Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, who amazingly is the number 2 Democrat in the Senate, took to his Facebook account over the weekend to make the outrageous claim that a House GOP Leader told President Obama that he “cannot stand to look at” him. On Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney dismissed Durbin’s claim, saying the incident “didn’t happen.”
“It did not happen,” Carney said, as reported by The Hill, saying he discussed the incident with a “participant in the meeting.”
Durbin’s erroneous claim is just the latest incident of Democrats trying to vilify their political opponents. Rather than argue policy disagreements, Democrats are intent on de-legitimizing their Republican opponents. The media ought, however, to delegitimize Democrat smearing of their opposition.
Durbin lied. QED.
