Senator Durbin compares death of four Americans in Libya to a football game

Did Senator Durbin equate the deaths of four Americans in Libya with a football game? Is he that morally bankrupt? It seems so.

Unreal. First, the four Americans killed were just “bumps in the road.” Then, they didn’t matter at all, according to lying liar who lies Stephanie Cutter. No one would care at all, you see, if it wasn’t for that dastardly Romney bitterly clinging to human decency.

Then, their deaths were “not optimal,” according to President Obama. The moral bankruptcy is staggering.

Durbin continued his fail throughout his appearance on “Fox News Sunday.” Spinning like the wind no longer works; Americans are onto you.

Shouldn’t be “politicized.” But, Reagan! Senator Durbin is the one grossly politicizing murdered Americans, and dismissing their deaths.

Indeed. Let’s change that in November.

Update: Flashback to another morally bankrupt and unhinged Durbin remark. Remember when he likened Gitmo military staff to Nazis, Soviet gulag operators and Pol Pot?

    Wow…just wow :-(

    It’s the ‘optimal’ Democrat speaking. Democrats are trying hard to twist the Benghazi tragedy, but get tangled in their own twists.

  • Hiraghm

    Would it have been okay if he’d made reference to “Monday morning quarterbacking” instead?

    • TugboatPhil

      I don’t know about that. I’ve always hated hearing football coaches refer to their games as a “battle.” While there may be some tough, physical exertion on the field, no one has ever gone onto a field of play intending to kill or be killed. There have been deaths, and severe physical injuries during games and practices, they aren’t a battle, in the truest sense of the word.

    • YeahWeWill

      Let’s see; if one of the deceased was a son of yours then what would you think of the situation?

  • AUBraves

    The sad part is that these type statements show that the Dems do not consider these topics thought-worthy. There is no concerted effort by them to deal with this. They go out and make a fool of themselves because they don’t consider this to be an optimal issue.

    • YeahWeWill

      Sadly, they also believe their constituency is stupid enough to believe them. Unlike Eva Longoria who thinks that those who don’t believe in them are stupid….Can’t figure either one out :)

    While I’m really not a sports aficionado, even I’m fairly certain that the AFL and NFL have never used RPG’s on or off the field!

      Hey wasn’t that the name of a doctor TV show back in the 1960s?

    Every situation like the attack on the Benghazi consulate under an Obama Presidency will conclude the same. The Obama process takes too ling to arrive at a decision. Too many political scenarios to have to run through, too much time wasted on what the fallout will be. Damn it send the marines, send air support , send every available resource and save our citizens. Don’t watch them die, or even worse, go to bed while they are fighting for their lives.

  • Amanda St.Thomas

    Shouldn’t it give the citizens of this country a clue about how the Dems really feel about us all? For this administration and elected officials to refer to the murder of our citizens in such a callous way speaks VOLUMES about their true concern for us.

  • TocksNedlog

    There’s gonna be a debate on foreign policy TOMORROW and they’re still playing the “politicizing a tragedy” card?

    • Madelyn Martine

      Think I just heard Debbie “Shirley Temple hair” Wasserman Schulz talking AGAIN about politicizing a tragedy. Whoever told that woman her hair looked good in ringlets needs to OPEN THEIR EYES.

    • Jack Deth

      Hi, Tocks:

      Pathetic doesn’t begin to describe it!

      Expect a complete and full blown obfuscation and re-write of the events surrounding Benghazi before tomorrow’s debate. Obama and his slimy minions will desperately try to put some daylight between him, the deaths of Americans and multiple acts of war.

      • R0nin

        I hope Hilary likes it under that bus, she’s gonna be thrown under it again. Because the Buck stops anywhere but with Obowmao.

      • David

        I just read that the re-write is going on right now enabling Obama to further hide the truth at the debate. I hope this time the moderator (the old guy with no credibility compared to the fat gal with less credibility) does not jump to Obama’s defense.

  • Madelyn Martine

    In Illinois if you want to insult someone you call them “a sack of Durbin.”

    • stuckinIL4now

      There’s also the “lying” sack of Durbin.

  • Jack Deth

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh, liberals!

