A Moment Of Truth: Extra-Terrestrial Manipulation Of American Politics

Even if he's a RINO, there's only one way that Colon Powel could come up with the craptastic explanation that the Tea Party has poisoned the political environment in Washington,D.C.

 He was abducted by extra-terrestrials who conducted unspeakable experiments on him.

From Newsbusters:

Not surprisingly, neither the class warfare stoked by President Obama and his Party nor the resulting Occupy Wall Street movement was mentioned during this seven minute interview with Christiane Amanpour on ABC's This Week. [transcript follows~ sig94]

CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR, HOST: What about this tone in the country right now? It's still very divisive. It's still very sort of brash, some say poisonous. I mean, you can barely get anything done on Capitol Hill, just behind me there. What needs to be done, to actually improve the tone and the ability of people to work together?

COLIN POWELL: The tone is not -- is not good right now, and our political system here in Washington, particularly up on The Hill -- Congress -- has become very, very tense in that two sides, Republicans and Democrats, are focusing more and more on their extreme left and extreme right. And we have to come back toward the center in order to compromise.
It was decades of compromise that got us here in the first place! Failure to recognize established patterns of political weakness and corruption is one of the primary signs of alien anal probing, usually by a sadistic alien that was itself abused while still a larva.

AMANPOUR: I get your point about heat and light, but what about the fact that, in fact, it is one of the political parties, although -- or rather the big political influence, which is the Tea Party, which quotes left and right the Founding Fathers? They say compromise is a dirty word, and they try to point to the Founding Fathers and the Constitution.

POWELL: They compromised -- the Founding Fathers compromised on slavery. They had to in order to create a country. They compromised on the composition of the Senate, of the House, of the Supreme Court, of a president -- what are the president's powers? Can you imagine more difficult compromises today?

Compromise is how this country was founded, and unless two people in disagreement with each other don't find a way to reach out to one another and make compromises, you don't get a consensus that allows you to move forward.

[...]But the Tea Party point of view of no compromise whatsoever is not a point of view that will eventually produce a presidential candidate who will win.

AMANPOUR: General Powell, thank you very much indeed.

POWELL: Thank you, dear.
And of course when Colon used the example of slavery being behind the success of the Continental Congress he completely ignores the fact that seventy years later it lead to the greatest slaughter of Americans in our nation's history with over two million casualties - the Civil War. Obviously George Washington also compromised with the British at Yorktown as did the General MacAuliffe and the 82nd Airborne with the German Army at Bastogne. When you are at war you do not compromise - and we are at war for the future of our nation.

This entire interview must be the result of a alien cranial/anal inversion procedure performed on both Colon and Christine.

We are no longer foundlings, we are a mature constitutional repubic that has been corrupted by compromise, by the constant, unrelenting tweaking of idiots with so-called good intentions that has finally given birth to Government Gone Wild. And now we know why.

Call it the Martians Revenge. They didn't land in cylinders as H.G. Wells envisioned but they sure as hell rampaged through America.

Yes Colon, the founding fathers compromised and came up with the greatest document in the history of man kind, the Constitution. Your comrades want to destroy it, and we want to stop them. Go back to knitting old war horse blankets you irrelevant boob.

Mark Adams said...

I'll second, Odie on that!!! The founders compromised on how the country should be setup and start it's journey as a newly found republic. NOW however the left (which includes Powel, since he endorsed and voted for Obama) wants us to compromise the very document that limits the governments power over the people.
Not going to happen.

I would have gladly voted for Powell until he pulled his switch. I might have voted for Herman Cain, too, until I saw that he was as ready to play race politics as the liberals. I'm all for Ron Paul at this point, as I was last time for all the good it did.

I am wondering what kind of compromise Gen. Powell had in mind about our out of control spending?

Instead of borrowing 40 cents of every dollar we spend, as Democrats want us to do in perpetuity, the Republicans should accept the compromise of only borrowing 20 cents of every dollar we spend? We will still crash and burn eventually.

That's like compromising with the Taliban:

Mahmoud: 'Death to all infidels. We shall decapitate any who do not bow to Allah.'

Gen. Powell. 'Mahmoud, we should find middle ground to your position. Can you agree to only decapitating 50% of all infidels?'

Mahmoud: 'I'm not sure we can agree to that, Gen. Powell. I will take your proposal and run it by my people, but I can't promise you anything. Still, it's good to try and work this thing out, don't you agree?'
