Michael Steele was in the news lately. Governor Rick Perry of Texas not so much, but he was on the Mike Gallagher Show. Both, in their own way, showed how lost the Republicans are. The just don't know how to win by taking the battle to the enemy. Michael Steele thought that attacking fellow conservatives and comparing the Republican Convention to the Nazi Party was the way to go, but Rick Perry was not much better. http://mikegallagher.townhall.com/TalkRadio/Show.aspx?ContentGuid=a7ba152b-e08b-4e06-97e9-8b491c220995&RadioShowId=2
After claiming he was opposed to both the TARP bailout and the stimulous, he went on to "wonder" why Janet "Reno" Napalitano, "a border state governor" was so weak on border security. Wow, news flash, she opposed every significant border security initiatitive in the last 8 years; opposed the fence, opposed local enforcement of immigration law, opposed E-verify, opposed local enforcement of E-verify, opposed local anti-smuggling initiatives, anti-welfare restrictions for illegals, ad naseum. The only enforcement efforts she supported was the deployment of the National Guard at the border, but sans enforcement authority. So, why is Perry so surprised that Napalitano is so anti-enforcement? Is he stupid? I am just simple voter, but I knew she was anti-enforcement a long time ago. It would have been better for Perry to go on the attack and expose the Obama Regime for its pro-illegal alien policies. We don't need more than zero Michael Steeles, much less one.
