Critics have noted the irony that Bowen is calling for an open discussion that fosters mutual respect in an intemperate speech delivered to students who are leaving the school, and will therefore have no chance to respond.
No chance to respond? Will their tongues be cut out and their hands amputated?

What a stupid argument.

Had the two been republicans they'd be out of politics. Had the two been republicans and made those comments in 2014, your ilk would want them stripped of every asset and then jailed.
Both Biden and Reid are phonies -- racists 'standing up for civil rights' for no other reason than political expediency and furthering their political careers.
Harry Reid has come under criticism this week for his reported remarks about President Obama's skin tone and vernacular. NAACP Senior Vice President for Advocacy Hilary Shelton appeared on Fox News Monday morning to explain how Reid's comments, while awkward, are not inherently offensive.

As Shelton explained, the NAACP evaluates members of Congress according to their track record on Civil Rights issues: "Harry Reid is someone who has always scored an "A" on the NAACP's legislative report card. We are more concerned with his record than his rhetoric."

The guy has been there now into his second four year term. He was the smartest thing since sliced bread according to the MSM. Now it's still George Bush's fault? When is it Barack Hussein Obama's fault? After all he said he could fix it seven years ago, and hasn't done diddily?

Bush Spins Scandalous Neglect of Vets

One of the surprising claims that stood out among the combined 90 pages of so-called accomplishments was the White House’s glowing assessment of Bush’s record on veterans’ issues. Bush claims he “provided unprecedented resources for veterans” over the past eight years and provided “the highest level of support for veterans in American history.”

The White House made these claims in the face of what former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld might have called a “known known”– that the treatment of veterans returning from deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan has been a national disgrace, highlighted most dramatically by the neglect and substandard care given wounded troops at Walter Reed and other military hospitals.

The budget increases that have occurred mostly were enacted over Bush’s opposition or related to the fact that injuries from the Iraq War far exceeded the administration’s rosy projections in early 2003. The Bush team especially underestimated how many cases of post-traumatic stress disorder to anticipate as well as the number of brain injuries, which have been endemic to the Iraq War where insurgents made effective use of “improvised explosive devices,” or IEDs.

Before Bush ordered the invasion of Iraq in March 2003, documents released by the Department of Veterans Affairs said it expected a maximum of 8,000 cases of post-traumatic stress disorder.

However, according to a study released last year by the RAND Institute, there are more than 320,000 veterans of the Iraq and Afghan wars suffering from major depression, PTSD and/or traumatic brain injury. The report found that the VA has been and continues to be ill-equipped to deal with these cases when soldiers return from combat, especially after multiple tours.

Primetime Racism on Fox
Hannity’s long history of boosting bigots
His television and radio shows feature a parade of pundit grotesques who join the host in condemning African-Americans, the group that receives the brunt of his bigotry. In this capacity, Hannity also acts as a sort of one-man fire brigade, rushing to extinguish accusations of anti-black racism, and defending, exonerating or rehabilitating the racists behind the words and deeds.
Routinely casting black people as villains, even in stories in which they are obviously victims, Hannity just as regularly casts people who have victimized African-Americans as hapless, persecuted victims themselves. Black people who have been clearly wronged are virtually nonexistent in Hannity’s world.

And then there is the No Child Left Behind nonsense, the Terry Schiavo fiasco, and all sorts of other deviosity Jeb left in his wake.

Barack Hussein Obama and the democrat party have perfected the art of passing blame on to their opponents and skirting responsibility for anything negative.

They're so good at what they do, there are posters here who actually believe Obama didn't lie about the ACA and that we are in the midst of a ¨hot economy.¨

Saying offensive, bigoted remarks is okay as long as you pay off those you piss on?

Republicans have perfected the art of denying and spinning their history of failure. Apparently you've forgotten that Bush took a thriving economy and trashed it. Compared to what Obama inherited this is a "hot economy". Pick any measure used to value the economy and compare 2008 to 2014. Spin that dumbass.

I see you are still confused.

The issue is hidden waiting lists and hospitals lying about their wait times so they could receive bonuses.
