Michael Steele does it again, AGAIN

21 05 2009

Michael Steele now thinks that the GOP can recover lost ground by framing gay marriage as a financial problem.

“Now all of a sudden I’ve got someone who wasn’t a spouse before, that I had no responsibility for, who is now getting claimed as a spouse that I now have financial responsibility for,” Steele told Republicans at the state convention in traditionally conservative Georgia. “So how do I pay for that? Who pays for that? You just cost me money.”

Mr. Steele, for the sake of your party, you need to stop talking. Actually, scrap that. Keep talking. Please, Mr. Steele, talk loudly and frequently.

Michael Steele does it again

19 05 2009

The Republican Party finds itself the minority party in America for the first time in more than 15 years. I’ll be the first to admit it has taken some adjustment. Republicans have engaged in some healthy soul-searching since Election Day, trying to come to grips with our minority status and debating the best way forward as we point out our differences with the Democrats and chart our return to the majority.

That is why I believe America needs the Republican Party now more than ever before. We may be America’s minority party at the moment, but Republicans represent the views and concerns of a majority of Americans.

The phrase “not clear on the concept” comes to mind.
