Skip to comments.Charlie Rangel: Obama answers not enough
Posted on 05/15/2013 9:52:31 AM PDT by mandaladon
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 dont think anyone truly believes that the president has given us a sufficient answer for America, much less the press, Rangel said on MSNBCs Morning Joe. I think this is just the beginning and the whole idea of comparing this with Nixon, I really think is just, it doesnt 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 cant raise the flag and expect to salute it every time without any reason and the same thing applies to the IRS.

Yep. Just think about it.
If there were no Benghazi and these other scandals came out.. Rangel would be attacking anyone who dared to talk about them as racist.
But since Obummer needs a distraction
they want them talked up.
Charlie, for God’s sake, you are a smart man and in law school believed in this country.
The democrats need to put aside any ideology and look at this because if this isn’t stopped, this country is going to fall.
Meanwhile, last month 17 missile launch commanders at Minot AFB were removed from duty over concerns regarding “attitude”, safety violations, and compromised missile launch codes.
Pretty funny how all these lefty h8thers are now having a come to Jesus moment. There must be a bigger scandal to come.
“Rangel is on Obamas team”
boehner is on obamas team
Oh. My. When you’ve lost Charlie Rangel . . .
Of course, the “honorable” Charlie Rangel has his own Jones about the IRS. They tagged him off base a few years back, and I’ll bet he has a long memory. This is payback.
Good. Let whatever they have to say take center stage when things die down a bit. Keep Benghazi going.
Wow, how short are your collective memories?
The CHUCKSTER is a HUGE HILLARY fan. He only went over to the dark side when he saw the writing on the wall.
Now, for post two, you are half correct. But the reason he wants to downplay Benghazi is because Dame Hillary is more to blame there.
He WILL help the girl in 2016, but getting people off Benghazi, and subsequently his girl, is paramount.
Throwing that “not down for the struggle, not authentic, negro” under the bus, he’ll do that with glee.
Down on the IRS? Doubt that, he’s not in jail with Wes Snipes is he?
Talk about the kettle calling the pan black.
They are idiots and Benghazi scares the hell out of them.
There must be a bigger scandal to come.
IMO,Bengazi was supposed to be a clean kidnapping and swap for the Blind Sheik. Until I see difinitive proof otherwise, that’s what I believe.
2 minor scandals IRS & AP are a diversion for sure.
Those 2 CIA/Navy Seals ruined the clean kidnapping. Think about it, Al Quida didn’t need to attack. They were giving them the guns anyways.
The idea is to keep the pressure on your local congress persons phone calls emails. Keep sending out information to your address book. We the people should no longer tolerate this administration.
It is all up to all of us to keep the pressure on all 3 issues and there will be more issues.
Trust me there is much much more coming out, all these 3 issues are just the very tip of the iceberg, hold on there is much more coming out and we have 3 1/2 years of this dysfunctional administration to go before we have another election.
This country needs to clean house - we need conservative leaders from the bottom, school boards, city, country, state,and finally the top house, senate, and executive branch. This is how the left did it they became active in local politics, and that is the only way to take back this country.
Agree with your take.

Tell us all about it, ya tax cheat.
Rangel is a tax cheat.
He can suck me.
