Looks like the bus is about to pull away from the curb again and it is time for another sacrifice to the ongoing saga of one Barack Obama. Facing certain defeats in the house and devastating loses in the senate come November, the Obama administration is pulling no punches when it comes to trying to prop up the failing regime. And Charlie Rangel is just the most recent casualty of a complacent administration that cares more about it's legacy than it's patriarchs.
Not that Charlie doesn't deserve it? But he might have at least thought that the great one would spare him the indignity of a shove under the bus. Not so with this messiah.

President Barack Obama has kept mum on the fate of Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) for days -- but he tells CBS News that it's time for the embattled 80-year-old former Ways and Means Chairman to end his career "with dignity."
"I think Charlie Rangel served a very long time and served-- his constituents very well. But these-- allegations are very troubling," Obama told Harry Smith in an interview to be aired on the "Early Show." and first broadcast on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric.
"And he'll-- he's somebody who's at the end of his career. Eighty years old. I'm sure that-- what he wants is to be able to-- end his career with dignity. And my hope is that-- it happens. "
