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.
We can only hope.
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.
Let me know when Steele is stepping down..
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.
Let me know when Steele is stepping down..
Me, too. Meanwhile.....I’ll be standing here.....over in the right corner....giving my $$$$ to the most conservative candidates. Cheers!
I didn’t call him a RINO. I called him a race pimp. Which he is. Oh, and worthless.
STEELE is the ABORTION and the DISASTER! When He throws “HIS” Chief of STAFF Under the BUS, You Know that All of this Corruption, Decay, Fraud, Arrogance and Ostentatious raudulent Spending was clearly Directed RIGHT FROM THE CEO, HIMSELF! STEELE isn’t worth his Weight in Cow Manure anymore! He was GIVEN the Gold RING and has tried to Steal IT from AMERICA! Dispicable and Disgusting!!

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.
“The turnover hinted at future changes that some top Republicans hoped would include the chairman himself.”
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!
I picture you in a basement at your mom’s home with models of Star Wars fighters.
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.
The people who will accuse us of racism are the dems and i could give a shit what the dems think or say..
I also believe the majority of Americans have seen through this bull....
“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 in a basement at your moms home with models of Star Wars fighters”
I picture you hunkered down under a bridge, muttering to yourself in archaic Norse.
Every one who approved spending dollars on the lesbian fest should exit the organization.
“THEY” are easy to spot, aren’t they?
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...
He was GIVEN the Gold RING and has tried to Steal IT from AMERICA! Dispicable and Disgusting!!
He has a lot more in common with Ozero than playing the race victim card.
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 werent racist either. When you have standards other than the best person for the job you get crap like this.
Yes I’m sure Ron Paul would do a better job. I think I will log off until December.
Don’t call us. We’ll call you. Maybe.
You’ll be missed... by someone... I’m sure... maybe...
DAMN !!!!!! I was hoping it was Steele ,,, Shucks !
The windage is good ,,, make an ajusttment to the elevation and eliminate REAL problem .
You don’t like that Steele is black? I don’t understand.
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!
Welcome to FreeRepublic! Newbie!Sure took You a long time to start launching Rocks..... I absolutely disagree with your negative accusations!
