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?

If she was raped by a girl, she won’t need birth control.

Chip on August 7, 2012 at 3:40 PM

RH is defending Sam Fluke’s ability to lie to Congress and beg for 3000 a pop Porsche drug control to NOT use as birth Control for a sex habit but no instead a study aid….

you know RH I need you to tell Sam Fluke there that ordinarily in a relationship with a single other partner pull and pray works well enough and frankly if you don’t care enough about the person you’re with to endure the prospect of a child in the worst case MAYBE YOU SHOULD PAY FOR YOU OWN SPORT SEX…..

even if it is “infrequent, rare, totally honorable, and none of my business other than YOUR RX bill Sam….”

mm’kay?

harlekwin15 on August 7, 2012 at 3:44 PM

red_herring on August 7, 2012 at 3:31 PM

So Fluke needs $3,000 worth of birth control/year because that’s how much she’s afraid of being raped?

(Just thought I’d try out your debate style for a bit. It’s pretty fun, I can see why you like it. Hope you don’t mind.)

Left Coast Right Mind on August 7, 2012 at 3:44 PM

If she’s a lesbian, doesn’t that throw out the whole “she’s a slut for demanding bc” thing? Get your stories straight people.

red_herring on August 7, 2012 at 3:44 PM

And that makes her a slut how exactly?

red_herring on August 7, 2012 at 3:29 PM

Well, I guess that telling the whole world that she needs $1,000. worth of protection per year says something about her level of sexual activity. I never said she was a slut. I think she is a big, fat liar who will say anything, no matter how stupid or how slutty it makes her look to advance the liberal cause. I can see how it can be extrapolated from her excessive need for protection, but quite frankly, the way she looks I doubt she gets lucky that often. It would not shock me in the least to find out she is a lesbian.

Night Owl on August 7, 2012 at 3:45 PM

I’m not trusting him to accidentally wind up in bed with a guy instead of a gal….

if Sam was asking for “lobotomy in a box” I might have to go against my principles on socialism and foot the bill personally to go ahead and finish off the job the human shock absorbers gymnastics, and god’s hand of fate started for him….

You are not a libertarian or you would realize that demanding or allowing other people to pay your bills for you gives them the right to comment on what you do with the money. So some people think that someone who uses $1,000 a year for birth control should go the abstinence route rather than expect other people to pay for it. You are an out and out liberal/socialist if you do not see this.

I am more interested in buying my fourth point of contact the morning after pill usually right around April the 15th….

I somehow manage to secure my own medical needs and my own comfort food and drink….

Why can’t sam skip the trip to spain and buy her imaginary friend the designer pills and send me a C note so I can get more twinkies to eat the pain away?

Doesn’t change a darn thing unless you need to carry around $3000 bux worth of condoms in case you get raped that much.

The victim is already on the pill and if not I believe there are other pills for that and they are probably on standby at the police station/hospital. Or one could walk into PP and get one. The same goes for any medications required for diseases that may result from a rape. Aren’t those given automatically, along with tests at the hospital when someone goes for a rape kit?

Offering women subsidized birth control costs the government much less than unwanted kids do. If its not about legislating morality and *entirely* about cost-benefit analysis you should be in favor of subsidized birth control.

But we all know its about legislating morality, costs be damn. So because women having sex without the risk of pregnancy makes conservatives uncomfortable they’d rather see birth rates (and orphanage/welfare costs) go up. Hypocrisy thy name is social conservatism.

red_herring on August 7, 2012 at 3:31 PM

Why not apply the standard Liberal response here. A police officer could be hired for every 20 women who are on birth control paid for through our tax dollars. With that increase in law enforcement rapes would drammatically decline making birth control unnecessary for the prevention of rape.

Well, that’s why I said I think she is a big, fat liar. She pulled that number out of her butt. That number is not based on anything except, how would it look if she had her fake testimony session saying that she needs $48 a year? She came up with the number, no one here did. She opened herself up to ridicule by being ridiculous.

Well, that’s why I said I think she is a big, fat liar. She pulled that number out of her butt. That number is not based on anything except, how would it look if she had her fake testimony session saying that she needs $48 a year? She came up with the number, no one here did. She opened herself up to ridicule by being ridiculous.

Night Owl on August 7, 2012 at 4:02 PM

Ahh, so people who LIE to congress are sluts. Man, “slut” has so many definitions, it can be tough to keep track of.

red_herring on August 7, 2012 at 4:03 PM

So you feel it’s perfectly okay to demand the property and time of others?

Chip on August 7, 2012 at 4:00 PM

She can demand all she wants, we taxpayers don’t have to give it top her .

burrata on August 7, 2012 at 4:04 PM

Anyways, people who don’t buy bc have sex too you know! And some bc costs more than others, but that doesn’t necessarily mean those who buy the more expensive are doing it more often.

Can you be specific. It sounds like you’re making an argument against the very notion of taxation.

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

red_herring on August 7, 2012 at 3:58 PM

I forgot that they banned the morning after pill that is standard treatment in most hospitals for rape victims. Mind sending me a link to that?

How many women do you know that take birth control to prevent pregnancy from rape? I know many women who actually could afford BC prior to Ms. Fluke and none of them have ever stated that they take birth control to prevent pregnancy from rape. As a matter of fact (thankfully), I know precisely 0 women who have been raped.

I wonder if “Julia” was raped only to be saved because Obama paid for her birth control.

libfreeordie on August 7, 2012 at 3:57 PM

Idiocy thy name is Socialist Moontardism…

You guys sent up a liar to beg for me to buy her idiotically overpriced birth control pills for Rec Sex….

I paid for my gal pal’s romper room baby prevention and by Gadfry her exotic jetsetting boytoy can do the same….

the argument against her getting free candy is exactly the same one you are using against the rich maintaining current tax rates….

here I’ll show you…..

“The nation has far more money to be invested, spent, or saved(thereby stabilizing inflationary pressures with a QE3 orgasm) if the Federales can quit spending like drunken sailors and let Mitt Romney and Harry reid keep some more of their millions….”

yeah if sound fiscal policy was your guys’ goal instead of BS “social justice” like Pelosi said in ’06 your boyfriend wouldn’t be spending 1.7 trillion spare dollars over intake per annum…..

Its been devastated that Rasmussen has a GOP bias, so add +2 to Obama’s total and you probably have an accurate representation of the CO electorate. Even in Rasmussen Romney can’t post a lead in CO.

Slade73 on August 7, 2012 at 4:08 PM

liberals defended Fluke against Limbaugh’s attacks, pretending she was simply some new-to-politics college student being unfairly maligned by conservatives..

Dustin, you’re joking right? He called her a “slut” and a “prostitute.” That’s why people (liberals and conservatives) were defending her.

red_herring on August 7, 2012 at 2:53 PM

red_herring on August 7, 2012 at 4:10 PM

But we all know its about legislating morality…

libfreeordie on August 7, 2012 at 3:57 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

Why, too, did this activist (Fluke) enroll in a Catholic college that didn’t cover contraception in its medical plan if it’s all such a big deal to her? If she’s good enough to get into Georgetown, she should have easily been accepted at a secular college with a medical plan that covers what she wants.

Unless, of course, activism is her goal all along?

Obama is using Fluke the same way Sheehan was used. One day, Fluke will be discarded like an old newspaper, except among a small minority of lefties who invite her to occasional speaking engagements at $20K a pop.
