What's Happening In Your World
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell has been very critical of the G.O.P. since leaving public life, and he leveled a bit more criticism at the GOP during his appearance on ‘Meet the Press’ on Sunday. “The Republican party needs to take a very hard look at itself and understand that the country has changed” said Powell. What specific views does Powell take issue with? According to Powell, climate change, taxes, and racism are on the top of the list of issues which render Republicans unpalatable to much of the American electorate.  Powell says  the party has a “dark vein of intolerance” running through it and “if they don’t change” along with America’s changing demographics, “they are going to be in trouble.” When asked why he was still a Republican, Powell says it has a lot to do with the way he was raised, but added that “the Republican party right now is having an identity problem.” Powell continued, saying the GOP “still looks down on minorities” and blasted Sarah Palin for her “shuck and jive” comments about President Obama last year. He also took issue with their use of the word “lazy” to describe President Obama. “Why do senior Republican leaders tolerate this kind of discussion within the party?” he asked. Powell says the GOP must begin to decide what it actually stands for. “If it’s just going to represent the far right-wing of the political spectrum, I think the party is in difficulty,” he said.
