John Sununu: Barack Obama Is Pretty Much Pol Pot, Because ‘Government’

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

And I said "Hey Doc, how about dinner first?!"Favored Romney surrogate (because Mr. Manager Mitt Romney makes the greatest and classiest personnel decisions) John Sununu opened his wobbly old turkey mouth and said some more stupid shit today, because it is “a day.” Sure, His Lord High Hairgel got in a wee spot of bother by explaining exactly how 47 percent of the American populace can never be expected to take responsibility for themselves, because they are foul peasants, but Barack Obama is the real divider and class warrior, because he had a website saying government is cool.

“My take is that you’re missing the big story, which is this is in response to a president, the first president in my lifetime, who’s decided to run a campaign on class warfare and it’s Obama who has opened up the class warfare issue,” Sununu said.

“Let’s put this in context. You have an Obama administration that flaunts a website, applauding cradled to grave dependency with Julia,” [...] “an Obama website that encourages people to understand that what he is for is an expansion of government so government can take care of them. Mitt Romney puts numbers on that and says we have a campaign in which those that support big government are on one side and those that support the private-sector approach are on the other side.”

We have heard of Luntzing a bitch up, but this might be Top 10 for redefining some shit in the middle of the game. “Class war” used to be the terrible thing liberals did by wondering if the tax code could stand to be a touch less regressive. But now, thanks to John Sununu, we know that “class war” is when you say anything good about government at all! If you are not currently on the Interwebz frothing about EPA drones spying on your cattle, or threatening to shoot a Census taker, you too are a class warrior, and should be sent to Gitmo forthwith.

Boredw/Gravitas September 18, 2012 at 3:27 pm

Hey Sununu, why don't you just jump right back on that government plane you used to go to a STAMP CONVENTION and then tell me how we shouldn't rely on gov't to pay for personal crap?

How's your insurance, fatso? The best the public's money can buy? Fuck you.

noodlesalad September 18, 2012 at 3:27 pm

There is not a "divide" between government and the private sector – because government provides services that the private sector never will, and vice versa. You don't get one or the other, you have to have both. Just like there is no sharp divide between John Sununu's face and torso – it all just kind of melts together.

MaxNeanderthal September 18, 2012 at 4:10 pm

From Wookiepedia:-

"Full-grown adult Hutts were very large creatures, boasting a total body-weight as much as a metric ton. Perhaps unsurprisingly, they were often semi-sedentary, spending their days lounging lazily and traveling on repulsorlift sleds or palanquins borne by teams of slaves. Most of their bulk rested in their bulging belly and thick, slug-like tail, adding to their impression of bloated corruption. In Hutt society, weight was equated with power and status, so thin Hutts were derided as weak and unworthy. "

Seems fairly cock-on accurate a description to me…

OK, flipping off the snark switch for a second. This is to all the Breitbart trolls reading Teh Wonkette today:

Knock it off with this "47% of Americans pay no taxes" horseshit. It's completely false. There are those who do not file federal income tax returns (because they're seniors, students, veterans, veterans' widows, stay-at-home parents, or under the poverty threshold) BUT they still pay sales taxes, payroll taxes, local taxes and state taxes, which amount to a significant chunk of their gross income.

In other words, they "pay no taxes" only in a billionaire's world view. So unless you're billionaires, stop drinking the Faux News Kool-Aid and crawl back into your troll holes with this Ayn Rand shit. Oh, and Hopey is going to drink up your milkshake in 49 days, also, too.

Callyson September 18, 2012 at 3:34 pm

I am SO sick of that long-ago-disproved talking point from the wingnuts. The only saving grace is watching their infighting over this crap:

“Since when has it been the job of Republicans and conservatives to make sure everyone has IRS obligations?” wrote Jim Antle at the Daily Caller. He accused Romney of “[i]gnoring the rising payroll tax burden of the last few decades while dismissing many of those who have borne it as deadbeats.”

Daughters are bad. Unless you bind their feet so they have to walk funny and perform circumcision on them so they can't, y'know, enjoy the filthy stuff. Then make sure they procreate good white babies, none of this mulatto nonsense and — of course — make sammiches.

