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.

    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?

    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.

    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
