC a year. By any reasonable standard that’s a lot of sex and with many different men. Ergo SLUT.

Without insurance coverage, contraception, as you know, can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school. For a lot of students who, like me, are on public interest scholarships, that’s practically an entire summer’s salary.-Sandra Fluke

She’s a whore because she compromised the country’s(of which she is surely only a reluctant member) principles for her own personal gain. Ergo WHORE.

Words have definitions. Definitions mean things. If you match the definition you are what those words mean. Ergo yet again, Slut & Whore. You’ve just been professored, class dismissed.

I’m pretty sure the person was arguing that women don’t need to take bc because they can choose who they want to have sex with.

THat’s not true, because women are raped quite frequently.

red_herring on August 7, 2012 at 3:58 PM

Yes, and see my prior answer. What are you trying to say? That everyone should have birth control IN CASE they get raped?

And we should all pay for it?

That’s just desperate and silly.

Maybe I should wrap myself up in bubble wrap in case I fall down.

LOL. Okay.

kim roy on August 7, 2012 at 4:27 PM

PS: to get bc, you need to have a doctor’s appointment too, which if you don’t have insurance, can cost a lot of money.

red_herring on August 7, 2012 at 3:18 PM

So, you aren’t familiar with Planned ‘Parenthood’ and all of their FREE birth control options?
Or is expensive to the tune of $3K/year the only birth control acceptable to a rich white round-heels? No freebies like the lower classes from the ‘hood?

Can Sam Fluke, his boyfriend, Sam’s imaginary friend or the President send me a c note for twinkies I need comfort food and for some reason have a hard time sitting down in a chair for a few days….

it’s all sort of murky but this mysterious stranger mutters “you owe your fair share Rethuglican” and I black out and wake up with one of my no touch parts in pain….

well the 5-10% of their 2012 voting base that is dead are, if not unintelligent at least very slowly spoken….

Making me – or an employer – pay for your birth control is legislating morality?

The Catholic church isn’t forcibly preventing people from doing whatever they want but they are insisting they not be forced to pay for it.

At the risk of pointing out the obvious, yes, it is legislating morality.

I’m amused that liberals say that the bedroom is a private place, and yet accessories needed for the bedroom are to be taken from other non-consenting adult taxpayers — even as they whine that said other taxpayers are trying to take away their freedoms.

As a Catholic, I’m willing to let Caesar be Caesar right up until he insists he’s God.

Quite, I love how the left constantly and willfully misinterpret the meaning of that passage.

Now that’s when push comes to shove. Outstanding. No one’s going to top “contraceptively rich.”

Why would a lesbian need birth control?

When Fluke went to the Hill to get paid
For her birth control, someone there said:
“You might get more cash
If you shaved off that ‘stache
And helped a male law stud get laid.”

Without birth control Sandra’s stuck
Her “classmates” might be out of luck
Public funding is prudent
So that every student
Can ask once again: “Wanna Fluke?”

Scores?
Thank you and good evening.

You consistently live up to your name.

No women really are not raped to a great degree. You’re just a fear monger.

What an honor for Sandra “Slut” Fluke! She gets to introduce her long-time Idol, Barack Hussein, at a campaign meeting! Now she will have a proud story to tell her children! OOPS, I forgot! Women of her sexual persuasion don’t usually get pregnant! Oh well, she can just tell her friends!

And if so, why on earth would the woman need birth control?

Interesting. I never did any of that, but I’m pretty sure I’m on firm libertarian grond when I object to women being called sluts, whores, and c***s.

red_herring on August 7, 2012 at 3:55 PM

Hello Sarah? Care to comment?

Tenwheeler on August 7, 2012 at 11:38 PM

Sorry I’m late to the party. Catching up on up-thread comments.

Without insurance coverage, contraception, as you know, can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school. For a lot of students who, like me, are on public interest scholarships, that’s practically an entire summer’s salary.-Sandra Fluke

From Planned Parenthood’s website (I know, just trying to find a site the libs will accept) Cost about $15–$50 each month

So, benefit of the doubt. She buys the 50 per. Law school lasts 5 years? Maybe if she spent more time in class and the library instead of on her back she’d finish faster and we wouldn’t have to pay for so much birth control. Her partners in the law firm can pick it up once she graduates.

Tenwheeler on August 7, 2012 at 11:48 PM

Sandra who??

Oh, Fluck, or Flook, or whatever. She’s still around?

I guess Obama is out of new ideas to campaign on, so he’s recycling Sandra and his “war on women”. Shouldn’t he “freshen her up” with a new hairstyle or something? Something to grab our attention?

His “campaign” is beginning to resemble “Groundhog Day”. Week one, War on Women. Week two: Ann Romney’s horse. Week three: Bain Capital. Week four: I killed Bin Laden. Repeat until November and hope no one notices I made the worst recession since the ’30s even worse with my ham-handed, inept, and stubbornly socialist policies.

Oh, and claim “racism” if I lose.

Because the sad truth is that some men will stick it anywhere.

swinia sutki on August 8, 2012 at 6:58 AM

Why was Sandra Fluke called a “woman of ill repute” by some? Not because she wants free protection during her many sexual encounters, but because she prostituted herself to promote Barack Obama’s agenda. In essence, Barack Obama’s “lady.” (Trying to keep it clean.)

afotia on August 8, 2012 at 7:11 AM

To all those responding to red_herring:

“Feeding the Trolls” makes for long and impossible to follow comments pages. Ignore him and he will go play in some other sand box.

(The implied reference to Fluke in that last sentence was unintentional, however appropriate.)
