Black And GOP: Why Colin Powell Doesn’t Support His Republican Party’s Candidate Mitt “Moolah” Romney
Posted on October 29th, 2012 - By Bossip Staff
Colin Powell recently revealed (again) that he endorses Barack Obama over his Republican party candidate. Most folks are saying it’s “just because they are both black,” but here is the rundown on why Powell chooses Barack over Money Mitt.
Via Washington Post:
Colin Powell, retired general and veteran of combat and Republican administrations, endorses President Obama and not his party’s candidate Mitt Romney. As he did in 2008, when he crossed party lines to favor Obama over John McCain, Powell runs down a long list of reasons why — from Romney’s “very, very strong neo-conservative views” to doubts about the candidate’s economic plans.
Instead of taking him at his word or believing the sincerity of the same criticisms others have made, a fellow Republican presumes to know the real reason. Romney adviser and former New Hampshire governor John Sununu – last heard questioning the American-ness of the president of the United States – attempted to explain the Powell endorsement on CNN. “When you take a look at Colin Powell, you have to wonder whether that’s an endorsement based on issues or whether he’s got a slightly different reason for preferring President Obama,” he said. When asked to explain, he went on, “Well, I think when you have somebody of your own race that you’re proud of being president of the United States, I applaud Colin for standing with him.” Talk about a back-handed compliment.
The Republican Party — quick to accuse Democrats of playing identity politics and that old standby, the race card – insists its policies are all about individual rights and liberties. But only certain African Americans qualify as independent thinkers, Republicans such as Clarence Thomas, Allen West and Herman Cain. You earn extra points if you, as Cain did, call African Americans who vote Democratic “brainwashed,” or repeat West’s charge that those African Americans reside on a Democratic Party “plantation.” Veer from the party line, though, and respectable showings in GOP primary polls can’t save you, as Cain found out when he lightly criticized the racial epithet painted on a rock at a hunting camp used by Texas Gov. Rick Perry and faced push back from the same folks who had once lionized him. If that’s what happens to Republicans, no wonder African-American Democrats stick with the party, a voting practice that – bluster aside — predated the black man on the ticket.
Despite former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice’s stirring speech at the Republican convention and her support of Romney, her days as loyal party player might be numbered since she refused to go along with the view that the Obama administration is engaged in a cover-up as it investigates the attack that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans last month. For years, Powell has proven his loyalty to the GOP. He was once its poster general for a big tent. Now he is a pariah in the party he still claims, one of, he said, a “dying breed,” a moderate Republican who rejects views he sees as extreme.
Powell’s former chief of staff Col. Lawrence Wilkerson is explicit in his view that the Republican Party is “full of racists,” who only want President Obama out of office because he’s black. Years ago, Powell distanced himself from Wilkerson because of his criticism of the Bush administration, and I can’t imagine him using such language as he plots his own independent path.
But to dismiss Powell’s concerns about a party he thinks has gone too far and classify his Obama endorsement as just a case of race-based solidarity — a “brother” supporting one of his own – is another step back for the party of Lincoln looking to reclaim the voters and philosophy of inclusion it jettisoned along the way.
Hermain Cain Loves Him Some Mitt Romney And Says “There Are A Lot Of Closet Conservative Black People Who Think For Themselves”

Herman Cain Believes More Black People Will Turn To GOP
Big Daddy Cain was at the GOP convention speaking on how more black folks are becoming republicans…closet republicans:
Why is one-time Republican presidential contender Herman Cain optimistic about the GOP bringing more African-Americans into its tent? Because “a lot of people in this country have not realized or it does not get picked up in the polls [that] some black people can think for themselves,” he said Monday afternoon. “They don’t have to be told what to think and who to vote for and they are responding to the facts.”
Cain was talking to an ABC News crew led by Nightline’s Terry Moran. Cain said he’s convinced there are many more ABCs — “American black conservatives” — than pundits and politicians think.
“I’m an ABC!” he enthusiastically told Moran. And while other blacks “may not be visible as delegates” at the largely white GOP convention, “I know that they are there. There are a lot of closet conservative blacks in this country looking for a home.”
Why won’t blacks, who have overwhelmingly voted Democratic for decades, continue to do so — especially when there’s an African-American in the Oval Office? Because President Obama hasn’t delivered on the things that all Americans want, Cain said: jobs, a sound budget, strong defense.
He’s now strongly behind Mitt Romney’s bid for the White House, added Cain. And he wonders why Romney doesn’t do better on polls about “likeability.”
“Governor Romney is one of the most likeable people out there. … I like him!,” Cain said. “What has happened here — the mainstream media, and the liberals, they have tried to define him as not as likeable as Obama and that is simply not true.”
