Colin Powell was George Bush’s Secretary of State. He also endorsed Barack Obama for President four years ago. In other words, he is your typical RINO.
And this will come as a big shock he does not like the Tea Party.
From The Hill:
Former Bush administration Secretary of State Colin Powell on Sunday dismissed chances for a Tea Party candidate to win the presidential election, criticizing the hard-line stance taken by the majority of the grassroots movement and advocated by their favored political candidates. "The Tea Party point of view of 'no compromise whatsoever' is not a point of view that will eventually produce a presidential candidate who will win," he said on ABC's "This Week With Christiane Amanpour." Powell said taking the no-compromise position isn't helping get things done in Washington, and called on members of Congress to "come back to the center to compromise" in order to see progress. "Compromise is how this country was founded," he said, offering as an example the issue of slavery. "Can you imagine more difficult compromises today?" he asked. "We have a Congress now that can't even pass an appropriations bill." Powell slammed the tone on Capitol Hill, which he called "very tense." "Republicans and Democrats are focusing more and more on their extreme left and extreme right," he said. "Unless two people in disagreement with each other don't find a way to reach out to one another and make compromises, you don't get a consensus that allows you to move forward."
Our country was founded on compromise? Give me a break. Powell is an idiot.
Our country was founded on the principles of freedom and liberty. Our country was founded by men and women who refused to compromise with tyranny.
Powell believes that conservatives should just surrender to what the liberals want. There is a reason why no one cares what Colin Powell thinks.
Of course, he is a staple of the drive by media, so there can be another Republican on the news, trashing the Tea Party.
People like Colin Powell are the problem. Compromise is the problem. Instead of standing up for Americans, the politicians in Washington have been compromising.
The problem is we have had too many people like Colin Powell in Washington and not nearly enough people who support the Tea Party.
HOW IS A COMPROMISE BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL A STEP FORWARD?
Count me as one who doesn't give a tinker's dam what Colin Powell thinks.
That makes two of us!
7!! Let's hope he wasn't that dumb when he was in office.
Make the EIGHT!
He endorsed Obama. Enough said! FAIL!
