That’s Twitter, not tritter.
What was his first clue?
New RINO same as the old RINO
Well,, It is Money Bomb FRiday! ;-)
FiReWorkS are definitely in order!!
Calling Rosy, Steele melts. :)
God Bless America ,,,,, Finally ,,,, thank you Jesus !!!!!
The RNC Chairman Race: Steele Drops Out, Endorses Cino.
Different? like sitting together with the rats at the SOTUA?
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.
That’s what I fear, while Steele was a fool we might get a worst RINO, there is nothing to celebrate
As far as letters from the NRSC, staight to the trash as long as Cornyn is heading it.
I feel cynical, I’m wondering how long until he says he had to because he was a victim of “violent rhetoric”.....
By morning he’ll be making a statement blaming the racist tea partiers.
Yep, the Tea Party kicked the black man out, didn’t they?
At least that’s the spin.
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....
He’s going to blame Tucson on Palin at his first opportunity.
Yeah, like maybe not pay any more bills to stripclubs.
Good riddance. I was really disappointed by his leadership.
IS THIS TRUE??????????????
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.
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.
Yes, until you see the left wing apartchik they have to replace him.
Somehow, I do not doubt it.
He backed Cina. If she wins, NEVER vote for any Republican ever again.
Wow- Priebus is leading
I think he is the best of that list- outsider not lifelong insider
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?
OK let’s be civilized here
IF he dropped out graciously let’s PLEASE be magnanimous?
(as long as he does not come back to bad mouth us)
More tears are shed over answered prayers than ignored ones.
“It’s very clear that the party wants to do something different.”
You’re damn right...at least someone is getting the message!
Just wait for his book and it will be coming out in time to do “O” the most good. Bank on THAT!
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.
4:18 p.m. ET - Ballot round #5:
He was with the Wisconsin Republican Party at the time the Republicans took over The Governor’s office and both the Strate Senate and Assembly from the dems.
Good riddance, RINO Steele.
If Cino gets it, we would have been better off with Steele.
I fear we’re just walking into the hands of the libs here. Bring up the cold, white, attorney with the German economy car name...
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.
You know what?
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.
This is just going to break Sean Hannity’s heart...
