Colin Powell Slams Idiot Presentations by Some Republicans, Urges GOP Leaders to Speak Out
In an interview with ABCs Diane Sawyer and George Stephanopoulos during ABCs special inauguration day coverage this morning, former Secretary of State Colin Powell lashed out at people in the Republican Party who spent the last four years spreading birther nonsense and other things that demonize the president, calling on GOP leaders to denounce such talk publicly.
Republicans have to stop buying into things that demonize the president. I mean, why arent Republican leaders shouting out about all this birther nonsense and all these other things? They should speak out. This is the kind of intolerance that Ive been talking about where these idiot presentations continue to be made and you dont see the senior leadership of the party say, No, thats wrong. In fact, sometimes by not speaking out, theyre encouraging it. And the base keeps buying the stuff.
And its killing the base of the party. I mean, 26 percent favorability rating for the party right now. It ought to be telling them something. So, instead of attacking me or whoever speaks like I do, look in the mirror and realize, How are we going to win the next election?

So Colon Bowel sees no problem that all of Obastard’s records are sealed?
The only thing I agree with is that birtherism is nonsense.
Suspect that he’s auditioning to be msnbc’s second al sharpton.
When is this p.o.s. Powell going to go away?
Colin Powell looked into himself and asked: “m I American or Black?”
He not only decided that question needed to be asked (it doesn’t) he answered in the latter when he voted and now speacks 100% based on the latter.
Shut up Colin, you damn racist.
Wouldn’t expect him to call out his fellow democrats.
Someone needs to tell this racist idiot to leave the Republican party, that he is not welcome. Sick of these Obama Republican ass kissers.
Powel is just a deskjockey.
He did some stuff in combat but after that it was all deskjockey
Colon, just suck it.....go the hell away...you were never a Republican.
If Powell were honest he would change his political registration and stop pretending to be a Republican.
If Republicans had any testicles, they’d kick this rat bastard out of the party!
With so much of his bumping gums lately, I wonder what affirmative action position he is looking to fill in this administration.
I love it when commie libs worry about the future of the GOP. Lighten up Colin.
Colonel/General Powell is now spokesman for the Republican party. I don’t know if he was elected or appointed but it really is a good thing. Now y’all can see what they really think of you.
Mr. Powell’s comments from a week ago didn’t make much of a splash. He’s trying again.
I’d comment, but in Colon Bowel’s opinion I’m a wasssist since I do not endorse the Soetero Regime’s failings, and worse - I’m a white guy.
Bush stole the election.
Bush is a crackhead.
Bush is a draft dodger.
For twelve years, Colon. Twelve years of Alinsky-ite demonizing. And you said nothing.
