Skip to comments.Coulter Defends Steele, DNC ‘In No Position’ to Complain...With Dems' Past Playboy Parties and All
Posted on 04/05/2010 5:43:54 PM PDT by 198ml
Ann Coulter for one has refused to pour gasoline on the Voyeur fire - pledging her full support and offering praise for RNC Chairman Michael Steele.
As Good Morning America's George Stephanopoulos so touchingly pointed out to Steele, a few Republican leaders have been publicly highly critical of Steele and according to a "poll of insiders" only 20 percent consider him an asset to the party.
"Everyone seemed to like him and recently it's like story after story after story - is this guy being villainized?" Fox Business Channel's Eric Bolling asked Coulter on the April 5 "Happy Hour."

“...but the dems are sleazy too!”
Great motto for a conservative party. /s
I’m far less concerned about that than I am at the fact that he’s a liberal who can’t resist playing the race card.
Good on Ann. Good for her, it’s time someone spoke up on behalf of Steele. Smart, smart lady.
The only ones who are pouring gasoline on the fire are the media, Steele himself and the Democrats. Steele’s obligation is to the GOP, not whoring a bunch of sound bytes for the media. Until he shows initiative to actually lead the GOP toward victory, I am calling for him to walk away from the job he now holds.
Just the dems throwing more sh$t on the wall to see if it sticks...Wish RNC would grow a pair...Not going to happen!!
Then that’s the first time she’s let me down. Steele is an embarrassment to what’s left of the GOP, and if he’s still there in November, we’ll pay dearly for it. He has been everything the democrats want us to have in November, another idiot McCain in an affirmative action suit.
The issue dear Ann is not the party its this RNC ass_ole basicly calling the entire party racist when said he is held to a higher standard by the party because he is black and he goes on, so is Obama.... Good grief and the RNC wants my money ......
OMG....we agree on something? ;^)
I’d give Steele a pass on this, allowing him the excuse that it happened under his radar—IF he hadn’t already screwed up 99 different ways already.
Is he the kind of guy who would approve of a party meeting at a lesbian bondage club? Well, judging from the rest of his record, I just don’t know. There are few signs in his regular handling of the job that he has any moral values or common sense.
That makes it part of a pattern of incompetence. Sorry, no pass.
This isn’t about bondage-gate. Steele essentially whined to Snuffleupagus that blacks like him and Obama have it tougher than everyone else in this country. Last time I looked, Obama was the leader of the free world, and Steele was the leader of the GOP. Real leaders don’t have time to sit around whining.
Coulter is obviously having a McCain-Palin moment. VERY bad form Anne.
You think that got past ANN?
...but the dems are sleazy too!
Great motto for a conservative party. /s
But there’s a subtle important difference here. I’m not so certain that Coulter is defending Steele as much as saying inasmuch as you blast on Rs for being corrupt YOU MUST blast on RATS for being corrupt as least as much.
She’s pointing out the sheer hypocrisy of the RATS and their press cronies for not pointing out and harping on RAT corruption and hypocrisy.
You can do that, while still thinking and saying that what happened was wrong, and also not necessarity ultimately supporting RINO Steele.
I think so too, La. But I think there is so much going on in the “inside DC” insane power struggle asylum that we may be getting a tenth of reality.
I think Steele needs to go... but not for this.
Steele is a RINO, and for *THAT*, we need to show him the door. Trying to kick him out on some half-@ssed morality charge makes us out to be a bunch of prissy old ladies with our panties in a wad.
Until our "religious" base stops having a hissy fit every time a Republican has a minor moral failing, the Dims will continue to trot out this crap to split us.
Michael Steele may not be Reagan, but he isn't Satan either. I think Reagan probably had sex.
I’ve always had a lot of respect for Ann. Now I have even more. Instead of focusing on Michael Steele, we should be concentrating on the real adversaries. Enough of the circular firing squad on our side, already.
Steele should have been fired when the RNC backed the lib Dede last year in favor of the REAL Republican. Then the lib throws her support for the rat in the race and we lost one vote against ZeroCare.
When you don’t do the right thing - it will catch up to you at the wrong time.
RNC staffer uses committee money at sleazy bar in LA. Steele wasn't there and had nothing to do with it. Staffer is fired.
