Oh goody, let’s hear another RINO bash Conservatives

Colin Powell makes an ass of himself in this interview with David Gregory. Sorry, it is true. Powell was a man I admired for a long time, but frankly, Powell is simply parroting the talking points of the Left these days. He says the GOP has to “change”. Change to what? A carbon copy of the Democrats?  Video is at The Daily Caller here is part of the transcript

“I think the Republican Party right now is having an identity problem,” Powell said. “And I’m still a Republican. … In recent years, there’s been a significant shift to the right, and we have seen what that shift has produced: two losing presidential campaigns. I think what the Republican Party needs to do now is take a very hard look at itself and understand that the country has changed. The country is changing demographically. And if the Republican Party does not change along with that demographic, they’re going to be in trouble.”

I would argue that we need better messengers to take the message of Conservatism to those groups  rather than trying to sell them the same identity politics the Democrats have been selling them.

The GOP showed its “dark vein of intolerance,” Powell said, in a variety of unhelpful and self-defeating ways in the most recent presidential campaign.

“You can’t go around saying we don’t want to have a solid immigration policy, [or that] we’re going to dismiss the 47 percent, [or that] we are going to make it hard for these minorities to vote, as they did in the last election,” Powell said. “What did that produce? The court struck most of that down, and most importantly, it caused people to turn out and stand in line, because these Republicans were trying to keep us from voting.”

 Where does Powell get that the GOP tried to make it harder for minorities to vote? What, showing ID is RAAAAACIST to Powell? Frankly this race baiting has to stop, especially from individuals that ARE smart enough to know better!

“There’s also a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party” he continued. “What I do mean by that? What I mean by that is they still sort of look down on minorities. How can I evidence that? When I see a former governor say that the president is ‘shucking and jiving,’ that’s a racial-era slave term. When I see another former governor — after the president’s first debate, where he didn’t do very well — saying that the president was lazy. … And then there’s a third word that goes along with it: birther, the whole birther movement. Why do senior Republican leaders tolerate this kind of discussion within the party?”

Good grief! Here we go any criticism of Obama is RAAAAACISM! Perhaps Mr. Powell could enlighten us as to why calling a debate performance that was, well LAZY, lazy is racist? Frankly, I think Mr. Powell’s main issue is that he is as addicted to the Identity Politics and race baiting as the next Liberal is.

Let us sum up Powell’s recipe for Republican resurgence.

1-Stop pushing for border security

2-Stop calling for lowers taxes

3- Do not expect minorities to respond well to Conservative ideals

4 Stop trying to stop voter fraud

5-Never, ever, under any circumstance dare criticize Obama

In short, it would seem that Powell wants a new Republican Party, so he can go vote republican without and still be a Liberal at heart!

 

Ah yes, Ann Coulter lets her mouth override her brain

Ann is hopelessly devoted to Mr. Romneycare, and does not mind taking cheap shots at the Tea Party apparently. What a hack! And, today’s Daley Douchebag!

Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion

Ann Coulter already told us that Tea Partiers opposed to Mitt Romney were just a bunch of “birthers” (emphasis mine):

Pemmaraju pressed Coulter on Romney’s conservatism, adding that the Tea Party has resisted him strongly, an indication he may not be as conservative as she thinks. Coulter replied that the Tea Party was “wrong about this” because “they’re looking at who is going to go around bombastically demanding to see Obama’s birth certificate or calling him a Kenyan,” instead of substance. She added that “Rick Santorum and [Rick] Perry are very bad on illegal immigration” despite being considered more conservative.

Bill quick at Daily Pundit sums up my feelings pretty well.

And Coulter is just another fellating tool of a hack propagandist drowning in the tank for a shit sandwich named Mittens Romneycare.

What can I add to that? Nothing!

Your Blog question of the Day

Comes from Don Surber

I am no birther. All my bad jokes about a Hawaiian birth certificate aside, I fully believe Barack Obama was born in the USA. The question now is whether he still lives here.

Looking at his economic policies as president, I get the feeling he is living in some other nation where the government’s powers are unrestricted by a constitution and where all the people look to the fearless leader for guidance on all things economic.

Maybe he lives in Pyongyang.

First there is his proposed budget for the next year beginning October 1. It is still a trillion dollars larger than any other presidential budget proposal.

Obama wants the power to spend $12,000 for every man, woman, child and transgendered being in the United States over the next year beginning October 1. Each.

Read it all, great points made by Don. I have often said if Obama is, as his fans say, a “Constitutional scholar”, I am not sure what Constitution he has studied. Clearly it is not ours
