Forgiving Harry Reid and Joe Biden for saying something stupid in the past. Many Republicans may need to be forgiven too.
Barack Obama is a very intelligent guy and has wonderful human qualities. The fact that I attack Obama in Foreign Policy doesn't mean that I don't acknowledge his Greatness.
Harry Reid is now the objective and target of Republicans for something stupid that he said in the past. But Mr Obama once again gives example of Forgivance, one of the Great Qualities of this Great Man.
Many people used words in the past, that are now considered offensive and racist, or said them in private and someone made them public.
A person that is very kind and noble may have used these demeanings terms in private or by a "lapsus linguae", a mistake of the tongue.
Joe Biden, Harry Reid or any other politician may have said something "imprudent" in the past, but let's forget them because they have now another attitude.
Many people may have been real racists in the past and now they have voted for Obama and may vote for the Democrats in year 2010, and for Black or Minority Candidates.
I would even forgive Joe Wilson for saying "You Lie" to Obama, if he apologizes to the president and promises to be a good boy. ( And he is republican ).
Senator Jeff Sessions ( Republican, Alabama ) has said foolish things in the past and he seems to be correcting and becoming a better guy towards minorities.
I am told that Senator Lindsay Graham ( Republican, South Carolina ) said or did foolish things in the past, but now he is the best of Republicans and his demeanor and behaviour to minorities is an example for the best of Republicans.
I wish that the Republican Party had more Lindsey Grahams, in that case that Party would be in a better position for the future.
Anger, Wrath, Fear, Paranoia and Hate are not going to conduct the Republicans to the Presidency. They need a Gentleman like Ronald Reagan, and get rid of the urchins and brats ( at least as presidential candidates )
