RNC Chair Michael Steele rips the War in Afghanistan

The Neo-Cons are up in arms! 

Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol on Friday called for Michael Steele to resign after the Republican National Committee chairman said the United States should not be in a “land war in Afghanistan,” according to Politico.com
“But now you have said, about the war in Afghanistan, speaking as RNC chairman at an RNC event, ‘Keep in mind again, federal candidates, this was a war of Obama’s choosing. This was not something that the United States had actively prosecuted or wanted to engage in.’ And ‘if [Obama] is 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?’”
Well congratulations to Steele on finally saying something that was somewhat right.  Of course we all know that the War in Afghanistan was in fact started by Republican President George W. Bush, and President Obama has essentially picked up the baton and continued to mire us in a war that appears to be unwinnable.
My guess is he won’t be RNC Chairman for long…
