Michael Steele says, "The era of apologizing for Republican mistakes of the past is now officially over."

There was an "era of apologizing?"


  • There was a 5 minute window where congressional Repubs tried to distance themselves from deeds and policies of Bush/Cheney. But they just couldn't bring themselves to act like real legislators -- you know, bi-partisan... compromise -- and they decided to go the Party of No route. Then Rush opened his mouth... and Cheney rose from his crypt....

  • So, it was my mistake. I should have seen distancing as "an era of apologizing."

    Even then, if you blinked you'd have missed it.

    I think the "era of apologizing" was really "a period where we even acknowledged, but disputed, charges for which a decent person would apologize." They will now go into a mode of completely ignoring the existence of anyone but themselves. Also known as the the era of "Nah, nah, nah. I can't heeeeaaaar you... Nah, nah, nah."

  • He's just saying they are done explaining what they did to put our country in such bad shape.
    It's all Obama's fault now. Their talking point is how much money Obama is spending, it will ruin the future of our children and grandchildren.
    That bus left by the time Reagan left office.

  • My guess is that he's trying to say they should stop feeling bad for being Republicans. Really more about a sense of public shame.

    In other words, stop FEELING like you need to apologize.
