Look What You Made Me Do

RNC Chair Reince Priebus said it was President Obama’s fault that some G.O.P. strategist came up with the plot to attack him with Rev. Wright. No, seriously.

“I know how it works,” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus insisted to CNN’s Candy Crowley. “It’s the Democrats and Barack Obama that want the story out there. He wants this story to play out in the media because for every day that [Obama strategist] David Axelrod and this President don’t have to talk about their broken promises when it comes to jobs, the debt, and the deficit — and the more time they can talk about hypotheticals that may or may not come true — is a day they want to win on.”

He added: “So, look, this president’s got a bigger problem and his problem is no matter what he puts out there, no matter what distractions he puts out there, he can’t change the truth and escape the reality of where we are in this American economy. And it’s no good.”

I could swear that the G.O.P. is run by twelve-year-olds, but that would be an insult to the adolescent set.
