Default Priebus to stay on as RNC chairman

What say you? Do you like Priebus as the RNC chairman? If not, who would you recommend or like to see in the position?

Quote:
Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus plans to stay on for another term.

Priebus is well-liked by his colleagues and has been largely spared from blame for last week's election results. He's secured the backing of most other committee members, and no one has emerged to run against him at this point. A source familiar with Priebus's plans confirmed his decision.

The former Wisconsin GOP head took over a committee in a shambles two years ago and helped turn around its fundraising apparatus as well as improve the party's weak ground game.

But Republicans have called publicly and privately for further improvement in the party's get-out-the-vote efforts. Former RNC Chairman and Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (R), who is seen as a Priebus ally, said earlier this week that the party needs "to give our political organization a very serious proctology exam" before the next election.

Meh...

It's just as well he stay...The Republicans have a VERY strong bullpen...But they're not quite warmed up yet...

Might as well keep Priebus on until the rookies are ready...

The Republicans do have some very promising rising stars within their party.

cnredd, if you were single-handedly responsible for selecting the RNC chairman, whom would you pick?

I would probably go for an old hat to groom the rookies...But that old hat would HAVE to understand that he/she is only there to mold the new breed, and it's NOT a long term proposition (which is why I say it's just as well Priebus stays around)...

I just went to wiki's RNC page...To be honest, I don't even know 95% of these people, so I know the names of people I'd like to see in there 5 or 6 years from now, but not the current crop...

I don't like him. I suppose I am not supposed to but I think he has a hatful streak to him that I found a bit over the top. But that is their call. Personally I am tired of all the hate. Axelrod can run a campaign without being so strident.

What specifically has he said to cause you to believe he has a "hatful" streak?

Hateful.. I found that lost e


Oh I didn't keep track. I didn't know there would be a test. I do remember him calling folks "Dirty Liars" and that "Obama has blood on his hands" Just a bit harsher than I think is needed. He just seemed to have a real hatred with the "Enemy".

But like I said that seems to be ok for the right. Just as we talked about the "Right wing entertainment complex" It's a promoted attitude amongst the right. Separatism. Real Americans vs. those European socialist hordes.

Funny isn't it? I mean left wing hate radio doesn't work. Left wing hate authors don't do so well. What does that say?

But anyway I was just giving my opinion after observing him for a while. Scott Brown isn't busy and I think he is more what the RNC needs. Not these grumpy little pinheads (stoled that from O'Rielly)

Nice sentiment, but you go it wrong...

Axelrod is NOT Prebius' counterpart on the Democrat side...

That would be super-mega-uber-hater Debbie Wasserman-Schlitz Beer"...
