White Republicans: Powell Endorsed Obama Just Because He’s Black

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Bolitics, News

Posted by Bossip Staff

Rush Limbaugh and a slew of other conservatives dismissed Colin Powell’s endorsement of Barack Obama as race loyalty:

“Secretary Powell says his endorsement is not about race,” Limbaugh wrote. “OK, fine. I am now researching his past endorsements to see if I can find all the inexperienced, very liberal, white candidates he has endorsed. I’ll let you know what I come up with.

“I was also unaware of his dislike for John Roberts, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Anthony Kennedy and Antonin Scalia. I guess he also regrets Reagan and Bush making him a four-star and secretary of state and appointing his son to head the FCC. Yes, let’s hear it for transformational figures.”

Powell said this morning that if this had been about race he would have endorsed Obama last year, as opposed to giving Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., campaign contributions. It was about the campaigns Obama and McCain have been waging, Powell said, and the candidates they have become.

    “us white people will take care of you”.

    white republicans do the same damn thing, so they need to go somewhere with that.

    LOL! Why doesn’t Rush Limbaugh say that black people are voting for Obama because of race loyalty?

    Why doesn’t he also say that white people are voting for McCain because of race loyalty?

    Both of the above statements are true, and it doesn’t matter…because CLEARLY Obama is a qualified candidate and we can choose to vote for whomever we want. Who is Limbaugh (and others) to go around questioning our decisions?

    Or is it cause Powell slapped the repubs in the face with his decisions? It stings, doesn’t it?

    Powell’s answer this morning says it all…no discussion needed

    Just a mess if you ask me!

    They honestly need to GTFOH with that madness. I am glad some of these people are starting to show their true colors during this campaign. Shady white people have been pulling these political tricks for decades. They need to step off or get with program. The times are aaa-changing and they are going to get left in the past like the South following the Civil War.

    White repulicans (white people in general) make me sick. If this endorsement doesn’t change undecided voters minds, then nothing else will. Gen. Powell is a respected REBULICAN who is disgusted by his own affiliation and has clearly advised that Palin is not experienced enough for VP. It has nothing to do with race – you can watch the debates blind-folded and clearly recognize that Obama is the right person to serve as the president of the US.

    Colin Powell is a smart man and didn’t need race to make an informed decision. He chose Obama because he was the more qualified candidate in his opinion. End of discussion.

    White republicans are just shook, that’s all.

  • Katherine

    Colin Powell is a man of integrity..it takes a lot of courage to go against your politcal party because of stupid ish like this

    there is a huge difference between endorsing someone because they’re black and endorsing someone because they’re black AND qualified..Barack is the second, but i dont think that’s why Powell endorsed him, he’s right the McCain campaign has become so hateful, they’re like KKK rallies

  • BLUNTBLAZER

    We starting voting in Florida today and the polls in South Florida are packed with BLACKS!!! WOO HOOO!!!

  • michelle

    Why is it that whenever someone is black that’s endorsing Obama it has to be bc he’s black? Where was this outcry when the Kennedy’s endorsed him??

    And for yt people to say that we’re voting for him bc of the color of his skin all i got to say is that black folks have been voting DEMOCRATS since they were able to vote which were mainly yt DEMOCRATS. This time around it just happens to be a black man running now what!!! YES WE CAN AND YES WE WILL!!!!

    Crakers endorse other Crakers everyday. In less than three weeks your Commander and Chief will be a Black man, that is what they are fretting about. White racist are worried that all the injustices they committed against us, will come back on them.

    Yes, there are people voting for Obama cause he’s black. And there are white people voting for McCain because he’s white.

    Why can’t we vote for a black president if we’re proud enough to finally see a potential black candidate in our lifetime? We’ve voted for a white president for a LONG time…now we finally have a choice.

  • CHAZ'

    So if he is voting for Obama because he is black is it safe to say that all the high class republicans that are knocking him are voting for McCain because he is white?

  • thatbrutha

    Colin and Obama are black? WTF

  • Anonymous3 - the fire sign

    what does Obama’s race have anything to do with it???? Republicans and Dems alike know that McCain is a sorry candidate for the Republican party but rather than admit that, they throw race into the mix everytime so that they won’t have to accept that Barack is the better candidate

    I guess he also regrets Reagan and Bush making him a four-star and secretary of state and appointing his son to head the FCC. Yes, let’s hear it for transformational figures.”

    WHAT A TERRIBLE THING TO SAY. If you’re pinning this guy and you all are a FAIR and efficient cabinet, then you should be awarding him because he was qualified and deserving of it. Does he OWE is to them to kiss their feet because of something he earned and worked hard for? As you climb higher in the ranks it takes longer to move up…so he damn sure must’ve done something right.

  • Bahamas/Chicago/Cayman Girl

    To make them feel better about themselves and to do damage control they had to relegate it to a race loyalty!! If they were asute enough to actually watch the interview he outline why he was voting for Obama, because McCain lacked a steady vision and the negative ads and the choice of Gov. Palin as a running mate disqualified grandpa as a viable candidate!! Ofcourse they heard none of that!!

  • CAndy

    It’s so typical for these republicans to just blame it on race. They need to look at their party and the terrible campaign they’ve been running and figure out why someone from there owns party is no longer for them. I watched Mr. Powell on Meet the Press and he gave several legitimate reasons for picking Obama, its obvious race had nothing to do with it.

  • em

    now who’s playing the race card? who is he supposed to be anyway?
