colin powell is so right, but too bad them evil son bitches refuse to swallow their pride and seperate themselves from ultra neo-conservative extremists. as long as they continue to associate with birthers, secessionists, tea baggers, people who believe something as evil as rape is a blessing from god, people who believe slavery was gods plan for african americans, and not reaching out to minorities, they will continue to lose over and over and over and over and over and over and over again!!!!!

Colin Powell to GOP – Stop This ‘Birther Nonsense’ And Voter Suppression

I am an unapologetic member of the Christian Left, and have spent a lot of time working with “the least of these” and disadvantaged and oppressed populations. I’m passionate about their struggles. To stay on top of topics I discuss, subscribe to my public updates on Facebook, follow me on Twitter, or connect with me via LinkedIn. I also have a grossly neglected blogFind me somewhere and let’s discuss stuff.

 

 

Yikes. I wonder what’s going through GOP minds as they continue to be slammed by the overall well respected former Secretary of State Colin Powell? Last week, Powell, who served in high-profile roles during the Reagan administration and both Bush administrations, toldMeet the Press:

“There is also a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party….They look down on minorities…When I see a former governor say that the president is shucking and jiving. That is a racial era slave term. When I see another former governor – says that the president was lazy. It may not mean anything to most Americans. But to those of us who are African-Americans, the second word is shiftless and then there is a third word that goes along with it.” (Source)

 

 

He then proceeded to defend Hillary Clinton against right-wing smears:

“Well, you can’t keep everything from happening. Benghazi was a very, very difficult one and a difficult situation and maybe they shouldn’t have been there in the first place. And I think that we have had a good review of that by Ambassador Pickering and Admiral Mullen and I don’t know whether the Congress in their examination of Mrs. Clinton will find something that they find distasteful. But I don’t think it’s a blot on her record.” (Source)

 

Powell even went as far as to imply that Clinton would make a good president:

”I think she’d be good at whatever she does, whether she is interested in it or not, I will let her opine on that.”

 

 

And well, of course, he endorsed President Obama in 2008 and 2012, and the GOP is still (and will always be) sore about that.

 

 

So what is he up to this week? He’s chastising the GOP for not speaking out about the lunatics in their party and he’s advising them to loudly denounce the “birther nonsense” and “other things that demonize the president.” In an ABC News interview with Diane Sawyer and George Stephanopoulos, the four star general said:

“Republicans have to stop buying into things that demonize the president. I mean, why aren’t Republican leaders shouting out about all this birther nonsense and all these other things? They should speak out. This is the kind of intolerance that I’ve been talking about where these idiot presentations continue to be made and you don’t see the senior leadership of the party say, ‘No, that’s wrong.’ In fact, sometimes by not speaking out, they’re encouraging it. And the base keeps buying the stuff.

 

And it’s killing the base of the party. I mean, 26 percent favorability rating for the party right now. It ought to be telling them something. So, instead of attacking me or whoever speaks like I do, look in the mirror and realize, ‘How are we going to win the next election?”

 

 

Oh and one more thing. He accused them of voter suppression. Yes, he did.

“The Republican Party ought to be out there not restricting voting by voter ID, but saying we want everybody to vote,” he said. “It’s a party that has to stop saying, ‘We are going to appeal to you with new messages.’ You need policies — the country is becoming more minority.”

 

 

And he said the same thing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe show:

“Should we really have gone after reducing the turnout of voters in those places where we thought it would make a difference?” he asked. “The Republican Party should be a party that says, ‘We want everybody to vote,’ and make it easier for people to vote and give them a reason to vote for the party, and not to find ways to keep them from voting at all.” (Source)

Many conservatives are calling Powell a “RINO” (Republican In Name Only), but he maintains that he’s still a Republican. Why?

 

Will someone please tell the GOP that this man is trying to send them a message? He’s doing everything but parachuting into their little retreats and pulling them up by their shirt collars and saying “LISTEN”.

 

No, he’s not a RINO. He has no reason whatsoever to lie about being a Republican.

 

No, he didn’t endorse President Obama because he’s Black. He endorsed President Obama because the GOP keeps tossing up idiots as candidates. I’d bet a paycheck that if Hillary Clinton runs in 2016, he’ll be endorsing her as well.

 

Thank you  Ms  & Addiction Info.

POTUS Obama Takes His Case To The People Via Meet The Press (caucasian voters)

David Gregory’s exclusive Meet The Press interview with President Obama on the fiscal cliff talks and the president’s priorities for his second term.

President Barack Obama – Exclusive interview on NBC’s Meet the Press. Dec 30,2013

President Obama turned up on NBC’s “Meet the Press” for the first time since the passage of ObamaCare, and gave exactly the performance that every veteran Obama-watcher would have expected: A no nonsense explanation on the “fiscal cliff” drama.  “I’m not driven by some ideological agenda – I’m a pretty practical guy,” he explicitly stated, offering his past four years in office as evidence.

