Affirmative Action Colin Powell Obama's Guy Mouths Off On "Meet The Press" With His Idiot Cliches

Below is what he said about Obama not being a Muslim that you can see on the video.

POWELL: "I would tell my fellow Americans...Think carefully about some of the stuff coming across the blogs and airwaves, let's make a couple of points, one the President was born in the United States of America, let's get rid of that one and go to the birther thing, let's attack him on policy, not nonsense. Next he is a Christian, he is not a Muslim, 20% of people say he is a Muslim. 80% apparently did not believe he's a Muslim.

GREGORY: "31% of Republicans say he's Muslim"

POWELL: "Well, surprise, surprise but I bet you a dollar if the unemployment rate wasn't 9.6, but was down to 4%, then you would find only 5% would think he's Muslim"

He also said this......................

On this same show Meet the Press: Powell said the tea party activists who are driving the opposition against Obama were part of a movement, but they do not yet offer the kind of agenda that makes them a party. They have to offer more than slogans, he said.

"This movement doesn't become a real force until it's— until it starts to talk to the issues," Powell said. "I want to cut spending. I want to have lower taxes. But how do you do that? You can't just have slogans. You can't just have catchy phrases. You have to have an agenda."

And this...............

Powell: Illegals Work on My House

FOX News

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell says illegal immigrants do essential work in the U.S. and he has firsthand knowledge of that -- because they fix his house.

Powell, urged his party Sunday to support immigration generally because it is "what's keeping this country's lifeblood moving forward."
In an interview with NBC's "Meet the Press," he said a path to legal status should be offered to illegal immigrants in the U.S. because they "are doing things we need done in this country."
He added: "They're all over my house, doing things whenever I call for repairs, and I'm sure you've seen them at your house. We've got to find a way to bring these people out of the darkness and give them some kind of status."

Powell also said "fringe" elements on the right are taking a low road when they label Obama a foreign-born Muslim and peddle other false theories about non-American influences on the president's character. Obama was born in the U.S. and is Christian.

"Let's attack him on policy, not nonsense," he said.
And he said the tea party may not become an enduring force unless it moves beyond slogans and promotes an agenda that people "can see, touch and actually believe in." It's not enough, he said, to call for goals that most Americans support, such as controlled federal spending and adherence to the Constitution.

The former secretary of state said he still sees Obama as a transformational figure, if one who has lost some of his ability to connect with people.

Wild Thing's comment........

Powell: the angry black man who only got anywhere and only has a forum because of affirmative action.

We all know who had the real moxie as General for the 1st Gulf War and that was General Norman Schwarzkopf.

The Tea Party hasn't formed a third party because most people recognize the RATS win that way.

Powell makes it clear once again where his loyalties lie and they are NOT with conservatives and we know from the past nor with Israel.

Don’t even tell us a damn thing Comrade Powell! Just continue being an Afro-centric Marxist boot-licker until you fade into oblivion.

Regarding his only hiring ILLEGALS , Gee, Powell, you couldn’t find any Americans or Legal residents to do the work? More likely you didn’t want to pay an American or legal resident.

Say What ? Illegal Immigration is moving the country forward, Drug Cartels, kidknapping, murder yeah great force motivator that one is.

These people are so desparate. Now either powell is part of the problem but I don't see him as part of the solution. I wonder what Colonel West would say to these comments.

Obama is a Muslim Illegal.

I saw him yesterday on TV when he said he hired illegals to work on his house. He tried to insinuate that Gregory and everybody else does it too. Funny when some people are doing wrong, they try to include everybody else in their sin.

Powell still has an embillical cord tied to inside the Washington beltway. He has been an insider for decades and knows nothing about the real America. Yes, he is a product of affirmative action.

Not a dimes worth of difference between a democrat and a republican.

Colon Powell represents everything that's wrong with the Republican Party.

Thanks everyone.

I agree Powell represents the things that are wrong with the Rep. party. He still calls himself a moderate Rep. and then he votes and promotes Obama and his agenda. How wacked out is that and even in the interview no one questions his being more of a dem then a republican.
