Skip to comments.Top Romney aide Sununu suggests Powell endorsed Obama because he’s black

John Sununu, a top adviser to Mitt Romneys presidential campaign, suggested Thursday that Colin Powell endorsed President Obama because both men are African-American.
Asked Thursday on CNN about Powells endorsement, Sununu said the endorsement might be for reasons other than policy.
Frankly, when you take a look at Colin Powell, you have to wonder whether thats an endorsement based on issues or whether hes got a slightly different reason for preferring President Obama, Sununu said. Asked what those might be, Sununu pointed to race.
Well, I think when you have somebody of your own race that youre proud of being president of the United States, I applaud Colin for standing with him, Sununu said.

Yeah, let’s applaud Powell’s racism.
Dang right it is. Unless Powell has Ben faking all these years. Either is a possibility.
Just like Jay Z and Sameul L. Jackson-they said they voted for Obama becaluse he is black and I am surre they are not alone
the code word is “transformative”
I have enjoyed Sununu’s candor this election cycle. He’s been unafraid to challenge the MSM.
Powell is no different than Rev. Wright or Al Sharpton.
COLIN POWELL IS JUST ANOTHER ANGRY BLACK MAN. Just like the prez. His government career is over and expressing his opinion won’t cost him anything. He’s just getting even.
Sununu will of course be severely disparaged for simply telling the truth. Political correctness is a lie that is destroying America. Obama is a vapid failure. the truth be told, he is a vapid African-American failure.
But Colin Powell only voted for Obama because of the issues...that’s why he wept when Obama was elected.
WOW Breaking news..Powell endorsed Obama because he’s black yeah there’s a shocking development LOL..of course that’s why he endorsed him, its the same reason why he endorsed him in 2008..the other BS he spews is just that, BS..its ALL because of race
Duh. Everyone knows Powell is voting for Obama’s Black half.
96% of blacks voted for Obama in 2008....
That is unheard of unanimity in the history of US elections by any ethnic group/voting block/religion/national origin etc.
Colin does not wish to be in the 4% minority who probably made an error in marking the ballot.
More because Obama is a pinko.
Well...I’m not famed at all and I suggested that, in those words, as soon as Powell endorsed.
Powell isn’t African. Isn’y he from Barbados or Burmuda?
“Duh. Everyone knows Powell is voting for Obamas Black half.”
Exactly right. I saw Gov. Sununu on Hannity tonight and he said he thought Colon Bowel was “doubling down” on his vote in 2008.
Colon is the perfect example of political correctness run amok. Every position he held starting with being made a Colonel over much better candidates has been because of affirmative action, according to much higher ranked Army officers. In politics you can thank the Bushes for pushing along his rise to power.
Colin Bowell is not stupid like the average liberal, not stupid but avaricious.. He’s a republican to tweek white racial guilt for gain.. At least Zero is not a cross dresser like Bowell is..
The military is a conservative group so he acted conservative for gain, but he is out of the closet now.. Bowell is a nasty piece of work..
"In other news, Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead..."
They were making a big f'n deal (a little Joey Biden lingo) about this all day today. Why? I would have been shocked if the Colin DIDN'T endorse the Kenyan.
General Belafonte - “Heyo, sayo .... Ya wanna banana oat ride...”
None of us liked McCain politically on this site, but we all respected his service and his experience in government (I think saying that is a safe bet).
So when the choice was a “community organizer” versus McCain, Powell went with the “community organizer”.
Does ANYONE have ANY doubt as to why he chose Obama?
Powell said he endorsed obama in 2008 BECAUSE he’s black. They also have other things in common. They’re both black and they both benefited from affirmative action.
“Hes a republican to tweek white racial guilt for gain.”
Yea, exactly. I remember how he used to keep his political speeches under lock and key when he was toying with running. The only candidate that I have ever heard of doing that stunt. He knows if he was a Democrat, he would be simply written off as another angry black. But claiming to be Republican, while not lifting a finger to help Republicans, only means he’s exploiting the term “Republican” to help the Democrats achieve power.
and Sununu would be right.
Sununu is probably wrong. If the choice was between Col Allen West and some white liberal, he’d go for the white liberal.
Didn’t like him then, don’t like him now.
He endorsed him because he’s a liberal socialist and always has been!!!
Luckily...Nobody noticed in the MSM..............Think about it?
Did Powell do such a great job in Gulf War I? First, I believe Stormin’ Norman was the general who ran that operation.
Second, I always was struck by Powell’s behavior at the end of that war. According to Powell, when Shwarzkopf (sp) had destroyed the Republican Guard on the Highway of Death, Colin Powell picked up a phone, handed it to G HW Bush and said “ Your objectives have been met, stop the killing”.
I always wondered, was Powell a wise statesman, a general who loved his troops? Or was he a bleeding heart who wanted to be known for ending the war? I’m not sure but I thought it was odd behavior.
I was hoping that Powell would have seen the truth by now. I can understand his first endorsement and being caught up in the frenzy, but there is no excuse for this second endorsement. Makes one wonder about his common sense and ability to think things through.
Obvious Sununu was being sarcastic.
Did Powell endorse Clinton, Gore or Kerry? If not, he is a RACIST, case closed.
The “old geezer” is making up for David Souter
“Dang right it is. Unless Powell has Ben faking all these years. Either is a possibility.”
I think we can safely say that Powell was faking being a republican to advance his career. I can’t see a “Road to Damascus” event in Powell’s life that would explain his political conversion.
What Sununu said is less controversial than the Media continuing to define Powell as a Republican when he is clearly not.
Sununu had to throw that in or he would have been accused of making a racist comment. He has been an awesome and fearless advocate for Romney. He flat out told Bill Richardson to shut up on hannity last night.
powell is a black racist “skin over country” sort of bigot.
“powell endorsing obama AGAIN will not move ten votes in the entire country”
I don't. Go away, John. And take Powell with you.
"Sununu and everyone else should not be cute about this. He & Romney will be called racist over these remarks."
Scary thought for the leftists: What if the cheap, easy days of "winning" arguments by pulling out the race-trump card are over? What if almost everybody judges Obama on the basis of his failed record, and not by the color of skin? What are the leftists going to do with themselves? They don't know much of anything outside of their race-obsessed bubble world...
