    It should have ben asked then, but it's never too late to ask. Next time Sununu is on -- or frankly, the next time any Romney surrogate is on TV, the question needs to be asked whether white Republicans are supporting Romney for his race.

      Yes! The Repugnants have been dog-whistling white racist wingers since McCain's "That one" in 1 of their 2008 debates.

      Then there was the revelation of the secret dinner on Inauguration Night 2009, in Robert Draper's book, "Do Not Ask What Good We Do: Inside the U.S. House of Representatives."

      ...The guest list that night was just over 15 people total and included Republican Reps. Eric Cantor (Va.), Kevin McCarthy (Calif.), Paul Ryan (Wis.), Pete Sessions (Texas), Jeb Hensarling (Texas), Pete Hoekstra (Mich.) and Dan Lungren (Calif.), along with Republican Sens. Jim DeMint (S.C.), Jon Kyl (Ariz.), Tom Coburn (Okla.), John Ensign (Nev.) and Bob Corker (Tenn.). Non-lawmakers there included Newt Gingrich.
      Republican hack Frank Luntz was there, too.

      Pinocchio R$'s July 2012 ad:

      "Candidate Obama lied about Hillary Clinton."
      Certainly, in the first 2012 debate, where he directly implied the POTUS was a pathological liar, never mind that he's talking about his own pathological self:
      “Look, I got five boys. I’m used to people saying something that’s not always true, but just keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping I will believe it.”
      The Wasilla Hillbilly's "shucking and jiving" was the first overt racist taunt as we close in on election day. Being a woman, she who quits/she who shoots wolves, as irrelevant as she is, not only has the media platform necessary to rouse white racist women Repugnants, and Repugs know that there will be no public response. Repug women find a black president repugnant, although his mother's white like them, so they will vote against their own, their daughters--their children's--best interests.

      Money Boo Boo's campaign co-chair Sununu doubled down AND played an ace in their blatant race baiting game in that he included Colin Powell, knowing that there are non-TP Repugs who continue to support--and secretly wish--that Powell had run for president instead of Johnny Mc.

      Just no re: the Taggster....

      They ain't playing.

      We ain't either.

      Proverbs 24:10 . [If] thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength [is] small.
