If you've been following the storyline of Michael Steele has he attempts to become the first Republican of African Descent since reconstruction, you might find this article by JC Watts one good read. Here is the article in excerpts.
It seems that some Democrat Party leaders in the great state of Maryland, still foaming at the mouth to bring shame upon the candidacy of a black Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, are aiming more outrageous charges at Michael Steele.
This time, they are trying to wrap Hurricane Katrina around Steele's neck, by linking him to the Bush administration's hurricane response in an attempt to weaken his appeal to black voters.
The absurdity of trying to link the Katrina response to Steele defies any sense of reason. I think anyone who can fog a mirror has already acknowledged that all levels of government were lacking in their response. Steele has done so publicly, and on more than one occasion.
Certainly, if Democrats want to go after Steele for the perceived or real missteps on the part of the Republican administration, wouldn't it be fair to wrap Louisiana governor Kathleen Blanco and New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin and their feeble disaster management around Maryland's Democrat nominee? Come on, people, let's get serious.
It is ironic indeed that these same people, whose policies have failed to get people like those displaced in New Orleans out of the cycle of poverty pre-Katrina, are now the very ones squawking when others don't rescue them from poverty post-Katrina.
As I have said often, these poor people shouldn't have been in that level of poverty, given the amount of dollars our government has spent since the Johnson administration in anti-poverty programs.
Democrats fear Michael Steele because he can appeal to more constituencies than just White Anglo Saxon Protestant Republicans. They have vowed to do or say anything they can to keep this man from being the fourth black U.S. senator in the last 100 years.
