Colin Powell was spot on with his remarks about the Republican party abandoning its own policies. Ron Paul made this comment several times during the
primaries and debates, and is one of the reasons he doesn't leave the Republican party because he would like to see it return to its roots. Smaller
government, less spending, no empire building.
I think Powells endorsement will ring very loud with a lot of conservative republicans that have been on the fence. Remember that there were several
other Republicans running for office, and McCain wasn't the top runner through much of the race. A lot of Republicans I know were very disappointed
with the outcome.
A lot probably will not vote, or will vote for a 3rd party but I think this endorsement will make many of them feel a lot better about crossing party
lines. And this will be a wake up call for many more that don't pay a lot of attention and see this. They are going to want to know why and will
check into it.
lol@Rush Limbaugh; thats like saying Michal Moore is going to look something up...really no surprise there. And what was Limbaugh doing while Moore
was helping to rebuild houses in New Orleans...drug charges or something? Just the fact that Limbaugh would turn it into a race thing speaks volumes
to his character.
edit - spelling - endorsement/enforcement - ironic in similarity?
