Steele to All the GOP Haters: “I Ain’t Going Anywhere”

July 8, 2010

RNC Chairman Michael Steele

Amid calls once again for his resignation, RNC Chairman Michael Steele is striking a defiant tone.

I ain’t going anywhere

“Every time something happens, people say ‘he should step down’.  The reality is that’s not happening, so stop the noise on that. You don’t need the distraction. We’re focused on winning.”

To paraphrase Dan Riehl’s observation, we can resign ourselves to his not resigning.

Politics is a tough world and Steele has taken some hard knocks lately, but the reality of the situation is that the RNC Chairman is never going to voluntarily step down.

The sad fact of the matter is that I’d much rather be discussing Republican candidates than the RNC Chairman, but Steele has a knack for making headlines and almost always for reasons that leave a nasty stain on the GOP.

The good news is that it has been nearly a week since Steele’s last gaffe.

Hopefully that trend will continue through November.
