Michael Steele Speaks Out Against the Afghan War

RNC Chairman Michael Steele embarasses himself and the GOP again.


Fresh from the "Is he still talking?" file, RNC Chairman Michael Steele has put his foot in his mouth again. What is it this time? Trash talking about President Obama and the war in Afghanistan. Steele blamed Obama for a starting a war that was in place before President Obama took office and that was championed by his party. He even questioned President Obama's intelligence for continuing a war against a country that no one has been able to defeat in "1,000 years." All of this on the cusp of the Fourth of July. We cannot make this up, and the Republican party will never make up for putting this guy in charge. Thinking before speaking is a skill that would serve Mr. Steele and his party well.
