Dem Lawmaker: GOP Can Save Itself By Being More Democrat

June 24, 2013 by  

Representative Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) has set about on an odd mission: saving the Republican Party by urging members of the GOP to support Democrat legislative proposals.

Wait, what?

Rangel argued on FOX News over the weekend that if conservatives didn’t support an amnesty-laden immigration effort, the Republican Party would likely dissolve in coming years.


“I would hate for them to see themselves just go out of business and we don’t have this competitive form of ideas in our great country,” he said. “It’s the right thing for the country, and it certainly is a right thing to make certain we have two parties competing against each other.”

Rangel said that conservatives have pushed back against amnesty for mostly racist reasons.

“There are many people from States that are not very friendly to new Americans, or the possibility that we have new Americans,” Rangel surmised during the interview.

While Rangel’s remarks seem bizarre at least, he is echoing an opinion made recently by fellow Democrat Bob Menendez of New Jersey. Menendez also believes the GOP is endangering its future by not catering to Hispanics.

Of course, why wouldn’t Democrats want a whole GOP made up of RINOs like Senator John McCain of Arizona, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and upcoming Democrat-in-training Marco Rubio of Florida. Many conservatives, however, would likely argue that eliminating lawmakers like the aforementioned would strengthen the GOP and reinvigorate its truly conservative base.

    Let’s see now….if Republicans walk like a dumbocrat, talk like a dumbocrat, look like a dumbicrat…….wouldn’t that then make them a dumbocrat….AKA RINO’s? I wonder if Rangel realizes he has a 2-digit IQ. Rhetorical, of course.

  • momo

    Gee…I want to be more like Rangel and Menendez. Rangel dodges his taxes and Menedez picks up underage hookers, who wouldn’t want to do that?

    With the catholic backed democrat party the GOP hasn’t got a chance. With the american pope, even the first jesuit pope (better learn what that means in a hurry) catholic joe biden and the hundreds of catholics in the house and senate, will turn this country over to him. AMERIKA IS LOOKING IN THE WRONG DIRECTION. ALL these scandals are for one purpose and one purpose only and that is to allow the vatican time to re-organize their anti Christian synods and counsels. IF YOU TRULY ARE AMERICAN PLEASE INVESTIGATE THESE THINGS BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE! The forth amendment has been declared dead by the supreme court.


    With a few more RINO’s I believe Charlie tax cheat is absolutely correct, just what the real R’s need is a grimmy little tax paid tax cheat to give them his useless advise….
