Both Reince Priebus and Mark Levin were on WMAL Tuesday…but not at the same time. RNC Chair Reince Priebus was asked to respond to comments Mark Levin has made that they’ve done next to nothing to support Cuccinelli in the VA. Gov. race. Priebus basically said that the RNC has spent 3 million on their ground game in VA which doesn’t just help Cuccinelli, but also other candidates on the Republican ticket.

As well he should be - so is Rush - any pundit who isn’t reveals his/her true colors.
Apparently Fox has taken that page down.
Sorry...I meant to reply to the OP.
Here is the link from The Right Scoop:
The Republican Party wanted Cuccinelli to lose.
Good for Mark! Of course he’s on the warpath... Terry The Punk McAullife is now his governor... *barf*
The Republican Party, like the Democratic Party, is just a wing of the Communists.
They all need long prison sentences. Or worse.
First they called intensively for contributions on my landline.
Then they stuffed my mailbox with ‘issue’ surveys and contribution cards as well as slick brochures toting their ‘fiscally conservative’ candidates (Not mentioning that their social position were anything but conservative)
Now they are beginning to call and text me on my cell phone.
The buck stops here. The RNC and GOP SENATE COMMITTEE will never get another cent from me.
If everyone sent them a tea bag in their return envelope
I think they would get the message.
When asked, the voice on the other end promised me that Tea Party House members and candidates were getting financial help.
It wasn't two days before that Michele Bachmann told Mark Levin that she got zero assistance.
I called him out as a liar and haven't heard from them since.
Make that October.
His name sounds like a wuss.
Well perhaps a wuss but definitely a Rove-bot.
“Levin said its the church groups, Tea Party activists, and others who are doing the hard work of getting people out to vote on election day.”
That is so true! The RNC did not want Tom Coburn to win in OK, and they were upset when he won the primary. They did almost nothing to help him in the general election.
My daughter volunteered almost full time on Coburn’s campaign, and the people who showed up to do all the work were local conservatives, including many homeschooling families.
During the last week of the campaign, when it looked like Coburn was going to win easily, all of a sudden staffers who worked for Republican politicians in other states showed up and tried to take over. They were rude, pushy, and treated the homeschool teens who were doing the real work like slaves. When someone ordered pizza for the kids, the out of state losers tried to tell the teens they weren’t allowed to eat until they had made all their calls. My daughter, a redhead who doesn’t take crap, stepped in and told them to butt out and leave the kids alone.
At the Coburn victory party, the division in the Republican Party was evident. There were lots of old guys in rumpled suits, drinking booze, and speaking only to each other, and then there was the large, happy crowd of grass roots ordinary conservatives who were celebrating the victory and the election of a man they hoped would be a true conservative voice for Oklahoma.
Yes, Coburn has been a disappointment at times, but he is better than the candidate that the Republican establishment had chosen.
Send them some weed.
Then swat them.
So, is Coburn working well for the conservative grass roots voters who put him in office?
Or is he sucking up to ‘Republican Senators Central’ for orders on how to vote?
Ive posted this a number of times and do so again inasmuch as THIS is a constantly recurring problem and some may not grasp how widespread it is.
If you want to know why Ive cautioned my many friends to NOT SEND THE RNC A NICKLE, READ ON.
Over the years when, to steal a line from Billy Joel, I wore a younger mans clothes I was involved with several pretty solid conservative candidates for Congress. One was a Democrat (Lawrence Patton McDonald) because that was the only way he could win in that district. Those old-timers who know Larrys record will tell you that he was a solid an anti-communist America Firster and more Republican than the Pubbies in nearby districts at the time. (His mothers cousin was General George Patton from whom he got the middle name and his incredible resolve and love of this country.) How ironic that he, like General Patton, was also assassinated by the communists they both despised.
Those other candidates ran as Republicans. Because I was a rabid Bircher back then (still am philosophically!), those candidates had to pass my rigid litmus test or I went looking for someone who did. For that reason, I hooked up with what the TRADITIONAL country club Pubbie establishment types believed were too radical for their refined tastes.
As those campaigns began to unfold and it became clear to the country clubbers that these guys 1) had a shot and 2) were pretty independent thinkers who would be hard to keep on the reservation once they got sworn in, the local Pubbies communicated that information to the Republican National HQ types who rather quickly sent in campaign professionals ostensibly to lock up the impending victory.
Instead, in nearly every case to which I was privy, these professionals proceeded to TORPEDO our guys campaign in subtle but effective ways.
From that experience I can tell you that the Pubbies at the HQ in D.C. would rather have a Democrat win a given district than have a pubbie up there who would embarrass them by refusing to follow the party line.
