Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus reiterated his call for Attorney General Eric Holders resignation on Wednesday, and promised Operation Fast and Furious will be an election issue in 2012.
Holder may want to point fingers and play the blame game, but as the Attorney General, he bears the responsibility, Priebus told The Daily Caller. Its past time for the attorney general to come clean and take responsibility and if he doesnt, he has a boss who should.
Obamas leadership deficit in holding the members of his administration accountable demonstrates yet again that the president is taking Washington in the wrong direction and only making things worse, said Preibus.
If Obama wont fire Holder, we will, Priebus added. Well fire the whole team in just 11 months.
Priebus considers Obamas continued support for Holder a sign of a consistent lack of competence in the administration. He said that although Holder is ultimately responsible for Fast and Furious, the president refuses to hold him accountable.
Whether its Attorney General Holder under fire for Fast and Furious or Energy Secretary Chu for wasting taxpayer dollars, President Obama has a competence problem within his inner circle, Priebus said. Despite the facts showing otherwise, Eric Holder has repeatedly denied fault in a reckless scandal that ended with the death of a border patrol agent and 1,400 guns lost in Mexico and the United States.
Priebus also promised to make Fast and Furious a prominent theme during the 2012 election.
The president is ultimately responsible.
No one is going to take a guy named Reince seriously.
I have no clue who he is and I can't pronounce his name.
Sarah Palin should be RNC Chairman. I can pronounce her name.
All I can say about a guy named Reince Priebus is that he must have gone to private school because with a name like that he would never have survived public school.
Why does everything have to be an ‘election theme’. Do something about it NOW, and use your success as an ‘election theme’.
All we get out of both parties is ‘election themes’...how about running on your success for a change instead of hollow promises about what you might do in the future if you pick up a few more seats in the house/senate/whitehouse...

“The president is ultimately responsible.”
Yes, but Big Media refuses to hold him accountable for anything except other people’s successes, and Racist Eric Holder is not running for president.
What happens if, just supposing, the Racist AG is gone in the next couple of months? Won’t that derail the RNC campaign momentum for having made it all about Racist Holder?
Why not make the campaign about the fraud failure-in-chief?
The Walsh/Reince campaign.
Say it “Ryenst”; Rye rhyming with try. And then Pree-bus. I agree, it’s a difficult name, but he’s really a nice guy who has done a spectacular job.
The GOP controls the house. If they had the balls to do it, they could draw up articles of impeachment against Holder today. But they don't.
They don't want Holder gone, they want the "issue". They want to run against Holder and if he were forced out, then they'd lose their precious "election theme".
This pathetic turd couldn’t pi$$ on his own shoes.
No they won’t.
The media will bitch and yell and the Republicans will cave like they always do.
He should also make the Solar Energy grant money giveaway scam an election issue too.
If I have to TRY to pronounce someone's name, then they need to go by a pronounceable nick name if they want to be remembered.
Apparently his real birth name is Reinhold. A good old AMERICAN name. But he goes by Reince.
Apparently his name in English means "Take a shower before getting on the bus."
If he want's my support, he'll go by Reinhold. Instead he chooses to go by some misspelled foreign name.
But haven’t the GOPers been given the word attacking Obama is a no-no? After all, America feels sorry for him.
I prefer to call him Prince Riebus.
“..Do something about it NOW, and use your success as an election theme.”
Exactly. But that won’t happen. Because they really do not want to face the “Obama Smear Team” - they are afraid to.
Forget about it.
How about Prince Ride-the-bus.
Reince is my former boss - leader of the team in Wisconsin that turned us from an awful blue state failure into a hot red state - a smart TEA Party man, not a wimp, not at all as you describe him. A real conservative and Christian, Pro-Life, Pro-Gun and capable at his job (unlike the previous RNC clown)- try looking him up and moving past your need to mock him for his name.
Easy on the guy Ann likes him and I hear he is a hit with the boys over at log cabin.
