Quote of the day

posted at 10:30 pm on March 11, 2009 by Allahpundit

Do you think homosexuality is a choice?
Oh, no. I don’t think I’ve ever really subscribed to that view, that you can turn it on and off like a water tap. Um, you know, I think that there’s a whole lot that goes into the makeup of an individual that, uh, you just can’t simply say, oh, like, “Tomorrow morning I’m gonna stop being gay.” It’s like saying, “Tomorrow morning I’m gonna stop being black.”

So your feeling would be that people are born one way or another.
I mean, I think that’s the prevailing view at this point, and I know that there’s some out there who think that you can absolutely make that choice. And maybe some people have. I don’t know, I can’t say. Until we can give a definitive answer one way or the other, I think we should respect that.

*
Explain that.
The choice issue cuts two ways. You can choose life, or you can choose abortion. You know, my mother chose life. So, you know, I think the power of the argument of choice boils down to stating a case for one or the other.

Are you saying you think women have the right to choose abortion?
Yeah. I mean, again, I think that’s an individual choice.

You do?
Yeah. Absolutely.

Are you saying you don’t want to overturn Roe v. Wade?
I think Roe v. Wade—as a legal matter, Roe v. Wade was a wrongly decided matter.

Okay, but if you overturn Roe v. Wade, how do women have the choice you just said they should have?
The states should make that choice. That’s what the choice is. The individual choice rests in the states. Let them decide.

*
So, Rush Limbaugh—good or bad for you guys?
Rush is a friend. I like Rush. Rush is a bomb-thrower extraordinaire. And we need him. We need him because what he does is, he stimulates debate. And I know it drives a lot of folks on the left loony. But so does Al Franken for us. Okay? So don’t give me, “Rush is a bad guy, we need to offset him.” You already have. You got Al Franken, for goodness sakes.

Tman on March 11, 2009 at 10:37 PM

Let me get this straight. He just compared homosexuals to a race. The following argument would be to recognize homosexuals like we recognize race I guess. Then he argues that pro-choice is alright, falling back to a legal argument (which is true, but I think weaker) rather than the fundamental debate of life being sacred. Then he concedes that Rush is a bad guy by allowing that Al Franken helps offset his “badness.” What the hell?

The states should make that choice. That’s what the choice is. The individual choice rests in the states individual.

sven10077 on March 11, 2009 at 10:39 PM

Steele does keep putting his foot in his mouth. Pro-lifers will never accept the states rights or Constitutional arguments. They’ve been trained to recognize red flags where there are none. If you mention the right to life, they start arguing about 12 YOs raped by their stepfathers and coat hangers.

I’m sorry, but this guy is a hot mess.

Darth Executor on March 11, 2009 at 10:40 PM

i don’t kow kind of makes sense. except for the abortion angle. Murder is murder to me but it would be better to let the states decide. Why should i tell someone in NY what to do? As far as being gay. I could care less. If you want to be butt boys with someone else more power to you but I have the right not be have it shoved in my face.

I think he got Rush pretty right. We could do without the “bomb-throwing” line but he is correct that Rush is a person that stimulates debate.

And at the end of the day if you believe in individual freedom than you have to allow the individual to make their own choices as far as homosexuality. I think REPs would be better off fighting the militant wing of the gays. The mainstreaming. I mean you can disapprove of it without lynching them.

The abortion thing. I am 100% against it but I think honestly the best we will ever hope to get is make it a state issue.

I don’t know, but I find nothing wrong with the interview. I think he realized his mistake at the end of the abortion comments. But he came around.

jcheney on March 11, 2009 at 10:46 PM

Steele really has to go as chairman, but I have no problem with his abortion position. Roe v. Wade is a woefully incorrect and idiotically “supported” decision that should be overturned and the states get to decide about abortion. As to whether anyone is pro-abortion or anti-abortion, that is a state-level position that has little to do with national policy. If someone wants to ban abortion, federally, then Huckabee has the correct approach – a Constitutional amendment.

progressoverpeace on March 11, 2009 at 10:46 PM

Whoa. I think I can articulate conservative principles better than this guy.

Some think that abortion is murder. Some think that this is not a single individual’s choice (they would argue that there are at least 2 people involved). How would you argue to them that it’s a private matter?

Upstater85 on March 11, 2009 at 10:47 PM

RINO! Kick his lame stupid butt out and get a real leader.

AubieJon on March 11, 2009 at 10:47 PM

He is obviously pro-choice, he fumbled the question badly. If he can’t even articulate his own views, I don’t know how he can present the views of the party as a whole. Enough. Better dump him now while there is plenty of time for 2010.

echosyst on March 11, 2009 at 10:48 PM

I am upset with Steel about the “nazi” interview, but must say that I think he did a splendid job with this one.

Roe v. Wade was a terrible decision. But that simply means that morality questions are up to the states.

Many of us out here abhor Roe v. Wade. We would be loathe to vote for abortion restrictions. But we would warmly encourage those we love not to have an abortion.

If that’s too complicated for you, then too bad for you.

What’s wrong with letting gay people be gay? I, personally, believe that homosexuality is a mental trait and cannot be stopped, although I was seething over all of those horrible things those gay people did in CA in protest of Prop 8 (which was democratically voted on, mind you). I’m surprised JetBoy is not out here.

Steele has made some mistakes lately, but doggoneit, I still like him. He needs to be more careful that he doesn’t step in it, again.

The “Pack Rat” comment did hurt a bit…..

That’s just great. And this is the guy that’s representing the socially conservative side.

