Rev. Peterson: 'Michael Steele is a RINO'
Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, Founder and President of BOND Action, blasted RNC Chairman Michael Steele for his latest remarks that blacks don't have a reason to vote Republican. Steele also told 200 DePaul University students listening to his address on Tuesday that the Republicans walked away from blacks and that their strategy over the last 40 years to attract Southern white males has alienated minorities.
"Michael Steele is a RINO (Republican In Name Only) -- he's dividing the party and hurting recruitment efforts," said Rev. Peterson. "Since January I have called for the GOP to fire Steele because he cannot be trusted to lead the party to victory. I'm hoping that party leaders will finally get over their fear of being called racists and dump him before it's too late."
Rev. Peterson proposed these simple questions for Michael Steele:
1. As Chairman of the RNC, why would you say that black Americans have no reason to vote for Republicans?
2. What reason are you offering minority voters to attract them to the Republican Party?
3. You said that the Republican Party walked away from black voters. How so, Mr. Steele?
4. You claim that Republicans have mistreated the NAACP. Please explain this statement.
5. You stated that for the last 40 years Republicans had a "Southern Strategy" that focused on getting the white male vote and alienated minority voters. Are you saying that Republicans have had a racist strategy?
6. Finally, tell us why you think you and President Barack Obama have a "slimmer margin" of error because of your race.
Rev. Peterson added, "Steele is like an albatross around the neck of the party -- and Republicans will not succeed with him in charge."

WHO'S SIDE IS HE ON?!
Last straw Michael, you need to resign. Not only is that utterly insulting, it is arrogantly WRONG! The R party is the single BEST way, conservatives at least, of allowing for the opportunities for ALL Americans to make something of themselves, whatever it is they want to do. Pursuit of happiness is alive and well, but NOT in the D party. And the sooner you wake up to that fact, Michael, the better for ALL Americans.
Can't a brother hate whitey without everybody getting all wee-wee'd up?
Tinsel is not a RINO. He is a MOLE.
Micheal Steele will be the October surprise for the democrats.
He will increase this nuttyness and then leave the party for the reasons he has stated in this speech.
Steele is a progressive plant put in place to explode in October. Mark my words, I have said this before about him.
What is the GOP waiting for? When are they going to stand for SOMETHING...EVEN THEMSELVES!!
Say, what do you have against being “wee-wee’d up”? ;-)
And the sooner the GOP gets some guts the better! LOL
Watch your language young man!! LOL
Now it certainly looks that way to me too!
From your lips to Gods ears...Hi DoughtyOne
He is too busy going to the strip clubs to give attention to doing anything productive for the Republicans. Once again the Republicans shoot themselves in the foot by choosing Steele. It happens so often it can not be by accident.
It is purposeful.
God help us, stop this take over of America heading to destruction of life as we know it. Return us to saner times when You had a place and voice with Republicans and America. We need Your help to change the current course of events. Grant mercy on America, Israel, the lost, and believers everywhere, in Jesus name I pray, amen.
Thank you Jesse for speaking truth.
“What is the GOP waiting for? “
The GOP/RNC hierarchy is infested with RINOS.
Great tagline ;-)
Hi Abigail. I see the good Reverend is at top form today. Excellent!
It is so refreshing to see an honest Black man who gets it.
I love this guy.
