Taking a pin to Colin Powell's ego Part 2
"The GOP must see what is in the "hearts and minds" of African-American, Hispanic and Asian voters "and not just try to influence them by… the principles and dogma."
Powell is advocating for the GOP to break everybody down into little sub groups like the Democrats. Does Powell like Democrats see other racial groups as being different then "ordinary everyday citizens"? I guess it's too hard for Powell to see everybody regardless of race, creed gender as "equals". If appealing to people based on principals is so taboo according to Powell, then what does he recommend the GOP use to appeal to other groups? Silly Powell needs to understand that having principals is what contrasts a person's views, beliefs, morals from others. Powell think conservatives are "shouting at the world", so what exactly does he see as the feel good kumbaya message from liberals? Is it when they call Republicans "nazis"and "bible thumpers"? As for Rush Limbaugh, Powell's under the impression that Limbaugh is the leader of the conservative movement. He is not. He is a conservative news commentator. The reason why Limbaugh and people like him are so hugely successful is because they speak the language of conservatism, which means they relate to the average everyday conservative man and women. That is why people like Powell can only get the ear of a last place cable network, country club republicans that ran a candidate just like Powell and people that wouldn't vote for him if his life depended on it. Your dismissed Powell.
