Screw Up Talk

Republican Michael Steele warns moderate Republicans that intra-party fighting “is the first way to screw yourself.”

“Hours after Michael Steele warned moderate Republicans that they would be targeted if they didn’t support conservative principles, the RNC Chairman called discussion of intra-party feuding ‘stupid’ and insisted that the GOP would lose if ‘we play politics amongst our own.’ In a conference call with grassroots Republicans leaders to thank them for the work they did in winning two governor’s seats in the 2009 election, Steele laid out a blueprint for expanding on the early success. The RNC chair stressed the need to avoid having Republicans target one another. ‘It is the first way to screw yourself,’ he said.”
