This is where Powell and similar rational Republicans get it wrong, Reagan et. al. are the guys that cut the moorings and set the party of Goldwater and Eisenhower adrift. They're the ones who embraced the insane right wing "christians" that are forcing the party into irrelevancy. They're the ones who made the party a punchline rather than a reasoned counterpoint to the excesses of the left. The ones that made they've made their own excesses more abhorrent than those of the left.
Powell may be rational, but he is not a Republican.

If he wanted a "Republican", then Obama should have selected Powell to be Secretary of Defense.

This is an important part of my rather lengthy previous post.
The few conservatives who were split at that time based it mostly on the grounds of the pacing and methods used to push civil rights. Barry Goldwater’s opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was on constitutional grounds. Goldwater always supported civil rights measures before and after that time.
So which is worse? Goldwater believing civil rights should be a states' rights issue on Constitutional grounds and supporting civil rights measures - or Robert "KKK" Byrd who became a repentent career politician in the Democrat Party?
I mean, that's what I'm talking about when I say liberals can't seem to figure out which is worse.
It's the same with Nixon who advanced civil rights and affirmative action but voted for busing at a time when tensions were running high in the south.
Or the only two prominent Dixiecrats who left behind the Democrat Party to join Republicans on the issue of integration.
It's a matter of discernment and perspective.
The same two things liberals try so hard to distort.
"Barry Goldwater’s opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was on constitutional ground" and he said this with a straight face :-)
Segregationists seemed to have excuses for opposition to integration.
"states rights"

Republican yarns are often inventive ... not convincing to voters

Colin Powell's credibility went down the tubes along with his career the moment he went before the UN and made Bush' case for war when he knew it was a lie. He's done. How many people have died because he didn't have the courage to say no.

Exactly. I wonder what her daughter thinks! Let us hope that the young people, the offspring of these racists break away from the cycle of hate. The future is our young people and racism is a learned behavior.

What's happening to King's message is part of a larger trend in American history: a deliberate attempt to "misremember" race, says Branch, the civil rights author.

"That is the temptation of American history, to say we don't need to deal with race anymore. We misremembered the Civil War for a 100 years, thinking that it had nothing to do with slavery and that the glorious old wonderful South was like 'Gone with the Wind,' " Branch says.

What Branch calls "misremembering" others call recapturing King's conservative legacy.

Foreign policy decisions are difficult, Powell went with the information he had.
Powell seemed a bit tired of the Republican ticket in 2012, to his credit.

14-year-old in Henry County, Georgia unintentionally shot and killed his 15-year-old brother early Saturday morning while playing with his mother’s gun, according to police. The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that charges may be brought against the teenager and his mother, who have not yet been named. Though the mother left the handgun unloaded, the brothers were apparently still able to use it.

Adolf Hitler and Henry Ford. These are not names you usually link together, but they both had a strange mutual understanding and admiration for each other.
It is common knowledge that Ford revolutionized the world of transportation and mass production with his Ford automobile plants that started in the United States and expanded into other parts of the world. What is not as well known is his fervent hatred towards Jewish people (a hatred shared by fellow super-financier J.P. Morgan) and Ford's flagrant financial and political backing of Adolf Hitler.

Sheriff
January 16, 2013
The Honorable Barak Obama
President United States of America
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington D.C. 20500
Dear Mr. President,
My name is Charles M. Heiss and I am the Sheriff of Johnson County, Missouri. I have held this office since January 1, 1997. I am writing to you to express my concern with the tone of your administration with respect to the Second Amendment Rights of American citizens. It appears to me and many Americans that there is a genuine desire on the part of your administration to restrict the Second Amendment rights of law abiding American citizens in the interest of curbing gun violence in our nation.
Throughout our nation’s history the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights has served as the very foundation of our free society. The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution has long guaranteed our citizens the right to keep and bare arms and is central to our ability to live in a free society. Any attempt to restrict these Second Amendment rights through executive order is unconstitutional and tantamount to an all-out assault on the United States Constitution. Just as the Fourth Amendment to the constitution guarantees our citizens the right to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable search and seizure, the Second Amendment guarantees each of us the right to keep and bare arms to protect ourselves from anyone who would seek to cause us harm. This includes the federal Government.
World history has shown us that when a society does not possess the ability to defend itself it becomes ripe for victimization by criminals, and ripe for government oppression. One need not look too far in today’s world to see glaring examples of defenseless people being brutalized by rogue regimes and dictators. Syria, North Korea, and Mali are just a few examples of this type of oppression. Mexico is a stark reminder of a society overrun with criminal element in the form of Drug Cartels.
As the duly elected Sheriff of Johnson County, Missouri, it is my sworn duty to protect and defend the Constitutions of the United States of America, and the State of Missouri against all enemies both foreign and domestic. This means I not only have the duty to protect my constituents from incidents of crime, but I also have a duty and responsibility to protect and preserve the individual rights and liberties afforded and guaranteed to every citizen by our constitutions. This, Mr. President is a duty I fully understand, appreciate, and will carry out with great vigor and conviction. I will most certainly urge my fellow Sheriffs in the State of Missouri and across this great nation to rise to the defense and aid of all Americans should the federal government attempt to enact any legislation, or executive order that impedes, erodes, or otherwise diminishes their constitutional right to keep and bare arms. I will use all means legal to meet this solemn and sacred responsibility.
Respectfully,
Charles M. Heiss
Sheriff Johnson County, MO

'Cuomo’s adult-home order is crazy: critics
By CHUCK BENNETT
Posted: 1:08 AM, January 22, 2013
The city’s population of mentally deranged street people may explode because of new regulations signed by Gov. Cuomo last week that forbid privately run adult homes from accepting new residents, advocates warned.
“Hospitals can’t discharge to us,” said Jeffrey Edelman, who runs adult homes in Queens and The Bronx.“Within a week, the hospitals will be starting to get backed up, and they are going to have big problems.”
The change is part of the state’s efforts to comply with a federal court ruling that found institutionalizing the mentally ill in adult homes wrongly segregates them.
An estimated 4,000 to 6,000 mentally ill people, the majority in New York City, could be affected.
“My residents need reminders several times a day to take their medications and see their doctors,” Edelman said.“My residents used to be in homeless shelters and went from hospital to hospital.”

Just about every liberal/Democrat I know has an "issue".

Liberals are nuts.

I bet a weeks pay Leosnan is bipolar.

Those folks all have something. They are easy pray for the government class hate promoters now called Democrats. They value votes, not common sense. Cuomo is a wingnut.

Support Grows for Roe v. Wade
Seven in 10 Americans believe Roe v. Wade should stand, according to new data from a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, as the landmark Supreme Court abortion-rights ruling turns 40 on Tuesday.
That is the highest level of support for the decision, which established a woman's right to an abortion, since polls began tracking it in 1989.

When was the last time you heard someone of significance speak out about Intelligent Design?
I know that neither of these issues belong to you but they are near and dear to the folks that stink up your party.
Roe v. Wade was a bad decision, even if one supports the right to choose.

He said that he knew it wasn't true; I like Colin Powell, but he was a loyal soldier and lacked the courage needed to say no. Bush threw him to the wolves. A lesson learned from any minority who fancies himself to ever be part of the good old boys club. It never happens.
