Obama Czar Rattner: Colin Powell Feels ‘Hostility’ From GOP Because He’s Black
By Mark Finkelstein:
Oh those racist Republicans. Did you know that they’re hostile to Colin Powell because he’s black? Yup, just ask former Obama car czar Steve Rattner. The Morning Joe regular today claimed that poor Powell “feels this hostility toward him from the rest of the party in part because he’s a minority.”
Really? Colin Powell feels hostility from “the rest of the party” because he’s a minority? The Colin Powell for whom so many in the GOP were clamoring to run for president in 1995-96? The Powell who actually won the 1996 New Hampshire primary—as a write-in!—after he had withdrawn his name from consideration? That Colin Powell? Please. View the video after the jump.
