Reince Priebus: You know who is a model Republican? Huckabee

Vomit inducing statement of the day for me anyway

RNC Chair Reince Priebus told reporters today that former governor Mike Huckabee would be an example of a “model” Republican in his eyes.

The Corner reported:

Earlier today, Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus pushed back at critics who have questioned his continued support for Senator Rob Portman, the Ohio Republican who came out in support of gay marriage last week.

“When someone asks me ‘Are you going to cut off funding for Rob Portman?’ I think it’s just ridiculous,” Priebus told a group of reporters Friday during a briefing at National Review’s Washington, D.C., office. “He’s a good Republican. I think it’s also normal and decent to still support a person that you agree with on 99 percent of the issues.”

But Priebus says his support of Portman doesn’t signal a policy shift within the party’s platform. “Yes, we’re still a pro-life party. Yes, we still defend our platform on marriage,” he said. He emphasized, however, that Republicans must also sound “reasonable” to voters who disagree.

Priebus cited former governor Mike Huckabee of Arkansas as an example of someone who could be “a model for a lot of people in our party” in terms of discussing issues like marriage and abortion. “I always tell people: Listen to Governor Mike Huckabee,” he said. “I don’t know anyone that talks about them any better.”

Good Grief! The only way we could have done worse in the last two elections would have been if Huck-a-phony was the nominee

  1. I read the GOP analysis of their loss this time (again)- ok, I skimmed through it.
    I saw a lot of immigration, messaging, reaching out cr@p, but I don’t think i saw one mention of Conservative.

    Guess I’ll be looking for another party to vote for while the GOP put another loser out there….

  2. Reblogged this on Cmblake6's Weblog and commented:
    My ass. Huckabee would be better than Ovomit, but “model Republican”? The thing wrong with this is simple, IMHO. If they would just stand by the original principles, instead of being wishy-washy-what-difference-does-it-make, perhaps they would see that what America wants isn’t just more of the same.
