(Newser) – The neocons who wanted Michael Steele to quit as RNC chief can forget it. "Every time something happens, people say, 'He should step down,'" Steele said in Colorado today. "The reality is that's not happening, so stop the noise on that. You don't need the distraction. We're focused on winning."

Elaborating on Afghanistan, Steele declared himself "four square, one thousand percent with our troops on the ground," reports CNN. "My goodness, do not leave these young men and women without the resources they need," he added. "This war on terrorism was brought to our shores and we must fight it. We will fight it and we will win it. Because that is what the resolve of the American people is on this."
