John Sununu

And is Papa Sununu ruing his new words?

by Skip February 10, 2016

Remember he said: I have no feeling for the electorate anymore. It is not responding the way it used to. Their priorities are so different that if I tried to analyze it I’d be making it up. Add to it, this which was said before yesterday’s NH Primary: GOPe Hack Sununu: “If Trump Only Wins […]

Expanding the GOP base; that’s what GOP leadership said to do

by Skip January 24, 2016

Or as Papa Smurf (John Sununu) famously used to say “Talk, talk, talk” to your family, friends, and neighbors to get them to convince them to join with the Republican Party.  Like just pointed out here, Trump has and is doing exactly what he told people to do. 2016 GOP Nominee Preference attended GOP Caucus […]

Gov. John Sununu has some explaining to do. Breitbart is reporting that, Sununu said, “I assume that even the Trump supporters want this country to move in a different direction.

A reflection of Gov. Sununu? Or on his judgment?

by Skip November 2, 2015

After all, this: I have no feeling for the electorate anymore. It is not responding the way it used to. Their priorities are so different that if I tried to analyze it I’d be making it up. And John E Sununu is out in the hustings hustling for John Kasich; it is clear that the Sununus […]

Liberty Wins the Day

by Tom June 1, 2015

At midnight, the Patriot Act provision, which granted the NSA permission to bulk-collect private phone metadata of law abiding American citizens, expired. Law abiding citizens.   Presumption of guilt.  Probable cause.   Sound familiar? When was the last time you can remember Congress doing something, actively or passively, to reduce the scope, size, and power […]

Notable Quote – Smurf Daddy

by Susan Olsen June 1, 2015

“This idea that some particular single issue disqualifies any of our good candidates is ridiculous and to be very blunt about it, I’m tired of stupid, Republican conservatives – or stupid conservatives, they may not even have a party label,” he said. “I’m tired of stupid conservatives giving Democrats the election.” I’m tired of disgraced […]

by Steve MacDonald November 14, 2014
Thumbnail image for Is it Time To Put Gov. Sununu Out To Political Pasture?

Hasn’t Governor Sununu done enough damage already?  Before you say it, that win in 2010 (while he was ‘running’ the NHGOP) only happened because of an entire movement in his party that he embraced when he thought they would give him what he wanted, but has since despised and scorned as they have refused to […]

Papa “Pimp” Smurf and Scott Brown

by Tom June 20, 2014

There’s a big shindig coming up at the Tuscan Kitchen in Salem this Monday. Being RINO country, it’s no surprise that “Papa Smurf” Sununu is holding a Scott Brown event in Salem, with NH Senator Chuck “Live Free with Medicaid”  Morse. It’s looking like the kick-off for the “Charge of the RINO Brigade” (or “RINOs Gone Wild @#!“) in […]

Here’s a “Thank’em” for Papa Smurf for playing with Andrea Mitchell’s head

by Skip October 4, 2012

Also known around these parts as TGOTN (“The Gnome Of The North“).  Well, our official motto IS “Thank’em when they’re right and spank’em when their wrong”.  We’ve been hard on him since the manuver to install Julianne Bergeron as his handpicked success as Chair of the NH GOP (hey, how’s that Wayne MacDonald doing, eh, […]

Governer Sununu Takes It To The Hole

by Steve MacDonald May 30, 2012

Governor Sununu looks a bit too much like Mr. Magoo here, but he’s running on all cylinders.  Why are you at CNN bringing up the birther debate when Governor Romney’s position is clear?  Why don’t you care about what Bill Maher does or says as an Obama advocate?  Why is CNN bringing up yesterdays left […]
