Powell has become a joke. He owes his success to Ronald Reagan and the conservatives.

Powell has always been a joke. He has never been a strong leader, he whines a lot, and he values being popular too much to ever stick to his guns.

I liked the guy. He put his personal beliefs ahead of the party which to me is more honest than most of the others.

Cool

I would call claimning to be a member of one party while proclaiming and promoting the principles of the opposite party, to be DIShonest, hypocritical and pure political opportunism.

What's honest about being a RINO?

I just wished his position on gun control was different. He has a right to that opinion but it isn't one that I share. I think he is pointing out the the GOP needs to transition if it wants to be a player in the coming elections. The path they are taking isn't working.

I don’t think he is being opportunistic. He had his chance to run for POTUS and declined. He is retired and I believe will stay that way. Not all GOP are far right. I believe he is more of a moderate within the party. Many in the GOP are following that path.

He cerainly has a right to his opinion just as we all do. But his opinion that the Republican Party should transition to being like the Democratic Party is shared with most Democrats.

He should show some integrity and join the Democrats.

It depends on how far right your views are. Perhaps a more centered GOP would build more of a base.


That symbol will keep the GOP member numbers declining.
