Conservatives, Malkin skewer Priebus for pathetic pandering after throwing candidates to wolves

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus was quick to jump on the GOP anti-media steamroll immediately following CNBC’s biased-filled debate.

In a few tweets Priebus shocked political pundits and unleashed how he supposedly felt.

Priebus told reporters that he thought “maybe” CNBC would have brought “forward a pretty fair forum” for the candidates and called the line of questioning “extremely disappointing.”

To be clear, the Republican panel put on a refreshing show of strength, confidence and solidity as they fought back against loaded and un-vetted questions.

It’s hard to know if the candidates and the audience hadn’t fought back with such force if Priebus would have been singing the same tune. After all, he has a lot to do with putting the debates together.

POLL: Which of the GOP candidates won CNBC’s Republican Primary Debate?

According to Drudge, the candidates were “thrown to the wolves.” Drudge linked to a Time article from last summer that stated:

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus announced a 13-member committee of Republican officials who will set rules for the GOP’s debates during the 2016 cycle, including selecting venues, debate partners, and even moderators. The committee will be led by Priebus ally Steve Duprey of New Hampshire, who was close to both Mitt Romney and John McCain. The committee is dominated by Priebus loyalists.

“Our debates will be good for our candidates and for voters—not a field day for the media,” Priebus told members of the RNC on Friday in Chicago, shortly before the party approved its final rules for the 2016 presidential nomination fight.

It would serve Republicans well if the RNC chairman the could find his passionate support of the candidates before, during, and not just after the debates.

Plenty on social media agree, including conservative columnist Michelle Malkin:
