Video: Obama loves 'the man in the mirror,' Priebus says

(CNN) - Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus argued Friday the president was more focused on "the man in the mirror" than holding true to his campaign pledges.

"My point is he's a person in love with the sound of his own voice. He loves giving speeches, but he doesn't love following through on his promises," Priebus said on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer."

  2. Obama 2012 - BEND Forward America, take another 4 long years of FAILURE

    "My point is he's a person in love with the sound of his own voice. He loves giving speeches, but he doesn't love following through on his promises,"
    ======================================================================================
    Yes, Obama is the consumate arrogant narcicist. And the really good news is that they have it ALL on audio and video tape and it will all come back to him over the next 6 months. Obama's Four Years of Failure as narratted by Obama the Failure. It's going to be biblical.

    republicans are the party for narcissists and those who lack empathy, and we all know how narcissists tend to project their own faults onto others. another vivid example of republicans' narcissistic projection!

    Preibus' intellect doesn't allow him to hear the sound of President Obama's voice, that's above his pay grade.

    That Republican superpac doesn't have to air the ad. CNN and a couple of other media outlets have done it for them for free. The story could have been told about the derogatory plans for such an ad and other tactics without playing the Wright tape ad nauseum again . You guys have been surrogates for Romney and his campaign. You fell right into their trap. Now to be fair you have to run an equal number of spots (about 20 – 30) about Mormonism. You could tell about the Book of Mormons, John Smith, magic underwear and lots of other really interesting stuff. Fair is fair.

  16. once upon a horse

    I find it really hard I find to belive that THIS is the best that the RNC could replace Mike Steele with. So far the promise of ending DADT, bringing troops home from Iraq, finding Osama bin Laden have been honored. Some others like lower unemployment would possibly have worked if the GOP would have worked with him on certain jobs bills. Priebus is a moron who if anything is in love with the sound of his own strange name.

    Someone whose name conjures images of rotten dairy products should be very careful about leveling personal attacks.

    Just another Republican with a man crush on the President. Republicans came through on their promise to destroy the economy and blame it on Obama and they can't stand the fact that Obama is making some progress inspite of the Republicans wish for the country fail.

    The only campaign promises that the president did not achieve are the ones held up by the GOP to make him a one term president. Prince Reebus sure makes Michael Steele look like a Rhodes Scholar.

    Prince Reebus likes to hear his own flatulence, and cannot see himself in a mirror unless someone gives him a boost.
