Well good for Michael Steele for pointing out that “you people” description. We all know that if a white Republican or white conservative used that description to a black liberal, no matter what the context, that white person would have been hung out to dry.
I do question why Steele wastes his time going on MSNBC. That station has made it quite clear that they are not about objective journalism in any way shape of form. As such it viewers are mainly, if not exclusively at this point, hardcore lefties. What does Steele hope to accomplish going on there? A conversion? Doubtful.
As to the first video, rather than not answering the question, Steele should have pulled a Palin. When Matt Laurer interviewed Palin on the Letterman dust up, Laurer tried to offer up Letterman’s sorry excuse saying he meant Sarah’s other daughter. Palin fired back:
“Matt, you and anybody else are extremely naïve to believe that very convenient excuse…”
Same thinking applies here. It is naïve to believe that Harry Reid did not mean to smear Republicans as racists, sexists and so forth with his stupid comment. Steele should have made that quite clear. Stop playing the Democrats old games.