It’s funny how so many “gay people” end up in prison. I mean, obviously, there’s no choice involved so the fact that they have people in prison jumping all over each other means they were obviously born that way. I say we need to restructure our justice system from discriminating so much against gays.

Amendment V

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

It is also in the Declaration of Independence.

Yes, this is a matter that should be left to the individual states; however, this doesn’t somehow make abortion A OK. New York State should have the power and authority to tax its citizens more than other states do, but this doesn’t mean that it is wise or somehow ethical.

Look up Dennis Jernigan.

Saying homosexuality cannot be “stopped” is like saying alcoholism cannot be “stopped.” Any former alcoholic, just like any former homosexual, will tell you the struggle continues, but you won’t say a former alcoholic is still one if he has temptation(unless it’s bush). I personally know people who have given up the “gay lifestyle” (ooo, there’s that term!) For me to deny what they’ve accomplished by their own choice just to fit into your political and world view is shameful.

The silliest thing about all of this is that homosexuality is in no way a new thing. It’s been around since the beginning. It went underground when judeo-Christian values spread throughout Europe, etc. It was still there, just like every other sin.

What IS new is homosexual marriage.

TTheoLogan on March 11, 2009 at 10:55 PM

Key disappointing paragraph

Why do you think so few nonwhite Americans support the Republican Party right now?
’Cause we have offered them nothing! And the impression we’ve created is that we don’t give a damn about them or we just outright don’t like them. And that’s not a healthy thing for a political party. I think the way we’ve talked about immigration, the way we’ve talked about some of the issues that are important to African-Americans, like affirmative action… I mean, you know, having an absolute holier-than-thou attitude about something that’s important to a particular community doesn’t engender confidence in your leadership by that community—or consideration of you for office or other things—because you’ve already given off the vibe that you don’t care. What I’m trying to do now is to say we do give a damn.

From now on you must call me a female Transylvanian-American and beware of not “offering me something”. Otherwise, no vote from here. No ways!!!

I lived in Maryland during the “DC Snipers” routine and Steele criticized Chief Moose precisely “zero” times for his neo-luddite anti-gun rhetoric. People have forgotten that when Moose’s heart was broken that the perps were black suddenly his focus for interdiction became the gun….ie “we got the gun!”…..

Steele was the head of the Maryland Republican Party at the time and Moose was trying his best to make the entire incident about the need for a new AWB…

so yeah Blackwell would have gone berzerk on an Ohio CoP who tried the same games….

The other thing about steele’s comments about homosexuality being genetic… doesn’t it concern anyone that there’s never been any proof for that, it’s simply the case that it’s easier to believe it happens that way?

They had a gay gene story years ago that was debunked. Not to mention, behavioural characteristics are determined by multiple genes, and identical twins would have to always, ALWAYS share the same sexual orientation, which they do not.

Steele Likens Republican Critics to “Scurrying Mice”
Cal Thomas quotes RNC Chairman Michael Steele ripping into his Republican critics while explaining “he is in stage two of a two-stage process to reform and transform the Republican Party.”

Said Steele: “The mice who are scurrying about the Hill are upset because they no longer have access to the cheese, so they don’t know what’s going on.”

John Aravosis: “Sounds like stage two of a two-stage process to get himself fired… The man seems to have a political death wish. We’ll see if he survives this one.”

Entelechy on March 11, 2009 at 11:01 PM

Disappointing, but I don’t need a moral leader heading the GOP. I’m pretty sure our last one was pro-life and anti-gay marriage. We need one that can win elections. A pro-lifer that can’t organize worth a damn does us little good.

I happen to be Pro-Life. I was opposed to the passing of Roe v Wade. My point was, the government should not be concerned with decisions of individuals when it comes to abortion, regardless of whether the mother chooses to have one or not have one.

It’s the business and choice of the mother. It is not, nor should have it ever been, the business of our government.

Should have made my position clearer. I’m just sick and tired of the government meddling in our private lives. I can do just fine without any help from them.

The other thing about steele’s comments about homosexuality being genetic… doesn’t it concern anyone that there’s never been any proof for that, it’s simply the case that it’s easier to believe it happens that way?

Oh course it is possible for people with sexual disorders to be born that way. There is nothing unscientific about it.

Mr. Steele is about to find that the rat often meets the trap at the end of stage 2….

I had a sense of humor for him right up to “Showtime with DL Hughley!”

In other news, zombies are a fact of life because science has not yet proven otherwise.

Disappointing, but I don’t need a moral leader heading the GOP. I’m pretty sure our last one was pro-life and anti-gay marriage. We need one that can win elections. A pro-lifer that can’t organize worth a damn does us little good.

amerpundit on March 11, 2009 at 11:02 PM

Maybe Steele’s election-fu is so awesome he will win national elections with precisely 3 members for the 4th floor’s staff….

then again “maybe not”….

Can we please stop knifing each other. That is exactly what the liberals want us to do. Their stimulus bill failed the market confidence test. Their TARP Two promise failed the market confidence test. Their mortgage proposal failed the confidence test and they can’t seem to find any honorable democrats clean enough to staff the government; so of course their talking heads are desparate to change the subject. Don’t let them. Hammer them on their incompetence and stick to the script. (Also mention that their stimulus bill and budget do many things that discourage a recovery.)

Of course homosexuality is a choice: top or bottom.

Jim Treacher on March 11, 2009 at 11:07 PM

How does a guy go from being such a charismatic character when running to such a bumbling, incompetent when elected?

That question is appropriate for Steele… and Obama.
