Republican Chairman Poll

  • 17 Comments
  • by: A-bob

As you know, or may not know, the Republicans are electing their National Chairman. Who do you support for that position? 6 candidates from the industrial mid-western state of Ohio to the southern state of South Carolina to Maryland and Michigan, candidates seek the name of their party Chairman.

Who do you support for the National Republican Chairman?

  1. I read some of your diaries and it’s like you’re writing in amphibrachic tetrameter or something…  jeez…

    Anyway, repubs need to elect Steele and then immediately hire Katon Dawson as Exec Director to run their ground game.  Steele can be the new public face of the party while Dawson organizes like he’s done in SC.  It’s a win-win…if you’re a repub…

      1. The race is hard to call at this point. No matter who wins, the far vs. center-right ideological debate will continue.

        The new party chair has to clearly lay out their vision for the party, and it can’t be “All Democrats are Evil.” That helps no one, and is counter-productive.

        We all win when there can be respectful disagreement. Good debate brings clearer policy as long as both sides are willing to listen to each other. We all lose when actions are taken out of partisan spite.

        I think that the Republicans should focus less on social wedge issues and more on ways to implement fiscal responsibility.

        For example, if the President-Elect wants to cut programs that are inefficient, the Republicans should jump at the chance to show that they know about fiscal responsibility. This would go along way to reestablishing their reputation on the issue, and would give themselves something to build on.

    1. Ken Blackwell should get it then Katon Dawson should do the ground work. Steele just wants something other then Lt.Governor on his resume when he runs for President.

      He doesn’t care about the party as long as he wins the primary he is fine.

  2. if the President-Elect wants to cut programs that are inefficient, the Republicans should jump at the chance to show that they know about fiscal responsibility.

    There goes the Dept. of Education, Labor, and the entire legislative arm of the U.S. government.

    Also….

    That tactic seemed to work quite well for Chairman Dean…

      1. The President-Elect doesn’t look like he wants to cut much at all, but augment it with the largest single government ‘stimulus’ expenditure in history.  I don’t see supporting Obama in cutting inefficient programs as being much of a problem for the Republicans.

        As to a combative chairman, here’s yours:

        Since taking over as chairman of the Democratic National Committee earlier this year, the former presidential candidate has been quoted in newspapers making unusually caustic remarks about Republicans.

        Dean has suggested that they are “evil.” That they are “corrupt.” He called them “brain-dead” during a stop in Toronto — and while the Terri Schiavo case was still in the news. He has tagged Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) as a “liar.” Last week, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that he mimicked a “drug-snorting Rush Limbaugh” at an event there.

        More:

        This is a struggle of good and evil.  And we’re the good.

        -Howard Dean, Lawrence Journal World 2/26/05

        Countdown to Pols chiming in and saying Dean is correct and appropriate in 3….2…1…

        (You can consider your comments on constructive dialogue to have been noted).

        Dean helmed the bloodbath handed to the Republicans the last two elections, and has to be looked at as being successful in what he’s done.

        I agree that it’s unnecessary, and I certainly don’t run my personal life and business or political interactions like that, but the Republicans want to win.  If that’s the case, don’t you think they should follow the caustic Democrat example?

        1. I laughed my ass off when he almost lost it, which coincidentally was just before his campaign was going to implode anyway. I knew he was done in that arena of politics. I think they gave him the DNC as a consolation prize, but no one expected him to achieve what he was able to.

          He was chairman during very successful electoral cycles. It’s debatable what direct effect he had on the results, but some of the ideas from his presidential campaign (50 state initiative, use of the internet as a fundraising tool) have become hallmarks of any well-run campaign.

          That being said, I believe he was unnecessarily vindictive in his dealings with the Republican Party. I think that feeling spread through the more impressionable members of the Democratic Party.

          On a personal note, I wasn’t trying to antagonize anyone with my statement on constructive dialogue. I have been and continue to be interested in hearing opinions I may disagree with, as long as they’re respectful for the most part and reasonably thought out. It’s the reflexive ignorance and malice that I find intolerable.

          I would never suggest that Republicans are evil. My father’s a Republican, and I’m pretty sure he raised me right, though I’m sure he’s wondering how in the hell I became a Democrat.
