"I think one of the cautions that has to be given to the president - and I've talked to some of his people about this - is that you can't have so many things on the table that you can't absorb it all.He coulda been a contenda! He coulda been the first Black President instead Colin Powell is a discredited Republican armchair political pundit whose opinion is just as valuable as the “Obama-sexual” Chris Matthews.
And I never would have believed that we would have budgets that are running into the multi-trillions of dollars, and we are amassing a huge, huge national debt that, if we don't pay for in our lifetime, our kids and grandkids and great grandchildren will have to pay for it."—Colin Powell
Listening to Chris Matthews talk about Barack Obama is like listening to your father talk about having sex with your mother, Yuk!
And listening to Colin Powell speaking for Republicans is like listening to Benedict Arnold speaking for America (yeah… that’s just not working Mr. Powell!).
So after his much ballyhooed endorsement of Barack Hussein Obama it seems that Powell is showing buyers remorse like a very large number of Americans who now see what Republicans were warning them about. (see 2:48mins video)
The only thing that was between Democrats, their fiscal irresponsibility and the American people were Republicans. Now that Republicans have been removed completely out of the way Americans are able to see Democrats for what they really are and that is puerile irresponsible partisan out-of-control tax and spend demagogues who would rather see their ideological goals met rather than putting the United States first. This is even become apparent to Colin Powell now. (see story)
So when Colin Powell finally comes late to the realization that his choice for President is acting irresponsibly one has to wonder how could this be a surprise to someone who was supposed to be so politically urbane as Powell?
Powell says that Obama has to start taking a very hard look at what the cost of all his policies, i.e. two wars, $700 billion dollar bailouts, taking over the auto industry, $787billion dollar stimulus, $100billion dollar and up, Global Warming policies, and now $1.6trillion dollar health care sell that Obama is attempting get over on the American people. Powell seems to feel that all of this will grow the government to an excess.
Excuse me Mr. Powell but had you been a Conservative Republican you would not have had to see Barack Hussein Obama elected with a Democrat Majority Congress to know that this is exactly what Democrats were going to do. We all knew. All the Conservatives knew and attempted to warn you and the American people for years. Just look back at this or any Conservative blog!
It’s good that you can see it now but your “Johnny come lately” coming to the truth moment does nothing to add to your credibility Mr. Powell. You refused the presidency when it was all but handed to you and then you endorsed a candidate of the opposition Party who is bringing this Country to the cusp of economic ruin and you just have some concerns?
There is really no reason that anyone should pay any attention to anything that you say Mr. Powell. Of course the Liberal media will continue to use you to rub your existence in the faces of Conservatives as the “Conservative” that endorsed Obama, but after that novelty has worn off you’ll be retired once again to your armchair and from that advantage point you may express your concern freely from the comfort of Lazyboy. There you can scream your concern for what’s going on with the Obama administration as it is reported on MSNBC or CNN. You can scream at your flat screen T.V. when mainstream media is finally forced to show the devastating results of what Barack Hussein Obama’s Liberal policies have cost America.
Here’s hoping that the rest of the RINOs and so-called Independents aren’t as dense as you’ve proved to be Mr. Powell! Now just lean back, put your feet up and watch what your endorsement and vote has cost America.
