Steele on Thin Ice [rdbrewer]
— Open Blogger

Republican National Committee members are set to vote in two months.

A significant bloc of Republican National Committee members wants embattled chairman Michael Steele to step aside, but the rank and file have failed to settle on a clear alternative, according to Associated Press interviews with committee members.

More than four dozen interviews with members of the 168-member central committee found fear that a badly damaged Steele could emerge from the wreckage of a knockdown, drag-out fight to head the party as it challenges President Barack Obama in 2012. While most agree that Steele's time has been rough — and costly — the members also recognize that a leadership fight could overshadow gains that Republicans made in the midterm elections.

For the same reasons Steele's leadership was "rough and costly," we're looking at a leadership fight. Because it's all about Michael Steele. And since it's all about Michael Steele, there is little hope he will bow out and spare the party a leadership battle. After all, it's his time to shine.

2 I hope they go with someone truly qualified, and don't try to make the press like them by going the affirmative action route.  (Note:  I am NOT saying there are no qualified, excellent candidates who are black, just that that should not be the first priority.)

With so many missed opportunities, Steele should have been replaced many moons ago. Not that he could do anything directly other than talk, he could have been a very effective burr under the saddle of the Dims, considering the way they've governed over the past two years.

I'd like to nominate SarahCuda for the position. It would serve her well and she could be the official kingmaker. It would also take her off the 2012 presidential ticket, which I think she would lose. Don't get me wrong, she's very effective, but she needs a few more years to rehab her image, which she is currently doing with things like her Alaska show and Fox appearances.

they want him to step aside?

Hey, I've got an idea: since his term is up in a couple of months, why doesn't one of you run against Steele?

8 Maybe had the bush crew and rove cronies not sniped at Sarah non stop for the past year, she would help them out by calling Steele and being her gracious self telling him how he had a great run, but we need new blood in there and that he still will be an important figure, he can go out on top after winning 60+ seats. Maybe she would do it anyway, but she has no reason to help them out at all. Remember, these are the people who blame her for not winning 12 senate seats and 100 house seats I guess LOL. Odd, when a group trashes you, you are not as likely to help them.

Agreed.  My opinion of Rove has decidedly turned negative with his failure to support femal conservatives.  He's got a stick up his ass when it comes to women.

The same things that bedevil anyone not currently a Palin fanboy -- occasional malapropisms, the relentlessly chatty, operate-mouth-before-engaging-brain quality of too many interviews -- would work against her as Repub leader.

Besides, it'd take time she doesn't have to spare, and make her far less visible.

Steele has to go. Replace him with some hack who knows how to reach out to the fatcats and is well-trained in the art of mouthing platitudes on the few occasions when he/she has to appear in public.

Posted by: MrScribbler at November 26, 2010 12:11 PM (Ulu3i)

15 He really does need to go. But the reason they can't find anyone is because the job itself is shit and nobody with a real political chance wants it.

Another question is why are they having another meeting so soon after the last one in which they made out like they fixed the shitty primary rules.

Perhaps they ALL should go.

16 My opinion of Rove has decidedly turned negative with his failure to support femal conservatives.

My opinion of Robe went to shit much earlier than that. When Bush allowed that "Bush lied" meme to go on forever without an answer I blamed him squarely for that. That is his major function as a political adviser and he blew it. That and all the other similar things that made Bush's presidency a squish can be laid at his feet.

And perhaps that is why he doesn't like real conservative huh?

Perhaps it was a reminder to get the Dream Act passed?

19 I do think Steele could have done a better job with GOTV. Palin even said we need a much stronger operation when it comes to GOTV in 2012, and while she did not say Steele by name, of course that is partially on him. Replacing him is fine with me, but I say the replacement should be solely focused on GOTV especially in the swing states. It seems like most of the GOTV these days on our side is just done ad hoc by conservative groups/websites/ and talk radio. While Obama and co. have huge orgs that bus people in, sign people up, etc. We come close to matching them on that and I think we win!

22 A problem that any RNC person will have is that the grass roots have basically given up on the party and are refusing to send money in. Thank you Bush and Rove! Getting back to principles is the best way to have a revitalized RNC where people will send their hard earned money to.

Posted by: Dan at November 26, 2010 12:23 PM (1jzSs)

23 He really does need to go. But the reason they can't find anyone is because the job itself is shit and nobody with a real political chance wants it.

The Dems had the right model: co-chairs.  One goes on the TV and cheerleads for the party and goes to rubber-chicken dinners raising cash.  The other wears the green eyeshade and tells the first one what his budget is.

In any case, I think the new RNC chair should be somebody I've never heard of.

He'll have competition. Republicans won so many seats in Ohio that even with redistricting control someone is going to draw the short end of the straw. Going for the Senate race will be a consolation prize opportunity to which he or she will likely avail themselves.

72 Best thing for Steele to do for his image at this point is not to run for re-election. Also think he should address the media explaining that the future of the party means more to him than his place in it. With some good PR and hard work over the next 4 years he could look into running in 2016.

86 My opinion of Rove has decidedly turned negative with his failure to support female conservatives.  He's got a stick up his ass when it comes to women.

Well, I think Rove has a pretty good sense of things.  Look at what happened to female conservatives/Republicans: The media eviscerates them without mercy (O'Donnell, Angle, Bachmann, Fiorina, Whitman). 

If you accept that Rove is a pure consultant and not an ideologue or cheerleader, then it makes sense.  He knows what can happen to female conservatives in blue/purple states.  So, he sees an easy win being lost.

OK, that's the best Devils Advocate I can do.

I don't think Blackwell has ANY plans.

I'm not busting your balls, I just don't like wild speculation.

It irritates me.

89 15 As long as the Republicans in power get their free trips to Europe, their hundred dollar lunches, and their golden rolodex full of money-making connections, they couldn't care less what happens to this country.

90 I said it before and I'll say it again-Dick Armey. Well, so long as he'll fall in line strongly against illegal immigration, and can at least try to come to an accord with the religious right (mainly, Dobson). He's been Republican Majority Leader, so he's familiar with the way the establishment Party works. Plus, he's an experienced fund-raiser, and has been one of the top Tea-Party supporters. Somebody like him might be able to mold all the factions together into a cohesive whole. Of course, there's the question, would he touch it with a ten foot pole.

Nope, both sides do it. When the Democrats do it, we call them Commies. When the Republicans do it, we call them...Republicans.

And as for the fucknut comment, you're a real tough guy calling names over the interweb. Probably still living in mommy's basement.

92 After all, it's his time to shine.

I'm still waiting for some kind of glare or reflection to appear...
