John Sununu: Democrats Won Thanks To Voters Dependent On Government

He went into hiding after the election, but Romney's worst surrogate, disgraced and corrupt Bush I chief of staff John Sununu, has finally emerged from his hole:

If Republicans are trying to shy away from the notion that America is divided between productive capitalists and dependent moochers, they forgot to tell John Sununu. The former New Hampshire governor and Mitt Romney campaign surrogate said Tuesday that Democrats and President Barack Obama won reelection by turning out the moochers.

"They aggressively got out the base of their base, the base of their base thatís dependent, to a great extent economically, on government policy and government programs," Sununu said at a forum with two other Republican governors, according to the Concord Monitor.

Sununu's comment recalled Romney's infamous statement during the campaign that 47 percent of Americans are dependent on government and would vote for Obama no matter what. The remarks, delivered at a big-donor fundraiser in May, roiled the campaign.

"There are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent on government, who believe that, that they are victims, who believe that government has the responsibility to care for them," Romney said. "I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

This crooked fatass knows a thing or two about depending on govt for free stuff:

As White House Chief of Staff, Sununu reportedly took personal trips, for skiing and other purposes, and classified them as official, for purposes such as conservation or promoting the Thousand Points of Light. The Washington Post wrote that Sununu's jets "took him to fat-cat Republican fund-raisers, ski lodges, golf resorts and even his dentist in Boston." Sununu had paid the government only $892 for his more than $615,000 worth of military jet travel. Sununu said that his use of the jets was necessary because he had to be near a telephone at all times for reasons of national security. Sununu became the subject of much late-night television humor over the incident. Sununu worsened the situation shortly afterwards when, after leaking rumors of financial difficulties in his family, he traveled to a rare stamp auction at Christie's auction house in New York City from Washington in a government limousine, spending $5,000 on rare stamps. Sununu then sent the car and driver back to Washington unoccupied while he returned on a corporate jet. In the course of one week, 45 newspapers ran editorials on Sununu, nearly all of them critical of his actions. Sununu resigned his White House post on December 4, 1991.

Sununu repaid over $47,000 to the government for the flights on the orders of White House counsel C. Boyden Gray, with the help of the Republican Party. However, the reimbursements were at commercial rates, which are about one-tenth the cost of the actual flights; one ski trip to Vail, Colorado alone had cost taxpayers $86,330.

1. Has that old slug slithered out from under his rock again?

I wish someone would sprinkle some salt on him so he'd shrivel up and go away.

3. The people I've known that have been on welfare seem to get about $1000 a month

So if Sununu got $615,000 in taxpayer air travel, that's 615 months, or 51.25 years, of welfare coverage. But it's everybody else that wants free stuff from the government.

8. A disgrace to my state

He's always been a slimeball, now he wants to get to the top of the mountain and settle in as the nation's leading douchebag.
There are lots of candidates for that spot, but don't underestimate Sununu's abilities to win that race.
