But, when you think of Michael “Money Mike” Steele, chairman of the Republican National Committee, the quote sadly rings all too true. Regretfully, Steele has become a phony face of diversity for a party all too comfortably willing to engage in the most hateful brand of politics now that we have a black man, Barack Obama, as president of the United States.
From the New York Daily News:
A secret GOP fundraising document urges the party to fill its coffers by playing on donors’ “fear” of Barack Obama and a pledge to “save the country from trending towards socialism,” Politico.com reports, complete with an image depicting Barack Obama as the Joker.
The strategy was presented by the RNC’s Finance Director, Rob Bickhart, and Finance Chairman, Peter Terpelk, to fundraisers at a GOP retreat in Florida, the Web site reports.
Included in the Power Point presentation is a slide titled ‘The Evil Empire’ depicting Sen. Harry Reid as Scooby Doo and Nancy Pelosi as Cruella DeVille, along with the Joker caricature of Obama.
No amount of pathetic excuse making (saying the offensive images had been on the Web, throwing a staffer under the bus, saying it was just for a small group, it was supposed to be humorous, turning himself into the victim) on the part of Money Mike is going to erase the fact that the Republicans’ game plan is to use the politics of fear and division to achieve what they deem to be “success” in future campaigns.
Steele says they will not tolerate this, but only time will tell if he is being a windbag trying to perform damage control.
In the video, he starts whining and trying to shift the debate back to health care and then turning himself to the victim over and over again.
Steele looks pathetic and like a clown defending this garbage.
Instead of answers, all Steele had to offer were excuses, issue shifting and victimization.
Democrats don’t want to get caught not looking and blindsided by the trash people apparently affiliated with the RNC are putting out.
The last thing Democrats want is to feel like Dennis Green did in the video below:
Can’t let them off the hook.
