His comment on Rush Limbaugh’s calling a law student a prostitute for supporting contraceptive coverage under health insurance?
I’ll just say this which is itâ€™s not the language I would have used. Iâ€™m focusing on the issues I think are significant in the country today and thatâ€™s why Iâ€™m here talking about jobs and Ohio.
“Not the language I would have used.” Now that’s tough. And that’s what he came up with after ducking the question all day.
How can you expect Romney to stand up to Putin or Ahmadi-Nejad if he can’t even stand up to an obese bully with a microphone?
Update Rick Santorum, on the other hand, has millimeter-sized stones rather than micron-sized stones:
He’s being absurd, but that’s you know, an entertainer can be absurd. He’s in a very different business than I am.
Try calling one of Rick Santorum’s daughters a slut and a prostitute, and I bet you’d discover he knows stronger language than “absurd.”
Barack Obama, on the other hand, knows how to behave. And he also knows how to seize a political opportunity when his opponents hand him one. But that’s the point, isn’t it? This year, we will have an election between a party whose members and leaders think that contraception is evil and a party whose members and leaders think it’s an essential part of health care. “No difference?” Now that’s absurd.
