Barack Obama Throws Charlie Rangel Under the Bus … “It’s Time to End His Career” … Is it Obama’s Business?
Obama quick to throw under the bus before the process has a chance to work, did Obama just say that Rangel acted stupidly? Why is this President’s MO always a rush to judgment?
As previously reported, Barack Obama stated in an interview with CBS News that it was time for US Rep Charles Rangel (NY-D) to retire with dignity. Is Barack Hussein Obama really the first black elected US President? Maybe Bill Clinton was after all. Is it really Obama’s place as head of the Executive branch of government to be telling any one in the Legislative branch what he or she should be doing with their career?
Obama’s comments using the past tense when referring to Charlie Rangel should trouble the voting constituency that most backs Barack Obama. Why is Obama so quick to throw Charles Rangel under the bus? Why is Obama interfering in something that is none of his business? One would think that “The One” has enough issues to deal with than to get involved with House matters. After all the water that Democrat House Reps have carried for Obama and the fact that they have risked their political careers to support Obama’s socialist and unpopular agenda, how many Democrat politicians are paying attention to how quick Obama is in his lack of support and how fast the shove was under the bus?
Do Democrats really want to trust Obama to have their backs after he has led the party into the ditch and over the cliff?

President Obama calls the allegations against Rep. Charlie Rangel ‘very troubling’ in an interview with CBS’ Harry Smith. Rep. Rangel was a fervent supporter of Hillary Clinton in the 2008 presidential primaries.
Why is Obama so quick to throw one of the Founding members of the Black Caucus under the bus before the bi-partisan Ethics Committee has an opportunity to do its job? Obviously, it does not appear good for Rangel and the 13 ethics charges he faces. Will they be enough to have him removed from office, who knows? On FNS this morning Liz Cheney made a fair assessment that Rangel showed “real imperial arrogance” in being the chairman of the committee that writes the tax law and then does not bother to pay his. However, it is one thing for an analyst to make a comment, it’s another thing for a President.
Even Conservative Bll Kristol said this morning on Fox News Sunday that all politicians should shut up when it comes to Charlie Rangel and let the Ethics Committee run its course. Kristol realizes that this is a Democrat issue and it is up to them to drain their own swamp. Republicans do not need to pile on, the specter of a Rangel and Maxine Waters ethics investigation prior to the 2010 midterm election will take care of themselves in the eyes of the voters.
“Just shut up,” the Weekly Standard’s Bill Kristol said on “Fox News Sunday” when asked what Republicans should do about Rangel. “There is a bipartisan ethics committee. Let the process go forward they don’t need jump on this — they will just get questioned. Believe me there are plenty of congressman in both parties who have been imperial and arrogant and who have centers named after them … The idea that republicans should go around throwing stones at Charlie Range; is just foolish on their part.”
