Now that John Sununu, one of the Romney campaign's mouthpieces, has officially weighed in on why Colin Powell supports Obama, the time has come to examine how the modern GOP may attempt to explain away some of the other pro-Obama voter blocs.
*Dons on the elephant mask*
In no particular order.
Native born Blacks: Two words. Black Panthers. Either that or they belong to the 47% of leeches who want to ensure their welfare checks will continue to show up in their mailboxes.
African born Blacks: Obama's relatives and childhood playmates. Donald Trump can prove it.
Whites: Socialist union attack dogs, pacifists, Jesus-haters, over-educated scientists or just your plain, run of the mill race/nation traitors.
Mexican/Central Americans: Bunch of drug lords with illegal relatives that wants easy citizenship. Have to admit that their love for assault weapons is pretty neat however. Taking potshots at me across the border, not so neat.
Other Hispanics: Chavez-like America haters who should just accept the fact that their home nations belong in our backyard. American Exceptionalism owns you, fact.
Mideast/Arabs/Persians: Gee whiz, siding with their closet Muslim Brotherhood accomplice. What a shock!
East Asians: Shills for their native countries so they can continue feeding their job theft habit. Essentially fronts for anti-American forces such as Samsung, Sony, HTC and the entire 1.4 billion strong nation of China. Possibly some communist infiltrators as well.
Asian Indians: Hold on, they aren't the same as Pakistanis? Whatever, close enough. They need to stop voting and go back to answering my calls to 1-800 numbers (but no phone sex lines please). I really hate holding and listening to that elevator music.
Women: Annoying feminists who care far too much about their vagina. Don't they know that it is just a holster to my gun? They should be thankful that they even have suffrage. Now don't even get me started on single women or single mothers.
Young adults: Stupid college kids. They don't even realize that I control their jobs and hiring, not that there would be any openings under my trickle down economy.
Homosexuals/Bisexuals/TVs: Devils, witches and deviants who are out to ruin my traditional marriage that has a 50/50 chance of succeeding. Of course some exceptions could be made if two lesbians of a certain caliber were to invite me to convert them.
Please forgive me if I left out anyone in particular.

All sarcasm and snarky remarks aside, yes I realize that this list and the views espoused were quite over-the-top. Yes, I know many stereotypes were mentioned which some conservatives may actually disagree with. If that were the case then great, wonderful, fantastic. I certainly hope that the American conservatism of today does not equate to that level of ignorance. Regardless, that was not the main point behind this little exercise. Rather, it was to scrutinize the thought process behind the casual and callous explanation the Romney campaign utilized to dismiss Colin Powell's endorsement of President Obama. Of all the reasons they could have retorted with, they went with the shallowest route and chose his superficial skin color. If they can stoop to that level of indecency and incredulity when it comes to a moderate Republican like Powell, can those satirical views I expressed above be all that far away from their minds? To be perfectly honest, I would not bet any money against that possibility.
