Clips From Friday: Cory Booker and Ann Coulter on John Sununu's comments

As John Sununu's recent comments continued to make noise and news throughout the media and across various political platforms, on Friday night Piers Morgan welcomed Cory Booker for his position on the commentary.

Speaking about Colin Powell's recent endorsement of Barack Obama, the former New Hampshire Governor used the "Piers Morgan Tonight" platform to imply that it was based upon race, rather than the issues:

"Well, I think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being President of the United States," Sununu said Thursday. "I applaud Colin for standing with him."

Seeing the video of the Sununu remarks, Booker who, like Powell, is an African-American and Obama supporter, suggested it represents a larger issue for the GOP as a whole:

"The problem with the Republican Party, when you have people in your party who come out and say things, bigoted things, things against women, things against gay, it begins to undermine the Republican Party's ability to reach out to these demographic groups," said Booker. "When you continue to have surrogates like this that represent - or even elected officials, frankly, or people running for Senate, it really undermines the Republican Party's ability to reach out."

Also on Friday, ultra-conservative firebrand Ann Coulter joined the program live, adding her insight to Sununu's remarks:

"I think he's [Sununu] probably wrong. But I just don't think it's such a terrible thing to speculate about."

"I just think it's a tempest in a teapot," said Coulter, adding "If it were the case, if Colin Powell said I'm voting for him because he's the first black president, I wouldn't think that's outrageous."

Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as Coulter compares African-Americans who vote for Obama because of their race to a time in which "Irish Catholics voted for JFK just because he was Irish Catholic."

    Piers Morgan is a gentleman. Ann Coulter displays the perfect symptoms of a Sciopath.

      Piers Morgan a gentleman? Obviously you have taken Morgan at face value, perhaps you should research your subject more carefully! Your assessment of Ann Coulter is even more ridiculous, 'amateur' psychologists, you just can't help yourselves. PS the correct spelling is sociopath !

        Ann displays more of an Authoritarian Complex with narcissistic traits.

    Cory Booker is so right....The Republican party fell into the abyss.
    Their image has been so tarnished that it will probably be decades before we see a Republican take up residence in the Whitehouse.

      I came from a family of Republicans. Today even Mom will be voting for Presidant Obama. We still get calls from the Republican Party member wanting us to vote for Romney. We are the silent majority that will be voting for Obama in Virgina.

      I sure hope you are right but the polls show Romney and the Pres. are virtually tied. I cannot believe that 50% of Americans do not see through Romney and the rest of the GOP. If Romney is elected Americans will be subjected to laws and policies decided by the likes of Atkins, Kununu, Mourdoch, etc. and the influence from their pals like Donald Trump and Rush Limbaugh. In other words, the country will be run by a bunch of radical lunatics.

        So, you prefer to let things stand. Well, I guess you don't mind the country remaining a 'basket' case ! You may not like Romney, but at least he has the credentials and a proven track record when it comes to economics. Oh, I cannot imagine him lying and covering up the truth behind the "Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi" – You foolish people, you deserve everything you get !

        Equally, I find it incredible that 50% would even consider voting for Obama !

      Republicans need to stop calling themselves the Party of Lincoln since they stop being the Party of Lincoln after Civil Rights Act of 1964 was sign. This Republican Party is the Party of Jefferson Davis, Wall Street, Military Industrial Complex, and Neocons.

    Romney must link Obama's premature reaction to a looming Hurricane Sandy with a press conference on Sunday, a full day before the storm made landfall, with that surrounding the attacks in Benghazi. He needs to ask why the response this time was so quick. He must be the one to ask that question! He needs to make the point that Obama looks like a guy with a poor grasp of two different situations.

    I stopped listening to Coulter years ago. She will do or say anything for publicity and money. I think her last book of lies and hate earned about $35m and Collin Powell on the other hand is a true American focused on the issues and not looking for a payday. There seems to be no room in the current Republican Party for anyone who thinks for themselves. They say they love America but they just don't love Americans...lol.

    Nice post. I study one thing tougher on completely different blogs everyday. It should always be stimulating to learn content from different writers and observe a little one thing from their store. I’d choose to make use of some with the content on my blog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link in your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.
