The latest example? Republican state party leaders are outraged that Steele has thus far failed to slander Obama by labeling him a socialist. Instead, Steele has opted for the equally innacurate but far less zingy “collectivist”.

Indiana RNC member James Bopp Jr.  has presented Steele with a petition signed by RNC members from 16 states, asking to hold a meeting in which the RNC will vote on using stronger language to charecterize the Obama administration.

Here’s what Bopp Jr. has to to say,as reported by the Washington Times:

"In just a few months, the goal of the Obama administration has become clear and obvious - to restructure American society along socialist ideals," Mr. Bopp said in summarizing the first resolution.