It's all god's law. Read it for yourself.

JustPixelz September 18, 2012 at 3:42 pm

Most households that do not pay income taxes are able to do so because they use income exemptions, child tax credits, social security exceptions and other "loopholes" to get their taxable income to zero. In other words, they pay no more and no less than what the law requires. If Romney and the Repubicans want them to "take responsibility for themselves", they can start by repealing those tax provisions. Go ahead, try it.

Beowoof September 18, 2012 at 3:52 pm

This from people who fail to recognize that most pay no income tax because income over the last 30 years has been forced upward. They get all the income, bitch about having to pay tax on it and then turn it around and say no one on the bottom pays taxes. And make those in the middle who are still lucky enough to have a job blame those for whom the system crashed.

31415 September 18, 2012 at 5:17 pm

I agree with you but would like to add to your list: The income of soldiers fighting in war zones are excluded from taxation, I assume Romney thinks they are slackers too.

mavenmaven September 18, 2012 at 3:28 pm

I think that when John Sununu is your last most strident supporter, you might as well just throw in the towel.

We have that capability here. Though, I'd have to take one of my guys off task. Hairy Sununu. Sounds like a virus or something.

MissTaken September 18, 2012 at 3:28 pm

Mitt Romney puts numbers on that and says we have a campaign in which those that support big government are on one side and those that support the private-sector approach are on the other side.

Sounds like it's Romney that is campaigning on class warfare, not Obama.

SorosBot September 18, 2012 at 3:31 pm

No, see, it's only class warfare when the peons fight back.

No matter how nice I am, I'm always swearing on the inside. But since large parts of my day consist of helping people with inherently confusing technology, I try to be sympathetic — which is how I turned into the pinko commie scum that I am today.

Native_of_SL_UT September 18, 2012 at 3:29 pm

Sorry Sunununu, you're way behind here. I've heard on good authority that the Obama is actually doing a heck of lot more than just the ol' "class" warfare thing. Haven't you heard that the DHS has purchased enough hollow point bullets to kill every last man, woman and child in the US several times over? He's going to take over this country by being the only one left.

Oh please. I have neighbors who have enough hollow points to kill every man, woman and child in the US. And they're the reasonable ones.

SayItWithWookies September 18, 2012 at 3:47 pm

See, the 99% give 110%, and then the 1% take credit for the extra 11% and say they're the hardest working demographic in the country, so should be taxed at 0%. Hope that helps.

(Not really — the 1% always take credit for the whole damn thing, but that would make for a less confusing sentence, so to heck with facts.)

The Socialist Obama plan (in a nutshell): You're born, get a primary and secondary education paid for by the state, go to college with government secured federal loans, you get a job, pay Social Security taxes, retire and collect Social Security.

The Freedom plan: You're born on the factory floor of the shop where your pregnant mother worked well into the 9th month of her pregnancy, by age 6 you're gluing fake, tiny gemstones to costume jewelry for Aeropostale, J.C. Pennys and Claires, by age 12 you're hauling coal down a mountain, at age 18 your enter the military and fight moooslems overseas, at age 65 you're driving a delivery truck, and you die at age 87, still wearing your blue Wal-Mart greeter's uniform.

Never! In fact, many of them will probably blame Romney for not being right-wing enough. Some will claim Obama only won because of imaginary voter fraud. These asshats will always refuse to believe that their horrible ideas are unpopular.

sullivanst September 18, 2012 at 3:46 pm

Yes, because if there's a single policy for which Pol Pot is famous, it's for murdering everyone with an advanced education greatly increasing financial aid available for students wishing to attend college.

Some of my friends growing up had had to flee Cambodia during the 1980s, to avoid being forced to receive government-funded educations*. It was so tragic.

Favored Romney surrogate

Seems Mittens picked the wrong flack to 'more elegantly' re-state anything of his.

JustPixelz September 18, 2012 at 3:47 pm

Romney is part of the 1% and the 47%, right?

BigSkullF*ckingDog September 18, 2012 at 3:47 pm

As a great patriot once said, "give me Somalia or give me death!"

No really, somebody please kill me now.

bobbert September 18, 2012 at 11:42 pm

I'd prefer to kill John Sununu*, if you don't mind.

