Dang I just saw this on the news. Covid got him at 84. The anchor went on to saw that basically he voted for Barack twice as a protest against the party because Rumsfeld remained in place. I dumped him after finding out he voted for B O. twice. I guess I could see that once but not twice. Despite my disagreement with him he was a great and humble man, very forgiving, and a true patriot. He authored the idea of “overwhelming prescience “ and is another one of the old school that they broke the mold for. RIP Sir.

Pathetic that some people just have to argue about vaccines at every chance. I respected Powell until he endorsed Obama. Still, he did more good than most politicians. RIP

Dang! Are you shatting me? In a “systemically racist” country one would think that he woulda recognized that he never woulda rose to the stature that he did had this country been racist. Go figure.

LOL.


I'm sure him being 84 and not having the ability to fight infections due to having blood cancer had nothing to do with it.

Nope, not one bit. TBH killed him because we were all too busy just being ignorant rednecks.

Once upon a time he had my respect, but lost that when he chose to support Obunghole, not once, but twice. And then on top of that, he became a bitter, race bait spewing, libturd. Now, he's just another old dead guy, in my book.....

I could actually see someone his age having that sentiment. He was born in '37, lived through the civil rights era and in many ways succeeded in a culture that was not always his advocate. I wouldn't share that feeling with someone my age but they/we have been blessed to grow up in a vastly different culture with regard to race. Now he was from and grew up in NYC so its not like he was in the Jim Crow south but I can still understand a man his age looking back and feeling that way to some extent.

I heard him speak right after he was out of the the Bush administration, at that time I thought he was was one of the most intelligent and non-political leaders I had ever heard speak, it gave me confidence in the people running the country and I would have been confident in him serving in any capacity for this country. Then in the coming years all I heard from him was divisive political speak, I'm not sure what changed for him, perhaps the WMD / Iraq blame game, perhaps he was shunned from the Republican party leadership, I have no idea.
Hard to imagine it was the same guy I had had so much respect and admiration for.
I hate he passed, my prayers sent for his family. I believe while he served this country, he did so with honor and dignity and his family deserves our sincere condolences.

Since he grew up in the era it would make perfect sense to never vote for a white democrat for sure

Is this like the women's gymnastics thread? Yes, his life was a complete waste bc he voted for Obama... A bunch of yall are a real pieces of work. He severed our country, gave his thoughts and ideals, and made it. He was extremely successful and boy does that eat the green screen radicals lunch.

He made the case for the Iraq war on a false premise....which killed and maimed tens of thousands of our best.....so why don't you check your own brakes. No-one said a **** thing about his success only that he turned out to be a radical and was disappointing.
