Reince Priebus told The Daily Caller on Thursday that he intends to decide soon if he’ll run for another term as chairman of the Republican National Committee. “Just spending a few days with the family and will likely make a decision within a week or two,” Priebus told TheDC by email. Interviews with Republicans on Thursday indicate that Priebus has widespread support among members of the committee for another two-year term if he decides to run.“I hope he would do it for love of our country and this party,” said Solomon Yue,
Priebus needs to go away quietly and stay away. I held my nose and voted for the Repstablishment Party Choice. Never again. I will sat at home and not vote at all unless I am 100% + behind the candidate. I was not for Romney at all in any way during the primaries. But at a drag race you gotta run what you brung. Next time, if my race car is not what I want it to be, I will keep it on the trailer and forefeit the race rather than go against my innermost gut beliefs and race anyway and lose big time. Never again. Reince did not lead, he was told what to do by the Big Repstablishment insiders that picked Romney from the beginning. We know who they are. Enough already. Now we get to suffer the consequences.
I'm sick and tired of people blaming Karl Rove. Frankly, I'm not a huge fan of Rover but he did get Bush elected "twice". Perhaps if Romney and team had of used Rove the outcome might have been different.
Get OUT. When Laura Ingram asked him why the debates were moderated by media libs, he said, well we abide by the Presidential Debate Committee's decisions and they picked the moderators. Now that is some old time leadership there, buddy.
It will probably be a very quick decent into complete irrelevance for the Republican party if they keep 'fighting' like this. They apparently don't know how to find or vet good candidates, guard the ballot box or outwit their lying opponents.
I'd say shake things up and at least give the kid who did the undercover videos that exposed ACORN, who stole at least one senate seat and who knows what this time, an interview. I'd LOVE to see the political earthquake if the media, the DNC and beltway RINOs thought that guy would run them. Hey, he couldn't be worse.
Romney won the primaries. He was not "selected" by the establishment. He was probably the most electable candidate. All the other candidates had flaws that would have been exploited by the dems. Republicans who stayed home and didn't vote because Romney wasn't good enough can take credit for electing Obama.
Laughable how all those so quick to jump on the cult member band wagon are now jumping off. #17 If you think "the establishment" does not control who wins the primaries you can go on deluding yourself that the "straw-man" voter that had the integrity not to support or vote for a RINO just go along to get along and because there was no other choice.
I was withholding judgment until I just heard Mark Levin say that Reince, in cahoots with John Boehner, did not give a dime to Michele Bachmann in her nailbiter race--which she won by 1500 votes. And, Reince, you proude cheesehead you, you lost Wisconsin, so you get lost and take the drunken speaker with you.
How about some new thinking and some new blood? Like maybe a retired battle tested admiral or general.......We are now engaged in an all out war for the soul of America with the Marxist dominated barbarians of The Dark Side!
One thing we should do is to stop trying to be safe. If we're gonna lose at least we should lose extravagantly, with good cheer and in great style. In that spirit I nominate Sununu and The Nuge. Reinse is all wet.
#27, you are so right! The Left is always calling US extreme, so I say, let's give it to 'em! Get people like Nugent and Sununu. Men who call it as they see it and let the chips fall where they may. I've really had it with this milquetoast party.
Can we clean the GOP house and get some actual leadership, or is it too late?
Can we start talking about a new Constitutional Party? If all the GOP is going to give us the same old, spineless, unmanned, unconvicted, across the aisle reaching, compromising leadership, it is what they deserve.
We did not leave the Republican Party, our leadership joined the democrats, and called it 'compassionate conservatism'. Since when has being a dependent slave to the state, compassionate?
#11, Rove did get Bush elected twice. But at what cost? He and his friends in the GOP gave us a man not unlike John Kerry. Now conservatives have little or no faith or trust in the GOP, and we now have a commie in the WH. Thanks Karl,well done.
If Romney supporters start blaming evangelicals(the super few) who MIGHT have stayed home for Obama's reelection, shame on you. There were reasons we did not win and it wasn't Christians, Sarah Palin (I m sure she will be blamed before long) or the Tea Party.
She wakes to the sound of breathing. The smaller children lie tangled beside her, their chests rising and falling under winter coats and wool blankets. A few feet away, their mother and father sleep near the mop bucket they use as a toilet. Two other children share a mattress by the rotting wall where the mice live, opposite the baby, whose crib is warmed by a hair dryer perched on a milk crate. Slipping out from her covers, the oldest girl sits at the window. On mornings like this, she can see all the way across Brooklyn to the Empire
On Sunday´s NBC Meet the Press, host David Gregory used the death of former South African President Nelson Mandela to lecture American politicians: "Mandela refused to be consumed by hatred and insisted on working toward a common purpose with his political foes. That, seems to me, is what is missing from this era of argument in Washington." [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump] However, Gregory portrayed President Obama as the victim of such polarization, rather than one of its instigators: "The election of our 44th president was similarly an example of how countries can overcome
The top 40 percent of households by before-tax income actually paid 106.2 percent of the nation’s net income taxes in 2010, according to a new study by the Congressional Budget Office. At the same time, households in the bottom 40 percent took in an average of $18,950 in what the CBO called “government transfers” in 2010. Taxpayers in the top 40 percent of households were able to pay more than 100 percent of net federal income taxes in 2010 because Americans in the bottom 40 percent actually paid negative income taxes, according to the CBO study entitled, “The Distribution of
All three networks on Monday morning highlighted the appearance of the Obamas at the Kennedy Center Honors, but only ABC fawned over "fashion win" of First Lady. Lara Spencer enthused that " one of the stars of the show was Michelle Obama." An excited Spencer explained that Mrs. Obama looked "absolutely ravishing in a flowing teal gown as she accompanied President Obama." The co-host declared, "Another big fashion win for the First Lady. CBS This Morning offered a full report on the various performers who were honored, but co-anchor Charlie Rose avoided ABC´s superlatives.
BANGUI, Central African Republic — Dozens of young men stood waiting for storm clouds to pass, as wind stirred up swirls of red dust on the largely deserted street in Central African Republic’s capital. Through the drizzle, they spotted a man in a flowing white robe traditionally worn by Muslims, hand-in-hand with his adolescent son. The style of dress was enough to confirm that this was their enemy. Hungry for revenge, the crowd descended upon the pair. The man’s terrified son broke away, and fled on foot, abandoning his father as the knife-wielding mob clutched the middle-aged man. Muslim rebels
Former Alaska Governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin will host a new outdoors show on The Sportsman Network, set to begin airing in 2014. The weekly show, entitled Amazing America, will showcase Palin’s “red, white, and blue” lifestyle. Palin is no stranger is television, having starred in her own reality show in 2011, Sarah Palin’s Alaska, which lasted only nine episodes. (Hey, remember this?) Palin won’t be the only right-wing figure on the network, as Ted Nugent hosts his own hunting show, Wanted Ted or Alive. Currently promoting her Christmas book, Good Tidings and Great Joy, Palin recently became
President Obama will make remarks on Nelson Mandela´s legacy during a memorial service Tuesday for the late South African freedom fighter, officials said Monday. "We do expect President Obama to speak as part of the program," said Ben Rhodes, deputy national security adviser for strategic communications. The president and first lady Michelle Obama departed Monday for Johannesburg, where a Mandela memorial service will be held in a soccer stadium. Obama, who will also spend time with the Mandela family, is not scheduled to hold any bilateral meetings with foreign leaders while in South Africa, Rhodes said. Rhodes also said the
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
