WASHINGTON (AP) -- Amid unrelenting criticism of how the Republican National Committee has spent donors' dollars, Chairman Michael Steele on Monday accepted the resignation of his chief of staff and allowed one of his senior advisers to exit the inner workings of his political machine. The turnover hinted at future changes that some top Republicans hoped would include the chairman himself.

The wrong guy is stepping down. Steele, the race pimp, needs to go.

Steele is as spineless as half the GOP delegation in Congress now. Get rid of the lot. They are doing NOTHING productive for the party.

What a disappointment. When Steele ran for governor of Maryland I thought he had a future ahead of him. Turns out, he's just a beltway flunkie, like so many republican functionaries who have failed in their sacred duties to serve this nation.

Hey Michael, if you can't get the difference between being a republican Chair and a 'rat shithead, then go, and join the shitheads across the aisle.

The electorate is primed to make Obama a one-term president. Trust the RNC and GOP leadership to take the focus off Obama’s faults and put it on incompetent, corrupt RNC leadership. Steele needs to quietly go away - it’s not all about him.

Freerepublic is the worst football team in history. 11 quarterbacks on the field at all times throwing “hail Mary’s” to no one every play.

America isn’t Freerepublic. You HAVE to attract the middle or lose. The accronym, “RINO” hurts us more than them. The perfect is the enemy of the good.

I didn’t call him a RINO. I called him a race pimp. Which he is. Oh, and worthless.

One of the really bad things about elevating an unqualified individual, who, like Steele, happens to be a minority, to a conservative leadership position is that once his unfitness for the position becomes apparent it is extremely difficult to remove him without charges of discrimination and racism being bandied about.

Time is short, ‘hinted at’ ain’t going to get the job done! Authentic leadership, authentic conservatives, authentic non-criminals, authentic character, authentic constitutional commitment, special interest free candidates are what are need now! We are facing tyranny in full bloom now!

Preachy with a touch of condescension. Not my flavor...

Steele’s problem isn’t that he’s a RINO. His problem is that his primary job is to market the GOP brand. He’s so consistently embarrassing that if he were a plant by the Democrats to purposely cause damage... I don’t know what he would do differently.

Well, I hope even those living in their mom’s basements take issue with race hustlers calling them racists for criticizing poor performance.

“You HAVE to attract the middle or lose. The accronym, “RINO” hurts us more than them. The perfect is the enemy of the good.”

Actually, the exact opposite is true. One of the biggest myths is that independents lie “between” Republicans and Democrats. They don’t. They respond very well to well articulated, principled beliefs. They respond very poorly to “inside the beltway” double talk.

This is the real reason behind Reagan’s appeal, and also why neither Bush was ever able to really win them over. RINOs lose, unless they are well established or have an easy opponent. Conservatives win, despite the fact that they receive little support from within the party.

I picture you hunkered down under a bridge, muttering to yourself in archaic Norse.

Isn’t there a third envelope, whose letter contains the advice, “Make 3 new envelopes for your successor”?

I think that this was envelope #2...

Steele IMHO was always a “me too” candidate not by himself but for the Republican Party...the minute BHO was elected the Pubbies had to have a black to head their party to show they weren’t racist either. When you have standards other than the best person for the job you get crap like this.

You can bet your ranch that OZERO has more than enough Dirt on this Dirtbag, STEELE, that whatever OZERO wants from STEELE, he Gets! STEELE really STINKS! and he thinks that by throwinghis Chief of Staff under the Bus, that will protect him!! That just confirms that the Deacy and Corruption went right to STEELE, himself!

I would question whether STEELE is “The PIMP?” or whether he is “The PROSTITUTE?” He is acting like OBOZO and the DNC has enough Dirt on Him, STEELE, that their Wishes are His Commands! RNC Committee Meeting in Hawaii while Obozo is vacationing there! Strippers, Prolifigate Spending, Horrific Statements in the Media designed to destroy RNC!
et al............
