Daily Show Exclusive: Michael Steele on RNC Treatment of Ron Paul - "Height of Rudeness and Stupidity"Submitted by jcpenicks on Fri, 08/31/2012 - 12:34
"What the Republican National Committee did to Ron Paul was the height of rudeness and stupidity for this reason: Why would you alienate an individual who has the ability to attract a new generation of voters, who are already skeptical of your institution but are willing to at least listen through the vehicle of this individual and the words that he is saying? Why would you alienate them, get on the floor and not let them speak? Not have his name go up on the board and see the number of electoral votes that he receives? This is crazy! ... They are afraid of that which they cannot control."

fiodax: I stopped Mr Steele while in Tampa this week. We talked for about 10 minutes and he seemed genuinely interested. As I told our story about the Oklahoma delegation his assistant actually began to cry. I'm glad to see that he is speaking out about it. Good for him!
paul-for-liberty: Let Michael know he's got our support... We may not agree with all of Michael's views, but ANYONE who goes against the mainstream and threatens his or her reputation on BEHALF of our liberty movement, NEEDS TO BE THANKED and shown support, to encourage similar behavior out of them in the future.
