    I knew it was only a matter of time before one of Romney's stooges made this accusation regarding the endorsement of Obama by one of the most respected Republicans and General in modern times.

    I wonder when Mittens is going to speak out against this ignorance? :eusa_whistle:

    John Sununu, Top Romney Surrogate, Suggests Colin Powell Obama Endorsement Motivated By Race [UPDATE]

    Top Romney surrogate John Sununu suggested Thursday night that Colin Powell endorsed President Barack Obama in part because the two men are the same race.

    Sununu, who served as governor of New Hampshire from 1983 to 1989, made the comment during an appearance on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight." Morgan asked Sununu whether Powell's endorsement of Obama, after having also thrown his support behind the president in 2008, meant the former four-star general should end his membership in the Republican Party.

    The exchange that followed:

    Sununu: Well, I'm not sure how important that is. I do like the fact that Colin Powell's boss, George Herbert Walker Bush, has endorsed Mitt Romney all along. And frankly, when you take a look at Colin Powell, you have to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring President Obama.

    Morgan: What reason would that be?

    Sununu: Well, I think 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.

    What Sununu is revealing is HE supports Bishop Willard because of his race!

    Colin Powell voting for Obama shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.

    Something like 96% of all blacks vote Democrat.

    Plus, blacks overwhelmingly vote for other blacks in elections.

    Pointing this out isn't racist.....just reality.

    True story............ :cool:

    It's not reality or true, but it IS racist. It is racist precisely because it is false, as proven by the fact that Blacks do NOT vote for Black Republicans. If Blacks voted race rather than Party, Black Republicans would get 90+% of the Black vote. Blacks obviously vote Party over race because White Democrats also get the vast majority of the Black vote even when running against a Black Republican.

    Why would Romney, a devout Mormon, want the endorsement of someone clearly descended from the seed of Cain?

    In the immortal words of Brigham Young:

    Romney has to tread carefully here, if he wants to avoid pissing off his cultist base.

    And you know this because as a member of the CON$ervoFascist Brotherhood you can read minds. :cuckoo:

    Following your "logic," Blacks do not consider White Democrats to be Black either, yet they overwhelmingly vote for them!

    No Democrat, White or Black would vote for GOP hero Osama Bin Laden. The CON$ervoFascist Brotherhood however would vote unanimously for Osama.
