CBS to Steele: What if People 'Like' ObamaCare? Is RNC too Extreme?

Subject: txt hcare msm - 2010 -

"What if, now that it's a reality and people start to see the benefits, [no bias there] they actually like it?"

Steele replied:

"David Axelrod didn't talk about the $506 billion that's being taken out of Medicare....He didn't talk about the $500 billion in new taxes that are going to be imposed on those small businesses....there's a lot in this bill that have yet to be revealed to the American people. And when it's further revealed, it'll be less – less liked."

After Steele's response, Rodriguez felt the need to incredulously criticize the RNC for being too "extreme" in its opposition:

"I looked on the RNC website this morning. I have to say, I was surprised by what I saw. The home page shows a big photograph of Nancy Pelosi and in huge block letters it says 'Fire Pelosi' ....Isn't this a little bit extreme?...What can you accomplish with this?"

Naturally, Rodriguez failed to mention the latest CBS News poll showing Nancy Pelosi only has an 11% approval rating.

Steele dismissed Rodriguez's characterization:

"Actually, I tamed it down. You know, the reality of it is I don't know why you're surprised. Nancy Pelosi is the architect of the demise, in my view, of one-sixth of our economy. She should be fired for her failure to serve the interests of the American people."

[Get it? With all that's transpired in the last month, it's the Republican actions that are 'extreme'. Of course.]
