I don’t care too much about the RNC hierarchy and their machinations these days but this new Chairman being strongly pro-life is a good thing. However, he’ll have to align himself with conservatives if he expects much support. The days of RINO RNC chairmen is over. That’s another reason the Tea Party exists, as an end-run around the RNC, which favors RINO politicians and has shunned too many conservatives.

Pro-life? I sure hope so. Or will he be one of those “I’m pro-life and pro-family but we’ve got to be tolerant of other views and opinions” kind of guy?

If he wants Dime One from me, he's going to have to change his name to something I can spell. How about "Bill"? I can spell Bill.

Not his fault, but I thought it was a tinny little car.

I hope he is not another Mehlman mole.

Hopefully the powers that be of the RNC see teh writing on the wall. The country club mentality is dead and should stay that way.

The House had better not buckle to blob in with the democrats cheerleading Obama.

You can’t tell how much the democrats lost if they are mixed in with everyone else.

His family is from Volhynia, which if you know anything about the Ukraine, is the Western, Catholic part. North and west of the Carpathians, it was part of Poland prior to the first partition, and has significant Polish influence.

Ukranian Catholic it appears, which is an interesting heritage.

Thanks. A most unusual name. I’ll have to cruise the web for some history of the region in the Ukraine. With this reply from you, now I’ve got something to go on as I search the web. Thanks again.

Good Grief… Leading RNC Candidate’s Law Firm Supports Obamacare – Says It’s Constitutional
RightNetWork ^ | Thursday, December 30, 2010 | Jim Hoft

Posted on Thursday, December 30, 2010 2:03:16 PM by Leisler

This will go over well with the conservative base… If you thought the fact that RNC Chair candidate, Maria Cino, was an Obamacare lobbyist was outrageous wait until you hear the latest… The leading candidate in the race – Reince Priebus‘s law firm supports Obamacare and says its constitutional!

Yes, you read that correctly. Reince Priebus’s law firm supports Obamacare and says its constitutional. Unbelievable.

You’re welcome.

His family’s likely been American since the mid 19th century.
