I'm no fan of Dick Durbin, but if what he says is true, then whoever made the comment was indeed disrespectful. Of course, if someone did make this comment then he/she was clearly expressing the feelings of many Americans, but for a guy who has been trained in debate and decorum, this would be inexcusable behavior.
The No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, Sen. Dick Durbin, says that a House Republican leader told off President Barack Obama during a negotiation meeting, and that they are so disrespectful it’s practically impossible to have a conversation with them.
“In a ‘negotiation’ meeting with the president, one GOP House Leader told the president: ‘I cannot even stand to look at you,’” Durbin wrote in a post on his Facebook page over the weekend. [POLITICO]
