Romney Campaign Co-chair Says Powell Endorsed Obama Because He's Black

Speaking on CNN, Romney campaign co-chair and renowned bloviator John Sununu had the following exchange with host Piers Morgan:

“When you take a look at Colin Powell, you have to wonder whether that’s an endorsement based on issues or whether he’s got a slightly different reason for preferring President Obama,” Mr. Sununu said.

Mr. Morgan asked flatly, “What reason would that be?”

Mr. Sununu responded, “Well, I think 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.”
