–CNN's Dan Lothian and Paul Steinhauser contributed to this report.
Fantastic – its more than we could hope for. We are in real trouble now with Mr. O campaigning for this nutjob I mean great politician. Oh my, we might as well throw in the towel and give up – uncle – no more kind words Mr. O – we cant take it anymore. What chance do we stand against such a formidable foe? Mercy Mr. O, mercy.
But these comments that Reid made help Obama. Obama played the race card from the beginning of his campaign, his wife Michelle used it, and they probably will use it until next election. Its all played right in his hands, I can see why he will support Reid.
Wonderful – Hairy Reid and Papa Doc Barack, together, at last.
This is great news for republicans. The doofus-in-chief with the contra-Midas touch will ensure the incompetent Reid's defeat.
His comments will have nothing to do with his demise. It is his backroom dealing and outrageous taxation plans that will is his undoing.
the republicans are showing the world just how racist they really are and how jelious they are of an american black man wining against a true blue whitie republican John the dip stick McCain . keep up the good work republicans , you will soon be at the bottom of the scum pond were you belong . and you wopn't win as many sets as you think in 2012 . people are gettin smarter because of the internet and instant news and information from real news sources and not that crap from FOX racist channel . so go ahaead and cry wolf Harry Ried will get re elected because he sponsers health reform and the republicans sponcer big business and the ALL POWERFUL CEO'S so by by republicans the purist party of NO ! :)
Move on people. Harry Reid spoke the truth and we all know it. Lets stop the fake outrage. Every black person is aware of the light skin dark skin social contruct created by the white man all over the world. As black people we know when we are being slighted and Harry's statement is not. So as a black women, I refused to let the white corporate racist media and a few racist white men dictate to me when to be outraged. I am so over this black/white crap and refused to have racist white people rent any space in my head for free.
Won't do you any good Harry. Didn't help in New Jersey and after talking to friends in your home state of Nevada, you're dead in the water just like Dodd would have been in Conn.
Tell your good buddy Obama to stay home and not waste his time. It would be better spent trying to learn about our economy and how best he can help it. Maybe the idea of stopping SPENDING and REDUCING TAXES may come to him. I'll not hold my breathe though with this guy at the helm of a sinking ship.
Bye, Bye Harry!
I wonder if Harry "stinky" Reid axed Obama to campaign for him?
Hopefully they can do as good a job with Reid as they did with N.J. Corzine and VA governorships.
Fantastic news, their poll numbers should mean an automatic GOP victory, vote this loser out!
Obama's coattails are getting shorter, Harry.
Reid is a good man and he said what others will not.
He has done no wrong!
A good quality that Obama has is the ability to get along with others. I doubt he read too much into what was said. I doubt that he, (unlike others and the media), would try to blow it out of proportion.
don't forget to bring michelle and oprah with ya, the way his poll numbers are tanking ( largest drop in history ) Harry might tell you to stay home boy.
Why Obama would campaign for a guy certain to lose his job is beyond me. I mean why not campaign for the guy certain to win? Certainly there is a Democrat somewhere who is a shoe-in...campaign for them and look like a winner.
Plus people have A LOT of problems/issues with Reid that have NOTHING at all to do with the latest "gaff". You are basically telling those people...your opinions are wrong...I back this guy and you should too.
Obama...he's dead weight. Shed him gracefully.
If obama helps Reid campaign that will help the republicans, obama is a liability these days.
Of course the President should go campaign for Reid-hello-Reid has the health care bill in his lap!
Is Robert Byrd going to lend a hand too?
Why wouldn't the President campaign for Mr. Reid. They are not at odds. Only the Republican losers are at odds. Republicans your constant whining and school boy behavior is sickening but also hilarious, Your crazy spokesmen from Palin to Steele to Limbaugh. No ideas, constantly bad mouthing each other all going crazy to get on TV and spout about nothing . Nut jobs one and all.
Great. That will really tank Reid's chances for re-election. Doesn't The PropOganda Machine get it - the American people don't want the socialist "change" that Obama and the Democrats are trying to shove thru Congress.
November 2010 will be a landslide victory for the Conservative Movement. And all the liberals like Reid will be out of a job!
You cannot get any more racist and hypocritcal than a liberal democrat.
Why wouldn't Obama support Reid – he has to depend on Reid to buy his health care part of history for him hopefully before his state of the union address. However, look at how well Biden campaigning for Dodd has turned out. And if Obama charges all those union members that 40% tax on their health care plans, all those Nevada workers may change Obama's mind for him and ensure Obama stays out of Nevada and other big union states.
I do not care who campaigns for him. I will not vote for him. You have to be fron NV to understand.
He has not done one thing to help.
So now he wants help to do nothing for four more years.
Why vote fot this man?????????????????
Obama does not know when enough is enough....always in our face do your job man...be a Prez.....if you know how.....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
