DUmpster DUmmies Meltdown: They Throw Colin Powell Under the Bus
Vanity

Posted on 10/19/2008 8:38:10 PM PDT by DrHannibalLecter

cheer up folks!

there is a meltdown going on at the DUmpster, apparently they've thrown Powell under the bus. Here are some quotes:

"Powell can shove his fake anthrax straight up his Bush Kissing ass."

"I agree with you trumad. One good deed doesn't erase the BAD deed. nt"

"Take a laxitive...the overflow is spilling out of your mouth!"

"Powell will never get the blood off his hands, and I wonder if this isn't a Rove move"

"This post needs to be locked.... This is not the time for such hate"

"Colin Powell is an amoral opportunist. This isn't redemption, he hasn't admitted wrongdoing."

"Some people here today are every bit as vile as the people they claim to hate."

Lets not mince words. These dummies will still vote for Obama. Powell was powerful for his influence on independents and moderate republicans.

They don’t need Powell anymore. The fix is in and their guy has this one in the bag. Powell showed himself for a fool today. It’s sad.

It looks like Mr. Powell has discovered the third calss:
Pleasing none of the people none of the time.

Poor Colin Powell...His love is taboo...he’s been cast out by both of our worlds. With no where to go, he spent the rest of his days wandering aimlessly in the wilderness.

The reaction from the PUMAs - while not as vile - is along the same lines.

They didn’t like him before - and they still don’t like him.

Some of us kinda liked him before - most suspected he was a rino - and now we don’t like him either.

Exactly - who is going to like him now?

A lot of undecideds/independents had this one figured out months ago. McCain may not be a great conservative, but he looks good in the center, and he's a helluva lot better than the far-left Obama.

Powell just had to throw a Palin cheap shot while he was at it. I thought his defense of Ayers was heartwarming. So this is how a General and former ambassador to the world acts. Sorry to say this , but as the days wear on he will look like a fool..

Well, at least one DUmmie has it exactly right, though probably for the wrong reasons.

You’ve read them all here, PUMA’s, bradley effect, over sampling of dems, PC, etc etc. Revealed means that the actual vote will go against recent polling, although the polling right before the election may be more accurate. The above factors will then be cited as the reasons.

Well, at least they’re consistent.

So Obama is endorsed by the architect of Bush’s foreign policy, which ultimately consisted of laying the diplomatic groundwork for invading Iraq. Obama’s campaign has been about, from day one, about how he was not Bush and did not agree with the Bush-Powell approach. It’s almost like Obama has become Bush and Powell approves.

If you are in the tank for Obama because you hate Bush’s foreign policy, well, surprise.

Powell has increased his adoration from both Repubs and Dems it would seem. Best thing for him was to keep his yap shut.

What I don't understand is why these has beens can't just go away. Powell, James Baker, Jimmah Carter, and tons of others. Who cares what their opinions are? They just live to get on TV, see their name in the papers or write another book. Away with all of them.

I remember having to post and post on the Swift Boat Forum that Bush would win despite the polls, there were a lot of doomsayers there too, just like here. I don’t see the thrill of crying doom at all, but I guess a lot of people get a kick out of it for some reason...too bad that is no way to live a happy life.

Not a good thing for Obama.

Because now Obama is praising the soldiers and Generals...Lefties are not going to like this

Rita X and Farrakhan will no doubt be having a problem with the Powell endorsement, too. Hee hee hee.

20th Anniversary Flashback: Rita X — The Short Version
July 31, 2008

http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/home/daily/site_073108/content/01125121.member.html

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: People have been have been requesting, ladies and gentlemen, to rehear the call from Rita X from Detroit. Now, we’ve got two versions of the Rita X call. We have the full version, which ran over nine minutes. That may be a bit much. But we might do that version tomorrow. We’re going to play the 2-1/2 minute version now as just a little tease.

BEGIN ARCHIVE CLIP

[]RITA X: [T]he president and his Chief Joints of Staff are planning a secret war involving their over 40-year knowledge of an encounter with a galactic fleet which has been called the unidentified flying saucers.

RUSH: Yes?

RITA X: Let me just say this. There is a spaceship called the mother plane.

RITA X: And on the mother plane it has what is called 1500 bombing planes, and very soon in the 1990s, a four deplosion [sic] on the UFO phenomenon which has been withheld from the public will be exposed.

