Americans do have standards and values so when viewing TV/cable these standards should be respected. We shouldn't be spoon fed frank, fanatical racism without being called out for what it is. John Sununu is free to be a fanatical bigot, belligerently so, if he wishes, in the same way passersby are free to speak at the risk of their profanity being over heard. To a point. However, whenever John Sununu speaks on the air or to the public his racism should be called out. Since Sununu is deployed by Mitt Romney to appeal to the basist of the Republican base, to convey Romney's messaging, Mitt Romney should be called out too.
Here is only the latest in a legacy of Sununu's insulting Americans with no diect objections or rebukes.
Here's Sununu brutishly calling the President "lazy".
Mitt Romney knows that Sununu has a history of integrity problems but uses him as a spokeman anyway. This is Romney's character!
Time magazine dubbed Sununu "Bush's Bad Cop" on the front cover on May 21, 1990.John Sununu is a racist. Anyone who gives this piggish speaker a mic without saying so is complicit.
At the recommendation of George W. Bush, Sununu resigned his White House post on December 4, 1991....
Sununu angered some when he was the only governor of a U.S. state not to call for repeal of the controversial UN General Assembly Resolution 3379 ("Zionism is Racism"). He later reversed his position on this issue and supported the Republicans' pro-Israel 1988 platform.
As White House Chief of Staff, Sununu reportedly took personal trips, for skiing and other purposes, and classified them as official, for purposes such as conservation or promoting the Thousand Points of Light. The Washington Post wrote that Sununu's jets "took him to fat-cat Republican fund-raisers, ski lodges, golf resorts and even his dentist in Boston." Sununu had paid the government only $892 for his more than $615,000 worth of military jet travel. Sununu said that his use of the jets was necessary because he had to be near a telephone at all times for reasons of national security. Sununu became the subject of much late-night television humor over the incident. Sununu worsened the situation shortly afterwards when, after leaking rumors of financial difficulties in his family, he traveled to a rare stamp auction at Christie's auction house in New York City from Washington in a government limousine, spending $5,000 on rare stamps. Sununu then sent the car and driver back to Washington unoccupied while he returned on a corporate jet. In the course of one week, 45 newspapers ran editorials on Sununu, nearly all of them critical of his actions.
Sununu repaid over $47,000 to the government for the flights on the orders of White House counsel C. Boyden Gray, with the help of the Republican Party. However, the reimbursements were at commercial rates, which are about one-tenth the cost of the actual flights; one ski trip to Vail, Colorado alone had cost taxpayers $86,330.
Birds of a feather...
