RNC Chairman Michael Steele Sets the Record Straight on ‘New Captains of Industry’
HOUSTON, Jan. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ – “New Captains of Industry” (www.blogtalkradio.com/newcaptainsofindustry/) today announced the availability of its interview with Michael Steele, Chairman of the Republican National Committee, hosted on January 5, 2011 by market commentator, institutional fund manager and Chairman of the National Eagles and Angels Association, George Jarkesy.
During the frank and insightful discussion, Chairman Steele endeavors to set the record straight on the many notable accomplishments achieved by the RNC in the most recent election cycle; misreported or outright misrepresentations of key facts; prevailing opportunities and challenges confronting the Party in the upcoming Presidential election cycle; and his impassioned belief that the Party must continue working to redefine itself – particularly in view of his opinion that the landscape has indeed changed irrevocably.
“Our Party must continue to redefine itself in 21(st) Century terms,” states Chairman Steele. “The dynamics shaping us are vastly different from what they were just 10 years ago; just five years ago. We’ve made tremendous progress in the past two years… and have a new wellspring of Republican leadership and young gun donors who want to come be a part of helping the Party grow and sustain itself.”
When asked his opinion on what impact the new Republican leadership will have on policymaking related to entrepreneurial growth companies, he said, “The Party leadership will speak very clearly to a new mandate that was given to us by the People on November 2. That being: stop the spending; cut the debt; reduce the deficit that we have right now; and put this country back on a stronger fiscal footing by relying on and trusting the entrepreneurial spirit and ingenuity of the men and women who actually create the wealth of this country – and that’s small business owners – recognizing that they know best how to create a dollar, save a dollar and spend a dollar.”
