Skip to comments.Amanda Carpenter: Clintonista Already Dishing Out Oppo Hit Pieces on Steele (FR mentioned)
Posted on 01/31/2009 11:03:41 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Well, that didn't take long.
Hillary Clinton's former research director dished up a nasty hit-piece memo on Michael Steele hours after he was elected the GOP's first black RNC Chairman.
He cites shaky resources like Think Progress, a blog for the lefty Center for American Progress for his research. This would be like me linking to comments on FreeRepublic to back up my facts.
Steele's clearly got the Dems scared.
And, I wonder why Hillary's old research man had oppo sitting around on Steele...?
Here's a sampling of some of the disgusting comments already being posted on the Huffington Post regarding Steele's race and new status in the GOP:
I guess the GOP tried to pull a McCain (pandering to women with Palin as his running mate) by trying to pander to the African-American community and possibly other minorities.
How nice for them, they managed to find a African American in their party. I guess they think this is their "Teflon" against Obama now LOL, LOL. "We can say all the racists stuff we want now" we're covered!
Expect a lot more talk like this from the Left. I'd also expect Steele to FIRMLY put them in their place in some of his early interviews.
The Democratic Party “ATTACK MACHINE” is now kicking in gear.
A hit piece on Michael Steele???
She’s a RACIST!!!!!!
She’s a RACIST!!!!!!
What else is knew, I was surprised it took them that long to do it.
Sweet Amanda of course meant to say, "This would be like me linking to comments on FreeRepublic to back up my facts. Although, jla has always intrigued, as well as inspired, me."
Now, to allay any apprehensions the rest of you may have over Amanda's comment, I believe all she is wanting to convey is that a political website, any political website, should not be used as a source when one wishes to relate facts of another person. As those 'facts' may be skewed on account of political bias.
Stay classy, Dems.
They were distracted a bit by trying to 'cover' for Geithner, Daschle and Rangel--
who, btw, are my first three nominees for a Task Force on IRS tax reform...lol
“a blog for the lefty Center for American Progress”
Leftists have an Orwellian gift for language.
They will Bork this fine person and conservative for as long as they fear her.
I find comments like that from the left to be maddening and hilarious at the same time.
It’s so far off target. It either displays a lack of understanding or a full blown attempt to deceive.
My focus and the focus of those I talked to about Steele, was directly related to his views, stands on the issues, and what his plans for the RNC would be. We didn’t discuss race. We talked about him and the other candidates, and whose views would be the most solid to lead the RNC.
I have admired Steele for a while now. When I have seen him on FoxNews, I have liked his demeanor, his points of view, and his ability to think on his feet. Yesterday I found that I may not have known all I should have about Steele. I will be watching him more closely in the future because of his views, but I certainly won’t be watching him closer because of his race.
Isn’t it racist to back a man simply based on race? When issues came up regarding Obama, the left dismissed them and called people racist. Obama should have been subject to open discussion on a number of issues, but the left didn’t want to be confronted with those matters. He was black. “Do you realize what his candidacy means for America? Do you realize it will be a new era? Do you understand he is, “The One”? The left went stark raving mad, avoiding even the pretense of giving Obama a critical look, before voting for him. Now that is what I call racism.
So who are the real racists? Who are the real misogynists? When it comes to Steele and Palin, there’s one party that has gone postal, while the other has ignored color of skin or gender, because they valued the person.
The Democrats should be ashamed of themselves.
Of course they are expected to hit back hard when afraid..they were afraid of Palin and so the concentration on her over McCain. Have always liked Steele!! He is smart ! eloguent !and can handle his own!!
Finally a leadership we can stand behind. He will pick a team that could change the course of the Republican Party.
They will accuse the Republican pary of "window dressing"..but in reality they know Steele is a real threat especially when things keep going wrong under Obamas choice of his team players-corruption with taxes and nanny issues..Obama has to spend his time cleaning up on Aisle 1..2...4..5..not a good Zen time under which to "perform" his duties. And it will get worse when people see who will really benefit under the stimulus package.
