I think people are seizing Steele’s comments to float exactly that strategy and see how it plays for the GOP more broadly.
I also think that it’s not just a gaffe— this is a view that is more widespread than we’d like to admit, and very soon I think it will be the dominant GOP view.

They appear to have lost all their prior smarts about messaging. I fully expect the wingnuts to tag Afghanistan as “Obama’s War”, and have complete amnesia. They’re reacting at about the level of rats in a skinner experiment. They think “War was bad for Bush eventually in 2008, so it will be bad for Obama in 2012, right?”

That’s about the extent of republican ‘strategery’ at the moment.

I’m not so sure, Ice. I do think that if they do that, it will mark a break in the party. That’s a road a good part of the party won’t walk down, People of that part of the party need to remind the rest of the GOP that the party will lose part of its base by choosing isolationism.
