Once again the Democrats in Congress are proving that their leadership is soft and incompetent. How can they allow Charles Rangel to ruin, by giving the GOP ammo, the next election with his unscrupulous behavior? I know the investigation is on going but this is why they need a real leader, to pull him aside and say ” you are off the Ways and Means Committee and you will do what is best for the party” but instead Pelosi just allows this issue to grow by not forcing Rangel to step down. Could you imagine the positive pub Pelosi would have garnered for standing up against corruption that involved members of her own party? Also, it would have been the right thing to do, by not looking at party affiliation and just looking at the allegations. As for the crybabies on the right, just shut up. You allowed the likes of Tom Delay to run amuck for a decade completely unchecked, so whining now about Rangel just proves your hypocrisy and complete lack of introspection. Once again this is why we need a legitimate third choice, to shake up the network of thieves.
