Reince Priebus Blames The Media For Their Disaster Of A Primary Process

The RNC's Reince Priebus explains to MSNBC's Chuck Todd what their plan it to control the damage done by the clown show that has been their primary debate process.

The RNC's Reince Priebus told MSNBC's Chuck Todd that he and his organization are ready to take control of the clown show that has been their primary process, and who can blame them for wanting to limit the damage that was done by allowing every fringe candidate they had to get up there during the countless debates and actually be allowed to open their mouths for all of the country to behold?

I do find it pretty humorous that Priebus has decided to lay most of the blame on the media -- for having too many debates and the type of questions that were asked, rather than the fact that the Republicans had a bunch of wingnuts and outright grifters who threw their hat into the ring.

Here's more with Priebus' remarks to a group of Republicans this week: Reince Priebus: The GOP Is Changing Its 'Complete Disaster' Of A Primary Process:

Planned changes to the Republican Party's presidential selection process are part of a rebuilding process that will strengthen the GOP brand and hopefully make its presidential nominee more competitive in 2016, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus told California Republicans on Friday, calling the GOP's current primary process "a complete disaster."

Priebus said shortening the primary process by moving up the national convention at which the nominee is typically selected to June and cutting the number of debates are "not an establishment takeover. This is using your brain. Everything's not a conspiracy."

"I think a traveling circus of debates is insanity in this party," Priebus told about 200 delegates. "We're proposing to have fewer than 10, and this time around, we're going to pick the moderators."

Priebus is proposing to hold just 10 debates for the would-be GOP nominees in 2016, compared with the 27 held ahead of the 2012 race in which former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney was eventually selected as the party's nominee.

I'm waiting to see how "fair and balanced" those moderators are. I'm assuming the League of Women Voters are out. Anyone in the mood to guess who they'll end up agreeing to let moderate?
