GOP abandons push to rename Democratic Party ‘Socialist’

05.22.09 06:24 PM

After a short but intense campaign by some of its members, the Republican Party has abandoned its call for the Democratic Party to rename itself as the ‘Democrat Socialist Party.’

According to the Associated Press, the move spurred a fight within the GOP ranks that reflected the divide between those who want to take the party in a more centrist direction and those seeking to give it a more conservative tone.

The original resolution provoked criticism from the leadership of the GOP, with committee chairman Michael Steele suggesting the party should focus on criticizing the administration’s policies rather than engaging in "name-calling."

"I’ve been very clear that I don’t think that is an appropriate way to express our views on the issues of the day," he said on Meet the Press.

However, the resolutions supporters are not giving up their quest to draw the nation’s attention to Obama’s policies. Their new resolution urges Democrats to "stop pushing our country towards socialism and government control."

Since last year’s general elections, the Republican Party has been scrambling to find a leader and has been engaged in a debate over its identity at a time when the opposition Democratic Party, which controls both the legislature and the executive, has found an undisputed leader in President Obama.
