    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.

    It is very disappointing indeed.

    Steve, I don’t buy into this theory that Steele is a RINO.

    And the fact that Steele isn’t an RNC member is irrelevant. He used to be on the committee, but he’s not a committeeman any more. Neither was Ken Blackwell. That point is irrelevant.

    As for him being pro-choice. He’s not – he’s pro-life. He’s repeatedly said that he believes that marriage should be between 1 man and 1 woman. Pat Robertson also supported Giuliani. I don’t think anybody is claiming that Pat Robertson is a social liberal.

    As for him being black – it was Mike Duncan’s goal to bring in more African Americans, but he never succeeded. Steele will be able to do this.

    Give me proof that Steele is a RINO.
