Rope-a-Dope: RNC Chair Calls Biden ‘Gifted Orator’

If being a walking, breathing gaffe machine translates to gifted oratory, we can’t wait to see it on display. We were told how awesome Obama was all these years and now the world knows what a myth that was.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus expressed optimism that Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) would do well in Thursday night’s vice presidential debate, but sought to downplay expectations, describing Vice President Joe Biden as a “gifted orator.”

“Most people understand that Joe Biden has been debating for a long time,” said Priebus on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday.

Priebus said that while Biden had been the source of numerous gaffes on the campaign trail, Republicans should be cautious. “Joe Biden has of late put his foot in his mouth in very public ways, I mean he said that the middle class was crushed under the policies of Obama and Biden and he’s said some things that were problematic,” said Priebus.

“Paul is going to do a great job, but also I think it’s very important that people understand that, people realize that Joe Biden is a gifted orator, is very good at rhetoric, is very relatable,” he added.
