The mainstream media loves having the Republican Party’s resident Democrat Colin Powell on as a guest, because he says everything they love to hear. Powell didn’t disappoint this morning:

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell appeared on NBC’s Meet the Press Sunday and had some strong words for his fellow GOP members: “The Republican party needs to take a very hard look at itself and understand that the country has changed.” Powell criticized the GOP of today for everything from their views on climate change to taxes. Most importantly? The party has a “dark vein of intolerance” running through it and “if they don’t change” along with America’s changing demographics, “they are going to be in trouble.”

Host David Gregory asked Powell why he was still a Republican and he noted that it was the way he was “raised,” but that “the Republican party right now is having an identity problem.”

The GOP “still looks down on minorities,” Powell said. He slammed Sarah Palin‘s “shuck and jive” comments from last year about President Obama and criticized Republican’s use of the word “lazy” to describe the president.

The GOP only represents the far right-wing of the political spectrum? The Republican presidential nominee was the man the left credits with providing the model and inspiration for Obamacare, for cryin’ out loud!

Has Powell forgotten the vile, demeaning and hateful things the left called him (as well as Condi Rice) when he served under Bush? If Powell wants to see a party looking down on minorities, he should take notice of how the left treats minorities who dare stray from the Democrat plantation.

The MSM doesn’t need Cialis as long as they have “Republicans” like this to interview (all real Republicans endorsed Obama, didn’t they?):

    Does anyone think Col. Powell would have been considered for SoS in any Dem. Admin. ?

  2. Marshall_Will on January 13th, 2013 9:42 pm

    Ha..! You making Marshall LAUGH.

    Even without having caught a lick of news today, I thought about this narrative propping device. Absolutely AGOG at what Dim's have unlashed upon the nation, they'll instead spin the focus and oddly at the same time BLAME of toe GOP for "having allowed this to have happened what with all their 'intolerance' and whatnot!?"

    These post-fraud comments were to be expected on the 8th of November, we'd have expected that! Here we are now 3 mos. later pressed into apology for things we never said or DID? So um… if O'Drama goes into OverReach OverDRIVE ( and spikes payroll taxes on us ALL and hammers away at the 2nd Amend. we have only OURSELVES to blame..! )

    I just realized something last week…

    His second term hasn't even started yet.

    The GOP “still looks down on minorities,” Powell said.

    Translation = Conservatives do not agree with me and President Obama; therefore they are racists.

  5. Truesoldier__ on January 14th, 2013 2:10 pm

    Yes I do. They would have loved to have any politician claiming to be a Republican in the position of SoS when Benghazi happened. It would have been far easier to paint them as a "right wing extremists" whose policies at State were undermining Obama's "goodwill tour" (i.e. the apology tour) which directly lead to the attacks on Benghazi. And just to show how serious they are they would prosecute the "Republican" SoS and he would now be sitting in a cell with the YouTube video maker.

    Of course this is a co-ordinated effort by Democrats in Republican titles to blast the GOP and Conservatives. While Colin Powell was saying what he said, Joe Scarbourough was riping on Drudge, Hanity and Levin while defending Powell:

  7. Truesoldier__ on January 14th, 2013 2:16 pm

    And in other news…..Team Obama is trying to up Biden's "street cred" for a 2016 run:

  8. Truesoldier__ on January 14th, 2013 3:13 pm

    I guess Obama didn't want to be outdone by Biden when it comes to gun metaphors:

    "I'm happy to have that conversation," he said of future deficit-reduction talks. "What I will not do is have that negotiation with a gun at the head of the American people."

    He also used the press conference to push for more gun control laws……

    I'd like to know what happened to the Colin Powell that gave the speech at the 1996 GOP Convention titled "Why I'm a Republican".
    That guy has nothing in common with this guy.

  10. jeffythequick on January 14th, 2013 4:19 pm

    Was he bragging about being the most conservative person in his workplace, akin to a pile of poop bragging about smelling the best at the landfill?

  11. Truesoldier__ on January 14th, 2013 4:23 pm

    Pretty much that along with I know what the Republican party needs to do to win elections…be more like the Democrats.

  12. jeffythequick on January 14th, 2013 5:21 pm

    Yeah, when Romney's camp was harassing his opponent's campaign (remember Axelrod getting harassed, and the bus honking it's horn? Those were the good times in that campaign) it was a good thing.

    Then, he decided to play it safe. Prevent defense.

    For everyone that runs for president, hear this:

    It's your last election, so give it all you've got. People will respect someone that goes down swinging over the person that holds it in, and hopes that the pummeling will stop after the election.

    It will, if you lose, so buck up.

    Now, it looks like I'll be supporting Rand Paul in 2016, but it better be a choice of RP, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Tim Scott, Bobby Jindal, Michele Bachman, and whoever the nominee is better go after Biden like he did untoward things to his children.

  13. Truesoldier__ on January 14th, 2013 5:47 pm

    Well what do you expect. Romney's campaign advisors were like the Colin Powell's and the Joe Scarbouroughs of the GOP. You didn't think they would advise him to do anything that might help him win….that would have been racist.

  14. Granny55 on January 14th, 2013 11:22 pm

    Because he likes playing Pin the Tail on the Donkey more than sticking to his supposed principles from 1996. He decided to advance his career on the coat tails of the Republicans by pretending to be an R and when the opportunity presented itself he decided that Condi Rice was a traitor to her country and aligned himself with the "Huh-One" because of the color of his skin – not the content of this character.

    I am a huge fan and supporter of Clarence Thomas, Thomas Sowell, Walter E. Williams, Allen West, Star Parker, Herman Cain and JC Watts. Colin Powell does not top my list of Americans who even come close to those I admire. I guess I must be raaaaaaccccccisssssstttttt…..

  15. Granny55 on January 14th, 2013 11:25 pm

    And I see he made those comments to the DC gun law guffaw – David Gregory. Hahahahahahhahahah….. By the way PTB posters…..this newly divorced Granny has a new boyfirend!!!! Yipppeeeee His name is Sig Sauer P229. Shiny, sleek and loud and I love holding hands with him!!!!

    I'm not getting how it's racist for a white person to use the term "shuck and jive" when it is a term coined by black people to describe their own behavior. Powell also linked the term to slavery, yet it seems the first known use of this term was after slavery was abolished. Just a bunch of race card BS. Meanwhile, plenty of Democrats and liberals are labeling any black person who doesn't fall in line with their ideals an Uncle Tom or a minstrel. That's ok, though, because it's true, and the truth always prevails. Am I right?!?

  17. Obama bin Biden on January 16th, 2013 2:56 am

    I always thought Powell's intelligence was exaggerated.

  18. SignPainterGuy on January 16th, 2013 5:25 am

    It ISN`T racist in fact; racist is just a convenient charge to throw at us to keep us on the defensive, to keep them in control of the narrative. They know that we don`t like to be called names and name-calling is one of their primary tactics.

    Recognize it for what it is, just a cheap shot !
