John Sununu has been Mitt Romney’s most rabid attack dog in the press and he uses some good old fashioned racism in his attempt to sway voters, saying in separate interviews that President Obama is both stupid and lazy, playing into old racist stereotypes:
Sununu described Obama’s performance as “babbling,” “lazy,” and “disengaged,” and dismissed the possibility that he could do better in the future. “When you’re not that bright you can’t get better prepared,” he said…
During a separate interview on MSNBC, Sununu doubled down on the characterization. “I think you saw him admit it the night before when he delivered the pizzas. He said, you know, they’re making me do this work. He didn’t want to prepare for this debate. He’s lazy and disengaged.”
This is the same dog whistle Newt Gingrich has been using, that Obama is lazy and just wants to sleep in and hit the golf course. Could they be any more obvious about it?
