Steele's political outlooks are somewhat moderate, but leaning very Right. Here is his rating according to OntheIssue's.com
Video from Steele's acceptance speech, via MSNBC.
His aggressiveness is the the one thing that made Steele the more attractive candidate than his competition. The man openly speaks his mind, often to others chagrin, but does so in a very articulate and no nonsense sort of way. In other words, there is no misunderstanding when Steele speaks.
I am very proud to have Michael Steele as the RNC Chairman, I think he will prove to be a dangerous adversary for the Progressives and it seems some on the Left share that concern.
From Lanny Davis on the Politico's, Arena,
As I stated in a previous Politico Arena, Michael Steele was positively my last preference for RNC Chair -- since he was, and is, by far, the most effective, articulate center - right voice of the Republican Party, with a firm but friendly manner on TV and, thus, the best possible choice for the GOP to appeal to the broad middle of American society.Things are starting to shape up for the GOP and it is safe to say the party will be in good hands.
