Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press" that former President Bill Clinton was being hypocritical when the he criticized Dick Cheney for voicing his opinion about the Obama administration's response to Iraq. Earlier in the week at the Clinton Global Initiative, Clinton told David Gregory, "Mr. Cheney, for the last six years, has been blaming the current administration for not cleaning up the mess that he’s made."
"These guys are hypocrites," Priebus responded, saying that the Clintons never hold back from sharing their views. "I think people are quite tired of this show," Priebus said, adding that the American public was suffering from "Hillary fatigue." "This early run for the White House is going to come back and bite them," he said. Priebus opined that working class Americans are also tired of the claims that the Clintons are just like them. "People respect folks who work hard and earn their money," Priebus said.