 

 

 

President Obama Blames GOP For Fiscal Cliff On ‘Meet The Press

 

 

By SAHIL KAPUR DECEMBER 30, 2012 for Talking Points Memo

 

Sahil Kapur is a congressional reporter for TPM. He previously covered politics and public policy for numerous publications including The Guardian and The Huffington Post. He can be reached at sahil [at] talkingpointsmemo.com.

 

President Obama appeared on NBC’s “Meet The Press” Sunday to ratchet up the pressure on Congress to act to avoid the fiscal cliff — and repeatedly blamed Republicans for the impending crisis in the event of failure.

 

“So far, at least, Congress has not been able to get this stuff done,” Obama said. “Not because Democrats in Congress don’t want to go ahead and cooperate, but because I think it’s been very hard for Speaker Boehner and Republican Leader McConnell to accept the fact that taxes on the wealthiest Americans should go up a little bit as part of an overall deficit reduction package.”

 

Although congressional leaders say discussions are ongoing, the prospects for a deal have diminished since Friday afternoon when Obama issued his ultimatum to Republicans. He again dared them to filibuster his middle class tax cut in the new Congress come Jan. 4 if they fail to reach a deal by then.

 

“At a certain point, if folks can’t say yes to good offers, then I also have an obligation to the American people to make sure that the entire burden of deficit reduction doesn’t fall on seniors who are relying on Medicare,” Obama said. “There is a basic fairness that is at stake in this whole thing. And they listened to an entire year’s debate about it. They made a clear decision about the approach they prefer.”

 

“It is very important for Republicans in Congress to be willing to say, ‘we understand we are not going to get 100 percent. We are willing to compromise in a serious way to solve problems as opposed to being worried about the next election.’ … The offers I have made are so fair that a lot of Democrats get mad at me,” he said, naming the entitlement cuts he has proposed, including Medicare cuts and Social Security cuts via “Chained CPI.”

The Year in Review: Joining Forces to Hire American Heroes

 

Colleen Curtis
By Colleen Curtis  December 30, 2012  The White House Blog

In August of 2011, President Obama challenged the private sector to hire or train 100,000 veterans and military spouses by the end of 2013. In August of this year, First Lady Michelle Obama visited Mayport Naval Station in Florida to announce that 2,000 American companies had stepped up to the challenge, and had already exceeded that goal, hiring 125,000 veterans and military spouses more than a year ahead of schedule.

 

In addition, those companies doubled down on their commitment to our troops and military families and made a new promise, a pledge to hire or train an additional 250,000 of our nation’s heroes, including 50,000 military spouses.

 

The First Lady reiterated her own challenge, encouraging states to pass legislation that reduces the financial and administrative strains that 100,000 military spouses incur from trying to get their state licenses or certification credentials to transfer from state to state as they move. When Mrs. Obama and Dr. Jill Biden made their pitch to governors in February of this year, only 11 states had legislation on the books supporting military spouse license portability.
In just six months the number of states with supportive measures in place more than doubled to 26 states, and the goal is that no military spouse will ever need to leave their profession behind when their family is transferred.
And as Mrs. Obama pointed out, hiring veterans is not just the right thing to do, it is a smart thing for businesses to do:
Make no mistake about it, you all have the talent, you’ve got the training and the experience to lead America’s economic comeback, and America’s businesses understand that. And that’s why they’ve stepped up so readily to answer this call.  That’s why they’re hiring folks like all of you every day all across this country.

“Doesn’t the President have to worry about everyone? Mitt Romney paid just 14.1% in taxes last year. He keeps millions in Bermuda and the Cayman Islands. He won’t release his tax returns before 2010. Maybe instead of attacking others on taxes. Romney should come clean on his.”

“Well, here’s what he said as Governor, outside a coal fired power plant.”

Newark Mayor Cory Booker Kissing Ass, I Mean Explains On His Support For President Obama


By Jueseppi B.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sunday on Meet The Press, a bastion of TeaTardedRepubliCANT Pseudo-Freudian Psycho-Sexual Secret-Whore Pro-caucasian Pro-Racist Anti-LGBT Anti-Feminist Reich Wing Party Members. Not the Meet The Press of the Tim Russet days. This was Mr. Booker’s words against POTUS Obama:

 

 

 

 

 

This was Mr. Booker’s attempt to have you and I better understand his throwing the President under the Mitt Romney Bain Capital Bus:

 

 

 

 

 

Now here is the video that really tells me where Mr. Booker and his support lies….yes lies and not lays……

 

 

 

 

 

Two questions: 1). At the end of this Christie/Booker video, why is Mitt Romney supposedly offering the Vic Presidency to Cory Booker, a Democrat?

2). Why would Booker allow himself to be sucked into throwing POTUS Obama under Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital Bus on Meet The Press?

 

If Mitt Romney uses his Bain Capital years as a basis for his ability to BE President Of The United States….then that Bain Capital times is fair game for the political campaign of his opposition.

 

Mr. Booker: When you throw the POTUS under the Mitt Romney Bain Capital Bus, you will get run over.
