Tag: DR. Rob Steele

We have a good slate for Michigan going forward.
The result of Saturday's Michigan Republican convention was very conservative, and very consistent with tea party and traditional values that have been notably lacking in recent years. Add to this a solid backing (almost purposefully noticeable) of candidate Kerry Bentivolio in the 11th district, and it should be clear that some folks are starting to pay attention to the grassroots. And those grassroots are now becoming more fully vested in the party, and changing from within.
Michigan Supreme Court Justice:
State Board of Education
U of M Regent
Wayne State University Board of Governors
The Michigan Supreme Court pick was an interesting one for a number of reasons. We have seen much of the criticism of either O'Brien or Markey on RightMichigan.com, and frankly it was undeserved. Both candidates represented a conservative rule of law perspective and the nomination of Colleen O'Brien should not disappoint anyone. I tried to refrain from affecting the discussion and was particularly neutral and trying to look at qualifications and overall perspective.
I carried that neutrality into the convention and had no reason to specifically support either candidate, and was not worried about the outcome other than a bit of a nasty back and forth with passed out literature left in the seats for attendees. There were good people I knew supporting either candidate. After listening to both candidates in caucus, re-looking at notes, talking to friends who supported either candidate, reviewing caseload, history, etc., my decision to support a single candidate started to develop. I even spent 20-25 minutes speaking with justice Stephen Markman.
Saturday Morning found me leaning Jane Markey.

As I mentioned a little over a week ago, the iCaucus of Michigan went through the endorsement process for most of the candidates in the contested races at the Michigan Republican Party State Convention coming up next weekend. Invitations were sent out, questionnaires were completed, interviews were conducted, and endorsement votes were cast. The results, and the press release, follow the break.

The MiGOP convention is coming soon.
Among the choices delegates will be making are for the Republican noninations for trustee positions sought at MSU, and Regent at U of M. In these two races, I have decided to support solid constitutionalists, and fighters for common sense. Getting the respective fiscal houses in order, concern over the cost of tuition increases caused by social engineering and subsidizing out of country students (for diversity) will be addressed by these folks. The constitution as a part of the curriculum also taken a little more seriously than it has been for too many years.

Much of the complaint the current Tea Party nation has had with universities, is that they are generally indoctrination centers for the left.
By curriculum and action.
What would one expect when instruction leaves out something so important to our culture and heritage as the constitution that defines our relationship with government and its limitations. The university of Michigan being a prime example of what happens when folks let the inmates run the asylum for so long as has happened.
Maybe its time for some changes. DR. Rob Steele explains some of the changes he would work towards. (As always, apologies beforehand for shaky video.)
I will never think of this position in the same way.
Perhaps there may be hope for U of M after all.
Dr. Rob Steele, a cardiologist and popular Republican announced yesterday that he would seek the U of M regent position. From a press release yesterday:
Ann Arbor - Dr. Rob Steele announced today that he is running for the University of Michigan Board of Regents. He will seek to be nominated at the 2012 Michigan Republican Party Convention.
Good luck Dr. Steele, we'll be rooting for you here.
Potential candidate for US Senate from Michigan, Dr. Rob Steele has decided not to run for the seat occupied by Debbie Stabenow.
Dr. Rob Steele on the Michigan United States Senate Race
"We need real change in Washington and the only way to do that is by defeating Debbie Stabenow, President Obama and other liberal democrats in 2012. Stabenow and her democrat colleagues refuse to recognize that out of control government spending and over zealous regulators are killing the Michigan and U.S. economies.
Dr. Rob Steele is a cardiologist from Ypsilanti, Michigan. In 2010, Steele held John Dingell to his lowest percentage of vote in his 55-year career. Steele accomplished this while continuing his practice full time until just after Labor Day. Dingell outspent Steele by nearly a 3 to 1 margin.
