    Very true, justabubba. But I can't get past the fact that this dolt takes his talking points from The Princess Bride. I mean, come on!

    Oh, and this?

    Actually, that's the only thing he was correct about: you don't engage a land war in afghanistan. Period. No one has ever been successful in doing so. Princess Bride, aside from being a trite and petty forced comparison, has nothing to do with what Steele said.

    Steele was wrong on almost every other count and he had to know it. I know he's an idiot but I can't fathom that he is actually that big an idiot.

    if we withdraw our troops, then Obama is painted by the reich wing as a president unwilling to defend the citizens of the USA from terrorist aggression
    if we continue dubya bin lyin's war in the middle east, then they try to re-write history to make the loss of our youth and treasure due to Obama rather than it being one of the many messes he inherited from a dysfunctional republican regime

    Idiotic partisan hack speech meant to deflect from the fact that the poster is chattering a lot but saying very little.

    Yeah, that's what I thought.

    I was going to say the same thing. It's the one thing RNC Chairmain Steele got right in his idiotic commentary. He was 100% wrong on every other point....completely wrong!

    I mean, did the War on Terror (in Afghanistan) start January 20, 2009?

    Did the U.S. not engage in a war in Iraq while already fully engaged in the aforementioned war while G. W. Bush was in President?

    Just what sort of BS was Steele trying to sell to his listening audience?

    More important, WTH was he smoking? I want some!!

    What is even worse than him saying it is that some will believe it!

    He should resign or the GOP should remove him. It is stunning how he fails to recall that the U.S. went to war in Afghanistan in 2001 after the Al Qaeda terrorist attacks and the Taliban's refusing to hand over the Al Qaeda leadership. Raising questions about the current strategy or current policy is one thing. Misrepresenting history is quite another.

    Not to worry Don... the GOP has an election to win in November, not actually say anything of value
