Christmas Comes Early for Republicans


Debbie's sticking around for another term at the DNC.

Uh, you did notice that she led the effort that helped Obama win a second term?

Who was chairman of the RNC? Bueller? Bueller?

(seriously. I had to Google it.)

She's doing something right. I strongly disagree with both her politics and her hair, but she was the voice of the DNC and was ALL OVER tv, banging the drum and getting her message out. Whatever the question was, didn't matter. She got her message out, was a constant fixture out there leading the troops and arming them with quotable language and red meat.

On the RNC side, Reince "Quincy" Priebus called for a "full autopsy" of the 2012 campaign. Will he find any fault with his own actions over the last nearly 2 years? Was having 9 primary candidates (8 "notRomneys" and one "notObama") for so long a good idea?

I am betting that Debbie loved watching the 8 message-test negative ads against Romney. Free market research - turns out, painting him as a rich, out-of-touch, flip-flopping white guy is easy to do and the electorate eats it up!

Mr. Preibus (I have no idea how to prounounce either of his names, so little have I heard of him) may have managed the party, but did not lead it.

DWS staying on at the DNC is not good news. They have a leader. You don't like her. I get that. But what does the RNC have, other than a bunch of people saying "It's my turn, give me a chance.." ?

As much as I can't stand her, and I think Priebus is actually pretty damn good.

But she did a great job. It is not good that she's still there.

She is not the reason Obama won a second term. Using that logic, the reason for the Republican landslide in 2010 was attributable solely to Michael Steele. Would you really make that case?

I'm not a big fan of Priebus, and hope he is replaced in January, but he deserves a lot of credit for some unbelievable fundraising and bringing donors back that had been driven out.

The marketing crowd in Chicago deserves credit for O's win, not Debbie.

The opiate of free stuff deserves the most credit for O's win. Oh, that and O's amazingly tight campaign information team (CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, WaPost, NYT, etc).

"The Hammer" said...

I say the nerds won the race. There was a hack of Romney's get out the vote ap "According to the Romney campaign, a faulty app nicknamed Orca shutdown midway through Election Day, leaving volunteers on the ground in swing states, such as Florida, without any means to identifying Romney supporters." and I highly suspect Ohio and Florida were hacked as well (".
Call me paranoid, call me crazy (I might be both) but that don't mean I'm wrong.
But I am glad Debbie is still hanging around, God she is soooo HOT!
