Posted on 10/31/2012 2:26:42 PM PDT by Clint N. Suhks
In an effort to maximize the benefit of Colin Powell's recent endorsement, the Obama campaign is out with a new radio ad today touting the Republican former Secretary of State's support for the president, highlighting remarks he made in a recent interview with CBS News' Charlie Rose.
The minute-long ad, which according to the campaign will air in Florida, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Virginia, New Hampshire, Ohio, Iowa, Nevada, and Colorado, replays a clip of Powell's October 25 endorsement, which he announced on "CBS This Morning."

he was never really a Republican - then again we have a huge tent
For Colin Powell, skin color simply matters
much, much more than Treason against the USA.
If someone endorsed romney just because he’s white they’d be called a racist.
if someone endorsed Obama just because he is black they’d be called....
The point is to highlight Obama’s bipartisanship, I suppose.
Heh, not going to fool anybody at this point.
Based on his previous four year, is there any doubt how Obama is going to LORD all over us in his imaginary 2nd term?
Many years ago I actually liked this guy....clearly, it is about race for him because we all who know and care about our military know when a Democrat is in the White House the military always loses.......
Colin Powell = RINO extraordinaire!!!
The “optics” here are interesting, IMO.
Colin Powell is black, and yet, you can see right through him. :-)
The poor pooch.
Finished, his prospects are.
>> then again we have a huge tent
No kidding! Once upon a time, it was big enough for Powell, Andrew Sullivan, AND Meghan McCain’s boobs!
Now THAT is a big tent!
Frankly I’m happy they’re all gone and we can downsize.
While I'm sure race enters into the equation, I think Powell's reason for endorsing Obama have more to do with revenge. He felt the Bush administration didn't pay attention to his "moderate" pleas and used him to start the war in Iraq, then tried to saddle him with the blame when it started going bad. And then to add insult to injury they unceremoniously kicked him to the curb after the 2004 election.
Bowell’s endorsement with really impresse political tapeworms.. and intesinal flukes..
And of course Union parasites.. i.e. police, firefighters, teachers..
Following Powell's doctrine, Bammy could'a smite the Jihadists a mighty blow in Benghazi.
Maybe Colon would like to comment on leaving folks behind.......
Powell was a charlatan Republican.
That ought to be good for anther 2 point drop in the polls for the FOREIGNER.
Pow L. Suhks!
I imagine Alma told him to get out of the GOP.
Powell only pretended to be a “Republican” because he thought the novelty of a black “Republican” would bolster his career path. Fact is, that piece of sh!+ has been a Democrat his whole life. He’s a sneaky, selfish bastard who only now feels free to show his true stripes as just another America-hating socialist scumbag.
And he reminds us, supporting a candidate based on pigmentation is just racist. He doesn’t plan to do that, that’s just how it works out.
Thanks Clint N. Suhks.
Whats with these octaroons
Any republican who wants four more years like the last four years should be banned.
I don’t really care if he was a Republican (I can understand why you could hate those creeps in Washington’s inner circle) but I really don’t understand his reasoning.
I always thought he was a mastermind when it comes to fighting a war and here he is - can’t even see the differences in Obama and Romney. I guess either that military training has no effect on political choices or he was just not that smart to begin with.
Sorry, really disappointing - I always though of him as a great hero and thoughtful planner during the war but now question all of our military leaders. If he can think this way, what does that say about other leaders cognitive abilities.
Is this a problem with their education or just a problem with societies expectations?
Globalist, Statist, Plantation Marxist.
To think that I wrote in Colin Powell andNorman Schwartzkopf on my absentee ballot in 1996. What was I thinking?
“let’s just say that Barack knows exactly why I call myself colon instead of Collin.”
Colon is stinkin’ up the Big Tent. It’s time for him to make his Jackass Party membership official.
Treason is defined as Colin Powell. How can anyone who made rank of General, support Obama after the Benghazi murders?
It’s because Obama’s Black. Period. Sununu was right and should say it again.
Mr. Powell. I hope you see GSC's post. You are surely nothing but a moon cricket now. In years gone past, you were one of my heros. No more. Obama is hurting all of us, especially us poor folks, and after 4 years of his policies you still support the guy.
You still claim to be Republican. Really?!?
Obviously there is no honest bone in your body.
I think colin is addicted to being invited to all the cool Washington parties and likes the good life. He knows that he'll be mocked and ridiculed (ie, "whipped") if he kept saying he's a Republican. So, to keep Massa from whipping him anymore, he's decided to support Obama.
Under intense pressure, even a good man breaks.
