Michael Steele pulls a Biden

The chairman of the Republican National Party, Michael Steele, has pulled another Biden:

This was a war of Obama's choosing. This is not -- this is not something that the United States had actively prosecuted or wanted to engage in. Well, if he's such a student of history, has he not understood that, you know, that's the one thing you don't do is engage in a land war in Afghanistan, all right, because everyone who's tried over a thousand years of history has failed.

That was Steele expressing his view of the war in Afghanistan at an RNC fundraiser.

It's just the latest example of Steele's ineptitude as leader of the Republicans.

Remember how they paid off the travel claims for the guys who went to the lesbian stripper club in Vegas?

Remember how Steele was pouring all those donations into his own perks, like the chauffered limo and private jets?

Does Steele remember so little about 9.11, the Taliban, and Al Quaeda in Afghanistan that he really believes that this is "Obama's War"?

If Steele really believes that, then why are our Republican CongressClowns not hollering for immediate withdrawal from Afghanistan?

Is this the official viewpoint of the Republican Party? Is it kind of like the official position of the Otero County Republican Party, which believes that if the Democrats remain in power we will have no more elections?

Is this really the best the Republican Party has to offer the nation?

Why is Rand Paul defending this nonsense?
