Axis of Right

Three Native Rhode Islanders Commenting From the Right on Politics and Anything Else

Name: Durbin, Senator Dick

Posted by Ryan on April 27, 2007

Senate Majority Whip, Dick “No Nickname Needed” Durbin, barked this week about his frustration on pre-war intelligence.  He believed that the intelligence he saw in 2002 showed him that Bush was misleading the public.  So he was one of 23 Senators who voted against it.  Apparently, Democrat Jay Rockefeller (who’s still not in jail for some reason) saw the same exact intelligence and even went as far as to say that Saddam was actively trying to get nukes!  And all before Rockefeller voted for the Iraq War Resolution in October 2002! 

What did Durbin see that Rockefeller and the American people did not see?  Short answer:  Nothing! 

Convenient politicking that ignores the fact that fighting over why we went to war does nothing to solve today’s problems, but encourages divisiveness and a sign of weakness to our enemies.  Keep in mind he’s also the guy who compared Gitmo to Nazi concentration camps, Stalinist gulags and Pol Pot’s killing fields.  He never truly apologized for those remarks or for this truly damaging and demoralizing symbolic vote, which bothers me being the brother of an Iraq War vet.
