Based on the title of the thread...no click. Try again.
Voted yes ,did not see fire his stupid azz
But, let's see how he responds to this whirlwind of chattering calls for resignation.
I second that opinion.
click on the excerpt link.
“I don’t want him to resign, because I’ve read positive comments that Governor Palin has made about him.”
Oh, don’t tell me that. Does she have to be stung by each and every scorpion individually before she understands that this particular scorpion stings?
Or is she simply unable or unwilling to see that some people are irredemable scumbags?
Typical bogus poll.
Do you think he should resign for*this*reason?
No, I think he should resign for a thousand other reasons that came up in the past.
56% say yes
Steele is qualified to be Vice President (witness Biden). But he is not qualified to be Director of the Republican Party. But unfortunately he has to resign. The Republicans cannot afford the criticism of picking on a black guy. Sad but true.
You and I both, FRiend. I didn't vote at all for two reasons. First, there is no “H*** YES!” option, and second because I don't care to register to post comments explaining why I want him gone.
something like this:
No amnesty, no more illegal aliens. If they really want to become Americans, they can go home, and do the proper paperwork to become legal immigrants. He appears to have forgotten what “republican” means. Lowercase ‘r” was no typo. I am a republican, not a Republican. I vote issues and people, not party. He has lost my confidence, and I want him GONE!
Call me crazy but, I can see (maybe) what Steele was saying. The war in Afghanistan is now obama’s war, being conducted in a manner of obama’s choosing. (ie. very badly, the ROE are insane)
Curious if Palin agrees with his sentiments on guns? He should be fired for that alone!
Steele on guns: “Society should draw lines. What do you need an assault weapon for, if you’re going hunting? That’s overkill.”
Hint to Steele.....the 2A is NOT about hunting. Effing moron.
I suspect that they probably have a person in mind to replace Steele who despises Governor Palin.
“Republicans cannot afford the criticism of picking on a black guy.”
I don’t believe that at all. Steele is a RINO and a jerk. Just who would complain if he got tossed? (That probably won’t happen because he doesn’t have that long to go and isn’t worth the trouble.) But Republicans have to stop with the P.C. garbage.
Black and white Democrats would paint getting rid of the idiot as racist. So what? Who is going to believe that?
Ken Blackwell would be a good pick, IMHO, but I wouldn’t be surprised if another RINO takes over. Mitt Romney comes to mind.
Steel’s choice of words and presentation are unfortunate but I believe the idea he was trying to express is valid.
He was trying to tie Obama to his campaign rhetoric asserting that Dubya was pursuing the wrong war and that he (Obama) would move resources from Iraq to Afghanistan and pursue the war there to a successful conclusion.
Now Obama is taking a defeatist posture while trying to straddle the fence between his campaign rhetoric and the demands of his leftist anti-war base.
So Steele wanted to tie Obama to the war on the strength of his own words, boxing him in and making his 2011 withdrawal promise very difficult to uphold.
The problem is that Steele (once again) got his mouth in gear while his brain was still napping.
That said, I think it is long past the time Steele was replaced. There are just so many reasons why he is not the man we need in that position right now.
No. If it’s not worth explaining in the post, it’s not worth clicking the excerpt. It’s that simple.
Yes-56% No-29% Don't know-12% Other-3%
Total votes: 31,511
I have never seen any reason to change my mind on Steele. I supported him and sent him money when he ran for Senate, but he has been a big disappointment as RNC Chair.
I think Fox has MSNBC/CNN pollsters counting the votes. LOL
