Colin Powell reportedly defended Obama supreme court nominee Sonja Sotomayor saying that she has,
"an open and liberal bent of mind, but that's not disqualifying."
In so saying, Powell has revealed that he himself is a defender of the liberal definition of affirmative action and the "reverse racism" (read racial prejudice against people who happen to have white skin) policies of the Democrats. Therefore, even if Powell has a GOP voter registration card, it means that he is just attempting to fool everyone, including himself.
It is apparent that in his heart, Powell believes in Democrat policies, and supports the Democrat liberal agenda and cares not for the preservation of the Constitution as the Founders intended.
He therefore has no respect for a bunch of "dead white guys", or their design for a fair and just constitutional republic, and he has no respect for the rule of law or equal protection, or the supremacy of Constitution law. He supports the Democratic ideology that some groups of people deserve special privileges and protection over other groups of people on the basis of skin color, and that if it takes corrupt judges to preserve those privileges, then so be it.
Powell is a de facto Democrat. There can be no doubt anymore.