If YOU become involved in campaigns for solidly conservative, America and Constitution loving, hard-nosed, independent thinking candidates in 2014 and beyond and I pray many of you do — please DO NOT trust any of those folks from GOP HQ in Washington. If they want to send you no-strings cash for your campaign, take it. If, however, they suggest sending in one of their professionals, tell them to fuggetaboutit.
They ARE WHO GOT US INTO THIS MESS AND THEY ARE NOT YOUR FRIENDS!!!!
“The common and continual mischief of the spirit of Party is
sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to
discourage and restrain it.” G. Washington
(BTW, My genealogical research informs me that my 5th great-grandfather, one John Carpenter, was one of George Washingtons Virginia neighbors and fought with GW in the French and Indian War and the Revolution. Prior to that, John traveled with GW during his survey of the Northwest Territories.)
By not stepping up (heavily) support pre-election when they should have, the GOP showed instead its support for the upcoming Hillary presidency. It might as well have shot itself in the groin and the brain at the same time. It’s impotent and aids and abets the commie/marxist party rather than the Tea Party and conservatives.
While I appreciate the thought, it could have negative
consequences, better a tea bag.
Yes they did.
They can say “See, the conservatives lose and RINO’s win”
In my head his name comes out as Prince Reebus
Make it bitter tea too
First, $3 million in the Washington metropolitan media market is spitting in the ocean.
Second, it appears to me the eGOP held back until "early voting" was over, whomever Cuccinelli trusted with his opposition research - and how many of his subcontractors were eGOP - comes out with the Obama's Texas bundler bankrolling the faux Libertarian, for example, after more than half of those who voted had cast their ballots.
The eGOP played its game against it's most loyal base, in the off years states. Terry McAsshat's victory in Virginia is testimony to the weakness, or weakmindedness, of the GOP. It's the equal to the South Carolina Democrats getting stuck with the no-where man as their nominee a couple of years ago.
I said after the 2012 election that Levin is the only sane voice out there. I used to think he was hard on the GOP, but he is right on! I had no idea how bad this was. These RINO jerks are destroying us.
Not that I was very kindly disposed toward the GOP-E since they foisted John McLame on us in 2008 anyway, but this particular race ABSOLUTELY CUTS IT: I will NEVER give a single penny to the GOP, or to any GOP-E group.
Cuccinelli is a Republican. The GOP had 2 elections to worry about this year, and the other one was a gimme. Yet they gave millions to Oliver Hardy in NJ and only found 1/3 of the money that they gave to Cooch’s predecessor, and Cooch was completely underfunded as a result. Further, the fat pig from NJ was unwilling to help Cooch with even a single speech - some Republican! But what can you expect from a guy who embraces Obama days before the election last year? (Oh, and how much in the way of federal funds came NJ’s way since then? Moron!).
To the GOP-E: You imbeciles, you dumbschits, you festering pustules of irrelevence! You gave away a governorship in a key swing state, and handed the ability to massively mess with the election machinery to a Clinton stooge in 2016, a year in which HRC is the odds-on favorite to be the candidate. Congratulations! You win the Hari Kari award for this decade! You morons, you nit-wits, you utter IDIOTS! You’d rather hold onto the levers of power for another few years and lose on a national level, instead of letting a popular guy like Cuccinelli win...just because you THINK it’d make you look bad. You just handed the Supreme Court to the radical anti-Americans for a generation, if not forever. Jackasses!
Levin is a stand-up guy, a real hero.
OK, Cucc received $3 million from the RNC, but how much did he receive from all other sources?
Don’t waste your teabag. Just send the tea label tag.
Part of my email from Catholicvote.org:
“First, some facts to consider:
McAuliffe raised roughly $34.4 million vs. Cuccinellis estimated $20 million
The national GOP spent approximately $3 million on this race vs. $9 million spent in 2009
McAuliffe outspent Ken 10-1 throughout the campaign, including ads containing outright lies claiming Cuccinelli would take away womens contraception
A third-party libertarian challenger funded by a large Obama donor garnered over 6% of the vote; had a portion of these voters gone with Cuccinelli, he could have won”
I think he is a bit naive. He wants to get along with the Democrats and doesn’t seem to get it that they are snakes and can’t be trusted. Perhaps he is finally waking up, though, because he said Reid was an a-hole.
I’ve written to him a few times, and it doesn’t seem to matter much. He has his own ideas on certain issues, but I don’t think he is a toady to the Republican leaders. For one thing, he has said he won’t run again after this term is up, so he doesn’t need to be concerned with what they say.
