Most politicians will say or do anything if it means
something to them personally, and Colin Powell is certainly
I never regarded him as a “real” Republican,
because his heart just never seemed to be in anything that he
did for the Bush administration. I always wondered what
President Bush saw in him. But I guess his position was kind
of a “thank you” for his help during the first Gulf War, and for his half-hearted attempts at the UN, to get them involved
in the current Iraq War.
Now, just one day after endorsing Obama, surprise, surprise, we find out that Obama will have a place on his staff for the once respected Colin Powell.
Well, I can’t say that I am disappointed, nor am I personally
surprised, since I always felt that it would come to pass.
For a so-called Washington “outsider”, Obama had it all figured out from the start. That Chicago political machine sure gave him good training in the art of deception and
misrepresentation, and maybe even circumventing the system.
