  • I respect him, but I think it's time for him to go. He has been a pretty poor messenger for the GOP.

  • But the former Maryland lieutenant governor was gaffe-prone in his outspokenness, and critics within the GOP saw him as inept at fund-raising. Put off by Steele’s personal style and RNC management, some major donors began shifting to congressional campaign funds, the Republican Governors Association, and other conservative causes.


    “The party, under his leadership, failed to raise the major-donor money that is required to defeat Barack Obama,” former RNC finance director Gentry Collins told the Wall Street Journal. Collins had resigned over alleged fiscal mismanagement by Steele.

  • he got the nod because he was a black republican...he was inept from the start ..and yet many defended him relentlessly...


    As the first African American to head the RNC, Steele was seen as a counterpoint to the first African American president.

  • It doesn't matter. There are two sides to the party now, and no matter who they put in there, half of them will dedicate themselves to getting rid of them, just like they are now. The only thing that might change is which half is pissed off.

  • Probably, there is just to much discourse now.
