White House: Durbin quote a 'misunderstanding'

LINK

Durbin, the Senate majority whip, posted on his Facebook wall over the weekend that during a White House meeting, one GOP leader told Obama: “I cannot even stand to look at you.”
Durbin’s comments — leveled at a Republican lawmaker he refused to name during a meeting he didn’t attend — were called into question on both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue. House Republicans and the Obama administration refuted the account and the GOP sought an apology.
White House press secretary Jay Carney said on Wednesday that the remark was never given. “I looked into this and spoke with somebody who was in that meeting, and it did not happen,” he told reporters at the White House briefing.

How much play will this get?

I heard it on 'Faux' news, and even though I linked it to Politico, it can't be true.

Amirite?

It was "hypothetical."

More like "hypocritical"

He jumps on his facebook and now the White House says it never happens.

Now, he won't retract his statement, even after more facts have come out about the meeting.

Sounds just like a bomb throwing progressive.

The WH is trying to kill it as a rumor because whoever claimed they said it first stood to set a fundraising record. Apparently 243 different members of the Senate and House claimed responsibility for the commet.

This dude is a joke. He's a freaking programmed lib who tries to cover his shame with "I'm an independent." It's pathetic and I actually feel sorry for him.

I know its a strech but i wish somebody would take the leap and introduce a bill----would be funny to see the vote count
