What is wrong with the Republican Party – ‘Colin Powell Slams ‘Idiot Presentations’ by Some Republicans, Urges GOP Leaders to ‘Speak Out’

colin powell

“Republicans have to stop buying into things that demonize the president. I mean, why aren’t 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 I’ve been talking about where these idiot presentations continue to be made and you don’t see the senior leadership of the party say, ‘No, that’s wrong.’ In fact, sometimes by not speaking out, they’re encouraging it. And the base keeps buying the stuff”.

“And it’s 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?”

    Powell is a man I’ve long admired, and the Republican will be silly not to listen to his message.

    • My money is on the Republicans being silly.
      He, Powell, is one of the people I’d like to see run in 2016.
      Either party.

      • Barneysday on said:

        Powell will never run. He firmly believes that it is not worth the effort to put his family through all the pettiness and intrusions that is today’s elections. He famously spoke of this a few years back.

        He’s still at the top of my list of admirable Americans.

      • Thanks for jogging my memory on that.
        It’s or Nation’s loss.
