[su_right_ad]Former Bush 41 Chief of Staff John Sununu is blasting President Obama for going to Kenya, saying he’s just going to places he wants to visit now. And Sununu is using this trip to reintroduce the birther issue.

“He’s going to take advantage of the last two years and go to all the places he wants to go to,” Sununu said.

But then he added: “His trip back to Kenya is going to create a lot of chatter and commentary amongst the hard right, who still don’t see him as having been born in the U.S. He’s just inciting some chatter on an issue that should have been dead a long time ago.”

“The most important thing is are what your priorities are,” McCallum added, “in terms of where the hotspots are in the world and what really needs to be addressed, and whether or not Kenya is on that list.”

“I think the hot spot today are these negotiations in Iran and the battle in Yemen and Syria,” Sununu said. “I hope the president is paying attention there and doing more focus on that than making travel plans.”

What, a man can’t visit his birthplace without being criticized?

    (“John Sununu goes for a haircut.” MST3K)

    John should stay away from all stories involving aeroplanes. lol

    John H. Sununu was the White House Chief Of Staff under George H. W. Bush until resigning his post in 1991. For his notorious misuse of government planes for personal reasons, he was frequently mocked on MST3k in shots featuring airplanes with a riff that the pilot was Sununu on his way to a haircut.

    That’s a darn good point. I hope Obama is paying attention to things like Iraq and Yemen while he’s gallivanting around the world in Air Force One. I mean, it’s not like Air Force One is packed full of high-tech communications systems that allow the President to do, y’know, President Stuff when he’s airborne. Oh. Wait. Yes, it is. “The Boeing E-4 Advanced Airborne Command Post is a strategic command control military aircraft operated by the United States Air Force. The E-4 serves as a survivable mobile command post for the National Command Authority, namely the President of the United States.”

    See, now, nobody would have given President Obama’s trip to Kenya a second thought. Nobody would’ve thought to “incite some chatter on an issue that should have been dead a long time ago” That is, until John Sununu brought it up.

    This guy looks and talks stupid.
    I’m sure like everyone else President Obama misses his birthplace. So what’s the big deal with that?
    Is he suggesting that the president should instead go to hotspots Iran, Yemen & Syria? How stupid he thinks the president is?
    Who knows, the president might finally find and bring his Kenyan birth certificate to the US now that it’s okay for Canadian Ted Cruz to be president.

      He goes to his birth place in Honolulu every Christmas.

      This time he will go to his father’s birth country.

      But, we cannot expect trailer park trash like you to understand that.

        I’m pretty sure that jybarz was being sarcastic.

        Relax. We all know the president isn’t Kenyan. He’s a member of the Muslim Brotherhood hell bent on destroying America.

          Bush Jr and the Neo Cons and Teabaggers are doing a their best to destroy America..

            ….and if Jeb is the next president, then we can kiss out butts good-by because I’m pretty sure he’d e more than willing to start another war.

    So who bothered to resurrect this waste of space and give him soapbox? His views are about as relevant as a rock. Forced to resign his post or face legal repercussion makes Sununu a classic republican mouthpiece.

    Who cares what Sununu thinks?!

    And, the right wing nut jobs and Tin Foil Hat types have never supported
    our President so who needs them and who cares what they think??!!

    Furthermore, Obama is inciting Islamophobes to believe that he is a Muslim extremist every time he dines on falafel.
