RNC Chairman Michael Steele must be replaced. No RINOs need apply.

Under the leadership of Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele the Republican Party has grossly misspent campaign contributions to  support RINO’s (Republican In Name Only) in the last two elections and caused a few solid conservative Republican candidates to lose their election bids. In the special election in New York’s 23rd Congressional District election in 2009, Steele was in charge when the Republican Party donated one-million dollars to the campaign of party nominee Dede Scozzafava rather than support Doug Hoffman who had secured the NY State Conservative Party nomination. Scozzafava was so far to the left she would have been a better nominee for the Labor Party, the Green Party, or the Progressive Party.  She had no business being picked by the GOP. Then shortly before the election, after realizing she was so far down in the polls with Doug Hoffman way ahead of her, Dede Scozzafava dropped out of the race and threw her support to the Democratic party candidate who went on to win a narrow victory.

Now the news is saying that Michael Steele is having problems gaining support within his own leadership circle  to run for reelection as party chairman in January 2011. Several leading Republicans have announced that he should not run at all. Michael Steele must accept responsibility for every mistake the National Republican Party made in 2010. Among the other blunders was the fact that the National Committee failed to support the Tea Party winners of many Republican primaries, including Joe Miller in Alaska and Christine O’Donnell in Delaware. The Republican National Committee even had planned to send a team of lawyers to Alaska to challenge Joe Miller’s primary win over incumbent U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski. Those plans were scrapped after a firestorm of protest erupted.

The Republican National Committee is far too entrenched with supporting middle of the road candidates and has lost its conservative character. It has been that way for several decades and was the actual cause of the creation of the NY State Conservative Party in the 1960’s when they broke away from the Republican Party controlled by liberal RINOs Nelson Rockefeller and Jacob Javits.

The Tea Party movement is the resurgence of the silent majority conservatives in America. They must be encouraged to remain within the Republican Party or else they will break away and form a third party like the NY State Conservative Party did. And if they do they will suffer the same consequences. The only candidate in the 48 year history of the NY State Conservative Party to get elected solely on the Conservative Party line was U.S. Senator Jim Buckley in 1970.
