RNC Chairman Steele: GOP Should Focus On Issues

Sunday, 07 Mar 2010 12:11 AM


Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele says the GOP should focus on issues like jobs and education and not on scare tactics.

Steele made the remarks to reporters before he gave a speech Saturday at a Shelby County, Tenn., Republican Party fundraiser. Steele says he has launched an internal review into why a 72-page Power Point presentation to GOP fundraisers in Florida last month included a direct call to exploit "extreme negative feelings" toward Democrats.

The presentation depicted President Barack Obama as "The Joker," Nancy Pelosi as Cruella De Vil and Harry Reid as Scooby Doo.

Steele says the party doesn't need to scare anyone into supporting Republicans financially or politically. He says there's no reason "to play boogeyman."
