Michael Steele Speaks With Bloggers About His Bid for RNC Chair

Bill Smith, ARRA Editor: This afternoon, I joined other bloggers from across the nation in a conference call with Michael Steele who expressed to bloggers that he needed their help to improve the Republican Party’s technology capabilities should he be elected Chairman of the Republican National Committee. Below are excerpts from Steele’s blogger conference call:
“. . . Thanks for ‘blogging’ in… I think that the fact that I’m on the phone with you guys should give you some indication of where I want to take this party next. It has always amazed me that we have under-utilized an incredibly important resource and that is the men and women out here who blog, and who share information, collect information, and spread the word around. We have not, certainly at the national level, effectively utilized some of our strengths, effectively utilized certain strategies that will allow us to reach out with our message across this country. So, part of the parcel of what I want to do as chairman is to kick-start this in a different direction. Technology is my friend. I blog quite a bit. I’m usually on the net 2 or 3 o’clock in the morning which is crazy, but fun because I get a sense of what is going on around the world and tap into the thinking of a lot of our grassroots players out there and that includes you. So, it’s a real honor to welcome you all to this and let me just tell you this will be just the first of a series of conversations leading up to the election of the next chairman and one that process is done, many of you will be at the table in helping to shape an Internet strategy, a communication strategy, that will be second to none.”

. . . “When it comes to what you do as bloggers, now my understanding and appreciation of blogging is that this is something that Republicans really kind of started back in the Clinton era. There were a lot of guys and gals that started communicating amongst this thing so why did we let this enterprise drop? Why aren’t we actively engaging you to test ideas, to find out what’s going on in the streets, and sharing the information of what we’re doing on policy, on tactics, on all these things that get people excited and want to be a part of something . . .”
Steele also answered questions put to him by bloggers on his various policies. I encourage you to listen to Michael Steele's position on where the Republican Party needs to be headed in engaging the liberal elite and standing in the public square drawing a line between an Obama administration and the conservative public policy that facilitates the pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness while also providing individuals the freedom to focus on their jobs, family and own interests. "A person must be able to do for themselves and their families before they can do for others." Listen to Michael Steele’s comments.

i agree we as a party need to utilize technolgy against the left... and get a conservative message that is direct and to the point....and TAKE public MONEY as much as possible... and never trust the democrats to be honorable in a promise to not take public campaign money
