You have to break out the magnum stupid to embarass a sleazebag like Rangel.
He also suggests re-instating the draft.
I’d start with McCain’s kids and grandkids and work our way down the seniority list in Congress.
Rangel: “I love Obama, but...”
Reggie Love: “ I love Obama’s butt”

Well, I guess Charlie isn’t embarrassed anymore after obama pointed out it was the WORLD that drew the red line. Well, he could be embarrassed for all of mankind.
How many of us feel like we are in Never/Never land.
Charlie Rangel is speaking from his heart re not bombing/invading Syria.
Putin sounds more truth/believable and presidential each day when he criticizes our boy wonder posing as POTUS.
