(Newser) – Colin Powell said this weekend that he wasn't all that sure about voting for President Obama this election, but Rush Limbaugh says that's a load of hooey, reports ThinkProgress. When it comes down to it, the "titular head of the Republican party, the ideal model Republican" will vote for the Democrat, says Limbaugh, because "melanin is thicker than water, folks. And that's what'll happen."

Rush Limbaugh is insignificant. Adolph Hitler accomplished more.

Doesn't matter who Powell votes for,because other races of people are the ones who put obama in office. Blacks make up 13% of the population(that includes babies/children/teens,the imprisoned,homeless etc.who can't vote and/or won't vote,which means black registered voters are very very small percentage. Ps there are also historically die hard black republicans believe it or not.

Again, Rush is right. And of course, how dare he point out the racism which runs rampant on the left...
