How the "American System" works

Hey, in a classic Republican move, an apology that is not really an apology. Human/tuber hybrid John Sununu (yes, still alive) spent yesterday morning calling the President "un-American" then said he made a mistake.
But Sununu was less apologetic over comments he made the same day on Fox News that seemed to directly question Obama’s American roots. “He has no idea how the American system functions,” Sununu told FOX News Tuesday morning.
Yeah, the "American System" functions like this:
The Washington Post wrote that Sununu's jets "took him to fat-cat Republican fund-raisers, ski lodges, golf resorts and even his dentist in Boston." Sununu had paid the government only $892 for his more than $615,000 worth of military jet travel...Sununu worsened the situation shortly afterwards when, after leaking rumors of financial difficulties in his family, he traveled to a rare stamp auction at Christie's auction house in New York City from Washington in a government limousine, spending $5,000 on rare stamps. Sununu then sent the car and driver back to Washington unoccupied while he returned on a corporate jet
Now THAT's the "American System" that makes Mitt Romney want to sing. [cross-posted at Firedoglake]

The thing is ... Sununu (isn't that some kind of foreign name?) was born in Cuba. To foreign parents. Now who, exactly, needs to learn how to be more American?

Guess the whole foreigner thing was already covered. Guess I should have scrolled down farther.
