Steele not comfortable with Rand Paulís views on civil rights
ABC ^ | 5/23/10 | Tapper

Posted on 05/23/2010 9:56:18 PM PDT by pissant

In a "This Week" interview Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele said he was not comfortable with Rand Paul's views on civil rights. Steele's comments came in a debate with DNC Chairman Tim Kaine. Anchor Jake Tapper asked Steele, “Are you comfortable with” Paul’s views?

“I’m not comfortable with a lot of things,” Steele said.

“It sounds like you’re not comfortable with it,” Tapper said.

“I just said I wasn’t comfortable with it,” Steele replied.

“I think it’s important to understand that Rand Paul has clarified his statement and reiterated his support for…pushing civil rights forward, as opposed to going backwards,” Steele said on This Week. “Any attempt to look backwards is not in the best interest of our country certainly, and certainly not in the best interest of the party,” he said.

If you weren't an affirmative action boob, Mikey, you would see in looking back that the GOP has been far better for and to blacks than the KKK Party. Unfortunately, you are unable to articualte any reasons why the party of Freedom, Lincoln, TR, Coolidge, Ike, MLK and Reagan is better than the party of Douglas, Wilson, FDR, LBJ, SHeets Byrd and phony pimp-daddy reverends.

Steele, you suck.

Isn’t that loser on his way out, anyway? Is he Linseed Grahamnesty’s slightly straighter black cousin or something?

Steele should do the principled thing, and resign in protest.

Funny how that goes, I'm not very "comfortable" with you M. Steele, all RINOS exit right.

We're fed up to here with you. IMO, you and your type are why we have BO as our president now. Go away RINO, and take your fellow RINO's with you.

Before we take the country back, we need to take back the Republican party back.

What is there to be uncomfortable with? Does he believe the individual freedom of private citizens to associate with whom they choose for whatever reason is not important? He could’ve said simply that good men can disagree over the details but that he didn’t see any evidence that Rand Paul did not or does not support civil rights. This is the kind of submissive capitulation that makes people embarassed to be associated with Republicans. If we are just going to forever give up ground to the oponents of liberty and cede debate on identity politics and politically correct crap for the sake of appearing tollerate than we’ve lost already because even if we succeed in rolling back some of the big giverment programs we will be still enslaved to their crazy social justice ideas which will be used as they are now to remove our freedoms and constrain us to narrow leftist perspectives.
