Posted on 06/14/2014 4:06:36 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Eric Cantor, next Republican National Committee chairman?
Former RNC chair Michael Steele thinks it's a possibility after the House majority leader was defeated Tuesday in a Virginia Republican primary.
"With the upcoming presidential election, there's a lot of interest in Eric Cantor serving as national chairman of the RNC," Steele said Saturday on MSNBC's "Up With Steve Kornacki."
"In fact I think he'd be interesting because he started dialogues on poverty and some other issues that were sort of outside of what Republicans have traditionally talked about. So he could bring a very interesting voice into that space," he said.
GOP = The Peter Principle in action.
Haley Barbour. Eric Cantor. Why not Karl Rove ?
The hits just keep on comin’
Dead wood floats
Always double-down on stupid. It’s the law.
‘Lot Of Interest’ In Eric Cantor Serving As RNC Chairman
Heck yeah; let a loser lead the losers.
So does a turd.
Cantor should compromise and consider a run for Governor if he is not the most terrible choice, in 2017.
This is a Cantor supporter’s idea:
“This Shak Hill supporter was packing heat on the floor of the Roanoke Convention Center. At least this weapon wasnt one of the huge assault weapons seen at the Texas State Republican Convention held over the weekend at Fort Worth Convention Center.”
After Gruber defeated Cobb.
The RNC is run by dumb, arrogant out of touch RINO elitists, for sure. But would they really get that in-your-face to the constitutional conservatives? Amazing
I wish more people would get out to their state conventions and load the RNC with tea partiers.
Usually a thousand or so votes are enough to do it.
Don’t be asking me for any money with this RINO in charge.
WTF? Does the GOP have Stockholm Syndrome?
Actually, Mike, no, there’s pretty nearly no interest in that.
A lot of interest? By whom. Eric Cantor? Hillary Clinton? Mitt Romney? Surely not any conservatives or teaparty members.
Sorry Mikey. You don't fight poverty by importing MORE OF IT to the United States. Can't you guys think once in a while? Knock off all of the politics for a while and do some serious thinking! World poverty has been the U.S. taxpayers' problem long enough! Let some other country pick up the ball and run with it for a while. We've wasted enough of our money fighting this hopeless "war on poverty".
Potential Republican candidates include former Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling, Congressmen Eric Cantor and Randy Forbes, former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie, and state senator Mark Obenshain.
Talk about a group of people who are tone deaf —
When are the people going to realize they are being tag teamed and by buying a ticket to sit and watch they are the real suckers.
Meghan McCain, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Charlie Crist should be in the lineup, too, shouldn’t they?
This headline made me laugh out loud.
Why should NWO waste time/money blackmailing fresh puppets when they already have Cantor the trained chimp?
Just change his job title and keep the MozzComm train rolling.
I’d like to see Dave Agema in the chair just because they hate him for being honest about gay marriage and breathing.
The GOP IS the Peter Principle.
Eric, take a hint and just go away for a while, a very long while.
Has Steele lost his mind?
That otta help Tea Party fund raising.....
What a mistake that would be.
I think they have been partaking of the loco weed too much.
Unfortunately, the country club lemmings will follow these fools over the edge.
Cantor has long been known as one of the best fund-raisers in the country, and not just for himself.
Conservative Republicans have been talking about poverty for decades.
We just dont talk about giving the poor cell phones to get them out of poverty.
We talk about getting them jobs by getting the government out of the way of job creators. Things like cutting taxes and reducing the regulation overload creates jobs and reduces poverty.
Things like welfare and endless unemployment benefits do not reduce poverty. Importing the poor from third world countries increases poverty.
We need a Republican party chairman that understands these basic principles and can articulate them effectively.
Can’t these cretins get real jobs!?
yes, Mike, the GOP never talks about poverty
That because the GOP hatin’ on poor people
Just ask Nancy Pelosi
Sure. Choose a loser, so he can bring his style of losing to the whole party. Makes perfect sense.
You got it!
We who live in Dist. 7 of Virginia showed the nation how much we think of Cantor by rejecting him for a no-name, money-less but clear thinking conservative.......
So the GOP decides to give us the finger and make him head of the party........duh! Is there no common sense left in the GOP at all?!?
One thing is clear. They are not only dumb - but deaf.......
What is WRONG with these people?
Why I left the Republican party is focused in this headline.
Once this crap gets in your blood it makes you feel like they owe you a living. Sort of like welfare only at a higher pay scale.
That’s a joke....right?
The way I see this either 1) the GOP is too damn dumb to realize they can’t win without conservatives or 2) they don’t care if they lose because they all work for the same globalists anyway.
I’ll take #2 for 2 billion, Alex
In light of the actions of the GOP determined to assist the Democrats, protect them from prosecution and attacking their base, It seems logical that anyone insisting on voting for them is as much a threat to America as they are.
And they should be treated accordingly. With open scorn.
See: Hillary Clinton or Haley Barbour.
If they’re that damn stupid, we need to say a final goodbye to the republicans.
It truly is the Stupid Party.
Heck, just roll Arlen Specter’s casket up to the dais. That should be all it takes...
“’there’s a lot of interest in Eric Cantor serving as national chairman of the RNC,’ Steele said Saturday on MSNBC’s “Up With Steve Kornacki.””
In order to ensure Bush/Dole/Bush/McCain/Romney redux?
Another telling clue that the RNC is just another
branch of the DNC.
