    Lawrence Wilkerson, Former Colin Powell Aide, Blasts Sununu, GOP, As 'Full Of Racists' »


    The Huffington Post | Peter Finocchiaro | October 26, 2012 at 11:41 PM
    Colin Powell's former chief of staff condemned the Republican Party on Friday night, telling MSNBC's Ed Schultz, "My party is full of racists."Retired Army Col. Lawrence Wilkerson made the comment in response to Mitt Romney campaign surrogate John Sununu's suggestion on Thursday that Powell's endorsement of President Barack Obama's re-election was motivated by race.

    Speaking of despicable:
    The in the above reminds me of something I've learned sometime after pres. obama was elected.
    That there were officers in the military soon to retire that were asking/looking for retirement 'certificates' with the prior commander and chief's signature on the bottom. And I'm like nmad, is it that serious? Then another thought had occured at the time, that these officers, a number of them, will get jobs as subvervisors or managers of that many of us will work/apply for. I get it, these folks don't like the idea of their president not looking like 'them', but to the extreme that you feel in necessary to retire with a piece of paper with the name of someone who is no longer president? I mean...why not find a certificate with andrew jackson's name on it...

    Now these cats are trippin' over powell giving his support for pres. obama claiming that it is because he is black. I would say to them, prove it.

    I believe the term for claiming someone else is doing something that you have always done is called projection.
