Obama wants us to judge him by his deeds, not his words. Let’s do so.


President Obama today explained that he telephoned Sandra Fluke in response to Rush Limbaugh’s controversial comments because

“I thought about Malia and Sasha, and one of the things I want them to be able to do is speak their minds in a civil and thoughtful way, and I don’t want them attacked or called horrible names when they’re being good citizens.”

Yesterday, in a different context, Obama gave a speech stating that he should be judged based on his actions and not his words:

“I’m also mindful of the proverb, ‘A man is judged by his deeds, not his words.’  So if you want to know where my heart lies, look no further than what I have done.”

So let’s look:  Last Thursday, Obama’s super PAC accepted a check for One Million Dollars from Bill Maher.  That would be the same Bill Maher who

called Sarah Palin a “dumb twat” and a “cunt” (“there’s just no other word for her”);

called Palin and Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann “boobs” and “two bimbos”; and

made a joke about Rick Santorum’s wife using a vibrator.

In short, Limbaugh called a woman a “slut” after she announced in a public forum that she requires $1,000 for birth control every year and wants the taxpayers to pay for it.  Limbaugh later apologized.  Maher routinely calls conservative female elected officials who have never discussed their sex lives in public “cunt,” “twat,” “boobs,” and “bimbos” on numerous occasions with no apology.

So, let’s accept Obama’s invitation to judge him by his deeds and not his words and look at what he has done:  What he has said is that those who speak their minds in a civil and thoughtful way ought not to be attacked or called horrible names.  What he has done is accepted One Million Dollars from a man who has made a career out of attacking conservative women and calling them vile names merely for expressing a conservative point of view.

We can judge Obama by his deeds and not his words.  Unfortunately, Sasha and Malia will have to learn to do as their father says and not as he does.
