Reince Priebus: The Perfect Functionary and Political Tightroper

Reince Priebus

Priebus, Heilmann, Ford join Mika on the Morning Joe.

If you want to see the perfect example of a sniveling functionary and RNC operative, meet the current RNC Chair. 


Would you like to see an underlying reason Preibus comes across as obtuse and only 'half-alive'.  He has marching orders and probably he has the most precarious position in US politics.
Here are his marching orders.
Dear Speaker Boehner and Leader Cantor:
For the first time, the activities of the Obama administration are receiving a sustained public vetting.  Americans’ outrage over Benghazi is amplified by the Internal Revenue Service’s intimidation of conservative grassroots organizations and a cascade of negative headlines.  There is the real sense the Obama administration has been less than forthright with the American people, the press and lawmakers.
Recent events have rightly focused the nation’s attention squarely on the actions of the Obama administration. It is incumbent upon the House of Representatives to conduct oversight hearings on those actions, but it would be imprudent to do anything that shifts the focus from the Obama administration to the ideological differences within the House Republican Conference.
To that end, we urge you to avoid bringing any legislation to the House Floor that could expose or highlight major schisms within the conference. Legislation such as the Internet sales tax or the FARRM Act which contains nearly $800 billion in food stamp spending, would give the press a reason to shift their attention away from the failures of the Obama administration to write another “circular firing squad” article.
Make no mistake, principled conservatives will still oppose bad policy if it comes to the floor.  Rather than scheduling such legislation for consideration, we urge you to keep the attention focused squarely on the Obama administration. As the public’s trust in their government continues to erode, it is incumbent upon those of us who support a smaller, less intrusive government to lead.
Sincerely,
Michael A. Needham Chief Executive Officer Heritage Action for America
(Daily Kos bold)

If you feel the addresses on the letter is the extent to which the ultra conservative Heritage foundation spreads its orders, you are naive.
