"It's very clear that the party wants to do something different."

What was his first clue?

Good news, of course, but how good depends on who is next.

Anyway, no matter who they pick I can’t see repealing my own personal lifetime ban on ever donating another nickel to the RNC.

I donate to individual candidates only and I think I will continue doing that for the rest of my life.

But still... good news.

Hmmm, maybe I won't send the next letter I get from the RNC in the "round file cabinet".

As far as letters from the NRSC, staight to the trash as long as Cornyn is heading it.

Not going to blame Steele for this, but you know by the end of the day the media or the Democrats are going to play the race card.

People are in the fever now, typing out their blogs saying that the racist tea-baggers forced Steele out.

These, of course, will be the same left-wing bloggers that have consistently mocked and blamed him....

Yeah, like maybe not pay any more bills to stripclubs.

Good riddance. I was really disappointed by his leadership.

Steele will become another talking head on MSNBC.
Now that he is out from under the job, he will be free to be who he actually is. He will come out and trash the repubs and will be loved by the marxists. Opportunistic punk.
Bet on it.

The RNC Chairman Race: Steele Drops Out, Endorses Cino.

This is really lousy news. Cino is the worst of the bunch, a flaming pro-abort, pro-amnesty liberal.

Obviously Da Boyz leaned on Steele to drop out, and probably told him who to endorse.

The Tea Party has zero input into this process. We will end up FAR WORSE than before, going into the most critical election of our lifetimes.

Wow- Priebus is leading

I think he is the best of that list- outsider not lifelong insider


Steele and former Missouri Republican Party Chairwoman Ann Wagner both receieved 28 votes in the fourth round. Steele lost five additional votes, while Priebus gained four, Cino gained one and Anuzis gained three.

Here are the fourth-round results:

• Wisconsin Republican Party Chairman Reince Priebus 58

• Former Bush administration official Maria Cino 29

• Incumbent Michael Steele 28

• Former Missouri Republican Party Chairwoman Ann Wagner 28

• Former Michigan Republican Party Chairman Saul Anuzis 24

In the third round of voting, Priebus was first with 54; Steele was next with 33; Wagner moved into third place with 32 votes; Cino received 28; and Anuzis got 21.

In the second round of voting, Priebus came in first with 52 votes; Steele was next with 37; Cino followed with 30; Wagner received 27; and Anuzis had 22.

Steele put up a strong showing in the first round. He took 44 votes, only one fewer than Priebus. Cino finished in third place, with 32 votes, while Anuzis received 24 and Wagner got 23.


WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT PRIEBUS?

I wouldn’t bet against it.

He was such a disappointment from his lackluster defense of all things conservative, to the stripclub fiasco, and then near the end of his term, whining about racism from within bringing too much pressure on him, he was an embarrassment.

Shoulda figured as Ehrlich’s right hand man. He really didn’t seem that bad though before he took the reigns of the RNC.

Steele whining about racism?

What an idiot!

Doesn’t he know what happens to a persons carreer, name and his family if he is tagged with that charge? The racism game will destroy you even if you are innocent.

He is using the crutch of racism for his incompetance.

Maybe steele should go to work for our first marxist in cheif. He would be quite at home there.

Hey steele, cry me a river. You are getting equal opportunity treatment. You fail at your job, you are gone despite your physical characteristics. You fail, you’re fired. Join the crowd. Cept you weren’t fired to make way for a minority. Deal with it.

I’m embarrassed to admit I thought Steele was going to be really good. Actually maybe he is a good representative of the establishment GOP? They both talk a good battle sometimes but when all is said and done they absolutely suck.

They can take their charges of racism, roll ‘em up real tight, and shove them where the sun don’t shine

for all I care. I’m DONE with giving the race card any power or credence.
