Michael Steele: ´A lot of Interest in´
Eric Cantor for RNC Chairman

Breitbart TV, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 6/15/2014 2:33:33 PM

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. “The ‘what’s next’ is always the big play in Washington – what do you do next,” Steele said. “And with the upcoming presidential election, there’s a lot of interest in Eric Cantor serving as national chairman of the RNC –

Maybe he could do as good a job as Mr. Steele?

Why don´t they just appoint Bill Clinton or Obama to the post?
At least then they won´t have to pretend to give a damn about the party, the country, or the base.

RINO-boy Cantor couldn´t even win a district primary to keep his House seat. He spent $5 million of OPM including $186,000 at one steak house and still lost.

On a positive note Cantor sends out nice newsletters, questionnaires and invitations to coffees which impresses his clueless supporters.

I can see the reasoning. Cantor has a network of fundraisers. Part of why he lost is he was too busy focusing on other races and not his own. He knows the candidates that need help and how much help they need. He wouldn´t be a philosophical leader, he´d be a logistical leader.

Anyone that has worked in a restaurant knows what happens when you keep using the same oil in the fry cooker: the food just gets worse with each use.

Michael Steele, on MSNBC, crowing about how great it would be for Cantor (past his sell-by date) to become RNC chairman.

Have I made myself clear about how absurd this is?

No - money will not decide the next presidential election. I think we have learned our lesson on that topic. We need a leader with sound conservative ideas and the courage to undo all of the damage done by the Obama crime family. The next RNC chairman should be an expert on people, not bake sales. Obama raised millions and all he can do now is sniff out more money for his commie friends. Romney had enough money but fought a weak battle. Give us a fighter and we will donate the money.

Apparently the only thing more appealing to establishment republicans than being successful candidate and elected official is being an unsuccessful loser. If Anthony Weiner were in that party he would probably be running neck and neck in a popularity contest with Cantor and several presidential candidates.

Another clear indication that for the party apparatus, it´s just business as usual. Last time I looked, the RNC Chair is expected to be a very public post with frequent press appearances. Cantor´s weasel gentle personality has been part of his problem. I do agree he would be a good fundraiser but in a behind the scenes way -- not as RNC spokesman. The GOP still does not understand they need fresh faces, fresh speechwriters, dynamic clever PR. Keep recycling the old crowd and we kept losing.

For the past couple of weeks, Karen Lewis has been saying she is “seriously” considering running for mayor. It turns out voters are taking the fiery Chicago Teachers Union president’s potential candidacy seriously as well. And Mayor Rahm Emanuel probably should, too. At least that’s what a surprising new Early & Often Poll suggests. If the mayoral election were held today, the lightning rod union leader who was the architect behind a 2012 teachers’ strike would beat Emanuel by 9 percentage points in a head-to-head contest, the survey found. Lewis was leading Emanuel 45 percent to 36 percent with 18

Citing America’s support for Israel and its alleged spying on Muslims, a powerful Arab-American group has called for a boycott of Monday night’s annual Iftar dinner at the White House. The event, celebrating Ramadan and scheduled to be held in the State Dining Room, is inappropriate in light of current violence in the Middle East, according to the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC). “In the government’s silence, Israel is committing a massacre in Palestine with the possibility of an all-out ground assault,” the organization said in a statement. “This deplorable situation, brought on by Israel’s U.S.-sanctioned illegal occupation of Palestine, has

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is looking to overhaul the Emergency Alert System so the president can speak to the country at the flip of a switch in the event of a nationwide emergency. The national Emergency Alert System broadcasts television alert messages to warn people about immediate dangers. The system is often used at the local level to warn people about weather conditions such as tornadoes or flash floods. But the Emergency Alert System is not capable of reaching the entire country all at once should the president need to warn the public of something like a terrorist attack

Approximately 2,000 eighth graders in the Rialto, CA, school district received a shocking in-class essay assignment in May, which led to an outcry from the community and a public apology from district administrators. The assignment asked students to discuss whether the Holocaust “was an actual event in history,” or whether it was “merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain,” the San Bernadino Sun reports. After the justified outrage ensued, district administrators insisted that not one single student had argued against the reality of the Holocaust.

From a speech he gave in Austin, Texas late last week: “I’m just telling the truth now. I don’t have to run for office again, so I can just, you know, let her rip.” Yes, he really said that – effectively meaning he wasn’t being totally straightforward before he got elected (see: Politifact’s “Lie of the Year” about keeping your health plan).

Democrats in tough reelection races have a blunt message for President Obama: Keep away. Obama’s approval ratings are in the basement and show no signs of improving, so Democrats are keeping their distance. On the stump, in campaign ads and at fundraisers, Obama’s absence is increasingly conspicuous. Democrats are voicing their displeasure with his policies and campaign advisers are telling candidates to avoid being photographed with him, so as to deny Republicans effective visuals for campaign ads. “It’s a no-brainer,” said one operative who works for a senator up for reelection in 2014. “The second term has been a bit

Sarah Palin wants to impeach Barack Obama. In an op-ed article published last week, the former Republican vice presidential nominee declared that the crisis on the southern border (where young illegal immigrants are being detained) "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´No, mas´." The Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, thinks that´s loco. (Technically, he said, "I disagree".) For Republicans hoping to avoid the kind of drama that might derail what looks to be a very good midterm election year, this kind of call is both a nuisance and a trend.

Sadly, the arrival of these youngsters has been greeted by flag-waving, sign-carrying, Bible-thumping and Constitution-quoting citizens demanding that they not be received here and that they be returned immediately to their
