The Grand Old Party (GOP) renewed its faith in the American Dream today when it voted to elect Michael Steele as the Chairman of the Party. Steele, the former Lt. Governor of Maryland, is the first African American to lead the GOP. It is refreshing to see that the party of Abraham Lincoln - the Great Emancipator - renew our faith in the American Dream.
Steele commented: "We're going to say to friend and foe alike: We want you to be a part of us, we want you to with be with us, and for those who wish to obstruct, get ready to get knocked over,"
To say that Steele faces huge obstacles to his success is a dramatic understatement; but he appears to have the qualifications and character to become a very successful chairman. In light of Washington, D.C.'s dominance by Democrats, a strong loyal opposition is, of course, necessary for good governance. Congrats!
