Americans Want More Taxes (Stupid Statement Of The Week)

Colin Powell must have won some kind of award from liberals this week. He made the following statement:

"Americans want to pay more taxes for services. Americans are looking for more government, not less."

Somebody inform the politicians. Last election cycle, all of the candidates were running away from more taxes and more government. Granted, the Democrats were pushing for expanded and new specific government programs. But anytime a politician is asked if he wants to expand government and have more government involvement in the lives of the American people, the answer is an emphatic "NO!"

And while we are at it, somebody inform the American people. They don't seem to be on board, yet.

And while we are at it, somebody inform the American people. They don't seem to be on board, yet.I hope you're right TC ... I think many are so enamored with Obama, they'd give up any number of freedoms for him. It is exactly how Hitler took over Germany in the 1930s.

Well, we'll find out in 2010 whether Americans want a communist government/society. Nice blog here; I'm adding you to my blogroll.

Powell must be hanging out with Bill and inhaling.

What does Colin Powell know, anyway. He's the "Republican" that endorsed Obama, then re-assured us all that Barack was "qualified to be Commander-in-Chief" the week before the Russians caught Obama completely asleep-at-the-wheel and nabbed the Krgyzstani air-base that we use to fly-in most of our supplies to Afghanistan.

I don't trust Powell an inch, he apparently feels guilty about promoting the Iraq war (but shouldn't) and is trying to make amends. He will be considered even more irrelevant (if that's possible) when Obamamania collapses in a poof of dust.

And Powell's motivations are plenty suspect, IMO- a guy from Bush's own cabinet promotes Obama... so why has he never endorsed any liberal, inexperienced white candidates before?

Team Obama, the DNC, and their MSM sycophants have been employing despicable Alinsky-esque divide-and-conquer and character assassination techniques for months now… manufacturing synthetic “fights” like Limbaugh vs. Steele, plus ceaseless ridicule of Jindal, Palin, even shameful distortion of the legacy of Ronald Reagan. Clearly, the strategy is to eliminate GOP rallying points and philosophical framework for 2010/12 and create the image of a party in disarray.

And it’s not difficult to see why the Democrats might prefer to banter playfully about made-up GOP “scandals” and irrelevancies like Meghan McCain’s latest drivel than debate Obama’s ongoing destruction of the country.

When their pork-n-welfare spending orgy fails to create any real economic gains -but stokes vicious inflation and crashes the dollar instead- the Democrats face a bloodbath in 2010.

And by 2012? LOL, the GOP could take 40 states running Gilbert Gottfried.

It's well past time for General Powell to retire from public life.

His growing insignificance is becoming more than a minor personal embarrassment for him.
