Maddow: Republicans Now Blaming MSNBC for 2012 Election Losses
RNC Chairperson Reince Priebus told right-wing talk radio host Hugh Hewitt on Thursday that party heads will be releasing their findings March 18 at the National Press Club. Priebus gave a preview, however, of what the report will say.
The party, said Priebus, needs to work on “controlling the debate process, getting involved in moderators and networks and all of these other issues so that we don’t have chaos. I mean, we just can’t have MSNBC hosting a debate at the Reagan Library only to have their network make the commentary afterwards for three hours about the debate of the Republican Party. I mean, it’s ridiculous.”
“We were the reason you guys lost?” Maddow asked incredulously. “We’re what needs to be fixed in the Republican Party, seriously? I find this to be excellent news.”
She then welcomed Axelrod to the show, who opined that former Gov. Jon Huntsman (R-UT) had it right when he said “it was a failure of strategy and vision, not tactics.”
It’s not like I hope the GOP will figure out it’s substance, not form, which has them falling behind. It’s great for me if they continue their spirited game of who can bury their head the deepest. You’d think, though, that when your side gets beat down this bad that a change in manager might be appropriate.
