Unless you are Colin Powell. Speaking last night, Powell said,
"Rush Limbaugh says, 'Get out of the Republican Party.' Dick Cheney says, 'He's already out.' I may be out of their version of the Republican Party, but there's another version of the Republican Party waiting to emerge once again," Powell told the crowd.I hate to tell Colin Powell, but "their version" of the party is the actual Republican party. I guess the imaginary version "waiting to emerge" is the one where prominent party members endorse liberal Democrats for president, and then support them over their own party.
Colin Powell planted a knife the back of the GOP by publicly throwing his support behind Barack Obama. Yet somehow Cheney and Limbaugh are the bad guys for pointing that out. And it wasn't just during the election. Here was Powell referring to the president,
Obama [is]"a transformational figure" who "brings a fresh set of eyes, a fresh set of ideas" at a time the nation urgently needs them. "He has met the standard of being president," he said.Yeah, Powell really sounds like a Republican doesn't he? Here's a little tip for the general. If you want to been seen as a Republican, how about working within the party, supporting GOP policies, and dropping the sycophantic Obama worship? The reason other Republicans no longer see you as a Republican, is because you voluntarily abandoned the party at its worst hour to join the other side.
