Former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu, a Romney campaign surrogate, said that President Obama’s debate performance showed him to be “lazy and detached” in an appearance on MSNBC Thursday.
Obama “revealed his incompetence, how lazy and detached he is, how he has absolutely no idea how serious the economic problems of the country are, and how he has failed to even begin to address them,” Sununu said.
Host Andrea Mitchell asked Sununu if he wanted to take back that statement: “Did you really mean to call barack obama the president of the united states lazy?”
Sununu said he did: “Yes. I think — I think you saw him admit it the night before when he delivered the pizzas. He said, you know, ‘they’re making me do this work.’ He didn’t want to prepare for this debate. He’s lazy and disengaged.”
