Charlie Rangel Blasts Obama: ‘Saying You’re Sorry Doesn’t Help Me Worth a Damn at the Polls’

Democrats are not happy with how the continued Obamacare rollout boxed them into a corner next week, and a few of them are speaking out, including New York’s Charlie Rangel, who’s shown a willingness to publicly criticize President Obama in the past. This time Rangel took on the president for his weak apology for all the problems surrounding the health care law...

Rangel wasn’t satisfied by any of Obama’s explanation at all, according to the New York Daily News.

"Still, some Democrats called for making legislative changes in addition to those Obama announced. Democrats said that colleagues vulnerable in next year’s election remained concerned about a backlash from voters.

“If I had the problem, saying you’re sorry doesn’t help me worth a damn at the polls, unless I can staple your remarks to the ballot,” Rep. Charles Rangel (D-Manhattan) said."

I love the touching concern of those lovely dems. It's all about them---and their reelection. I don't detect much sympathy for all those gravely ill people losing their insurance--or at best, having the anxiety of waiting for some sort of half-assed solution.

I agree. There are millions of people that are wondering what will happen at this point when it comes to health insurance.

Charlie is another glaring example of a professional politician who's gone waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay beyond his actual usefulness. At this point, well into his eighties, Charlie is just another doddering fool who recognizes only one thing -- his hold on power. Anything that threatens that threatens him personally.

Any normal person would have retired decades ago. Professional politicians who go beyond a couple of terms are in it for the power, not for what they can do for their constituents.

It's already been done. He got away with it.

This is dead on. Rangel is utterly indifferent to the damage done by his policies, which makes him a typical Democrat. Unfortunately, his seat is safe. He is too well-entrenched in a rotten borough to worry about challengers, and if his history of tax evasion, indifference to the impacts of his policies and general cluelessness hasn't damaged his reelection chances, nothing will.
