Michael Steele distances GOP from Arizona law, on Univision - 08/24/10

Speaking on Univision, RNC chairman Michael Steele tried to distance the GOP from the new Arizona immigration law (link, video at peekURL.com/vjoo7o3 ). In a minor way this is a good thing in that by so doing he's distancing himself from the Republican base and dragging down other GOP leaders with him. It's a bad thing because he's giving more power to the far-left, the Democrats, and other...

Jack Cashill shows yet more tea party incompetence, analyzes McClatchy tea parties-as-racists article - 04/02/10

Over at the ironically-named American Thinker, Jack Cashill offers "How Quickly Spread the Tea Party Smear" (americanthinker.com/blog/2010/04/how_quickly_spread_the_tea_par.html, linked of course by Glenn Reynolds, pajamasmedia.com/instapundit/96898). This is in line with Cashill's more famous effort: wasting peoples' time by trying to prove the unprovable, and it like that is a minor example of...

RNC's Michael Steele supports amnesty at meeting with far-left, Mexico-linked groups - 04/01/10

... days ago I posted a notice that Michael Steele of the RNC was going to meet with extremist and Mexico-linked illegal immigration supporters and urged others to contact him suggesting that he handle the meeting in the correct way [1]. Not surprisingly, Steele handled the meeting in the completely incorrect way (link): According to a news release put out by the activists [2], he said he would try...

Michael Steele, extremist and Mexico-linked illegal immigration supporters to meet March 31 (after sit-in) - 03/30/10

RNC chairman Michael Steele will be meeting with a group of far-left illegal immigration supporters on March 31, 2010; the details on who's involved and the backstory is below. Most importantly of all, please take a few moments and try to contact him, his staff, or someone who can get a message to him and suggest that he handles this meeting in the right way. Note: the only two contacts I've...

In Rich Benjamin's universe, Obama hasn't played the race card against his critics ("Whitopia") - 11/08/09

... critics. Meanwhile, GOP Chair Michael Steele scolds the President for "playing the race card." Obama has himself played the race card several times; see for instance this and this. Even worse, virtually every Obama surrogate before the election and many since has played the race card. There are too many examples to list but try this, this, and this. And, Obama has specifically played that card...

The leaders of the opposition to Obama: still incompetent, still helping him - 07/30/09

... I don't just mean those like Michael Steele or national elected officials but also the GOP consultant types such as Mark McKinnon, media figures, and major bloggers such as Glenn Reynolds. Discrediting those folks is in itself easy because how they're wrong is incredibly obvious. The problem is that they have the megaphone and you don't. None of that is impossible, but unless a lot of people...

Where's WillDo: can you spot the errors in RealClearPolitics' post? - 07/14/09

... post is misleading about what Michael Steele said. However, that's not the reason for this post. Instead, this is to point out that the third link above (to RealClearPolitics) won't be nearly as effective as it could have been, and to invite the reader to figure out the several reasons why that is. Not only did the HuffPost mislead about Steele, but so too have Josh Marshall and someone else at...

Michael Steele plays race card... on RNC? Plus, much, much more. - 05/27/09

... attached video of RNC chairman Michael Steele is a must-see. While it was edited by ThinkProgress and it may be missing key parts, the parts that are clearly in context do not make Steele look very good at all. Most significantly, he seems to be playing the race card against the RNC, if not the whole GOP. After a discussion of racism still existing, he makes a big deal about how it took six...

Clueless: Lee Fang of ThinkProgress doesn't even understand how liberals play the race card (Steele comments) - 05/27/09

... comments made by RNC chairman Michael Steele. The first set is discussed here; the second here. See both links for the context. Of the first, Fang says: ...last week, Steele employed the same "rotten" racist stereotypes to attack President Obama. ThinkProgress reported that Steele suggested that Obama won the presidency because of his race. “He was not vetted, because the press fell in love with...

Michael Steele: Obama wasn't vetted because of his race (Ali Frick /ThinkProgress, Ben Smith, Marc Ambinder) - 05/22/09

... for Bill Bennett earlier today, Michael Steele said the following: The problem that we have with this president is that we don’t know [Obama]. He was not vetted, folks. … He was not vetted, because the press fell in love with the black man running for the office. “Oh gee, wouldn’t it be neat to do that? Gee, wouldn’t it make all of our liberal guilt just go away? We can continue to ride around...

"National Council for a New America": new GOP, same old amnesty? (Jeb, McCain, Romney) - 04/29/09

... replied yet; Newt Gingrich and Michael Steele were ruled out due to heading a 527 and a party respectively. UPDATE: The full text of the letter they sent out is below. Other signatories are Cathy McMorris Rodgers, John Carter, Pete Sessions, David Dreier, Kevin McCarthy, Roy Blunt, John Cornyn (the other half of the Cornyn-Kyl amnesty), and John Thune. Rather than supporting amnesty, they've...

Michael Steele: doublespeak on immigration "reform" and amnesty - 01/30/09

Michael Steele is the new chair of the Republican National Committee (RNC). On tonight's PBS NewsHour, David Brooks said he'll probably avoid "anti-immigrant" talk, and we know what that means: Brooks thinks Steele will support illegal activity. While Steele's exact positions remain to be seen, consider the June 14, 2007 article "Secure the border first" (link). "Securing the border" is generally...

Please read this before voting - 11/07/06

If terrorists are able to infiltrate the U.S. and carry out attacks, few other issues on the table in this election will matter. Every proposal that groups of voters support - from lower taxes to universal healthcare - is predicated on the internal security of the U.S. Protecting the U.S. from attacks at home should be the first priority of all of our political leaders, but unfortunately it is...

Did Michael Steele get pelted with Oreos in 2002? - 11/15/05

From the 11/13/05 Baltimore Sun report "Ehrlich bristles at Oreo skeptics": Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. said yesterday that he is angry at "revisionism" from political opponents who question a much-repeated story about Lt. Gov. Michael S.
