Ron Paul has endorsed Michael Steele’s remarks on Afghanistan:

Washington (CNN) – Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, is praising Michael Steele for suggesting last week the war in Afghanistan is unwinnable, a statement that prompted some influential GOP voices to call on him to step down as chairman of the Republican National Committee.

“Michael Steele should not resign,” Paul said in a statement sent to CNN. “Smart policies make smart politics. He is guiding the party in the right direction and we are on the verge of victory this fall. Chairman Steele should not back off. He is giving the country, especially young people, hope as he speaks truth about this war.”

Except, Steele has stepped back from his original comments in which he also charged that Afghanistan “was a war of Obama’s choosing.”
