Colin Powell Challenges Bill O’Reilly

To quote Bossip, Colin Powell is a “G” and may be the spark needed to rejuvenate the GOP. More details after the jump.

Regarded as one of the greatest men in American history, Colin Powell is challenging members of his own party and defending it at the same time. Often regarded as “the one who could save the Republican Party,” it is refreshing to note that the former Secretary of State feels that it’s important to be honest about what’s best for America.

To prove it, the retired four-star general asked a hard question directly to Fox talking head, Bill O’Reilly. During the interview, Powell was asked to defend his positions, especially his decision to endorse President Barack Obama. Powell refused to take the bait and offered a more nuanced take on O’Reilly’s position.
