Steele has promised to deliver amnesty votes.
WSJ ^

By Laura Meckler

So what exactly happened when the chairman of the Republican National Committee met with immigration activists Wednesday? According to a news release put out by the activists, he said he would try and recruit Republican support for comprehensive immigration legislation. The RNC says he made no such commitment. The immigration activist who led the meeting said he did, but then backpedaled after being signaled by a staffer that he may have gone too far.

Did he take him to a strip club? Steele has to go. Think we’re pissed now? Wait until they ram through amnesty.

We can’t wait for that. What is the RNC’s number? Steele must be fired this week.

Who ever thought this motormouth would be a good chair of the RNC? After hearing him sub for Bill Bennett a few times, I knew he was one of those who just couldn’t stop talking, and we’ve seen that illustrated time and again.

If he made this promise then it’s well past time for him to be replaced. Or if that is the thinking of the RNC and the Beltway Republicans, then I’m sure many will not care to send them a single cent.

PAST TIME TO REPLACE STEELE, regardless.

Steele has NO business promising anything or even indicating anything!

He’s made several mistakes in the past, but this one has to be the deal breaker.

ENOUGH!

He is probably the worst RNC chairman in recent history.

The votes the democrats lost by passing obamacare will be more than made up for when they pass amnesty. Incumbent republicans are thinking they can secure their seats too, by supporting amnesty.

Watch for another “executive order” that will guarantee no illegals get amnesty without going back “to the end of the line”.

We are screwed.

YOU’RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.

The RNC went “politically correct” and they should have selected KEN BLACKWELL!

From the article:

"Pramila Jayapal, executive director of OneAmerica, the largest immigrant rights coalition in Washington state, said that Steele committed himself to a “holistic bipartisan consensus on immigration reform” and said he believes the Republican party should be “reaching out.”

Who the hell is "Pramila Jayapal?" And what's up with this "holistic" crap?

It's really simple Mikey and Jayapal; these people are here ILLEGALLY, they are breaking America's laws, and they should be DEPORTED.

Hey Steele! You're a jerk, and McCain and Graham swore an oath:

He had no business attending and playing “senator.”

We already have Lindsey -fool-tool- Grahma for that.

FIRE STEELE. REPLACE HIM WITH A REAL REPUBLICAN.

I get things in the mail from the RNC almost weekly (although I’ve always been a registered independent and never joined the RNC).

It all goes in the trash. Contributing to individual candidates is where its at. Starve the RINOs.

To me, this is a whole lot more disturbing that whose bar tab got paid off in a Hollywierd club. Also why I will not be giving any cash to the RNC when they come calling, as they will.

Who ever thought this motormouth would be a good chair of the RNC?

For starters, a whole lot of FReepers who thought he was qualified because he was black with an "R" behind his name.

They are not "immigrants" when they're here illegally.

Don't worry. Sure a huge majority opposes open boarders NOW, but after it is put into effect, people come to see how wise our exalted leaders are who will go down in history as Transformative Beings of Light.

Hmmm. Met with a group called “FIRM”.

Perhaps he thought it was a “gentlemen’s club”?

If the RNC thought they got holy hell in 2007, thay ain’t seen nothing yet from conservative groups, talk radio, and the conservative base!!! THERE WILL BE ARMAGEDDON IF THIS BILL EVER COMES CLOSE TO A VOTE!!!!

DEMMIES chose to walk the plank over the health care bill....will the repubbies be THAT dumb and walk the plank over immigration???? If they think they can scheme and make inroads with the illegals, then they got another think coming.

Filibuster the damn thing.

I bet that a video of this meeting would vindicate the immigration activists. Steele loves to agree with the opposition.
