Swill From Limbaugh: Powell Endorsement "Totally About Race"



General Colin Powell's endorsement of Barack Obama featured thoughtful analyses of the candidate as a "transformational figure" and incisive observations of the McCain campaign's use of smear tactics and distractions.

None of this meant a thing to Rush Limbaugh. From his perspective, it's all quite simple: Obama is black, Powell is black. Therefore, Powell's endorsement was "totally about race."

So how would Limbaugh explain Senator Ted Kennedy's endorsement? Well, perhaps that's more logic than Limbaugh can stand.

Is this really the guy to whom millions listen every day? Limbaugh's statement about the race factor and Powell is nonsensical; what it really reveals is Limbaugh's own racism.

Is it about race?
Only one person knows for sure…and that’s Powell
Of course, Powell claims that he’s not happy with the “rightward shift” of the Republican party. But is there any merit in his accusation???
Listen to the views of Republican Senator Michelle Bachmann
Click to watch Senator Michelle Bachmann’s interview on Hardball
So...what do you think??. is Colin Powell was just being overly sensitive, or does he have a point???

Norris: No, Powell did not endorse Obama based upon race. That's only Limbaugh's racism speaking. Powell presented a well reasoned analysis about why he backs Obama. As for Michelle Bachmann, she herself exemplifies the rightward shift of her party, with her call for loyalty investigations.
