Olbermann: GOP Chair Steele's Gay Marriage Position 'Laughable'

Olbermann_steele

Keith Olbermann attacks GOP Chair Michael Steele's ridiculous argument that casting same-sex marriage as the enemy of small business would help the Republican Party. Over the weekend, the AP reported:

"Steele said that was just an example of how the party can retool its message to appeal to young voters and minorities without sacrificing core conservative principles. Steele said he used the argument weeks ago while chatting on a flight with a college student who described herself as fiscally conservative but socially liberal on issues like gay marriage. 'Now all of a sudden I've got someone who wasn't a spouse before, that I had no responsibility for, who is now getting claimed as a spouse that I now have financial responsibility for,' Steele told Republicans at the state convention in traditionally conservative Georgia. 'So how do I pay for that? Who pays for that? You just cost me money.'''

RNC Chair Michael Steele Blasts Maine Marriage Equality Decision

Writes Steele in a statement:

Steele "Our party platform articulates our opposition to gay marriage and civil unions, positions shared by many Americans. I believe that marriage should be between one man and one woman and strongly disagree with Maine’s decision to legalize gay marriage."

The Plum Line notes that Steele's statement "puts him at odds with Maine’s moderate Senators, Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins, both said today the decision should be left to the states."

Strange, in GQ in March, Steele said the issue should be left to the states. He must have received an abusive phone call from Rush Limbaugh.

RNC Chair Michael Steele: Rush Limbaugh War was 'Strategic'

In an interview with CNN's Don Lemon, RNC Chair Michael Steele says his prolonged feud with Rush Limbaugh was part of a "strategic" master plan.

Steele Says Steele: "If I do something there's a reason for it. It may look like a mistake, a gaffe. There's a rationale behind it."

He says the rationale behind his Rush Limbaugh plan was that he wanted to "see what the landscape looks like, see who yells the loudest. I want to know who says they're with me , but really isn't...It helps me understand my position on the chess board. It helps me understand you know, where the enemy camp is and where those who inside the tent are."

His master plan doesn't extend to his future political aspirations, apparently. Because he also says he's never thought of running for president, and if he does, it's because it's God's plan, not his.

I wonder what his "strategies" are behind his views on gays and abortion?
