Will you please step down?
This has got to be the worst leadership of the party in years, and I certainly don’t say this because you are black, Mr. Steele.
I could care less about the level of melanin in your skin.
I care, in politics – are you ready for this? about POLITICS.
I don’t agree with the slack jawed, nanny baby way that you and some of the leadership like Mitch McConnell have pursued things, allowing votes to come to the floor easily, for example, when one person objecting could make the progressive socialists work for it.
I don’t agree with the party backing people in a party line, especially when their views don’t generally agree with the party planks that we have been walking on for years and years.
If I hadn’t already been alienated from the Republican Party for many things, this would have torn it. It isn’t bad enough that we have managed to elect or put up 5 RINO’s in a row. Bush I, Dole, Bush II, Bush II and McCain. If it hadn’t have been for weak Gore and Kerry, we probably would have had 20 years of progressive socialists in the White House. We were damn close with a lot of Bush II’s policies.
You do take note that all of those people I criticized were white, wealthy men?
What made you slip over into the Garafolo mindset to give them more ammunition on the left at a time in this country when we need conservative leadership more than ever?
Why in the world would you fall into that trap set for you – unless it is something that you have wanted to get off your chest?
Do you really feel that there are people, like myself, who disagree with you not because you are more moderate, but because you happen to be a little darker than me?
I couldn’t care less – and quite frankly, you are the bigot for pointing fingers at white people and projecting what must be in your heart of hearts on us just simply because you are in charge of an organization that has lost a great deal of respect from your conservative base BECAUSE of your IDEALS and the people and ideas you present to the American people as being Republican.
When you start embracing the smaller government, no more pork, less spending, less taxing, returning power to the state and local levels where it BELONGS and attacking people on the left for their tremendous attacks on the foundations of America, you’ll see the conservative movement and tea party movement come right back into the fold.
To play the race card shows that you know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT THE PEOPLE YOU CLAIM TO REPRESENT.
This is the party of Lincoln and Emancipation. This is the party that gave this country the Civil Rights that the left wanted to prevent and embraced the KKK to try and stop. This is the party of freedom, liberty, success on your OWN TWO FEET and you want to sit there and PLAY THE RACE CARD because you are having a rough time due to getting away from the people in your party and what they are crying out for?
Step down sir. You need to walk away now. You are becoming those that you declare yourself in opposition to and you want to blame the “whiteys” of America?
I truly backed you when you first took over and backed you through some tough times. I loved you talking about “You have the numbers – bring it to the table…..”
I just lost most of my respect for you and what you mouth that you believe in if this is the level of respect you have for the people you claim to represent and our ideals.
That is not my ideal. You succeed because of you – not because of your skin color in this country anymore sir. And for you to point the finger and decry me and mine as a person who hampers you or resists you due to color is an insult to who I am and what I believe in.
Please step down if you really do care about the party and it’s ideals. You went way over the top this time.
