Senator Harry Reid Apologizes for Calling Obama a Light Skinned Appearance with no Negro Dialect


WOW … How come Barack Hussein Obama didn’t hold a press conference and say that Harry Reid acted stupidly?

So who said the following? BTW, what party is the party of RACISM? Can you imagine the hue and cry and calls for resignation if it were a Republican? Will Dems find a way to blame Bush for this also?


Harry Reid … No wonder he is pushing Obamacare so hard

Obama – a “light-skinned” African American “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one”

If you said Conservative talk show radio host Rush Limbaugh, former MS Senator Trent Lott or any other Republican, you would be wrong. If you even said WV Senator and former Klan member Robert Byrd, you would be incorrect. Answer,  Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Democrats are so quick to use the race card, they might want to first police their own. Imagine, just imagine if such a comment were made by Sarah Palin, Dick Cheney or any one with an “R”? Of course a Democrat can say it and have their apology accepted with no loss of employment.  Reid apologizes for is ignorant statement.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid apologized Saturday following reports he had privately described then-candidate Barack Obama during the presidential campaign as a black candidate who could be successful thanks in part to his “light-skinned” appearance and speaking patterns “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.”

“He (Reid) was wowed by Obama’s oratorical gifts and believed that the country was 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,’ as he said privately. Reid was convinced, in fact, that Obama’s race would help him more than hurt him in a bid for the Democratic nomination,” they write.

“I deeply regret using such a poor choice of words,” Reid said in a statement to CNN.

Think the White House and MSM would have accepted the apology if Rush had made such a comment? Funny how the Democrat party and liberal MSM has a different reaction when such a racist statement comes from one of their own, eh?

Reid’s apology from Big As stated at BG, “Poor choice of words? Exactly what other combination of words could Sen. Reid have used to convey his point? And what, exactly, was his point anyway?”

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) apologized today for referring to President Barack Obama as “light skinned” and “with no Negro dialect” in private conversations during the 2008 presidential campaign.

“I deeply regret using such a poor choice of words,” said Reid in a statement. “I sincerely apologize for offending any and all Americans, especially African Americans for my improper comments.

As stated by Michelle Malkin, it was just last month that Nevada Senator and Democrat Majority leader who likened Republicans who oppose the government health care to proponents of slavery. One has to wonder just how long Dingy Harry really has in office and whether he will actually run in 2010 for reelection. I am sensing another Democrat retirement. Just a hunch.

UPDATE I: Look what then Senator Obama Said About Trent Lott in 2002 when it came to racist remark!

From the December 12, 2002 issue of the Chicago Defender via The Weekly Standard. Isn’t it interesting the double standard that President Barack Obama displays as the supposed leader of all Americans! Nice consitance Barry O.

Illinois Senator Barack Obama (D-13th), who hosted WVON’s Cliff Kelley Show, challenged the Republican Party to repudiate Lott’s remarks and to call for his resignation as senate leader.

“It seems to be that we can forgive a 100-year-old senator for some of the indiscretion of his youth, but, what is more difficult to forgive is the current president of the U.S. Senate (Lott) suggesting we had been better off if we had followed a segregationist path in this country after all of the battles and fights for civil rights and all the work that we still have to do,” said Obama.

He said: “The Republican Party itself has to drive out Trent Lott. If they have to stand for something, they have to stand up and say this is not the person we want representing our party.”

      Can you imagine Jesse Jerkoff and Al if this came from a republican>

      In other words, Sen Reid just apologized for his being truthful. How droll.

    3. rightknight on January 10th, 2010 10:29 am

      Reid managed not to mention his ‘white half’.

    4. rightknight on January 10th, 2010 10:41 am

      Harry is so vapid, he does not recognize that when
      ‘Government’ controls citizens so completely, the
      citizens are in fact Slaves! Reid seeks to control
      the People.

      Where did this guy come from, and why does he get a pass on everything?

      I watched in horror when one of my employees greeted a black man with the expression, “hey, my nig.” She actually pulled in off with no hurt feelings, and she is as white as I am. I would have been killed on the spot.

      Harry Reid is just such an idiot; he might get away with these things because they think his brain is running on vapors from a previous life as an earthworm.

      Reid be cold trippin’!

      It was nice of Obama to tell Harry…. no worries, man… We is scraight!

      Where are the liberal pukes now? Read History. Conservatives have done more than african americans no matter how much liberals claim.

      There is absolutely a double standard when it comes to liberal a$$ wipes and race. It’s laughable.

      Where’s the punk yoyo who is plays the tiresome race card? Your boy Harry step on his d**k this time! You should take a hard look in the mirror and actually read and you’ll see you are actually the racist and the party and movement you belong too, have done more to harm african americans than help them.

      would not accept an apology from trent lott but since the democrats are in this crime grab together, they got each other’s back ? don’t believe a word of the apologies. harry is being crucified behind his back by the black caucus and black politicians.
      now they are going to try reverse racism to try to pin this on the other party. not a very smart move since racism what the democrats thrive on.

    15. yoyo muffintop on January 11th, 2010 3:01 pm

      #12 – Excuse me? Would you like for me to bust out your own post #12 where you called mexicans “beaners”? Why don’t you find 1 post where I’ve written anything remotely racist. Good luck.
      After you attempt that go let that kid out you’ve got locked in your basement short eyes.

    16. super dave on January 12th, 2010 8:31 am

      yoyo: you call people racists here ten times a day. i call that racism dumbass. i can see you and jethro bodine made it all the way to the sixth grade.
      you are the biggest racist i have ever encountered. you show blatant hate for white people. raicst biotch.

    17. Scott on January 12th, 2010 8:59 am

      Me UNLIKE you have a life and don’t keep track of every word that everyone on here posts…what a total loser…talk about sitting in your basement…lol

      Ah, everybody knows your racist including Red. You don’t have to call people names to be racist. It’s in your tone and it’s the ONLY card you have left. Your party and your liberal ways are coming to an end in 2010. Get used to it.

      I’m not racist, I’m a realist.

      Maybe I did call them “beaners.” I have Mexican friends dipsh*t and they call them themselves that on occassion. Kind of like when black people call each other ******!

      We know the only reason you like Obama is because he is going to take care of LEECHES of SOCIETY like yourself! You know, you an illegal, you get free health care at my expense, you get more in your headstart/welfare check….I mean lets call a spade a spade (an no that’s not a racist comment). We can see right through your sorry a$$!

    18. yoyo muffintop on January 13th, 2010 12:52 am

      So let me get this straight…your defense of calling mexicans “beaners” is because “they call them themselves that on occassion. Kind of like when black people call each other ******!”

      What word are you typing when you wrote “******”? The n-word perhaps? Why didn’t you type the n-word #17? You said it’s ok you use a racist term, such as “beaner” and the n-word, because “they” call each other those names on occasion. So why didn’t you use the n-word?

      You are a moron of epic proportions. Lol! Classic!

    19. Dolf on January 13th, 2010 11:22 am

      Scott is realistic.

      although not in this reality, he is in some parallel universe

    20. Dolf on January 13th, 2010 5:10 pm

      @18: don’t call Scott classic…it involves the word class, something Scott shows to have an absolute lack off.
