#1 Where might we be today without Boosh and Colin's Iraq mess?

#2 Nice enough fellow, but not the sharpest hoe in the shed. He's simply joining the senior officer, never-Trump pile on.

#3 Well, since their plan is to never win, I guess we are OK.

#4 I think what we're seeing now, is (the most) massive protest movement I have ever seen in my life,

You weren't around in '68?

#5 He might have been a young officer learning the art of sucking up and butt kissing and didn't even notice 1968.

#7 please cite examples, actions and the part in the Constitution that it goes against - should be the follow up question to any statement like this.

so infuriating that 'journalists' can never ask questions when they aren't interested in the answer

#8 But CNN says The Constitution is bad, so Trump is doing a good thing or we need our five minutes of lame?

#9 Um, Collie, baby (can I call you Collie?) Try to remember a little post-revolutionary war American history. Shay's Rebellion? The Whiskey Rebellion? There is nothing unconstitutional about putting down rebellions, even if some of the rioters share the same skin tones with you.

#10 The Constitution is a living, breathing document.

Therefore, it is actually impossible to ever violate it.

#2 Nice enough fellow,

I assume this is facetious; nice fellows don't consistently engage in the self-serving backstabbing that General Umbrella Drink does.

#11 Colin Powell: I’m Voting For Biden. Tom Cotton: Big Deal. You Haven’t Voted GOP In 16 Years.

Anyone has any positive example of affirmative action - any example?

#12 I'm starting to see that a lot of folks haven't actually read the Constitution despite swearing an oath to protect it.

I'm also starting to think that General Casey in Mars attacks was a dead-on parody of Powell.

#13 Colin Powell: I’m Voting For Biden.

Yeah. He voted for Baraq too. We know he fully supports Affirmative Action in the military as well as in civilian life. And we know that Bush made a lot of mistakes too.

#14 You weren't around in '68?

'68 through '72 'protests' were a lot more visible and many times more violent.

Please review the entities 'SDS', 'Weathermen' and 'Black Panthers'. Eight paragraphs for each group should be sufficient.

Also, for a real treat, look up protests in Peru and/or South Korea. Those folks really get into it.

#15 Didn't all the generals line up to bash Trump a couple of years ago?

Anybody listen then?

#16 CNN, et al., will say the US Constitution is "bad" unless it's to there advantage/benefit.

#17 Should all the generals be surrounding him and throwing rose pedals beneath his feet? I'm starting to think Trump isn't a dictator after all.

#18 Abe "Habeas Corpus" Lincoln was a dictator. President Trump doesn't come close by a long shot. But, it's just another label the Dems/Left use when they can't argue successfully against him.
