By The Right Scoop


Despite Colin Powell’s comments yesterday that he may not vote for Obama a second time, Rush said today that he feels sure that the titular head of the Republican Party will vote for Obama because melanin is thicker than water:

I’m sure the MSM will be up in arms over this calling Rush a racist for even uttering such words. But what good reason could Powell have had for voting for Obama in the first place? His foreign policy experience? His military experience? His community organizing experience? No, we all knew Colin Powell endorsed Obama because he was black. It was a historic vote, remember? Even Rush said so much back in 2008 when Powell endorsed Obama, that it had everything to do with race. So why should we expect anything different now?

    You can’t be a conservative without being tone deaf to criticism of raceism!

      Long before Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson & son, Louis Farrahkan and others started hitting Rush with the racist charge, there was a conservative talk radio host by the name of Ken Hamblin. He had over 100 syndicated stations broadcasting his show as The Black Avenger, one day Rush’s mother (Millie) called his show on his birthday and started singing Happy Birthday to Mr. Hamblin. I recognized her voice before Mr. Hamblin did and when Rush’s mom told him who it was I know he was so proud to have her as a listener. No one will ever convince me there is a racist bone in the Limbaugh family.

        The real racist and haters are the very people accusing everyone else of those charges. The gig is up!

          That’s so true – ‘You shall know them by that which they accuse others’.

    Colon Piles said he needs more time to carefully deliberate before deciding if he’ll support Obama again….Very prudent of you, general. After all, he’s only been president for nearly three years. Wouldn’t want to be too hasty, would we? That’s our general – bold, decisive, man of action.

    Rush is soooo creatively right! Even with “half his brain tied behind his back just to make it fair.” Love it.

    Rush is sooo right about Collin Powell …

    If he voted for him because he is black in 2008 then he will vote for him in 2012 because he is still definitely black. And as Obama’s book says he wishes he could get all that white blood out of him. Forget that his white family raised him even if they self lothed being white and hated the country they lived in they were better than the black blood in him that abandoned baby Obama to pursue his own selfish goals. This in itself should tell you how mentally off the POTUS really is. Colin Powell and Obama deserve each other. I for one have not respect for either one of them. Colin needs to become and independent or a democrate and get the hell out of the Republican party.

    What is his approval among blacks? They have no reason to cry racism. If they aren’t voting for him because of his skin color, it must be because they’re stupid.

    If it was so ‘historic’, then Allen Keyes or Hillary Clinton would have been president by now. Obama brought nothing to the table other candidates didn’t already have in spades (hey, is that racist?) other then the luckiest timing in the world to have the economy tank right as McCain/Palin were beginning to mow Obama down.

    Powell surely made it obvious he was standing with the black community in is punlic support for Obama.

    However well disguised, the reason he supports Hussein runs deeper than melanin, water or Party. These Globalists are cult-like in their commitment to the erosion of our sovereignty and the goals of statism and internationalism

    The Democrats and many others said that “Bush lied, people died, etc.” Harry Belafonte said that C. Powell was an “Uncle Tom” because the U.S. went into A-stan after 9/11. C. Powell was the one with the PowerPoint presentation that convinced everyone to go into Iraq. Therefore, C. Powell should have been seen by them as a liar, monster, etc. Therefore, the Democrats shouldn’t have wanted anything to do with C. Powell in 2008 or now. And yet many of them did and do. Crazy!

    I used to respect Colin Powell. It has proven himself to be yet another “useful idiot” that votes “race over reason”.

  • Anonymous

    Powell is the guy they laughed out of the warroom, apparently. The guy who endorsed O for reasons that defy reason (which reminds me that Peggy Noonan, that other genius “on the right” endorsed O). With friends like these, we don’t need enemies.

    Colin Powell has got a good excuse to endorse the Messiah for 2012 election. Now he will say, “Dick Cheney has taken the party to far right.” Couple of years ago he was blaming Palin saying she has taken the party to far to the right. Will someone please tell General Powell that he is the one who has gone to the left and his favorite Manchild President is by far the most Liberal President in U.S. history. Please Mr. Powell get a job at MSNBC so you can trash Republicans 24/7. I urge to the Republican party to ignore Powell from now on. There is absolutely no need to have people like Powell in the party. He agrees with everything that Obama has done so far to this country. I am just waiting for him to start blaming Bush (just like his Boy does) for everything.

    Just what is it with these Obummer ‘supporters’ (e.g. Powell, Noonan), that destroys that part of their brain that would normally think and act in a clear manner? One thing for certain, the year 2012 is going to be a very interesting year to watch!

      Remember what Peggy Noonan did to Palin during the last presidential election? (I’m pretty sure it was Palin…in an article Noonan wrote)

      If I were a girl, I’d like to pull her hair, scratch her eyes out, and talk about her behind her skanky back.

    Rush is a National Treasure and I deeply appreciate him. That being said, I almost drove off the road (I was going south on Hwy 10 ) When I heard Rush floating Powell as a V.P, candidate for W Bush. This was way before 9/11

    Could possibly be that Obama is a moderate, like Colin Powell. No. Has to be about skin color. Wow. But hey, dude, keep repeating it over and over and that will make it a valid opinion, right? I mean, that’s the core of ditto-head-ism, right?

    Maybe Colin Powell voted for Obama because the people he trusted and worked for (i.e. Bush, Cheney and the whole lot) left him holding the bag in the UN and helped destroy his credibility. I’ll take a society of men of honor like Powell over fat pill popping scumbags like Rush any day.

    We all “know” Powell voted for Obama because he was black? Please provide the evidence that proves his vote was based upon the canidate’s skin color. How do we all “know”? Just because you do not see anything positive in Obama’s politics does not mean that Powell (whose political knowledge and experience undoubtably outweighs your own) did not have a reason to vote for him besides his race. I am not denying that race was a factor in the 2008 election but to suggest that Powell would base his decision entirely on race is completely ignorant.
    Why should we assume Powell will automatically endorse Obama in the 2012 election? Any true PATRIOT of this country carefully considers all canidates, their politics, and cold-hard facts before casting their vote. As the Republican canidate has not yet been selected, how can anyone say who they are voting for? If you believe that anyone who supports Obama based on his politics (not his race) is stupid, then that is your opinion which you are 100% entitled to – that’s the beauty of America.
    But to say that “melanin is thicker than water” is absolutely disgusting. You are promoting a basic foundation of a segregated society: that citizens of this great country cannot see beyond the color of one anothers skin.
    So much for progress.
