RNC Chairman Priebus Statement on Obama’s Politically Motivated “Jobs” Speech

By Matt Sauvage

WASHINGTON – The Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement regarding the president’s politically motivated ‘jobs’ speech next Wednesday:

“President Obama’s decision to address Congress at the same time as a long-scheduled Republican Presidential debate cements his reputation as Campaigner-in-Chief.  While the White House claims it’s simply a ‘coincidence,’ the American people can see right through that excuse.  The President has had months to get to work on the economy, but instead he chose to take a taxpayer-funded campaign trip and a cushy Martha’s Vineyard vacation.  If the President were serious about putting ‘country before politics,’ as he said in his request to speak to Congress, he wouldn’t be caught in such a thinly-veiled political ploy.  This is yet another reminder that the President is out of touch and out of ideas.  The only job he seems to care about is his own.”
