Maybe Michael Steele is tired of being RNC chairman because I’m pretty sure that he just got himself fired. Despite approving of the president’s surge of troops into Afghanistan last December, he now says this:
“Keep in mind again, federal candidates, this was a war of Obama’s choosing. This is not something the United States had actively prosecuted or wanted to engage in.”…
“It was the president who was trying to be cute by half by flipping a script demonizing 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 to engage in Afghanistan.”
Predictably, calls for his head began immediately.
Strangely, I kind of agree with Michael Steele, even though I know he’s being a hypocritical partisan snipe. But, then, no one would want me as head of the RNC.
