The Republican Party Needs to Stop Listening to Colin Powell

Former Secretary of State and putative Republican Colin Powell told CNN that the party must stop listening to Rush Limbaugh. He couldn‘t be more wrong.

The party unfortunately listened to voices urging a centrist move and responded with the nomination of Sen. John McCain. The good senator based his campaign from the middle, supporting public financing of elections, amnesty for illegal immigrants, and a whole host of other programs enthusiastically endorsed by the left.

We got our collective rear end handed to us and rightly so because we forgot who we are. Rush reminds us of what conservatism means.

If we want to remain politically relevant, we need to remember who we are and what we stand for. Stop listening to Colin and listen more to Rush, Sean and Laura.

Colin Powell needed to stop listening to the Republican Party -- and run for president. He would have won.
