Dick Durbin on the Senate floor tells it like it is.
The Bush Administration tortured people in Guantanamo Bay -- more precisely, under the Bush Administration's direction, U.S. servicemen and women tortured the enemy.
That's what bad countries do.
And Bush is a bad President.
And he has authorized some bad things.
So when Dick Durbin calls this out, what does the White House do?
They call for Durbin to apologize!
For telling the truth!
And call him "reprehensible!"
The people who won't permit photographs of American coffins coming back from the war, and the same Administration whose spokesman said shortly after 9/11 "people need to watch what they say" is now calling a United States Senator reprehensible for telling the truth!
They hide behind our troops. They hide their mistakes behind our troops.
These guys running the White House are appalling. They lie.
They lie about the war. They lie about the budget (remember, they threatened to fire a bureaurcrat for telling the truth about how much the Medicare prescription drug benefit will cost). They lie!
Here, as a reminder, are some of the lies about Iraq they told.
Push back, Dick Durbin. And Democrats ought to praise him and defend him for telling the truth and not let these liars try to bully him into silence.
