Romney campaign co-chair Sununu repeats ‘lazy’ charge against President Obama

Updated
 

The co-chairman of Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign, John Sununu, has once again called the president “lazy” and “incompetent.”

Sununu, also the former chief of staff for former President George W. Bush and a former governor of New Hampshire, used these words to sum up his review of President Obama’s performance at the first presidential debate Wednesday night.

“What people saw last night I think was a president that revealed his incompetence, how lazy and detached he is,” Sununu said on Andrea Mitchell Reports Thursday. “And how he has absolutely no idea how serious the economic problems of the country are and how he has failed to even begin to address them.”

Host Andrea Mitchell offered Sununu the chance to walk back the remark, but he adamantly declined.

“He didn’t want to prepare for this debate,” Sununu said. “He’s lazy and disengaged.”

Given this is a charge Sununu leveled at the president just last week during an appearance on Fox News and these were the first lines he spoke on Andrea Mitchell Reports, it seems clear this is a well-rehearsed, thought-out line by the ex-governor.
