    Gen. Powell endorses Obama because he's black, says Romney campaign chairman

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ta-VcM7UFu0

    I wonder if Sununu supports Romney because he's white.

    Side not, How does Pierce Morgan have a job? How the heck does he not follow up on that answer?

    Meh.

    I have been treated to African Americans openly speaking about voting for Obama because he is black...for 4 years. As a matter of fact...the media fawns over it.

    Is race based voting news to you?

    You don't think Gen. Powell has earned more respect than that? In announcing his endorsement he laid out why he came to the decision he did.

    I don't believe anyone questioned if Sen. Lieberman supported Sen. McCain because he was white.

    So...you agree with my post, but your feelings for Gen. Powell are hurt.

    I see.




    Powell is a politician trying to distance himself from his own, adult decisions...and place blame.

    Some libs see him as a victim...which is the lib sickness in a nutshell.

    Knock yourself out.

    I think Powell stated in 2008, when he first voted for Obama, that he liked the idea of voting for a black president.

    That is his prerogative. You can vote for whoever you want for whatever reason you want. And Obama getting 90+ percent of the black vote isn't bc his policies are good.

    and Bill Clinton, Al Gore, and John Kerry all got 85-90% of the black vote because?

    Lets try it again....

    African Americans have been openly speaking about voting for Obama because he is black...for 4 years. The media fawns over it.

    Is race based voting......news to you?

    Or is it only offensive when a white guy mentions it?

    Blacks vote for Democrats, overwhelmingly. That is not news, no.

    Some yes. Most? Close to half? No.

    Michael Steele ran for the U.S. Senate in Maryland in 2006. He got 25% of the black vote, Ben Cardin got 72% (yes, he's white) The amount of black people voting for Obama only because he's black is probably the same % of people voting against him because he's black.

    Are we going to create a thread for every surrogate that says something controversial.

    No need to get butthurt.

    Obama's surrogates basically blamed Romney for a woman's death. And have claimed he is a tax cheat.

    A better question is, how is Piers Morgan not wasting away in a British prison right now after that phone hacking scandal?

    No, but we will for Romney Campaign Chairman John Sununu. Same guy who said Obama "needs to learn how to be an American"
