The Republicans deservedly got their asses kicked in 2006 and 2008. And then, they elected Michael Steele to head the RNC…
With the Dems going full speed ahead with their slash and burn policies against taxpayers and Capitalism, it would seem that a Republican takeover of the Legislative branch is a potential reality in 2010. However, Michael Steele, rather than showing leadership, opted to use words like “incendiary” and “ugly” when discussing Rush Limbaugh on a recent CNN program, further alienating many more conservatives.
I’m not a total dittohead; in fact. I disagree with Rush 100% in his view of 2 of the Big 3 automakers deserving a bailout, as well as on several other issues. However, he at least has core conservative values, which is more than could be said for many Republicans in the limelight, be they politicians, presidential candidates, or RNC chairmen.
Michael Steele started out with his new beginning-type spiel, but it looks like it will be more RINOism.
That changeover to the Libertarian party is getting closer to reality for me, and very well could cause even MORE conservatives to abandon the Republicans. And the way things look now, that isn’t a bad thing….
