John Sununu: Colin Powell Endorsed Obama Because He’s Black

John Sununu: Colin Powell Endorsed Obama Because He’s Black
Views:

Leave it to good old John Sununu to say out loud what the rest of them only say in private. As a top surrogate for the Romney campaign they must have been thrilled to hear that. Here's what he said to Piers Morgan tonight on CNN.

SUNUNU: You have to wonder whether that’s an endorsement based on issues or that he’s got a slightly different reason for President Obama.

MORGAN: What reason would that be?

SUNUNU: Well, I think that when you have somebody of your own race that you’re proud of being President of the United States — I applaud Colin for standing with him.
