Powell wont take Responsibility!
Powell is just like Obama, never take Responsibility for Screwups!
Just wondering if Powell is also a member of Reverend Wrights’ Trinity U.C.C. Congregation!
I suspected as much back in August, when Kristol tried to smoke Powell out on endorsing Obama. It's too bad that story became one of whether Powell would speak at the D. convention, which probably never was in the cards.
I would not be surprised if Powell privately pledged his support to Obama a long time ago, and the campaign team has simply been waiting for what they judged to be the most effective moment to roll out the endorsement. That's how it generally goes with political endorsements - the campaign team asks the endorser to wait until the moment judged most useful to the campaign.
Correct, my friend, he was commander of ground forces in the Gulf War.
Then, because he was not included “in the loop” by Cheney and Bush to the degree he would have liked in planning for the current Iraq engagement, he became jealous and turned on them once he stepped down as SECSTATE.
Well, I wonder what Condi has to say about her mentor? Will she follow suit?
Most important of all, your point that we have a former General giving our troops over to the likes of O’Bammy as their CIC, makes my head spin. And it makes me wonder how sincerely military and certainly patriotic, Powell EVER was.
Maybe he is an idiot. He certainly didn’t arrive at this view through intelligence. I didn’t see his complaints about mentioning Ayers. If it was in this video I missed it. I could only stomach about a minute and a half. How do people who live their life being responsible and reap the rewards of that still believe it is OK for others to intentionally live as victims? I don’t get it.
Maybe he’s been under cover all the time and going to push Islam with his “boy.”
No, I didn’t catch it but I have a hunch after watching him this a.m.
Sorry, gotta go, paying for online time here.
I just wanta say if Bush and Rove hadn’t made their play for the hispanic vote by allowing unprecedented flood of illegals, we wouldn’t be in this mess re the election or the economy. That’s just between you and me:o).
I won’t tell another soul. ;^)
Are there any bridges left that CP hasnt burned ?
Obama is for ripping little babies to pieces, in the name of "choice" and "convenience".
Colon is for ripping little babies to pieces, in the name of "choice" and "convenience".
"You can easily judge a man's character by how he treats those who can do nothing for him." The unborn cannot vote. Angry, post-abortive women and the men who knocked them up can. Birds of a feather...
“Powell said that as he watched McCain, the Republican was a little unsure as to how to deal with the economic problems that we were having, and almost every day, there was a different approach to the problem, and that concerned me, sensing that he didn’t have a complete grasp of the economic problems that we had.”
Powell makes no sense. McCain is the one who first proposed to suspend campaigning to work out solution. Obama came along to see if he could be effective.
I didn’t see the interview but did Brokaw take issue with Powell’s crticism of Palin’s lack of experience, and how Powell was able to reconcile Obama’s lack of experence, and Obama is the one actually running?
Powell is looking to exorcise some demons and what he believes is 4,000 american soldier deaths on his watch, due to his UN speech.
It is all about jumping aboard the race bus for an “electrifying” possibility of a psuedo black man (with 1/2 Kenyan blood) who engaged in political carpetbagging in Chicago, to emerge from the Land of Abraham Lincoln. I’m sure in some liberal corners such a story is almost biblical in its portrayal.
Did someone catch what was more important to the african american community between a the character of a presidential candidate and the economy? Character was way low on the totem pole. It’s not about whether you get caught getting yours,...it’s about getting yours.
I have NEVER been to a blog site that was full of so many retarded backwards (most likely inbred )racist , ignorant people and I wouldn’t have believed it had I not stumbled across it. I don’t normally go on the internet to insult anyone but you people take the cake. I feel sorry for your children.
Enjoy your new taxes, f’tard. Tell me about your children in the re-education camps, we’ll have time to kill when we’re unemployed.
I’m glad someone in this campaign cycle got an endorsement from a member of the Bush administration.
>> Colin Powell has seen the evils of communism first hand. He would never endorse someone who plans to spread the wealth, communist style. <<
I guess he let his desire to be part of the “hood” override his judgement.
You’re wrong about Gen. Norman Schwartzkopf..I have him on tape telling us why going to Baghdad in ‘91 would’ve been a big mistake..he used the words “dinosaur in a tarpit”..which sorta sounds like where we’re at now.
You think we’re getting our money’s worth over there?
My mistake then on Norm wanting to finish the job. We should have done it then and saved the world a bunch of hurt. I think the cost of freedom is incalculable. If I were in charge there would have been some REAL shock and awe...not the politically correct crap that was executed so the USA wouldn’t look bad...PC got some of our men killed over there.
Fallujah would have been flattened after giving a 24 hour warning. Then a couple of MOAB’s later, the bulldozers would have leveled out the sand heaps...NEXT!
Powell is a nothing piece of crap.
