DNC - Mitt Romney: Michael Steele Has Become A Distraction For GOP Candidates

Former Massachusetts governor and likely 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney became the most high-profiled Republican to date to weigh in critically against Michael Steele, saying on Thursday that the RNC chairman had become a distraction to the party.

Appearing in Manchester, New Hampshire (a common stop for those with White House ambitions) on his book tour, Romney refused to say whether he thought Steele should resign over controversial expenditures and communications mishaps.

But according to the New Hampshire Union-Leader, he didn't express much pleasure with Steele's tenure either.

"Anytime the chairman of our party becomes a story, that's a distraction for our candidates," Romney said. "I would encourage the chairman to do things that make it easier for candidates, like raising money, updating the technological base of our party and focusing on getting Republicans elected.

"I'm not going to give advice about his career, but I'm going to give advice on how to lead the RNC at this point," Romney said.

Coming from Romney, who often goes out of his way not to buck his party, the remarks reflect a growing consensus within the GOP that Steele has become a liability -- or, at the very least, deserves a public rebuke. His comments were harsher in tone than those offered earlier in the day by another perpetual Republican presidential candidate, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who defended Steele's work at the committee by noting, among other things, his fundraising prowess.

"They have raised over $100 million. They have $11 million in the bank with zero debt," Gingrich told CNN. "Here's a guy who helped win New Jersey, helped win Massachusetts, helped win Virginia. They have had the biggest fundraising month in their history, and you're raising fundraising questions?"


NHDP - NH GOP More Political Games, Budget Hypocrisy 

Concord - Remember June 2009? Back then, the legislature was putting the finishing touches on the 2010/2011 budget - and what were the Republicans saying about revenue estimates? Here's what Norm Major, the Republicans' top Ways and Means and revenue guru had to say: 

"I don't see any exaggeration in the revenues at this point in time." - Norm Major [Union Leader, June 13, 2009]
Rep. Norm Major, R-Plaistow, was among the notables to approve the budget's revenue projections. Two years ago, he fought tooth and nail against the Democrats' projections. That gave Republicans a rallying cry when the economy went south: "Norm Major warned them." This time he thinks the projections fall in the right range. [Union Leader, June 21, 2009]
But now, as Democrats continue working to clean up the mess of the George Bush recession - New Hampshire Republicans are singing another tune, lobbing false criticism about the revenue estimates and refusing to propose real solutions to the serious budget challenges facing our state.
"It's important to remember what Republicans were saying just one year ago - agreeing that revenue estimates in the budget were reasonable," said Derek Richer, press secretary for the New Hampshire Democratic Party. "Their claims today are hypocrisy, pure and simple. Rather than roll up their sleeves and help solve the state's budget changes, they prefer to play political games and hope the people won't remember what they were saying a year ago."

Democrats continue to be responsible stewards of the New Hampshire budget. During the past 30 years Republican Governors have raised general fund spending an average of 17%.  Under Governor Lynch it has been less than a third of that, and the current budget actually reduced General Fund spending.
