Oooops, He did it again? What do you think about Harry Reid's comments? ;o)

Harry Reid has done put his foot in his mouth again -- and this time he might really wish he'd been more careful with his words. The Senate Majority Leader called Chinese President Hu Jintao a "dictator" on Tuesday -- the same day Hu arrived on a diplomatic visit to the U.S. to discuss their at-times rocky relationship.

"I am going to go back to Washington tomorrow and meet with the president of China. He is a dictator," Reid told local TV talk show "Face to Face with Jon Ralston."

"He can do a lot of things through the form of government they have." The inflammatory remarks were made after Ralston asked if Reid thought the lame-duck tax cut deal was a good one.

The Nevada senator quickly backtracked from his statement. "Maybe I shouldn't have said dictator, but they have a different type of government than we have and that's an understatement," Reid said.

  • Meh, that's not nearly as bad as: "Anybody here today who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior, I'm telling you, you're not my brother and you're not my sister, and I want to be your brother," - Alabama Republican Gov. Robert J. Bentley

    Separation of church and state... Seems he forgot about that.

  • 1) I don't think what he said THIS time was a big deal.

    2) Reid is one of the reasons TERM LIMITS should be put in place like YESTERDAY..he is OLD and OUT of TOUCH
