Goodbye Charlie

And another one rides under the bus:

“I think Charlie Rangel served a very long time and served– his constituents very well. But these– allegations are very troubling,” Obama told Harry Smith in an interview to be aired on the “Early Show.” and first broadcast on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric.

“And he’ll– he’s somebody who’s at the end of his career. Eighty years old. I’m sure that– what he wants is to be able to– end his career with dignity. And my hope is that– it happens.”

Allahpundit wonders:

Now that House investigators have gone face-first into the tank by dealing Rangel a teensy wrist slap over 13 separate ethics charges, why would The One float a soundbite this ominous? He’s pouring gas on a fire that’s just started to fizzle. Maybe the interview was taped earlier this afternoon, before he’d heard that nothing more than a reprimand had been recommended to the ethics subcommittee?

    When His Magnificence says things like “Gee, we’ll really miss him”, it’s not looking good for Ol’ Charlie.

    California’s Maxine Waters (one of the leading philosophers of the Progressive Movement) is facing charges.

    From the Huffington Post:
    “… possible conflict of interest involving a bank that was seeking federal aid. Her husband owned stock in the bank and had served on its board.”

    “… before he’d heard that …” Typical Obama. “It doesn’t count until I say something about it.”
