Well...

  • He's relatively moderate (pro-choice, anti-war), and that a no-no.
  • He told Rush Limbaugh to go fuq himself.
  • He wanted to induce diversity in the GOP with a "hip-hop makeover".

I like Michael Steele. For the most part, I think his political commentary is balanced and fair, even when I don't agree with him.

Mike Steele is a Jack Kemp republican--got a lot of black demo votes when he ran in MD.

HE WAS THE LIEUTENANT GOVENOR OF MARYLAND WHEN I LAST LIVED THERE.  HE WAS A REASONABLE MAN WHO WOULD NOT BOW DOWN TO THE INCREASINGLY RADICAL RIGHT WING OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.  I DID NOT ALWAYS AGREE WITH EVERYTHING HE SAID BUT HE WAS A REASONABLE MAN WHO WAS HONEST.  HIS BEING RUN OUT OF THE PARTY FOR WANTING TO ENGAGE, BARGIN AND WHEN NECESSARY COMPROMISE IN A HEAVILY DEMOCRATIC STATE IS ONE REASON WHY THE CURRENT GOP HAS ABSOLUTELY NO FUTURE IN OUR NATION.

FAN,

In that case, you probably also remember that it was a Black Dem "uprising" caused by the Dem Gov Candidate (Kennedy-Townsend) NOT naming a Black Lt. Gov and selecting a Repub instead - retired Admiral, I believe.

In response, the Repub Gov candidate named Steele as his running mate.

Many Black Dems, led by the the Mitchell's of Baltimore, pulled their support for the Dem ticket and Mike Tyson's former brother-in-law (Steele) became a national figure.

Maryland Black Dems refused to be taken for granted.
