Michael Steele went on MSNBC’s Hardball today and called out certain members in his Republican party. The segment Steele was discussing had to do with the so-called Republican outreach or lack thereof, and the “bad behavior” by some elected members of the party when it comes to baseless, fact-less nonsense being spewed about President Obama and other minorities.
The moderator of the show pointed out some of the things elected Republicans have said about the President and he played a recording showing Rep. Blake Farenthold from Texas, who said that the original congress should have looked into President Obama’s birth and whether he was in fact an American citizen. He then turn to Steele, telling him that when elected Republican continue this baseless talking point, it reflects badly on the entire party. And then asked Steele what should be done to save the party.
Steele answered that comments like the ones from Farenthold should be dismissed by the leaders of the party. He also acknowledged that those comments draw the party down and “stereotypes the party into a very small casam of the idiot class who can’t figure out that America is changing and how to adopt to this change and become a part of it as opposed to resisting it.”
Well said Steele, well said. With views like this, we see now why they kicked you out from heading the RNC.
