I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving break. I know some of my hardcore readers wanted a little content to hold them over for some of the break but I needed a little break. It’s great to be back, and we have a lot to discuss.
GOP Central Committee meets this weekend.
My sources tell me that there will not be a chairman vote; that will be held till their January meeting. So this weekend’s gathering will be more about the direction of the party since the losses on November 4th.
Personally, I have never liked the fact that Iowa Republicans wait so long to elect their new leader. By the time a new chair is elected 3 months will have passed, three months we will never get back in rebuilding the Party apparatus. At our current rate a new Chair will be elected in January, and staff will be brought in sometime in February. While 3 months is too long to go without a chair election, the Party can’t go without a fundraising operation for 4 months.
As we get fired back up after the break we will be discussing some of the things that our representatives on the SCC should discuss at their meeting this weekend. Please add your thoughts in the comment section.
Terror Attacks in India
I don’t know if I’m the only one but the Thanksgiving Terror attacks in India scare the crap out of me. The rocky relations between India and Pakistan are well known, and could escalate at a moment’s notice. Both countries have nuclear weapons, and with America in a time of transition, we are not able to play a meaningful proactive role in calming the tensions between the two. While America is focused on its financial crisis, we still need to be the voice of reason around the world.
