On CNN last night, John Sununu, George H.W. Bush’s disgraced former chief of staff, interjected another racist insult into the presidential campaign yesterday by asserting that George W. Bush’s secretary of state, Colin Powell, put allegiance to his race ahead of his professional and political judgment when he endorsed Pres. Obama:
Sununu: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.
Earlier this month, Sununu described the president as lazy and unintelligent.
