Priebus: ‘Obama has a problem with the American Dream’

August 28, 2012

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said in his speech to the GOP convention Tuesday that President Obama’s worldview is at odds with his country.

"That makes me think that Barack Obama has a problem with the American Dream,” Priebus said.

Priebus, a Wisconsinite, also used his speech to play up Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) status as Mitt Romney’s running mate and take a shot at the man Ryan would replace, Joe Biden.

“He’s my buddy, my congressman, and I can’t wait to call him our next vice president,” Priebus said. “And hey, wouldn’t it be nice to have a second in command who spends his days doing more than prying his foot out of his mouth?
