GOP puzzled as Steele courts ambassadors

The Republican National Committee is trying to set up meetings between Chairman Michael Steele and foreign ambassadors to the United States, according to an email obtained by POLITICO – an effort that has puzzled diplomats as well as fellow Republicans.

An RNC intern sent a message late last month to at least one ambassador on behalf of Neil Alpert, a senior finance aide, with little explanation.

“As you know, the November election is just 103 days away and the Chairman would like to extend to you an invitation to sit down either at the RNC or at your embassy to discuss the upcoming 2010 midterm elections,” wrote Christopher Kelleher, a finance department intern. “With literally hundreds of congressional seats up for grabs in just under four months, Chairman Steel [sic] would love to have the opportunity to discuss the Party’s outlook with you.”

NEWT GINGRICH ON MIDTERM ELECTIONS

    I was a Republican for many years…the party is no longer what it used to be so now I’m an Independent. With the RNC chairmans antics and running John McCain in the last Presidential race, they lost me forever, unless, of course, they would get back to their conservative roots.

      I hope you two can still vote in the Republican primary as Independents where you live. Don’t leave the playing field to the enemy. We don’t do it in war, we don’t do it in sports, and I’ll be dead before I do it in politics.

      Remember, Reagan had to take back his party from the Nixons, Fords and Rockefellers. We’ve got to take it back from the Bushs, McCains, and Grahams.
