Steele made these comments yesterday on FOX News.
And you know what? Michael Steele is absolutely right. It is going to be a real uphill climb to win back voters who are angry at the Republican party betrayal of Conservative values, and no longer trust the GOP. Some people might not want to hear it, but it is true, and Steele's candor on the issue is refreshing.
But, in order to change, the Republican party is going to have to abandon the "big tent" approach it had under Reagan. The Neocon trash has been taken out and kicked the the curb, and that is where it needs to stay. Conservative values cannot ever again be watered down with Neocon fake-Conservative ideology. If you have to ask why, you need only to take a look around you, at the results of the largest betrayal of Conservative voters in the history of the Republican party.
To the Neocons - Take a hike and stop whining. You lost. Your ideals don't work. The proof was the result of your being in power. Either get with the program, or watch the rebuilding of the Republican party from the sidelines. It's your choice.
