Heh, I’m not sure this is top news … but, well another example of post racial MSNBC. Should I laugh or should I cry? Even Eugene Robinson could not contain his laughter as Matthews poses his feel good racial question to newly deposed RNC Chairman Michael Steele. The man who almost forgot Obama was black … strikes again. Read more
Wolf Blitzer interviews GOP Chairman Michael Steele on the Jimmy Carter comment “the protestors are racists” line. Steele is justifiably outraged. And when Wolf pushes back … he levels the charge that has needed to be leveled for decades.
As an added bonus, Steele takes on Dowd and Congressman Johnson seeing racism in Joe Wilson’s remark
This weekend’s funny comes to us from Meet The Press. Read more
For me, the party made enough of a change two years ago that I stopped all contributions. When there is a pretty solid difference between my core political beliefs and the party that I belong to, what else should I do?
See the updated Steele comments below.
And quite honestly, for the new Republican National Committee chairman to call Rush Limbaugh’s show as incendiary, ugly entertainment you’re nailing the door shut buddy.
I guess my reaction was to close my wallet and start Conservative247 and join up with Vicevich.
We have no conservative elected leadership, and I’m not sure any of good recruits would want to step forward into the role. Why bother? You can be a pundit, talking head, radio show host, small business owner, company manager, executive or blogger and avoid all of the hassle.
Hinderaker at Power Line Blog calls it the most disheartening story of the day, but I don’t think John has it right. How can you throw Rush under the bus when you – DNC chairman Michael Steele – really has no power among conservatives?
I know I wasn’t that desperate, so here’s the video for readers from the DL Hugley show on CNN.
“My intent was not to go after Rush – I have enormous respect for Rush Limbaugh,” Steele said in a telephone interview. “I was maybe a little bit inarticulate. … There was no attempt on my part to diminish his voice or his leadership.” …
“I went back at that tape and I realized words that I said weren’t what I was thinking,” Steele said. “It was one of those things where I thinking I was saying one thing, and it came out differently. What I was trying to say was a lot of people … want to make Rush the scapegoat, the bogeyman, and he’s not.”
“I’m not going to engage these guys and sit back and provide them the popcorn for a fight between me and Rush Limbaugh,” Steele added. “No such thing is going to happen. … I wasn’t trying to slam him or anything.”
The debate is raging over whether any spending on anything of any kind is stimulating to the economy. Pell grants, schools, bridges, ATVs, Honey Bees, grass on the mall, etc. doesn’t grow the economy. The work is temporary and requires taking money from citizens. But alas White House Advisor and ABC host of This Week, George Stephanopoulos doesn’t understand.
Finally a frustrated Steele blurts out … “If government jobs could grow he economy George, why don’t we all quit our private jobs and get government jobs.?”
I think that’s the moment the tingle went up George’s leg.
