We’re all excited about the first African-American…RNC chair?
Posted by Liberty on February 3, 2009
I’ve been hearing joyful news-bites this morning about Eric Holder’s confirmation as the first African-American Attorney General. It reminded me of something good that happened on Friday that didn’t get much play in the MSM. Michael Steele was voted in as the new chair of the Republican National Committee. And yes, he is an African-American. That said, it is my opinion that the substance of a person is so much more important than style. Character, principles and the capacity to lead are the criteria by which we should choose our leaders, not race and general “coolness.”
Michael Steele possesses the qualifications and the vision to lead the GOP back to the top. He understands the importance of articulating a clear message of Conservatism. Check out the RNC website for his “Blueprint for Tomorrow.” That’s our guiding plan, guys. He stresses the importance of leading with integrity, clearly defining the difference between Republicans and Democrats and upgrading our strategies to compete in the modern political arena. I have to tell you, I’m optimistic about Michael Steele. I have every hope that he will be a leader for Conservatives, not just party hacks.
