Accompanied by a nifty Fox chyron declaring President Obama's White House to be "Scarred by Scandal," morning host Gretchen Carlson asks the important question:
CARLSON: As the scandals continue to pile up in Washington, so do the questions. Most important of all, was the president directly involved in any of them?
Thankfully, Fox had the perfect guest to answer that question: Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus.
CARLSON: So, Reince. Do you believe the president was involved?
And Reince's response was, shall we say, Fair & Balanced:
PRIEBUS: One of two things are going on, Gretchen. You've talked about this for a week and a half. If the president actually knew something, he's not being truthful and no one around him is. If he didn't know anything, I think it suggests a level of aloofness or perhaps even incompetence that I think is pretty disturbing in its own right.
So Reince doesn't know why these "scandals" prove that Obama sucks, but he knows that they do prove that Obama sucks. And no matter what the facts show, Reince is convinced that the GOP has inherited a political blockbuster:
I've got a good feeling that Darrell Issa is going to have quite a summer.
And if you're wondering why the only constant thing with these guys is their conclusion that Obama sucks, no matter what the evidence is, then you're obviously one of those quaint throwbacks that believes in things like "reality." Clearly, you're not aware of the new GOP standard for judging Obama: facts and/or the lack thereof.
