    I assume the cartoon is referring to Cheney's remarks about Rush and Colin Powell. I am not a fan of Rush but even less a fan of anyone who would vote for a vicious baby killer, born or unborn like obama.

    At least she's an equal opportunity attacker unlike the original poster.

    What is his point anyway?

    This just looks like another Crabtownboy drive-by.

    Start a thead with no comment on his own link and then contribute nothing more.

    I respect Rush Limbaugh, but am not a big fan of his. I find his talk show informative though. I don't like Colin Powell though. I wasn't surprised when he said he was going to vote for Obama. He was by no means a conservative.

    Do we forget Collin Powell's sacrifice and war hero status simply because he voted for the other guy? Does that mean one can only be a patriotic American if they vote the way you do?

    As for abortion OR, I recall hearing Powell saying he was pro-life even if the mother is in danger. I don't think you can be more pro-life than that. If you recall what he said when he announced his support for Obama, he was chased away from the right. He didn't voluntarily leave.

    I heard that he was not pro-life, but I can't find a source right now. Anyone know for sure??

    Another thing about Colin Powell is that he also supports affirmative action too, which is another word for legalized descrimination.

    Colin Powell might have had respectable military service, but that doesn't mean I have to agree with him or support his decisions. John McCain also experienced "sacrifice". I didn't vote for him either.

    Who questioned Collin Powell's war sacfice or patriotism?

    Collin Powell is PRO-CHOICE.

    Don't make things up just to make yourself feel better.

    More pointless prattle.

    "Does that mean one can only be a patriotic American if they vote the way you do?"

    Not necessarily. But, I will say, imo, that socialism in unpatriotic. It is an un-American idea. We used to the be United States of America but we are rapidly becoming The Socialists States of America. Sad!
