No more questions after Powell endorsement, says Biden

From CNN Political Producer Alexander Marquardt

TACOMA, Washington (CNN) – Joe Biden thanked Colin Powell for endorsing Barack Obama Sunday, saying that with his choice of Obama over John McCain, questions about the Illinois senator’s ability to be commander-in-chief will be put to rest.

“From the very beginning, this Republican party has tried to suggest that Barack Obama, Senator Barack Obama, wasn’t ready to be commander-in-chief,” said the Delaware senator to more than 11,000 supporters in a minor league ballpark, his biggest crowd to date when campaigning without Obama.

“With all the three and four star generals, with the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the former National Security Adviser, the former Secretary of State, one of the most respected men who have ever worn the uniform, endorsing Barack Obama over John McCain today, no more questions! Barack Obama will be a commander-in-chief we can all respect!”

Biden later noted that an agreement between the US and Iraq on a timetable for withdrawal of US troops is close to being signed, something Obama has long called for.

“John McCain talks about leadership,” said Biden, “Let me remind you, whose idea was that? Barack Obama's. John McCain's the only odd man out now, along with Governor Palin.”

The mere thought of Obama being commander of our troops is enough to make me vomit. It is unthinkable. He doesn’t know the first thing about honor.

Powell obviously believes in the ultimate affirmative action - if you’re a black President it’s ok to accuse the soldiers of air-raiding villages, etc. etc. Of course BO should be held to a lower standard - he’s black, and he means well. /s

I’m not surprised that Powell has endorsed a Chicago street thug over a real American hero either. “How ‘bout some ‘blow’ General? Then we’ll go help ACORN register some more ‘voters’.”

And yet Palin routinely pulls double that number all day long.

The WISH there were no more questions about Obama’s character and associations with this endorsement, but it doesn’t matter to most Americans, because everyone knows it’s about race.
EVERYONE knows it.

By Biden’s logic-if RuPaul, the black transvestite endorses Shabazz Obama,
does that now make Obama a transvestite ??

I am disappointed in Powell, but feel this says more about him and his issues than it does about McCain. Too bad the media is going to go ballistic on this. Thanks Colin. God Bless America.

Look, I’ve always thought Powell was little more than a face of “diversity” put out there to fulfill a quota to keep the media wolves at bay.

Today only confirmed who he really is.

So did Obama get a job overnight, ACORN is not hiring are they, or did some racist endorse him? Neither changes the fact Obama has no experience, other than playing some street thug in Chcago and is totally unqualified for the job.

Why do they have to try and say this at this late time, are there lingering doubts?

Yes I said it, Powell endorsed Obama because of race.

.....questions about the Illinois senator’s ability to be commander-in-chief will be put to rest.
:::::::::::
Sorry Joe, but you are showing your total stupidity, your disdain for any intelligence in the American public, and your ignorance that Powell, in any way, can CHANGE WHAT OBAMA IS, AND IS NOT, is beyond a living lie.

And Joe, I do not believe that Powell said that Obama was qualified to be C-in-C. He endorsed him...that is all. Take note Joe. The informed and alert sector of the voting public did.....

This is an excellent critique of the Powell-Obama endorsement, showing how little sense it makes.... from stillright.com

First, Powell praised Obama for his economic plan in the same interview during which he blamed McCain for supposedly abandoning Republican principles. But Powell did not specify what he liked about Obama’s economic plan, and if I were doing the interview I would have asked “What exactly do you like about Obama’s economic plan, a plan whose cornerstone is a tax increase? And how is Obama’s proposed tax hike anything other than a typical liberal Democrat idea? And isn’t McCain’s plan for a tax cut completely consistent with conservative free-market ideals? And isn’t McCain’s tax cut right out of the Reagan playbook? Why do you think it’s a good idea to raise taxes (in the midst of an economic downturn) on the most succesful companies and people in the US? Aren’t those people and those companies in the best position to expand and create jobs?”

Sorry, Biden, but I can question Obambi’s utter lack of experience all I want. Powell's endorsement proves nothing save for Powell is more obsessed with melanin than qualifications.

Oh, let’s just forget the election and anoint him King already!

It’s clear the majority of Americans have lost the ability to think and want Barack to take care of their every need. Let’s just get on with it!

Unless Powell has become a socialist, his endorsement is purely on the basis of race, in my opinion.

Regardless, it will be interesting to see how his “side-switching” plays out in the polls.

I doubt if it sways voters to Obama because the race vote is with him already.

Rather, it could cause some voters to break towards McCain as the racial tones of Powell's endorsement can be construed as offensive.

Net, net, considering Powell's recent history of less than steady beliefs, McCain may grab a point or so in the next polling data.

Powell is one of the 93% of blacks who refuse to vote for the white candidate. So what? Wouldn’t it be a bigger story if he was in the 7% of blacks that support the more qualified candidate instead of being blinded by race? If Iraq is the Democrat issue of this time,they consider Powell WRONG ,correct?

Did Brokejaw ask about his not coming forward and spill the beans on Richard Armitage while he let Scooter Libby hang out to dry? Now to support a fellow black in hopes of getting a job he climbs from under his rock.
He’s wrong now too, so what?

But his endorsement is not racist.

Yes, and the sun will rise in the west tomorrow.

Clown Powell showed us his true colors with his endorsement of this communist weasel. He just spit in the face of the military he supposedly cares about.

“The mere thought of Obama being commander of our troops is enough to make me vomit.”

Don’t worry, it is not an issue. Obama, Murtha, and Harry Reid will order them to surrender and they will all go to prison camps.

An the world and UN will at last love us!
