May 24 (Bloomberg) -- Former Secretary of State Colin Powell said the Republican Party needs to break free from the grip of conservative radio commentator Rush Limbaugh and forge a more inclusive identity.
Powell responded to comments by Limbaugh urging him to become a Democrat, and by former Vice President Dick Cheney that he had abandoned the party, declaring his loyalty to the Republicans. Powell said he is trying to boost his party’s electoral prospects.
"Double agent" is a counterintelligence term for someone who pretends to spy on a target organization on behalf of a controlling organization, but in fact is loyal to the target organization. Double agents may be agents of the target organization who infiltrate the controlling organization, or may be previously loyal agents of the controlling organization who have been captured and turned by the target; the threat of execution is the most common method of turning a captured agent into a double agent. Compare to defector.

I really hope that the Republicans start putting up some more electable candidates.

I am one that hates most of what the right stands for but disagrees with the left on many things. After the fiasco of the Obmanation I have lost all faith in this bogus political system...
I never would have predicted that I would loose total faith in our system. I am sure I am not alone in this. Now is the perfect time for a new party to spring to life, question is will anyone take it seriously?

Republicans should really forgive Powell. Even though he endorsed Obama for President, he couldn't help it, he got caught up in the "Cult of Personality", that and the fact he is black. Why else would he do that since McCain shares all the same views as Powell AND he is a Republican to boot?
yeah this is the guy who bad mouths republicans and tells us that all americans want more government and services in our lives....and higher taxes.
