Steele: 'Questions are being asked' about Obama response to oil spill

To answer the question raised earlier today, here's how Republicans can thread the needle on criticizing the response to the gulf coast oil spill -- by going after the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee for fundraising off outrage against oil companies. The statement from RNC Chairman Michael Steele:

It is unconscionable that Democrats would seek to exploit for crass political fundraising a tragedy that killed 11 Americans and threatens to become the worst environmental disaster in American history. At a time when questions are being asked about the White House’s initial response to the incident, the Democrats’ political machine has gotten far out ahead of basic human decency. Since these funds would go to candidates President Obama has campaigned for, it is incumbent on the President to condemn these practices in the strongest possible terms.

My emphasis. Who's asking the questions? By suggesting that, isn't it Steele?
