RNC Chairman Compares Obama To Italian Cruise Ship Captain Accused Of Manslaughter

Via: Think Progress

RNC Chairman Reince ‘rent a boy’ Priebus compared President Obama to Francesco Schettino, the Italian cruise ship captain who took off in a lifeboat after his ship ran aground at Isola del Giglio, Tuscany and is suspected of multiple counts of manslaughter.

“In a few months, this is all going to be ancient history,” Priebus said in response to a question about the brutal GOP primary, “and we are going to talk about our own little Captain Schettino, which is President Obama who is abandoning the ship here in the United States and is more interested in campaigning than doing his job as president.”.

‘RNC Chair Reince Prebus IGNORES FACTS claims Obama has been an Absolute Failure on Jobs’

“If we continue to talk about creating good jobs in this country, and continue to show that Barack Obama has actually been an absolute failure when it comes to jobs – except for, obviously promoting the, you know, securing his own job – I think we do very well in that community.

And when it comes to jobs, when it comes to spending, the deficit, the debt, and keeping more money in people’s pockets, the Republican Party is the right party.”

And here’s some more FACTS, Prebus choses to ignore:

1) The economy under Obama’s watch has created 2 million new jobs in just TWO YEARS – already more than the GOP created in EIGHT YEARS under President Bush.

2) The last time the GOP controlled the White House, the American economy was marked by the weakest job and income growth in six decades, losing ground on “every major measurement” of economic strength.

The Wall Street Journal (NOT exactly Mother Jones) reported that the Bush White House had “the worst track record for job reation since the government began keeping records.”

3) Though though nary a week passed in 2010 without Boehner asking the president about jobs, the House under his leadership has barely mentioned the word.

The House GOP has now gone 128 days without issuing a jobs plan, and the party’s only notable move on jobs came in February, when Boehner addressed the possibility of laying off thousands of federal workers by telling them, So be it.”
