Michael Steele wants Sarah Palin to reorient" the party and grow it. Interesting

I seem to recall Sarah Palin going up against entrenched corporate-type Republicans from big oil, is this what Michael Steele is now calling on Sarah Palin to do within the party structure -- empower grassroot-Republicans over the corporate wing of the party -- actually support the party's political platform rather than the corporate wing's political agenda? History has shown us the corporate wing of the party doesn't really care about lowering taxes, individual liberty or reducing government. What they want is someone who can rightfully pick up that banner in the peoples' eyes, while they pursue business as usual behind the scenes.
I agree with Mr. Steele, the Republican Party badly needs to be reorientated, from the ground up. But before Sarah Palin picks up the GOP banner, she had better make sure she actual has the power to "re-orientate" the party. If she doesn't, it will be she who is "reorientated.
She can start by getting rid of Steele and all of the other RINOs.
Is he volunteering to resign and endorse an Asian as head of the RNC?
I love the people of the Orient this would be so much more diverse than a token Black.
STEELE: “Mrs. Palin, the Republican Party have lost their conservative way and we want you to lead the Party. You can fire anyone you want and I will 100% agree to it. Which of these RINO’s should we get rid of first..MCCain, Snowe, Collins?”
PALIN: “You’re fired.”
Sorry, I was trying to lighten my day up a bit.
I’m listening, Mike!
Try to work within the party first.
Yes, I agree. One of the actions I think might be helpful is to have the RNC vote Gov. Palin in as Chairwoman of the RNC. In this capacity she could then speak for the party itself.
Is this action like Lucy and the football with Charlie Brown?
How many times have we been treated that way?
That said, 3rd parties seldom succeed.
I think she should stay outside. She will have her hands tied taking any position in the RNC, just as her hands were tied being governor of AK.
Let her support and campaign for those that she trusts and share her values. It will be a good litmus test as to who we should funnel donations to.
The three parties?
Socialist DemocRAT Party
The NEW BULL MOOSE PARTY
The next President and within another 4 years the majority party in Congress
Thanks for the chuckle!
I think many of you are missing the fact that Steele even referred to Sarah Palin at all. As head of the RNC he is supposed to be neutral. Having said that, Steele must have some inside info of the impact that Sarah is going to make in the lower 48 when she arrives and since this is in the wake of the Washington Times story that Sarah will be supporting all types of conservatives he must feel confident that she has that type of sweeping or charismatic ability to ‘reorient the party’. This is a very unusual comment indeed.
Sarah Palin should re-register as an Independent.
But like Vince Lombardi once said: "Score, if you're gonna play."
Agreed. Triangulation. Stay out of the head games that the Republicans and Democrats play to set citizens against each other to distract them while they’re stealing our lunch.
Betcha his blackberry is buzzing off the hook now, with irate RINOs demanding his head on a platter for saying this.
“Palin is to be marginalized, you idiot, not encouraged! Didn’t you get the memo?”
I don’t understand where all of this talk of a third party is coming from.
I think she’s a movement conservative and, as such, wants to lead a movement, like Reagan did.
