Limbaugh Responds to Colin Powell

Rush responds to Colin Powell's view that the GOP should toss Rush Limbaugh overboard, even though Rush has never run for office and is a Republican only when they agree with his conservatism.

Here is Colin Powell telling the Republican Party what to do after he voted for Obama! I know what really has Colin Powell upset, it's because I said his endorsement of Obama was about race, and I'm not supposed to say those things. These things are supposed to go unsaid. The Republican Party nominated Powell's perfect candidate.

All these moderates, Bill Weld, all these moderates that crossed the aisle and voted for Obama, they got their ideal candidate, and they got their ideal campaign in McCain. Once McCain was nominated as the Republican candidate, largely by independents and Democrats voting in Republican primaries, Colin Powell waited 'til the last minute, when it would do the most damage to McCain and the Republicans and endorsed Obama.

So if we try to understand Powell's thinking, which is difficult since it's incoherent, we should have all voted for McCain in the primaries, and once he was nominated, we should have voted for Obama for president. That's what we should have all done, if you listen to what Powell said on CNN yesterday.

Rush is exactly right. Powell is not, and never has been, a Republican. He was never a good Secretary of State. He threw his own President under the bus on Iraq. He then nearly committed a crime by withholding information that his subordinate was the real 'leaker' in the Valerie Plame nonsense. And now somehow Colin Powell is supposed to be the spokesman for the Republican Party? (Btw, the Republicans have lost the last 2 elections precisely because they refused to listen to conservative leaders and instead tried to be Democrat-lite.)
