Negative Inaction

06Jul10

Watch Cynthia Tucker, a liberal columnist from the Atlanta Constitution-Journal, explain why affirmative action is a bad idea.

Of course, the irony is that he never would have been voted in as Chairman of the Republican Party were he not black. Let’s remember how the Party wound up with Michael Steele. In November 2008, the Party was devastated that the Democrats had elected the nation’s first black president while the Republican Party was stuck with being seen as largely the party of aging white people, with good reason. A party that was hostile to people of color, especially blacks and Latinos.

So the Party needed a new face, preferably a face of color, and they didn’t have very many officials to choose from. So, they came up with Michael Steele. And it is very ironic since the Republicans have been so critical of affirmative action, to watch them stuck with their affirmative action hire that they dare not get rid of because that would generate even more controversy.

Steele is a problem for the GOP, because they figure they can’t fire him now without angering those they hired him to mollify. Better to hire on merit rather than divide and conquer with affirmative action.

  1. Where did Tucker get her crystal ball?

    Steele has to go but it is because the whole Republican party has to reassess and improve its standard operating procedures. His color is irrelevant.

    This independent gets feed back that the attitude in the street is that incumbents are at risk in both parties. The chickens are coming home to roost because both the Democrats and the Republicans have ignored public sentiment relative to the path the country should be traveling.

    While OBAMA has his boot on the throat of the Democratic party and the labor unions have bought OBAMA to forward a socialist agenda, the Republicans have an opportunity to remake themselves from the grassroots on up.

    The Republicans don’t yet understand that they have to redesign their image to attract new and committed followers. Both parties have cut out a skinny slice of ideology. The socialist philosophy of the sitting OBAMA has thrown the philosophies out of whack for OBAMA is a liberal Democrat like Chavez and Castro. He is an outlier on the political spectrum and says things that are left of center but then acts from his socialist perch forwarding an agenda of centralized government.

    The Republicans have the opportunity to appeal to the majority of voters by selling themselves as protectors of the Constitution, advocates of limited government and lower taxes and the party that will listen to the public sentiment of “We the People.”

    Steele has to go because he is an old school politician and is not equipped to undo the damage being done by OBAMA’s socialist agenda. The dazed behavior of the Republican Party in response to the Alinsky community organizer tactics and strategies that OBAMA and his Chicago cronies have so successfully applied can only be countered with NEW tactics and strategies that “We the People” can embrace.

    Business as usual will not work any longer. Keeping Mr. Steele in his present position is business as usual.

    It’s time for some “Steele Justice”…

    Cue Lawrence Welk’s ending credits jingle, “Bubbles in the Wine”:

    “Good night, sleep tight and pleasant dreams to you
    Here’s a wish and prayer that every dream comes true
    And though it’s always sweet sorrow to part
    I know you’ll always remain in my heart
    Good night, sleep tight and pleasant dreams to you
    Here’s a wish and a prayer that every dream comes true
    And now ’til we meet again Adios, au revior, auf weidersehen…
    Good Night!”
