If I could have a conversation with Charlie over this article and his comments in it, this is the course it may take:
"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?'"
Sorry, Charlie. Only the best tasting tuna gets to be Starkist and I do not lay awake at night worrying how you got your thieving ass into this mess either. And just so you know, I know how Obama got to be President. He lied his way into it and played the race card every time he got into a tight spot, along the way (just like you are doing).
But it's not enough to try and deflect attention away from your crookedness, you somehow feel the need to
"Why do black people have to bargain for what is theirs? Why do we have to wait for the right to vote? Why can't we get what God has given us? And that is the right to live as human beings and not negotiate with white southerners and not court the votes. Just do the right thing," Rangel said.
There you go again, Chuckie. You just cannot help dragging in the great civil rights battle, of which you had no part in. Can you? Not only that, you have to drag in white southerners into the conversation. How the hell do you know about white southern bigotry living in Harlem? Answer, you don't.
Bottom line Charlie, you are a racist. You are using your position in Congress to commit crimes that would be prosecuted, if you weren't bribing the ethics committee members, who are supposed to be investigating your dealings. As a means of desperation, you are playing the usual sick games, at the very the moment you feel the pressure from your sins being exposed. Deflection and projection are your favorite maladaptive coping mechanisms and you know how to use them well.
Now, it's time to resign. Time to give up not only your committee chairmanship, but your seat as well.
But as we all know, you are not a man that can be counted on, except when you can make money off of the public's trust. You cannot even be counted on to have the decency to be a patriot and pay your taxes, like your Vice-President says you should do. But then again, I have yet to hear anyone accuse you of being a patriot. On the other hand, I hear many who deem you to be a scumbag.
