Sen. Reid Questions if GOP Wants Obama to Fail Because Hes Black
Newsmax ^ | Friday, 09 Aug 2013 04:28 PM | Paul Scicchitano and Newsmax Wires

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. …

Reid’s comments went unchallenged by the program’s 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 Reid’s 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.

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.

RE Sen. Reid Questions if GOP Wants Obama to Fail Because He’s Black

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.

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?

Of course, those who take anything on faith are low-information morons.

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.

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.”

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.

Reid needs someone to blame for Obama's and the liberal progressive agenda being a complete disaster.

Might as well blame it on the GOP for being racists?

Obama and Holder and Arnie Donovan carry out black racist policies such as forcing urban blacks into crime free majority white suburbs via HUD housing policies. Yes I want these black racists to fail. Eric Holder has carried out other black racist policies via his Justice Department. Obama carries out pro-Muslim policies and surrenders to Putin via unilateral nuclear disarmament. Yes I want him to fail.

Obama’s NSA spying on all Americans. I want that to fail.

Oh, pulezzz. The GOP doesn’t want obama to fail. He’s failed already and not because he is black, but because he /somebody “overreached” when he was placed in that position.

It’s the second time the President of the United States has interjected himself into a confrontation between those in authority on legal grounds reasonably questioned and released someone involved in a curious activity in a patrolled area. Could this attitude be based from the idealized communist concept that there is no such thing as “private” property because the state (collective) owns the land ? .

In both cases those representing “authority” were reported as “white” . In the second case the person working security on private property. He was attacked while on foot discontinuing a observation and was returing to his vehicle after being so instructed by the police to do so.Thus allowing the person he was legally observing to continue on their way unchallanged and unimpeded. But instead who then doubled back and attacked the “neighborhood watch” worker as he was returing to his vehicle beating him severly to the ground. In which the attacker was subsequently killed in a struggle over the Neighborhood Watchman’s legal pistol.

But that really doesn’t explain reverting to this excessive use of governmental powers and influence taking a person of mixed races doing his job and placing his life and family in serious harms way plus encouraging racial discord which has resulted into racial attacks leading to deaths and serious injuries by black youths on whites and “hispanics” .

Now why would they (Demo-Coms) do this ? First it was an outright racist charge , now it’s “standing ground”. Neither which actually applied here.

They don’t want a thorough investigation of any of these issues, Begahzi, IRS, etc etc and Travelgate II where a direct link to the White House can be made offering traveling rewards at US taxpayers expence for campaign help. It has been effective. Both the House and the Senate has gotten the message for if they find malfeasance and start condeming these activities of this president and they get too close racial strife will result.

If conservatives wanted obama to fail it would be because they cared about the future well being of their country.

Yeah, old Harry talking about Zero back before we knew him like we do know, saying he didn’t “have any Negro speaking pattern” unless he wanted to speak that way.
Dingy Harry, like most Democrats, is once again projecting. It’s that whole war between the States thing—you remember: back when Democrats owned Negroes.

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.”

Well this all goes back to the statement Rush made on the air just after Obama won election.

But the truth is that Republicans and Conservatives want Obama to fail because his policies are harmful to America and the world.

The reality however is that Obama is failing because he is “African-American”.

It is not the color of his skin that makes him Black however but his ideology. Obama’s ideology is Black. He has adopted and internalized the racist/socialist ideology of the Black militant political organization with which his mother was associated.

This ideology is destined to fail because it divides the country in to racial mini-states that Balkanize the country and socialist economic policy can not succeed because it is contrary to human nature.
