Obama, a Hero or Political Stuntman? Reflections on Rush Limbaugh and Bill Maher

By J. Paul

Rush Limbaugh's inappropriate comments made recently on his radio program regarding Sarah Fluke's testimony on the issue of government funded controceptives has generated quite a firestorm. President Obama actually took it upon himself to personally call Sarah Fluke to apologize to her for the insults. Limbaugh apologized as well, although it was a day late and a dollar short. So now the question is, will Obama return Bill Maher's recent one million dollar donation and call Sarah Palin to apologize for him calling her a MILF and making other outrageous and obscene character assaults? The President has talked about the necessity of public civility, which is all too often lacking in public discourse. Well I happen to agree, but as another president once said, "The buck stops here." In respect to this moral contradiction in which President Obama is found only serving his own self-interest, everyone should take note that he is NOT the hero that the press and schools have made him out to be. President Obama is no more than a political stuntman. He is a sham and unfit to sit at the side of such notables as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
