Rep. Rangel: If Obama ‘Walked on Water,’ GOP Would Say He Can’t Swim

Rep. Rangel: If Obama ‘Walked on Water,’ GOP Would Say He Can’t Swim July 17, 2013 - 12:52 PM By Melanie Hunter

(CNSNews.com) – Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday compared President Barack Obama to Jesus, saying House Republicans would scrutinize him if he “walked on water.”

“If the president actually walked on water, I’m certain that the speaker’s group would be saying that the president can’t swim and that we ought to take another look at him,” Rangel said during a hearing by the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Health on the delay of the employer mandate and reporting requirements under Obamacare.

Rangel accused the GOP of not caring about the policy of the Affordable Care Act and caring about politics instead.

The full House will vote as early as Wednesday to delay the individual mandate – the part of Obamacare that requires Americans to buy health insurance by next year – and the employer mandate, which requires that employers with 50 or more employees offer health insurance.

Obama recently delayed the employer mandate – a move that House Speaker John Boehner said requires congressional authority and is unfair.

“There is no question that no one cares about what the policy is, and no one cares whether the president delayed anything. Actually, most anything that the president wants, the majority party in the House, they don’t want,” said Rangel.

He suggested that J. Mark Iwry, deputy assistant secretary of the Treasury for retirement and health policy, who testified at Wednesday’s hearing, was the “wrong person” to answer questions before the subcommittee.

If Obama could walk on water I would say he’s a race baiting Marxist with horrible foreign policy who can walk on water.

And if Obama sunk like a stone, the Democrats would claiming say he was helping the bottom-dwellers.

And besides Chuck,

The majority of the GOP, elected officials, are a bunch of sissy Marys who would never criticize your messiah.

Sorry, a clarification:

And if Obama sunk like a stone, the Democrats would say he was helping the poor, oppressed bottom-dwellers, and their plight is the fault of the 1%'ers that can float on top.

According to Rangel, if Obama did something really really incredibly great (or even something vaguely good) the GOP would still find fault. He might be right but so far we’ve not had a way to find out.

Isnt that our joke?: If Ronald Reagan would walk on water, the next days media headlines would read: "Reagan cant swim!"

Get some original material, Rangel.

If Obama could walk on water it would only be
because he’s standing on the backs of all
the Americans who came before him.

Walk on water? How about get gas and food prices down to where they were outrageous 5 years ago? How about a respectable unemployment rate? How about a non-corrupt government? Walk on water? Baby steps.

The emperor has no clothes.

Any observation or mention of that fact is seen as hurtful, divisive, and more than likely racist.

Anyone who makes such mention and/or observation is subject to official scrutiny and treatment as an enemy of the state.

Odumbo just THINKS he can walk on water. Bring him over here, we have a very deep lake he can test his skills on. I’ll supply the boat to get him out in the deepest area, once there, he’s on his own. he can choose either side of the boat too.

Charlie, Why are you comparing BO to perfection, while he remains so far below mediocraty?

The economy remains failed, in spite of the stock market enjoying the fruits of his money printing program.

Unemployment continues at disasterous levels.

Freedom, Privacy, and Liberty are stiffled at an alarming rate.

Energy productivity is being crushed by irrational policies.

Foreign Policy is a total mess, as your plan to destroy America’s standing in the world, achieves it’s goal.

No, Rep. Rangel, here’s a more likely scenario: If Obama shot Rush Limbaugh on the White House lawn, no charges would be filed.

If Obama and the First Wookie were busted with a satan-worshiping cult that used babies who had survived abortions in the basement of the White House for cannibalism, Charlie Rangel would claim "freedom of religion" as an excuse.

Oh, and any critics would be charged with racism, of course.

If he walked on water, I would know it was a trick and a stunt to fool the public and implement more of his dictatorship on the American people.

Remember, this is the president who accused people of “getting all wee-wee’d up”.

He’s not walking on water, he’s passing water.

ENOUGH..

I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH..

if we continue to encounter race baiters and those that wish to seek SPECIAL laws and rights regarding race, i have the solution..

CALL THESE BASTARDS OUT.. EVERYGODDAMN TIME THEY OPEN THEIR RACIALY DIVISIVE MOUTHS..

call out the reporter on the comments section of his/her article..

call them out at public speeches..

call them out in the courtrooms..

in other words, make their hate speech socially unacceptable, just like they do ours..

surprise statistic.. most blacks agree with this verdict, and also believe in the rule of law..

so do most hispanics, asians, europeans and americans..

call these bastards out and show in front of the entire nation what and who they are..

make it socially unacceptable..

if they want to have a frank talk about race, give it to them..

if you, your parents, your grandparents, and your great grandparents were born in this country, then here is the surprise..

YOU ARE AN AMERICAN..

not a black american..

not a white american..

not a hispanic american..

not anygoddamn hyphenated american..

YOU ARE AN AMERICAN..

just like me..

THAT IS OUR RACE..

anyone who disagrees is a race baiter..

call them out for who they are..
