Romney Owns His Surrogates’ Racism (Limerick)

Mitt Romney’s campaign co-chair John Sununu has a long history of making racist comments and being forced to (sort of) walk them back. His attributing Colin Powell’s endorsement of Obama to their both being black, is only Sununu’s latest race-baiting remark.

And yet Sununu (and others with a similar history) remain valued Romney surrogates. (Don’t kid yourself — there’s racism behind Donald Trump’s Birther garbage and his Obama college transcript crapola.)

So here’s a good question posed by John Presta: Isn’t it time for John Sununu, Mitt Romney’s racist surrogate, to step aside?

Romney Owns His Surrogates’ Racism (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Romney’s allies quite frequently base
Their attacks on Obama on race.
Of this fact, Mitt’s aware—
Seems he just doesn’t care.
Mitt’s campaign’s racist face — a disgrace!

Update: Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, Colin Powell’s chief of staff during his time as Secretary of State criticized the racism of his (Republican) party:

Let me just be candid: My party is full of racists. And the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants President Obama out of the White House has nothing to do with the content of his character, nothing to do with his competence as commander-in-chief and president, and everything to do with the color of his skin. And that’s despicable.

  1. Romney and his assorted ken
    Are a strange and spooky group of men
    Their attacks are race baited and based
    Yet it is their ignorance that must be erased
    You know what to do where and when

  2. What truly bothers me as much as any other
    Is the buried racism in a direction other
    The one drop rule
    is oh so not cool
    Has everyone forgotten Obama had a MOTHER

    The man has no character, and appears eager to hop into bed with anyone who will further his ambitions. Sad. And the Christan right supports this guy?

    Very sad indeed, Hansi. Thanks for the verse, Pearl!

  5. Nice! I’ve been away too long.

    I wrote about Wilkerson last week. I don’t really understand people like him. Why does he still claim to be a Republican? If the Democrats approved a platform that called for the elimination of all property rights, I would stop calling myself a Democrat. I’m a Democrat because I believe in what the party supposedly believes in. It isn’t an identity.

    More later, I’m pretty sure. (I have this strange idea that after the election, I may no longer exist. Really. Kinda.)
