Harry Reid, the Democrat Senator from Nevada who is the Majority Leader of the US Senate said this about Congressional Republicans opposition to President Obama in an interview yesterday:
“It’s been obvious
that they’re doing everything they can to make him fail. And I hope, I
hope — and I say this seriously — I hope that’s based on substance and
not the fact that he’s African-American.”
are the ones who appointed the first two African-Americans to serve as
Secretary of State (Colon Powell and Condoleezza Rice), elected the
first African-American to the US Senate (Tim Scott), and appointed an
African-American as US Ambassador to the UN (Alan Keyes) and the US
Supreme Court (Clarence Thomas), to name a few African-Americans who
have served their country as Republicans.
So I say to Harry –
and I say this seriously – I hope your idiotic statement is based upon
your being severely addled when you said that and not the fact that you are a
complete and utter idiot.
