Ever heard of an intellectual free thinking lemming? Good luck in finding one. Blacks have wasted their political capital. The Democrat Party doesn't feel they have to work for the black vote, they EXPECT IT or else. There lies the problem with a racial group giving unfounded loyalty towards a political party that doesn't deserve it.

Time for Colin Powell to exit "party left" Part 2
History has proven that moderate Republicans simply can't beat liberal Democrats in Presidential Elections. Gerald Ford lost to Jimmy Carter. Bob Dole lost to Bill Clinton and John McCain lost to Barack Obama. The moderate wings of the GOP had to blame Palin in order to keep alive the "myth" that the GOP has to move to the center in order to be viable. This is where their argument collapse upon itself like a house of cards. If the country truly became a "center" balanced nation, why did Obama beat McCain? Obama isn't a centrist. He's as left as left can get. Here's the second argument. If Palin was the "weak point" of the McCain ticket due to her being "polarizing" according to Colin Powell, how did George Bush win two terms with Dick Cheney? Dick Cheney was actually way more conservative then George Bush. The left loathed Dick Cheney. The media had vodoo dolls of Cheney. Cheney was portrayed as the puppeteer of Bush, yet Bush won two terms with him on the ticket. This goes to show why it is absurd to even believe for one minute that the country has changed in five years from center-right to the center during the time Bush was re-elected in 2004 until Obama was elected in 2009. Powell's is so caught up in his ego, he can't even see what is right in front of his face. Americans don't want "bigger government". They also don't want to "pay more in taxes". Powell is out of touch with not only the GOP, he's out of touch with the nation in general. That is why most people believe the GOP "doesn't have a message". The party should be listening to people like Rush Limbaugh, Jim DeMint, Tom Tancredo, Duncan Hunter, Mark Levin, Tom Mc Clintock, Mark Sanford, Bobby Jindal, Mitt Romney and yes Sarah Palin. These people shared the views of what made the GOP a majority party on the congressional and presidential level. Colin Powell has proven that he can run his mouth and not have a clue about what the American people want from their elected officials. I agree with Limbaugh. It is time for Powell to follow the Arlen Specter's lead and change his voter's registration card from Republican to Democrat.
