Michael Steele’s ego and self importance is very funny.
Steele has come under increase attack by his own side.
After implying that the Republicans are not ready to lead he tried to backtrack by stating “I mean, I didn’t ask for, I didn’t seek this job, I didn’t ask for it.”
And he followed up that lie with “I’m not defined by this job. When this job is over I will go back to doing something else. But God, I really believe, has placed me here for a reasonbecause who else and why else would you do this unless there’s something inside of you that says right now you need to be here to do this?”, during an interview on CBN.

The Republicans and FOX (aren’t they the same thing?) have the answers for increasing jobs and helping the economy.
Cut the minimum wage and eliminate unemployment benefits.
FOX is pushing the “cut the minimum wage” as a solution to the job problem even though almost every study done on the correlation between minimum wage increases and job loses shows that it has no effect and in fact increasing the minimum wage has expanded jobs in some areas.

STEELE: I won’t even dignify that with a response.
DEUTSCH: What do you mean, dignify? It’s a question, it’s a genuine question.
STEELE: Next question.
DEUTSCH: It’s a genuine question.
STEELE: Next question. Come on. I’m sorry, sir. I’m not going to sit here and say it’s an appropriate comparison to slavery.
DEUTSCH: He’s not. He’s comparing it to dramatic change, and the naysayers to change.
