So, Dick Cheney backs off his comments about General Colin Powell and the Republican Party. But, Powell has never been a particularly good GOP party man and everyone knows it. This aspect of his career has nothing to do with his moderate social views on abortion or whatever.
If General Powell was so interested in promoting the big tent in the Republican Party why hasn’t he recruited a whole bunch of moderate Republicans and used his celebrity status to raise tons of money for them so they could win Congressional or Senate seats? How about mentoring some African-American Republican candidates?
No, General Powell is a great American but a good Republican Party activist he has not been.
The GOP is happy to have Colin Powell as a member but how about some reciprocation General?