RUSH: Uhhh, I see.

RITA X: The Pentagon, NASA space program, the president of the United States, and the joint chief of staff — both Congress, and the senator of the USA as well as the Navy and Air Force intelligence, FBI, CIA — will be forced to —

RUSH: You forgot Interpol, forgot Interpol.

RITA X: Well, will be forced to face the nation in the mounting crisis in the air and on the land and — and the sea, and give up the secret. What are the secrets? The secret is the president and his Chief Joints of Staff are planning a secret war involving their over 40-year knowledge of an encounter with a galactic fleet which has been called the unidentified flying saucers.

RUSH: Rita? Rita, hang on a minute. The “Chiefs of Joint,” as you say, the chairman of the Chiefs of Joint is a black man.

RITA X: Colin Colonel Powell?

RUSH: Colonel Colin Powell.

RITA X: He —

RUSH: (laughing) Colin Colonel Powell. It’s Colonel Colin Powell.

RITA X: Well, let me rephrase this. Uncle Tom Colin Colonel Powell.

RUSH: General! It’s General Colin Powell.

RITA X: Because he — he is planning genocide on the black community as Minister Farrakhan has revealed to the masses of the people that President [George H. W.] Bush has sat down with Colonel Colin Powell to plan genocide against the black community. But this is why the event. The mother plane is there, and the mother plane will destroy England, and that’s why you noticed that when the first sightings of the writing in the hedges, uh, from Stonehengees [sic] and the writings in the grass was 50 miles from what is call Stonehedges in England.

RUSH: Stonehedges, yes.

RITA X: The mother plane with the 1500 bomber plane were dropped know dropped three baby planes, three bombs on England and destroy England, and also she will destroy your nav— your — uh, the air, uh — the, uh, America air bases.

RUSH: Yeah.

RITA X: And her jets and everything.

END ARCHIVE CLIP

RUSH: Now, you might be asking, “Where is Rita X today?” Rita X was from Detroit. Rita X was an acolyte of Minister Louis Farrakhan. I would suspect that Rita X is actively involved in the Obama campaign today, perhaps a community organizer, a voter registration drive precinct captain, or something like that. But no question that Rita X today — Rita X, if you’re still there, we’d love to hear from you. I’d love to hear how it’s going in the Obama campaign, because we’re sure that’s where she is. Maybe she’s Ludacris’ road manager. Could be. You never know. The possibilities with the kind of brilliance that Rita X displayed and the knowledge and the understanding, the depth of understanding she has of world affairs and “Stonehenges” and so forth; the sky was the limit for her, including the mother plane.

END TRANSCRIPT

He's always been a fool as far as I'm concerned. Think he'd have risen to his present rank if he was white?

Powell is an ignorant token who should thank God for affirmative action.

I would have thought that the DUmmies would be happy.

It appears the BDS runs very deep indeed and touches anyone associated with GWB. Remember the Kossacks and DUmmies still are hoping that an Obammi/Biden administration will conduct some type of War Crimes Trails and appropriate hanging (I know - can't do it inside the US, but that doesn't stop them from dreaming).

Colin Powell deserves a good kick in the azz. Not because he endorsed a political candidate. He deserves to be kicked in the azz because he went before the UN and the world and made the case for us going to war with Iraq.

HE PUT OUR TROOP’S LIVES IN HARM’S WAY. When you put our soldiers lives on the line, you’d better be right. He was for it and then he was against it. We now have over 4,000 lives that have been lost because he supported us going to war.

He had plenty of information to make an informed decision. If he didn’t agree with the Bush adminstration, he should have said “no” or resigned. There is no way in hell I’d put our soldiers lives on the line unless I was absolutely sure of what I was doing.

We now have soldiers in Iraq and he’s saying that it is wrong to be there. Nice support for our troops you dirtbag.

He was a colossal failure as Secretary of State. I don’t give a damn what he has to say anymore.


NOTE: My post isn’t about if it was right or wrong to go into Iraq. That another debate. It’s about — IF YOU MAKE A DECISION TO GO TO WAR, YOU’D DAMN WELL BETTER BE RIGHT. 4000+ lives later and now this clown says he was wrong? #$%^ HIM!!!
