Sundry Thoughts On Michael Steele at Howard.

steeleathoward

1. They couldn’t fill Cramton Auditorium?

2. Apparently, when Michael Steele isn’t being a buffoon talking about “bling,” and hip-hop republicanism, he is the most boring speaker in the world.

3. Shoutout to The Hilltop!

4. Why is it that protesters who are yelling in favor of health care reform are being rude and should be chastised, but those who yell against it (particularly those who are on Medicare) are merely “patriotic” Americans?

5. Steele claims that he would’ve loved it if all Howardites had voted for John McCain…but if Obama weren’t president, would the GOP really have felt the need to appoint Steele?

6. Honestly, he was doing fine (boring, but fine) until he started talking policy. And then it was the same old dishonest Republican boilerplate about the evils of a single-payer system and how health care reform will cost average Americans money — with no mention of how millions of uninsured Americans cost average Americans money.

  • …And then it was the same old dishonest Republican boilerplate about the evils of a single-payer system and how health care reform will cost average Americans money

    And continuing to spread the lie that any of the bills calls for a single-payer system.

  • Looked like one of the meeting rooms in Blackburn. One of the smaller ones. Maybe they couldn’t fill Cramton.

    You’re right about the boilerplate HC rhetoric. Still no GOP alternative plan, either.

    You’re right again; the GOP never would have hired Steele if McCain had won the election.

    It’s all so strange. If Obama hadn’t been elected, the GOP certainly wouldn’t have preemptively elected Steele as party chair, and I don’t remember hearing any Bling Buffoonery out of him when he was Maryland’s Lt. Gov.

    It’s like he’s trying too hard to please everybody, but manages to ailenate everyone in the process.

    I almost feel sorry for him. His behavior during this stint is nearly worthy of a sociology/psychology book.

  • did you happen to catch his trainwreck of an interview on NPR?

    he’s really bad at his job, and I can’t imagine people in the party are too thrilled with him.

    This guy has been trying to pander since before he was LtG. He’s a caricature at this point and it’d be funny if it weren’t so damn ridiculous. But then, I guess at least he’s representative of the party at large.

  • Yes, there’s that. Although, he didn’t say the bill was for a single-payer system, but rather that it would lead to a single-payer system. And then he went on to attack that. Which…boring.

  • [...] Jay Smooth, who tackled that travesty of a town hall Michael Steele held at HU. Jay agrees with me: Steele is boring as hell. (And that when he attempts to son the angry white lady, he’s [...]
