Colin Powell: Two Groups Are Responsible For The Poisonous Tone in Washington-- The Tea Party, and the Media (For Featuring the Tea Party In Its Coverage)

Not mentioned: Democrats. Obama. Schumer. The Occupy movement.

Or the media, as bitterly partisan cheerleaders for more government spending.

The media's sole sin, in the eyes of Colin Powell, is that they are too goshdarn ratings-baiting, and are therefore driven to cover "extreme" movements like the Tea Party.

Note that while Powell makes an obligatory "fairness" reference to the extreme left, he goshdarn just can't seem to actually name a figure or group on the extreme left.

He only has eyes for the Tea Party, those scoundrels.

CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR, HOST: What about this tone in the country right now? It's still very divisive. It's still very sort of brash, some say poisonous. I mean, you can barely get anything done on Capitol Hill, just behind me there. What needs to be done, to actually improve the tone and the ability of people to work together?

COLIN POWELL: The tone is not -- is not good right now, and our political system here in Washington, particularly up on The Hill -- Congress -- has become very, very tense in that two sides, Republicans and Democrats, are focusing more and more on their extreme left and extreme right. And we have to come back toward the center in order to compromise.

...

And so we have got to find a way to start coming back together. And let me say this directly.The media has to help us. The media loves this game, where everybody is on the extreme. It makes for great television. It makes for great chatter. It makes for great talk shows all day long with commentators commenting on commentators about the latest little mini-flap up on Capitol Hill.

So what we have to do is sort of take some of the heat out of our political life in terms of the coverage of it, so these folks can get to work quietly.

What he means is that the Professional Political Class should be free again to do what they've done for fifty years, which is ignore a very sizable chunk of the public -- a plurality, maybe, and, by some generous estimates, a majority -- and do what the media would like them to do, which is to spend more and more every year.

Jumbo Jogging Shrimp sent over this satirical poem from 1949.

1949poem.gif

Echoes the debate today, does it not?

Consider that the media constantly endeavors to paint the Tea Party as making some unreasonable, unprecedented demands of the politicians who represent it.

Is this true? Are the worries about creeping socialism, a bloated and evergrowing government constantly seeking to expand its spending and its privileges, the theft of tax money from the productive and the encouragement of sloth in the nonproductive new, unprecedented worries?

It would appear not.

Note that in the intervening years, government grew. And grew and grew and grew some more. And then, lately, grew at such a rate of speed as to cause the loss of the country's AAA credit rating.

Why would the basic temperament of the American citizen, which has always been concerned about government spending, recede as government grew to heretofore undreamt-of levels?

It must be noted that, as a first step, the Tea Party is not demanding the government shrink to 1949 levels. Or 1964 levels. Or 1971 levels. Or even 1983 levels.

What we're looking to do is get government back to the size it was in, say, 2007.

You know, when the Democrats controlled Congress.

Or, dare to dream, to 1998 levels, when Lord God of All That Is Good And Reasonable Bill Clinton was writing budgets.

Was the nation unreasonably callous and cruel in 1998? Were people starving in the streets?

No, of course not.

And yet the media, and its political arm, the Democratic Party, behave as if the Tea Party is suggesting a rollback to 1922, when in fact they're suggesting a rollback to the budgets of the Democrat's once and now again favorite president, Bill Clinton.

And lets not forget it was Powell who talked Bush1 into ending Gulf War 1 way to early and before any effort was made to get rid of Saddam the first time. Not to mention the absurd rules of that cease fire which allowed the Iraqis to still fly their choppers and slaughter the Shiites in Southern Iraq which still haunts us to this day.

As for being shocked/disappointed that Colin Powell voted for Obama - have any of these people grown up around blacks? The hatred, resentment and distrust of Republicans in general and The White Man in specific is pathological. And before you pull your contrary examples out, ask yourself what percentage of the black community they represent.

Also, people wrongly assume that because the military polls majority conservative that the trend extends to the flag ranks. Not so. These are career government bureaucrats, especially Powell's peer group. For the most part, fire-pissers and ass-kickers top out around O-5 or O-6.

