TAMPA – Republican Party chairman Reince Prebus said the GOP needs to "prosecute the president,'' as if the president has committed a crime.
Priebus made the remarks, whcih Democrats are charaterizing as "hateful," during a television interview.
He said President Obama falied to deliver on his 2008 campaign promises and therfore should be "prosecuted."
Priebus also said in an interview "CBS This Morning'' that the President "seems to be in love with the sound of his own voice.''
Other Republicans declined to use the word "prosecute,'' but there has not been any condemnation of Priebus, who has a history of making offensive remarks about the President.
