Senator Dick Durbin deflects, bobs and weaves at hard line question

Posted on: August 13, 2011

A Conservative satirist and commentator William J. Kelly, a native from Chicago’s Southside, confronted Senator Dick Durbin at a press conference with the members of the mainstream media. Senator Durbin was talking about the downgrade crisis. Of course there were the usual soft ball questions from the media, except when Mr. Kelly asked him this question,” Senator, you’ve blamed the tea party…but do you bear any responsibility for this downgrade crisis?”

Fair enough question don’t you think?

But then of course this is Senator Durbin. You remember him; he’s the one that hysterically compared the treatment of the Gitmo detainees to Nazis, Soviet gulags, and Pol Pot. While calling for an end to “hateful” rhetoric, he’s the one who wrongfully pointed his crooked finger at the Tea Party Movement and Gov. Sarah Palin, blaming them for the Tucson massacre and the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Recently, he’s the one that, hypocritically, accused the Tea Party Republicans of “political extortion” in the debt ceiling debate.

So it was no surprise that he took the opportunity, while the markets were tanking, to have a press conference and dish to his friends in the Chicago media about the S&P downgrade of our nation’s sterling credit rating. But then of course, he refused to answer Mr. Kelly’s question. In fact, he called security to escort Mr. Kelly out of the press conference.

No surprise to us Americans who feel that we always get the bums rush when we ask “fair questions” or want to know the truth. All Durbin can do is talking points, spin and lie his way through a press conference as well as on the Senate floor.

Believe me it is worth watching.
