I’m not sure which qualifies as the most moronic statement of the week; Pelosi’s claim Democrats would retain the majority or Steele’s claim of credit for the victories this week.
Earth to Michael Steele. What have you been smoking or has Washington done to you what it does to so many others, namely turn your brain to mush.
Steele made these comments; only hours after having acknowledged the Tea Party had put the Republicans “on probation.”
Let’s see, Michael. Politics has been transformed in the last two years. Was it you or was it the Tea Party movement? How many Michael Steele rallies have there been over the last two years? How many candidates were “Michael Steele” candidates announced for office? How many Michael Steele conventions were there in the past year? How many Michael Steele websites are there? How many Michael Steele PACs are there?
As Chairman of the RNC, you have spent money like a drunken Democrat. You have used your position to fly all over the place to promote yourself and receive speaking fees of up to $20,000 an appearance. That is something no other RNC chairman has ever done. Perhaps if you had spent more time on your job, Harry Reid might be unemployed today.
Steele certainly does not share the Tea Party fiscal philosophy. When he took over, in 2009, the RNC had a $23 million dollar surplus. Now, they only have $3.4 million in the bank and debt of almost $6 million. Four years ago, the Republican Congressional Committee and the Republican Senate Committee received $40 million from the RNC. This year, they only received $4 million from the RNC. Had Michael Steele been doing his job, we might be looking at a Senator Angle, Senator O’Donnell, a Senator Miller and perhaps a Senator McMahon. We might be looking at a seventy-five seat gain against the party of Socialism.
Michael Steele thinks he is responsible for what just happened last Tuesday? Michael Steele is delusional. Michael Steele needs to go and someone from the Tea Party needs to take his place.
Who is going to step up?
