Todd Akin is “disappointed” in GOP Chairman, Reince Priebus because he has vowed to withhold funds from Akin’s losing campaign. In a demonstration of projection usually seen in left-wing pols, he accused Priebus of putting power and politics ahead of what’s good for the country.
Via Todd Akin for Senate: Akin Campaign Blasts Reince Priebus:
St. Louis, MO: Today the Todd Akin for Senate campaign released a statement in response to Reince Priebus, Chairman of the Republican National Committee, who said on video that Todd could be tied with Claire McCaskill and they still wouldn’t support Akin’s campaign. Priebus said, “he could be tied. We’re not going to send him a penny.” VIDEO: http://youtu.be/jP1_J6XmtHI (embedded below)
Perry Akin, campaign manager, released the following statement:
“Reince Priebus’ comments are extremely disappointing. He claims the mantle of freedom, liberty and the good of America, but this betrays his apparent personal vendetta against Todd Akin. He is putting party power and political games ahead of the good of the country.”
Here’s the Priebus interview Akin is responding to:
“What I do love about some people in politics is they are in it for the cause,” Priebus said, “they really do believe that this is about liberty and freedom and the future of the country. If that’s really where you’re at, and you have the opportunity to put someone else in place that has a better chance of winning than you do, well then, you’re not always the person who has to be the guy.”
“I just think the people who want to do something special are always better than the people who want to be someone special.”
Akin still hasn’t figured out that he’s the guy who’s putting political power above what is best for the country.
Earth to Akin…………DROP OUT, already!
