Is the RNC lost? I think so. I think it was lost shortly after the 2004 elections. If not then, then it was certainly during the run-up to the 2006 elections. They lost the message. They talked like Democrats and then they wondered why the hell they lost their ass. I don’t think Michael Steele will be able to right this sinking ship.
I wish him well, but his first media outing as Chairman, sucked. He seems out of his league.
The RNC needs leadership that won’t kowtow to the Democrats and call for “bipartisanship” at every drop of the hat. The RNC needs to get on message, stay on message, and crush any liberal lunatic that opens his mouth.
Kind of hard to do when all of the leadership takes a hike.
The bleeding continues at the RNC. After new chair Michael Steele fired most of the staff, other key contributors have begun leaving on their own. Last week it was finance chair Tim Chapman, and now the man in charge of all on-line operations has left – without any immediate prospects:
Arguably the most respected technocrat in the Republican Party, Cyrus Krohn is just the latest in a string of officials to resign from the RNC; last week, the RNC’s finance director quit. But because GOP Chairman Michael Steele made leveraging the Internet to attract voters to the Republican Party a top priority ina tech summit two weeks ago, Krohn’s departure comes as an especially heavy blow – not just to the RNC, but to the conservative blogosphere.
