In each of those interviews, Steele compared himself to Barack Obama. There are voluminous differences between Michael Steele and Barack Obama One of them is that Barack Obama never talks about his race. He buried that issue with his famous race speech in Philadelphia.
Michael Steele has received an infinitesimal fraction of the criticism leveled at Barack Obama since each of them took office in January of 2009. And yet only Steele has attempted to blame his bad press on the racism of his critics.
Steele’s comment this week was so awful that it not only made him look bad, but it managed to make White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs look good. Asked about Steele’s words, Gibbs delivered the best line of his tenure: “I think Michael Steele’s problem isn’t the race card, it’s the credit card.”
When Robert Gibbs destroys a line of argument you’ve built up throughout multiple interviews conducted over the course of more than a year by delivering a pithy one-liner, your credibility has been nullified. It’s time to stop making that argument.

Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
