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 wouldnt trust Powell in the slightest. He says hes 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.
Should Cain become the candidate, colon’s gonna have to make a real decision.
I guess he is just waiting to see if he is a good president or not...
dumbass affirmative-action general.
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.
Does anyone other than Sunday talk show hosts care? I know I don’t.
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....
Yep, he’ll vote for 0bama on “reflectivity criteria”.
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.
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.
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!!!
Powell showed like Oprah that color comes first and he will pull that lever for his pal and I have no doubt of that.
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.
Here’s a little secret about Gen. Powell: He restores old Volvos.
Yup. Old Volvos.
Just shows the difference between dummycrats and RINOs: dummycrats wind up in the White House and RINOs wind up with a huge embarassment . . . Colon Powell.
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.
Powell is simply a high profile racist.
Does anyone other than Sunday talk show hosts care? I know dont.
I’ll betcha that Chrissie Mathews cares!
I’m in complete agreement with you.
Who cares...Powell’s lost to me anyway.
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.
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.
Herman Cain needs to pay a visit to these jive talkin' turkeys and tell them to man-up.
as one affirmative action hire to another affirmative action president,
i’m sure he’ll find his way to vote for obama.
Nice graphic, but I hate cannibalism, preserved or not.
Colin Powell is irrelevant........
Guess who wants a cabinet post and thinks he got taken for granted by a racist president last election.
Fine, vote for Orca.
Just leave the rest of us alone.
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.
“has not yet decided” BS...he’ll vote for BO.
It’s a natural thing with Colon.
“After much prayer and soul searching I feel sure Colin will manage to pull that Democratic lever.”
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.
Powell has no credibility. The only public speaking gig he should be able to get is doing infomercials for adult diapers.
Repub Party needs Colinectomy.
Repub Party needs Colinectomy.
Repub Party needs Colinectomy.
|Powell hasn't de-cide-did? I've de-cide-did. I'm not supporting O-ba-ma.|
If you want off my ping list get over it!
