Michael Steele’s ego and self importance is very funny.
Steele has come under increase attack by his own side.
After implying that the Republicans are not ready to lead he tried to backtrack by stating “I mean, I didn’t ask for, I didn’t seek this job, I didn’t ask for it.”
And he followed up that lie with “I’m not defined by this job. When this job is over I will go back to doing something else. But God, I really believe, has placed me here for a reasonbecause who else and why else would you do this unless there’s something inside of you that says right now you need to be here to do this?”, during an interview on CBN.
I predict that Steele will be out as RNC chairman within a month.
I know that when I contribute to a political Party or candidate I would like to think that my money is going to serve that Party or candidate.
Contributors to the RNC should keep an eye on the RNC and specifically on Michael Steele.
Nationaljournal.com reports that the RNC transferred $20K to the Northern Mariana Islands in the past 2 months.
Why would they do this? The Northern Mariana Islands have no voting members of Congress and no electoral votes to offer the GOP’s national candidates.
The reason according to some RNC critics is that they helped elect Michael Steele to his position at the RNC.
“Steele won his race to head the national GOP with backing from the committee’s 5 island constituencies”.
“Under RNC rules, each territory has as many voting members on the committee as a state, giving the Northern Mariana Islands as much sway over the committee as, say, TX or CA.”
“Traditionally, the islands vote ..continue reading
Republicans are doing everything possible to obstruct health care reform.
One of their tactics has been to distort the amount that health care reform will cost.
The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has scored both the Senate and House bills at costing under $1 trillion over a ten year period.
The Republicans have continual lied about the numbers and claimed that it will actually cost somewhere between $1.5 and $2.5 trillion over the ten year period.
Not to be outdone Michael, Steele RNC Chairman claimed during an interview with the Right Wing News blog, that health care reform will actually cost $1 trillion each year.
Where did that number come from? Out of his pea-sized brain.
Another total fabrication by the Republicans.
This has been a busy week for Michael Steele, RNC Chairman.
December 8th - the Donny Deutsch/Michael Steele showdown occurred when Deutsch asked Steele why Harry Reid’s remark that the obstruction in the civil rights debate is similar to the health care reform obstruction by Republicans is not true.
DEUTSCH: I’m still trying to understand why the analogies he’s made are wrong. Obviously, the issue here is that any great change throughout history has the naysayers saying “it’s not time, it’s not time.” So why was that an irrelevant analogy?
STEELE: I won’t even dignify that with a response.
DEUTSCH: What do you mean, dignify? It’s a question, it’s a genuine question.
STEELE: Next question.
DEUTSCH: It’s a genuine question.
STEELE: Next question. Come on. I’m sorry, sir. I’m not going to sit here and say it’s an appropriate comparison to slavery.
DEUTSCH: He’s not. He’s comparing it to dramatic change, and the naysayers to change.
STEELE: Whatever, whatever. Next question.
DEUTSCH: That’s a great response. Very, very intelligent, ..continue reading
Yesterday Trevor Francis the RNC communications director resigned.
There are a couple of stories about this resignation. The interesting one is that Francis was forced out because of Michael Steele’s ego. Steele felt that the RNC and specifically Steele did not receive enough credit for the Republican wins in NJ and VA. Francis was asked to take the fall.
Francis’ replacement is Alex Castellanos.
Castellanos has been a CNN contributor for a while and did not disclose to CNN that he was also being paid by the RNC and the insurance industry while the health care reform debate was raging. His comments about health care reform were apparently driven by his other bosses.
According to thinkprogress Castllanos wrote a memo in July that instructed Republicans on how to paint health care reform as “risky” and as an “experiment”. In the memo he also declared “If we slow this sausage-making process down, we can defeat it” and ..continue reading
