    Losing a child at any age is the worst thing that can happen to the parents...and I'm sure there are many other family members and friends that are grieving. May God grant them peace in their hearts.

    In actual dollars, President Obama’s $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. It’s no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.

    Under Obama’s own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.

    Terrible that this happened.
    Is this really the time to be political?

    Best wishes for the Durbin family, I hope they get through this. Losing a child has to be one of the most difficult situations ever.

    40 is far too young. :(

    nope. You're right.


    His job should be in jeopardy because he's a slime bag.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Prayers, Senator.
    Nothing helps a bad mood like spreading it around.

    what because his daughter dies he should get re-elected? I feel for his loss - but I'd feel better if he had a different loss - a loss of power.

    Such a loss has to put everything else, including politics, into perspective.

    There was a day when she was his little girl. And she always was and always will be.
    Nothing else matters.


    Thanks. Damn now I seem to have something in my eyes.

    You gotta be careful projecting human feeling onto a leftist like this. YES we can hope that this is what he thinks and feels . . . . but with the left you can never be certain.
