Michael S. Steele

From dKosopedia

Michael S. Steele is the former Republican Lt. Gov. of Maryland. He ran for U.S. Senate in 2006, but lost to Ben Cardin, see Maryland U.S. Senate election, 2006.


Ruling Class Support, Yes Please

Former President George H.W. Bush and wife Barbara Bush are scheduled to hold a fundraiser for Steele on May 19, 2006. The reception at a private home in Chevy Chase has 72 members on the host committee. Guests will pay up to $4,200 for the privilege of attending. U.S. Representative Oren Shur and Democratic Senate candidate criticised the event: "Given Michael Steele's support for . . . the entire Bush agenda, it's no surprise that the entire Bush family is helping to funnel cash to Steele's campaign."

But No George W. Bush Visits Please

Current President George W. Bush is not being invited to help Steele in his 2005 campaign. "It's an impediment. It's a hurdle I have to overcome," said Steele of Bush's failed Presidency in a July 24th interview with reporters from the Washignton Post and other newspapers. He also whined that, "I've got an 'R' here, a scarlet letter." Source: Liz Sidoti. July 25, 2006.

Rhetorical Extremist/Factual Relativist

Steele was forced to apologize after comparing stem cell research to Nazi atrocities. On October 25, 2006, his spokesperson complained that his opponent's (Democrat Ben Cardin) television spot featuring Michael J. Fox talking about politicians who oppose embryonic stem-cell research made for his opponent, "was in extremely poor taste." Source: Jonathan Alter. "Progress or Not: Michael J. Fox’s Political Ads Supporting Stem-Cell Research Are Not Only in Good Taste, They’re Vital to the Public Discourse." Newsweek. October 25, 2006. Text
