Limbaugh Shows How Absurd LIBERAL Colin Powell Has Become

Rush Limbaugh resigned as the head of the GOP today and appointed Colin Powell as the new head of the Republican party. Rush's action demonstrated the absurdity of claiming he was the head of the Republican party to begin with.

Powell to Rush, Cheney: Room for me among 'emerging' Republican Party

Colin Powell issued a sharp rebuke Tuesday night to Rush Limbaugh and Dick Cheney for trying to exclude him from the backbiting Republican Party.

Before some 1,500 business leaders in Boston, as well as Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and wife Gisele Bundchen, the retired general and former secretary of state spoke openly of the dispute roiling the Grand Old Party after election setbacks and polls putting its popularity at roughly one of five Americans.

"Rush Limbaugh says, 'Get out of the Republican Party.' Dick Cheney says, 'He's already out.' I may be out of their version of the Republican Party, but there's another version of the Republican Party waiting to emerge once again," Powell told the crowd.

Limbaugh hit back at Powell on his radio show yesterday .

Transcript from Rush Limbaugh Show:

"The version of the party that he's waiting to emerge is not the Reagan wing of the party. Does Powell have the pulse of the Republican Party, folks? He's for more spending. He's for higher taxes. He's against raising the social issues. He's for affirmative action. He's for amnesty for illegals. He endorsed Obama.
"And now there's an agenda -- an emerging agenda -- that he's waiting for for the Republican Party? The only thing emerging here is Colin Powell's ego. Colin Powell represents the stale, the old, the worn-out GOP that never won anything. The party of Gerald Ford, Nelson Rockefeller, Bill Scranton, Arnold Schwarzenegger and those types of people. Has anybody heard Colin Powell say a single word against Obama's radicalism -- or Pelosi or Reid, for that matter? Maybe he has but his fawning media sure hasn't reported if he has said it."

Last November's election, Powell delivered his prized endorsement to President Obama, giving him a major last-month boost.

Powell, who was talked about as a presidential candidate himself over the year, called Obama "a transformational figure" who "brings a fresh set of eyes, a fresh set of ideas" at a time the nation urgently needs them. "He has met the standard of being president," he said.
The most recent tiff started earlier this month when Powell told a group of corporate executives that “the Republican Party is in deep trouble” and blamed Limbaugh, saying he “diminishes the party” and corrupts our public life with “a kind of nastiness that we would be better to do without.”

Limbaugh Responds to RINO/Liberal Powell

“I don’t care what Colin Powell says,” Limbaugh responded soon after. “This kind of stuff is said about me three times a day … and Colin Powell is just another liberal.”

“What Colin Powell needs to do is close the loop and become a Democrat,” Limbaugh said.


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

LOL I love how Rush kills them with sarcasm I am not too good at that, and am always amazed when someone like Rush can fire a shot to the enemy and have me laughing at the same time.

It would be fine with me if Powell, McCain and the trash mouth Meghan McCain decided to join the Democrat party. I would not miss any of them. I have had it with the attacks on Conservatives.

Powell got the leader he wanted for the GOP, John McCain, that was the moderate candidate they all wanted. Except for his stance on Abortion he was your A-typical middle of the road democrat. But evidently, all these RINO's want to include Abortion in their platform to be more inclusive, so why even have a GOP when you are a phoney mirror image of the democrats. After all this posturing and promoting the moderate version of the GOP candidate, Powell turns around and endorses Obama. Powell said his endorsement of Obama had nothing to do with race. IF you take him at his word then his endorsement says, he is a democrat. If he is still a RINO then he is a liar.

So the conclusion is he's still a RINO and a liar. That by itself is more democrat.

What would be a good debate would be Meghan McCain and Liz Cheney, that would be worth the admission. Liz Cheney is super.

Powell is liberal. His opportunities presented themselves with the Republicans so pretended to be Republican for years. The veneer slowly came off starting with the First Gulf War. When Powell endorsed Obama all the veneer disappeared. Powell should quit trying to pretend. His agenda now seems to be to split the Republican Party.

debate. Liz would leave her in the dust.
