Priebus Slams Huckabee: ‘Don’t Offer Up Lobs’ to Dems for Criticism

by Andrew Johnson

​Mike Huckabee isn’t getting flak from just the Left and the media for last week’s “libido” comments — Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus said Huckabee needs to be more careful with his choice of words and what he wants to portray.

“You have to accept the political world we live in in the sense that you cannot offer up words like ‘libido’ — wherever that came from,” Priebus told MSNBC on Monday. “You don’t offer up lobs, set-ups, passes, and serves that allows Democrats to spike the ball.”

Had he chosen a different way to get his point across, Huckabee’s message wouldn’t have been “overshadowed” by the ensuing coverage, Priebus added.
