John Sununu Laughs at Andrea Mitchell Defending Obama's Use of Bogus Romney Outsourcing Claims
NewsBusters.org ^ | July 10, 2012 | Noel Sheppard

It really has been hysterical watching the Obama-loving media the past few weeks defend the President using bogus information reported by the Washington Post falsely accusing Mitt Romney of outsourcing jobs while at Bain Capital.

This has become so comical that former New Hampshire Governor John Sununu (R) couldn't hold back the laughs as Andrea Mitchell did exactly that Tuesday on the MSNBC program bearing her name (video follows with transcript and commentary):

John Sununu Laughs at Andrea Mitchell Defending Obama's Use of Bogus Romney Outsourcing Claims

ANDREA MITCHELL, HOST: Isn't it a winning issue for the White House fundamentally, granted that the Politifact folks and the Washington Post pointed out that the President's campaign ad on that issue had a lot, a lot of questions and a lot of questionable attack lines...

JOHN SUNUNU: No, they said it was wrong. A lot of questions is not right. It was wrong.

MITCHELL: Okay, if, but the point is that doesn’t, isn't Mitt Romney more vulnerable than the President on this issue because there still is, the whole question of private equity of outsourcing? You could argue about when he left Bain Capital, and, you know, whether he was still getting money from Bain Capital and what some of the companies in Bain were doing, companies that did end up working overseas and sending jobs overseas.

SUNUNU: [Laughs]

MITCHELL But isn't it a bigger problem for Republicans than for the White House?

SUNUNU: No. When you've sent $500 million to Fisker and it goes to Finland immediately. When you send the solar money and it goes to Mexico. When you send the turbine money and it goes to Denmark. And we can go on all day. There is $29 billion worth of purchases that came out of this administration, outsourced jobs to foreign countries. Mitt Romney outsourced zero. Obama outsourced 29…

MITCHELL: Zero?

SUNUNU: Zero. He wasn't there when those issues came up.

MITCHELL: Well, first of all…

SUNUNU: [Laughs]

MITCHELL: …the $29 billion are not all outsourced from the administration because...

SUNUNU: Sure they are.

MITCHELL: A lot of those jobs still remained here. There are jobs, when you do a grant, Governor, there are jobs here as well as overseas.

SUNUNU: [Laughs] You're struggling, Andrea. You're struggling. [Laughs]

MITCHELL: Well, first of all…

SUNUNU: [Still laughing]

MITCHELL: …these are competing claims and we will get back to you with all of the numbers.

SUNUNU: Sure.

I'd say that Mitchell ought to be ashamed, but any self-respect she had went out the window last month when she not only aired a selectively-edited video of Romney to make him look like an out of touch moron, she chose not to apologize when she got caught.

One has to hope reelecting one president is worth the diminishment in credibility Mitchell is suffering from her astonishingly unprofessional behavior.

Did not Andrea just get caught editing a Romney tape in order to make it appear he said something he did not? This lady is a loser.

ROFL! Read that over three times for meaning, and see what YOU come up with.

No Rhodes scholar,this Andrea! I don’t care if she’s married to Alan Greenspan (who, as the years fly by, is looking less and less like a Rhodes scholar himself...)

I had written off Sununu years ago. I may have to reconsider; he’s sounding pretty “right on” here!

YOU GO FAT BOY!

Obama complains he can’t raise enough money. He has these hacks on the MSM covering up his record, changing the subject, distracting and sometimes actually lying. How much money is it worth to have a lying cheating media on your side? How much does it cost us to pay a President to fly around on Air Force One in campaign mode 24/7 while getting paid?

Amazing! Yes, when you award a grant that shouldn't be awarded you still create jobs for grant administrators. I worked for a company that administered some of the "Recovery..Act" money. They were embarrassed to say so.

Who... Sununu? I’m not writing him off, I’m cheering him on!

But that doesn’t stop me from being surprised. Or “gobsmacked” as our friends across the pond put it.

Speaking of “across”, since you know him SOOO well, you KNOW he’s an “across the aisle” RINO, right?

Nevertheless, YOU GO FAT BOY!!!! Make me proud!

And by the way: a hearty THANK YOU for your many years of faithful service to our nation.

Without you, and the way forward you have helped to make secure, this discussion would be rather meaningless (if it could be held at all).

God Bless You, and FRegards

I watched this video. I’m sure he had no idea how it was going to go when he went in, but she was caught stammering, at a loss for words, and he swooped. It was masterful. And I don’t particularly like the man who suggested David Souter to the SCOTUS.

John is a brilliant guy & was a great governor of NH. He blew it on Souter with the help of that no-good RINO U.S. senator (RNH)Warren Rudman. Rudman is the lying scum that sold Souter to Sununu & Bush. And Rudman knew Souter’s private views. Sununu & Bush 41 did not have that info cause Souter’s record on the NH court was conservative. Sununu should have done more homework, but the real guy behind the nightmare that was Souter was mostly Warren Rudman.

Without question, the single-most devastating comeback to these ridiculous pinheads and their smears is to laugh at them. Just point at them and laugh like they're the biggest, most ridiculous imbeciles you ever saw.

Because, truth be told...

...they are.

Absolutely devastating. Game, set, match.

She just got ass handed to her. While she was claiming not “all” Obama grants lead to outsourcing “all” the workers, she admitted some were outsourced.
