According to Josh Feldman at Mediaite.com, during an appearance on radio station KNPR, senate majority leader Harry Reid brought up Mitch McConnell‘s one-term-for-Obama pledge, and said of Republicans opposing practically everything Obama does, “I hope that it’s based on substance, not the fact that he’s an African–American.”
I am sincerely disappointed by continued attempts to divide the American people by playing to the lowest common denominator. Instead of engaging in serious debate about the failed policies of this administration – from the ever-increasing burdens created by the national health care reform plan to the tax and spend approach to economic recovery, along with countless others – Democrats are once again trying to hide behind a smokescreen.
Our country deserves more from those in Washington. I hope Senator Reid will realize the offensive nature of his remarks and apologize to those who disagree with the President’s policies because of one thing – they are hurting hardworking American families.
