RNC chair: Media didn't vet Obama because of race.

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele said Friday that President Obama has not been vetted thanks to a complicit media that wanted to see a black man become president. Serving as a guest host for conservative radio personality Bill Bennett, Steele, who is also African-American, said Obama’s political philosophy and principles remain largely unknown.

“He was not vetted, folks,” Steele said. “He was not vetted because the press fell in love with the black man running for the office. ” ‘Oh, gee, wouldn’t it be neat to do that?
