And "articulate"...Posted by Pappy at January 9, 2010 7:20 PM
That should've been "And did I mention articulate"...Posted by Pappy at January 9, 2010 7:24 PM
It's a sad commentary that Reid felt that he had to apologize and that Obama accepted it (rather than saying "Hey! Harry! Not to worry; no need to apologize as what you said was basically true.")Posted by David Sucher at January 9, 2010 9:48 PM
What is far more disturbing than Reid's comment itself, is that elected officials, paid with taxpayer dollars, would spend valuable time criticizing Reid, or any other politician who just happened to say something offensive, inappropriate, or stupid, instead of tending to the important business of the nation. And this applies to members of ALL political parties.
And why do they do it? To advance the long-term positive and material interests of the nation? No. Pure and simple grandstanding for their political purposes. They ALL should arguably be voted out at the next available opportunity. As for we citizens, we should never underestimate the power of laughter, and ignoring people.Posted by Reggie Greene / The Logistician at January 10, 2010 2:55 PM
