Advice to the GOP

The Republican National Committee has just issued a report on how to reform the GOP message in order to win the presidency in 2016. They intend to reduce the number of debates and hold the national convention in June, 2016. That is a very good idea to avoid the hurricane season which disrupted both the 2008 and 2012 conventions. In addition, I would suggest that the GOP not hold their convention on the East Coast, the Gulf Coast, or south of San Francisco on the West Coast. They might even consider Alaska which never sees a hurricane or a typhoon.

Michael Steele was chairman of the RNC (Republican National Committee) from January, 2009, to January, 2011. He was defeated in his re-election attempt by Reince Priebus. I held a negative opinion of Steele because of what he said about Barack Obama. However, since he left the RNC, his expressed opinions have become, in my opinion, much more reasonable. According to Rachel Maddow, Steele’s record as chairman of the RNC was much more successful than that of Priebus. I have grown to like the guy. He is the kind of Republican that the party and the country need more of.

Reince Priebus is the chairman of the Republican National Committee. He has indicated that he intends to run for re-election to the post in January, 2013. If he is re-elected, it will indicate that the GOP has learned nothing from the recent election. If Mitt Romney had won, Mitt would have selected his candidate for the post of chairman of the RNC.

Reince Priebus recently called Harry Reid a “dirty liar.” What did he mean by that? In GOP-speak, words frequently mean the opposite of what you and I commonly understand their meaning. Why would Priebus call Reid a clean, speaker of truths? I don’t know his motivation; we would have to ask him and I would not trust his answer.
