    Re: GOP chief drops out of race for re-election

    he oversaw our 63 seat pickup in the house, most since 1938

    our addition of 693 news state reps and 21 legislatures, most in modern history

    10 gubs, 6 senators...

    he was a poor fundraiser, the rnc is in debt

    we financed our WAVE campaign mostly with outside money

    that's the green the white house tried (for a few days) to ACCUSE us of raising from foreign sources

    when axelrod on mtp on october 10 was asked by schieffer what evidence he had that foreign cash was influencing elections, the ax answered, "well, what evidence do you have that it's not, bob"

    LOL!

    guilty til proven innocent, from the firm of the vaunted harvard law professor and his associates

    just like sarah palin

    steele's a good man, he was very gaffe-prone

    he has a future, but nowhere near as bright as the party he's still a proud member of

    party on, pals

    yes, the bottom line with steele was his bottom line

    ie, he had trouble raising money and left an rnc in debt

    the rnc, however, is not alone

    and today:

    But already some of Obama’s top financial backers are warning the White House: Raising money won’t be as easy this time around.

    “They are getting organized in Chicago to start a massive two-year campaign, which I believe will be successful, but has extraordinarily large challenges in some of the major states,” said Philadelphia philanthropist Peter Buttenweiser, who hosted one of the first Obama presidential fundraisers in 2007 and is in talks to organize an early one for the re-election.

    Obama’s team is running into resistance in at least one key fundraising hub — New York City, where some of Obama’s biggest 2008 backers have bitterly protested last year’s passage of financial reform legislation and what they perceived as an unfair bad-mouthing of bankers during the debate.

    In other places, such as Pennyslvania, top donors say Obama has to get in line behind other candidates who need the cash more urgently. And some donors are worried that the party has been slow off the mark in responding to the latest onslaught of GOP fundraising, millions of dollars raised from secret donors by a variety of Republican outside groups, including two associated with former Bush advisers Karl Rove and Ed Gillespie.

    Wealthy donors and the Democratic operatives anxious to start up competing outside organizations that can blunt the Rove groups are growing frustrated as they await more specific direction from the Obama team about what form those efforts should take and who should lead them.

    In interviews, several said two developments could quickly set things in motion: Creation of an outside group by an obvious Obama insider, or a major donation from a high level Obama supporter, such as Chicago fundraiser Penny Pritzker, to an existing group.

    So far, neither of those things has occurred even as the GOP groups ready themselves for the race. “We are stumbling around,” said one Democratic fundraiser and activist.

    WI presents its proud progressive tradition, laboratory for liberal ideas, all the way back to fighting bob lafollette, one of the nation's leading teddy roosevelt republicans

    and we all know about madison
