Rangel on Capitol Shooting: I Assumed It Was an Imbalanced Person Angry at Republicans

Charlie Rangel (D-NY) offered his thoughts on the incident yesterday at the Capitol, and provided a sneak peek at the kind of assumptions Democrats and the media make whenever a horrific incident like this occurs.

Via Politicker:

Although it’s still far from clear what caused today’s fatal incident on Capitol Hill–where a car chase and gunshots reportedly left one woman dead–federal lawmakers were placed in sudden lockdown and scrambling for answers.

Among them was New York Congressman Charlie Rangel, who said his first thought was that it related to the partial government shutdown currently gripping Washington.

“Listen, people are so frustrated and angry with members of Congress, particularly Republicans,” Mr. Rangel told Politicker today. “My first thought was that frustration ignited somebody already imbalanced and caused this type of thing.”

“There are people working for the government, not getting their paychecks, saying, ‘Why me?’” he added.

Rangel of course is the prototypical left-wing politician looking to score political off of a tragedy.  Remember, the initial response to the Boston Marathon Bombing was to blame white, conservatives or libertarians angry about Tax Day.
