Steele Blames Afghan War on Obama, Drawing Calls to Resign

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele on Friday declared his opposition to the Afghanistan war, saying the nine-year-old conflict was of President "Obama's choosing," and that the mission is "probably a lost cause" – prompting at least one prominent Republican to call for his resignation.

"This was a war of Obama's choosing," Steele said. "This is not something United States had actively prosecuted or wanted to engage in."

The war in Afghanistan began shortly after the September 11, 2001, terror attacks, in the first year of President George W. Bush's first term. Obama, at the time, was a state senator in Illinois.

Steele needs to resign immediately. Criticize the way Obama is handling the war....fine. But criticizing the war itself is way off base.

Steele needs to "hip hop" his way out the freaking door.
