Republican Chairman Steele makes ‘fire Pelosi’ bus stop for Pompeo campaign
Wichita Eagle ^ | 27 September 2010 | Dion Lefler

Posted on 09/27/2010 10:36:06 PM PDT by Kansas58

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele made a stop in Wichita on his “Fire Nancy Pelosi” bus tour Monday, exhorting about 200 enthusiastic Republicans to work to elect Mike Pompeo in the 4th Congressional District.

“This is your moment, this organic movement that we’ve witnessed coming from the people over the past year,” Steele said. “It’s not manufactured in some board room or in some Fifth Avenue marketing firm. It comes from moms and dads, grandmas and grandads who are fed up, who have had enough.

It was a GREAT crowd, I am thinking closer to 300 than 200, but the media ALWAYS undercounts conservatives and overcounts liberals. Take a look at the comments. See if you can figure out who I am, on the Eagle Blog! :)

If they counted Steele then it was an overcount.

Hey
I appreciate his efforts.

Especially with the Left playing the “race card” every time they get the chance!

Lets not be part of a circular firing squad, OK?

Until November, loyal Republicans should all target DEMOCRATS!

Conservatives going after liberal moles is not a bad thing.

Steele does and says a lot of stupid things, but this is a good idea. I like that he is injecting this SF commie pinko into these so called moderate Dim races. Plus you know that the Red Queen is just seething that some dopey Repub is openly mocking her to her subjects.

To me, there will ALWAYS be Republican leaders who are not as conservative as I am, on the issues.

However? As long as those Republican leaders are willing to FIGHT for Conservatives, in November -— I give them a pass after the Primary.

I appreciate what Steele is doing. ESPECIALLY in the Kansas 4th, it will make a huge difference, IMHO!

We need a “Fire Michael Steele” bus tour. He’s already proven that he’s worthless RINO countless times.

GROW UP!

Yes, Steele has done and said some things that I don't like, but this “Fire Pelosi” tour is a GREAT idea!

Be big enough to give credit where credit is due.

It is entirely possible that Steele is a bigger man than you are, if you can not find it in your heart to encourage someone who IS trying to help the cause, at this moment.

You sound petty.

Absolutely!

I think Steele should GO to Nancy’s District, just to see what kind of crowd he can pull!

It will tick her off.

Conservatives come down pretty hard on Steele but his track record on winning elections is pretty good.

She believes that the momentum is with the Dems, and insisted that the light at the end of the tunnel wasn't an oncoming train.

Pelosi is an enemy to our country.

USING OUR OWN TAX MONEY TO STIMULATE OUR DEMISE.

We remember the day you walked up the steps of our Capitol with that great big gavel in your hands Nancy. We remember the smirk on your fugly face while you were telling us to shove it - Nancy. We remember how you locked arms with your fellow socialists and told America to stick it - Nancy. Well guess what Nancy - America is 5 weeks away from taking that smirk and that gavel and shoving them right up where the sun don't shine - Nancy. Hope you enjoy it...

There's dumb - there's dumber - then there's Pelosi

"...who IS trying to help the cause, at this moment." The key words are "at this moment."

Stupid people like you are why RINO a-holes like Steele can hold on to their positions.

Stupid people like you are why Republicans can sometimes pull defeat out of the mouth of victory.

We will take care of Steele, one way or the other, when the time comes.

Now is NOT the time.

That's only because he sees a pink slip in his immediate future. I agree, too little, too late.

I say, let Steele make his pretty, insincere speeches. Maybe he can go on tour with McCain, another faux conservative. I still won’t give a dime to the RNC as long as he’s in charge.

It stopped in my town the other day, the bus was great looking it had “need a job fire Pelosi” written in giant letters on the side.

About 150-200 people showed up to listen to Steele.

That's what he's doing with this tour. He's seen the parade, and is running to get to the front of it.

His real purpose is to put himself in a position where he can claim credit for the inevitable Republican victory.....and thus save his own job when they vote for a new RNC Chair in January. It ain't gonna work - he's toast.

Ok
He has made lots of mistakes, but -—

Right now, he is doing far more good than you are doing, with your gripes and unhelpful complaints.

This is the General Election cycle.

Rove was wrong to shoot in the wrong direction.

SO ARE YOU!

Wow - I should STFU? That's really democratic!

I'll bet you still like Newt and make excuses for him too.

Ok, don’t STFU and continue to be a disloyal shill for the DemCraps, while making a fool of yourself at the same time. Also, you obviously don’t follow the threads around here or you would know my thoughts about Newt.

Steele ain’t perfect, but he’s mending his ways and making efforts to $h!tc@n the Pelosi’s of Congress. If you don’t like that, then you are at the wrong website.

Mr. Steele appeared? Does this mean we have six more weeks of out of control RINO spending?

Would you TRY to focus on the enemy?

DEMOCRATS do not like what Steele is doing, which tells me that Steele is on to something!
