Republicans Maneuver to Oust Their Leader

Republicans Maneuver to Oust Their Leader

WASHINGTON — Turning their attention to the 2012 presidential election, Republican leaders are digging in for a battle over control of the Republican National Committee, judging that its role in fund-raising, get-out-the-vote operations and other tasks will be critical to the effort to topple President Obama. 

Some senior party officials are maneuvering to put pressure on Michael Steele, the controversial party chairman, not to seek re-election when his term ends in January or, failing that, to encourage a challenger to step forward to take him on.

So far, the effort has been tentative, with Mr. Steele’s most ardent opponents working behind the scenes to persuade an alternative to run against him — fearful that any overt moves will create a backlash in Mr. Steele’s favor among those committee members who tend to view the establishment in Washington with suspicion.

One man leading the effort is a Mississippi Republican Party committeeman, Henry Barbour, who is a nephew of Gov. Haley Barbour of Mississippi — a former chairman of the Republican National Committee, himself. Governor Barbour is said by people involved in the discussions to be among those eager to see a change at the top of the party and recently criticized party fund-raising under Mr. Steele.

Republicans Maneuver to Oust Their Leader

I know the original story isn’t aimed at Sarah Palin, but there are some parts of this story that Palin definitely needs to be injected into.

First; every time I hear someone address the issue of Sarah Palin running for, and being elected President in 2012, I truly cringe. I don’t like Sarah Palin. I think she is the most under qualified person that the GOP could ever run for the office of President. I honestly believe that if she were to become President, she would be an even bigger danger to America than Barack Obama is.

Sarah Palin is a quitter. All the excuses be damned, Sarah Palin QUIT on Alaska and she ran from the fight. That can’t be denied. You don’t cut and run if you’re RIGHT!

That said; she has, to some degree, redeemed herself in the eyes of some. Some never actually saw her quitting as a bad thing. I never understood that rationale, but, it’s a free nation, believe as you will.

I see Sarah Palin as nothing more than a cheerleader that can rally a crowd, raise tons and tons of money, and can deliver more one liners than Dan Rather on election night. That’s why I believe Sarah Palin needs to be the next chairperson of the RNC.

It’s a job that’s well suited to her *rock star* personality. It’s a job that she could excel at, and in all probability, she would be the best chairperson the RNC has ever had.

And let’s face the facts, suppose she quits again…no big deal, it’s a *Rah-Rah* position that can be filled by any Type-A drama queen and media whore. See what I mean? Palin IS perfect for the job.

What? Palin isn’t a Type-A Drama Queen and Media Whore? Really? Palin can work a room full of reporters and a rally like a stripper works a pole.

How many times can you turn on the TV and NOT see Palin and her new show, Sarah Palin’s Alaska? Or her daughter, Bristol, on Dancing With The Stars? Bristol Palin is a STAR? Or, is Bristol Palin on that program because she is the infamous semi-drama queen daughter of Sarah Palin? A Star, in the minds of some, of the TEA Party and all things Conservative?

OK, back to the story.

Officials close to the presumed new House speaker, Representative John A. Boehner of Ohio, and the Senate minority leader, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, said that both men would prefer a new chairman as well, but that they were also resigned to Mr. Steele’s continued leadership should no clear alternative emerge to defeat him.

Michael Steele is a RINO. Steele is a weak sister, he is highly ineffective in MY opinion and is only in place because the GOP/RNC needed a high profile BLACK person in a position of power to prove that they are a diverse bunch and not a collection of old, rich WHITE people.

Michael Steele is a token, nothing more.

Several officials involved in the discussions, all of whom requested anonymity to share details of the talks, said Mr. Priebus had recently warned Mr. Steele that a run for re-election could prove difficult this time around, and advised him to consider leaving the chairmanship at a time when he could point to big Republican gains nationwide.

Admittedly, the GOP did very well in the recent elections, but I don’t think Steele is the reason the GOP made the gains it did.

Sarah Palin – An American Quitter

October 22nd, 2009 . by TexasFred

Sarah Palin – An American Quitter

Sarah Palin was the *window dressing* for John McCain’s failed run at the presidency in 2008.

She QUIT as the Governor of Alaska at the end of July 2009.

One of the reasons she cited was the medias personal and political attacks on her, and she suggested that her quitting was ”the right path for Alaska.”

Palin continues to be touted as *The Future* for the GOP. It seems that many perceive her to be the star OF the GOP. I know that’s the impression I get. I also feel that if Palin is the answer for the GOP, if she is the best the GOP can do, we’re going to spend a LONG time living under the tyranny of Barack Hussein Obama and his evil minions.

All the *cutesy* Northwoods Barbie BS, the you betcha and by golly doggone it disgusting speech pattern aside, Palin is a proven QUITTER! That is a hard fact and an indisputable truth.

Sarah Palin RAN when the heat was turned up, ran AWAY, she could NOT handle the pressures of being Governor of Alaska and the criticisms of the media that came with it. Do ANY of you even remotely believe that the office of the President is any LESS stressful?
