Reid sticks his foot in his mouth

Why is it that politicians don’t think before they open their mouths? What is actually worse it the latent racism that exists even in those who claim that they are not racist.

 

The latest victim of this is Harry Reid, Senate Majority Leader.

 

In a recently released book, “Game Change”, by Journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, Reid said privately that Obama, as a black candidate, could be successful thanks, in part, to his “light-skinned” appearance and speaking patterns “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.”

 

Reid, who is facing a tough re-election bid, immediately apologized to President Obama, who accepted the apology without question.

 

In his apology statement Reid also said

“I sincerely apologize for offending any and all Americans, especially African Americans for my improper comments.”

 

“I was a proud and enthusiastic supporter of Barack Obama during the campaign and have worked as hard as I can to advance President Obama’s legislative agenda”.

 

It is difficult to pull your foot out of your mouth once you make this kind of statement.
