From our friends at The Political Carnival: Did Reince Priebus say that neither Mitt Romney nor Paul Ryan are fully qualified to be president?.

As they noted, Rachel Maddow tweeted this about her appearance on Meet the Press this Sunday:

Here's how Priebus finished up his interview with Gregory:

DAVID GREGORY: Final question. Is he ready on day one?

REINCE PRIEBUS: He's absolutely ready on day one. And the fact of the matter is that's the threshold test. And he needs that test.

DAVID GREGORY: No foreign policy experience. No private--

REINCE PRIEBUS: Well--

DAVID GREGORY: --sector experience?

REINCE PRIEBUS: I think 14 years in Congress, many trips overseas, many trips over in the Middle East. I think Mitt Romney's leadership, Mitt Romney's diversity, at the Olympics, as governor, as someone who understands international business, I think combined these guys are ready on day one and they're the comeback team and they're going to help save this country.

Sorry Reince but as Rachel tweeted, that's not how it works.
