I'll tell you about specifics. First of all, Mitt Romney talks about, all the time, about reducing the GDP spending from 25 cents on the dollar down to 20, reducing small business taxes from 35 to 25, reducing income taxes across the board by 20 percent.~ Reince Priebus, Chairman of the Republican National Committee, on ABC News This Week
I mean, for crying out loud, we’ve got Paul Ryan on the ticketAs far as specifics go, we're the only ones talking about how to save Medicare. The president's the one that raided Medicare by $700 billion.
I mean, we've got specifics coming out of our eyeballs.
We need to keep pounding away on those specifics and keep talking about those specifics so that the American people know.
Talking About Romney's "Hell Week" beginning with the Secret 47% Video and ending with releasing one tax return that was still controversial, plus having a tantrum on Univision, Reince told George Stephanopoulos of ABC News:
I think that we had a good week last week, I think in retrospect, in that we were able to frame up the debate last week in the sense of, what future do we want,” Priebus said this morning on “This Week.”
“I think we can look back at last week as a campaign in a couple months and say, this was the defining week in both campaigns,” Priebus said earlier, “where I think both campaigns are crystallizing around a central theme, which is going to be, what kind of future do we want for our kids and grandkids? What type of America do we want for this country?”
. . . he conceded that last week was not the “best” of the campaign for Romney.
“I think Governor Romney’s been pretty clear, it probably wasn’t the best-said moment in the campaign and probably not the best week in the campaign,” Priebus said.
I don’t know what prism he’s looking through. I don’t think anybody else would define it as a good week. But it was an enlightening week. The week began with Governor Romney basically slandering 47 percent of America, saying that they were, you know, hooked on dependency, didn’t pay their taxes, and so on.
~ Obama Adviser David Axelrod on ABC's This Week
Not only did Priebus sound like he was hung over from a bad night on Ambien, but he also carried on Team Romney’s tradition of spouting blatant hypocrisy and provable lies.

Of course you have specifics. "Forty-seven percent of Americans are parasites, and they'll all vote for their free meal ticket." How much more specific can you get?

Did anyone catch Priebus comment lamenting the "good old days" growing up as the son of a UNION electrical worker? They've go something coming out of their eyeballs, but it's certainly not specifics. It's the hypocrisy, stupid.

One of the best things about an Obama victory will be never having to see or hear Rinse Pubes again.

Reince Priebus is so bad at his job, Romney should give him a $25,000 bonus.

On ABC, RNC Chairman Priebus said Mitt Romney has provided voters with policy “specifics coming out of our eyeballs.” Fact check: Not true.
