Taking a pin to Colin Powell's ego Part 1
It's bad enough that the country has one egomaniac thinking he is the world's messiah, now it looks like Colin Powell is trying to be the Republican Party's version. When Colin Powell endorsed Barack Obama the week before the election, I thought maybe after his endorsement he would finally switch parties and become a Democrat. Sorry to say no such luck. Not only is Colin Powell still a "Republican In Name Only", he's going after conservatives as the reason why John McCain lost the election. Collin Powell taped a segment for CNN's Fareed Zakaria that will air on Sunday's "GPS" program. These are some of the "enlightening comments" Collin Powell said on why the GOP lost
I couldn't let Powell's profound ignorance go unchallenged.
Powell ""There is nothing wrong with being conservative. There is nothing wrong with having socially conservative views — I don't object to that. But if the party wants to have a future in this country, it has to face some realities. In another 20 years, the majority in
this country will be the minority."
What exactly is Powell saying? What does social conservatism have to do with the "minority being the majority". Let me take a wild guess. Powell believes that Hispanics will become the majority and Whites will become the minority. What Colin Powell is saying in essence is to kiss up to Hispanics if Republicans want to win elections. It is fake clueless people like Colin Powell that is a strong reason why I don't like weak pandering Republicans. Powell thinks he is the smartest person in the room, yet he doesn't even know that nobody else is in the room. Social Conservatism has nothing to do with being "anti Hispanic". Liberals like to frame it as such and Powell seems to agree. If Powell understood Social Conservatism with respect to immigration, he would know that it's about securing the borders and cracking down on ILLEGAL ALIENS not NATURALIZED CITIZENS. Only CNN would be dumb enough to take Powell seriously. Powell also thinks that the GOP used a strategy of "polarization" to win the election,and it backfired. Once again Powell shows how clueless he really is. It was the person that Powell endorsed Barack Obama and his drones that made "race" an issue, "class warfare" an issue, and "gender" an issue. If Collin Powell truly believes that conservatives having strong beliefs is "polarizing". He needs a reality check. Powell failed to mention in his interview that John McCain ran one of the weakest campaigns ever in regards to political attacks. The most offensive comment that came from the McCain campaign if you want to call it an offensive comment was when Governor Palin said Obama was "paling" around with terrorist. Funny how so many Obamatrons took offense to a factual comment. So I don't know exactly what Powell considers "polarizing" nor do I care. Colin Powell isn't in the position to blame radio personalities like Rush Limbaugh either. People like Limbaugh, Neil Bortz, MIchael Savage, Mark Levin, Tom Marr, Luara Ingraham and Bill Cunningham represents traditional conservatism. People like Collin Powell, Condi Rice, Michael Medved, John McCain, Arlene Specter, Lindsey Graham, Chuck Hagel. Trent Lott, Arnonld Schwartzenegger, Wayne Gilchrest, Paul Pawlenty, Charlie Crist are the "neo cons aka new conservatives". These are the people that believe in "going along to get along". They believe that conservatism in it's purest form needs to be watered down or "modernized". These are the ones that feel the need to stick a dagger in the back of real conservatives in order to get head. These neo conservatives are always the ones trying to convince that real conservatives must sell out their principals and core beliefs in order to give an image of being "bi partisan". Notice you will rarely see Democrat liberals reach across the aisle or sellout their own in order to gain favor with Republican conservatives. Then again they aren't suckers like neo conservatives or fakes like Collin Powell.
