Skip to comments.Durbin dodges questions on no 'God,' 'Jerusalem' in Democratic Party platform (VIDEO)
Posted on 09/04/2012 7:27:38 PM PDT by Nachum
On Fox News Channels 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 dont 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.
Im 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. Lets get on with the agenda about creating jobs in America, about justice in this country.

Yeah, that's pretty much it...
Durbin the Vermin. Disgusting vile little traitor.
He might regret the “trifle” reference.
The LORD is no respecter of persons.
Turbin couldn’t defend the indefensivable. What’s new?
how dare you question my senator dick dirtbag durbin “turban”.
are you against the mentally handicapped? have no compassion for the insane?
I am aghast! i am sure he can play with a rubber ducky in the bathtub.
although i am sure he couldn’t command a toy boat in a bathtub.
what? you make fun of the incompetent?
can’t you be politically correct? my God! he is a liar! opps, sorry a lawyer.
I am amazed that you would attack this rat shill. he can’t help it!
attacking the handicapped like that. you should be ashamed!
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.
The Democrats aren’t godless - their god is Obama.
2:34.....”Standing UP to Israel”.
You are right!!! RUSH will be all over that WORD tomorrow! Shame on the DNC.... if you are NOT godless,why not leave GOD IN?
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.
The road is wide.
The True Path is narrow, and few be those who follow it.
He will be praying to the mountains to fall on him, to hide from the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords........
Don't forget the members of the LGBT alliance, the atheists, the communists, and the leftists who identify with any and or all of the above....
Thanks Nachum. Just harping on a trifle, he sez.
“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?
