liar liar pants on fire

At today's New York protests:

Among those marching were U.S. Rep Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., singer Patti Smith, and actors Roy Scheider, Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee. Rangel said the marchers were anything but unpatriotic.

“We support the troops, but we do not support the president,” Rangel said.

Yet he does not support the troops enough to vote in favor of a resolution doing just that.


Correct me if I'm wrong, but the title of the bill is:

" Expressing the Support and Appreciation of the Nation for the President and the Members of the Armed Forces Who are Participating in Operation Iraqi Freedom"

Perhaps he voted against the bill solely because of the inclusion of the word "President"?

Agreed. It doesn't of itself mean he doesn't support the troops; it may simply mean that he loathes the President far far more.

You would think that at a time like this, he could have bit the bullet and voted in favor, just to show support for the troops.

I'm with you on that one michele...however he's "standing by his convictions" or something. it's still lame, no matter how he might try to defend it.

yeah...this is just one of the reasons i'm going to be vehemently opposing him in 05...

the bastard has no respect for anyone except himself. and i think hes even lacking a little in that department too.

I blogged about this too. If he tries to split hairs over the inclusion of the President in the resolution, he's full of crap. Look at that roll call vote; even Bush-haters like Frank, Pelosi, Gephardt and Kennedy managed to vote for it. Rangel is a liar, pure and simple.

Roy Scheider, huh?

"We're gonna need a bigger brain..."
