#1 On race, Powell was also critical of his party's official line, saying that he believes the GOP has been lax in fighting race-based scaremongering
Scaremonger, can't find anything scream RACIST.

#2 That's it! Colin Powell is OUT of the club!

#3 We all knew Powell was a democrat party hack in disguise.

#4 Powell considers the access to Saudi cash he got through his work at State -- and the good graces of the press -- more important than the truth.

#5 Whatever happened to:
"Pottery house rules, if you break it - you buy it"
Colin Powell before the invasion of Iraq.

#6 I've got to quit watching/reading news. I'm losing people I once respected by about a dozen a week. I met general Powell once. I hate to add him to my shit list.

#7 That's right, general. Anytime somebody disagrees with you, no need to bother with logic, just whip out that there race card.

#8 I'd say if you "met general powell once" but don't know which list he belongs on, you don't watch / read enough of the correct news outlets...

#9 I stil say that the groundowrk is being laid for Powell to replace either VPOTUS Joe
"Grandpa/Gaffe" Biden or SecState Hillary.
Iff SHTF this year as per the US-World Econ, US Debt, + Foreign Policy/Affairs, the blame will fall on the Bammer + Admin which in turn means America = Amerika may NOT see another African-American POTUS [other Minority?] for a long long L-O-N-G LLLOOONNNGG TIME. THE TIME IS NOW, I.E. BEFORE THE END OF THE BAMMER'S SECOND TERM 2013 -JAN. 2013, FOR A FIRST-TIME-IN-HISTOIRE' POTUS ADMIN WHERE THE TOP POSITIONS OF ADMIN POWER = EXECUTIVE BRANCH ARE HELD BY AFRICAN-AMERICANS OR "PERSONS OF COLOR".
Iff SHTF wid Rising China in NE Asia over the Sino-Nippon disputed Senkakus/Diaoyu Islands, IMO THE BAMMER MUST PREVAIL LIKE JFK + NIXON BACK IN 1962 + 1973 MISSLE CRISES, + FORCE CHINA TO BACK DOWN VEE JAPAN. ANY LESS WOULD BE INTERPRETED AS DE FACTO FAILURE ON THE PART OF HIS ADMIN + MINORITY AMERICANS.

#10 I guess that's what irrelevant old impotent farts do to get attention. Benghazi "could've happened to anyone." yea, and nothing is being done about it.
