He'll bring the chicken... and 'tater salad... and his lavish spending has pissed off RNC donors
Michael Steele's spending spree angers donors
Republican National Chairman Michael Steele is spending twice as much as his recent predecessors on private planes and paying more for limousines, catering and flowers – expenses that are infuriating the party's major donors who say Republicans need every penny they can get for the fight to win back Congress.
Most recently, donors grumbled when Steele hired renowned chef Wolfgang Puck's local crew to cater the RNC's Christmas party inside the trendy Newseum on Pennsylvania Avenue, and then moved its annual winter meeting from Washington to Hawaii.......I often don't agree with Steele, but that is quite ironic since Obama is their "African American" figure head.hlthe2b Donating Member (1000+ posts)
4. But, having an African American Republican figurehead......
It's the only reason he was elected. With the same qualifications if he were Caucasian he would have been laughed out of the primary.

5. Keep spending Mr. Steele
Take their cash and spend it foolishly in an attempt to buy their admiration. Mr Steele, you are their token. You'll never be anything more. They used you to garner black votes, now make them pay for it big time.
