Is it all over red rover? According to this report, it looks like Charlie Rangel has finally discovered that he cannot continue to condone the intimidation of the Obama Administration.
Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) said Wednesday that he believes President Barack Obama owes the American public explanations for both the seizure of Associated Press phone records by the Department of Justice and the IRS targeting of conservative groups.
“I don’t think anyone truly believes that the president has given us a sufficient answer for America, much less the press,” Rangel said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “I think this is just the beginning and the whole idea of comparing this with Nixon, I really think is just, it doesn’t make much sense. But the president has to come forward and share why he did not alert the press they were going to do this. He has to tell the Americans, including me: What was this national security question? You just can’t raise the flag and expect to salute it every time without any reason and the same thing applies to the IRS.”
Of course I think the remainder of what Charlie Rangel said is somewhat hilarious in the circumstances. He can almost see the light, but he clings to his support of Obama and actually thinks that doofus will be able to sort it out, and even believes that Obama did not know about these things…. and I call bullshit on that one.
It is not just Charlie Rangel who appears to have been lost. Horror of horrors have you seen the comments made by nutter Ed Shultz?
