Michael Steele Hearts Joe the Plumber

RNC Chairman Michael Steele credits Joe the Plumber with helping Republicans get their "groove" back in the 2008 election. By the way Mr. Steele, how did the 2008 election turn out for the GOP?

I’m the first one to say that the party, for political expedience and convenience, quite frankly, didn’t do the hard, steady work of building a ground game and a relationship with the voters.

So along comes Barack Obama, he sounds good, he looks great, it’s a beautiful package, and then we had no filler. We had nothing to fall back on.

We couldn’t even argue the basics of the economy in the last election effectively, and it took a happenstance conversation with a plumber before we could really begin to get that groove.

Barack Obama beat John McCain by 92 electorial votes. Senate Democrats are filibuster proof and House Democrats hold a super majority. That was some groove Joe the Plumber gave to the Republican Party.
