Colin Powell Not Yet Decided on Supporting Obama Re-Election in 2012 Video 8/28/11
freedomslighthouse.net ^ | 8-29-11

Posted on 08/29/2011 9:35:30 AM PDT by Justaham

Here is video of Gen. Colin Powell on Face the Nation today where he said he has not yet decided on supporting President Obama for re-election in 2012.

After what Powell did to John McCain in 2008, I wouldn’t trust Powell in the slightest. He says he’s looking to see the most qualified candidate, yet he voted for Barack Obama in 2008 knowing he did not know squat that would qualify him for the office. The last 2 1/2 years have shown Powell made a terrible mistake.

Be sure that he will decide – with great fanfare – in the closing days of 2012 to support Obama just to try and give him a boost.

After much prayer and soul searching I feel sure Colin will manage to pull that Democratic lever.

Mark my words, in October 2012, Powell will firmly declare that the Republican nominee (whoever it is) is simply too extreme and therefore because of this Powell announce his support and endorsement for Obama. Mark my words.

also in the news, although no less suspenseful, the guy that came up with the one hit wonder “Monster Mash” has not yet announced who he will support for the 2012 elections.

I know that WE dont’ care what Powell thinks...but...he is a good barometer for what the “sophisticated independents” think. It is these fools who gave us obama in the first place. If they bolt, it is going to be very hard for him to be re-elected, and that is, a good thing....

Why? Is there a possibility someone to the left of obama will run as a dim? If not... powell will vote for the kenyan... because powell is a racist marxist pig.

Cover up Colin. I don’t to want see any leg. Not interested. I wouldn’t take it from you if you held a gun to my head.

In other words, I couldn’t care less who Colin Powell endorses.

Colin has been in a rather diligent struggle to seek
“sage” status among the party triangulators. B-0-R-I-N-G.

Colin Powell Not Yet Decided on Supporting Obama Re-Election in 2012

Why Powell supported Obozo is very obvious. Saw the same thing in Obozo that Stevie Wonder did.

We should encourage Powell to launch a Dem primary run against Obama, let hissy fit Mathhews and the others attack Powell. That would be priceless.

In not deciding, with all the evidence of the last two and a half years on the table, Powell has made clear what his decision will be IMHO.

He will continue to support...the man who despises America.

Sad, but true!!! Colin Powell loves and supports African Muslim, POTUS Barack Hussein Obama along with other great anti-Americans, Jeremiah Wright, Louie Farrakhan, Bill Ayres, Sol Alinsky, Valerie Jarrett, Van Jones, Al Sharpton, Maxine Waters, etc. Mr. Powell travels in choice company along with these dedicated Obama lovers and America haters!!!

Like the rest of FR, I simply don’t believe him. Although I don’t think he’s as leftist as Obama, I think he’s already 99% sure that he’d rather have Obama again than have any of the top GOP folks, so only in some hypertechnical sense is Powell telling the truth.

Yup. Old Volvos.

Oh, please. This affirmative-action appointment is gonna' vote for Obambi. Case closed.

As an officer, I had doubts about Mr Powell - lots of smoke, but little fire.

After he announced an endorsement for the Cretin-in-Chief, I knew my suspicions were correct.

Another example of tokenism.

It’s too bad, because I know of any number of blacks who have 1) real, earned academic credentials - as in science, 2) real accomplishments - as in they did it with “preferred” help, and 3) they have enough confidence in themselves to laugh off any real racist out there.

Powel and the Cretin-in-Chief display none of these.

Who cares? Anybody who supported Obama in 2008, or who has blocked investigation into his background, has sent this country down the path to perdition. They don’t even deserve a minute of my time, or attention.

Oh, yeah, Chrissie will pee all over himself if Powell endorses Zero again.

IMHO, Powell has become an embarrassment. He forfeited his honor in the way he covered up for Armitage and silently watched Scooter Libby go to prison for Armitage's actions. Then he forfeited his judgment when he crossed party lines to endorse Barry, whose claim to fame today is he is managing to be an even worse President than Jimmuh.

He should be hiding out in shame instead of pretending anyone cares what he thinks anymore.

A Huntsman/Powell 3rd party ticket might be coming. It would likely attract disaffected Dem 0bama voters thereby reducing 0bama’s chances, but it could also preserve Dems in the House and Senate races.

Does anyone really care what powell votes for since he was so obligated to vote for racism the last time around? Obviously, he’s not as intelligent as he would like us to believe.

He awaits the decision on his support, because the evidence is not clear. There still may be some parts of the US economy that has not yet been destroyed.

So true. He will sustain the soul searching as long as possible and as publically as possible to get the maximum impact for his guy.
