Skip to comments.White House: Shutdown story Dick Durbin is telling is pretty bogus

In case you havent heard about this, Senator Dick Durbin claimed in a Facebook post that a House Republican told Barack Obama during the shutdown negotiations that I cannot even stand to look at you. Republicans vehemently denied it, and now the White House agrees:
White House press secretary Jay Carney on Wednesday flatly denied that a House Republican told President Obama I cannot even stand to look at you during negotiations over the government shutdown.
It did not happen, Carney said, saying he discussed the incident with a participant in the meeting.
Many Republicans searching for something to say in defense of the disastrous shutdown strategy will say President Obama just doesnt try hard enough to communicate with Republicans, Durbin said. 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? the Illinois Democrat added.
What are the chances of an honest conversation with an Illinois Democrat? Im just asking on a friends behalf.
Most of the country thinks it, at least the thinking part of the country. lol
The truth is - I WISH some repub had the cajones to say...
“I cannot even stand to look at you.”
I’m thinking censure.
$10 says those words came from Obama to a Republican
If it were Obama it would be more like.
I cannot.........even stand.........to look.............at you.
There has to be the long pauses in there. His pauses when he speaks are just odd.
This from someone who compared our troops to the Khmer Rouge.
They can only get so many words onto a teleprompter screen at one time.
Maybe Dick Durtbin has that conversation confused with something his wife said to him that morning.
Democrats are famous for their imaginary friends and enemies, like durbin’s phony constituent he claimed works at a motel where he stayed, and told a story of health care woe.
Like these uber-rich douchebags would consider staying at a motel.
Usually they all have their talking points well coordinated. Something must be up.
Perhaps he was only there for a few hours. (wink, wink)
Quite understandable. I've worn out three remotes changing the stations and muting the crap out of his mouth since his regime came to power.
I will say it, I cannot stand the sight of him.
The sound is even worse.
That goes for the Wookie too.
Well I certainly can’t stand to look at Obama. Or Durbin, Reid, Clinton etc, etc etc. So while Durbin is lying I could certainly empathize with anybody who said that.
"Geeez. I picked a bad day to stop sniffin' glue."
Maybe she meant next year’s returns.
She just mistakenly read the talking points for the NEXT shutdown, in January ;) zero and his minions already have it scripted.
What a fraud. Is anybody calling him out on the national stage? No.
Durbin lying? No!
But it’s seared...SEARED! in Durban’s memory.
When I heard him relate the “story” about him in a motel, the image of an elderly chicken hawk came immediately to mind.
