The only African-American in the Senate expects a public apology from Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) for saying he hopes Republican opposition to President Obama is “based on substance and not the fact that he’s African-American.”

“I am sincerely disappointed by continued attempts to divide the American people by playing to the lowest common denominator,” Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) said. “Instead of engaging in serious debate about the failed policies of this administration – from the ever-increasing burdens created by the national health care reform plan to the tax and spend approach to economic recovery, along with countless others – Democrats are once again trying to hide behind a smokescreen.”

“Our country deserves more from those in Washington,” Scott continued. “I hope Senator Reid will realize the offensive nature of his remarks and apologize to those who disagree with the president’s policies because of one thing – they are hurting hardworking American families.”

Good for him.

This whole race baiting thing is getting so threadbare.

Really Harry?

I hate Obamacare but not Obama.

I hate when Obama said "You didn't build that." when denigrating the private sector that he despises.

I hate when Obama used the full force of many agencies of the federal government to intimidate, impede, and harass American patriots who are his political opponents.

I hate that Obama left those poor people to die in Ben Ghazi and is lying about it now.

I hate that Obama lives the life of a king while Americans are suffering without jobs and without Hope, the Hope he used to sell the hopelessness that he has inflicted on the country.

And that Harry Reid would go there shows you how evil he is. Like I said. Good for you, Tim Scott.
