Charlie Rangel: “We have to really cut back in our spending and we have to raise revenue in order to do it”

by editor on June 3, 2011

Perhaps our earlier condemnations of Charlie Rangel were too harsh. We assumed he was corrupt, but this video clip leads us to believe he is merely stupid.

Here’s ol’ Charlie spouting Keynesian nonsense (pardon our redundancy) with Judge Andrew Napolitano on Fox News.

“We have to really cut back in our spending,” Charlie said. “Everyone knows that, and we have to raise revenue in order to do it.”

Sit back and read that sentence again. Luxuriate in its utter stupidity. Swim in its ignorance.

All brought to you courtesy of Charlie Rangel, D-NY.

This is the kind of shit that makes Leftists like Olivia drool all over themselves.

Olivia drools over pretty much everything, then starts rabidly spitting when she attempts to convince all of us that we are stupid.

It’s not an either or situation.
He is both stupid and corrupt.

you guys do realize, they’re not stupid, it’s part of a plan, to bankrupt us, to destroy the United States. To end our sovereignty. What he is saying (poorly) is that he wants to cut deficit spending, by raising revenue. Thus keeping spending at current levels, without borrowing more.

Yet another terrific sound bite for the (worthless) RNC that will be ignored.

So, if a white man said that, and we called it stupid, what would they call us?

Raise revenue? Gee, maybe Charlie can help out with that by paying some of his taxes once in a while.

Al Capone was taken down because he did’nt give the IRS their cut…

BTW, I just to point out 1 little detail about Keynesian economics. Keynes never believed in structural deficits, the gov’t priming the pump part, yes. But not the structural debt part. What we have in Washington DC now, & in most state capitals, is the very definition of structural debt. It’s easy to spend other people’s money with the power of gov’t, backed up by the gun if you resist.

Olivia, can you rationalize Congressman Rangel’s logic?

RockingHorseGuy

Yes, I think we need a highly intellectual translation.

Fon’t encourage her bullsh#t. She blows u my notifications and annoys me to boot, since she never really wants to discuss anything, just to bicker and argue with whatever ANYONE say. Of course we are the ones with closed minds, who will not alter our point of view, no matter what “facts” are presented, Sounds like projection to me.,

She seems to be staying out of this particular article. Maybe this subject matter isn’t her cup of tea. I’m surprised, because she seems to have an opinion about everything else!

We at least need some translations of what we’re saying, so we can understand ourselves.

Eres muy gracioso, Mi Amigo!

She won’t or can’t come on here to rationalize the Congressman’s logic. Perhaps she disagrees with him. Perhaps she’s working a 72-hour shift.

I’m sure she agrees with him. He’s an idiot. She’s out getting the air in her head changed.

Charlie Rangel is at the vanguard of the tip of the iceberg when it comes to avaliable stupidity. He and millions more like him have hit the fan!

The funny thing is that when he retires from politics you know that some banking institution will put him on their board of directors 🙂

We like to kid that liberalism is a mental disease but it really is. This type of thinking is prevalent in the democommie party.

In order not to go bankrupt we have to borrow money to spend-Joe Biden

These people really do think that 1+1=POTATO and you can’t convince them otherwise. If you do you will be called mean, stupid, or racist.

The big question is, does one have to be mentally ill to think these contradictory ideas or does thinking these contradictory ideas make you mentally ill? My money is that one has to have some bad wiring to start with and then then gets worse as one tries to come to terms with the illogicality of your collectivist faith. Whatever the reason these people are truly mentally disturbed and have somehow come to power and that is very bad.

This will not end well. It will take a long time. You will not like it.

Just like an addict needs to stop their addiction by obatining more of the substance they are addicted to. Crazy old man. Further more, who in the hell does Charlie Rangel thinks he is to lecture any way about taxes and paying more. Cheating slim ball.

Funny (his bowtie) & sad (his philosophy) at the same time. Doubly sad that there are so many in Congress like Charlie, and as Nuke said above, that they keep getting voted in, despite my best efforts. Makes me want to go back to bed & throw the covers over my head.

Nice tie though. All he needs now is a fake pair of coke bottle glasses and he can keep pretending he is an intellectual. “Look at me, I am an old black man with a bow tie I must be a genius.”

This is just another example of Chuck’s stupidity – it’s fairly evident by now. The sad thing is all the morons who keep voting this buffoon into office, and dare I say, mainly cause he’s black.

What other reason could there possibly be?

Yes, it is an example of Charlie’s stupidity, but it sure won’t be portrayed that way anywhere but on conservative websites and maybe somewhere on TV (Hannity, maybe Beck). However, let’s see how many “Sarah Palin is so dumb” articles come out given her recent flub about Paul Revere. Ready? Set. Go!!
