Michael Steele (pictured with Florida RLC Vice Chairman Steve Smith) is in trouble.
This time he criticized a never-ending undeclared war, saying (correctly) that it is not a war the American people are interested in supporting. He further stated that the war doesn’t make much sense.
Chairman of the Republican National Committee Michael Steele is correct on these points. Predictably, neo-conservative pundit William Kristol and Congressman Tom Cole (primary opponent of RLC-endorsed candidate RJ Harris) have called for Chairman Steele to resign.
Congressman Ron Paul, Adviser to the Republican Liberty Caucus, put out a statement in support of Steele’s comments.
Here is Congressman Paul’s speech on the House floor from last week in opposition to the continued U.S. presence in Afghanistan:
The question remains: When will this unsustainable, undeclared war end?
In the interim, congratulations to Chairman Michael Steele for questioning the Bush/Obama policy of endless foreign interventionism.
