Steele: The Media Didn’t Vet Obama — Because He’s Black

While guest-hosting Bill Bennett’s radio show today, RNC Chairman Michael Steele complained that President Obama was never thoroughly vetted by the media — especially on the matter of his ideology and his connections to Jeremiah Wright — because the media wanted the black candidate to win:

“He was not vetted, because the press fell in love with the black man running for the office,” said Steele. “Oh gee, wouldn’t it be neat to do that? Gee, wouldn’t it make all of our liberal guilt just go away? We can continue to ride around in our limousines and feel so lucky to live in an America with a black president.”
