Former RNC Chairman Officially Endorses Biden in Op-Ed

Staff Sgt. Marianique Santos / Public domain

Former RNC Chairman and member of the anti-Trump Lincoln project has officially endorsed Joe Biden for president.

The move proves that access to power and riches Trump value loyalty — always.

According to The Daily Wire:

“I am an American, a conservative, and a Republican, in that order,” Steele wrote in an op-ed for NBC News. “And I am voting for Joe Biden on Nov. 3.”

“Over the last 150 years, the Republican Party, at its best, built on the legacy of its founders, and championed freedom not only throughout our country but around the world,” Steele wrote, appealing to the legacy of Abraham Lincoln. “In my lifetime, my party insisted upon not just ending, but winning, the Cold War and toppling murderous regimes that denied basic freedoms to their oppressed people. Republicans also were the lead advocates for market-based economic systems that reduced the rate of extreme poverty globally from over 35 percent in 1990 to less than 10 percent in 2017 — an astonishing but largely overlooked achievement that benefited hundreds of millions.”

By contrast, Steele argued, Trump cares only about promoting himself. “Rather than binding up the nation’s wounds, Trump exacerbates division. Rather than standing up to the world’s dictators, Trump cravenly seeks the favor of thugs. Rather than fostering free enterprise, Trump embraces economic principles not only outdated in Lincoln’s time but made even worse today by a leader who lost close to a billion dollars in a single year running a casino. Rather than seeking to build on the legacy of the Republican Party’s founders, of which Trump is surely ignorant, Trump has posited a single purpose for the GOP — the celebration of him.”

Conceding that many of the issues Trump pinpointed are legitimate grievances, such as sneering coastal elites, education disparity, and impeded economic mobility, Steele maintained that such things should be addressed “responsibly” and not “demagogically.”

Stelle also tweeted out an ad he did for the Lincoln Project:

Steele stated that he disagrees with Biden on policy but hopes he will help the country heal with policies he vehemently opposes. This is the logic of the unhinged anti-Trump “right.”

Mr Steele is not about healing this nation. He is about being on the side of more power. Think of how much could have been accomplished if the President had the cooperation of all government parties. Who is really to blame for all the dissention Mr Steele is not a leader. He is a follower. Sad. Very disappointing

Think of all the good which could have been accomplished had the Dems not obstructed everything that he tried to do and wasted time with ridiculous political nonsense. If not for China and its virus, the US would be continuing to have unsurpassed prosperity, employment and opportunity for all. That is a fact. It’s OK to disagree with other politicos but the hatred and vitriol directed at Trump and Republicans is astounding. Dems have nothing positive to add, only destruction and hatred.

The RNC has no mandate to actively and effectively promote a recent ‘convert’ to the Republican party. The Democrats are happy, enough, with their ‘leadership’. There are now millions and millions of lifelong registered Republicans who hate Trump’s guts. And so many people who have never voted love him. Only in America. It is what makes America great.

Michael Steele needed to wait until he could get confirmation that Biden was dirty with his dealings in Ukraine and China before he could put his official stamp of approval on Biden for President. Now that he knows for sure Biden is dirty he feels much more comfortable supporting someone that supposedly has the opposite view of government than he does, right?

Was Michael Steele a supporter of socialism when he was head of the RNC? How does that happen that someone goes from the head of one party to supporting the candidate of the other party? Michael Steele wants to support Constitutional norms so he is supporting a candidate that may pack the Supreme Court, add two new states for political advantage and ran a sham impeachment process, oh and supports the candidate that was involved in trying to undermine the current President during the transition from one administration to another! That is what Michael Steele stands for, wow! Steele is the epitome of a deep state loving Republican, happy to lose as long as he gets a seat to watch all the action, now he is clearly a LOSER!
