An Open Letter to RNC Chairman Reince Priebus
Dear Chairman Priebus, I realize that you probably will never see this. I realize that, by and large, you don’t take your cues from sites like this one – though you (and we, and the party, and the country) would probably be a lot better off if you did. If, however, you do somehow come across this letter, I hope you will take what follows | Read More »
RNC convention pick bearing fruit: LeBron James to return to Cleveland.
Hey, if the President can take credit for Osama bin Laden, then Reince Priebus and the RNC can take credit for bringing LeBron back to Cleveland. I don’t make the rules, after all. I just use them to be a royal pain in the sit-upon. Four years after he bolted from Cleveland to Miami in pursuit of the N.B.A. championships that had eluded him, LeBron | Read More »

RNC, Please Don’t
Peruse any of the various stories about the Republican National Committee considering Las Vegas for the 2016 convention and the stories will read as if the GOP is going open handed to its sugar daddy, Sheldon Adelson. Already, Republicans across the nation are tripping over themselves in the rush to bask in Mr. Adelson’s presence and pledge their undying loyalty to him. Many of these | Read More »
A Humorous Look at CPAC From a “Moderate” Republican Viewpoint
Author’s note: This piece is a re-post from BizPac Review. Code Red (State) Alert: It is highly recommended that all liberal Democrats, Independents and even some moderate Republicans (if there are any left) power down their media devices the weekend of March 6 – 8. Choosing to ignore this warning means you will be inundated with news flashes of anti-Obama speeches from hordes of conservative | Read More »

Dear @Reince and @RNC: Put your money where your tweets are.
I realize this would appear to be the second letter to the party today, especially after Breeanne Howe’s “Dear John” to the party as a whole. But, I would simply like to ask something of the chairman of the RNC and the RNC itself: Turn your words into deeds. Chairman of the Republican National Committee, Reince Priebus, has not one but two posts on RedState | Read More »
RNC apparently making fundraising calls on 9/11
Cross-posted from The Quinton Report. I had just been having a discussion with a friend today about politics on 9/11 in light of a campaign press release I saw today that wasn’t 9/11 related when my phone rang. I didn’t answer it but the Caller ID indicated it was the Republican National Committee with a 202-747-7372 number. This number calls constantly and I never answer | Read More »
RNC formally resolves to make CNN/NBC choose between Hillary Clinton & primary debate access.
Whatever cuts down the number of debates, frankly. The Republican National Committee unanimously passed a resolution here Friday to not partner with NBC or CNN on 2016 primary debates if they air Hillary Clinton projects. RNC Chairman Reince Priebus got an extended standing ovation from cheering state chairmen during the party’s summer meeting for spearheading the push. “We’re done putting up with this nonsense,” he | Read More »
Kudos to Reince Priebus, RNC
I’m usually the first to gripe about Establishment Republicans and squishes, so let me be the first out of the box to salute today’s RNC decision to nix NBC and CNN as national debate hosts due to their Hillary Clinton pimping. I am incredibly proud to have Reince Priebus as chair of the RNC today. For too long, hostile venues, biased moderators, and blatantly partisan | Read More »
Reince Priebus to CNN, NBC: drop the Hillary propaganda films, or lose primary debate access.
Their call. The head of the Republican Party threatened Monday to cut out CNN and NBC from the GOP presidential primary debates if the networks do not shelve their plans to air lengthy features on Hillary Clinton — who is widely expected to be a Democratic candidate in the 2016 election. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus accused both networks of trying to put “a | Read More »
Cruz: Conservative Courageous Competent Communicator
Senator Cruz has the 4 C’s: Conservative Courageous Competent Communicator In order to beat Hillary, Republicans have to focus. We need to rally around the best candidate early. And we have to choose a courageous fighter. He/she must be a conservative who is able to communicate. And the most important quality in this candidate must be competence. When all of these qualities coalesce in one | Read More »
The Repentance Movement
Edited by Heidi Munson I find myself, surely like many of you, pulled in numerous directions right now. I end up attending meeting after meeting, being inundated with an abundance of information. There’s work to be done, but the distractions just keep coming. We find ourselves fighting about bylaws, and, granted, bylaws need to be in place in the GOP and other caucuses, and | Read More »
About That RNC Declaration of War on Conservative Grassroots
A whole lot of people have sent me this Breitbart story asking for my comment on it. I’m not exactly known for being friendly with the establishment these days and it comports with everything I think about them. I’m not surprised by it at all. But a bunch of people who attended the meeting are defending Mike Shields. They tell me he was mischaracterized. They | Read More »
Outreach and Get Out The Vote
In developing the Growth and Opportunity Project‘s Autopsy of the 2012 election (pdf), the Republican National Committee correctly identified the reason for the party’s loss, but failed to recommend a coherent strategy to reverse it.
President Obama won by defining his opponent in a negative way, and marrying modern technology with old-fashioned boots on the ground. Republicans can do those things even better than he did, but doing so will require radically reforming the party.
