Michael Steele: Harsh Criticism Is Based on Race
The Democrats just gobbled up one-sixth of the economy and two major industries in one bill but that won’t detract the democratic-media complex from reporting on what’s really important.
…Republicans went to a strip club!
Today Steels said criticism of his leadership is motivated by race.
The Hill reported:
RNC Chairman Michael Steele on Monday said harsh criticism from his opponents is motivated by race.
Steele brushed aside calls for him to resign in his first interview since news broke that the Republican National Committee (RNC) reimbursed young donors for a nearly $2,000 party at a bondage-themed nightclub in Los Angeles.
In the interview, Steele said that black political leaders, such as President Barack Obama and him, are held to an unfair higher standard.
“The honest answer is, yes,” he said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “Barack Obama has a slimmer margin. A lot of folks do.
“It’s a different role for me to play and others to play and that’s just the reality of it. But you just take that as a part of the nature of it.
“My view on politics is much more grass roots-oriented … so I tend to, you know, come at it a little bit stronger, a little bit more street-wise. That’s rubbed some feathers the wrong way.”
