Just got back from the breakfast with Michael Steele in Macomb County and I have to say...I think he gets it! He seems to understand that they lost in 2006 and 2008 because they did not stick to the conservative principles they ran on. He understands that the Republican Party needs to embrace limited taxation and limited government and not try to be the moderate party that supposedly makes everyone happy. He seems to have learned the recent lessons of the last New York and New Jersey elections. I have to say that I am quite optimistic that their platform will go back to being the platform of conservative principles!
