In an interview with Fareed Zakaria, to be aired Sunday on CNN, Colin Powell goes through his litany of grievances against the GOP. “I think the party has to stop shouting at the world and at the country,” Powell said. “I think that the party has to take a hard look at itself, and I’ve talked to a number of leaders in recent weeks and they understand that.” He went on to say that the GOP must listen to minority groups “and not just try to influence them [with] Republican principles and dogma.”
He also opined on conservative radio talk show hosts, saying that they appeal to “our lesser instincts,” and said that Republicans lost in November because they used “polarization for political advantage.”
What happened to you Colin Powell? Once upon a time, you were a real leader…strong and smart. You gave the impression that you were a man of unwavering principles. You never were much of a conservative, but I had respect for you. Then you endorsed Barack Obama. You betrayed your president and your party. But you’re not done with the backstabbing are you? Apparently you’re still angry about your years in the Bush administration.
You have a really bad attitude, Colin, and you’re hurting your own reputation more than anything else. Don’t get sucked in by the media adoration. They’ll turn on you in a New York minute. Don’t take my word for it. Just ask your fellow RINO, John McCain.
