Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committe, called President Obama, “our own little Captain Schettino” on Face the Nation this morning.
Bob Schieffer, clearly taken aback, responded, “What did you just say? What did you call President Obama?”
“I called him Captain Schettino. You know, the captain that fled the ship in Italy. That’s our own president, who’s fleeing the American people and not doing his job and running around the country and campaigning,” Priebus said.
Wait till November, Reince, when the American people flee the GOP. Meanwhile, keep it classy, and don’t show any respect for the 17 people confirmed dead so far on the Costa Concordia, just use them to take cheap shots at the president.
