Skip to comments.Love Or Hate Sarah, She’s The Best Pick For RNC Chair
Posted on 07/11/2010 11:39:38 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
In tracking the response to the launch of the site and petition to draft Sarah Palin for the Chairmanship of the RNC, we have seen varied reactions ranging from enthusiasm, to curiosity, to skepticism, to racist bigotry, to deafening silence.
One common denominator in near uniformity, however, is the consensus that Michael Steele is, at best, ineffective as Chair of the RNC for one or more of the following reasons.
Steele V. Limbaugh Praising ACORNs Bertha Lewis Steele Doesnt Know If GOP Ready To Lead RNC chairman doubts GOP will win back the House this November Republican National Committee spent nearly $2,000 at West Hollywood strip club Voyeur Harsh Criticism [Of Steele] Is Based on Race Michael Steele: GOP Has Not Been the Most Welcoming to Immigrants (Video) Update: Polls Prove Steele Wrong Michael Steeles Unwinnable War RNC has still not been reimbursed for the $2,000 spent on entertaining donors at a lesbian/bondage nightclub in West Hollywood.
The only questions remaining are when to replace Michael Steele, and with whom?
As to when, some people suggest that it should not be until the end of his current term. For our position, please see the petition:
THEREFORE, We, the undersigned, submit that Sarah Palin, as soon as is practicably possible, ought to replace Michael Steele and take over the reins as Chair of the Republican National Committee.
As to who, the answer can only be Sarah Palin. Why? Notwithstanding the reasons we have outlined here and here, it is because she will raise more money and command more control over the media narrative than ANY other Republican in the field. Seating Sarah would also set the Progressive-Democrats on their heels, forcing them to ratchet up their vile PR smear campaigns.
The problem for the Progressive smear machine, and they know it, is that the jig is up. More and more Americans are becoming aware of the Alinksy song and dance the Progressives have been running. Their charges of racism and labels of stupid and evil grow less and less effective every day.
The advantage for the Right is that the Progressives have no other strategy than to go vicious, so the Left will likely double down on the tactic. Doing so will only expose them as hypocrites when it comes to their claim of righteously elevating the narrative above cheap personal attacks, and working to solve our nations problems.
Who more than Sarah Palin can inspire the Left to so publicly display their ugliness and contempt for American civility?
Other names have been floated as potential replacements for Steele, and for a variety of reasons, as terrific as any of them are, none of them is as qualified for the position leading into 2012 as is Sarah Palin.
Fred Thompson Should have been elevated to President. He could raise money and inspire people (i.e., deliver the Tea Party), but he doesnt have the ability to own the media cycle like Sarah does.
Mitt Romney Need we say more than Romney Care? If we must, he doesnt have the ability to own the media cycle like Sarah does, and likely wouldnt be able to raise as much as either Thompson or Palin.
Liz Cheney We are very big fans of her, but again, she cannot possibly raise more money, or own the news cycle like Sarah can.
Karl Rove He is not the appropriate choice for leader of this organization. Karl is a gifted strategist and adviser to the leaders of organizations. In that capacity, he could be very helpful to the RNC.
There is nobody who can raise as much cash, and affect as much of the media narrative, all while exposing the Left, as can Sarah Palin. That makes her the perfect candidate to replace the current lame-duck Chairman.
If you agree, please sign our petition to Draft Sarah Palin for RNC Chair.
As I mentioned when this was posted earlier, about an hour ago, why would she deliberately sideline herself? Why would she go along with people who want to sideline her? What the RNC needs is someone who is low profile and effective, in the mold of Haley Barbour. The RNC chairmans function is to get Republicans elected, not to make statements and take controversial positions on public policy.
I agree, at least as far as Sarah Palin is concerned. She needs to continue speaking for herself, and not tied to a RNC position. Fred Thompson would be good, seeing he's no longer active in politics, but his friendship with McCain is a little troublesome to me.
Thompson's clearly the best person for the job, in my estimation. But, I think he'd rather act, for whatever reason. Party Chairman is tough, demanding job.
I agree. The problem with the RNC chair today is that he's far too outspoken and often laughably so. Her taking the position and using it properly would effectively muzzle her. We need her independence.
I’d like to see Fred doing more than he’s doing...that’s for sure. Plus, I’d like for him to STOP doing those stupid commercials for REVERSE mortgages. He’s losing some major credibility due to those ads.
With that said... it’s hard for me to comprehend why he didn’t get more support during his bid for the Presidency.
Never happen; makes too much sense.
The cold, hard facts are that the position of RNC chairman usually leads you on to a better job as a used car salesman, process server, or maybe even Governor of a poor Southern state.
The DNC chairman usually does little better ~ McAuliffe lost a lot of money trying to get a job as Virginia Governor, and former Governor Howard Dean of Vermont could probably run for Governor again ~ but I don't think he cares for the job.
Rarely does a RNC or DNC chairman show up in the top 10 political commenter but several of them have become Postmaster General!
I think the move into RNC chair would permanently remove Sarah Palin from any future she might have as a Republican.
Ditto and ditto. This is a transparent attempt to get her to “sit down and shut up”, as RNC Chair she’s have to embrace some policies she doesn’t personally support, regurgitate the “party line” rather the speaking her own mind, and give up the ability to generate substantial income for her family.
Anyone who takes this suggestion seriously doesn’t have a clue.
I’m a loan officer with a Federally Chartered Bank who does mortgages in all 50 states and DC. What’s wrong with seniors over 62 years of age taking out a portion of their equity to use as they see fit? With a reverse mortgage they have no further payments and get to keep the home until the passing away of both borrowers (in the case of a couple). No loan product is beneficial for everyone, but many older people have limited retirement income.
Please Sarah DO NOT bite on the Piece of rotting flesh that IS the “RNC”! They SUCK!
I dont like this idea at all. I like Sarah free to distinguish between conservatives and RINOs.
As for Mitt, I wouldn’t mind him at the RNC instead of on the presidential trail. He has proved himself a genius at raising money.
Sorry for that mixed up reply. I must've used the wrong html tag. Here's what I wanted to say...
Anyone who takes this suggestion seriously likely wants her gagged.
The democrats would be very happy if Sarah took any position but the one she should choose, and thats to be POTUS.
Hilary already has her flying monkey’s out doing dirty deeds, gonna be the catfight of the century with Sarah Palin going against Hilary Clinton.
I didn't mean to imply that he was lazy, or that I think he's lazy. But, he was on the View a few weeks ago as well as the Daily Show, and he made it pretty clear his political life was over, at least to the extent of doing it every day.
I just don't think he wants the grueling hours it takes to be a successful Party Chairman.
The RNC Chair would be a great spot for Pissant’s buddy - Duncan Hunter, Sr. I tease Pissant a lot, but on this I am as serious as a heart attack.