*with votes, of course.

fuflans September 18, 2012 at 3:48 pm

My take is that you’re missing the big story…

no, actually, we're watching the big story with incredulity and wonder.

BadKitty904 September 18, 2012 at 3:54 pm

Is it just me or would that head look good on a pike?

Beowoof September 18, 2012 at 3:56 pm

Of votes.

Yeah, yeah, OK… with votes. All better now?

Can this fucker be deported back to Cuba.

mr bojangles September 18, 2012 at 3:58 pm

47% of romney's money does not pay federal income tax…stand aside!!

YouBetcha September 18, 2012 at 3:59 pm

You think this is warfare, you putrid, jiggly fuck? You haven't seen anything yet. I suggest picking up a few books which detail the history of France from 1789 to 1794. You may think we liberals are a bunch of ninny elitist academics, but we will thrown down and take this shit.

Chichikovovich September 18, 2012 at 4:04 pm

Though the history from the early 1700s is indispensible too. That's when Louis XIV and his worthless progeny started racking up huge deficits to fund unnecessary foreign wars, while exempting the clergy and much of the wealthy of taxes to the point that the burden fell so heavily on the emerging middle class and the poor that the situation became unsustainable. There were a couple of financial crises mixed in there due to financial adventurism, which made everything much worse.

It's quite interesting. Not that it has any relevance to today, of course.

OneYieldRegular September 18, 2012 at 4:01 pm

Kids, don't let this happen to you.

chicken_thief September 18, 2012 at 4:02 pm

God damn I hate it when the Facebook servers are slow and I have to wait for Lou Sarah to weigh in on these heady issues.

Doktor Zoom September 18, 2012 at 4:05 pm

Funny, Jon Stewart already did the math on how much we could get if we tried to make the Poors pay up. A year ago

There truly is no more coveted and respected a government job than using robots to sniff cow burps.

qwerty42 September 18, 2012 at 4:08 pm

Well, this is interesting. John Sununu has arrived with irrelevant, absurd rumblings that are supposed to resolve the gigantic train wreck that is the Romney campaign. How's that supposed to work, exactly? He carries on about some web site and suddenly everyone forgets about the 47% and Libya and tax returns and Bain and everything? John, I think it's nap time.

neiltheblaze September 18, 2012 at 4:10 pm

If you made John Sununu wear a long, black habit, a black dress, and black orthopedic shoes, he'd look just like my fourth grade nun.

LibertyLover September 18, 2012 at 4:13 pm

Romney was asked whether questions dealing with distribution of wealth and power were a matter of jealousy or fairness.

You know, I think it’s about envy. I think it’s about class warfare. When you have a president encouraging the idea of dividing America based on 99 percent versus one percent, and those people who have been most successful will be in the one percent, you have opened up a wave of approach in this country which is entirely inconsistent with the concept of one nation under God. The American people, I believe in the final analysis, will reject it.

And asked if there is any legitimate question one can ask concerning the discrepancy of wealth in America, SilverSpoon had this to say…

I think it’s fine to talk about those things in quiet rooms and discussions about tax policy and the like.

chascates September 18, 2012 at 4:19 pm

To truly enjoy the dickishness of Sununu check out his exchange with Brooke Gladstone on NPR's OnTheMedia:

a_pink_poodle September 18, 2012 at 4:20 pm

That's why Pol Pot was scooping all the people with glasses so he can send them to the optometrist.

prommie September 18, 2012 at 4:25 pm

A dildo is a surrogate dick, right? Well then how appropriate that this fucking fat ugly waddling dildo is the surrogate for Romney the dick.

Cleopatriot September 18, 2012 at 4:28 pm

Has this guy ever had a non-governmental job?

ingloriousbytch September 18, 2012 at 4:40 pm

I liked it better when Otis used to lock himself up in the Mayberry jail. Now he just wanders from network to network talking shit.

Cheneysleftnut September 18, 2012 at 4:45 pm

What freakin' rock did this guy crawl out from under anyway? I was thinking of going down to the dealer and test driving a Sununu – but not anymore!

