Same Old Same Old Under Steele
February 1, 2009
Looks like the choice of Michael Steele as RNC chairman doesn’t signal any significant change in the GOP platform. They’re going to stick with their tried and true game plan that brought them such successes in the the 2006 and 2008 elections:
“Steele did little to distance himself from the issues that defined the GOP’s poor showing in recent elections. He put forward Gov. Sarah Palin’s name — among others — as the future of Republican leadership. And on immigration, he pledged ‘no change in the position on the party…’
‘The GOP position is secure our borders first,’ he added. ‘Let us know and let us make sure the American people know that we’ve taken care of the important business of dealing with the illegal immigration into this country.’
Steele also restated his support for a constitutional ban on gay marriage, and applauded the united GOP front to the stimulus bill currently making its way through Congress. He brushed off concerns that the party would look like obstructionists if not one member supported the president’s plan.
‘The Republican Congress did a great job in drawing the line,’ he said. ‘I hope the Senate will follow.'”
These people just aren’t serious.
