Colin Powell is NOT a Republican. If a chicken calls itself a cow, is the chicken a cow? Of course not. Powell appeared on Meet the Press with David Gregory on Sunday and sounded like he just attended the Nancy Pelosi Summit of Anti-Conservative Talking Points and Race Baiting.
Powell referenced Sarah Palin and John Sununu, two conservative patriots, as being racist. He said Palins use of the phrase shuckin and jivin is racist. He said Sununus description of the President as lazy is racist. I am half-tempted to check out my local library to see if it has a book listing all the racist terms conservatives are not allowed to use. In my wildest imagination, I dont think I could have thought that these terms were even remotely racist.
Powell also said that you cant go around saying We dont want to have a solid immigration policy...we are going to make it hard for these minorities to vote as they did in the last election. I wonder if he thinks the Democrat plan for amnesty and open borders is a solid immigration policy. He went on to say theres also a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party. What do I mean by that? What I mean by that is they still sort of look down on minorities. I will agree with him in this sense: Im sure there are some Republicans who look down on minorities. Im also sure that there are some Democrats who look down on minorities and some Independents, Green Party members, and Socialists that look down on minorities.
He also couldnt contain himself and had to take a shot at so-called birthers and questioned why the Republican leaders allow that type of talk. First of all, Colin, Republicans allow ALL types of talk because we believe in freedom of speech. Secondly, there are only three Constitutional requirements to become President: the person must be at least 35 years old, have lived in the United States for at least 14 years, and be a natural-born citizen. My parents had to produce a birth certificate for me to go to kindergarten! Is it so extreme to ask a Presidential candidate, someone who could potentially be the leader of the free world, to provide evidence as to his or her eligibility as defined by the law, namely our Constitution?
Colin, the reason racism still exists is partially because people like yourself who constantly bring up the issue will not allow racism to die out. You are only relevant unfortunately whenever you say something controversial, which is very sad because I respect your military service and you have real talents and abilities to offer if you wanted to go that route. Yes, the Republican Party has been splintered a bit and is facing some identity problems. I think Republicans have identified another problem: Your rhetoric.

He's just doing what he has to do to keep the money coming in. He knows what the score is... no profit in rocking the boat.
Not me. I distrusted Powell from the moment I heard about him (during the first Gulf War when I was in grade school). Stormin' Norman Schwarzkopf was the military hero who led us to victory in that war, but the media played up Colin "sanctions will stop Saddam" Powell instead.
When the media started pimping this empty suit for President in 1996 because he was a "reasonable Republican", I KNEW he was bad news. When Bush picked Powell for Secretary of State in 2001, I thought it was a lousy choice and he only got the job because the media salivates over everything Powell says. I didn't trust him any further than I could throw him.
Powell has always been a snake and I knew it LONG before the Obama endorsement.
Race obsessed Race got him everything, all his promotions. For a military man to support Obama, it’s all about race, nothing more. He’s a POS supporting POS
What a disgrace this person is.
If I didn’t know better, I’d swear you were that Black Conservative cabbie I met in DC in 1995. He told me to my face not to trust Powell, that he was no good. He was right.
“Not me. I distrusted Powell from the moment I heard about him (during the first Gulf War when I was in grade school). Stormin’ Norman Schwarzkopf was the military hero who led us to victory in that war, but the media played up Colin “sanctions will stop Saddam” Powell instead. “
Good call. You were smart for a kid.
But then it was a kid who saw the Emperor’s new clothes for what they were.
It might be a Chick-fil-A commercial.
That is one GREAT photoshop!!
Thank you :) was one of my firsts when I started learning how to shop ;)
Oh.. don’t forget to look REAL close at the monitor in the center of the small screen :D
If he has an R by his name there will be those who say we need to vote for him. lol
He’s a pitiful little man. A hypocritical racist, a self seeking opportunist, a traitor. Must be all the dope from Jamaica
I wonder why Colin Powell is not officaly a member of the democratic party. He seems to agree with them on everything, he even wears their racist gogles allowing him to see racism in every little thing no matter how benite or frankly true.
Yes a man who spends that much time on the golf coarse and publicly delegates all his important tasks while utterly neglecting most of the rest is what lazy! Just because hes happens to have brown skin doesn’t make him a hard worker, nor does it make anyone elses observations about his work ethic unfounded and untrue.
Take your racist goggles off and look with your own eyes.
I damn near threw my davenport at the T.V. while I watched that jackass (I can call him that because he is a democrat)I wouldn’t even give him the honor of being called a RINO...he’s gone over the liberal cliff!!!
lol, I didn’t see that at first...thanks for pointing it out!
