Jeff Sessions Should Chair the Republican Policy Committee

“It would be a setback for Republicans in general and conservatives in particular if Senator Sessions were not placed in charge of the Republican Policy Committee.”
At a time when the Republican party is struggling for ideas and consistency in principles, we would hate to see Republicans in the United States Senate hand off the Republican Policy Committee to a middle weight Senator when a heavy weight is available.


Right now, if nothing happens, the Republicans will give Kay Bailey Hutchinson the chairmanship of the RPC, the committee that fosters a lot of ideas for the Senate Republican agenda. While Senator Hutchinson is very popular in Texas, she is neither a conservative nor an outstanding policy thinker. Likewise, Senator Hutchinson had over $7.6 million cash on hand in her political war chest, a portion of which could have been used to aid the Republican cause. That did not happen.

Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama is the right choice for the Republican Policy Committee. He has the intellectual fire power, assertiveness, and -- dare we say it -- gravitas to get the Senate Republicans moving forward while in the minority.

It would be a set back for Republicans in general and conservatives in particular if Senator Sessions were not placed in charge of the Republican Policy Committee.

We need Jeff Sessions and we urge you to call your Republican Senator and make sure they know that.

They "marked it down". Specter is undecided.

YES to Sessions! (He's my Senator, so I guess I don't need to call him, huh?) :-)

I like Sen. Hutchison, but between the two of them, it's a no-brainer. Jeff Sessions wins hands-down in my book, and not just because he's one of my two Senators. He IS the right choice for the present and future of the GOP.

And what if Hutchison is my Senator, should I still call her office?

I urged his staff member to mark it down that I want Specter to throw his support to Sessions. The Staff member seemed unenthused.

Kay by joetro

I'm a big Kay fan, she is my Senator. I agree she is a bit moderate, but I really think we need a woman in leadership to combat Clinton/Pelosi.

I know that according to the left, you have to have a woman in order to deal with 'women's issues', but I wasn't aware that most Republicans saw any truth to that kind of determinism.

We need not get involved with filling some kind of quota!!!

Pick the best person for the job, period!

Madhouse Thought & Conservative News and Views

I think Republicans need to show people that they are more than just the party of white men. Consider Steele, Blackwell, etc. That is good for the party, even if they didn't win.

Who exactly will this convince, that isn't already convinced? Do you think it would change the anti-Republican propaganda one bit?

One thing I've noticed is that when the establishment rallies behind someone like Hutchinson, alot of us will support that off the bat, saying "well, I like her too," or "well, she's not that bad." No, she isn't, I like Kay Bailey Hutchinson. But why have hamburger when you can have steak. Settling for "not that bad" in our leadership has led to a mess so far for the GOP. We can't except "good enough" anymore, we need the best. Go Jeff Sessions!!!

There's not a person in Congress who does a better job of voting my views than Jeff Sessions. I'd love to see him on the Policy Committee next January and in the White House two years after that.

Kay Hutchison is exactly the type of conservative we need to take the party from where it is to where it should be. While having a 92 rating with the American Conservative Union and an A+ rating with the NRA, she also reaches across the aisle to work on issues of imortance to Americans. She consistenly votes pro-family (includiung her recent vote to prohibit people from taking juvenile females across state lines to circumvent parental notification and consent laws). I think Kay passed the bill doing away with the marriage penalty in the tax code. I do know that here in Texas she is also a big fighter for property rights and she is opposed to amnesty. She is a tax fighter, and pro-military. She not only should be the Policy Chair, she probably should be the President.

I have no bones to pick with Mr. Sessions but just think Kay is the perfect person to bring people together to lead the Republicans out of the mess in which they find themselves. I like her. In fact, i think Kay is the face of the GOP of the future.

We don't need bipartisan backbenchers right now. We need LEADERS who are willing to stand up and shout for our values. We have such a leader in Senator Santorum. Who will fill his shoes, I wonder?
