During an appearance on Fox News on Tuesday morning, Mitt Romney surrogate and former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu (R) argued that President Obama did not have the requisite business experience to create jobs because he was “smoking something” in Hawaii:

SUNUNU: This guy doesn’t understand how to create jobs. So there is no surprise — there should be because of that statement no surprise on why he failed so miserably over the last four years, in terms of job creation. He has no idea how the American system functions, and we shouldn’t be surprised about that, because he spent his early years in Hawaii smoking something, spent the next set of years in Indonesia, another set of years in Indonesia, and, frankly, when he came to the U.S. he worked as a community organizer, which is a socialized structure, and then got into politics in Chicago.

Watch it:

This is hardly the first time GOP politicians have attempted to stoke controversy around Obama and drugs. Rep. Allen West (R-FL) attacked the president earlier this summer for “doing blow and smoking dope.”

Update

On a media conference call organized by the Romney campaign, Sununu said, “I wish this president would learn how to be an American.”
