    I heard Michael Steele on the radio yesterday talking about his bid to be the RNC Chair.

    He said, "Change is coming"

    :lol:

    I laughed so hard I was teary eyed and choking.

    "The Republican Party needs to reconnect with American voters, broaden its outreach to new audiences and offer solutions to the problems we face as a nation.

    The Republican Party is a coalition of interests. It needs a leader who understands those interests, can balance their concerns, can motivate people to act and can build and sustain a political organization that can once again claim victory in national elections.

    We believe that leader is Michael Steele.

    He will make being a Republican a source of pride once again."

    Draft Michael Steele for RNC Leader

    :lol:

    Oh yeah, he'll probably be running against Newt Ginghrich for the post .... Classic.

    But fact is, Steele would probably be the best thing republicans can do for themselves.

    Times .. they are a'changin'

    :lol:

    Actually.. i like Steele... but I think he is wrong on this...

    The REPs are not going to do better by watching the DEMs go farther left and then have the REPs try and become the 'Democratic Party Lite'

    Here's one thing that is undeniavle .. republicans are not going to do better by relying on the same base to win national elections .. in fact, they won't even be able to win many state elections relying on that base .. evidenced by the fact that their presence in the House has completely disappeared from the New England region.

    Ya think?

    Why it's almost like they suspect that the other 98% of the American population actually matters!

    Isn't the Republican's perjoritive term for caring about the well-being of the people in a nation demogoguery?

    Imagine giving a damn what happens to working Americans.

    Why...that's socialism, isn't it?

    I haven't read a single post here that says Steele is "bad or laughable"

    I said he was probably the best option for republicans to take .. and it isn't Steele that is so damn laughable .. it's the irony.

    There you go again. Making a statement or yours and blaming the left.


    It would be hard to tell. There aren't a lot of them.

    When asked this question, Bill O Reilly just laughed it off and made it sound like no one knew why there were no Black Senators or why Blacks are so underrepsented in the RNC.

    As I was listening to the interview I knew that if Steele had said "Yes we can" I was going to laugh myself into a coma.

    Truth is, republicans should be begging Steele to take the RNC post.
