Powell was a washed-out, one-star, incompetent Affirmative Action general, until Pres. Ronald Reagan rescued him, and Reagan and presidents George H.W. Bush and Bush II made him chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, National Security Advisor and Secretary of State. The GOP was even eager to make Powell the nation’s first black president, but he chickened out, on the orders of his wife, Alma, and showed his gratitude by excoriating the 1996 national GOP convention in a racist speech.
When Powell served under King George II, he betrayed Bush by leaking like a sieve to Democrat Washington Post operative Bob Woodward, who had been one of the criminal conspirators who toppled the Nixon presidency.
Powell owes everything to the GOP, but black “Republicans” are about as reliable as Hispanic “Republicans.”
