Michael Steele is an Idiot – Possibly a bigger Idiot than Bush!

Yup!! Those Republicans..! They put their noodles together and “himmed and hawed” for a while and decided once again to elect “The Smart One” to be the Chairman of the RNC. It wasn’t bad enough that they wheeled out an ancient fossil like John McCain to be their Presidential nominee, but when the fossilized-dust has settled, they decided once again to vote for the dimmest bulb in the chandelier factory: Michael Steele.

To quote the Templar Knight in “Indiana Jones; The Last Crusade“: “They chose poorly.”

michael-steeleYou can click on the “Duh!” to watch the video in exchange of my own personal play-by-play… My buddy Sam Stein at the Huffington Post has the transcript:

STEELE: You’ve got to look at what’s going to create sustainable jobs. What this administration is talking about is making work. It is creating work.

STEPHANOPOULOS: But that’s a job.

Leave it to the Republican Media to give the guy a helping hand… “Work” is indeed, a freaking “Job”.

STEELE: No, it’s not a job. A job is something that — that a business owner creates. It’s going to be long term. What he’s creating…

STEPHANOPOULOS: So a job doesn’t count if it’s a government job?

Okay, I’m popping pop-corn – who’s got the Diet Coke?

STEELE: Hold on. No, let me — let me — let me finish. That is a contract. It ends at a certain point, George. You know that. These road projects that we’re talking about have an end point.

As a small-business owner, I’m looking to grow my business, expand my business. I want to reach further. I want to be international. I want to be national. It’s a whole different perspective on how you create a job versus how you create work. And I’m — either way, the bottom line is…

STEPHANOPOULOS: I guess I don’t really understand that distinction.

HA! Stephanopoulos doesn’t understand the distinction – as well as anybody else! (Including Steele, apparently.)

STEELE: Well, the difference — the distinction is this. If a government — if you’ve got a government contract that is a fixed period of time, it goes away. The work may go away. That’s — there’s no guarantee that that — that there’s going to be more work when you’re done in that job.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Yes, but we’ve seen millions and millions of jobs going away in the private sector just in the last year.

Here’s when you start up the Twilight Zone theme song when the Republican “Brain-Child” responds with:

STEELE: Well, the difference — the distinction is this. If a government — if you’ve got a government contract that is a fixed period of time, it goes away. The work may go away. That’s — there’s no guarantee that that — that there’s going to be more work when you’re done in that job.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Yes, but we’ve seen millions and millions of jobs going away in the private sector just in the last year.

It’s Republican Speak: Call up Rush Limbaugh and beg him to tell you when you should open your mouth and tell you want to say. Before Michael Steele shoves his foot in his mouth and says “Gooney Goo-Goo“.

FruitFlyQuick! Somebody tell RNC Chair Michael Steele that America has seen millions of “work disappear”  These are “work” that business owners have created and it’s “work” that’s reached an end-point!!  It isn’t government “work” that’s disappeared – it’s private sector “work”!!!

How long will Conservative Liberal Media paddle around these Conservative Clowns before they realize that the rest of America has turned them off too?

That’s Incredible! – And my name isn’t Fran Tarkenton!

  1. You liberals just don’t get it, never have a valid point.

    I am hardly alone as a hard core conservative – I am – when I say that I am beyond outraged by Steele’s inherent “Bo Jangles” shuck & jive self. The man’s an idiot and it incenses me that the RNC (who do not represent myself and most other conservatives) allow this worthless putz to head up the RNC. As long as Steele is around the RNC is doomed.
    That still does not dismiss the fact that today’s liberal has tragically become a stooge for Totalitarian Statists.

  2. Poor dumb conservative, if the election does not go your way it’s “totalitarian” huh? The fact that you use this argument about a centrist like Obama means you watch way to much Fox news. Way to make stupid generalizations!

  3. The point Michael Steele was trying to make here is entirely valid (i.e. “make-work” jobs that temporarily boost job stats. are poor substitutes for the more long-term jobs they’re purported to replace) … he’s just utterly failing to explain it coherently. There are plenty of other better reasons to illustrate why Michael Steele is an idiot.

  4. This is an argument of semantics. Steele should have phrased it better than trying to make a distrinction between work and a job. If you have a job, obviously you have work, so if you have work doesn’t that mean you have a job? Yes, I would agree with the liberals that he is poorly defining his words. The important thing to realize though is that he is correct within the context he is comparing it to. The government is not creating sustainable “jobs.” It is not creating anything that is long-term or self-sustainable, it merely has a big check that it needs to spend and when the money is gone so are the “jobs.” These jobs are not going to support families, but rather they are just meant to help boost Obama’s numbers. Scam!
