Tag: RNC chair
By jenkuz, Section News
I don't pretend to know and understand the ins and outs of internal party races like the RNC chair race, but I do know this, it makes sense for former MIGOP chairman Saul Anuzis to become chairman of the Republican National Committee.
Saul has been the first to throw in for the race, and Steele is expected to announce his intentions this evening. Others who have formally announced according to Anuzis' blog are "former Bush Administration Official Maria Cino, RNC Legal Counsel & WI Chair Reince Priebus,"and," Ambassador Ann Wagner." Still, it is not clear if former Republican National Committee political director Gentry Collins is in yet, Collins left the RNC in a huff decrying Steele's ineptness at fundraising and his mismanagement of funds, nor is it clear if former RNC chair Mike Duncan is in. Regardless, the field is crowded, and may get more so.
Putting aside all the politicking, my purpose for encouraging endorsements for Saul Anuzis is from a purely grassroots level.

One of the things that made Reagan so successful was that he had a strong rudder and knew where he was going. He didn't let the "facts" change his mind. When presented with information counter to what he knew was right, he just told them to get him some new facts.
Recently folks have been talking about personal responsibility and families (not family values). These issues resonate with most Americans and speak truth. If these issues are to be our rudder, our leaders can't be thrown off course by the "big tent" theory. With that in mind, here is an e-mail I got from a friend of mine, Chuck Moran. Enjoy!
I just wanted to throw out some thoughts I had this morning with regards to Saul Anuzis' run for RNC Chairman as well as the direction the Party is headed in the future.
Let me start right off by saying that I have spoken to Saul many times in the past and found him energetic and affable. He is a good speaker and is far from being lazy. At this point in time, I am not saying he is my candidate for the position of RNC Chair, but if he won I wouldn't throw myself out a window either. Please do your homework on this important issue.
My problem is the direction of the Party itself. Prior to the 2006 gubernatorial race in Michigan, I wrote Saul and Party Chief, Chuck Yob, that "the average voter cannot tell the difference between a Democrat and a Republican" after these men supported Joe Schwartz for U.S. Representative in Michigan's 7th Congressional District. While I have no personal animus towards Joe, I believed he did not reflect the traditional Republican values his constituents desired such as protecting the unborn and not supporting embryonic stem cell research. This runs counter to the traditional GOP platform and blurs the distinction of who is the liberal in the race. My suggestion was to not support anyone in the race if they couldn't come right out and support Joe's conservative opponent. Mr. Schwartz lost to Tim Walberg in that race. Since that time, I believe Saul has gotten "Conservative Religion". Read on....
