    More like the RNC is starting to recognize that Steele is a bubblehead.

    America's problems are evenly divided between the entire Democrat Party and the "leadership" of the Republican Party.

    Michael Steele continues to prove over and over again that his talents were better suited to commenting on the political process rather than actually playing a part in crafting them. Nothing like lowering expectations to get out the vote effort in 2010!!, and people wonder why it took more than one ballot to elect the man as head of the RNC?

    I have to agree with ya Navy... a lot of people had a lot more hopes about Steele... but much like many baseball prospects, he has just never really panned out

    For the newb... As for America being dumb... they fell for the Obama charade... shows how dumb a voting populous can be

    Michael Steele, was, by modern conservative standards, a RINO when he got the job, which I pointed out to cons at the time. His attempt to reinvent himself Sarah Palin style hasn't worked out.
    He is now just dazed and confused.

    Why in the world did he get picked RNC head anyways. I thought the guy from SC was going to win the Chairmanship.

    It would seem that if Mr. Steele wanted to build the party and make it a "big tent party" rather than foster the divisions between those moderates in the party and hard line consevatives, he would look to find common grounds on which all Republicans can form a basis of agreement on and work from that point. It appears that Mr. Steele has spent more time making members of his own party seem not wanted than he has focused on growing the party and including those that just want to be heard and have a platform in which to do it. While not many on here will accuse me of being a liberal there is one thing I think the DNC does very well and that is allowing for members of it's party to be heard, thier problem is when it comes election time , they tend to eat thier young ( no offense) once they have selected a candidate to rally around, which is not a bad thing so much. as opposed to my own party with it's current leadership that has fostered this environment of letting people in the party seperate into opposing camps rather than agree on bedrock principles.
