(CNN) – Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele filled a key staff position Monday, naming Trevor Francis to head the RNC's communications division.
“I am excited to be adding Trevor, a communications strategist with extensive private sector, political and government experience, to my team,” Steele said in a statement. “Filling key staff positions, together with analyzing and implementing the findings of our top-to-bottom review of the committee’s operations, will help the RNC spread our message and elect more Republicans."
The selection marks the new communications director’s second tenure at the RNC. He previously worked under former chairmen Haley Barbour and Jim Nicholson. The Burson-Marsteller managing director also worked on George W. Bush's 2000 presidential campaign, later serving as a press secretary in his administration.
Did the Lush Limbaugh approve this appointment????
I hear by call for a 3rd party to be formed. Please split the GOP between reasonable Republicans and Conservative Republicans. This way Rush can lead his own party and Meagan McCain can lead hers. Mike will have to go with Rush and carry his pills and cigars.
Good grief, I hope he got Rush Limbaugh's approval on this first.
Reviewed by Carl Rove and approved by Republican Spokesman, Rush Limbaugh.
Steele, I think Rush told you to Hush and you did not even Blush. How could you just take a slap from him like that and keep going? You should resign.
I don't care about the messenger or how the message gets to me.
This Republican doesn't like what he is hearing from Rush Limbaugh, Michael Steele, John Boehner or Mitch McConnell.
What the Republican Party needs to do is to ... get a new message.
Steele, notice how nobody on this page is comming to your aid? That is because they all lost respect for you when you let Rush cave your head in. Where is your self respect. I thought it was bold of you to stand up to Rush on CNN, but then you caved. Then when you made your view known on gays and abortion I thought "wow, a new GOP" but then you went belly up once again. You really need to make a stand. If Obama was a weak as you Clinton would be President. Take a stand and stop back tracking.
Was this "blessed" by Rush Limbaugh?
Blah, blah, blah.... who cares. Communications? WHAT communications? YOU guys suck to high heaven. Your reputation has gone down with the titanic never to be heard of again!!
And the circus show continues. This guy is a clown, NO one, NOT even his own party takes him as being credible!!