Toomush_Infer September 18, 2012 at 4:46 pm

Okay, here's my real question: is there anybody, on either side of the aisle, that can stand to look at or listen to this piece of Sununu? Anybody? If he is the chief apologist for the Romney campaign, it must be as an unwonted volunteer in the absence of any rational choice….

CthuNHu September 18, 2012 at 5:08 pm

"[I]t’s Obama who has opened up the class warfare issue," which is why Mitt Romney "says we have a campaign in which those that support big government are on one side and those that support the private-sector approach are on the other side."

Mendacious chutzpah! How does it work?

GregComlish September 18, 2012 at 5:09 pm

First I thought that maybe John Sununu was the rich fat fuck getting sucked off by that Russian whore at the Mitt Romney pool party, but I don't think he's rich enough.

kyeshinka September 18, 2012 at 6:23 pm

I've taken shits more valuable than Sununu.

Walkinwiddaking September 18, 2012 at 6:47 pm

“My take is that you’re missing the big story, which is this is in response to a president, the first president in my lifetime, who’s decided to run a campaign on class warfare and it’s Obama who has opened up the class warfare issue,”

At last someone has. Conservatives have been trying to hold this one back for the last few years (hello Joe Scarboorough). It's about time it's out in the open. Let's have an open debate about the future makeup of USA.

LibrarianX September 18, 2012 at 6:54 pm

John Sununu – needs to eat more ham.

Fox n Fiends September 18, 2012 at 7:01 pm

John Sununu has spent more taxpayer's money on himself than a thousand "welfare queens" earn in a lifetime.

Angry_Marmot September 18, 2012 at 7:36 pm

Let's stop sending John Sununu his pension checks, because, government.

Veritas78 September 18, 2012 at 8:41 pm

No one gave a shit what Fatty Sununu thought when he actually had a (gummint) job, and there's no reason to start now.

Gleem McShineys September 18, 2012 at 8:51 pm

Listen Honey Snoo Snoo, I think your big man said "elegantly stated," not "burped-up Luntz butter."

Back to the drawing board. Also, next time, leave the Truck Nutz at home. They are not even close to appropriate neckwear.

amyamnesia September 18, 2012 at 8:53 pm

Off topic, but I really appreciate our Editrix's copious yet sly use of Arrested Development references.

Beady-Eyed Pig Fucker says what?

duh_du September 18, 2012 at 11:40 pm

Sununu only gets you 6 points in scrabble.

bobbert September 18, 2012 at 11:52 pm

Hey SnuSnu! You've heard of Warren Buffet, right? Go talk to him about "class warfare".

Baba_NinjaCat12 September 19, 2012 at 12:14 am

Right Sununu. Maybe you will be enjoy working at a agricultural collective at the FEMA Camp.

decentcitizen September 19, 2012 at 12:36 am

Yeah, Obama invented class warfare. Go with that-that's the ticket. Why the independent voters are completely persuaded with your argument. You're a genius, that's what you are, Sununu.

Negropolis September 19, 2012 at 12:56 am

The Lake Winnipesaukee Monster.

But, more to the point, how is at all a controversial comment? This is boilerplate Republican talking points. Do I have to actually read the entire article posted? Because the excerpt ain't nothing special.

DahBoner September 19, 2012 at 8:54 am

Year Zero, Mr. Sununu. Warp factor Five….

miss_grundy September 19, 2012 at 10:01 am

Hearing this from Mr. Tax Haven in Switzerland and the Cayman Islands is laughable. How about turning the conversation around, and talk about the millionaires and billionaires, like Romney, who employ tax accountants and tax attorneys, to ensure they pay next-to-nothing in taxes, while the forty-seven percenters are paying withholding taxes, gas taxes, sales taxes, state taxes, municipal taxes, and taxes on their utility bills. But no, they don't pay TAXES.

DahBoner September 19, 2012 at 10:54 am

We pay taxes on our taxes!

BeefHardcake September 19, 2012 at 1:35 pm

If he were my character, I'd reroll.

I didn't say cranky, I said swear-y and that is always true. Before I even open my eyes.

I open my eyes to the Morning Edition theme song. Love. Then the top of the hour news. And…I get all swear-y.
