Not All Great Military Leaders Make Great Politicians

Colin Powell was a great military leader and I respect him tremendously. However, his comments regarding the Republican Party, Rush Limbaugh, and Ann Coulter, show that strong military leadership does not always translate well into the political arena.

To all of the Colin Powells, John McCains, and other naysayers who want to move the GOP to the left, why do we need two liberal parties? If the Dems already own the liberal agenda, why are you necessary?

Why do you continue to believe in the repeatedly disproven theory that moving the party left will somehow get you elected? That ship has sailed and sunk - more than once.

Can't you see what is really happening? As a Republican, you are reaching out to a bunch of big government liberals ("What can I get out of this?") who wouldn't vote for you if you were the reincarnation of FDR.

By reaching out to liberals and shunning your own, you are alienating your base who is disgusted with your complete lack of integrity. Until you learn that lesson you will be relegated to minority status.
