Congratulations Michael Steele!

Michael Steele was elected as Chairman of the Republican National Committee today. Steele is a fantastic choice, a man of great character and conviction who can ignite a much needed spark into the Republican party.

He is a young, African-American, and a magnetic personality who will bring a much need voice to the GOP and can clearly articulate the conservative message.

Steele served as Lieutenant Governor of Maryland from 2003-2007 and has also served as the Chairman of GOPAC.

"We're going to say to friend and foe alike: 'We want you to be a part of us, we want you to with be with us.' And for those who wish to obstruct, get ready to get knocked over," Steele said.

"There is not one inch of ground that we're going to cede to anybody," he added.

"This is the dawn of a new party moving in a new direction with strength and conviction."

Steele ran for US Senate in 2006 and was subjected to one of the most vile, if not illegal Democratic campaign tactics in history. His social security number was fraudulently stolen and the Democratic operatives working under then head of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chuck Schumer illegally obtained a copy of Steele's not-so perfect credit report.

  1. What, now we go and find our own "magic Negro"?

    This is a very, very sad day for America. The election of Steele proves that the Republican party will not go in the direction they need to for the sake of our country. They can expect to be in the minority for quite some time to come.

    Are you a true conservative or just a kool aid drinker? If you are a true conservative then you would listen to what this other true conservative has to say about him.

    Steve Deace is so right about him.

    He's a RINO. On that we can be clear. This proves that the Republican Party's move to the Left might be a permanent legacy of the Bush years.
