I at one time had great respect for this man.
I am forced to admit that he never was who he appeared to be...or has been overcome by race.
Either way, it is a huge disappointment.
Not me. I distrusted Powell from the moment I heard about him (during the first Gulf War when I was in grade school). Stormin' Norman Schwarzkopf was the military hero who led us to victory in that war, but the media played up Colin "sanctions will stop Saddam" Powell instead.
When the media started pimping this empty suit for President in 1996 because he was a "reasonable Republican", I KNEW he was bad news. When Bush picked Powell for Secretary of State in 2001, I thought it was a lousy choice and he only got the job because the media salivates over everything Powell says. I didn't trust him any further than I could throw him.
Powell has always been a snake and I knew it LONG before the Obama endorsement.
Race obsessed Race got him everything, all his promotions. For a military man to support Obama, it’s all about race, nothing more. He’s a POS supporting POS
Powell should have been kicked out of the Army for his participation in the cover-up of the My Lai massacre.
