Skip to comments.Sen. Reid Questions if GOP Wants Obama to Fail Because He’s Black
Posted on 08/10/2013 12:27:10 AM PDT by Olog-hai
Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says he hopes Republicans who oppose the president do so based on substance and not the fact that he's an African-American.
The comment came during a wide-ranging interview Friday with Las Vegas-based National Public Radio affiliate KNPR, in which Reid lamented Republican filibusters and claimed opponents do everything they can to make Obama fail.
Reids comments went unchallenged by the programs moderator, but not by Newsmax contributor and Conservative African-American columnist Clarence V. McKee, who said there was no reason for Reid to bring up the race issue during the interview.
He said Reids comments were tantamount to liberal, elitist, racism.

If we use the Zimmerman standard...then we need to refer to him as African-American-White. Course, this would confuse everyone, and then they suddenly wake up to realize that he is half-black, half-white, and half-Indonesian.
That’s three halves.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s because he’s black. Asians drive too slow and hillbillies like purty mouths. Now that we’ve got that settled can we talk issues?
Harry Ried hasn’t been listening to the national conversation for the past six years or this dummass question could not exit his pie-hole.
Yes, if Obama was white we would support EVERYTHING he has proposed.
Lets hope not the GOP would have done all the same as Obama under Romney.
Look, this crap line above works with many nonwhites to get out the DEM vote.
Reid is a perfect example why the GOP cant afford to pick nutbags as GOP nominees. There is no good reason why Reid is still there to annoy us with this crap.
Sharon Angle simply handed it to Reid.
Yep, kinda like man-bear-pig from SouthPark.
Could it be because he is a Marxist progressive socialist that we just disagree with based on the damage he is doing to America and the defiance he exhibits against our laws and our Constitution? Could it be something that Racist Reid just cannot understand?
Three halves in one Won. It's a mystery. You just accept it on faith if you're a typical Gen-Xer.
Of course, those who take anything on faith are low-information morons.
Kinda like 2 + 2 = 5.
This is the left’s standard tactic. It creates a distraction so they won’t have to explain their policies.
I’m all for not giving this tactic a whole lot of attention tho Conservatives are capable of focusing on a multitude of issues.
Harry Reid is a Temple Mormon, meaning that he is among the most devout, religious, tested and vetted Mormons, he is actually issued an ID so that he can enter those Temples that are forbidden to ordinary Mormons.
In 1960 when others were asserting courage to break down racial barriers, Reid was joining the Mormons.
Might as well blame it on the GOP for being racists?
We only want the white commie half to fail Harry
I want him to fail because of his color as I do with all reds.
Haha, Harry Reid the “Republican” . . .
Funny, I thought he was a mulatto faggot of dubious extraction.
His ancestors weren't slaves, they were slavers.
