Steele has no use for old school

News Item:
Inside the Republican National Committee's first-ever Tech Summit.: "'There are two things that will get you kicked off the team,' Steele says. (No idle threat—fired RNC staffers spent the day clearing out their offices.) 'One is to say, We've always done it this way.' The other is to reject an idea because it's never been done before. In either case, he says, 'I don't want to have anything to do with you.'"
You have to like this mindset by Steele. The GOP can't mosey along doing things the same way it has been. Sure the message needs to be fixed and voters have to be given actual choices instead of one between a Democrat and a Democrat Lite. But the way things are done, the way the message is spread, has to be updated. "The way we've always done it" has cost us both houses and the presidency.

That's just a sidebar in the article, well worth a read. There is a long way to go in catching up with the Obamaites but having key people like Steele and Newt on board is a big, big plus.
