Powell's Wrong on What the GOP Needs

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell believes that the Republican party attempted "to use polarization for political advantage" in the presidential election last month, and that the attempt backfired.

CNN's website reports that "Powell... said [in an interview with Fareed Zakariato which will air Sunday] the GOP must see what is in the 'hearts and minds' of African-American, Hispanic and Asian voters 'and not just try to nfluence [sic] them by… the principles and dogma.'"

The CNN report went on to say, "Powell, who says he still considers himself a Republican, said his party should also stop listening to conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh.

"'Can we continue to listen to Rush Limbaugh?' Powell asked. 'Is this really the kind of party that we want to be when these kinds of spokespersons seem to appeal to our lesser instincts rather than our better instincts?'"

Answer to General Powell: Yes, that is, in fact, the kind of party we want to be. It's the kind of party we had better be if we hope to survive as a party. The party has been trying to be the Democrat Lite party, and it hasn't worked.

The last thing the GOP needs is to listen to a socially liberal RINO who decided two weeks before the election who he would endorse.

Give Credit Where Credit's Due

President George W. Bush has just a short time left in the Oval Office.

Unfortunately, many will always think of him as the President who lied to get us into a war, even though he almost certainly did not lie.

Others will most closely associate President Bush with the current economic crisis, and as the President, he certainly has to accept responsibility. However, if we are honest, there are many lawmakers, both republicans and democrats, who are at least equally at fault. We can find further fault in the hands of CEOs and union leaders. In short, there is plenty of blame to go around on that one, but the President will be the one remembered as the President who got us into the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.

So if history is going to judge this president for what is perceived, rightly or wrongly, to be his failings, then he should also be given credit for what he has done extremely well: protect the American people.

Yes, I do realize that 9-11 happened on his watch. It happened eight months into the Bush presidency. That was just nine months after the Clinton administration submitted to Congress its final national security report, a 45,000 word document that make no mention of al Qaeda and refers to Osama bin Laden only four times. It was after eight years of al Qaeda's organizing and growing more powerful during the Clinton presidency. No one but the most ardent Bush-hater can blame President Bush for 9-11.

So what has happened since 9-11? The terrorists continue to be dangerous and they continue to attempt to attack America and Americans... and so far, under the Bush administration, they have been stopped. There is public information available on at least 19 terrorist conspiracies that have been thwarted by the U.S.

The list is available on many websites. Here's a link to the list as complied by The Heritage Foundation.

Say what you want about President Bush. The fact remains that he has kept Americans safe from terrorism since 9-11-01. And if you think that's an easy job, just ask the Indian security forces who were in charge of protecting Mumbai, India.
