On the Hill (Axelrod, RNC, Pat Quinn)

Been awhile since an "On the Hill" segment. Take a look at what the blathering herd has to say today. So, without further adieu, here it is; Axelrod says he won't be another Rove, RNC soul for sale, and Chicago Lt. Governor Quinn as confused as Blago.

Axelrod says he won’t be another Rove

The Hill.com-Incoming White House adviser David Axelrod said Sunday that he will focus on helping the country and not spend his time worrying about President-elect Obama’s reelection.

“Our view is that we’ve got tremendous challenges in this country right now, and what we should be thinking about is how we’re going to address those and not the next election,” Axelrod said on NBC’ “Meet the Press” when asked to compare his role to that of former Bush adviser Karl Rove. “And if we do that well, the next election will take care of itself."

Axelrod stated that his job would be to help “disseminate the message of Barack Obama, working with the communications team to make sure that we’re true to the ideals and the values and the programs that he wants to advance in this country.” read more...

Hmm, doesn't sound much different from what Rove did. After all, he progressed Bush policies and completely strayed from campaign promises. Kind of like what the Obama administration is doing right now. Axelrod may not be trying to be like Rove, he sounds like he is trying to one up him.

Ideology steers RNC chairman race

The Hill.com-A battle for the soul of the Republican Party has spilled over into the contest for national committee chairman, as conservative members are prodding candidates to shift their way.

Now that the presidential campaign is over and the congressional leadership elections are settled, conservative activists are turning to the race for chairman as their next chance to shape the party.

Already, one candidate has come under fire for his association with a centrist organization, while a group of prominent RNC members is set to put others through an exhaustive test of their personal conservatism. read more...

Battle for the heart and soul? Most of the 168 member voting bloc of the RNC are as brain dead as the candidates they have been putting up for elections. Instead of listening to gang of 168, here is a new approach for us; try listening to the everyday conservative who is in the trenches. They might be able to steer the Party in the right direction, where the "intellects" have failed.

Quinn predicts Blagojevich will be removed soon

The Hill.com-Illinois Lt. Gov. Pat Quinn (D) on Sunday predicted that the state legislature would remove Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D) from office before Abraham Lincoln’s 200th birthday on February 12.

The Illinois state House can impeach Blagojevich with a simple majority, and it takes two-thirds of the Senate to convict.

“There’s far more [senators] than that ready to” remove Blagojevich, the lieutenant governor claimed on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” read more...

Seems like everybody up in Chi-Town is living in a dream world. Blagojevich for thinking he didn't do anything wrong, Madigan for thinking she could get him proven mentally unfit for office, and now the Lt. Gov. for promising he will be out by Feb. 12th. Personally I don't see it happening, just MHO though.
