In July 4th Message… "Pol Pot Durbin" Slams Republicans For Not Supporting the Troops

Here is Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), supporting the troops as only a Democrat can back in June 2005:

Senator Durbin supporting the troops:

The actions of American troops are akin to something that “must have happened by Nazis, Soviets in their Gulags, or some mad regime, Pol Pot or others, that had no concern for human beings.”

And, here is Senator Richard Durbin (D-IL) lashing out at Republicans for not supporting the troops in the Democratic Radio Address, July 5, 2008:

There will be a lot of talk about patriotism over this Fourth of July weekend and many senators will rightfully praise our military, he added. But true patriotism means honoring the men and women in uniform who defend our freedoms — not just with words and flag lapel pins, but with actions befitting their great sacrifices.

Humility is not one of Mr. Durbin’s strengths.
