[Monday] on Laura Ingraham's radio program, RNC Chairman Michael Steele responded to recent criticisms that he was rooting for America to lose its 2016 Olympics bid. Although both Steele and Ingraham had ferociously cheered for President Obama to fail in his bid to grant Chicago the Olympics, Steele scoffed at those critical of his cynicism as "so typical Washington inside poop."
Ingraham then pressed Steele about a Politico report that GOP leaders had delivered him a "heated message" to stop meddling in Republican policy proposals:
INGRAHAM: GOP leaders to Steele: back off. GOP leaders in a private meeting last month delivered a blunt and at times heated message to the RNC Chairman Michael Steele and they said essentially quit meddling in policy. [...]
STEELE: No I'm not going rogue and that's a factual inaccuracy, I did consult with Senator McConnell and Congressman Boehner [...] Again that is typical Washington stuff, trying to create a tempest in a teapot. [...] The one thing I've always stated from day one is I don't do policy, I do politics. [...]
INGRAHAM: Were you told to stop meddling in policy?
STEELE: No I wasn't told to stop meddling in politics. A certain one or two senators wanted to know what that was all about. [...] There’s some staffers who clearly have a bug up their you know what. That's their problem.
