GOP strategist Ed Rollins says Michael Steele has "failed miserably" in his responsibilities as chairman of the Republican National Committee.
Rollins took the shot at the Republican leader, who has been no stranger to controversy, on CBS' "Face the Nation" over the weekend.
"Obviously he's been a disaster," explained Rollins to host Bob Schieffer. "Michael Steele has failed miserably in the things you're supposed to do -- raise money and basically go out and articulate the message."
Despite the criticism, Rollins -- who directed Ronald Reagan's 1984 presidential campaign and once served as Chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee -- signaled he's not concerned about Steele hurting Republican chances at the polls come November.
"In 11 weeks from now, what he says or does in the next 11 weeks is not going to matter," said Rollins. "What's going to matter is Ed Gillespie, Haley Barbour, others who've picked up the mantle and are raising the resources that we need."
Via ThinkProgress comes video of the harsh remarks from Rollins.
