Michael Steele: 'No more looking in the rear-view mirror'

Except for continuing to talk about what some guy who was elected president almost 30 years ago would have done.

"Ronald Reagan never lived in the past. Ronald Reagan was all about the future. If President Reagan were here today he would have no patience for Americans who looked backward. Ronald Reagan always insisted that our party must move aggressively to seize the moment, he insisted that our party recognize the truth of the times and establish our first principles in both word and deed. As conservatives we must stop acting like we don’t really believe in our principles. Too often we act as if we are scared to apply our timeless principles to today’s problems and challenges… For Reagan’s conservatism to take root in the next generation we must offer genuine solutions that are relevant to THIS age.”
"Genuine solutions for THIS age," like what, Michael? Tax cuts? Pro-business regulatory policies?

Yeah, that has "comeback" written all over it.
