Wadhams supporting soulmate Anuzis

  • 3 Comments
  • by: jaytee

(We’re obligated to note that Wadhams has repeatedly expressed support for RNC Chair Michael Steele–here, here, and here, just as a few examples. Style similarities with Anuzis aside, for Wadhams to ditch Steele is quite significant – promoted by Colorado Pols)

In the RNC chairman elections, Colo GOP head Dick Wadhams doesn’t like incumbent Michael Steele. Instead he’s going with Saul Anuzis, which is kind of funny, given Anuzis’ record heading the Michigan GOP, a record that will sound familiar to Wadhams watchers in Colorado.

In the race to elect the next Republican National Committee Chairman, Colorado GOP leader Dick Wadhams has reportedly thrown his support behind Saul Anuzis, who was state party chairman in Michigan from 2005 to 2009. Gimlet-eyed observers might call the endorsement sympathetic: Anuzis struggled with losses similar to those presided over by Wadhams in the last three years. Under Anuzis’ leadership, Michigan Republicans lost two Congressional seats and their majority in the state House.  

That’s the funny part. Then there’s the sad part.

Anuzis leadership in Michigan was made additionally controversial because he endorsed race-baiting politics.

At least Dick’s consistent: he never vets anybody.

  1. After seeing Wadhams repeatedly defend Steele from his many detractors. We noted Tuesday how Wadhams’ previous high regard for Steele wasn’t shared by many Colorado Republicans. If Wadhams he abandoned Steele, he’s got very few quotable friends left indeed.

  2. And even less surprising.  As the sitting chairman during a big election year, you cannot go out there, responsibly, and throw the chairman under the bus.  It would create chaos, get off message, lower morale, and generally make a bad internal situation a bad external one.

    You didn’t see Gentry Collins criticizing his boss during the election year either, despite the obvious problems.  His job was to promote and defend the party during battle.  But after the battle, Gentry was free to publish a 4 page memo that just obliterated Steele’s reputation.

    Haven’t you guys ever worked for a company, been on a sports team, been in the military, etc?  This is basic responsibility.  Otherwise, you look like Terrell Owens – and we’ve all seen how well that works out for his team.

    Wadhams supported him in the beginning; as things went on it became apparent Steele wasn’t up to the task; Wadhams & most GOP officials had to demonstrate support for Steele as little as they could get away with; now that the election season is over, he and the others are free to choose other horses.  And for that matter, even today you’re not going to find DW saying a lot of bad things about Steele, but rather talking about the upside to someone else (Anuzis in this case).

    How does this make FP?

    1. I give him this much credit:  he’s treating Michael Steele much, much better than Colorado’s asshole GOP Chairman treated the Republican Gubernatorial primary winner.
