This is getting old.
First it was Gov. Paterson. Now the dean of New York’s congressional delegation has played the race card — and just as the governor did, he’s using President Obama to do it.
Rep. Charles Rangel said Tuesday that “bias” and “prejudice” toward Obama are fueling opposition to health-care reform.
Those incendiary comments came on the heels of Paterson’s controversial comments about race that also mentioned the nation’s first black president.
“Some Americans have not gotten over the fact that Obama is president of the United States. They go to sleep wondering, ‘How did this happen?’ ” Rangel (D-Manhattan) said Tuesday.
Give it up, Charlie. You and your race baiting friends used up all of your desperate race cards during the election. Perhaps you should be concentrating on your own problems.
