Harry Reid Puts The GOP In A Difficult Position

2 comments January 10th, 2010at 02:39pm Posted by Eli

On the one hand, his newly revealed comments about Obama being able to speak “with no Negro dialect” give them a golden opportunity to score points with their cherished “Democrats are the real racists!” narrative.

On the other hand, Reid is such an ineffectual craven boob of a Majority Leader that if he actually did step down, they might find it a lot harder to run rings around his replacement and force him to make horrible compromises with “moderate” Republicans or conservative Democrats.

Harry Reid as Majority Leader is a bigger asset to the Republicans than Joe Lieberman or Ben Nelson, and here they are calling for his head.

As for me, I have no interest at all in making excuses for Reid; this is just the latest and most appalling entry in an already long list of reasons why I desperately want to see him gone.  And since I doubt that he’ll be man enough to do the right thing and resign from either the Senate or his Majority Leader position, I can only hope that this is enough to completely destroy his re-election chances this year.

    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.

    I’d say this is one of the least appalling gaffs of Reid’s. He’s the only solo winner of the Roll Over And Beg Award, and he’s been the main inspiration for at least two others.

    Gotta agree with Reggie Greene, the best antidote to this is ridicule.
