Angry White Men
Crazy Harry Reid. Just when you think he has said his most stupid remark that cannot be equaled, he proves us wrong...again. Monday, in a speech before the Senate, the Nevada Senator stated that, "...17 angry white men is attempting to buy the presidential election for Mitt Romney." Hypocrisy knows no bounds for Democrats such as Harry Reid. How many angry white men bought the election for Barack Obama in 2008? There were many "white men" on the, now, villainous Wall St. who supported then Senator Obama. Of course, this is just another shot across the bow in the never ending class warfare battles Democrats like to invoke from time to time. Just as the fictitious "war on women," this is another straw man trotted out for consumption. Harry Reid has never been one to shy away from provocative statements. You would think this wouldn't be news any longer given Reid's history of making dumbass statements. Imagine the outcry if a Republican senator had stated that "17 angry black men" are trying to win the election for President Obama. The New York Times, Boston Globe and Washington Post, along with all the liberal electronic media, would be falling all over themselves with angry and fury. Such is the double standard that conservatives must endure.
The Democrats can't match the Republicans in campaign fundraising. So, what to do? Go to the old Democratic strategy of demonizing the opponent. Things are so bad for Democrats, they have opted to force Republicans to reveal names of their donors in an attempt to intimidate them. The Campaign Donor Disclosure bill was one such attempt. The attempt to pass the bill failed. This was a Democratic response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision in 2010 that removed limits on independent spending by corporations and labor unions. The race between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney is tight. It is much tighter than Democrats had anticipated. So, like pouting children, they are striking out in ridiculous fashion. Harry Reid's racist ramblings is just the latest attempt.
