Harry Reid

t appears Harry Reid has apologized for his ‘no negro dialect’ comment aimed at Pres. Obama during the 2008 campaign.  He apologized in 2010 due to the release of a book detailing the campaign.  He felt so sorry for what he said he waited over a year to call Obama and say he was sorry.  Now, this is the same guy who said Trent Lott made the right decision in resigning in 2002 over racist comments he made.  So, should we expect a resignation announcement Monday from Reid?  Don’t hold your breath.  You have to have character to do that.  Then Illinois State Senator Obama called on the the Republican party to do the right thing and remove Lott.  Will Obama call on his party to remove Reid?  Of course not.  Obama says he accepts the apology.  I have no problem with an apology and making things right.  I am glad Reid apologized and Obama accepted.  My problem is calls for Lott’s head and the silence now.  Very hypocritical if you ask me.
