Sununu apologizes for anti-Obama remarks

Irwin, Pennsylvania (CNN) – Mitt Romney's national campaign co-chair John Sununu apologized Tuesday afternoon for saying he wished President Barack Obama would "learn how to be an American" earlier in the day.

Appearing on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer," Sununu said he regretted using those words on a campaign conference call.

    To be brief: I was disgusted by all the comments that John Sununu made about Barack Obama, but the one comment that was utterly appalling was when he responded to Wolf Blitzer's comment about how big corporations/banks are sitting on trillions of dollars, BECAUSE, IN SUNUNU'S WORDS: "WE ARE WAITING TO SEE WHO BECOMES THE NEXT PRESIDENT; IF IT'S BARACK OBAMA, THE MONEY WILL LEAVE THIS COUNTRY, AND IF IT IS MITT ROMNEY WE WILL USE IT HERE IN THE UNITED STATES." THAT IS A VERY SCARY MESSAGE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. WE WILL ONLY HELP YOU WITH OUR DOLLARS IF MITT ROMNEY WINS. ARE YOU KIDDING?? HOW ANTI-AMERICAN CAN A PERSON BE?!! IN THE MEAN TIME, MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ARE JOBLESS AND HOMELESS BECAUSE THE FAR-RIGHT PEOPLE WANT BARACK OBAMA OUT OF OFFICE. WOLF, PLEASE BRING THIS UP IN YOUR NEXT NEWS SHOW AND CALL JOHN SUNUNU ON THIS!!! THIS IS A NO-WIN SITUATION FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!!

    His comments just show the facts about the republican party!!! They are out of touch, greedy, and only care about the rich. He supports the Corperations holding the country hostage, 2 TRILLION in the bank but still not hiering wonder why we have 8% unemployment. Its not Obama its the Republicans who think they can do what they want and refuse to work with him, and if Im not mistaken wasnt the unemployment over 10% when he took over? You ask me 2% drop with no support and the market going from 6k to almost 13k not to bad, just think if had support from the evil,corrupt, unethical repblicans where we would be!!! Keep it up Obama we have your back

    The damage has been done, all the apologizing in the world will not change the meaning of what he said.

    Sununu's mother was born in El Salvador, maybe we should be suspicious about his claim to being a "real" american? I wonder how many times he went to El Salvador to visit his immediate family or how many times he went to Beirut to visit his father's side of the family?
