A day after President Barack Obama unveiled his birth certificate to much fan fare, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said it’s time to talk about real issues.

preoibus, issues, birthers"We're borrowing four and half billion dollars a day and this president is more worried about birth certificates, Oprah Winfrey and fundraisers at the Waldorf Astoria," Priebus said on "CNN Newsroom."

"It's maddening and I just wish the president would engage in the real issues that are affecting America."

As the country continues to spiral in a financial crisis, Obama needs to get his priorities in order, he said.

"We've got a president who's not talking about the issue," Priebus said. "We've got him going to Jonas Brothers, golfing, doing everything except figuring out a way to save Medicare that's going to go bankrupt in nine years."

Priebus said he doesn’t control what potential GOP presidential candidates talk about, referring to Donald Trump raising the birth certificate issue.
"It's not my job to play police officer with the candidates," Priebus said. "It's up to the voters to play police officer and go into the voting booth."
