We’ve already heard several of the off-the-wall things that Romney surrogate and former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu had to say about President Obama today, such as:
“I wish this president would learn how to be an American.”
Or, “He 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.”
It’s not surprising that this kind of crazy talk is beyond thrilling for Romney’s online PR firm, Buzzfeed — and especially for their Rovin’ Romeny reporter, McKay Coppins (who, coincidentally, happens to be Mormon).
Here’s how Coppins subtitles this load of crapola: “The Romney campaign lets the dogs out.” Yeah, because Mitt’s a badass like that.
Coppins gives Sununu / Romney high marks in summary: “The Romney campaign is coming off a week of of absorbing tough blows to the Republican’s business record and personal finances, and Republicans have been calling on their nominee to step up the intensity of his pushback. Today’s call could be an answer to that encouragement — as well as a bid to change to subject of the national conversation.”
Really. So we’ll pretend that legitimate questions about Romney’s tax returns and business record at Bain Capital (like actually seeing returns and when did he actually LEAVE Bain), are equivalent to shouting “Nyah, nyah!” and character attacks from 2008?
Besides wanting to give the wealthy more tax cuts, they really got nothing. Maybe it’s time to have Trump on a conference call to talk birth certificates?
