Steele's blog no longer titled 'What Up?'

The RNC has apparently changed the name of Michael Steele's blog.

WASHINGTON (CNN) - After an initial round of Internet mockery, the Republican National Committee has apparently decided to drop "What Up?" as the title of Michael Steele's blog on the newly revamped GOP.com.

One day after the rollout of the site, which crashed repeatedly throughout the day Wednesday and was ridiculed by Democrats and Republicans alike, Steele's blog is now called "Change the Game."

There's still only one post so far on the blog, a short entry that asks readers to answer the question, "Why are you a Republican?"

    Steel gets on my last nerve, he wants to relate to the urban youth in America so bad, but he can never relate because in our eyes he is a sale out! See… it is one thing to be white and not care about minorities, we are use to that, it is another to be a minority and cater to the people who would rather see you dead then see you actually be successful. Just because they use you as their puppet now, doesn’t mean they won’t use you for fire wood after the show.

    Hello Mr. Steele:

    I am not a Republican. I am a Democrat, a liberal–and proud of it!

    Many of the GOP "values" have become superficial platitudes. And sure, "fiscal responsibility" is quite laudable, but the GOP abandoned that "value" under Reagan.

    Mr. Steele, I think you would be much happier being a Democrat! Join us!

    I left the GOP because you ended up being nothing but a bunch of "Nattering Nabobs of negativism."
    How in the hell did a bunch of extremist idiots take over the Party

    So now the leader of the party of No wants to campaign for "change"-Strat with his attitude-chnage from negative to positive and get Boneheads Boehner, McConnel, Graham, and all their braindead deciples to "change" also. They might even like particpating in a positive way for "positive change" – How refreshing and good for our country, and lives might that be?

    "Change the game?" well, at least the republicans are now admitting that they are playing games. It's time for someone to get serious, and apparently it's not the republicans.

    steele is such an embarrassement both to himself and the republican party. i can just imagine how these old white men and women that have always been racist are freaking out on this token of a republican. he has shown such poor judgement in his new title that even republicans are gritting there teeth at what he does and says.
    republicans need to remember to be careful what they wish for because they just might get it. steele should feel grateful to barack obama because he is the only reason steele was ever given his job. such a token he is!