What else is there?
I agree. Why do the HuffPo’s bidding?
Love Ann. But I think she had too much caffeine before appearing on this program
“Im far less concerned about that than I am at the fact that hes a liberal who cant resist playing the race card.”
Agreed. His ‘gaffs’ are so extraordinary that I consider him a sabateur.
I’m cutting you some slack, because you have been here less than a month. Threads can be posted to either “Editorial” or “Front Page News” (among other places). They should never be posted to both.
I so totally agree!
You live long enough... strange things happen...;^)
"a massive $9,000 on hotel bills alone in just one trip to LA recently"
$9,000 is not a lot of money for hotel rooms in LA. "one trip." OK. How many days, how many rooms?
"Chartered planes." What's wrong with using chartered planes? I'm serious. Sometimes it's the most efficient and cost-effective means.
"RNC meeting in far away Hawaii." OK. Did the event have anything to do with Hawaiians?
Maybe you know all about these things already, but how do I know your list wasn't written by some I-hate-Republican-fat-cats poster at the Daily KOS? It's accusation without context.
Yes, let HuffPo et al be the racists, and we can savor the hypocrisy.
They cost more, and it's not his money to spend as he likes. The donors want their money spent on GOP candidates to beat the Democrats in November, not on private planes, when commercial flights will do.
What's wrong with commercial flights?
Look, if Micheal Steele wants to ride in private jets, he can go into private enterprise and make hundreds of millions of dollars like Mitt Romney did..Oh wait, Mitt Romney still flies by commercial jets just like anyone else.
“Did the event have anything to do with Hawaiians?”
Michael Steele, will you please go?
You can go on stilts.
You can go by fish.
You can go in a Crunk-Car if you wish.
You will need to get your tinfoil hat off buddy. There is something called posting record. Look it up.
“It's accusation without context.”
Its your garbage that is without contest. You could start off by actually doing a bit of research on Michael Steele's record and his screw-ups since he took over. They have been posted on here often enough.
“I think Reagan probably had sex.”
Do you think he had the party pay for bondage parties?
God Bless Ann Coulter. I see she has read Ronald Reagan’s 11th commandment - and she wants to win in November.
Good for her!
Neither did Michael Steele
Frankly, I don’t think Steele personally approved of whatever ridiculous charges there were...and I also think this kind of crap is to the delight of Hussein and his toadies.
Geez, guys, Hussein and the rats just passed the most fascist legislation in our nations history. This makes the New Deal look like libertarian capitalism....and we’re having a tempest in a teapot over a $2000 charge at a strip club?
We need to stay focused on the damn enemy, and it isn’t Michael Steele....it is Barack Hussein Obama.
JMO. but it ain’t humble. :)
“We need to stay focused on the damn enemy, and it isnt Michael Steele....it is Barack Hussein Obama”
Amen Brother. Let’s save this penny-ante stuff until after the elections.
Has the world gone MAD, with Palin AND Coulter supporting POS RINOs that are in bed with the domestic enemies of the country and our citizens?
She’s attacking Democrats and defending Republicans. This is what Steele should be doing.
Hell, it wasn't even a strip club.
Steele’s an ass. Playing the race card over this was the last straw for me.
Whether they tossed the individual most responsible is not my point. Michale Steele is a rump swab RINO clown in plain English.
If Steele still holds the reins on the GOP come the primaries, then conservatives and this country are toast in November. Steele will give us another John McAmnesty.
Ann Coulter should treat Steele like a leper and steer a wide path around him, as should every other conservative... unless the cause is to toss him out on his hind quarters. Then poor Michale may go whine with Democrats, which is exactly where he belongs.
Well, “buddy” since you haven’t provided more info or even a link, but you’re real ready to ride the high horse, let’s just take a pass.
He at least was helping Pubs win unlikely elections. This alone is enough to give Steele the full smear treatment.
It was a “scanty dress” club.
I had a speculation about this, that the GOP was seeing TSA types systematically foul up their politicking trips. What percentage difference is this making in the budget? I'd like to see some numbers.
This “bad mud” as Rush so correctly named it, is going to get whipped up by a new hurricane set to blow in over the country—the backlash of the American Public that is sick unto death at the mental illness we are seeing in the Democrat Party.
