Skip to comments.GOP catfight: Michael Steele calls Reince Priebus 'numb nuts'
Posted on 03/19/2013 4:03:01 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
The catfight between former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele and his replacement, Reince Priebus, has reached screech level, with Steele belittling the party's new focus on minorities as old news.
Appearing on the "Andrea Tantaros Show," a nationally syndicated radio show, Steele called the GOP establishment that on Monday unveiled a $10 million minority outreach effort a bunch of "numb nuts" for ignoring the plan he instituted four years ago.
Steele also sounded ready to beat up Priebus. Asked by Tantaros who would win in a cage fight, Steele said, "Oh, no question, I would clean his clock." How? "Just one knock on the head. It's done."
The Steele-Priebus battle is, in a way, a repeat of their 2011 duel for the RNC chairmanship......

Bottom line is the GOP had success in 2010 on Steele’s watch, while Priebus has been an absolute disaster. Frankly, why he still has the job, I don’t know.
Hell, I’m available and I have clear message for fund raising...
I call them both jackwagons.
No kidding, I think most of us could offer a clear message.
Who the hell decided to hire Pee Wee Herman anyway?
I thought Priebus sounded like he was auditioning for a job at MSDNC.
I call them dumb and dumber.
We won in spite of Steele, not because of him. He was a pimp for the liberal party establishment. Priebus’s success was in 2010 as chair of the WI GOP, where he did do a good job. He was not able to parlay that success into 2012, given that the party establishment was fine to run a ringer against Zero. He should not have been reelected, though.
I agree, Steele!
Who would have guessed the GOP would pick someone EVEN WORSE than you!
Republican figures always compare the government to private business, saying that if Obama was a Wall Street tycoon, he’d be in prison. We should apply that standard to ourselves. When someone cannot get the job done, you fire them. Is Priebus a conservative? Is he a RINO? It makes no difference. He’s a loser. He sucked at his job, and its time to can his ass.
This is gonna be great..a girlie fight!!!!
Not only that, steele used the position as a self agrandisment and enrichment post.
Living large on the rnc dime
Priebus is a FAILURE...an ABSOLUTE FAILURE!!
I would have guess such. Besides both parties owned by the some elites, this ensures that no competition is needed because again the elites will select the prez. Before the Klintoons I have stated that each & every election, until a collapse, we will get worse leaders on a continuing basis. Now the Supreme Court ain't worth a bucket of warm spit.
They’re both worthless . . . total waste of money . . . no fire in the belly . . . RINOs from the start
Will we ever learn?
Heh. Michael Steele, for one, is always more sensible when he's out of office than when he's in.
Michael Steele = “nutless” idiot
I have been, ONCE, on the receiving end of someone calling me
“numbnuts”, and I considered it the WORST kind of man-to-man
insult imaginable. Michael Steele, IMHO, was far worse than anything I’ve seen or heard about from Reince Priebus.
Priebus, though, has started to get lots of flak from disgruntled Conservatives,so maybe he’s proved he’s just as feckless as Steele. We need somebody stronger than both of them. At least Priebus hasn’t proposed integrating rap “artistry” into the GOP outreach.The only difference between them may be that “leadership” is all that much more urgent now.
