Colin Powell Uses Code Words to Describe Republican Party

Several years ago, I purchased Colin Powell's biography as he was a hero of mine during and a few years after the Gulf War. His was a story of sacrifice, making due with what he had, overcoming some pretty tough odds, and showing unbelievable character. However, the recent past has erased all of my trust and hopes in his character and he has become just one more political idealogue, arrogant and out of touch with reality. Needless to say his book was great kindling in my fireplace a few years ago.

Good for you! Powell is the worst kind of back-stabbing sellout traitor. A disgrace to the Army and this country.

Good for you. I don't blame you one bit.

It doesn't surprise me that he turned the way that he did. His true self, racism and ideology came out a few years ago particularily since the fraudulent election of The Hussein. He was given his rank because he is what I call a PC military officer and that way the military would not be accused of being racist when he was in the lower ranks.

He earned his rank by consistently being among the best or the best in every single job he held. Same with every other Officer that makes General. Once you make General, and certainly above the two star rank (MG), the more political nature becomes important.

How about, in Colin Powell's case, the more back-stabbing, lying, race-baiting, sellout, disgrace to the Army and his country, nature?

Yesterday former Secretary of State Colin Powell told illegal magazine toter and Meet the Press host David Gregory that the Republican Party is having an "identity crisis" and said there is a "dark vein of intolerance" inside the GOP. He accused leaders in the Party of using "code words" to put down minorities as if his own "dark vein" reference wasn't code for something. He predictably slammed Sarah Palin and portrayed birthers as an influentail sector of the Republican Party (they're not).

On the birther thing, I'd like to remind...
