Rush responds to General Powell:

General Powell says we need to reach out to Hispanic, blacks, and Asians.  Well, how do we do that?  What kind of message does he suggest?  I never hear the “how” to do it.  I just hear we need to do it.  And in my mind, we already have the blueprint for how to do it.  We have done it successfully.  We abandoned the blueprint.  It’s called individual freedom, liberty, and not seeing them as Hispanics and not seeing them as Asians and not seeing them as blacks or minorities, but rather seeing them as Americans, human beings. Liberals look at people and groupify them and then think of them with contempt. I mean are all black people identical thinkers, if we understand what one of them thinks we know how to get to all of them, is that true?  Same thing with Asians? Same thing with Hispanics?  General Powell has no vision.  He is not in touch with the public in any meaningful way.  He’s a Washingtonian.  He’s not in touch with the public.  He lives in a bubble so he doesn’t have to expose himself to contrary arguments.  He just has to accept accolades from the people he treasures and values most, his buddies and the media.  He doesn’t add anything to the public discussion.  What has he added to the public discussion?  What has he done to advance a principle? He is constantly peddling his identity and his reputation rather than anything substantive or insightful.
