Abby Zimet

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."