    They smack themselves in the head with a hammer and cut their own throats so often in front of God and everybody. That they aren’t even aware that it’s going on!

    Heck, it’s gotten to the point where they may be enjoying it!!!

    It’s not optimal that the bumps in the road during a football game are blamed on coach Romney


    Turbin Durbin your day will come. May God forgive you, you will need it.

  • hetrack

    Turbin Durbin is just a “bump in the road”, therefore NOT OPTIMAL!

  • Jim Harvey

    ARE YOU ALL FINALLY GETTING IT? YOU and YOU and YOU, and your children, and parents and friends MEAN NOTHING TO THE DEMOCRATS. Canonfodder. There’s plenty more where YOU came from. There are hundreds of thousands of blind followers who believe every single LIE that democrats tell. YOU can change the focus of this country if you have the SPINE to vote them out in November.

  • DJ_Fisher

    So what game do we compare it to when we line up the treasonous whores and execute them by firing squad?

    • R0nin

      Ring-Around-A-Rosie: they all fall down! (Mind you, I don’t actually advocate doing that– unless it goes through the proper legal channels first.)

      • DJ_Fisher

        Legal? Is the Constitution legal enough??

        • R0nin

          Exactly what I meant. It has to be done by Constitutional means.

  • Stacey Holmdahl

    Mr. Durbin, it’s not politicizing. When your own President and his Administration tell perpetual untruths about the incident, the only way to get to the truth is to keep talking about it. Perhaps if such absurd lies weren’t perpetually foisted on us, we wouldn’t need to keep having this dialogue.

  • Edward Cropper

    See my blog for Durbin’s full explanation


  • Anna E

    The only way Benghazi could be compared to a football game, is if one foot ball team somehow acquired the plays of the other team, but chose not to use it.

  • mystere

    Dick Durbin needs to do one of these things: Legally change his last name to Head, change his middle name to Head and use his full new name, or get his brain checked. He is as unhinged as Joe Biden.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Wow, what a major fumble. Unfortunately we have to wait until 2014 to get the opportunity to kick his sanctimonious butt out of the US Senate but I can’t say that enough of the idiot voters in IL will see the light by then.

    • nc

      Fumble…good one…

  • nc

    Can you believe the Dems are STILL whining about how “inappropriate” it was for Romney to criticize those early apologies coming out of the Cairo embassy shortly before the attacks? Bill Richardson was on Meet The Press this morning still pushing this. They know they’re in deep trouble on this whole issue, but they’re all in, and just keep digging themselves in ever deeper.

    And yes, like a football game, their only hope is to run out the clock, to keep enough of the public in the dark before the election.

  • Steve_J

    This isn’t something unusual for Durbin he did after all compare U S troops to Nazis, Pol Pot, and the Soviets.
    To be fair, he later issued a non-apology apology.


    It’s not optimal that Dick Durbin is acting like a dick!

  • Wigglesworth111

    What Durbin is saying is that Republicans are playing Monday morning quarterback. This is completely false. There were a series of terrorist attacks leading up to 9/11/12 and nothing was done to increase security. The British closed their consulate in response to the deteriorating security situation, but we did nothing because Obama and the State Department were playing politics.

  • Bill Bradham

    Inappropriate Dick is Inappropriate.

  • John Hanover

    Even if you compared it to the dismal and useless NFL Europe it’s still not acceptable. Then again it is Durbin the Suppository from Illinois. Out of shame and various political and economic crimes Illinois should forfeit their electoral college votes and Durbin’s salary for a year.

  • David

    A grieving mother about the death of her son at the hands of the Libyan muslim extremists and Obama’s failure to tell the truth: “My son is not very optimal, he is very dead.” Remember that quote when you go to vote.

  • David

    On George Stephogopulos’ show communist Van Jones said, “Obama is a towering figure on foreign policy.” I think he meant to say that Obama is a cowering figure on foreign policy.

    • R0nin

    What a dick (literally).

    The sports analogy wasn’t optimal

  • Gary Denton

    Wow, really trying to distract from what he really said – Rep. Issa released the names of Libyans working undercover for the CIA. That is actually illegal by the way.
