CNN gives us the context:
On September 15, after the Senate voted to defund the community organizing group, Steele released a statement accusing ACORN of “nefarious activities,” saying it uses “illegal means to achieve its ends.” A few days later, on September 24, Steele called for congressional Democrats to investigate the “corrupt organization” and said damage control efforts by ACORN officials were “insulting.”
But during a speaking appearance in the days between issuing those two statements, Steele had kind words for ACORN and its CEO, Bertha Wilson, who happened to be guiding that so-called damage control. (Emphasis mine)
Here’s Steele today, saying doctors have no credibility…on health care reform!
“The AMA is — does not have the credibility on this healthcare issue, as they would like to project,” Steele said on “Fox and Friends” Monday morning.
Steele was trying to downplay the significance of the AMA’s support for the House healthcare bill(s), but the timing of the chairman’s remarks was a little awkward. The RNC held a conference call this morning touting the support of former AMA President Donald Palmisano. (Emphasis mine)
Ladies and gentlemen, the reputed leader of the Republican Party!
