Limbaugh: Where are the inexperienced, white liberals Powell has endorsed?

Rush Limbaugh said Colin Powell's decision to get behind Barack Obama appeared to be very much tied to Obama's status as the first African-American with a chance to become president.

"Secretary Powell says his endorsement is not about race," Limbaugh wrote in an e-mail. "OK, fine. I am now researching his past endorsements to see if I can find all the inexperienced, very liberal, white candidates he has endorsed. I'll let you know what I come up with."

As for Powell's statement of concern this morning about the sort of Supreme Court justices a President McCain might appoint, Limbaugh wrote: "I was also unaware of his dislike for John Roberts, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Anthony Kennedy and Antonin Scalia. I guess he also regrets Reagan and Bush making him a four-star [general] and secretary of state and appointing his son to head the FCC. Yes, let's hear it for transformational figures."

Nah, let the man talk.

It further alienates moderates and other voters who are disgusted with the strategy and tactics of the GOP (and the Democratic party, who are not without their lunatic fringe).

It just goes to show you that the mentality is now firmly - "What have you done for me lately?" and "Winning is all that matters."

While I'm not a huge fan of Mr. Limbaugh's; I'd like to see the list of all the other Inexperienced, White, Liberal-Socialists that Powell has endorsed. If there aren't any I'd suggest that any supposition that Powell's endorsement of Obama is about nothing more than race, which in my mind takes him out of the realm of people whose opinions I'd listen to on ANY issue.

Damn, MSF.

I really didn't expect that from you.

Show me another election where any candidate has been so erratic and made such an obvious mistake in his VP pick and maybe you'll have some ground to stand on.

Otherwise it just sounds ignorant.

I think its just that he thinks a liberal Obama is the lesser of two evils. Sad, especially when there are multiple third party candidates. :(

JMU,

So far as I'm concerned a Political Party is like an army. Once you're on one side there is nothing positive to be said about the other side. They are the ENEMY. The only mercy you wish upon them is a quick, brutal death (in a political sense). Regardless of whether that individual on the other side is a direct family member or someone you've never even heard of. That's why I'm NOT a member of a political party.

As I said in another thread on this topic this morning, Powell should be expelled from the Republican party ASAP. Any credentials he has with the Republican Party as a member, or as a friend should be disavowed. If he wants to support the Democratic Party candidate, let him become a Democrat.

Even more interesting when you realize that his own party's candidate is a decorated United States Army veteran and former Prisoner of War. Very interesting way to treat one of your "Brothers in Arms".

What a crock of ****.

The only true "allegiance" you should have is to your country. You should vote for the person you feel is the best candidate to run the country regardless of party affiliation - which is why I respect McCain supporters who genuinely feel that way. The idea you propose sounds an awful lot like this:

So, Bush should have been expelled for being (at least at the outset) a bipartisan POTUS?

Furthermore, you're not taking into account several things. First, that Powell IIRC simply hasn't endorsed any political candidates I don't think. Second, what about that whole "presumed innocence" thing we were all going back and forth about a few weeks ago? Finally, Powell provided very valid reasons for his endorsement which aligns him quite well with where he's been all along-squarely positioned at the political center.

As the GOP drifts ever further towards the right, it's getting to be a place I don't like so much anymore. If they get too much further to the right, they'll be among MSF and Mussolini. Not good company at all. :(

You're the second person to have suggested that today, JMU.

What I have discussed is how I feel these parties SHOULD be run.... and in terms of the Democratic Party how things HAVE been run in the past. If you're going to claim to be a member of an organization you should be supporting that organization 100% or you should be leaving it.

Now also realize this.... I believe that ALL political parties should be abolished and banned for exactly that reason. I've commented on that numerous times around here.

Yse, in my mind if I were a member of the Republican Party I would have been calling for Bush's removal from the party for MANY reasons over the last eight years.

I though that Gen. Powell HAS now endorsed Senator Obama. I saw at least two links this morning to that effect. Also, have you ever had any doubt that my mind works on a presumption of GUILT rather than innocence? Lastly, if he's in the center politically he should never have been allowed to join the Republican (or Democratic) Party to begin with, since neither of them is a Centrist organization.

As the GOP drifts ever further towards the right, it's getting to be a place I don't like so much anymore. If they get too much further to the right, they'll be among MSF and Mussolini. Not good company at all. :(

If they actually START moving Right at some point in time maybe I'll actually think about joining them. Until then, I'll remain an independent.

I meant prior to his endoresement of Obama. I should have made that more clear.

...but other GOP'ers will have jumped ship long before they'd ever get far enough right to satisfy you. That's what being on the political margins does.

That's fine. I like it out here in the margins. It's one of the few places where people actually believe what they say (otherwise they wouldn't be here) and ACT on it as well.
