Cantina alien Reince Priebus thinks the Obama campaign “put out” the Rev. Wright story this time around because its trying to distract voters. Seriously, he said that.
“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.”
Oh yes, because every minute spent on Rev. Wright is a total win for the president and not any sort of ugly race-driven disaster. Next thing he’ll say the president is responsible for all of Romney’s various lies and gaffes, too. Distractions!
