WASHINGTON (AP) Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, a longtime Republican, is sticking with President Barack Obama in this years election.
He tells CBS This Morning he respects Mitt Romney but thinks hes been vague on many issues.
Speaking of Obama, Powell said the president got the United States out of Iraq and has laid out a plan for leaving Afghanistan and didnt get us into any new wars.

Hmmm...should I vote for the white man or the black man?
Go away “colin-oscopy”
No, because they are both liberals.
Let’s start a list:
To: all the best
Romney’s first act as president should be to appoint him as ambassador to Lybia.

I was wondering when he would weigh in.
What a waste.

(Newt (sigh) what could have been . . .)
My uncle, a West Point grad with lots of shiny metal things on his uniform (including stars), told me 20+ years ago that Colon is an arsehole.
Gotta give Colon props for being a consistent POS!
Yup. Mulatto favoring the mulatto. Nothing to see here.

He fell in love in 2008. He was "convinced" by the mantras Hopenchange and Yeswecan. He was "convinced" by "specifics" like "fundamentally change America" and "change and hope for a better future."
Powell is either stupid, or he is down with a brother.

Just think, there was a time when he was considered the savior of the Republican party. The RATS can have him.
Powell is a bitter guy.
This was basically a FU to the republican establishment. He could care less about Obama.
Surrenders what (if any) remaining credibility he had
Why did this guy ever claim to ba a Republican?
Or maybe its not a skin thing- maybe he’s a closet commie?

“Just think, there was a time when he was considered the savior of the Republican party. The RATS can have him.”
I wonder why he doesn’t officially join the RATS, since fatuously supporting Obama makes him a RAT in everything but name.
From one affirmative action poster boy to another.

“Why did this guy ever claim to ba a Republican?”
Expediency? In his day, RAT-ness was a career liability.
The GOP is long overdue for a Colonoscopy. Just stop the charade and join the Democrat-Socialist Party.
