  •  Thanks for bringing that to my attention (0+ / 0-)

    i can't believe the gullible nature of people who insist on believing the NYTimes and FDL lie when the video of the remarks they distorted is online.

    •  The rabid obsession with attacking FDL, (0+ / 0-)

      regardless of the merits of any issue, by some on this site is likewise a source of astonishment.

      The New York Times wrote:

      [Durbib] also admonished "bleeding heart liberals" to be open to program reductions to restore fiscal balance.

      Durbin said:

      And  the bleeding heart liberals on this Commission have to open their minds to what it takes to inspire competition and economic growth in our economy and make real sacrifices to strengthen our nation.

      When those remarks caused consternation on his own side he certainly didn't complain that the NYT had it wrong--that "real sacrifices" didn't mean "cuts."

      But in your mind, quoting a news article in which "real sacrifices" is interpreted as "program reductions" is a "lie."  

      Rather than attacking me for being gullible, maybe you could reflect on whether you're being fair and intellectually honest.
