Monday on MSNBC's “Ronan Farrow Daily,” former Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele attacked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) for in his view “playing political football” with the humanitarian crisis of thousands of illegal immigrant children flooding across the U.S. Mexico border.

Hey, Michael Steele...

When you use the language of the left (humanitarian crisis) you might as well be one of them....

Call it what it is... A giant PR stunt for the Uniparty...

This is very disappointing. I had hoped better from Michael Steel.

Mr. Steele needs to go back in his closet.

The border needs to be enforced at bayonet point.

Even Priebus understands the political problem of immigration for incumbent GOP.

Cruz is on the right path when attacked by the progressive wing of the GOP.

Yes, but Michael Steel is a black republican, so we are all obligated to blindly follow him.

Really? He’s on msnbc all the time. I don’t hope for anything good from him. He’s a fraud.

Steele - if we CARED what you thought, you'd still be chairman!

The one CREATING this 'humanitarian crisis' for 'political reasons' is Obama. Why aren't you attacking him?

Oh, yeah....he's a bro.

_____________________________________________
Michael Steele is another Colin Powell. Both represent the current Republican party. They are more comfortable embracing liberal notions while trivializing sound conservative, common sense principles. Take for example Steele’s reference to controlling the border wherein he chides conservatives with the cheap shot “we get that.” In other words, no time to control the border now we have to deal with the humanitarian crisis, which, of course, is a deliberate result of failing to control the border in the first place. Let’s just kick that can down the road for another day, which has the effect of promoting or fostering yet another border crises.

I remember a whole week back when Steele acted like a conservative for .003 seconds - I see things are back to normal.

Obama’s policies have created a crisis. What’s political in saying the emperor has no clothes.

Tis is one reason he is the “former” chairman. We are setting on the border with as many as 1500 people crossing at McAllen per day. It is beyond ‘playing politics’ but doing something!

Hey MIKE!

We’re under no obligation to hand Obama a victory in his exploitation of children.

True compassion would be to motivate the home countries to stop the oppression and develop their economies.

We can not move the poor of the world here, and then use them as pawns in vote buying schemes, to maintain political power and control.

I liked Michael Steele at one time, but he's clearly gone off his gourd. Why do some Republicans attack other Republicans more than they attack the Democrats?

This assault on our southern border was launched by Barack Obama for political reasons, ie create a permanent Democrat majority by importing permanent Democrat voters. Obama need illegal infiltrator voters to do the voting that Americans von't do. This is part of the fundamental transformation of American, make our elections even more meaningless than thay are now.

So the proper response to this political action necessarily includes politics. The pubby morons step in to do the job of the revolutionary Democrats and only attack other Republicans. This moronic from several points of view: 1. history, 2. analysis and 3. politics. Moron or traitor, what difference does it make?

Immediately after this fraud was elected as RNC Chair in a panicky reaction to Obama’s election I wrote that he was an affirmative action fraud. I called for him to step down or be dragged out of his office kicking and screaming if necessary. I guess I had this p o s pegged right from day one.

Well, tonight's results showed us that Thad Cochran and Hailey Barbour do. They convinced enough Mississippi blacks to cross over for the bare bones win. DISGUSTING!
