In this story you can read how Durbin tearfully apoligized for his comments last week.
Durbin said,“I made reference to Nazis, to Soviets, and other repressive regimes. Mr. President, I’ve come to understand that’s a very poor choice of words.”
A poor choice of words. You know he could have said this last week and I would have been fine with it. I mean all of us have said foolish things in a moment of passion.
But where does that leave those who supported Durbin in this thread?
You guys could have complained about Abu Ghraib, Gitmo, and our prisons in Afghanistan. You could have condemned, if you desired, the treatment of prisoners. You could have done that AND said Durbin was out of line.
But you are so rabidly anti-Bush that you must, MUST , side with anyone who is giving him any measure of grief.
So now that Durbin has admitted that his words were poorly chosen, can you? Or are you still going to defend a position that the good Senator himself abandoned today?
