Colin Powell and Current GOP “Juvenile Candidates”

Gravitas has become a foreign word in the Republican lexicon…

Colin Powell trashes GOP candidates for their ‘junior high’ antics that ‘belittle the country’

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell took time out from expressing his admiration for the late First Lady Nancy Reagan to say a few words about the rancorous fighting going on between the remaining GOP presidential candidates.

Knock it off.

Speaking with NPR’s Michel Martin on All Things Considered, Powell called their antics “junior high tricks” and compared the GOP debates to Jerry Springer’s shows.

“To stand there and do junior high school tricks on one another is belittling the country and belittling the office to which they are striving,” Powell said while remembering the “lack of any nastiness” he saw when working in the Reagan White House.

Powell referred to comments made by talk show host Jerry Springer in an interview last week, where Springer said of the debates, “Our show is a circus, but the presidency of the United States is not supposed to be a circus.”

Powell agreed, saying, “Even Jerry Springer thinks it’s gone too far, and when Jerry Springer thinks you’ve gone too far, my friends, you have gone too far.”

Powell did not specify any particular candidates in a field that has been winnowed down to businessman Donald Trump, Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio and Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

Uncle Ben’s Best Sno’ Ho’ Impersonation

Caribou Barbie is known for nonsensical stream of (non)consciousness blathering in front of elderly male right wing fans who are stupider than she is (the Viagra generation).

Apparently the plan to resuscitate Uncle Ben’s rapidly collapsing campaign is to imitate Palin.

Uhhhhh…Uncle Ben…

“Putin” is not a country…

It is the world’s second most powerful superpower…

And while they make a lot of money on oil and gas…Their economy is still $2 Trillion a year – 9th largest in the world.

The New Obama Model… With a Backbone

If they are wearing that uniform - they deserve a little love and respect from the rest of us.

President Obama siad something last night that the so-called commentators in the MSM should have been shouting from the rafters –

“We don’t believe in the kind of smallness that says it’s okay for a stage full of political leaders — one of whom could end up being the president of the United States — being silent when an American soldier is booed. We don’t believe in that,” said Obama to loud cheers and a standing ovation.

“We don’t believe in standing silent when that happens. We don’t believe in them being silent since. You want to be commander in chief? You can start by standing up for the men and women who wear the uniform of the United States, even when it’s not politically convenient. We don’t believe in a small America. We believe in a big America — a tolerant America, a just America, an equal America — that values the service of every patriot.”

Obama needs to include this in every speech. The inaction by the 8 people standing on that stage at the Republican Debate is despicable, and shows just how little of their opposition to President Obama, and their morality is based on any legitimate desire for change in policies. The 8 Republican dwarfs are nothing more than a pack of cheap political whores who would sell our service members down the river at a moments notice. Further – the Tea Party isn’t about America…It’s about racism, divisiveness, and hate.
