You may have seen a headline last week that stemmed from a Fox News Sarah Palin interview:
Sarah Palin: Mitt Romney needs to set ‘hair on fire’
The one-time Vice Presidential candidate was essentially begging the current presumptive nominee to go where she wasn’t allowed to go in order to take down President Obama.
Today, Former New Hampshire Governor John Sununu went “rogue” (although, we’re sure this is a prescribed campaign tactic) and personally attacked the President for things like smoking marijuana in college. Then he came up with this doozy:
Romney surrogate John Sununu is taking heat for challenging President Obama’s American identity.
“I wish this president would learn to be an American,” said Sununu, a former New Hampshire governor and White House chief of staff for President George H.W. Bush.
Sununu’s comment, made during a conference call with reporters, came after he said on Fox News today that Obama “spent his early years in Hawaii smoking something” and “another set of years in Indonesia.” Sununu’s remarks came as he tried to make the point that Obama “doesn’t understand how to create jobs.”
Conservative columnist David Frum has an interesting theory as to what happened here. Either way, kind of pathetic way to try and turn the page from Romney’s Bain/taxes don’t you think?
