    In an interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan this evening, Romney Campaign Co-Chair and former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu (R-NH) offered a surprising theory on why General Colin Powell endorsed President Obama for reelection today — because both men are black:

    SUNUNU: You have to wonder whether that’s an endorsement based on issues or that he’s got a slightly different reason for President Obama.

    MORGAN: What reason would that be?

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

    For the record, John Sununu is an intelligent and accomplished white man. He has also decided to endorse Mitt Romney, who is white, over Barack Obama, who is black. No one believes that Sununu made this decision for any reason other than the fact that he prefers Romney’s policies to Obama’s, and it would be absolutely inappropriate to suggest that Sununu joined the Romney campaign because he wanted a president of his same race.

    Colin Powell is also an intelligent and accomplished man. Suggesting he is unable to see beyond the president’s race is no less insulting.

    Apparent projected racism.

    I was listening to Sununu on an interview last week, and just the way he talks about things made me realize that he is one bad character.

    For the record, the only thing jon sununu has accomplished is vacating any previous claims to intelligent as a descriptor , by cultivating his present unhinged-media-whore brand. the name of the game in political media is say ANYTHING to stir controversy.

    in a just world, sununu would have revealed his cretenous core sooner , saving the electorate the mistake of putting him in any office, at any time. the more we restrict career options for these creatures, the sooner they'll cannibalise each other and we'll be rid of them. Just ask Glenn Beck.
