Former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell on Thursday endorsed Barack Obama in his bid for re-election, citing the Democratic president's efforts to wind down the war in Afghanistan and tackling terrorism.
"And so I think we ought to keep on the track that we are on," the Republican, who also backed Obama in 2008, told "CBS This Morning."

Endorses a president amidst the biggest foreign policy scandal in history.
All about race.
Duh! The famous O.J. jury logic. “ I be black, He be black, He be innocent”
Incompetence promoting incompetence.
To quote Chester A. Riley: “What a revolting development this is!”
Ugh. General Powell, give me a break.
Rumor has it that Colon was an AA success.
RACE before COUNTRY!
you have to laugh at this - and they accuse Herman Cain and Allen West of being “house negroes” - this one stayed right on the color/race wagon........also amusing how everything Bush is reviled, yet this is broadly embraced
That’s nice Colin, but I’ll take comfort in the fact that no one with any sense gives a rat’s rear about whom you endorse.
Can anyone identify any specific major accomplishments Powell achieved, other than being named to high positions in his military and diplomatic careers? IMO, he has AA written all over him.
Tackling terrorism? He’s embracing it! I guess Colin Powell is not a wise man.
Stupid is as stupid does.
Completely irrelevant. The same effect as having Jimmy Carter endorse Odumbo.
Reagan’s biggest mistake - giving this worthless douchebag a boost.
lather, rinse, repeat...nothing new here. Would have been shocked if he woke up and endorsed Romney over the mistake.
What do you expect from a fellow Affirmative-American?
Pray for America
I honestly thought he’d just keep quiet and not make an endorsement at all.
After he did this dance/comedy routine when he was Secretary of State under Bush, I thought he was a complete jerk. Never saw him the same way again.
One “Affirmative Action” FRAUD “endorsing ANOTHER “Affirmative Action” FRAUD”!
no hardball questions tossed on embassy attack.
