Harry Reid: “Marco Rubio has to understand who he is…”

(By John Sexton, Hot Air) - About two weeks ago, Harry Reid was interviewed for a Hispanic-oriented political show called 'Mariowire'. The interviewer asks Reid for his opinion of Marco Rubio whom, he notes, talks like a member of the GOP despite the fact that he is “Latino.” Listen to Reid’s response:

Given all the race-baiting that the left is flinging around these days, I want to be careful not to overstate what’s in this clip. I also don’t want to understate it. It sounds to me as if Reid is saying that–by aligning himself with the Tea Party or taking a certain position on the debt ceiling–Marco Rubio has lost touch with his authentic self.
