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:
