JUST WHAT WE NEED… Obamacare Lobbyist Maria Cino Is Running For RNC Chairmanship

Is this really what the Republican Party needs going into 2012?


Maria Cino, the former Deputy Secretary of the United States Department of Transportation under President George W. Bush announced her intention of running for the chairmanship of the Republican National Committee in November. She has a distinguished career as a politician in the Republican Party. Maria Cino also worked as an Obamacare lobbyist for Pfizer, the world’s largest research-based pharmaceutical company since 2009. Pfizer CEO Jeffrey kindler was a staunch supporter of Obamacare. According to the Wall Street Jounal,

No one pushed harder (for Obamacare) than Mr. Kindler. The CEO made no fewer than five trips to the White House last year… He wrote an op-ed with the SEIU’s Mr. Stern demanding reform. He pressed the industry’s $150 million ad campaign promoting ObamaCare, rolled out with liberal activist groups.

Since 2009 Marian Cino worked as a lobbyist for this pro-Obamacare company. Now she wants to be the chair of the Republican National Committee?
Does anyone else have a problem with this?

Dan Riehl has the goods on Cino at Big Government including her $1,000 donation to liberal Mike Castle in the Delaware primary.

UPDATE: MrGoodWrench nailed it in the comments:

Cino = Conservative In Name Only

    Sounds like chair of the DNC would be more appropriate for her.

  • Sooooooo…….the RNC doesn’t want ANY more money.

    Ok, then.

    Who is a major stockholder of Pfizer? George Soros, of course.

    RNC is slated for destruction long term. It is an institution that has outlived its purpose.

    I can see THIRD party from my window. You had better believe that if the Rep. Party is so stupid — or should I say, determined to undermine the Tea Party effect — as to elect Cino as RNC chair, then I will exert maximum effort to see them consigned to the dustbin of history.

    Republican Party, you are skating on VERY thin ice.

    Sounds like a mole, doesn’t she?

  • Picric

    I can only hope that who ever they choose to be the chair will call out snide comments or will bring a hammer when asked stupid questions.

  • chuck in st paul

    The national GOP seems to have learned absolutely nothing. 2012 is going to be interesting.

  • Homer

    I think her candidacy is over before it even starts. Really, like she has a prayer?

  • Just A Thought …, Or Two.

    This jogs my memory. I’m haviing a vague recollection here. Please refresh my memory.

    Wasn’t it that ambitious and unscrupulous Maria creature and a bunch of other bitchy women affiliated with the RNC who tried to undermine Steele and to sabotage his nomination to be the head of the RNC, oh, as I recall, about 5 or 6 years ago??? And as I vaguelly recall, also, they kept trying to viciously undermine him even after he was appointed head of the RNC. I am sure that I read that or heard that somewhere, with emphasis on the extent of that Maria creature’s sneakiness, viciousness and treachery.

  • bitterclinger

    Yes!!!!!! If the RNC does this, Sarah Palin wins the election going away!

  • JimmyT

    OH, they get it! They just think it’s a fad that will fade over time. They get what we’re saying, they just think they will wait us out. What they don’t get, is the level of intensity of the movement. What they don’t understand is that Americans are just as mad at themselves, as they are at the politicians, for allowing this to happen. As I have stated before, it will take 2 election cycles to prove to the elites this movement is real and 3 cycles to the right people in place to affect change.

  • PCM

    Just what we need, another mole. Palin for RNC chairman!

  • Robb76

    Hell guys and guyettes, she’s a cinch to get the job. She is an insider. And you all know how well the insiders have served us.


  • mercadorudy

    That name says it all Si No.

  • Mikey

    No way, no way, no way. It would be a sure reelection for Obama. If they go for this, I will become and Independent. We might as well have Hillary running the RNC. Who’s lame idea was this?

  • kato

    I think she’d make a great leader for the Clueless Party. Too bad she ‘s not black, so that the party can keep groveling for votes it will never get.

  • lethargic

    Third Party time! Drink the Kool-aid, Maria.

    I hope the RNC is smart enough to see through this woman

  • BS61

    How long do you suppose it will be before Karl Rove and Charles Krauthammer come out in support of her?!

  • Mad Hatter

    Dear Maria Cino,

    Please look at the Republican Primary Election results across the country from the past year. In addition, look at the Mid Term Election results. Understand that Republicans in Democrat clothing are not wanted by the true Conservatives in this Country.

    If you seek a position in Government, apply at the White House for a Czar position, I’m sure you’ll fit in perfectly.

    Thank you for your time, now go F.O.


    A Reagan Conservative.

  • Miss Smith

    If she gets it, then that’s proof that the republican party is no different from the dems.

  • Taxpayer1234

    DON’T DO IT!!! PFIZER IS THE BORG!!! Cino is a Borg drone!!!

  • savage24

    The more that come the worst they get. The GOP is working hard to become the third party.

  • silentcal_rox

    obamacare/clairecare lobbyist, NOT ACCEPTABLE!!

  • Okie

    I stumbled across this hater site thanks to Google. Having worked with Maria off/on since 1999, I am convinced you posters haven’t a clue. She will be the most successful RNC chair since Haley Barbour. We (Republicans, that is, not you wanna be pundits) someone who can raise money to retire the enormous debt M. Steele has left behind plus focus the operations on taking back the WH in 2012.
