"I wish this president would learn how to be an American"
--former New Hampshire governor and Romney surrogate John Sununu, on a conference call early this morning
No, wait, he misspoke.
Asked later to explain his comment, Sununu said he was referring to Obama's economic philosophy, and apologized for not being clearer.
Sununu then appeared on Fox:
[Obama] spent his early years in Hawaii smoking something, spent the next set of years in Indonesia, another set of years in Indonesia, and, frankly, when he came to the U.S., he worked as a community organizer, which is a socialized structure, and then got into politics in Chicago.
"When he came to the U.S"--that's post-clarification.
Is this upsetting? Not in the least. In fact, it's a kind of deliverance. The Romney campaign is now shooting for 100 percent of the lunatic fringe vote, but not much else. Happy hunting, guys. You deserve each other.
