I regret supporting him in the Chairman’s race. I tend to be a supporter of the establishment. But after reading his comments on the war in Afghanistan and President Obama in The Daily Caller today, I am appalled. He must resign.
Via The DC: “This was a war of Obama’s choosing,” Steele said of the war in Afghanistan, which just concluded its deadliest month since the 2001 invasion. “This is not something the United States has actively prosecuted or wanted to engage in.”
The Republican establishment leaders at the NRCC, NRSC and RGA, as well as Congressional leaders like John Boehner and Eric Cantor must circle the wagons and pressure Steele to resign.
The terror attacks on September 11, 2001 were real. They happened. Then-President George W. Bush led our nation through the darkness. Agree or disagree with the rest of his politics, President Obama is prosecuting the war in Afghanistan. With General Petraeus’ arrival in Kabul earlier today, what our nation needs is unity of purpose.
Michael Steele must go. His gross insensitivity to victims of terrorism, our Armed Forces, and their families necessitates only one act. Resignation.
