John Sununu and Juan Williams Debate the President’s Business Comments
Former New Hampshire governor, John Sununu and political analyst Juan Williams joined Sean Hannity to discuss President Obama’s recent comments regarding success in America and Mitt Romney’s response that came today.
Juan Williams defended the president’s remarks, saying that he doesn’t think it’s damaging to his campaign. He said, “To suggest that somehow in America, a country that has political stability, that has laws that protect business, stop bribery, stop corruption – America is the number one place in the world to do business.”
Sununu responded, “Look, there are lots of countries with roads and bridges and sewers, but they don’t create jobs and businesses like America. This is different. We have entrepreneurs who have a spirit of being willing to make the sacrifice of taking a second mortgage, going out and hiring a few people, and taking a chance and creating a lot of jobs. And all the president has been doing is condemning success.”
The former governor asked, “How can you be president of this country if you condemn the success that America is noted for and when you demean the business people, particularly the small business people that you hope will create some of the jobs that this administration hasn’t been able to coax out of the private sector, when you insult them you scare them again.”
