Michael Steele’s Problem “Isn’t the Race Card, It’s the Credit Card”

By Jorge Rivas Apr 06, 2010

Chairman of the Republican National Committee Michael Steele is in the news again. Last month he was making headlines for spending almost $2,000 of RNC money at an erotic, bondage-themed strip club in California. And just when you thought the news was dying down, he’s making the rounds once again. The Hill reports:

Steele started the back-and-forth early Monday morning, in an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “The honest answer is, yes,” Steele said in response to a question about whether he has a slimmer margin for error than past GOP chairmen because of his race. “Barack Obama has a slimmer margin. A lot of folks do,” Steele said. … White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs called Steele’s remark “silly.” “I think Michael Steele’s problem isn’t the race card, it’s the credit card,” Gibbs added.
