    As stated by many of the Senators supporting him, Reid has a record of trying to help minorities and the poor. He made a stupid comment that does not erase all the good he has done. I must ask, do you think his comments = Lotts comments

    Do you yourself disagree with what Reid said?

    Lott's comments are only relevant in the context of the left's reaction to someone saying something dumb, when they don't happen to carry that (D) by their name, versus the reaction when it's one of their own stepping on his dick.

    Moreover, Lott's comments were a shameless butt kiss at at private birthday party for a 100-year old man, while Reid's gaffe was out in front of God and everyone.

    He DID NOT make a stupid comment, he stated a political reality of race issues in the US of A.


    Lott was and likely still is a "segregationist," just that the law has put him in a place where he cannot openly enforce those beliefs.

    What I agree with or disagree with is irrelevant to the discussion. The left went nuts over Lott making a comment to make a 100 year old guy feel good. And now they want to excuse blatant racism cause the guy votes with them.

    For the record, I do not care one bit what color my President is or what color they are when they run for President. I do CARE about them being competent enough to do the job.

    All I know is that a black guy said what Reid Said was, "awkward."

    Can anyone please quote WTF he said?

    Reid was commenting on the electability of a dark skinned black with a strong ethnic dialect. Do you agree that the US would have difficulty electing such a candidate?

    No such person ran so it is a pointless comparison and worthless to speculate on. If a Republican had said what Reid said about Obama you guys would all be howling for their head on a platter.

    Did he say "Blue-Gum" or "dark skinned black?"
