Michael It’s Time To Go

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

Republican National Chairman Michael Steele is dragging Republicans down and draining its bank account.  He has created controversy since his election more than a year ago.

That’s not bad enough he even wrote a book in which he says Republicans will not in 2010 take over the U. S. House of Representatives.  His actions and those of his cohorts if continued will certainly help make his prediction come true.

Worst still opportunity for Republicans is knocking on the door as we approach the 2010 midterm election. 

Steele is now presiding over a sex club fiasco by someone using Republican National Committee (RNC) money.

When Steele was elected the RNC had $22 million on hand.  In the Federal Election Commission report for the period just ended he reported less than $10 million after raising $96 million during the period.

National news accounts say the Republican National Committee is losing loyal high dollar contributors.  I expect after the sex club episode the small donors will say – no thank you.

With the opportunity President Obama has given Republicans to gain or take control of Congress the members of the Republican National Committee should remove Steele at the first opportunity.

Better yet Michael it’s time to go.

It’s Not About Your Survival, Mr. President

Sunday, January 24th, 2010

It’s about the survival of those without jobs. 

But that is not where President Obama spent his time since the election returns from the bluest of blue states on Tuesday.

Instead he is pulling together those who helped him win in 2008.  The concern at The White House is not about the economy or those without jobs.  It is about the midterm 2010 election.  But they did create one new job for David Plouffe, who ran Obama’s campaign.  He’s a new “czar” charged to keep his eye on all campaigns.

While centralizing control of the midterm elections, the planners at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue are working to send President Obama around the country to rebuild his relationship with his 2008 voters. 

The Obama political team had better hope that works better than his stimulus plan and his efforts to elect Democrats as Governors in 2009.  The President campaigned in Virginia twice and New Jersey three times.  He was no more effective with a onetime visit to Massachusetts.  Don’t forget the campaign ads, emails, direct mail and calls featuring President Obama.

There is an Op Ed written by David Plouffe in Sunday’s The Washington Post, it does not include new job creating ideas, just more of the same.  Evidently The White House did not hear the voters of Massachusetts.

“It’s about the economy, stupid”.
