Colin Powell endorses Barack Obama again

Far Left Democrat Colin Powell endorsed Obama again for president this morning and explains it this way:

When he took over, the country was in very very difficult straits. We were in the one of the worst recessions we had seen in recent times, close to a depression. The fiscal system was collapsing. Wall Street was in chaos, we had 800,000 jobs lost in that first month of the Obama administration and unemployment peaked a few months later at 10 percent. So we were in real trouble. The auto industry was collapsing, the housing was start[ing] to collapse and we were in very difficult straits. And I saw over the next several years, stabilization come back in the financial community, housing is now starting to pick up after four years, it’s starting to pick up. Consumer confidence is rising.”

What a joke. The economy is barely growing after 6 trillion in new debt with very high unemployment and people on food stamps. I mean, you have to be a far left Democrat to support that kind of record.

  1. Everything was collapsing because the demo-rats ran the congress the last two years of Bush’s last term and put the decline in motion with then Sen. obama’s vote and blessing. The man-child inherited his own mess. Powell voted for color of skin, nothing else. I’m trying to believe he was not, and is not that ingnorant. But, I could be wrong.

  2. Just for the record, I have a problem trusting ALL politicians. But trusting them, is not our job.

    Our job is picking the best ones we can find. Let’s not lose sight of that.

  3. Powell and Wesley Clark who I saw on CNN the other day are really birds of a feather. Globalists who don’t speak for what our troops think.

  4. Powell is a republican like- Pelosi is a Catholic + Reid is a Mormon.

    Powell seems to be the only person that doesn’t know that he is not republican.

  5. OMGosh! this is a sadness!
    ‘the fiscal system was collapsing. Wall street was in chaos.’ hello, fed can you say QE infinity! ‘we had 800,000 jobs lost’ the gov’t does not create jobs! the actual unemployment figures would scare the poop outta of us all if we were courageous enough to speak the truth. the auto industry! holy crap do we have to draw a map for this guy. GM prez claims on video that 7 out of 10 cars they build are made in China. Is that a comeback for us or the enemy? the collapse of the housing market was totally a democrat party failure. giving loans to people who had never had the ability or the intention to pay it back, that was the dems plan. Overwhelm
    the system (Cloward/Piven). i guess people really do see what they want to see.
    Socialism is a dead religion. will they ever learn? apparently not.

  6. I used to respect this man. I have NO respect for him now. He is simply a racist AND a “party racist” supporting his race and party. Period.

  7. powell voted skin color instead of content of character and record. He’s no Republican so he needs to take down his sign.

  8. This is very disappointing because I always saw Powell as being a “middle-of-the-road” politician. I haven’t always agreed with him, but I understood his positions. I would have respected the man more if he didn’t endorse anyone, but to endorse Obama again after four years of disaster is just plain dumb. IMO, I think Powell is just backing up “one of his own” since dividing the country racially is one of the main platforms of the Obama Administration and the democratic party.

  9. Disgusted, but not suprised. Powell is like many (not all) blacks in America, who will forgive Obama because he is black. It’s race first with them. Sadly, people like Allen West and Mia Love are not supported by these same blacks, because somewhere in their psyche they have been taught that race first only applies to liberal politicians, black Republicans or Conservatives are just “working for the man”. Pathetic that Powell continues to define himself by race.

  10. How could anyone take him seriously? He’s a has been, a socialist, and needs to crawl back under his rock.

  11. I might’ve given General Powell a pass for voting by skin color the first time around, but doubling-down on Obama after the last four years is absolutely unconscionable. I assume Powell’s smart enough to realize he’ll never hold a political position in the Republican party again, because no self-respecting conservative will ever vote for him, and no representative who might appoint him to something will be able to withstand the outcry if they try to. Enjoy your retirement, General.

  12. This endorsment does nothing for his integrity. How can any military personel endorse Obama who has single handedly deconstructed the greatest military along with the greatest health system along with the greatest economy. Who is paying him what??

    1. He’s behaving as Samuel L. Jackson does…Endorse and vote racially.

      When one has been indoctrinated with the victim-hood mindset (race focused in this case), how else do you expect them to behave? Its no different to observing feminists (gender focused) and gay/trans-gender activists (sexuality focused).

      They all behave very similarly in that they aren’t focused on the nation’s future. They care about what they see of the world through this myopic vision of victim-hood, and do all they can (lobby/special-interest groups) to get freebies from the Govt and fulfill some need for “Social Justice”.

      Western culture used to be about looking after one another. It used to be about community, religion, church, and your neighbor. It used to be about “What can I do for my country?” (JFK)

      …Thanks to Liberals and their infected thinking of the last 50 years, about half the USA has the mindset of “What can the country do for me?”

      Have you not noticed that the more Govt gets involved, the more disconnected the communities are? People aren’t so friendly as they used to be as politics of the Left divides people into politically correct groups. They envy success of others, while doing nothing for themselves.

      In Australia, we call that envy “Tall Poppy Syndrome”…

      …and living on welfare/Govt benefits is being a “Dole Bludger”

      The current polls in this Presidential Election shows that Liberals haven’t totally taken over everyone’s minds. It is a good indication that there is still hope for America’s future. You guys need to push back.

