George H.W. Bush Flunky Still Mad About Democrats And Their Weed

Not learning about being an American

Before George H.W. Bush became America’s lovable old “sensible Republican” grandpa, he was an angry, out-of-touch Republican president, who was flabbergasted to lose in ’92 to a fat pot-smoking southerner whom he publicly called a “bozo.” For most of his term, Bush’s chief of staff was unpleasant former New Hampshire Governor John Sununu, who was eventually fired (on George W. Bush’s suggestion) because he used government jets for personal travel to ski resorts, constantly. Probably he was very upset to not get to participate in the campaign against crazed reefer fiend Bill Clinton, so he’s super excited, in his current role as Romney’s “surrogate” (don’t worry, this means he talks up Romney on TV, not that he is carrying Mitt’s baby) to just totally slam on Barack Obama for being high all the time!

There is lots to love about this video, but what we like best is the implication that Barack Obama doesn’t understand the “American system” because he (a) spent his youth in Hawaii, which is part of America, (b) spent his youth getting high, like roughly 40 percent of all Americans, and (c) lived in Indonesia between the ages of six and ten (the perfect time to learn about capitalism) at a time when Indonesia was ruled by an anti-Communist U.S. backed dictator. We guess that’s more than one thing, but we love it all.

Later, John Sununu went on some other TV show and talked about how Barack Obama needs to learn how to be an American, because he has no private sector experience. We were about to make fun of a guy who took lots of private jet trips to ski resorts on the government’s dime for saying this, but high-level private sector execs totally assume that use of a private jet ought to be a part of one’s compensation, so never mind.

Anyway, John Sununu is an actual Arab (the Christian kind, but still) who was born in Cuba (pre-Castro, but still), so we vote that we get this lady to follow Romney around asking why he implanted his baby in an Arab Communist’s belly, via forbidden science. [TPM]

    Are you sure Sununu's not carrying Mitt Romney's baby? Have you checked on top of his car?

    • CthuNHu

      This is the selfsame bloated philatelist toad-demon who called current NH governor John Lynch (D!) "the worst governor ever."

      Yeah, that's the same Gov. Lynch who's kept about a 70% approval rating through his record four consecutive terms, beating an incumbent Republican gazillionaire governor in a squeaker for his first, and winning the rest by margins of 47%, 42% and, against a strong serious establishment-picked candidate (with Mr. Sununu being the NHGOP chair at the time) in a monster GOP year, 7.6%.

      John H. Sununu is as honest as he is skinny and pretty, is what I am saying here.

    The bogeyman argument only works for people you don't know, for crissakes. Obama's been our Uncle for four years now. If he was going to touch us inappropriately, he would have done it by now.

    • anniegetyerfun

      According to the wingnuts, the fact that Obama hasn't PERSONALLY come to your home and taken away your guns and white women is because he is saving that for his second term.

      • ph7

    The whole damn Romney campaign is like an elaborate dirty trick run by Democrats. I can hear Obama's advisors plotting in the dark of night, "…and just when the 'McCain said Mitt's worse than Palin' thing is breaking, we hand a mic to fucking Sununu and let him go nuts."

      You ain't kidding. I thought Obama vs. McCain was hilarious. This is like, High Fucking Tragedy. Mitt can't pull one foot off a gum-wrapper without getting the other into a pile of dog crap.

    Yawn…

    • Left_Leftie

      And whose comments is he talking about? News commentators comments? So he's saying we need to have full on news stories commenting on commentators comments?

      Circular Firing Squad indeed.

      • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

        Girl, you trying to apply LOGIC to their comments again? HARMONY times I gotta tell you, logic and RWNJs cannot coexist in the same spacetime? Harmony?

        Srsly, if you actually try to parse what they're saying, you'll go nuts. Think of it as watching a mynah bird talking. They might actually have a fucking clue, and they might not. The miracle is, they can talk at all.

  • SorosBot

    And idiot, Obama worked for a major law firm in Chicago, then was a professor at the University of Chicago law school. Those are both private sector jobs. So besides being immaterial, what he's saying is a lie.

      What is "Arab-coddlin'"? What's wrong with Arabs?

