General Colin Powell is a registered republican… but he isn’t the self-hating token Uncle Tom that Allen West and other Black right-wingers show themselves to be. Voter ID laws backfired in 2012 and republicans are just further alienate them politically…

And that makes me soooooo HAPPY.

Maybe they (Obama thugs) have some dirt on Powell? Justice Roberts changed his vote on Obamacare for some unknown reason at the last moment, I suspect he too has some major skeletons in his closet that they found out from their illegal spying.
The Obama administration will stop at nothing to crush their Opposition although Powells true colors may be the reason for his switch toward the half-black man.

After 5 years of failed taxpayer funded jobs fiasco's, green energy taxpayer funded bankruptcies, the largest tax in American history and already causing layoffs, moves to part time and companies shutting their doors....no he wasn't.

He voted black....that's all. Thank the Lord Stormin' Norman led Desert Storm and Colin was in the rear with the gear.

Powell is of course quite correct. Republican attempts to deny the vote to Blacks produced exactly the result he is talking about.

Keep it up, racist swine. You're helping the good guys.

Powell was one of the first black people who was promoted in the military, because of Affirmative Action. He was involved in a scandal where orders were given (he doesn't know who) to destroy a whole village, women, and children, turns out the men fled. Suddenly we needed a black General. He is a RINO, and was only a Republican to get the promotion.
