Harry Reid is America’s Black Eye

Harry Reid seems to be feeling the pressure of losing control of his Party in the Senate, but his injury story is just about as credible as just about anything else he’s said.

First, we were told he was on an exercise machine, which turned out to be a lie.  Then Dick Durbin said a rubber band broke, hit Reid in the eye, gave him a concussion and sent him into some built-in cabinets, which was plausible, except that it had come from Dick Durbin.

The House Does Not Need To Capitulate With Boehner Plan

I’m unsure where head is, but there is a fundamental flaw in his logic about this Boehner Plan.

I don’t understand this holding the line on CC&B stuff. I’d love to if there were something to hold onto. Speaker Boehner did his job on CC&B. He more than held the line, he got it passed. So, what? Is he supposed to get it passed, again? Yeah, that makes sense.

No, he’s not supposed to get it passed again. He is supposed to, as any good leader would, proclaim he did his job, (which he did) and hammer the Senate to stop all the games and vote on it. He is supposed to highlight the Reid game for the American people to see. He is supposed to find a microphone and become a broken record, “The Senate refuses to vote on Cut, Cap and Balance, even though is passed with bipartisan support in the House, and there are indications that it can just as well in the Senate.”

Reid says “It’s over, it’s done, it’s dead.” Like hell! Resurrect it.

The pressure needs to mount to make the Democrats do something.

Another thing Riehl says, is that the House may be forced to accept the Reid deal.

Forced to accept? Doesn’t that mean that Republicans would actually vote for it? That’s a problem, don’t you think?

No, being strong on a good plan is better than fighting for a crappy deal.

Harry Reid Is A Bigot

Harry Reid was quoted in a political book as saying privately that the US would be “ready to embrace a black presidential candidate, especially one such as Obama – a ‘light-skinned’ African American ‘with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.’ ”

I listened to talk radio intellects Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin duly hammer Reid and Democrats in general for the double standard they openly displayed in dismissing the quote to try to quickly get past the embarrassment.

Rush played endless clips of Democrats being racially insensitive, and pointed out that the comment shows that Reid thought that the country would not support a very black man with a negro dialect.

Levin attacked the quote as well, and showed how Obama, the President of the NAACP and Al Sharpton chose to deal with the quote.  Obama called the quote “unfortunate.” The NAACP President said the quote was “not offensive,” just “awkward.” Sharpton said he was offended, but attacked Senator Trent Lott for a quote given 8 years ago.

They all focused on the word ‘negro.’

At the heart of all the back-tracking, strange equivalence, and mental gymnastics surrounding the quote however, is a more serious matter.

The quality of each human life and its individuality.

Harry Reid looked at a man and thought he was a more worthy individual than another based on the tone of his skin and his ability to fake a speech pattern.  It shows  his point of view as bigoted.

It is the trademark of the Democrat Party in fact, to gather people into groups in order to figure out how to promise them something they will find appealing and then purchase their vote.  In Reid’s mind, Obama seemed to check all the correct boxes of Democrat voters.

A caller to Levin’s radio show, an individual named Jewel from Chantilly, VA, said that as an African-American, he thought the comment showed Reid to resemble slave owners of the past who allowed only the light-skinned blacks to serve at the house, and kept the dark-skinned blacks in the field.

Jewel’s comment struck me as the explicit truth.

Reid’s shallow apology, that he could have used different words, rings quite hollow.  Why bother?   My guess is that we would still have understood any other words he chose to use, and he would still be proved a bigot.
