As I write, Rush has opened his show with a discussion that puts his Saturday apology to Sandra Fluke. You will remember Ms Fluke. She is the 30 year old Georgetown babe pretending to be a 23 year old law student who complained of the expense involved in contraception for her 3 times a day habit that most of us know as the old "bump and grind."
Rush has made it clear that his apology was sincere and, indeed, he sounds sincere to me. Among other remarks, he admitted that he had " . . . .descended to their level when I used those two words to describe Sandra Fluke." He went on to say, “This is not about contraception, that’s what Obama wanted to turn this into, so the Democrats played the game,” and, in that admission, Rush spoke of the real issue in all this.
His comments (Rush's) kept the focus on "contraception" when the continuing issue must be Obama's blatant disregard for the Constitution, our 240 year history on the subject in question. and his battle against faith based institutions while claiming to be a "Christian."
Understand that Obama's attack on religion began with his commencement speeches at Notre Dame and Georgetown University, in the late spring of 2009. My wife and I talked about his speeches at these two schools. We wondered "Why these Catholic schools" when Obama, himself, is an abortion freak, the most pro-abortion president we have ever had? Our conclusion? He was chalking up victories like a gunfighter notches his gun handles, counting the number of victims he can claim as his own. His attendance at Georgetown, was the more egregious of the two occasions. It was at Georgetown that he ordered the very name of "Jesus" covered over before he would deliver his speech.
No Christian would ever order such a thing.
Anyway - with Rush's apology, we just might see the focus of this debate change almost overnight. With that, we will see the end of any advantage the Left thought they had developed over the past three weeks and they will be left with their angst against the Constitution and your church, synagogue or mosgue.
