NEW ORLEANS -- A more soft-spoken and humble Michael Steele assured his party faithful Saturday that he has learned his lesson from the Republican National Committees (RNC) recent troubles.
In life, you realize that you cant please everyone, but you can certainly make them mad at you the same time, and thats a lesson well-learned, Steele said at the outset of his speech to the Southern Republican Leadership Conference.
Steele then offered a quasi-apology for the distractions that have plagued the RNC and led two members of the committee to call for his resignation.
Folks have been mad at us in the past, and we have learned from that past, Steele said. And we are ready to move on as Republicans, as conservatives."

I see the same problem that plagues election ballots across the country likewise plagues the RNC.
Anyone halfway decent has no interest in politics. This is the result.
“Republicans, as conservatives.”
Why aren’t both capitalized?
The reason people are mad is that we no longer are willing to accept the lie that we have to elect a political class the has no principles in order to win. The GOP is 60-70 % conservative and te largest political group is both socially and fiscally conservative. Most of America see big government as a problem and Steele and other Republican political insiders have been slow to get it. We aren’t going to settle any more for the constant slide towards socialism and liberty rending liberalism.
I thought I read the whole thing, but somehow I must have skipped over the part where he resigned.
Conservative isn’t capitalized because it isn’t a proper noun, unless it’s referring to the Conservative Party.
No they haven’t.
Steele is still there.
ACTIONS not WORDS, Mr. Steele. Repeal ‘Rat CARE, filibuster till Nov.
But, does Steel mean it?
He means they didn’t learn anything from the ‘08 election? Losing the Presidency and both Houses taught them nothing?
Slow learners, these Republicans.
He admits he “made mistakes”, but doesn’t detail what those mistakes were, so we still don’t know what he’s talking about, could be anything from enjoying the highlife to the embarrasment of the $2000 Voyeur nightclub tab.
If only those were the most serious mistakes he’s made.....
Looks like both Steele and Tiger Woods, big mistake-admitters, are out there now at the same time, trying to
‘make the cut’. Ultimately I’m not sure either will make it.
The RNC has something very much in common with the DNC
They have absolutely no perception of the level of outrage We the People have for their unyielding arrogance and elitism.
The national mood will NOT calm down by November and the liberals and progressives in both parties will be unceremoniously thrown the hell out on their asses.
We need to get rid of graham and mccain asap.
I think he must mean the mistakes that led to delays in launching the $39.95 per year "Michael Steele 24/7" website, and mistakes with the ad campaign for Steele Cologne, the Republican Fragrance for Men.
Agreed, we want to see action, not just words. Words are cheap, and even then, what the RINO’s don’t say speaks as loud as what they do.
The real Apology would be to get out and do not come back.