I love the racist tag coming from the libs who labelled Steele an oreo when he was running against a white man for the US Senate.
Who cares what the RATS say. If Steele keeps his head and steers us back to conservative principals we might have chance. He needs to actively help on kinking the RINOs out and put resources on conservative Republican up for election.
Sarah Palin appeared to be the only thoroughbred in a field of nags. (OK, make that champion quarterhorse in a field of plugs. I once owned a splendid quarterhorse).
Sarah appears to be holding up well against the onslaught.
(we should have rules for her, like we do for Ann)
an ACarp thread and no pics yet?
Hey Hillary, why not investigate the bulk of Obama’s picks for various positions, and yourself. That’d keep an investigator busy for a long time.
I know this is blasphemy, but I find her quite a bit more attractive than Ann or Michelle. I also like Mary Katherine Ham.
“they managed to find a African American in their party.”
Yep, one without a white mom from Kansas and a dad from Kenya.
They are scared stiff of the GOP making inroads into any of their pet special-interest groups: blacks (eg., Clarence Thomas, Michael Steele) or women (Sarah Palin), hispanics (Alberto Gonzales). So they have to destroy them before that happens.
(we should have rules for her, like we do for Ann)
I recall the Clarance Thomas hearings. Late into the night with what looked like an empty chamber and maybe one Senator left on the panel Thomas' black supporters were allowed to testify.
The MSM employees marveled at these young people's mastery of the issues. Shocked might be a better word.
The network commentators couldn't stop talking about how each one excelled, men and women. It was like the network employees were saying, "But, but.. how can these black people be competent. We should be speaking for them against Thomas' ilk. They've never been allowed.. I mean they're suppose to be demanding a chance . . . ."

I sense a lot of projection on the part of the left.
Remember that when Steele was running for Senator, the Dhimmicraps illegally invaded his credit records, “fired” two scapegoats (who took the fall for Upchuck Schumer himself, IMO), and then paid them for 5 months after “firing” them. (Working from home, I guess.)
So none of this is surprising. If it weren’t for dirty play, the Dhimmicraps would be out of the game. They know they lose if they play the game fairly.
My little girl on my homepage is a registered T'bred - War Admiral and Northern Dancer breeding. She's an old lady now and I just retired her -- but she's still a pretty thing.
I used to own a racing QH named Going Limits -- Three Bars and Top Deck breeding. He was 85th percentile when he was racing. His head wasn't quite on straight but he was fast and a great jumper.
Dear Amanda Carpenter,
FACT: There isn’t a single mainstream news source that can be trusted more than ANY Free Republic reply picked at random.
FACT: Information and analysis posted at Free Republic self-corrects to a far greater and more timely extent than does information in the MSM as the FR thread discussions move on.
Thus FR is a better, MORE reliable source than any mainstream media source.
Is this the same oppo guy who illegally downloaded Michael Steele’s credit reports when he was running for the Senate???
Did that person ever go to jail or not???? Does anyone care?
(Steele’s credit reports, by the way, turned out to be clean)
...I for one, will ignore anything the Big Lie (MSM) says about Michael Steele, for I learned not log ago they are the Democrat Party's brown nosed bootlickers.
If you look at the DNC Talking points and any headline from the New York Times, you will notice the content is quite similar, except the journalists use extra words for filler.
Hmmm, I wonder why she made that comparison.
O'Reilly compared FR to KOS, now an ally equating FR's comments to another left wing website?
She would be well advised to check this website a little closer before making offhand statements like that.
“why is that, do you think...?
because the lovely governor palin is a faithful christian. (and they do so hate the spiritual fullness of christians, especially female christians.)
You beat me to it.
It gets them off the anti-Rush Limbaugh crusade for a while.
I agree. Thanks for the comment T Lady.
To Amanda... If you are reading this thread as a lurker, what are you doing??? Sign up and become a FReeper!!! We need more exposure within conservative media outlets.
Liberals sure do quite a bit of projection of their own mindset upon others.
Stupid and completely predictable.
