Steele: Americans don’t trust the GOP because we were ‘getting high’ ‘drinking that Potomac River
water.’

http://thinkprogress.org/2009/05/02/steele-moderates-go... /

Yesterday, RNC Chairman Michael Steele spoke to his party faithful in LaCrosse, WI. Steele tried to claim that moderates were welcome to his “big table” party, but said that in order to join him for dinner, they had to first silence their own opinions and agree with him and other far-right Republicans:

2. What's so weird about Steele is that I SAW him at the
Black American State of the Union conference that Tavis Smiley moderated.

He was cordial and smart as anything and spoke very well and sounded like SOME OTHER PERSON.

It's just GOBSMACKING.

For the life of me, I can't reconcile this guy that sounds like an ignorant hack to the man I watched speaking at that forum. :crazy:

3. They really can't get used to being out of power!

Steele, as most republicans, talks out both sides of his mouth. The problem is Republican's bought their own BS. After years of paying lip service and using 1984 speak, I.E. Patriot Act, No Child Left Behind, etc, they believe all they have to do is say it, and everyone will listen. The American electorate has woken up, and that genie can not be put back into the bottle. Until they stop being the party of no, their numbers will continue to shrink.

4. Here's the video link to the BSOTU with Steele. You tell me if this man

5. It makes a little more sense when quoted in full
"The problem isn't that Americans are less conservative," he said. "It's that our credibility with them is shot. It's that we left them along the side of the road on our way to drinking that Potomac River water, getting high on power and influence and forgetting how we got where we are."

7. He sounds like my mom when she's been toking too much of the Jesus crack.

And she's certifiably nuts! I hope he continues to run his mouth, eventually causing a giant sinkhole to open up and swallow the 'pubs in the process.
