Juan Willams and John Sununu (Fox News)

Yes, John Sununu is still around. The former New Hampshire Republican governor faced off with Fox analyst Juan Williams on Thursday's Hannity show over a report that Mitt Romney was still listed as an executive of Bain Capital for up to three years after he claimed he'd left the company, according to Mediaite.

The conversation quickly turned to an assertion made by an Obama campaign staffer that Mitt Romney either lied about retiring in 1999 from Bain Capital or lied on legal documentation, implying Romney could have committed a felony. Sununu personally found it amazing the Obama campaign was the one to "bring felony into the discourse" given the president's ties to "Chicago politics" and felons who he used to be political allies with. Williams bashed Sununu's assertions as "character assassination," and insisted the facts of the Romney story were sound.

Sununu told Williams, "Don't let your blind loyalty for this president make you sound foolish" ... When Williams went after Romney on the issue of offshore accounts, Sununu brushed it aside and claimed over 90 percent of Democrats in Congress have them too, and so they're hypocrites for bashing Romney for it.

Hannity backed up Sununu's point by citing several Democrats who have offshore accounts, but Williams rebutted this point by saying "they're not running for president!" ...

Let the games begin. The presidential election season is really heating up.
