It seems Charlie Rangel (D) Manhattan (the soul-mate of John Murtha) made some outlandish remarks that involve using the race-card to explain away the sorrowful outcome of Obamacare.
Carl Campanile at the New York Post reported this:
Rangel then likened the battle over health-care expansion for the uninsured to the fight for civil rights.
"Why do we have to wait for the right to vote? Why can't we get what God has given us? That is the right to live as human beings and not negotiate with white southerners and not count the votes. Just do the right thing," he said. end quote~
Actually, it seems that Gov.Paterson and Charlie Rangel are the racists. With the poor polling results that Paterson is receiving, and the ethic investigations (tax evasion) that Rangel is forced to face, cause these two politicians to turn to the ever present weapon of the race card.
Has Charlie Rangel stopped to think of the racist whites that elected him to office? It also seems that America has been very good to Mr.Rangel.
Charles Rangel would be more than happy to keep the focus on health-care and racism instead of his ethic problems.
Fox News reported this from Rangel when he was at a town hall meeting on Tuesday: "Some Americans have not gotten over the fact that Obama is president of the United States. They go to sleep wondering, 'How did this happen?'... "
Some of us go to bed at night and wonder why it has taken so long for Rangel to be investigated by the House Ethics Committee.
