Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele
If there was ever any doubt the Republican Party continues to move further and further away from that area of ground most of us know as "reality", this must be it.
Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele expressed an unusual interpretation of the relationship between Barack Obama and the war in Afghanistan at a Connecticut fundraiser Thursday.I may not be an expert on the complex situation in Afghanistan, but I seem to recall the US invaded that country in 2001, seven years before Obama was President.
"This was a war of Obama's choosing," Michael Steele said at the event. "This is not something the United States has actively prosecuted or wanted to engage in."
Steele also accused Obama of "demonizing Iraq while saying the battle really should be in Afghanistan."
"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, alright, because everyone who's tried over a thousand years of history has failed," Steele continued.
Or is that just what the Socialists want me to think? And maybe the Kenyan tyrant is responsible for Iraq too. And for the financial meltdown.
In fact, could Comrade Obama be the evil mastermind behind the global warming conspiracy?
Michael Steele deserves recognition for his efforts. He is the new Imperator Fish Fool of the Moment.
