Michael Steele’s book is a prescription for not only returning the Republican Party to powerit’s an action plan for bringing the party of Lincoln back to the conservative principles upon which both it and the nation were founded. It’s a must-read for everyone who believes that Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness’ is more than an antiquated catchphrase in a historical document.”
Mark R. Levin, New York Times bestselling author of Liberty and TyrannyA Conservative Manifesto
In the face of exploding deficits, an attempt to nationalize healthcare, and the erosion of the values that made America great, Michael Steele is taking a stand. Upon witnessing the suffering of the United States and the Republican Party when it abandons its core conservative principles, Steele sounds a long-overdue battle cry for a fresh, energetic conservatism to fight Obama’s socialist vision.”

What Should Conservatives Do In the Age of Obama?
Two Words: Fight Back
President Obama ran on promises of bipartisanship and centrism, but he’s delivered something else: unprecedented government borrowing and spending, unsustainable debt, and audacious attempts to usher in a colossal, overbearing government, the likes of which we’ve never seen.
In Right Now, Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele blows the whistle on the entire Obama agenda. Setting aside appeals for caution in taking on a popular president, Steele throws down the gauntlet, insisting Republicans must expose and refute the policies lying at the heart of this administration’s attempts to resurrect a discredited brand of extreme liberalism. In this provocative, combative book, Steele calls on Republicans to:
Denounce President Obama’s destructive bailout-stimulus culture
Resist President Obama’s socialized healthcare
Stand up for free enterprise in the face of environmental extremism
Oppose this administration’s massive expansion of the bureaucracy and the proliferation of unaccountable czars”
Reject President Obama’s foreign policy of groveling, appeasement, and drift
Expose the hypocrisy of liberals who proclaim tolerance” as a cardinal virtue, then attempt to silence conservatives
A call to arms for grassroots America, this book argues for abandoning conservatism-lite,” returning to core conservative principles, and launching an uncompromising campaign for limited government. The path to a Republican renaissance has already been laid, says Steele: the target is the Obama agenda, the method is active opposition, and the time is Right Now.
