Priebus on the "Buffett Rule" and 2012 politics

Reince Priebus RNC Chairman on Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, the Buffett rule, and the 2012 race.

On the Buffett Rule, Priebus said "This is Obama's strategy. Look over here at this shiny object here. Don't look at the big picture, an economy on the brink that I didn't do a thing about and made things worse. That's what this is about."

On the presumptive GOP nominee, Preibus said "Mitt Romney had a great month and he's clearly on a pathway to be the presumptive nominee and we're going to have a unified party when this is all said and done. ... I think people around this country know that this election is about the future of America, and we want to be able to tell people that you can work hard, you can play by the rules and you can still live the American dream, but we need to have a Republican in the White House."
