In a speech today to state party chairmen, the inestimable Michael Steele says the GOP has "turned the corner" – it's admittedly not clear which one – and is "emerging once again...to turn our timeless principles into new solutions for the future." He said Republicans will fight Obama in a way cooler way than the "shabby and classless way" Democrats opposed Bush.
"The era of apologizing for Republican mistakes of the past is now
officially over..." Steele said. "...And as we move forward Republicans should take a lesson from Ronald Reagan."
