Richard Steele's Prognostication of Malfeasance
Richard Steele, Chairman of the GOP, took a day off yesterday from his regimen of bringing down the Republican party from within. He wanted to warn the Party that they probably would not take back the house of representatives in 2010, despite obama's rampant unpopularity. He spent almost twenty million dollars in the last round of gubernatorial elections, leaving the GOP war chest with a scant eight millions dollars for the 2010 election. And no one wants to give the Republican party any money right now; they would rather fund the Tea Party movement and Sarah Palin. Steele basically said that the Republican party probably could not handle a majority in either house. I guess he's referring to the Abramoff scandals from a few years ago, but I'm not sure if that kind of honesty really helps the party. In a strange way, though, he's right. The Republican party is flailing, and needs to unite around a core set of Fundamental values that a majority of the Country can relate to. Less spending leads to lower taxes leads to more jobs, spending, and a healthy economy. That should be the Conservative path to victory, not this ridiculous infighting. If we run three candidates in the 2012 elections, the result will be the same as the 1992 election, where Perot threw the vote to Clinton and ushered in the destruction of America.
