In a recent television interview, former Vice President Dick Cheney endorsed Rush Limbaugh over Colin Powell, saying that in terms of being a Republican, he’d go with Limbaugh. This statement by Dick Cheney really hit a nerve. Why, some might ask.
Well, it is simple. Let’s dissect Colin Powell’s service to his country, as opposed to Rush Limbaugh’s.
First, Powell earned an MBA from George Washington University after his second tour in Vietnam. He was a captain, then was promoted to major while serving in Vietnam. He also served in South Korea and in Frankfort, Germany. He assisted in the 1983 invasion of Grenada and the 1986 airstrike in Libya.
Ronald Reagan selected him as head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He went to second lieutenant in 1958 and to general on April 4, 1989. Today, he is a four-star general. He also served as secretary of state under George Bush.
Now, let’s review Rush Limbaugh’s record. First, he enrolled at Southeast Missouri State after high school and dropped out after only two semesters. His mother said, “He flunked everything, even dance class.” Basically, that’s it. He then became a radio guy.

“When I hear Rush Limbaugh and others calling Colin Powell a ‘liberal’ I just have to laugh because there is nothing liberal about Colin Powell’s approach towards foreign policy,” he said. “So what is a conservative? A conservative conserves taxpayer dollars. A conservative doesn’t engage in military adventurism. A conservative doesn’t add seven trillion dollars to entitlement programs that are already going bankrupt. A conservative shows restraint.”
