ICYMI: Chairman Priebus: "Obama Stands in the Way of Change"

- September 25, 2012

Excerpts from Breitbart


By: Chairman Reince Priebus

September 25, 2012


"In an unaired excerpt of President Obama's recent 60 Minutes interview, he conceded that his own campaign's television ads sometimes go 'overboard' and "mistakes are made." But, he says, 'That happens in politics.'

"In the same interview--the part that did air--President Obama said his 'biggest disappointment is that we haven't changed the tone in Washington as much as I would have liked.'...

"The candidate that promised change says he can't deliver. He's given up. To most Americans, that would sound like a reason to change leaders...

"The president can talk a good game about bipartisanship and working together, but Mitt Romney actually has a record to support it. In Massachusetts, the state legislature was over 85 percent Democrat. Faced with this divide, Gov. Romney didn't go on television and disingenuously complain about the 'tone.' He found common ground and got to work.

"He balanced the budget every year he was in office. He cut spending, and he cut taxes. The state faced a $3 billion shortfall when he came into office, but they had $2 billion in a Rainy Day Fund when he left.

"He worked to improve education for all, and during his time in office the unemployment rate decreased to 4.7 percent. That's leadership. That's change. And that's a stark contrast with President Obama.

"The president did not just fail to find solutions. He made the problems worse. We don't need more talk of change--from the outside or from the inside; we need a president who can produce it."
