    Hi, to the community. I think that it was good of Rush Limbaugh to express his views on a Black President and to prove that he is not a racist has promoted Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice as strong candidates for presidential status. I think that it was fair on the part of Rush to say about is comments on a black president. I think that we should thank him….shouldn’t we?

    I personally don't care who Rush endorses nor what he believes. I find him entertaining about once every two years for comedic relief only.

    I don't see that a person's skin color or gender should have any bearing on whether or not they are qualified to be the President of the US, nor do I see the point to it being brought up at all as far as qualifications go.

    And if Condoleeza Rice and Colin Powell would quit allowing the GOP to whore them out as "look, we got black candidates too," people might actually listen to what they have to say in its own right.

    :clap2:

    . . . and whatever happened to Colin Powell anyway? He seems never to have returned from that magical land to which covertly fired cabinet members routinely retreat in order to "spend more time with their families".

    it's a shame what the Bush admin did to him - one of the few sensible people in that whole cadre when it began. Him and Christie Whitman.

    Colin Powell whored himself Bush and then felt ashamed I think.

    I have no idea what a bright woman like Condi is doing with this pack of criminals. She also is now a criminal.


    It shows you how shallow Rush is. He knows the republican party will never run either one of these people for president.

    Precisely why he can safely (and with his patented smug cynicism) endorse them as candidates.

    Exactly. So it certainly isn't proof that Rush isn't racist.

    He could be or not.

    What he is for sure is a guy who is deaf either because he took Oxycontin and or Viagra in large amounts. Maybe it was both of them combined that did it?

    Amazing how we can agree so closely on some things and differ so much on others.

    Since when is appointing blacks to high level cabinet posts or appointing them to the Supreme Court.."whoring them out".....
    Should they not only be getting jobs that keep them out of the public spotlight....Important, high level leadership roles in an administration is now "whoring them out"......
