A.W.R. Hawkins takes Colin Powell to task in Human Events
Posted by Liberty on December 18, 2008
Bravo Mr. Hawkins. Just in case you missed it, Colin Powell was highly critical of Rush Limbaugh in an interview on CNN. At one point he said, “Can we continue to listen to Rush Limbaugh?” Mr. Powell, thank God more people listen to Rush than listen to you!
A.W.R. Hawkins’ article contrasting Powell’s political perspective with Limbaugh’s is terrific.
“Powell, like former Bush speech writer Michael Gerson, wants to remake conservatism into something without form or substance, something that is liberalism in all but name. They say the only conservatism that can be effective in future elections is conservatism divorced from conservative principles.
Powell and Gerson — and too many other phony conservatives — are the problem, not the solution. It was by their philosophy and political strategy that the Republican Party ended up abandoning conservatism in favor of McCainism. And that was the path to failure, not victory. “
