Steele Calls GOP Platform "One Of The Best" Political Documents In 25 Years, "Honest Injun On That"
Steele Calls GOP Platform "One Of The Best" Political Documents In 25 Years, "Honest Injun On That"
by Matt Finkelstein

On Fox News last night, Sean Hannity hosted RNC Chairman Michael Steele to promote the release of Steele's new book, Right Now: A 12-Step Program for Defeating the Obama Agenda. During the interview, Steele emphatically denied that the GOP needs "more modern" ideas, calling the party's platform "one of the best political documents" produced in the last quarter-century. "Honest Injun on that," he added.

HANNITY: There are those that are saying for the Republican Party to be successful, they've gotta quote be more modern.

STEELE: No, no! But that's what's gotten us into trouble, when we walked away from principle. Our platform is one of the best political documents that's been written in the last 25 years. Honest Injun on that.

5. When did the GOP ever walk with principles?
Was it when Reagan doubled the national debt? Was it when Reagan said the service economy was better than the manufacturing base? Was it when the GOP decided that idiots like Paris Hilton and Tiger Woods needed to pay less in taxes? The GOP is a f*cked up mess.

Or was it when the GOP spent the last 50 years saying Democrats stabbed America in the back? You know, just before the GOP failed to protect us on 9/11 and got us into nonsense wars while allowing the terrorists to escape? The GOP that did in fact stab America in the back by allowing China to take our jobs! When ever was the GOP in the right path?

19. The GOP never got that Obama the person won the presidency, not Obama the black man
Answering with just another nutjob just because of the color of his skin isn't doing them any good. It's the person we elected, not the race.
