By a show of hands, does anyone think RNC Chairman Michael Steele has done anything for them in the last few years? Was he instrumental in getting the Republicans back into control of the House?
OR, did they take the House IN SPITE of the RNC and Steele?
It's the latter, IMHO. Most of the new House seats are Tea Party backed, staunch Conservatives, which Steele certainly is NOT. If Steele had such good ideas on candidates and voter wants, not to mention conservative ideals, how come he backed the RINO candidate in MA and fought the Tea Party candidate in DE by backing the well connected, lifer politician candidate there?! BTW, the conservative voters of DE voted AGAINST Steele's man, and even when it was clear that Christine O'Donnell would win the Primary and afterward, Steele and the RNC did NOT help her.
Steele said HE presided over the gains last November, that HE was instrumental in the money the RNC got last year and that HE is a "glass half-full kinda guy" who knows there is still work to do. Well, I think, most of the visible Republicans we see today, Steele like Romney and McCain, is a Shirt half-stuffed kinda guy!
Steele, like the rest of the semi-conservative, limp spined RNC members need to go. The sooner, the better.
And just as an aside, the top money raiser for the RNC is Barack Hussein Obama!!. With a close second place being a tie between the disaster twins, Nancy and Harry. It was, after all, the American people being dictated to and lorded over for two years that filled to RNC coffers with fresh money and the House of Representatives with Conservative Republicans.
