John Sununu Suggests Colin Powell's Endorsement of Obama was Racism: VIDEO


Romney surrogate John Sununu applauds Colin Powell for what he says is a racist endorsement of Obama:

MORGAN: Final question, Colin Powell decided to opt for President Obama again, despite apparently still being a Republican. Is it time he left the party, do you think?

SUNUNU: I'm not sure how important that is. I do like the fact that Colin Powell's boss, George Herbert Walker Bush, has endorsed Mitt Romney all along. And frankly, when you take a look at Colin Powell, you have to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring President Obama?

MORGAN: What reason would that be?

SUNUNU: Well, I think when you have somebody of your own race that you are proud of being president of the United States, I applaud Colin for standing with him.

Writes DailyKos' Jed Lewison: "I guess the logical implication here is that Sununu is only endorsing Romney because he's white, right? If you ask me, I think the real story here is that Romneyland is scared to death of talking about the Richard Mourdock story—in other words, the rape thing wasn't working out for Romney, so they decided to give the race thing a try."

Charles M. Blow Tears Sununu to Shreds on 'The Last Word': VIDEO


Yesterday, the Romney campaign (taking advice from Rush Limbaugh) sent out John Sununu to begin smearing Obama with suggestions that he is "foreign" in order to try and divert the attention Romney is getting over his disputed tenure at Bain Capital.

SununuSaid Sununu on FOX News:

"[Obama] has no idea how the American system functions, and we shouldn’t be surprised about that, because he spent his early years in Hawaii smoking something, spent the next set of years in Indonesia, another set of years in Indonesia, and, frankly, when he came to the U.S. he worked as a community organizer, which is a socialized structure, and then got into politics in Chicago."

Later, Sununu doubled down on a conference call:

“The men and women all over America who have worked hard to build these businesses, their businesses, from the ground up is how our economy became the envy of the world. It is the American way. And I wish this president would learn how to be an American."

Think Progress notes how the meme was continued, with other surrogates, HERE.

Charles Blow appeared on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell and tore the whole thing apart, ripping Sununu as the GOP's "favorite drunk uncle" in a satisfying tirade.

Political Ticker reports that "a multipronged effort" to escape from the Bain swamp is coming from Romney's camp.
