Steele (R) - 'Obama Pursued Afghan War Trying to be Cute' And 'we Should Not be Fighting a Land War in Afghanistan'

RNC chair Steele stepped in it big time with a rather incoherent statement ... again. Any chance this time it will actually result in anything?

Video embedded below.

"Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele was caught on video at a fundraiser in Connecticut on Thursday raising doubts about the war in Afghanistan.
"Keep in mind again, federal candidates, this was a war of Obama's choosing. This was not something that the United States had actively prosecuted or wanted to engage in," he said. "But it was the president who was trying to be cute by half by building a script demonizing Iraq, while saying the battle really should be in Afghanistan. Well, if he is such a student of history, has he not understood that you know that's the one thing you don't do, is engage in a land war in Afghanistan?"
