Sen. Harry Reid Calls Chinese President a Dictator
Out of the mouth of a red-diaper-doper-baby comes the unintended truth: China’s Hu Jintao is more dictator than president.
I wonder if Obama and the Lame Stream Media will see fit to chastise Sen. Reid for his fiery, political rhetoric? How about censuring him? Yeah, I thought not:
Harry Reid, Senate Majority Leader, calls Chinese President Hu Jintao a ‘dictator’ during U.S. trip

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.
