The RINO party needs a Colin cleanse. Badly.

Affirmative action produces idiots to positions they are not worthy of.

Colin, if you want to be a democRAT, just change your party affiliation. Time for the GOP to disinvite a few members.

QUESTION 1: Is ANYONE out there able to name a time where he actually criticized something about Obama or the Democrats, and without also a backhand slap at the Republicans?

QUESTION 2: If Joe Biden declared that he was a Republican tomorrow, would the media then put him up as the Republican spokesman to discuss the future of the Republican Party and its positions on critical issues?

If the answer to Question 1 is NO, then the answer to Question 2 is YES - and we should just feel lucky that Biden hasn’t yet come up with that strategy.

“Sorry friend. It looks like your first comment got deleted by the mods and most of the responses are coming my way.”

You know what my comment was? It was that no one in the GOP wishes to stop anyone from voting other than those who vote more than once or are illegal to vote.

I also said this guy needs to go away quietly to a place where someone can take care of him, and I noted Mali is a nice place am sure.

Powell says, “We want everybody to vote”......

Well they did, all 149% of them

The only attempts to lower voter participation. Were those by Obama who urged his supporters to “get in their (our) faces” and to bring guns to the fight.

Then there was the Eric Holder method of vote suppression using the black panthers.

Or was Super Colon Blow Powell referring to increasing voter participation above 100% for Democrats as happened in parts of Cleveland and Philadelphia??

You are 100% right in this case. It makes my blood boil how a man that many of us once held in such high regard as Powell could turn into a demonic Judas.

The left, for whatever reason, has blackmailed him. Watched the interview. He doesn’t make sense. I believe this is what the left does to a lot of those who were once “right” and then “swich” sides...for whatever reason. One only needs to look at Patraeus. Why did Admiral Boorda really commit suicide? Perhaps he had enough integrity, above that which he was being blackmailed for, to commit suicide.
