STATEMENT FROM RNC CHAIRMAN MICHAEL STEELE ON PRESIDENT OBAMA’S ADDRESS ON THE GULF OIL SPILL

WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Michael Steele released the following statement this evening:

“Manipulating this tragic, national crisis for selfish political gain not only demonstrates President Obama’s inability to aptly lead our nation out of a disaster, but also reveals the appallingly arrogant political calculus of this White House. Exploiting the tragedy in the Gulf to try to ram through a devastating job-killing national energy tax is more of the same Chicago-style politics that has the President’s approval ratings plummeting to an all-time low. Instead of leveraging this crisis to manufacture knee-jerk political support for cap-and-trade energy taxes, President Obama should focus on providing the people of the Gulf with real and honest solutions to this horrible environmental disaster that this Administration has been slow in waking up to.” – RNC Chairman Michael Steele
