With all due respect to Star Parker

    RedState contributor “Beaglescout” quoted Star Parker in one of his comments as saying: “Republicans need to wake up [and see] that the conservative message that supposedly defines their party is a message that blacks badly need. But they aren’t going to sell it to them as long as blacks do not feel comfortable pulling the lever for Republicans. Republicans leaders should be using air time | Read More »

    Remembering: Harry’s History

    Gives me warm and fuzzies Of course, the title of this post can be taken two ways, and right now I’m looking at both of them. I never got over Reid with his comment “…the war is lost…” back in 2007; “Now I believe, myself, that the secretary of state, the secretary of defense and you have to make your own decision as to what | Read More »

    Doug Wilder: Reid’s Apology Not Sufficient

    It seems that the further you get from the elites in Washington DC, who have a stake in Harry Reid remaining in power, the more likely you are to find African Americans who have a problem with Harry Reid’s comments about Barack Obama. And while I don’t agree with Doug Wilder on much, he makes a point that Reid and his defenders have attempted to | Read More »

    I still believe Harry Reid will retire

    I firmly believe Harry Reid will not seek re-election, but will retire. This makes me more convinced. New Rasmussen Reports numbers out today show the Democrat’s support has plunged 7 points since last month, a time frame involving his demeaning remarks on his president’s skin color and manner of speaking. That puts Reid right at 36% approval now, less than 10 months before Nov. 2 | Read More »

    Harry Reid and Barack Obama are not friends. They never were.

    Don’t forget this, while savoring the moment of Reid’s discomfort. It’s a side bar. Barack Obama, and his kind, have grown up knowing how white liberals think of them. It was the same in Colonial Africa, where his father grew up. In the Civil Rights south, in the 60’s, they were called “white gods and goddesses”, and even in Dr King’s day, black kids were | Read More »

    Harry Reid Among The Race Hypocrites

    By now most of you have seen Harry Reid’s reported remarks, from a book on the 2008 election, enthusing that Barack Obama could be a successful presidential candidate because he was “light-skinned” and “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.” The real story here is the Left’s hypocrisy: Reid has committed a sin that would be unpardonable by anyone but a Democratic | Read More »

    You Can’t Say That!

    BODY,.aolmailheader {font-size:10pt; color:black; font-family:Arial;} a.aolmailheader:link {color:blue; text-decoration:underline; font-weight:normal;} a.aolmailheader:visited {color:magenta; text-decoration:underline; font-weight:normal;} a.aolmailheader:active {color:blue; text-decoration:underline; font-weight:normal;} a.aolmailheader:hover {color:blue; text-decoration:underline; font-weight:normal;} Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has been caught in a firestorm that appears likely to undermine his political viability. His sin? He was actually caught telling the truth. Gasp. Harry’s problem stems from the fact that certain truths are no longer allowed to be uttered | Read More »

    Obama: That wacky Harry Reid.

    I’m stuck writing this on a borrowed Mac laptop running Safari, of all things – and yes, this qualifies as ‘stuck’ – so let me let haystack do the actual analysis of Harry Reid’s some-of-my-best-friends-have-Negro-voices attitudes.  I just want to note this: the President’s immediate acceptance of Reid’s sorry-for-offending ‘apology’ just goes to show.  The President is very magnanimous and forgiving about personal attacks made | Read More »

    Harry Reid, Political Windsock

    Regarding Prince Harry’s recent public evaluation of Prez Obambi’s skin tone, I guess one could say that it’s easy to be black and white on this issue (pun intended.) Back in ’53, George Wallace, while serving on the Alabama bench of the Third Judicial Cicuit Court, was castigated by fellow whites for refering to black attorneys who appeared before him as “Sir” and using the | Read More »

    Where are they now?

    News broke this weekend that a forthcoming book on the 2008 election will report Harry Reid making some incendiary remarks about Barack Obama. Specifically, Harry Reid said Obama has “no Negro dialect, unless he wants to have one.” Let’s take the Wayback Machine to 2002, shall we?  We’ll take a look at the Democrats’ responses to Trent Lott’s statements (and subsequent apology) about Strom Thurmond, | Read More »

    Obama Transparency, A Transparency Of Lies

    Last year during the campaign, Barack Obama was all over the map about transparency. He was going to be the number one show on CSPAN. Everything that his administration and the Congress who bowed under him was going to be broadcast on the cable channel. He stated that his would be the most transparent administration in history. Well he has kept one portion of that | Read More »

    Harry Reid

    It 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 | Read More »

    Sen. Nelson (D-NE) was for the Healthcare Bill before he was against it…

    …And he was against it before that. Some of you may remember I wrote a post a while back on my blog thanking Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska for stalling the Obamacare bill for no other reason than I wished to see the bill fail. Evidently Nelson must have seen my post or something, because soon after had I written the post, it seems, he | Read More »

    And The Beat Goes On – At Risk Dems Bail… And Bail…And…

    We’ve been talking about this for months now. They can’t say they weren’t warned. In their headlong rush for the LEMMING PRECIPICE of self-destruction, the DeMarxists were repeatedly told, “there is a price to be paid for your self-aggrandizing power grab and your arrogant disenfranchisement of the American TAXPAYER…and TAXPAYERS ARE VOTERS!” In their blind ideologue-driven hurry to enslave the freest society in the history | Read More »

    DeMint’s Bold Objection Forces Pelosi, Reid and Obama to Scurry Behind Closed Doors on Health Care Reform (Again)

    Aside from a handful of mentions, not much has been made thus far of Republican Senator Jim DeMint’s courageous objection to the appointment of conferees on the health care bill. Most people know that the House passed one version of a health care bill at 11 pm on a Saturday, while the Senate passed a very different version at 7am on Christmas Eve. Before any | Read More »
