Mee-OW! Ex-RNC Chair Michael Steele takes swipe at Reince Priebus over election losses

@steele_michael spiking the football on @reince. Not unexpected.

According to the Daily Caller, RNC Chair Reince Priebus is still deciding whether or not he will seek re-election when his term is up in January. Priebus took the reins from Steele after the 2010 elections:

Priebus was elected to the post in 2011 by defeating Chairman Michael Steele amid criticism of Steele’s leadership and spending practices at the committee.

“He inherited a mess at the RNC,” Barbour said of Priebus. “The donors were upset. We were broke. We were in about a $25 million hole. And he was able to turn all of that around and go out and really establish himself as a strong spokesman for our party.”

But it seems that Steele won’t be among those pushing for Priebus to stick around.

Some people weren’t too keen on Steele’s swipe:

mt @steele_michael: Say what you want about our spending while running the RNC, at least we won elections. #nastygram

@steele_michael – oh c’mon, man. You won MIDTERMS. You’re knowledgeable enough to understand why that difference is meaningful.

@steele_michael Please tell me this is a parody account. What’s to be gained from this?

But others, frustrated at the GOP’s losses on Tuesday, stood behind him:

@steele_michael So true! It makes me nostalgic!

@steele_michael Thank you for never shunning the Tea Party (and Gov Palin) like @reince has done.

@mark85nh2 @steele_michael He won us elections. That’s the bottom line.

— Kyle Raccio (@kyleraccio) November 8, 2012

The stupidest decision the Republican establishment made was to throw out RNC Chairman @steele_michael, after a historic midterm election

— Kyle Raccio (@kyleraccio) November 8, 2012

Two years ago I questioned the decision to remove @steele_michael from RNC Chair — completely unreal considering how we won in 2010

— Kyle Raccio (@kyleraccio) November 8, 2012

Some Democrats even lined up behind him:

@steele_michael you r ok for a Republican! You were the better Republican Chair!

@steele_michael You have been vindicated Mr. Steele.Ur party needs ur voice.Instead, like most of the country, they shut up & shut u out

— KingsCupRun27 (@KingsCupRun27) November 8, 2012

@steele_michael As a staunch democrat, I agree with you 100%. If it was my party, I’d be PO’d at the DNC. @reince shld pay attention.

— Patrick Kenney (@PatrickKenney2) November 8, 2012

And a few are encouraging him to switch teams:

@steele_michael are you ready to join the Democratic Party. The door is open, u will be appreciated?

— freedom fighter (@Nojustice1) November 9, 2012

@steele_michael Still not sure why youstay red and not switch toblue.They will never give you credit for 2010.

Priebus has yet to return fire.