      • http://facethesuncastnoshadow.wordpress.com/ Mumbletypeg

        Nothing from my point of view.
        My comment is just window dressing for the fact previously unknown to me that Louis Eugene Wolcott was, early on and toward the end of his career, something of a violin virtuoso. I could qualify the "Arab" translation of Farrakhan ('charmer') to reinforce it's the culture, not persons outright, being coddled but I don't honestly have enough working knowledge of the relations between efforts toward Palestinian sovereignty, radicalizing American Moslems through NOI, Farrakhan's earlier-reaped criticism for 'pal'ing around with terrists" regarding his status w/ Gaddafi, and what have you, to reposition my comment's weaknesses. Window dressing undone. Ya caught me with my drawers down.

    If you knew what Sununu
    Knows about quantum physics and Greek
    And oil explorations and most favored nations
    And the secret handshake of Deke,
    Maybe you, too, like Sununu,
    Would adopt a principal rule,
    That you are the brightest, your light the lightest,
    And everyone else is a fool.

    Is it just me or is today's "Obama isn't American enough" crap just a dog whistle to the birthers? If so it's absolute proof Mittens is well and truly, capital "F" screwed.

    • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

      Especially since it got such a bad reaction, Mitt had to send TIM PAWLEZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ out to walk back what Sununu said. Oh, and Tim did a shitty job, reminding everyone why he lost in the early rounds.

Assuming you're a slick talking muslin plant who can't talk without a teleprompter who belongs to a Christian church with a minister who says bad things about America…

      • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

        Here's what I want someone to explain to me: If President Obama was a secret Kenyan Muslim who only pretended to be a Christian so he could become President — why the FUCK would he pick a church like the one he picked? Wouldn't he want to pick some church that was REAL MAINSTREAM CHRISTIAN? Evangelical, even?

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

            Yes and no. It won't make any difference to those of us who follow politics, on left or right, because we ALL know this has been coming since Obama first threw his hat into the ring. Yes, because no matter how many nutbags and teabaggers this country produces, the vast majority of Americans are pretty decent folk, who would like to believe that such things don't happen. They like to close their eyes to the dark underbelly, to the long and tragic history of racism and misogyny and bungled foreign policy, they work hard and buy the kids whatever they want, and pay no attention to troublemakers till they get in trouble.

            THOSE people have been shocked and horrified by the teabaggers and the strong streak of racism among their wingnut fellow-citizens. And they will PLOTZ when this happens live on the national media. Fucking PLOTZ.

    Over the past few years I've been continually depressed by the constant stream of "Obama's not really American" coming from the Right. What I finally realized was that, by now, they've shot their wad. The base just can't stay constantly terrified day in and day out – it's wearing – so each successive attack has less power than the last. It's to the point now that they just look ridiculous. They've effectively immunized Obama from further attacks of this nature, just in time for the election.

    • anniegetyerfun

      Well, I don't know – have you ever been involved in porn? I read on the internet that Mittens had specifically invested his money in kiddie porn. It's likely why he won't release his tax returns.

        Mitt Romney's jaw-dropping number of fluffer deductions will definitely not sit well with hardworking American parents facing skyrocketing out-of-pocket babysitter expenses.

    The GOP is still taking marching orders from Limbaugh, I see. Last night, Lawrence O'Donnell covered Limbaugh advising that Romney should go after Obama's "drug use at Columbia" (which didn't happen, Obama did his weed and blow in high school). O'Donnell also helpfully pointed out that the mean age of Limbaugh listeners is 67.

    • Pithaughn

      Tonight O'donnell will be asking, if Mitts sold Bain and it was worth 4 billion, why is he worth only 250 million now?
      My guess? If folks think someone worth 250 million is a negative, they will shit bricks when they realize there is 3.75 billion floating around somewhere. Maybe that's why no tax returns are being released.

    Let's not forget that the wingfucks hate H.W. Other than the chickenhawk neocons he coddled, he was a failure best not mentioned. He raised taxes, allowed the bogeyman of communism to go quietly, talked of a peace dividend, ran a limited war, was rather moderate (by today's standards) on social issues, he actually saw action in the military and was a one-termer. Like Ike and Nixon, he does not fit into their demented worldview.

    And face it, John, wingnut land will never, ever, ever, ever forgive you for that. They still talk about it. On Free Republic, whenever your name is mentioned, somebody is bound to bring up Souter. Denounce Obama all you like, they will never stop hating you.
