    Oh dear, now it is getting wild

  • devietro

    Vance is a great guy from the times I have met him and I dont know Bob. Does Vance want the job again? Who else has announced a run?

    • Big Red Pen

      Well I would go ahead and just venture a guess that Bob Tiernan has announced a run…

  • JessseO

    I presume you’re talking about Bob Tiernan?

    Автор, ну ты блин даёшь) вчера аж в пять утра заснула)

  • Dick J. Osborne

    I think it odd Mr. Tiernan has not been to any Republican event or meeting in years.
    Last Sat. he attended the State Convention and did not introduce himself to anyone.
    Vance has done a good job and I believe he is now in a position to reset the Republican base. “Bob Who”

  • Dan

    The fact alone that Tiernan has not attended any Republican event or meeting in years is enough to qualify him for the leadership position.

    It’s painfully obvious that Participation does NOT equal competence.

    Welcome back, B-1 Bob. Now, impress me with your ideas.

  • timothy

    I say get rid of the entire leadership and replace with new people. Whatever they’ve been doing over the last 20 years hasn’t worked, so why keep them around.

  • Pat Ryan

    Run Bob Run.

    Now that the public seems to be sick and tired of Right wing culture warriors, the anti-government and anti-union fixation, and the intellectual and economic bankruptcy of unregulated capitalism, what the Republicans really need to do is lurch further to the Right.

    The reality based world salutes your determination to render yourselves completely irrelevant.

    Any chance you could bring back a few other Brain Surgeons like Wayne Scott and Tootie Smith, while you’re at it?

    • Joe the “non-plumber”

      Vance holds a meeting Saturday for the sole reason that three meetings are required to be had in the ORP bylaws; he’s only held two.

      So, he uses it to present a dog and pony show for his own re-election.

      Party members learned there that the debt incurred under his and the previous lawyer/chair’s tenure is down to a mere $100k. And that is if you ignore a $76k bill to AT&T (which he apparently wants to do, just imagine it doesn’t exist.).

      His case: The party is “trending” in the right direction. Really. It would trend better through competent leadership.

      The election for a new party chair in January is about competence equally as much as it is about ideology.

      The fact that the chair couldn’t find enough meaningful tasks to have at least three meaningful meetings this year, isn’t that alone enough to indict his leadership?

      And as the meeting progressed, I must say that I’ve never heard such talking down to members of a group as what came out of this slip-n-fall lawyer’s mouth.

      At the end of the meeting, in his closing argument (he conducts meetings like a trial), he actually wanted members to close their eyes and picture being some kind of civil war combattant and imagine why they had run for the position they were in.

      As a jury, I was ready to settle. Settle for new leadership and nothing short of it. I wanted to imagine why anyone would ever vote for this empty-suited act.

  • Bob Tiernan

    If “he attended the State Convention and did not introduce himself to anyone”, then he was observing and not schmoozing. That’s not a bad thing. I hate people who come by to introduce themselves not because they’re interested in who you are, but because they are campaigning.

    A Different Bob Tiernan

  • Bob Tiernan

    “….unregulated capitalism” ????

    What are you talking about? If we had unregulated capitalism we wouldn’t have Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and mega-tons of regulatory oversight (yes, our economy is heavily regulated), but I guess you wouldn’t recognize real free enterprise if it had a sign on its head and bit you on the nose). What we have is closer to mercantalism.

    What we have seen in the past several months is a failure of the managed, mixed economy.

    Oh, and I should clarify that the meeting Tiernan attended on 12/6 was not the state convention, which was held in July. It was a meeting of the state central committee. (I attended both of them, FWIW.)

    Now back to the fracas….
