Skip to comments.Dems Coddle Sen. Harry Reid After “Negro” Comment
Posted on 01/10/2010 6:07:37 PM PST by Starman417
Contrast their embrace of Reid with the GOP effort led by President Bush to dump then Majority Leader Trent Lott!
I've often said that when it comes to scandals, the GOP likes to clean up the mess as quickly as possible (sometimes a bit too quickly). When it comes to Democrats, they like to leave the garbage in the living room and let it stink.
We're seeing another example of that with the Harry Reid scandal where the Senate Majority Leader spoke of then candidate Obama as appealing because he was "light skinned" and spoke "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one."
Harry Reid did a quick round of phone calls apologizing to every African-American leader in sight, including President Obama who "accepted Harrys apology without question."
As a warning that there is perhaps more to Reid's comment than a slip of the tongue we have the Senator's own words from 2002 after Lott was forced to resign:
Asked if the episode would serve as a warning to weigh his own words carefully, Reid said: "You play how you practice...If you tell ethnic jokes in the backroom, it's that much easier to say ethnic things publicly. I've always practiced how I play."Contrast Reid's quickee apologies with the apology tour that Trent Lott undertook when he made a casual remark praising Strom Thurmond on the occasion of his 100th birthday. Lott apologized over and over and over and yet the perpetually offended grievance mongers in the Democrat Party refused to accept his apology. You would have thought Lott wanted to bring back the Jim Crow era of segregation which he clearly did not.
Lott was eventually driven from office by Senate Republicans with a big push from the White House. White House spokesman Ari Fleischer called Lott's remarks "offensive and repugnant." President Bush called Lott's comments "offensive" and "wrong."

Harry the magic gringo.
The writer makes a big mistake:
He states Demorats like to let the scandal sit in the living room and stink!
The writer overlooks that like Garbage Men, that Smell is Perfume in the Nostrils of Demorats!! They laugh at the Republicans for pursuing this disgusting notion called Morals and Ethics!
Birds of a feather. They all think alike.
And by the way, there is nothing ‘light skinned’ about Obamao.
Oh that's goood.
Funny how the commie ‘RATS close ranks and march in lock step every time one of their ilk puts on their hood and robe.
I'd go just a bit slightly furthur here. This applies to EVERYTHING they do, pun intended.
I refer to the mentality of the Bumpus's dogs in Christmas story. They would have no problem taking stinky dumps on the middle of the Parker's living room, and then running away thru the screen door. The Parker's get left holding the bag and having to clean up the mess, holding their noses all the while.
It seems that every big program that the 'rats pass goes eventually bankrupt and epitomizes failure. From the post office, to SS, Medicare, war on poverty, war on healthcare, war on private property, war on the constitution, ad infitem.
I think it should be tied to the Clinton comment about Obama getting him coffee and the Biden comment about Obama being a black man who speaks well.
We aren’t going to drive Reid out nor do we really want to because of the coming election. Better to tie things together to create a common thread and remind people of it again and again.
The media can make a mountain out of a molehill (Lott, George Allen, etc) or a molehill out of a mountain (Reid, Clinton/Lewinsky). They can create pressure or not. Here they are choosing "not".
Lives in DeeCee
Its only a diversion from the stupid crap they’ve been doing and are about to do.
It is a dimocrapit organization after all.
i smell a rush magic negro song intro to tomoorrws show
Reid explained this morning that he would have apologized to Rev. Jesse Jackson, except I cant understand his dialect.
...and the smell will last for years.
Now 0bama has no problem with suggestions that only a light-skinned black who doesn't speak in ebonics is acceptable to Americans. 0bama doesn't seem to relate very well to American blacks.

He promises a world of hope
Yet craps on you and me!
Harry the magic gringo
Is a liar and a clown
Let’s run this bastard out of town
Cause he’ll tear this nation down.
I'd Rather it wasn't true but the Truth is Blairing, if you trust the state controlled American media (SCAM) to report the news you're going to get Cooked.
That's not necessarily good news for the GOP, since he was damaged and beatable. Same with Dodd.
It would have been nice if this were an October Suprise...
Right on right on right on!
I hope Black Americans of the Democrat persuasion realize that the Democrat party leaders all hold these disturbing thoughts.
If you have not figured it out by now, the double standard of sexism and racism is the radical stragety plan of “hanging your opponent with his own standards and morals.” Democrats game Republicans with the race and sex witch hunts they run. Republicans fall for it every time and axe the Dem’s target, ie Trent Lott. Disgusting.
Well of courseracists always stick together! I hear they even have a club called the KKK, Sen Byrd used to be a leader in his younger days!
They’ll make excuses for them as long as the “redistribution” (something for nothing) keeps happening.
