Dem. Senator Dick Durbin Lies That Republican Said He Couldn’t Stand to Look at Obama

Illinois Senator Dick Durbin has not only been caught red (or blue) handed in a lie, but now he’s doubling down on that lie by claiming that a Republican leader in the House of Reps. told the President to his face that he “cannot stand to look at him.”

Senator Durbin, the second highest ranking Democrat in the U.S. Senate, took to his Facebook page to call Republicans names (as he usually does) and passed on the lie that Republican leadership hates Obama so much they “cannot even stand to look at” him.

Here is what Durbin posted on October 20 at 11AM:

Many Republicans searching for something to say in defense of the disastrous shutdown strategy will say President Obama just doesn’t try hard enough to communicate with Republicans. But in a “negotiation” meeting with the president, one GOP House Leader told the president: “I cannot even stand to look at you.”

What are the chances of an honest conversation with someone who has just said something so disrespectful?

But as soon as this calumny was belched out by the Soldier-hating Senator (see video above) denials from Republican leaders John Boehner and Eric Cantor were released. It just didn’t happen, they said.

Then, even Obama’s own press secretary, Jay Carney, agreed with the Republicans. Durbin is a liar.

“I looked into this and spoke with somebody who was in that meeting and it did not happen,” Carney told the media.

Durbin lied. Period.

But instead of backing down and telling folks that his source was wrong, Durbin is doubling down and insisting it happened despite having no proof at all.

Fox News’ Chad Pegram asked the Senator’s office about the claim. Durbin did not back down. Pegram says that Durbin is sticking by his lie.

This from the scumbag who said our soldiers are just like the Nazis (see video below).

    From Politico yesterday…

    “It’s worth noting that the only face-to-face meeting between Obama and House
    GOP leaders was on Oct. 10, and Durbin was not present.”

    Still, this isn’t surprising. The democrats get away saying the most vile things without any repercussions as we we saw during the so-called shutdown debacle.

    Maybe Durbin didn’t want to be outdone by the the Alan Grayson campaign.

    I hope the left is proud of their elected representatives and senators,
    Sad thing is, I have no doubt they are.

    Yep. The dems have to keep the spectre of racism alive even if they have to make everything up.

    In other news, it was announce that Sen Durbin will be named Oberlin College’s Man of the Year for his bravely standing up to left wing manufactured fake acts of racism.

    I hate it when men argue like bitches about who said what.

    ABC News claims that this whole bogus story was orchestrated by the White House. Perfect example of how obama can’t lead and is offended by anyone who disagrees with him.

    Durbin is a liberal; lying comprises much of his DNA.

    Tens of Millions of people cannot stand the very sound of his voice. He is patronizing, condescending, insulting and derogatory. He uses contrived inflections and pauses that boar people to tears, intentionally making it impossible to follow his thread-bare thoughts. He uses tricks of hypnosis to cow the weak-minded: …”The grass is green, the sky is blue, you love Socialism”…
    It is not the color brown I despise, it is the color red and his pinko minions in the press.
