Posted on 08/27/2012 3:30:17 PM PDT by Kaslin
In an exclusive one-on-one interview with Townhall, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus blasted MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews over their contentious on-air exchange earlier today. Priebus said Matthews seemed "intent on taking the banner of being the biggest jerk in the room," described Matthews' delivery as "spitting," and disparaged the host's nightly program as "not serious" with an audience of "ten viewers:"

On today's Morning Joe, Matthews accused Priebus and the GOP of engaging in racial politics to demean President Obama's reputation. (We've addressed his two supporting "evidence" here and here). When the chairman dismissed the accusation as "garbage," Matthews relied, "you're garbage." Other NBC News personalities on set appeared visibly uncomfortable with Matthews' line of questioning and acrimonious style. Priebus also discussed the the severe weather affecting the convention and currently bound for gulf states, as well as the running debt clock unveiled during this afternoon's brief session. As of this writing, the US federal government has accrued more than $270 million in debt since 2:00 pm ET today
Because name-calling always works?
Did Priebus gets Romney’s permission to talk mean about Mathews?
What’s his name, Pribar, or whatever? He can start showing some smarts by NOT taking interviews on MSNBC. Just cut them off. Matthews is so mentally unbalanced there cannot possibly be any advantage to it.
I have never had the desire to attend a party to which I was not invited. I’m sure that it’s great fun to be there, but I am not interested in watching it on TV.
I refuse to watch anything Chris Mathews is involved in, However I cannot wait to see the Utube one day when Mathews calls a real man garbage, and that man gets up and slaps the piss out of the mountain of feces named Chris Mathews.
I saw the video. Rince needs to watch Newt’s handling of Chris for pointers. He did poorly.
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus is not going to sit back and take it from the opposition. Here is his statement on how he will hit back:
“The nice thing about going first,” because the RNC is a week before the DNC, “is that whatever they’re going to do to us we can do 10 times over to them. I’m a big believer in if they punch us, we put on the brass knuckles and punch back.”
I just watched it and thought nearly anyone could have done better. He was dreadful. Damn shame because there was a lot of potential there.
Here’s an idea- someone force Chrissy to sit down and watch 2016 ;) THAT’s where all the “European Stuff” comes from. Uhmmmm... Europe.
Regardless- the European argument was ineffective for both sides as presented.
Could we possibly find a bigger dumbass to be RNC chair?
Matthews is a jerk, but Priebus is a dimwit. He was defenseless against Matthew’s sophomoric talking points.
GOP Leader Priebus: If They Want to Punch Us We're Going to Punch Back With Brass Knuckles:
His name is Priebus, Reince Priebus.
It's just me, but I think that question is off limits because it would prove Obama is an identification thief and therefore a felon and therefore all of his executive orders are in question as to validity.
Mathews and Beckel seem to be suffering from the same ailment.
Big Pharma will be rolling in the dough with the anti-depressants all the libs will be swallowing come November.
Priebus is good. Not as good as Newt, but then who is?
pribar is as bad as i expected him to be back when he was picked.
Well, I guess I can be relieved that you aren’t experiencing any disappointment in your expectations.
Some politicians are so cynical you know.
I like his work. His rapid response and spot ads are very good IMHO.
