Mein Obama is to be commended for his dubbing the current head of the Republican Party a most apt moniker:
Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele said he finally got to meet President Barack Obama on Saturday, at a VIP reception at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. He got his picture taken with Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, as celebrities such as Alec Baldwin milled around.The Wall Street Journal describing Steele as slightly nerdy is an understatement (although we have a feeling that Mein Obama might be the last one picked in a pick-up basketball game).
At last year’s dinner, Obama poked fun at the slightly nerdy Steele and his sometimes awkward attempts to seem cool.“Michael Steele is in the house tonight. Or as he would say, in the `heezy,’” Obama said last year. “Wassup,” he added, making a hip-hop-style hand gesture.
In his remarks to the crowd, Obama gave a shoutout to Steele, calling him “Notorious G.O.P.”
Michael Steele is a token Black person, who heads the Republican Party and appears frequently on Fox News. He has no doubt attempted to Act White his entire career, while enjoying a major 'push' (in Pro Wrestling, a push is given to a wrestler by the promoter when they want to advance their career and get them higher up on the card for maximum exposure) because he is normally one of the only Black men at country club or lily-white Republican functions.
And yes, he is the Notorious G.O.P due to his race, which both helps and hinders him as he attempts to appeal to young Black people who look upon the Republican Party with the same look of dread and apprehension an inmate on death row looks upon his last meal.
Black people, who voted 96- 1 for Mein Obama in the 2008 Presidential Election, must be assiduously pursued and courted as the Republican Party mere existence relies upon transferring that racial monolith in voting to right side. Steele, the Notorious G.O.P, has a plan for doing this as he will make engage in a bold "Black Eye for the Closet Black Conservative Guy" routine known as the "hip hop makeover":
Sadly, this Hip-Hop makeover has taken a backseat to some of the "Notorious G.O.P's" public blunders that cast serious doubt on his effectiveness as the Token Black head of the GOP:
Newly elected Republican National Committee Chairman Michael S. Steele plans an “off the hook” public relations offensive to attract younger voters, especially blacks and Hispanics, by applying the party's principles to “urban-suburban hip-hop settings.”
The RNC's first black chairman will “surprise everyone” when updating the party's image using the Internet and advertisements on radio, on television and in print, he told The Washington Times.
Michael Steele's buffoonery knows no bounds, but I wonder if he's telling the truth this time or just trying to play the race card to save his job.
Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman Michael Steele, who is known for making controversial statements, on Sunday said that white Republicans are afraid of him.
Steele also took aim at some in his own party last week as well, saying that he would "come after" centrist Republicans who support healthcare reform.
The Republican chairman appeared on NewsOne's "Washington Watch" this weekend, a new Sunday political talk show aimed at a black audience. The host, Roland Martin, asked Steele how Republicans could reach out to black voters. Steele responded by talking about issues such as education, small business, jobs and the economy, The rest is in a partial transcript:
MARTIN: But your candidates got to talk to them. One of the criticisms I've always had is Republicans -- white Republicans -- have been scared of black folks.
STEELE: You're absolutely right. I mean I've been in the room and they've been scared of me. I'm like, "I'm on your side" and so I can imagine going out there and talking to someone like you, you know, [say] "I'll listen." And they're like "Well." Let me tell you. You saw in Christie and you saw in McDonnell a door open because they went in and engaged. McDonnell was very deliberate about spending...
STEELE: I mean, Sheila Johnson was on his team. I mean, that was a big deal. That's because he engaged her and she helped navigate him through that relationship.
Mr. Steele, the white people who elected you to the head of the RNC did so precisely because you are Black person. Regardless of your qualifications, you were placed as the head of the RNC in a misguided attempt at remaining relevant in the eyes of the increasingly diverse United States after a humiliating defeat at the hands of a multicultural alliance in 2008.
Desperate to appeal to the colored masses, the RNC selected the Notorious G.O.P hoping against all common sense and logic that the selection of a Black man would repudiate the charge of racism.
After all, how can a party be racist if they put a Black man in charge? Right? You see, the Tea Party movement is attempting to do the same, by utilizing the melanin-enhanced Lloyd Marcus to sing nonsensical songs to the goofy masses of white people amassed to protest unjust taxation from a government that have lost complete control over.
The best way to garner votes from Black people is to offer handouts, mortgages, health care and other monetary incentives for their vote. Of course, if that fails, fried chicken might be a suitable short-term strategy for votes:
Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele told a group of young Republicans that he would reach out to black voters by offering them fried chicken and potato salad.No, there is no opposition to Black Run America (BRA) from the Republican Party who will stop at nothing from their attempts to out-maneuver minority outreach programs from the Democrats, even if it means anointing The Notorious G.O.P as the token head of the RNC. Curiously, this move hasn't resulted in Black people flocking to the Republican side:
Asked by a blogger how he would reach out to "diverse populations," Steele said: "My plan is to say 'Y'all come,' because a lot of you are already here."
After someone in the audience said, "I'll bring the collard greens," Steele added, "I got the fried chicken and potato salad."
Believe it or not, Michael Steele is having a hard time bringing minorities into the GOP fold:
Republican National Committee Chairman Michael S. Steele, under fire recently from members of his party for what they view as his shortcomings in management and communication, has also made little headway in another area: winning over minority voters to the GOP cause.
When Steele took the helm of the RNC last year, he said expanding the party beyond its traditional base was one of his main goals. But he has not been able to chip away at a current political reality: The vast majority of non-white voters are Democrats who generally approve of President Obama.
In a recent Washington Post poll, 23 percent of non-white registered voters said they had favorable views of the Republican Party, compared with 72 percent who viewed the GOP unfavorably. Those numbers were similar to polls taken in 2008, before Steele took over as RNC chairman, when 28 percent of non-white voters had favorable views of the party and 67 percent unfavorable.
African Americans' views of the GOP have barely budged since Steele's tenure began: In Post-ABC News polls following Steele's becoming the GOP's first-ever party chairman, 78 percent of blacks say they view the GOP unfavorably, again virtually unchanged from two years earlier.
The problem is simply this: Black people have free will and they can decide for themselves which party offers the most sensible solutions to the help their lot in life. The Republicans (and the Tea Party) idea of limited government, personable responsibility and individual rights have little to no appeal to Black people.
Thus, Stuff Black People Don't Like includes Michael Steele, the Notorious G.O.P. A token Black person, who has acted white his entire life and now heads the Republican Party truly needs no further explanation.
