The last days as GOP Chairman for Michael Steele?Posted: 07/03/2010
Oh boy. Check out what GOP Chairman Michael Steele just said at a Republican confab:
“Keep in mind, again, our federal candidates, this was a war of Obama’s choosing. This is not, this is not something the United States had actively prosecuted or wanted to engage in. It was one of those, one of those areas of the total horde of foreign policy…that we would be a background sort of shaping the changes that were necessary in afghanistan as opposed to directly engaging troops. But it was the president who tried to be cute by…flipping the script deomonizing iraq while saying the battle really should be in Afghanistan. Well if he’s such a student of history, has he not understood that, you know, that’s the one thing you don’t do is engage in a land war in Afghanistan? All right? Because everyone who has tried over a thousand years of history has failed. And there are reasons for that. There are other ways that we can engage in Afghanistan without committing more troops…”
Wow. Michael Steele, that takes balls. He wants to personally man the anti-war wing of the Republican Party, in order to attack the President. Call me crazy, but I don’t think many Republicans will be joining him out on that limb anytime soon. In fact, they may be shopping for a new Chairman.
