While the Obama administration may be floundering in effectively executing a sound war strategy, it's ridiculous to say the war in Afghanistan is "not something the United States... wanted to engage in." Following 9/11 we ALL wanted to go into Afghanistan, Democrats and Republicans, and as far as I know, the vast majority of Steele's own party membership supports our continued fight to banish the Taliban and hunt down Osama bin Laden in and around the Middle Eastern country.
In response to Steele's remarks, the Weekly Standard's Bill Kristol immediately called for the RNC chair to resign. Meanwhile, Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, defended Steele. And despite previously calling Rush Limbaugh's radio chatter "ugly and incendiary," El Rushbo today defended Steele and lashed out at the liberal media for itching to write a story that "they (Republicans) fired a black guy."
Not to be left out of the debate, Jon Stewart invited Steele to appear on his Comedy Central show:
|The Daily Show With Jon Stewart||Mon - Thurs 11p / 10c|
|Steele Crazy After All These Years|
What do you think? Should Steele resign?
