RNC Member: Media Is Missing the Point on ‘Democrat Socialist’ Resolution
I just talked with James Bopp, Jr., the Indiana member of the Republican National Committee who’s doing a lot of the legwork to pass the “Democrat Socialist Party” resolution next week. First: the resolution will pass. “I don’t know of any opposition to it,” said Bopp. Second: the media is largely missing the point of the resolution and has mistook it for an official RNC policy change or a whack at Chairman Michael Steele.
“We’re not asking Steele to say or do anything,” said Bopp. “It is an effort to accurately describe and thereby educate the American people on what agenda of the Democratic Party is. We have two jobs, historically, in the RNC, in order to be successful in elections. One is to accurately describe what Democrats are doing as they try to hide their agenda. And the other is for us to be true to our conservative principles. That’s what we’re doing with this resolution.”
