Here’s what I don’t get. Rangel is a democrat criticizing the President, the war, the deaths in Iraq, and the draft on one hand, and yet sponsoring a draft bill H.R.393on the other hand. Does he think this sleight of hand, this cheap magician’s trick will go unnoticed?
Sheesh there are probably as many lying :liar: Democrats as there are evil lying Republicans.
Doesn’t that make you furious? :furious:
