Michael Steele is monumentally incompetent
Let's face it, Michael Steele was chosen to lead the RNC because he's supposedly a conservative, but mostly because he's black and might help siphon some black votes away from democrats. But, here's his clueless answer to this simple question asked by a student at his speech at DePaul U. ......
Why should an African-American vote Republican?
“You really don’t have a reason to, to be honest — we haven’t done a very good job of really giving you one. True? True.”
Are you kidding me? His assumption that blacks need to be courted and seduced to vote for conservatives is both appalling and insulting. He's operating on the democrat meme that blacks have to be given something in exchange for their votes. While this may be the case for many blacks, many others would fall more in line with conservatism if they gave it a serious look see. The conservative principles of responsibility, self-determination, personal character, low taxes, limited government, etc. should be enough to interest at least some blacks who pay taxes into taking a look at the GOP or Libertarian Party. Get that message out there and quit apologizing for the failure of blacks to choose the party that would help their community more than the democrat party.
He should be all over the country inspiring African Americans, not apologizing to them. There has to be a better RNC leader than Steele.
