'My party is full of racists':
Former Colin Powell aide blasts
GOP after Romney adviser says ex-
Secretary of State is only supporting
Obama because he's black

Daily Mail [UK], by Sam Adams & Snejana Farberov

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/27/2012 11:58:11 AM

Colin Powell's former chief of staff publicly blasted the Republican Party and one of Mitt Romney’s top aide as racists over a controversial comment regarding Powell’s endorsement of President Obama. Appearing on Ed Schultz's MSNBC show Friday, retired Army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson said, 'My party is full of racists' in response to John Sununu's remark that the only reason Powell, a Republican who served as secretary of state under George W. Bush, backed the Democratic incumbent is because both men are black. Wilkerson told Schultz that he respected Sununu 'as a Republican,'

Comments:
I'm really sick of these so called "Republicans." They should just quit and go on over to the Democrats because they sure aren't Republicans. This fool must have not noticed the racists that encompasses the entire Democrat party. s/o

I don't notice Republicans (except purported ones) stoking the racism fires in this election.

~~The mixed-race Mr Obama successfully sold himself in 2008 as a 'post-racial' president who would bridge America’s historic black-white divide.

But a tracking poll for the Washington Post shows the president is struggling to connect with many of the white voters who supported him four years ago.
~~

....It is NOT about his race!

And we of course are to pay no attention to the countless African-Americans who say they are voting for Obama "because he is black."

Sorry... I am voting for Romney because of what he stands for. I could care less what Obama's parents looked like.

One benefit of voting for Romney is that eventually all these false charges of racism will be rendered moot...and MSNBC will have nothing at all to talk about.

Why did Sununu open this can of worms?

If, as Sununu says, Colin Powell has " .. got a slightly different reason" for preferring President Obama, can we also say that Sununu has the same "slightly different reason" (not based on issues) for supporting Romney?

Perhaps Sununu should stop talking to the media, because he sometimes seems have he dreaded foot-in-mouth disease.

Colon (sp.) Powell needs to just shut up and get to the back of the Dem plantation bus.

Everyone knows that Colon (sp.) was a Diversity Hire. He advanced in the military because of racial quotas. He was a mediocre general and a lousy secretary of state; he left all the Dem partisans from the Clinton administration in place at State, continually undercut and backstabbed GWB, leaked sensitive stuff the press per his agenda, and left Scooter Libby out to dry for his/Armitage's own misdeed.
He is a man without honor.

Colin Powell is a Republican in the same sense that Benedict Arnold was an American.

If Republicans are more racist than Democrats, why were the first two African-American Secretaries of State, including Colin Powell, appointed by a Republican rather than a Democratic president? And why is the only current African-American Supreme Court Justice a Republican who was appointed by a Republican president?

As for African-Americans in general, during the last year of Republican George Bush's presidency, 2008, the Black unemployment rate was 10.1%, while during the last full year of Democrat Barack Obama's presidency, 2011, the Black unemployment rate was more than fifty percent higher at 15.8%.

The only group that should be eager for such statistics to continue is the truly racist Ku Klux Klan. Yet Colin Powell is trying to do everything possible to accommodate their hopes by re-electing the best President the Ku Klux Klan has had since Democrat Woodrow Wilson segregated Federal Buildings and jobs after 50 years of integration -- Barack Obama.

Blacks often complain there aren't enough blacks in positions. Elected office, debate moderator, you name it. If it's mostly white, it's not right.

Then when they endorse another black for a position, they get bent out of shape if somebody suggests color is a factor.

Following up last weekend’s official White House photo of President Obama talking on the phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the administration today released another phone photo, this one of a conversation with French President Francois Hollande. This one comes from Key Largo, Fla., where Obama is spending the weekend before returning to Washington to host a reception Monday for the 2012 and 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Champions before moving on to fundraising events Tuesday. “The President welcomed the strong, unified stance of the United States and the European Union regarding Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine, including

While IRS officials were targeting Tea Party groups for special scrutiny of their 501(c)3 tax exempt applications, the IRS also hired a policeman who had been prosecuted by the Justice Department — and convicted in federal court — of using his access to the FBI’s NCIC system to tip off a terror suspect about the bureau’s surveillance. The leak wrecked a major terror investigation. He is still at the IRS.

Two days after a shocking defeat, liberals are still grousing about the Senate spiking the nomination of former NAACP Legal Fund Director Debo Adegbile to be head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. What really burns them up is not just that Republicans successfully filibustered one of President Obama’s choices for a government post but that six Democrats joined with them. But rather than take responsibility for putting forward a controversial figure who was sure to provoke bitter opposition from both sides of the aisle, liberals are reverting to form by blaming their defeat on conservative demagoguery and racism.

WASHINGTON — In late December, President Barack Obama´s new legislative affairs team sent him more than a dozen recommendations for ways to improve his strained relations with Capitol Hill. The president responded with a few ideas of his own, including a request for more social events with lawmakers at the White House. It was a surprising suggestion from a president who has done little socializing with lawmakers of either party and has dismissed the notion that sharing a cocktail or a meal with members of Congress is a prescription for easing Washington gridlock. But within weeks, there Obama was, mingling

Obama and the sports figures were joined by Cyrus Walker, who is the cousin of White House adviser Valerie Jarrett. The president has teamed up with Mourning during several recent trips to Florida.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa joined Megyn Kelly Thursday night to react to the uproar over him cutting off Elijah Cummings‘ mic during a contentious IRS hearing, saying that accusations he was “racist” are just “beneath response.” Issa suggested Cummings’ outburst was a “pre-staged event,” but Kelly asked, “Who cares?

During his speech to the CPAC crowd on Thursday, Sen.

McCain fired back at Cruz during an appearance on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. McCain said he spoke to Cruz about the comments and it was “cordial” but he took specific offense at the remarks concerning Dole. “He can say what he wants to about me and he can say anything he wants to about Mitt,” McCain said,

Via Matt Lewis, here’s Maverick once again demonstrating that “cordial relationship” in politico-speak means “two people who can’t publicly admit to hating each other but obviously do.” And it’s a cheap shot. Cruz’s point yesterday at CPAC was that Dole, McCain, and Romney lost because they weren’t conservative enough. That’s not because they’re gutless — he said specifically that they were “good” and “decent” men — but because they’re not committed, full-throated ideologues, even less so when they’re fighting for purple states in a national election. We can debate whether that’s true but there’s nothing offensive in raising the subject.

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey
