MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - The Wisconsin native who heads the Republican National Committee has some choice words for President Obama’s visit to Milwaukee Wendesday.
Reince Priebus calls it, “another taxpayer-funded campaign stop by the president to rehash more of the same broken promises.”
U.S. Senate Republican Ron Johnson – who joined Preibus on a conference call – said Obama’s trying to take credit for Master Lock’s decision to bring back 100 jobs from China. Johnson said it was like “the rooster taking credit for the sunrise.”
Priebus also said Governor Scott Walker would win his recall election this summer, but he said Democrats are welcome to try and remove him.
Priebus said the Democrats would, “flush $30 million down the toilet,” giving them less money to help their party’s president carry Wisconsin this fall. Priebus also said it would “further embolden” the GOP’s reform efforts.
Milwaukee’s mayor, Democrat Tom Barrett, said he was surprised by the GOP’s criticism over Obama’s visit – even though Democrats did pretty much the same thing when the shoe was on the other foot during the Republican Bush years.
