Congressional Black Caucus Told To 'Zip It' On Syria


LINK

quote:

Rep. Charles Rangel's (D-N.Y.) outspoken skepticism as regards Barack Obama's Syrian mis-adventure must have set off alarm bells within the administration, prompting them to pressure the rest of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to shut up and sit down, perhaps until they're told what to say on the matter, if not how to actually vote.

Thank God for Charlie Rangel. Finally a voice of reason from the left.

It's so bad Obama is moving the blacks to the back of the bus now.

I don't understand why these folks still think Obama has something to offer them. He's a lame duck with zero credibility and it is increasingly evident daily. The more people that align themselves with this administration is begging for failure in the future.

Why do you think Hillary resigned and disappeared? She knew the shite was about to hit the fan and had to be out of the limelight so that the Clinton name will be a promise for change in the next election.

I glad that none of them are listening. Rangel, Barbara Lee, Elijah Cumming, Gregory Meeks and a few others have been all over TV blasting Obama.

EDIT: As a matter of fact, Lee started the anti-Syria war petition and so far she's gotten half the CBC to sign on.

You can't help the irony that a sitting president is telling the CBC to shut up and sit down, and to speak when told to. Especially considering Rangel got a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart in Korea. Rangel would be well within his rights to tell Obama to STFU.

And yet they were all over Kerry's past service as a defense against Putin's accusation.

I have a hunch that Rangel or someone else leaked this to the press in order piss off the members of the CBC and cause them to dig in against this war.

It's Jim Clyburn's job the whip the CBC for the White House, while Barbara Lee is working against the White House. If Clyburn loses this battle, it's all over for Obama. What's interesting about this is that Lee was the very first CBC member to endorse Obama back in 2007, after most of the rest of them had already jumped on Hillary's bandwagon.

Both he and Hillary have 2016 Presidential aspirations, so they're going to stay as far away from reporters as they can.

I'm just curious, is the strategy of telling black Democrats that they are being taken for fools by the white Democrats working for the Republican party yet?

The presentation of Obama and Kerry have been so bad, would you really want Biden chiming into explain the administration position?

Sadly, no. You would think that blacks should have more self-esteem than that, but alas, it has been robbed from them by the very Democratic Party to which they blindly pledge their allegiance.
