Democrat Sen. Harry Reid Apologizing for saying Barack Obama has "No Negro Dialect" Unless He Wants One - Video 1/9/10

Via Freedom's Lighthouse commenter "Nelsa"



Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is apologizing for a shocking comment he reportedly made about Barack Obama which is revealed in a new book:

The top Democrat in the U.S. Senate apologized on Saturday for comments he made about Barack Obama's race during the 2008 presidential bid and are quoted in a yet-to-be-released book about the campaign.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada described in private then-Sen. Barack Obama as "light skinned" and "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one." Obama is the nation's first African-American president.

"I deeply regret using such a poor choice of words. I sincerely apologize for offending any and all Americans, especially African-Americans for my improper comments," Reid said in a statement released after the excerpts were first reported on the Web site of The Atlantic.

"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." . . . .MORE
It is hard to see how "The War is Lost" Harry Reid's "no Negro dialect" comment will do anything but make his re-election in Nevada more difficult. He is already facing an uphill climb to re-election.
