NPR's Steve Inskeep asks Durbin, one of President Barack Obama's strongest supporters and political mentors: "Are you willing to say flat out, 'Democrats are willing to pass this bill that most Americans tell pollsters they oppose, even without a single Republican vote. We're prepared to do that, if that's what's necessary?'They don't care what Republicans, Independents or Libertarians think - they only care about what THEIR constituency thinks, LIBERAL/PROGRESSIVES! They know what is best. Heaven forbid that anyone else have an opinion unless it is in line with theirs. Bi-partianship my ass! -SP
"I hope it doesn't come to that,'' Durbin replies in the interview, "but I can tell you, at the end of the day, if we end up doing nothing, the American people have a right to be upset. In the end, many of those who are critical of that package, I think when they see it in action are going to feel a lot different, more positive."(my emphasis-SP)
