Harry Reid, no doubt sensing the fact that this will be used in a campaign ad against him later this year, decided to try and pre-empt that by apologizing to President Obama and African Americans for racist remarks he made in 2008:

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.”

This came on the same day the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that Reid has hit a new low in the polls and that his re-election bid is in severe jeopardy, so his apology just oozes sincerity, doesn’t it?

Don’t forget that this is the man who went on the Senate floor and likened opponents of Obamacare to those who were pro-slavery in the mid 19th century. If Reid and the Dems want a clue as to the truth on that one, all they need to do is look in the mirror.

Below is the pasty-skinned Harry “howza ’bouts a shine, boy?” Reid calling Republicans racists — if you can understand him though his thick vermin dialect. Hopefully this weasel is in the unemployment line in eleven months:

    Obama might be “Magic” or Poly- Americanus,but Harry is 100% Mormon…not that there’s anything wrong with that…or is there? Do buzzards eat crow?

    Isn't it amazing that Democrats are supposed to be the party that lifts minorities out of poverty yet for the last 40 years all the Democrats have done is dug deeper holes for those trying to escape poverty. And then they make these outrageous statements, apologize and get a huge pass from the minorities and media.

    Yeah, a huge pension and probably a 7-figure lobbying job.

    Some enterprising reporter, if there are any left, should put the final dagger through Harry's Senate career and ask him "What exactly is a 'negro dialect' anyway?"

    Al Gore gave it try – maybe he could "educate" Harry.

    All of them will eat crow at some point, as do most people.

    What is far more disturbing than Reid's comment itself, is that elected officials, paid with taxpayer dollars, would spend valuable time criticizing Reid, or any other politician who just happened to say something offensive, inappropriate, or stupid, instead of tending to the important business of the nation. And this applies to members of ALL political parties.

    And why do they do it? To advance the long-term positive and material interests of the nation? No. Pure and simple grandstanding for their political purposes. They ALL should arguably be voted out at the next available opportunity. As for we citizens, we should never underestimate the power of laughter, and ignoring people.

    [...] Will some enterprising reporter please ask Reid if he was wildly exaggerating the problem in the first place, or just doesn’t care that people are dying due to problems in our health care system because ramming through the wildly unpopular Obamacare bill could cost him re-election? It’s one or the other. Frankly, either option makes him look like a jerk, but Reid is used to that. [...]
