About Colin Powell

The Washington Post

Under intense fire from the right, former secretary of state Colin L. Powell is preparing to answer his Republican critics this weekend in a television appearance that is likely to add fuel to his long-standing feud with top conservatives in his party.

Well, that’s nice and all. But let’s be clear. Colon Powell is no Republican. And he hasn’t been for a long time. You know, endorsing the Democratic candidate for President might have had something to do with that.

So, enough of Colon Powell, and Tom Ridge, and John McCain and a host of others telling the Republican Party how they should behave, what they should believe.

You guys are the reason the GOP is the minority party.

Not Rush Limbaugh. Not Sean Hannity. Not Sarah Palin.

“What Colin Powell needs to do is close the loop and become a Democrat, instead of claiming to be a Republican interested in reforming the Republican Party,” Limbaugh told listeners. And Cheney dryly commented: “I didn’t know he was still a Republican.”

Exactly.

    Your comment doesn’t merit a response. But if you wish to post here, watch your language.

    Colon Powell himself is without a doubt part of the problem and not the solution, for the Republicans, as well as the rest of conservative America. He cowed down, copped out, and voted for the “black man” instead of someone who at the least, was truely MAN enough to serve his country in a time of need. Forget him, Colon powell has become less than a foot note for his betrayal in helping flush America down the toilet.

    Well, I see there are a few honest americans still around. Why do men like Powell still claim to be a republican? It is true it is sometimes hard to tell where the Republican party stands. That is one reason I went Independent. I didn’t want to be part of a party that did not have the courage to take a strong stand. Let the gutless ones depart. We will pick up many Independents then. Now, to find a candidate that has the statesmenship and courage to lead this renewed party.
