Rep. Joe Walsh spoke to a crowd in Addison, IL, today and leveled an attack on Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown Law student who has been an outspoken advocate for no-cost birth control for women. Walsh even said that it’s “embarrassing” that women like Fluke feel “entitled” to no-cost birth control.
Yes, Deadbeat Dad, hostile, lowlife, bullying loudmouth who thought nothing of insulting veteran Tammy Duckworth with his now infamous, “Female, wounded veteran … ehhh” Joe Walsh is at it again, this time telling an educated, eloquent, courageous champion of women’s rights to get a job:
“How about this? This one kills me, then I’ll be done with my rant.
“So at the Democratic Convention Wednesday night their first prime time speaker was Sandra Fluke — Fluke, Fluke, whatever her name is.
“Think about this: a 31-32 year old law student who’s been a student for life, who gets up there in front of a national audience and tells the American people, “I want America to pay for my contraceptives.” You’re kidding me. Go get a job. Go get a job Sandra Fluke.
“This is what, I was offended. We’ve got Americans who are struggling. We’ve got parents in this country who are struggling to buy sneakers that their kids can wear to school that just started. We’ve got parents up and down my district who are barely keeping their house. And, and, and, we have to be confronted by a woman, the Democratic Party this is what they stand for. Their going to put a woman in front of us who is complaining that the country — you, me and you — won’t pay the 9 dollars per month to pay for her contraceptives.
“How crazy is this? In a way it’s not her fault, because we teach people this stuff. You go back to fairness, we teach young people this. Don’t worry, government will take care of you. You’re having trouble with your student loans? Don’t worry, government will be there for you.
“We are raising the Sandra Flukes of the world. We’re raising Americans who don’t know how to take care of themselves, who feel entitled. This a woman who feels entitled that we all should pay for her contraceptives. This is what we are teaching Americans? That was embarrassing. That was embarrassing.”
Yes, you small-minded windbag, it was embarrassing. But not for Sandra Fluke.
Just great. Ready to vote for her in 2020. Via Mediaite until I can find it from somewhere else.
Now this is a fun line up. And yes, Longoria will get us tons of attention. Plus, it’s a nice play after all the women bashing the GOP has been doing.
The Democratic National Convention Committee unveiled a list of prominent women Wednesday to speak at party’s upcoming convention in Charlotte, including Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards and Lilly Ledbetter, the woman who gave the name to President Obama’s signature pay equity law.
Among the speakers are Wisconsin Rep. Tammy Baldwin, the openly gay Democratic Senate candidate; Illinois congressional candidate and Iraq war veteran Tammy Duckworth; Maryland Sen. Barbara Mikulski, the longest-serving female senator and Nancy Keenan, who heads NARAL Pro-Choice America.
The speaker who may draw the most media attention: actress Eva Longoria, who is a national co-chair of Obama’s campaign.
Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown student who has been a surrogate for Obama since her showdown this year with Rush Limbaugh, is also on the list, as are Montana Superintendent of Public Instruction Denise Juneau and Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of the late president.
President Obama, a wonderful women’s health advocate himself:
Sandra Fluke is “one tough and poised young lady… an eloquent advocate for women’s health. I suspect she’ll be doing some even greater things as time goes on.”
“I actually like the name [Obamacare], because I do care!”
