SO OFFENDING BLACKS WORKED OUT SO WELL...:

Harry Reid can't get past Joe Lieberman flap (GLENN THRUSH & MANU RAJU, 1/14/10, Politico)

On Wednesday, just as the uproar over Reid’s racially charged remarks about then-candidate Barack Obama was flagging, The New York Times Magazine posted a preview of Sunday’s profile on Reid that quoted the Nevada Democrat as saying Lieberman “double-crossed” him by suggesting he’d support a Reid-brokered compromise that he later opposed.

The story cited unnamed associates of the majority leader who said Reid was so enraged he briefly considered scuttling the whole bill before consenting to Lieberman’s demand.

Lieberman’s staff pushed back hard on that account — providing POLITICO with a private letter he wrote Reid in early December, setting out his concerns over a Reid-brokered expansion of Medicare three days before he aired those concerns on national TV.

The Times stands behind the story — and so do several Democratic aides who say Reid made no secret of his anger with Lieberman.


...he decided to go the Jewish stab in the back route?
