GOP Upset Michael Steele Isn’t Name-Calling
Republicans are angry at RNC Chair Michael Steele for failing to call President Obama and Democrats socialists. Leaders from 16 states want a debate and vote by the entire 168 member Republican National Committee.
“The threat to our country from the Obama administration cannot be underestimated,” Indiana RNC member James Bopp Jr. (right), wrote Wednesday in an e-mail to the full RNC membership. “They are proceeding pell-mell to nationalize major industries, to exponentially increase the size, power and intrusiveness of the federal government, to undermine free enterprise and free markets, to raise taxes to a confiscatory level.”
How do they get away with downright lying about what Obama is doing on taxes? But the Boppster was just getting started.
“In just a few months, the goal of the Obama administration has become clear and obvious – to restructure American society along socialist ideals,” Mr. Bopp said in summarizing the first resolution. The resolution’s chief sponsor is Washington state RNC member Jeff Kent, and it calls on the Democrats to be “truthful and honest with the American people by renaming themselves the Democrat Socialist Party.”
To cap it off, Bopp compared Democrats to the “evil empire”.
“Just as President Reagan’s identification of the Soviet Union as the ‘evil empire’ galvanized opposition to communism, we hope that the accurate depiction of the Democrats as a Socialist Party will galvanize opposition to their march to socialism,” Mr. Bopp wrote in his e-mail.
But Bopp isn’t the only nutball ruining his party.
Oregon RNC member Solomon Yue, a founder of a conservative caucus among RNC members, said, “We must refocus the public’s attention to the Democrat Party’s stampede to socialism and we must make our socialist president’s every legislative victory so costly that he will lose the war in 2010 and 2012.”
The “Republic” Party is surely in trouble.Click here for reuse options!
