Was Michael Steele Sincere or Just Being Political?

Michael Steele’s comments about the One choosing to wage war in Afghanistan has provoked many in the party to denounce Steele and call for his resignation.

But was Teflon Mike strategizing and playing politics, or does his statement reflect a deeper belief that America’s troops in Afghanistan are not worth the cost in lives or money and peace of mind?

The wingbats on the left think Steele was trying to make the Afghanistan war Obama’s–something that no one is questioning.  Some on the left even think that the war should be Pres. Bush’s to own, while others cite Obama’s escalation and warmongering rhetoric as proof that the war now has the One’s brand on it.  Even PBS labeled it as Obama’s War last fall.
