Priebus: Give Obama some credit

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus says Obama deserves credit for killing Osama Bin Laden, but doesn't when it comes to his record on job creation.

"President Obama's private business experience hasn't seen the inside of a lemonade stand. And so I think it's time to put someone in the White House who understands how job creation works in this country. And that's Governor Romney. ... Mitt Romney has created - has helped create more net jobs in the state of Massachusetts as governor than Barack Obama has helped net create in the entire country. ... If David Axelrod and this president want to make this campaign about jobs, which is what we want it to be about desperately... there's no chance that Barack Obama wins the presidency in November"
