McCain: Steeles Comments Wildly Inaccurate - Washington Wire - WSJ
McCain, speaking from Kabul where he was visiting American troops over the July 4th holiday, said he had received an email from Steele in which the party chairman insisted his remarks were “misconstrued.” But McCain, a staunch supporter of the Afghan war effort, seemed not to accept the explanation.
“I think those statements are wildly inaccurate and there is no excuse for them,” McCain said.
South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, another leading Republican war supporter on the Armed Services Committee, also lambasted Steele, saying he was “dismayed, angry, upset” about the Republican chairman’s remarks.
Graham, in Kabul on the same trip as McCain, called on the Republican Party to support Obama in his war effort, even if it occasionally criticizes the way the war is being prosecuted.
Let us hope that Steele and Breitbart remain the tiny minority on this issue…
