The evolution of Michael Steele
RNC Chairman Michael Steele readies himself for some purging:
RNC Chairman Michael Steele, channeling his party's energized conservative wing, said the party will "come after" moderates who support President Obama's domestic policies.
"[C]andidates who live in moderate to slightly liberal districts have got to walk a little bit carefully here, because you do not want to put yourself in a position where you’re crossing that line on conservative principles, fiscal principles, because we’ll come after you,” Steele told ABC's Top Line in response to a question about Republicans who support the White House's stimulus and health care plans.
Do folks remember when Steele was the "anonymous Senate candidate" badmouthing George W. Bush to a room of reporters? The guy who was trying to come off as a moderate because, as he said, "If this race is about Republicans and Democrats, I lose." Whatever happened to that guy?
