Michael Steele has finally jumped the ole Shark. I think this latest stunt will be his final straw…
From The Daily Caller:
Sharpton said he couldn’t believe Republicans would even think of ditching Steele as RNC chair.
“You’d be the first brother run out after doing a good job. It would be interesting to see them have a historic win, and the brother takes the fall. Usually the brother takes the fall when they lose,” Sharpton said.
The record of events which drag behind RNC Chairman Steele like boat anchors can not be refudiated… not with the race-card and not with historical revision (emphasis mine):
“Anyone who believes the movement to replace Steele as RNC chair is fueled by racial motivations has been living in a cave and ignoring his gross mismanagement of the RNC,” said one Republican, clearly a Steele critic.
“He [Steele] has left absolutely no surplus heading into a critical presidential election, dismantled the critical 72-hour GOTV program, used the office for personal profit from speaking engagements and a book, and launched a massive bus tour as a front for his reelection campaign for chairman complete with stops in territories. Republicans won in spite of Michael Steele, not because of him; it is time for change,” the source said.
Concerns about the perception of removing Steele because of his race “went out the window with millions of dollars in debt,” a second GOP operative said.
…to be a force, the RNC must change and that requires new leadership at the top. I am offering you an alternative, a choice, a different approach to the leadership and stewardship of our party.Chairman Steele’s record speaks for itself. He has his way of doing things. I have mine.
We will not win in 2012 if the RNC is not able to provide the financial resources we need to support the organizational efforts and ground games of our state parties. Without a fully funded Victory program we will be overwhelmed by the efforts of the unions, the Obama campaign and all their allies.
Even though we won an overall victory in 2010 we lost some heartbreaking statewide races in places like Illinois, Colorado, West Virginia, Washington and Nevada, and countless congressional and legislative districts because the other side had a better turnout effort.
Think about your own state. Did some terrific Republican candidate work their hearts out, yet fall short by a handful of votes on Election Day? Now ask yourself: if the RNC had properly funded the Victory program in your state, would that candidate have been a winner? Would that candidate have benefited from a robust 72-hour program with ground troops sweeping in for the final weekend?