47 Mr. Powell earned reputation for organization and military affairs are impeccable. His reputation also earned for politics and foreign affairs is very sad. His comments about the current situation in Washington is naïve, thinking that he can blame all of the corruption and poor judgment by the politician on the “Tea Party” and the “media”.
I am sure that he will enjoy an increase in popularity from those same inept politicians but he hurts his credibility in the real world. A very poor choice to make for Mr. Powell’s reputation and standing.

53 I almost met Gen. Powell once. Right after the first Gulf War, he visited my college ROTC battalion and a couple of my Pershing Rifle cadets got an opportunity to have their picture taken with him and do the usual meet and greet. I kicked myself for not being around the offices that day and missing a chance to meet the co-superstar of the Gulf War.

Now...I don't regret it at all. Fuck you General.

54 I lost respect for Colin Powell during the first Gulf War when instead of letting Storming Norman do his job he actually stopped him from doing it. If Powell got out of the way then there may not have been a need for another Gulf war. Everything he has done since just compounded his folly.

60 Mentioned in the intro to the poem is the "pie for everybody" speech Truman gave on November 3, 1949. Here it is.

Obama's could load it in his teleprompter and read it to the adoring media this morning, complete with the usual "there are only two paths -- mine and the cruel heartless plutocrats" strawmen.

BTW, in 1949, when Harry was dreaming mighty dreams about growing a welfare state, there was but one functioning economy in the world. Ours. Britain had only just ended rationing of flour and clothes and the end of rationing for fruit, gasoline and soap were still a year away. It was not until 1952 that ationing of sugar, butter ended and not until 1954 that rationing of meat and bacon came to an end. Astonishing to think that Britain instituted cradle to grave healthcare in 1948 when the British people still could not buy basic food staples and clothing without a government ticket. Or, maybe its not so astonishing. If the government is rationing your bacon, its not such a big leap to accept it rationing your health care.

Gotta disagree here, and my sample cuts across socio-economic lines...though I will admit that we're talking about urban/suburban blacks in the NYC and DC metro areas (including two sets of in-laws - one UMC professional, the other blue-collar skilled tradespeople.) I worship and am active in a predominantly (as in 99.5%) black church. The people I knowarefair-minded and though they're more likely to be Democrat than Republican (we do have more than a few), they're pretty conservative as a rule.

72 Well, there's a reason why Powell has lost so much steam over the years. He's sucking up to the very people who'd call him an uncle Tom and accusing him of being a baby killer. He's pissing all over people who once respected him and considered him a jewel of the Republican party. He's a self important chump who can't see what a fool the other side has made of him because he considers his own side over run with embarrassing riff raff.

It's sad.

He even picked Obama as a rational centrist solution to America's problems and it got him NOTHING. The country is still divided. The tone is still angry. hell, now it is is even angrier. Now he can't bring himself to admit that Obama was a horrible crooked bumbling failure who's malpractice will leave scars on the country for at least a decade.

The man is reduced to a proud fool who sits on a mountain of twisted illusion to elevate himself from the masses who clearly saw what he missed. He wants to be a martyr. He wants to be seen as the last smart guy in the Republican party. Instead the left treats him with the usual destructive tone of contempt because they recognize in him the pungent desperate smell given off by the useful idiot.

Poor Powell.

If Powell suddenly had an epiphany and started endorsing the Tea Party, speaking out against big government and in favor of conservative policies, you can guaran-damn-tee that all of the fawning media coverage he gets would end immediately, and any time he would be interviewed or quoted, he would be treated like a hostile witness in a courtroom trial.

83 Empire of Jeff is spot on. Ever notice how many retired flag officers end up on a Dem ticket? It seems these dudes really get to liking telling others how to live and when they retire, what party tries to do that more than the Dems? Just my observation guess but at the O5/O6 level, you're still close enough to the troops to see and feel the effects up close of commie style policies that come from on high. (such as not being allowed to have personal weapons on a military installation without a TON of paperwork and red tape).
It can be disheartening to say the least.
