    Former Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Michael Steele is floating the idea of running for his old post again. In an interview on C-SPAN on Sunday, Steele was first asked if he thought current RNC Chairman Reince Priebus should run for another term. Priebus has suggested that he is leaning toward running for reelection.

    For the most part everything played out as I feared in this February 16th, 2010 article Coming Sequel to the Romulan-GOP Schism. The thesis of our party splitting our conservative votes over multiple candidates, thereby electing the ONE weak candidate in the race became the reality. The pundits of Fox News who are mainly responsible for this outcome are now telling us we need to further abandon the fundamental principles upon which our party was founded. We need to further -become- the Democrat Party to defeat them as though this were simply a sporting event devoid of any moral rectitude....
  • America needs Mitt Romney — a real leader

    The Washington Times ^ | 11/5/12 | Reince Priebus
    With just hours to go before the polls close on this historic election season, the candidates and their campaigns have made their closing arguments. Voters will soon render their verdict, and the choice seems starker than at any point in this race. Mitt Romney has offered America a path to a better future and a detailed, specific “Plan for a Stronger Middle Class.” His policies would create 12 million new jobs and increase take-home pay. They would restore fiscal sanity to the nation’s capital and opportunity to an economy that has lacked it for four long years. Mr. Romney has...
  • RNC flush with cash for endgame blitz

    A late surge of support and months of restrained spending have left the Republican National Committee flush with cash with little time to spend it — $68 million as of Oct. 17, which was nearly seven times the amount the Democratic National Committee had in the bank. Adding in the cash from other presidential campaign committees, the mismatch still was stark: $156 million for Mitt Romney and his GOP allies to $94 million for President Obama and his allies. State Republican parties also had 50 percent more cash than their Democratic counterparts, according to an analysis by The Washington Times....
  • Wal-Mart boss Sam Walton funding Obama big time

    10/22/2012 3:47:27 PM PDT · by Evil Slayer · 77 replies
    Can we stop pretending that Barack Obama’s candidacy is some grass-roots uprising? Obama’s campaign has outspent Romney’s campaign. The Democratic National Committee has outspent the Republican National Committee. While Romney’s SuperPAC (Restore our Future), has outspent Obama’s SuperPAC (Priorities USA), that $40 million Romney SuperPAC edge doesn’t come close to making up for the Obama campaign’s $180 million edge. There is legally undisclosed spending going on here, and there’s reason to believe Romney benefits from more of it than Obama, but that’s not conclusive, and we don’t know how big Romney’s edge is in that category. Obama argues that his...

    The domestic violence in Shepard’s past is both shocking and repulsive in detail. On February 15, 1998, police were called to then-Mrs. Shepard’s house (the couple had been separated since June of the previous year) by a girlfriend. According to the police report (.pdf file), Mrs. Shepard said of her husband: Read on. Joseph entered my home. I told him to leave. He came up to me looking angry. I put my hands up to protect my breasts as they are sore (cancer). He has hit me before in the breast. He grabbed my wrist and arm and pushed me...

    Talk about a mismatch. The RNC will be able to help out many marginal campaigns with that $83 million while Dems will have to pick and choose carefully which races they will invest in. Politico: ***** The Democratic National Committee was unable to keep up with the Republican National Committee's fundraising again in September, despite taking out $10.5 million in loans. The DNC raised $20.3 million in September, including the loans, and only $3.7 million of its total fundraising came from individuals and political action committees. The rest came from transfers and offsetting operating expenditures. As of Sept. 30, the...

    The Democratic National Committee was unable to keep up with the Republican National Committee’s fundraising again in September, despite taking out $10.5 million in loans. The DNC raised $20.3 million in September, including the loans, and only $3.7 million of its total fundraising came from individuals and political action committees. The rest came from transfers and offsetting operating expenditures. As of Sept. 30, the DNC reported having $4.6 million in the bank and $20.5 million in total debt – almost double the $11.8 million it owed at the end of August. The committee owes about $5.5 million of its total...

    What a difference two years makes! In the 2010 midterm elections, the Republican National Committee failed to capitalize on grassroots anger with effective fundraising, leaving them in the hole when a party needs to fund get-out-the-vote (GOTV) efforts most. Only the intervention of outside groups saved Republicans from blowing a historic shot. The Democratic National Committee was relatively flush with cash — which didn’t stop Democrats from getting pounded in the midterms, but may have limited their losses, especially in the Senate. Two years later, the RNC and DNC have changed positions — and this time, the DNC won’t be...

      National GOP establishment lavishly funding liberal homosexual activist Richard Tisei for Congress in Massachusetts. Has long record of outrageous activity. Is this a warning where the Republican Party will go in the next few years?

    The Republican establishment in Washington is pouring enormous amounts of money -- over a million dollars -- into Massachusetts to elect an aggressive, anti-family homosexual activist to Congress. In Massachusetts, Richard Tisei is known as an openly "gay" liberal Republican politician who ran for Lt. Governor in 2010. Prior to that as a State Senator, among other things he worked to successfully block the people's right to vote on the Marriage Amendment. Tisei is the only Republican Congressional candidate in Massachusetts to receive such support from the national Republican Congressional campaign! Flood of expensive TV ads Anyone watching TV in...

    The New York Times ^ | 10/6/12 | John Elgion
    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — For establishment Republicans, it is decision time in the Missouri Senate race. Should they return to Representative Todd Akin’s corner? Many quickly withdrew their support for Mr. Akin weeks ago after his controversial comments about abortion and belief that victims of “legitimate rape” have a biological mechanism to fight off pregnancy, hoping to force him aside so another Republican candidate could battle the Democratic incumbent, Senator Claire McCaskill. But Mr. Akin called their bluff. He stayed in the race, reckoning that election math would oblige them to stick with him. Now, with Mr. Akin’s name legally...

    The National Republican Senatorial Committee issued a statement Wednesday clarifying its support for Rep. Todd Akin in the Missouri Senate race and suggesting it might spend money to help elect him, after saying a month ago that it would not do so. “There is no question that for Missourians who believe we need to stop the reckless Washington spending, rein-in the role of government in people’s lives, and finally focus on growing jobs in this country, that Todd Akin is a far more preferable candidate than liberal Sen. Claire McCaskill,” NRSC executive director Rob Jesmer said. “As with every Republican...

    As a Republican, I truly wonder if Romney's heart is in this. He's running a campaign that mirrors that of someone running for high school class president. Worse yet, he's trying to play nice with a fire-breathing dragon! Who is Romney kidding? Not me! I see no fight, and where there is no fight, there is no heart! I do see a nice guy. Is that what you want to say at the end of a losing campaign, which is supposedly the last opportunity to save our republic? That he was nice? That we were nice? Sorry, but my family...

    Paint Your Wagon! Clint Eastwood just dropped another nuke on Obama. In the latest issue of The Carmel Pine Cone (Sept 7-13, 2012) American's favorite actor said, "President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people," The Pine Cone is the weekly newspaper for Carmel and the Monterey Peninsula. Clint Eastwood was the Mayor of Carmel, California from 1986 to 1988 and didn't run for a second term. Clint was elected in a landslide with 72% of the vote. President Ronald Reagan called Clint to congratulate him on his victory. Mayor Eastwood accomplished all of his campaign...
