MICHAEL STEELE: 'A LOT OF INTEREST IN' ERIC CANTOR FOR RNC CHAIRMAN
Breitbart TV ^ | 14 Jun 2014

Posted on 06/14/2014 4:50:40 PM PDT by kingattax

On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Up w/Steve Kornaki,” former Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele said there was push for outgoing-Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) to head the Republican National Committee after he leaves office in January.

Steele pointed to the build-up of the 2016 presidential election cycle as a reason for the push behind Cantor.

Eric outspent his opponent $5.4 million to $200,000 and still lost. Yeah, that would be a brilliant choice.

The people of his own district have voiced their opinion of Cantor. They told him to go home.

Before he takes the job, Cantor wants to know what is the RNC’s steakhouse budget.

No Michael. Haven’t you heard? We have cast you OUT of the party, mainly due to your backstabbing, asskissing ways. No, go home and open a beer.

That rather defeats the purpose of his losing the election.

He lost for a reason — he lost touch with the people of his district. It would seem that that is the last kind of leadership the RNC needs now, because it, too, has lost touch with the people is supposedly represents.

What a dope. You don’t get it Steele. You were supposed to be a true conservative and turned out to be a “get jiggy with it” embarrassment of a RINO. You were replaced with another toad stool, but never the less, Cantor lost because of his RINO ways so you suggest giving him an important role as head of RNC?

Maybe Steele can get Cantor a job with his employer, MSNBC.

A senior congressman gets bounced by double digits in the primary because of the positions he holds, and the RNC wants to put him charge of the party.

The collective IQ of the RNC leadership must be in the single digits.

He essentially got fired by the Republican Party of his district. He needs to move on to something else, which I am sure a man of his abilities will have no trouble doing.

We want the slimy, duplicitous snake-in-the-grass Eric Cantor as far away from the Republican Party as he can be come January 2015. When you throw out the trash, you don’t retrieve it and give it a place of honor in the family household.

That’s a good idea, but instead of the Second Party, call it the Other Party of America. Both Democrats and Republicans would hate that.

They do not get it yet. No. I think the Ruling Class gets it just fine.

I do not think WE Conservatives get it.

We are being made politically irrelevant. The GOP Establishment wants us gone - they declared war on us and they are replacing us with Big Government Democrats.

The democrats would be the only ones interested.
Hell no to Cantor at RNC.

Or let him go get a job at Trent Lott’s Lobbying firm.

That’s where the rejects end up anyway.

Whereas Michael Steele is pretty much a stuffy middle-aged RINO fart who couldn't draw flies in a real election was appointed in some inane GOP version of Affirmative Action, Cantor doesn't have that edge going for him.

Duct tape Steele to Cantor and drop'em both in the Potomac.

It could happen. The Rockefeller/country club/east coast elite/ruling class/corporatist/GOP-e wing of the Republican Party has nearly brought the whole Party down to its last breath. Bushes/Romney/KarlRove will see to it.

POTUS #43 GWB, according to DrudgeReport, is still not willing to speak up against #44 BHO as Iraq crumbles. That Bush show last night on FOX nearly gagged me. And I voted for father/son 4X. Never again. For once I will heed JJ's advice and, "Stay oudda de Bushes" and away from Romney ...
