ICYMI: RNC Chairman Reince Priebus on ABC's "This Week"

- August 6, 2012

"This president, is the head of this country and he has not fulfilled the mission."

WASHINGTON--This morning, Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus appeared on ABC's "This Week" with George Stephanopoulos to discuss the anniversary of America's credit downgrade and the lies and divisiveness of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

On Harry Reid's Baseless Attacks On Mitt Romney: "I'm Not Going To Respond To A Dirty Liar."

CHAIRMAN PRIEBUS: "Do we want to continue down the direction of unemployment above 8% for countless months? This president hasn't fulfilled the mission hasn't fulfilled the promises of three or four years ago. Do we want to continue that direction? Heck no. As far as Harry Reid is concerned, listen, you might want to go down that road, I'm not going to respond to a dirty liar, who hasn't filed a single page of tax returns himself. He complains about money but lives in the Ritz Carlton here, down the street. If this is on the agenda, I'm not going to go there. This is just a made-up issue. The fact that we're going to spend any time talking about it is just ridiculous."

STEPHANOPOULOS: "You just called him a dirty liar. Do you stand by that? Do you think Harry Reid is a dirty liar?"

CHAIRMAN PRIEBUS: "I just said it."

STEPHANOPOULOS: "So, what do you want from him right now?"

CHAIRMAN PRIEBUS:"Listen, this president has a job to do and Harry Reid has a job to do. We have an opportunity in this country to save the very idea of America. To bring back the days of liberty, freedom, the American dream and the fact is, we're just --- we're not doing well right now as an economy. This president, is the head of this country and he has not fulfilled the mission and he hasn't lived up to the promises that he made to the people of this country. And it's hard to believe that the president of 2008, when he campaigned and said that he was going to bring America together, that he would trot out Harry Reid and try to divide this country and spread this division and hatred, it's ridiculous, wrong and it's untrue. It's going to hurt the president..."
