RNC Chair Reince Preibus Compares President Obama To Italian Ship Captain Accused Of Manslaughter (VIDEO)

Reince Preibus is the current chairman of the RNC. He’s also on my list of the top 15 conservative politicians to watch in 2012. And today, Preibus demonstrated why he made my list in the first place.

After fielding a question about the exhausting GOP Primary this Sunday on Face The Nation, Preibus thought it would be appropriate to compare President Obama to Francesco Schettino, the Italian cruise ship captain who cowardly escaped his ship after running it aground, killing at least 17 people.

“In a few months, this is all going to be ancient history 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.”


Here’s the video:

I always knew that Reince Preibus was a small minded partisan and now he has gone the distance to prove just how correct I am about him. Preibus is accusing the President of abandoning America and implying that he is on the same level as a man who may be guilty of committing manslaughter due to dereliction of duty. It’s a ridiculous claim that only a person stooping to the worst political commentary would conjure. President Obama is on top of his job at all times. President Obama has given orders to kill terrorists, has given executive orders to his cabinet to help improve the economy and has proven that he is calm under pressure at every turn.

If Preibus is looking for a President who abandoned America, he should look at George W. Bush. Bush ran the economy into the ground which led to the issues wed face today. And don’t forget that Bush allowed Osama bin Laden to escape into Pakistan so he could illegally invade Iraq. Thousands of American soldiers were killed because of Bush’s follies. President Obama refocused the war on terror and ordered the Navy Seals to go into Pakistan to kill bin Laden. That’s not abandoning America, that’s doing the job of protecting America.
