Michael Steele Acknowledges He Gets Less Slack Because He’s Black

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele was asked on Good Morning America if he and President Obama have a “slimmer margin of error” because they’re black. Steele responded in the affirmative.

“The honest answer is, ‘yes,'” he said on “Good Morning America” today. “Barack Obama has a slimmer margin. A lot of folks do. It’s a different role for me to play and others to play and that’s just the reality of it. But you take that as part of the nature of it.”

“My view on politics is much more grassroots oriented, it’s not old boy network oriented, so I tend to, you know, come at it a little bit stronger, a little bit more street-wise, if you will. That’s rubbed some feathers the wrong way,” Steele told “GMA’s” George Stephanopoulos.
