CHARLIE RANGEL: I would say that if there's anyone that believes that the color of the president is not an issue with those people who adamantly oppose him, they're not realistic. It is unfortunate. Afterall, he did get elected. But all it takes is a group, they call themselves the Tea Party, to be able to impede the good Republicans from cooperating the way they should with Democrats so that at the end of the day the country succeeds, but if you notice whenever this group gets together against Obama the confederate flag is there with them. When I was involved in civil rights struggles and the communists were trying to get in, we would tell them you get yourself another corner, this is the civil rights demonstration. They don't do that with the Confederates.
