Priebus Re-elected to Lead Republican National Committee

Source: New York Times

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Reince Priebus was re-elected chairman of the Republican National Committee on Friday, overcoming divisions and tensions in the party as he pledged to remake and restore the Republican brand before the Congressional elections next year and the 2016 presidential race.

He was elected with near unanimity to serve a second term at the helm of the Republican Party. He allayed concerns from some party officials and activists about the outcome of last year’s elections and sought re-election without serious opposition.

“We can stand by our timeless principles and articulate them in ways that are modern and relevant to our time and relatable to the majority of voters,” Mr. Priebus said in his speech. “And that, I believe, is how we’ll achieve a Republican renewal. That’s how we’ll grow. That’s how we’ll win.”

The election here on Friday during the annual winter meeting of the committee unfolded without the drama and dissent of two years ago when Mr. Priebus was elected after surviving seven contentious rounds of balloting to overtake Michael Steele, the embattled party chairman.

1. Proves it....the whole party is made up of fools.

It also gives me more reason to believe that Michael Steele was a token choice, since they kicked him out after a win and kept this fool after a trouncing.

8. Just part of the GOP's effort to change their "image".....

People have got to stop thinking of Teapublicans as either the rich guy from monopoly or some low information goober.
With his hansom appearance and striking personality Reince Priebus is just the man for the job!

On second thought, you're right.
Ick.

10. wow.. thought for sure his head would roll.. total fail.

He was worse than Steele, which is saying alot...and not only as a spokesman, but as someone else said, he's "Icky" , and i would ad, shady and unlikeable. Maybe he was re-elected because no one else wanted the job lol!!

I take this as good news and a sign of further dysfunction in the GOP.

11. “We can stand by our timeless principles"

Sustain the Corporatocracy, keep the war machine sated, strip civil rights and a living wage from the unwashed masses, drape it all in a flag and a cross.

13. They don't want to change..

There is no way they can attract minorities, women, gays etc.. with a dude named Reince Priebus running the show. Sounds like an illegal sex act more than a name. Also, he is a giant douche. Makes me thing Rinse Pubis...

18. That's the best news I've heard all day

Maybe we can lend the GOP Terry McAuliffe to help in their efforts at self-destruction. It's just the friendly thing to do.
