Paging Keith Olbermann: Michael Steele is biting on your "Special Comment" style

In his first response as GOP Chairman to President Barack Obama's weekly radio address, Michael "Mike Tyson is my ex-brother-in-law" Steele bites on Keith Olbermann's "Special Comment" style by pivoting from camera to camera at :41 and 1:46.

Additionally, while anyone should be against wasteful spending in the stimulus package it should be pointed out that whenever the GOP and their mouthpieces (the stellar Elisabeth Hasselbeck for one) complain about some of the spending they are not acknowledging the jobs this spending will create. Steele ridicules spending $45 million for ATV trails and removal of fish passage barriers, but he doesn't acknowledge that American workers will build those trails and remove those barriers, and most likely use American suppliers.

The GOP keeps pushing tax cuts as the solution, however they don't acknowledge that people without jobs won't have taxes to cut.
