RNC chairman wants to focus on year-round commitment



Published: Fri, April 4, 2014 @ 8:53 p.m.

SALEM

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus says his party needs to be more consistent.

Specifically, Preibus said Friday before the Columbiana County Republican Party’s Lincoln Day Dinner at the Salem Community Center that it needs to do more than just win midterm elections.

The party also needs to win presidenital elections.

Preibus was the keynote speaker at Friday’s dinner, which also featured other prominent state Republicans, such as Ohio Republican Party Chairman Matt Borges, U.S. Rep. Bill Johnson and Ohio Supreme Court Justices Sharon Kennedy and Judith French.

Preibus said that while he thinks Republicans will do well in the upcoming midterm elections, especially in the Senate, they have to carry that momentum over into presidential elections. The party has lost the last two, both to President Obama.

“We have to be a party that’s good at winning presidential elections,” Preibus said.

Preibus said one of his main goals in getting ready for the 2016 presidential election is improving the party’s use of electronic and social media in elections. He also said he wants to tone down the rhetoric among candidates in some of their primaries because sometimes a bruising interparty brawl can carry over to the fall against a Democratic opponent.

“We’re killing each other all over the place,” Preibus said.

With such great leadership like Sarah Palin, Mitt-Flopper and Rush The Drug Addict, how much more "consistent" can you get?
They should get the entire party to put their heads together to form the worlds largest rock pile!!

preibus is focused on suppressing the vote, on not extending unemployment compensation, on not raising the minimum wage, on not paying woman the same as men, and finally preibus and the repubs in congress are focused on hating the first black president who will go down as one of the best,i.e. lilly ledbetter, the affordable care act which is growing in popularity by the day and saving many lives. the repubs in congress are against anything that helps the middle class and the poor. now with the supreme courts latest to put no limits on political donations, regular folks will be hard pressed to fight against the obscene amounts of money thrown at candidates, ( see Christie, kascich, and others prostituting themselves for a wealthy billionaire in vegas last weekend. there's only one thing a repub is good for. nothing. why a middle class voter would vote for any repub is a mystery, just ignorant of the facts I think.

papa1: Unemployment hasn't been extended because practically everyone is back to work. The unemployment figures are 6.5% and falling each month if you believe those numbers. Unemployment benefits are extended during periods of high unemployment. I don't agree with the way they puled the rug out from folks. They should have phased it out.

The raise in minimum wage may be just enough to disqualify welfare benefits. Minimum wage jobs are meant to be entry level or for teens who use their pay for discretionary spending. A better solution is to create more middle income jobs providing incentive to move up the ladder.

Equal pay. How do you define inequality? If 2 people are commission based they have equal opportunity. If a man and a woman are in an office clerical position are you saying that the men are paid more than the women for the same position? If a woman is a retail clerk and a man works construction should they be paid equally? Consider the fact that women generally have responsibility for young children and compared to men may not be able to accept the number of overtime hours which also affects their earnings. Comparing yearly salary does not give a true picture unless you are comparing apples to apples. Look out men. Women are now 33% more likely to earn a college degree than men. http://www.aei-ideas.org/2013/05/stun...

"hating the first black president who will go down as the best" Keep drinking the kool-aid. The dislike has nothing to do with color, only failing policies. BTW, the man is 50% white and 50% black so stop playing the race card. A nation divided will not stand.

There is nothing affordable about the ACA. Premiums may have subsidies with average Bronze plan deductibles of $5,081, a coinsurance of 30% of the physician's charge and $6,267 maximum out of pocket, people are in for real sticker shock once they start to use it. Provided their doctor or hospitals are in network.

Lastly, what middle class? It's vanishing under this administration.

76ytown, if you do the research you'll see that middle class wages today are equal to what they were in 1966. I think that was before Obama. in the last thirty years middle class wages have flatlined while the "priviledged" have soared. you have a loose screw if you believe Obama is the cause of the disappearing middle class. let's see, what Boehner and his co-horts in congress have done for the "regular folks." they have denied expanded Medicaid that will save lives in states (not all) with repub governors. they have slashed the food stamp program for millions of hard working americans who work two and three jobs, and because the repubs won't raise the minimum wage, need help. they still talk of repealing the affordable care act that, again, will save many lives and provide healthcare for millions. what will repubs run on in the fall? "sorry mr. and mrs. jones. we know that little johnny has type 1 diabetes which requires expensive materials to manage, but we're going to take that away from you now. please vote for us? the only reason many evangelical Christians vote repub is because they think, mistakenly, that repubs are pro-life. believe me, Boehner and the rest couldn't care less what happens to unborn children. repubs depend on the gullible, the low information voters, and every lie they can throw out there to get elected.

"middle class wages today are equal to what they were in 1966"

In 1966, most families were one wage earners. According to the 2012 census which is the most recent available, the median HOUSEHOLD income in the Youngstown, Warren, Boardman area is $40.686, down 7.12% in 3 years. http://www.deptofnumbers.com/income/o...
