RUSH: I’m getting e-mail, people here at the studio, ‘When are you going to talk about Colin Powell?’ Folks, I don’t care, I don’t care what Colin Powell says. This kind of stuff is said about me three times a day by all liberals under the sun, and Colin Powell is just another liberal. He did this back in December, and I responded to it then. Look, if you want to know what this is all about, Colin Powell is out there saying the American people want more taxes, they want bigger government. He’s out there saying I am killing the Republican Party while he endorsed and voted for Obama. The Republican Party nominated the exact kind of candidate Colin Powell thinks the Republican Party should have and he still endorsed Obama. He’s just mad at me because I’m the one person in the country that had the guts to explain his endorsement of Obama. It was purely and solely based on race. There can be no other explanation for it.
What Colin Powell needs to do is close the loop and become a Democrat, instead of claiming to be a Republican interested in reforming the Republican Party. He’s not. He’s a full-fledged Democrat. The only reason to endorse Obama is race. I don’t think Powell thinks he could get away with not endorsing Obama because the Republicans nominated the exact candidate that had the exact campaign, other than Sarah Palin, that Colin Powell advocated. So I don’t care. This kind of stuff is said about me ten times a day by liberals. He’s just one of them doing it.
