National campaign co-chair and former New Hampshire governor John Sununu didn’t candy coat his opinions of Barack Obama‘s leadership and character today in a verbally violent conference call among top conservative Romney supporters as well as a group of small business owners. Sununu was quoted as saying:
“He [Obama] comes out of that that murky world in Chicago where politician and felon has become synonymous. It is an area where Tony Rezko is a convicted felon and is in prison, and just happened to be a guy that did a smarmy real estate deal with the president, where Rezko pays top dollar and the president pays a discount and the deal is able to be done.”
In a round about reply to recent Obama statements in Virginia that ‘If you’ve got a business – you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen’ Sununu also asserted that the president “has absolutely no idea how the American economy functions,” and goes on to add:
“The men and women all over America who have worked hard to build their businesses from the ground up is how our economy became the envy of the world. It is the American way, and I wish this president would learn how to be an American. The president has to learn the American formula for creating business.”
Team Obama responded with BAIN BAIN BAIN BAIN BAIN BAIN BAIN ROMNEY BAIN BAIN CAPITAL BAIN, which is becoming a broken record from the Obama campaign. Anytime they have incoming fire they simply hit the easy button and mention “bain capital” which is dangerous politics, because if that’s all they have on Romney and it becomes their reply to every ballistic missile which lands in their backyard, it will get so worn out that by election day voters will want Obama gone just to end the rhetoric.
Tip for team Obama: Change your song, it’s getting old.
