During a campaign event in Las Vegas on Tuesday, Senate Majority leader Larry Reid said, “I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a republican, okay? Do I need to say more?” Really?!
The National Republican Senatorial Committee issued the following response to Reid’s ridiculousness, “It’s no secret that Harry Reid is a desperate politician who is under fire for his reckless spending and failed economic record, but these outrageous statements represent race baiting at its very worst.” As of lately, Reid has been blasting the Republicans for their attempts at immigration reform (hey, maybe he likes paying the $113 billion that illegal immigrants cost us each year) and is in a close race with Nevada Republican senate nominee, Sharron Angle, who supports Arizona’s immigration law.
Additionally, Mario Lopez, president of the Hispanic Leadership Fund rightly agrees that it’s none of Harry Reid’s business to assume people’s party preferences. He tells the Daily Caller, “It’s the height of arrogance for Harry Reid to anoint himself as some sort of authority on what it means to be Hispanic,” Lopez said.
Personally, I don’t know how anyone could support such absurd economic spending policies or make such scowling faces.
