RNC Chief Reince Priebus Continues to Compare Barack Obama to Disgraced Costa Concordia Cruise Ship Capt. Schettino


If the lack of leadership fits, wear it …

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus does not back down from his comments comparing President Barack Obama to the disgraced Costa Concordia cruise ship Captain Schettino. The analogy is that Obama left his job that he was elected to fix the economy to do nothing but campaign for 2012. Schettino was more concerned with saving himself than he was other passengers and going down with ship. Barack Obama is more concerned with reelection than he is creating jobs.

“When I made those comments, I clearly used the analogy in both sentences that this president was akin to leaving his own job and campaigning non-stop all the time, worried about his job, number one, instead the jobs of the millions of Americans that are out there,” Priebus said. “Now we’ve talked about the fact that this president is in love with campaigning, he’s not in love with his job as president and getting the debt under control as promised and getting Americans back to work.”

Pressed about whether the analogy was appropriate considering the maritime crash killed at least 16 people — with more than a dozen still missing — Priebus stood by the comments.

“The analogy was made and it was an analogy of leadership, that in a time of crisis, this president is leaving the White House and campaigning non-stop all the time,” Priebus said. “I think it’s pretty clear, but if people out there on the Democratic side want to make hay of it they’re going to be able to do it.

Hot Air reminds us that before DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz whines about the RNC Chair’s comments, she might have some apologizing to do first as when it comes to incendiary comments regarding the Tea Party. Debbie is all in a huff about a comparison to a ship captain who has been charges with manslaughter, I guess she forgot when the Democrats accused W of murder. Hmm?

In the end, its all nonsense … Obama needs to be fired for dereliction of duty. Any President who nixes a job creator like the Keystone XL pipeline for political reasons in a time of such economic despair, needs to be ushed out the door sooner, rather than later.

      the truth always hurts Shultz to the bone. it’s hared to imagine that she left her street corner to comment on this.

      The Keystone XL pipeline will take foreign (Canadian) oil from Canada to A Gulf refinery half owned by the Saudis. The oil will go directly on the world market for the speculators to bet on. Besides the jobs to build it (which go away when finshed) and the few jobs to maintain it’s a oil industry/saudis giveaway. The pipeline route is directly over the water that 1.5 million AMERICANS use to grow wheat and drink. Anyone with a little dynamite or C4 could ruin the nations wheat harvest for generations

      Wiki the Trans Alaska pipeline. How many have jobs today on that pipeline? Alyeska Pipeline Service Company operates and maintains the 800-mile Trans Alaska Pipeline System (TAPS). Alyeska Pipeline acts as agent for the five companies who own the Trans-Alaska pipeline. Almost 811 employees work in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Valdez and field locations along the pipeline. Our school district or our local hospital has more employees. It ain’t about jobs, it’s about profits!
      SM: JOBS, JOBS, JOBS … remember when Obama said that was his #1 priority?

      BTW, it is not like this is the only pipeline that crises-crosses America.
