Back in Black

John Sununu.  Where do I even begin with this guy?  Let me just say that one of the most disqualifying things about the Romney campaign is their campaign co-chair being this fucking guy.  Anytime you want to throw a little race baiting into the mix, just call Sununu.  He’s already called the President lazy and a disgrace.  Then he called the President un-American.  But now he’s boiled down Colin Powell’s endorsement of President Obama as being about race.  Well of course it couldn’t be based on a sober measuring of each candidate’s strengths and weaknesses.  In Sununu’s World the black guy votes for the other black guy. Simple.

Here’s Colin Powell detaiing how terrible the President’s first term was. Terrible if he wasn’t black that is.

When he took over, the country was in very very difficult straits. We were in the one of the worst recessions we had seen in recent times, close to a depression. The fiscal system was collapsing. Wall Street was in chaos, we had 800,000 jobs lost in that first month of the Obama administration and unemployment peaked a few months later at 10 percent. So we were in real trouble. The auto industry was collapsing, the housing industry was start[ing] to collapse and we were in very difficult straits. And I saw over the next several years, stabilization come back in the financial community, housing is now starting to pick up after four years, it’s starting to pick up. Consumer confidence is rising.”

Don’t know about you but all I heard was BLACK POWER!  Here’s Colin Powell citing the President’s Blackness in regards to foreign policy.

the president get us out of one war, start to get us out of a second war and did not get us into any new wars. And finally I think that the actions he has taken with respect to protecting us from terrorism have been very very solid. And so, I think we ought to keep on the track that we are on.”

Here’s Colin citing Romney numerous foreign policy bonafides.  Too bad he’s not black, though:

The governor who was saying things at the debate on Monday night … was saying things that were quite different from what he said earlier. I’m not quite sure which Gov. Romney we would be getting with respect to foreign policy.” “One day he has a certain strong view about staying in Afghanistan but then on Monday night he agrees with the withdrawal, same thing in Iraq. On almost every issue that was discussed on Monday night, Governor Romney agreed with the President with some nuances. But this is quite a different set of foreign policy views than he had earlier in the campaign. And my concern … is that sometimes I don’t sense that he has thought through these issues as thoroughly as he should have.

Here’s Colin thinking that he really does agree with Romney on economic issues but unfortunately his blackness won’t let him vote for him yet again.  Damn you accursed blackness!

As I listen to what his proposals are especially with respect to dealing with respect to our most significant issue, the economy, it’s essentially let’s cut taxes and compensate for that with other things but that compensation does not cover all of the cuts intended or the new expenses associated with defense.”

According to Sununu’s version of the world, Colin Powell’s already gone black once.  Therefore, it should be of no surprise that he’s Back in Black.

How does this man still have a job in politics?!

The latter years of Sununu’s political career have been purely based on projection. He looks in the mirror, is horrified at what he sees, and then gives an interviews calling the President whatever that thing was.  He called the President a disgrace because that’s what he was.  Sununu resigned in disgrace after a scandal involving him using military planes to take vacation trips to ski lodges among other places.  He called the President un-American because he himself was born in Cuba.  So I can only assume he knows that the only reason he’s voting for Romney is because he’s white. Therefore…

Thank you, John.  Thank you for re-confirming that even the most sober and thoughtful political analysis, when filtered through the filthy, rusted and uneven mesh of your mind, can turn into something irrelevant, petty and ugly enough to be actively damaging to the political discourse.

I’m done with you.  You can go away now.
