The liberally smug Hollyweird elitists should feel the heat of conservatives snubbing them for a change - mainly at the box office.

Colin Powell says he's still a Republican but says "There's also a dark vein of intolerance in some part of the party" explaining they "still sort of look down on minorities."
Powell knows Republicans did more for his career than any Democrat.
Now he's falling for the liberal propaganda.
It's not that anyone "looks down" on minorities. Republicans want to give them as many opportunities as possible to lift themselves up.
Unlike democrats who rob them of their dignity, make them victims and support their dependency.
That's what republicans "look down" on.
Colin Powell needs to "look down" on this administration who has put even more people in poverty - and do some serious soul searching.
Anyone still here? Did I miss something earlier that caused everyone to run off?
Unfortunately Colin Powell would have made a great president but his party of choice screwed him over. His choices on Iraq and a whole lot of other BS decisions Bush made would have been a lot different. He got pushed off a cliff politically giving the BS speech about WMD's at the UN spoon feed by Rumsfeld. He has him to thank and his good comrade in arms Dick Cheney both of whom should have been prosecuted. Rice also betrayed him as well

Press conference transcript:
Julianna Goldman - Thank you, Mr. President. I want to come back to the debt ceiling, because in the summer of 2011, you said that you wouldn’t negotiate on the debt ceiling, and you did. Last year you said that you wouldn’t extend any of the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, and you did. So as you say now that you’re not going to negotiate on the debt ceiling this year, why should House Republicans take that seriously and think that if we get to the one-minute-to-midnight scenario that you’re not going to back down?
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/14/us/politics...
House Republicans should not take anything this president does or says seriously.
Even if it means shutting down the whole dang thing to prove it's not all about Obama getting his way.
Yes, great idea, I hope the republicans do just that.

Hollyweird snubbed the director who also directed the Oscar winner, Hurt Locker, because her depiction of waterboarding which gleaned some of the information that led to bin Laden wasn't liberal-propaganda leaning enough.

I'll watch it too just because of that.

Bush ruined his career, after making him make his case for war in front on the UN. Too bad Mr.Powell did not have the fortitude to defy Bush.

Obama didn't save my a$$; he fooled morons like you into voting for him for a second term of incompetence and failure. The military deserves the credit, not the community organizer from corrupt Chicago, you dumba$$! I thank Obama for nothing... especially not for destroying the USA as he continues to do.
