WASHINGTON (AP) Former Secretary of State Colin Powell is declining to renew the endorsement he gave Barack Obama four years ago, when he called Mr. Obama a transformational figure.
Mr. Powell called presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney a viable candidate and said hes still listening to Republican proposals. Mr. Powell, who served under President George W. Bush, also said, I dont want to throw my weight behind someone at this point in the campaign.

It is time to oppose the same sorry mistakes that McCain and the RINO Party made in 2008.
It is also time for us as Conservatives to recognize and avoid making the same sorry mistakes that WE made in 2008.
One mistake that we made in 2008 was to revert back to the old days when we were known as The Silent Majority. We grumbled, held our noses, and Caved-In as all good RINO sheep are expected to do.
Our Silent Caving-In in 2008 created the problem that MANY Conservatives refused to vote for McCain.
IF we behave in 2012 as RINO Sheep and Cave-In to whoever the RINOs endorse, nominate and support, then we Conservatives are no better than our RINO U.S. Representatives and Senators who always Cave-In.
This election is for ALL of the marbles! We cannot afford to play the old RINO game that caused the defeat of McCain to Marxist Obama in 2008.
Obama is much stronger politically now than he was against McCain in 2008, but the RINO Party refuses to consider that reality.
It is time to DUMP ROMNEY who is obviously to weak of a candidate to beat Obama.
The Delegates need to choose in an OPEN Convention a strong NON-RINO Nominee who can soundly defeat Obama, and coat-tail U.S. Senators and Representatives into Congress.
Romney is not that man: DUMP ROMNEY!
We must learn from the mistakes made by the McCain Campaign and rub the collective noses of the RINOs in it!
Romney is counting on the old Classical Conservative Cave-In.
I can hear Romney now: You have no choice but to vote for me. Ill be even more severely Conservative than I was when I rammed through Romneycare. Trust me, I know how The Economy works. Etc, etc., etc.
The battle to win back a CONSERVATIVE White House is starting to break wide open!
I don’t give a rats rear what Powell says or does anymore. He might as well stick with the ugly want-to-be girl he helped to bring to the dance.
Perhaps we can get ‘Stormin’ Norman’ Schwarzkopf to distract this racist black guy while someone gets in close for a quick kick . . .
General Powell was only a republication because Nixon brought him into the White House as a Lieutenant colonel.
Best laugh of the day.
“General Powell was only a republication...”
LOL, ‘republication’...love it!
“Wasnt this scumbag Powell supposed to fade away like a real soldier?”
Real soldier? He is a disgrace to all our Real Soldiers...past, present and future!
“He is an embarrassment to the uniform he wore.”
IMHO he was merely an affirmative action general. He just happened to be in the right place at the right time, when the Army needed to “prove” that it held equal opportunity.
You are 1,000,000% right. No wonder he loves Obama; they’re both tokens.
General Powell was only a republican because Nixon brought him into the White House as a Lieutenant colonel.
