RNC Chair: Party before Country...

Thanks to Valley Progressive for this find!

It seems that Ken Blackwell, the new Chairman of the Republican National Committee, is more concerned about his party's hold on power than in Virginians, and Americans having jobs...


"Creating 600,000 new jobs might help cement Virginia in the Democrat column, making it harder for Republicans to retake the White House."

Pretty stark statement... In an economy that lost 2.6 million jobs last year, the most in any single year since World War II, and when manufacturing is at a 28-year low, Blackwell’s, and the Republican Party's biggest concern is to block the creation of new jobs because those newly-employed Americans might vote Democratic.

And you wrote this "Before" the RNC picked a new chair. Can you see into the future?
