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.
