    Senator Reid is a good man with solid character and principle. Thanks President Obama for standing by Senator Reid and helping to fend off GOP lying and vicious attacks.

    Isn't that nice! I wonder if Obama will choose to use any of that "Negro Dialect" when he's out in Nevada campaigning for Sen Reid.

    Its the best news for Reid's opponent. Obama thinks he can again pull the wool over people's eyes with his smooth talk. NOT ANYMORE! Talk without action consistent with the talk is LYING if not b–lsht.
    Obama is a lameduck statesman. Can't wait for 2010 elections to sour Obama's rhetoric!

    Harry Reid is the MAN! He is standing for what is right and good for the middle-class, such as healthcare and jobs.

    Jerks like RNC Chairman Michael "The Bozo" Steele is purposely twisting Reid's attempts at complimenting candidate-Obama into racist words. Shame on you Bozo!

    This is what bugs me about the Democrats- they will support even the most failing leaders, whether it was Corzine in NJ or Harry Reid.

    Racism and Racist Remarks is a Sledgehammer only Democrats can use to distroy Republicans or opposition public and personal lives. The Golden Rule among Democrats is "never use the Sledgehammer to distroy a fellow Democrat". Only Republicans are forced to lose their elected position or retire from leadership when accused of Racism or Racist Remarks. Note the timid reponse of CNN to hold Reid accountable.

    I'm Black and I like Reid more than before now. He tries to do the right thing, he just has an old way to talk about race. The guy not racist. GO REID!
