Senator Durbin Gives An Unsatisfactory Apology
Durbin Back Tracks
Durbin is in damage control now with this statement but America knows exactly what he said:
"I sincerely regret if what I said caused anyone to misunderstand my true feelings: Our soldiers around the world and their families at home deserve our respect, admiration and total support," he said. "My statement in the Senate was critical of the policies of this administration, which add to the risk our soldiers face."
Well we did not "misunderstand" your words or statement we have the exact comments here:

Senator, time to step down from your leadership position as number two, unless of course you do represent the views and convictions of the Democratic Party on this hideous matter. If you do then stay in your position and we will address that in 2006..................................
