OK, maybe that wasn't his exact wording, but he clearly looks at Hispanics as a special interest group whom he and his party can scare, bribe or entice to keep them in power by calling Republicans RAAAAACIST.
William Jacobson at Legal Insurrection reminds us that Reid's played this game before, claiming Obamacare opponents were like those who didn't want to end slavery.
Weasel Zippers notes that it's even worse, as Reid also implied that Republicans want to treat them differently because “their skin’s a tone darker” than European immigrants.
Now, if you ask me, "Dingy" Harry is the real racist, because he's the one obsessed with skin color and "Negro dialect."
Marco Rubio, the Senate candidate from Florida, took on Reid:
And Reid the Dumbass is actually defending his racist comment!
Personally, I don't know how anyone can be an American yet vote for Democrats like Reid, Obama, Pelosi, et al, ad nauseum.
