Steele said [in an interview with Washingtonian Magazine], "I don't see stories about internal operations of the DNC that I see about this operation. Why? Is it because Michael Steele is the chairman, or is it because a black man is chairman?"On Good Morning America (article about the interview here) he said that he and Barak Obama have a 'slimmer margin of error' because of their race. It couldn't possibly be because Steele spent $17,000 on a private plane, $13,000 on limos, and that the RNC staff under his watch are so inept that they can't even put the right telephone number on a fundraising letter. And by comparing himself to Obama, for whatever reason, he squarely puts himself in the 'really needs to lose his job' category. If I didn't have my tin-foil hat firmly in place, I would suspect that there are forces that have been trying to destroy the RNC from the inside, and he's the point person.
He says that he won't step down. I say that if the conservatives want their party back, we need to fire him and the whole leadership to get the party back on track.
