Racist or Not, Harry Reid in HUGE Trouble
The Lid/Las Vegas Review-Journal ^ | 1/9/09 | The Lid

Posted on 01/09/2010 6:22:49 PM PST by Shellybenoit

Senate Majority leader Harry Reid apologized today for, private conversation during the campaign, in which Reid, while attempting to speak favorably of Obama, reportedly said the nation was ready for a black President, especially one who is “light-skinned” and has “no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.”

I deeply regret using such a poor choice of words. I sincerely apologize for offending any and all Americans, especially African Americans for my improper comments,” Reid stated, before highlighting his support for Obama, efforts to integrate the Strip and promote diversity in the Senate.

The President Instantly accepted Reid's Apology.

“I accepted Harry’s apology without question because I’ve known him for years, I’ve seen the passionate leadership he’s shown on issues of social justice and I know what’s in his heart. As far as I am concerned, the book is closed.”

Even Al Sharpton, professional racist, cut the Senator some slack.

Reid's unfortunate remarks are the least of his problems, the Senate leader charged with pushing through Obama's agenda, represents a state that is not happy with Obama's agenda. According to latest polls Reid is in HUGE trouble more than half of Nevadans give him an unfavorable job rating. And people are speculating that he may join his friend Chris Dodd as a "senior citizen who has become a victim of Obamacare."

Nothing will come of this now that Obama has waved his magic wand. He let him off without so much as a hand slap.

"Hairy Read" can make this right.

Just drive slow by the "school book depository" in Dallas.

Surely American voters will see through Reid’s latest lame attempt at getting the Bubba vote.

But it won’t be unanimous. Harry will still vote for himself.
