Durbin dodges questions on no 'God,' 'Jerusalem' in Democratic Party platform (VIDEO)
The Daily Caller ^ | 9/4/12 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 09/04/2012 7:27:38 PM PDT by Nachum

On Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Tuesday, Democratic Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin attempted to downplay news from earlier in the day that language about “God” and “Jerusalem” was stricken from the Democratic Party platform.

Durbin told host Bret Baier, who was broadcasting from the scene of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., that it is improper to glean from this that Democrats are godless people.

“Well, I can just basically tell you if the narrative that is being presented on your station and through your channel and your network is that the Democrats are godless people, they ought to know better,” Durbin said. “God is not a franchise of the Republican Party. Those of us who believe in God and those of us who dedicated our lives to helping others in the name of God don’t want to take a second seat to anyone who is suggesting that one word out of the platform means that the Democrats across America are godless.”

And Durbin attacked Baier, suggesting this was not a pressing issue, whereas jobs and the economy are.

“I’m just telling you that you are harping on a trifle,” he said. “We know that both parties are devoted to this country. Both parties are God-fearing parties. Let’s get on with the agenda about creating jobs in America, about justice in this country.”

“I’m just telling you that you are harping on a trifle,”

That's an inescapable concession to the fact.

Senator Durbin, the D party leadership has made a terrible, terrible mistake with all the anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-Jewish party statements and positions these past 4 years.
A terrible mistake.
We sure would like to see you working to get the D party back onto the rails again....
Decent Americans used to have a genuine choice between two fairly decent major parties.... now there is no choice.
Think about it.
Please.

the delegates get to vote on what's in and what's out in the Platform

They have about 100 muslim delegates.

connect the dots.

Muslims deem dogs unclean.

Many muslims have been let into the ranks of the Homeland Security advisory positions in this regime. (Even Major Hussain - the Fort Hood terrorist murdered - oops, sorry, the man who was involved in a ‘workplace violence’ incident.

Get the picture?

Now, instead of bomb sniffing dogs - WE and our children are sexually molested...can you hear the laughter?

connect the dots.

And we have meekly accepted it all - so, we deserve it.

Gonna stay home ‘cause you are too pure to vote for a Mormon - or your self-righteous hate prevents you from sullying your purity by voting for Romney/Ryan.

If so, you're no better than the rest of our enemies.

If you are one of the above, don't bother responding. I haven't the least interest in anything you have to say.

this is NOT directed at YOU. Nachum - ;o) - but to the spitters

The few dems with vestigial values are going along to get along.

Right over the cliff into the abyss.

“Durbin the Vermin. Disgusting vile little traitor.”

And a thin skinned one at that! My Goodness, he couldn’t even take the question without projecting some right-wing bias to the question of, “why remove the word God.”

What a cretin.

I’ve not watched one minute of the Communist National Convention, but just curious, has anyone during any speech mentioned the word God, or said God bless America when they finished praising Obummer and tearing down Romney?

In answer to your question, I do believe Michelle did say "God bless America" at the end of her speech.

I can't say for sure because I can't stand to watch any of these speakers...but someone mentioned it on an earlier thread.

The Democrat shills tout a Republican “War on Women” but downplay it when Obama repeatedly drops references to The Creater/God from readings of the Declaration of Independence.

..... Hmmmmmm ..... 'God,' 'Jerusalem' removed from Democratic Party platform"...... Well ....I must say .... we have heard the usual reason given to us for this type of thing at least a million times before .... and I guarantee that it will be the same "Cover" this time when the Dems begin to take fire for these fumbles.

..... I mean ... the reason is obviously going to be .... "OOPS .... it was a Typo and by the time they noticed the error it was too late to make the change!!!" ..... And the media will lap this excuse up and move on to the next task to help bolster the "One" who was sent to deliver us from freedom.

Dostoyevsky......if elected,....’Now, all things are permitted.” Without God, we have only ourselves to look to to know right and ‘ought’. That is the strong man....the man with the power....the man with the guns. That man, if liberals prevail, will be Obama...He, and he alone will determine law, what is right, what we ought to do, and to whom we owe our debt.....that will be self-proclaimed leader, Barack Hussein Obama. Tyrany will prevail.

Oddly, the democrats on the after-convention shows are sounding like Clergy when asked about the omission.

Let’s watch the story fester awhile.... That removal of ‘God’, in conjunction with the hostilities toward Catholics via HHS actions, is sealing Obama’s political doom with more people than he can fathom.

He’s openly hostile to certain faiths, (Christian), and overly tolerant of others, (Islam).

But to remove “God” 60 days out from election. The president is committing political suicide before our eyes and I don’t think he sees it — which is fine by me!!

I can’t escape the feeling that this is going to be a landslide election of Romney.

But not improper to glean that they created a Godless document.

The best part, the juicy part, was when Bret asked why Obama did not get his stuff passed while he had both houses with Democrat control. Durban replied Teddy Kennedy was sick and couldn’t come to the floor to vote.

He blamed a dead man for Obama’s failure.

Have we all forgotten that this is the same man who compared US troops to Nazi soldiers?

Durbin is a pig who should have been voted out long, long ago.
