    Yes.

    Harry's comment does not fall into that category. It was clearly racist, clearly bigoted, and clearly demonstrates the true feelings of the liberal elitist Democrat.

    If they didn't hate black people and look down on them, how could they presume to run their lives for them?

    They themselves used this "standard" to stop Rush Limbaugh from buying a share in a football team, just last month or so.

    So their lack of standars is evident. If it's a white talk show host promoting positive American values, they're allowed to take everything out of context, smear him, and deny him his free exercise of his rights, but if a Democrat makes a clearly racist remark, understood to be so in it's proper context, well, that's just fine, he's "apologized" and everything is right with the universe again.
    Just making a point Scarecrow. Yeah Rush was blackballed by the libs.

    Speaking of Limbaugh...he made a great point today...

    Why is everyone up in arms over Reid but not for Pres Clinton's remark to Sen Kennedy saying "a few years ago this guy (Obama) would be serving us coffee".

    I'd demand his resignation, but liberals/Dems dont hold their people to the same standard that they hold Republicans, so it would never happen, and said demand would be a waste of time.

    Because Reid's comment was a derogatory that it suggests that a black man that doesn't meet his description is a rarity.

    Comment about serving coffee is actually true though he should have said decades and not years.

    I for one agree. I do not feel he said anything wrong. And yes some black people speak very differently then your typical white person. I felt he was saying that america (probably talking more about the white population) could be ready to elect a black man that presents himself as an educated black man. I feel he was correct. I do not believe we would have (white population) elected a "geto" sounding black man. They simply would have been to alienated from what the white population veiw themselves as.

    That's a ridiculous assumption - White people voted for Obama knowing that he is a Muslim - a Black Muslim at that - according to your assumption, if he had spoken like a "geto" Black he would have had more of a chance - they still voted for him, even after 9/11, so color and religion had no play in the game - White people vote for who they think would be OK in the job.

    What the twirp Reid said was racist - he will be removed come November.

    Obama is not a Muslim.
