Steele: Obama Elected Because He Was Black

By  | 

I didn’t think Steele could get any hackier, but yet again he proves me wrong.

Roll tape!



And here’s the transcript…

STEELE: The problem that we have with this president is that we don’t know [Obama]. He was not vetted, folks. … He was not vetted, because the press fell in love with the black man running for the office. “Oh gee, wouldn’t it be neat to do that? Gee, wouldn’t it make all of our liberal guilt just go away? We can continue to ride around in our limousines and feel so lucky to live in an America with a black president.” Okay that’s wonderful, great scenario, nice backdrop. But what does he stand for? What does he believe? … So we don’t know. We just don’t know.

I mean, seriously? Seriously???

I’m sorry folks, but if after THE LONGEST PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD you don’t think Obama was fully vetted or you don’t know where he’s coming from, well, you weren’t paying attention.

But hey, maybe this is part of the “hip-hop makeover” Steele has been promising for the GOP.
