ICYMI: RNC Chairman Reince Priebus on CNN’s “State of the Union”

GOP - National Republican CommitteeWASHINGTON – This morning, Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” with Candy Crowley to discuss the upcoming vice presidential debate and the state of the race. Highlights follow:

On Unemployment Rate: When Your Getting Clobbered You Can’t Get A Field Goal And Say You’re Winning:

CHAIRMAN PRIEBUS: “Oh, I don’t think so. You know, it’s like this, Candy, if you are getting blown out in a football game but you are scoring field goals once a quarter, you can’t point to the three points every quarter and say hey, look at least we’re scoring some points. We’re still getting clobbered. The fact of the matter is the president and Joe Biden are getting clobbered on policies they put in place. They promised we’d be a heck of a lot better off than we are today, we’re nowhere close. I was in Wisconsin yesterday, have been in Ohio practically every other day. I’ll tell you what, people in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and Lima, Ohio don’t feel better off today than they were four years ago, and they don’t think this president has been very good at following through on his promises. That’s what this is going to come down to. And I’ll tell you what, last week you saw the difference, an unfiltered Mitt Romney and an unfiltered Barack Obama. You saw inspiration, heart, preparedness from Mitt Romney, and you saw a president that came in unprepared, uninspiring. You know what, maybe Clint Eastwood was right, and I think that’s what the American people saw last week.”

On VP Debate: Biden Has Been Debating Since Early 1900s:

CHAIRMAN PRIEBUS: “I think most people understand that Joe Biden has been debating for a long time. I mean, since the early 1900s, he has been debating.”

CROWLEY: “…He knows his stuff.”

CHAIRMAN PRIEBUS: “Right. I think what you see, though, in some of that polling is that some of the, you know, Joe Biden as of late has put his foot in his mouth a few times in very public ways. He said that the middle class was crushed under the policies of Obama and Biden, and he said some things that were problematic. However, Paul is a smart guy. He has committed his life to understanding the problems of our economy, presenting a plan for the American people, so I think that Paul is going to do a great job, but I also think it’s very important for people to understand, and I think people realize that Joe Biden is a gifted orator. He is very good at rhetoric, and I think he is very relatable so I think it’s two different people, and I think it’s going to be a great night.”
