What's the matter with this Michael Steel....why can't he call a spade a spade....?
He's a RINO, just like mclame. Making him the chairman of the RNC was just another huge screw up by the republicans in a long list of them.
He shouldn't say anything he dosen't believe to be true.. Unlike obamalama I want a leader who isn't pressured into doing something he dosen't want to do.. We Republicans don't do that! We have morals.

I thought that "socialist" wasn't working as a pejorative for the SmearNet members.
Wasn't Strong enough Negative connotations to that word.
They switched over to "Fascist".
What's next, when that wears down and is dull, useless as a weapon ? Communist ?
Doo Doo Head ?
All noise, no substance.
He's not a RINO persay, he's a northern Republican and simply has some common views with those post-Christians.
Let me first say, that I don't give a tremendous amount of credence to polls, but I do think they can help spot trends.
Rasmussen Reports released their results of a nation wide telephone survey conducted on April 6-7, 2009. Their report finds that only 53% of Americans say capitalism is better than socialism. 20% said socialism and 27% were undecided. That should totally shock everyone, but let's pretend that it didn't. The truly scary and shocking results come when we look at the breakdown of who is undecided and who is supporting socialism over capitalism.
Adults under the age of 30 responded with 37% choosing capitalism, 33% choosing socialism, and 30% undecided. SCARY TREND FOR THE FUTURE OF AMERICA RIGHT THERE!!!
Adults in their 30's have stronger capitalist support rallying with 49% support and only 26% who favored socialism.
Adults 40 yrs and older vastly favored capitalism. Only 13% of that demographic favored socialism.
I fear for the future because the younger generation (my generation) has been brainwashed by Marxist teachers, professors, and television personalities into thinking socialism is better than capitalism. I remember being told in high school by a number of teachers that nationalized health care was better than 'American' health care, where 'we deny people proper medical treatment because they are poor.'
We no longer say the Pledge of Allegiance in our schools. I doubt if most school children even know the Pledge. I remember teachers trying to make us feel bad for how 'greedy' and 'selfish' America is. It's like they were trying to make us feel contempt for our own country. I resisted, of course, and challenged them on every statement (often to the detriment of my grades). This is a sickening trend that will have long lasting and extremely destructive consequences.
Let's look at the party affiliation breakdown on this survey. Republicans supported capitalism 11 to 1 over socialism. 39% of democrats favor capitalism while an astounding 30% of democrats prefer socialism. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? THIS IS THE PARTY RUNNING OUR GOVERNMENT RIGHT NOW? Those not affiliated with either party chose capitalism 48% with socialism getting 28%.
As the poll notes, they did not offer any definition of capitalism of socialism. And the report states that an earlier survey showed that 70% of American's prefer a free market economy. The report does not say when the earlier survey was conducted nor does it give the actual questions asked.
On a side note, Gallup just released their findings on a nation wide telephone poll that shows "71% [of American's] have a great deal or a fair amount of confidence in President Obama to do or recommend the right thing for the economy." I won't elaborate on my personal conclusions about what the two polls indicate concerning the scary push to socialism in the United States. I will say that I think these polls are very telling, and help explain why so many are embracing the policies of the current administration and the democrat Congress. Years of the educational and media revolution are starting to really pay huge dividends for the extremist left.
The DNC didn't even have to smear this guy into oblivion. He did it all himself with his goofy comments. From day 1.
He's like a lot of today's Republicans in Washington. They're beside themselves since Obama won and the Dems took congress over.
Let him label Obama a socialist... It's a really tired personal attack and people are getting desensitized to this stuff. It would be better if he just did his job and produced some wins for Repubs instead but oh well.
Calling THIS kleptocracy socialism makes about as much sense as calling it a turnip.
If it makes you feel better you can call it whatever you want.
But until you really understand what it is?
You're nothing but a tool.
If s/he's nothing but a tool, what's that make you; nothing but an instrument? I know, I know, you'd rather be an instrument than a tool.
