Former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu (R) again showed himself to be one of the more outspoken, plain-spoken surrogates of the Romney campaign on the Fox Business Network last night.
“I like to point out how they avoid telling the truth all the time. And I think this morning, when Stephanie Cutter went on one of the morning shows and said that President Obama in the last two-and-a-half years has created more jobs than Ronald Reagan in his recovery, shows you how they lie — L-I-E, lie!” Sununu said.
“Obama is bragging about creating about four million jobs in the last two-and-a-half years. He’s still short of creating a positive number over his full term, but they’re bragging about four million jobs,” he added. “And Ronald Reagan in his full eight years created 16 million jobs. Sixteen is a hell of a bigger number than four million jobs. So Stephanie Cutter lies, and this Obama administration can’t count!”
The former White House chief of staff under George H.W. Bush has also referred to Obama’s campaign team as “delusional.”
“Americans, including our seniors and even our young people, understand that when you give them the facts and the truth, that they’ve got to be part of the solution,” Sununu said. “And I think that’s what you’re seeing happening in America, and I think that’s what the next eight or nine weeks are all about.”
