harry reid 200 Should Harry Reid resign over racist comments?The GOP is calling for democratic Senator Harry Reid’s head over some racist comments he made regarding President Obama during the 2008 presidential election. In private conversations, Reid remarked that the U.S. was ready to elect a Black president, especially one who was “light-skinned” and “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.”

President Obama has said that the book is closed on this matter but the
“Today” White House correspondent Chuck Todd calls it “pragmatism,
political pragmatism.” The Republicans are looking to oust Senator Reid
so that they have a better shot at his seat in Nevada, while the
Democrats want to his place as the Senate Majority Leader.

This sounds like quite the witch hunt to us. If every Congress member had to resign for every off-color comment they’ve made in private, we’d have no Congress left. Like there aren’t any Republicans who’ve made racially-insensitive comments about the current president? Please. We aren’t endorsing the comments but maybe the GOP shouldn’t be so quick to throw stones. What do you think? Should Senator Reid resign over the comments he made in 2008? Vote below.
