|Steele, back when Priebus was standing in the cut.....|
You may recall that Priebus was once a staunch Steele deputy, before challenging him in the 2011 chairman election. Some Twitter conservatives weren't too pleased with Mr. Steele's slam. They called it a "nastygram", "classless", a "parody", and charged that he is comparing apples and oranges (midterm election cycle to a presidential election cycle).
However, other folks agreed with the moderate-conservative Republican. These folks said that Tuesday's results made them nostalgic for his leadership, and said that he delivered on the electoral front. People thanked him "for never shunning the Tea Party (and Gov Palin) like @Reince has done", as well as urged him to run for another term so he can "save the GOP".
