Colin Powell - Blames Media And Tea Party

Colin Powell Blames Media and
Tea Party for Divisive Tone in Washington



News Busters -- 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."


Blog author's comments - If the Republicans don't compromise and do what the Democrats want, it's because of the Tea Party? I would hope the GOP will no longer always concede to what the Democrats want for our country.

Colin Powell may say he is a member of the Republican Party but he supported and voted for Obama in 2008 and I believe he will vote for him in 2012.

Compromise should never require citizens to turn a blind eye to out-of-control spending or corrupt leadership.
