    Powell calls out Hannity over obsession with Bill Ayers and Rev. Wright | The Raw Story

    Retired Gen. Colin Powell is encouraging Fox News host Sean Hannity to give up his obsession about President Barack Obama’s former relationships with Bill Ayers and Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

    “I find him one of the most divisive figures in — that I’ve witnessed in politics today,” Hannity told Powell during an interview on Tuesday.

    “[T]hat’s a term that’s being used rather freely,” Powell noted. “I don’t think he’s that divisive an issue. … What could have been more divisive than, when President Obama was inaugurated, for a number of Republicans, friends of mine, and a number of commentators to say, ‘We’re going to destroy him. We’re going to destroy him’?”

    “I wasn’t out to destroy him,” Hannity insisted. “I was critical about Bill Ayers and Rev. Wright.”

    “Bill Ayers and Rev. Wright are just passing things,” Powell pointed out.

    Oops. Wrong forum. If a mod could move this to politics, I'd appreciate it.

    Only a partisan hack would think that Powell put Hannity in his place with that discussion. It seemed like a calm, reasoned, back and forth debate.

    Fail thread.

    Sure Colie, 20 years in Wright's church and an indoctrination since his early years is just a passing phase.

    Pay here no mind. She talks out of her ass. Did you ever see her post a rebuttal with an actual fact..heck even a link. She posts some stupid, snide remark as her way of demonstrating that she has a shallow opinion.

    She likes to post the word :"Fail"..based only on her lack of any rebuttal. Probably describes her school grades more than anything else.

    “At the time, it was a guy who was living in Chicago and happened to have a friend by the name of Bill Ayers,” Powell replied. “But I don’t see Bill Ayers as having that kind of longstanding terrorist influence on the president.”

    Yeah, it just happens. It just happens he loves Saul Alinsky, too. Wake up Powell...there's a pattern. It's okay to criticize a fellow African American. Powell=RINO Many say he lied at the U.N for GWB. Well if he did what does that tell you about his convictions.

    It was a calm and reasoned put down of a petulant child by a statesman.
