Also says "This was a war of Obama's choosing," Michael Steele said at the event. "This is not something the United States has actively prosecuted or wanted to engage in."

Yeah we wanted to be attacked on 9/11 so we can go to war...dumbass

Bill Kristol and others have asked him to resign LMAO Dumbass
Dear Michael,
You are, I know, a patriot. So I ask you to consider, over this July 4 weekend, doing an act of service for the country you love: Resign as chairman of the Republican party.

Your tenure has of course been marked by gaffes and embarrassments, but I for one have never paid much attention to them, and have never thought they would matter much to the success of the causes and principles we share. But now you have said, about the war in Afghanistan, speaking as RNC chairman at an RNC event, "Keep in mind again, federal candidates, this was a war of Obama's choosing. This was not something that the United States had actively prosecuted or wanted to engage in." And, "if [Obama] is such a student of history, has he not understood that you know that's the one thing you don't do, is engage in a land war in Afghanistan?"

Needless to say, the war in Afghanistan was not "a war of Obama’s choosing." It has been prosecuted by the United States under Presidents Bush and Obama. Republicans have consistently supported the effort. Indeed, as the DNC Communications Director (of all people) has said, your statement "puts [you] at odds with about 100 percent of the Republican Party."

And not on a trivial matter. At a time when Gen. Petraeus has just taken over command, when Republicans in Congress are pushing for a clean war funding resolution, when Republicans around the country are doing their best to rally their fellow citizens behind the mission, your comment is more than an embarrassment. It’s an affront, both to the honor of the Republican party and to the commitment of the soldiers fighting to accomplish the mission they’ve been asked to take on by our elected leaders.

There are, of course, those who think we should pull out of Afghanistan, and they’re certainly entitled to make their case. But one of them shouldn't be the chairman of the Republican party.
Sincerely yours,
William Kristol

He is an idiot and should have been removed long ago, this is just another example of what an idiot and a failure he is.

He can take the rest of the rino's with him when he goes.

So...

That would leave us with what? 3 or 4 senators and maybe a dozen congressmen?

And that marks the final degree the S.S. Rhetoric needed to complete her 180 turning maneuver.

Steele is a ****ing moran. It is the same stupidity as when Reid had said we'd lost the Iraqi conflict. Stupid idiots speaking with stupid partisan mouthpieces.

He is but of the NeoCon kind. Notice who's attacking Steele the hardest? Yup! Those guys. Even Liz Cheny. They're so afraid of the truth replacing their Noble Lies because it could put a damper on their frantic efforts for our next war on Iran. Notice Steele is one of the least hostile to Ron Paul, who's been gaining influence. Cripes the hubris is astounding! Not even Alexander the Great could take Afghanistan.

McCain on This Week today: He'll have to make a choice about whether or not he can continue to lead the Republican party. (paraphrased)

I think maybe that's code for he's out.
