The Man of Steele

Michael Steele, Chairman of the Republican National Committee has once again found himself immersed in more controversy.

In an interview this week with CNN, Steele hinted at the possibility of running for the presidency in 2012.

Steele is quoted as saying if he decides to run for president "it'll be because that's where God wants me to be at that time".

This man was elected RNC Chairman in order to unify the party and craft a sound message that will resonate with voters. But Steele is treating this as another line on his resume, a starting point in his quest for the presidency.

As if his newly found presidential aspirations did not rattle party members enough, Steele went on to reaffirm his belief in a woman's right to choose.

He makes this distressing assertion as he prepares to attend the Right to Life Banquet in Evansville, Indiana next month. Evansville Bishop Gerald Gettelfinger has decided to boycott Steele's appearance.

Chairman Steele put his spin masters to work upon hearing this news and issued the following statement: ""I (Steele) am pro-life, always have been, always will be."

With Obama's poll numbers slipping on a daily basis and congressional approval waning as well, the RNC needs to get its house in order if it is hoping to make any gains in public opinion.