  13. All rehashed, talking points written by Barack Obama for him. Charges against Romney that are not specific but vague with no context or timelines. A man who has lost his dignity for a jive-talking thug. I truly despise this man as well as Obama.

  14. Forgot to add re him being all worried about what Romney would do w/ foreign policy; likes what Bambi is doing in that area. Has he been in hibernation the last month? Is he watching MSNBC or even NBC where he would NEVER hear of what happened all over the middle east and the stalling and cover up that’s going on? Like I said earlier, what a waste of what could have been a stellar legacy.

  15. This man is a flake and a disgrace. He makes no sense.
    I usually try to stay away from the race stuff, but can anyone really imagine Colin Powell endorsing Obama if he were white? It just seems so transparent to me. (pardon the pun)

  16. And to think that he had a chance to reconsider his 1st endorsement…His fault that this is how he wants to be remembered instead of his military and governmental career. Guess he could always call up Charlie Crist. Last I heard he’s lonely and looking for anyone to play tennis with. Both of these guys just ought to go ahead and register as Dims since we have no use for them in the Republican party.

  17. Black man voting for a black man that is the only reason Powell is voting for Obama. Powell was a conservative republican in G W Bush’s administration when Obama came on the scene and then all of a sudden Powell is now a liberal democrat. Powell is a racist and his switching idiology proves it. A man that will change his idiology that he has stood for his whole life, because of the color of the candidates skin is a racist and not worthy of our attention or respect

    1. I always liked the guy, but it is very hard to refute what you are saying. Maybe we should cut him some slack, If I were black, I imagine I would be a little more patient with the first black leader of the free world. Surely he hasn’t read up on what sort of radical Obama truly is. Hard to reconcile.

    2. Powell was a republican figure but he was never a conservative. Even he was hesitant to call himself one. The endorsement was till racially motivated though.

  18. They say that Powell was mistreated by his own republican party and that is why he is endorsing Obama.

    1. He wouldn’t be anywhere without the Bushes. Palin was mistreated by the Republicans for opposite reasons. She’s not bitter and she’s not an Obama lapdog.

  19. Jackasses like this is why the Republican party was nearly dead in 2008.

    Thank God for the Tea Party and new media. These label-switching jackals who crave nothing but power will no longer find a place to nest in the GOP from this day forward.

    “Compromise is how things get done” – BULLS**T!! Compromise is how you each line each others pockets as you cram it down the taxpayers throat.

    “I think I’m a Republican of a more moderate mold,” he said before adding, “That’s something of a dying breed I’m sorry to say.”

    No, you ain’t dying hoss, you already DEAD. Good riddance to bad rubbish.


  20. Powell, with all of his education and stellar military career, still votes on skin color! It’s not surprising, really. He has never been a Rebublican, but more a RINO! He might as well join Michael Steele and admit that he’s a liberal Democrat! Why play games? Just come out of the closet General! Many people have lost respect for you–including me! Sad to see you go, but don’t let the door hit you on the way out!

  21. He’s voting the color of his skin, not the content of character. He was promoted by Republicans and sold his soul to the Democrats.

  22. powell is a racist…. he is just voting for barry because he is black.. never liked powell and this reminds me why.

  23. There goes any residual respect I might have had for the man.

    Fool Powell once shame on NOBama
    Fool Powell twice shame on Powell!

    Whatever excuse Powell might have had for voting for NObama the first time around, a man of his supposed intellect should not be blind to the colossal destruction NObama is doing to America. I didn’t vote for NObama the first time, and I certainly would NEVER vote for him a second time!

  24. Colin Powell is no moderate and not a Republican, though he thinks he can still get by with the label. Supporting Obama for a second term simply means he has come out of the closet of really being a Democrat at heart, a lefty at that. Obama is the most radical leader America has ever had, he is a communist, a man without a conscience who believes in actively killing newborns, let alone supporting their slaughter in utero. Let Powell lie to himself, he is fooling no one.

    It’s obvious that he has lost his own moral compass if he believes that Obama is good for America, and since Powell doesn’t stand up for America, it’s obvious he is really one of them vs “one of us.”

  25. So Powell despised Bush, is what this means. Bush wasn’t progressive enough. Nope, no respect for the guy.

  26. If this is an example of intellectualism in this country it is of little wonder we are in such a mess.

    Reality check is Powell is a coward. He is endorsing Obama because he doesn’t want any blacklash.

  27. Anyone with at least 10 g of brain mass and a little bit of information and who has served or is serving in the Armed Forces cannot or shouldn’t be endorsing Obama. I used to really love Colin Powell but now I have to say that he is not even able of showing any loyalty to the Bush Administration. He is a bitter guy who is only loyal to his skin color. He is willing to betray his Country and the Nation only because he cannot accept that Obama is a fraud and that he supported this fraud already in the past.

  28. Well now that Collin Power has endorsed Obama, this is what I was waiting to make up my mind.
    N-O-T (I could care less what this idiot thinks it will not mean anything this is just another person that will be voting with racial reasons Obama is black so he votes for him.)

  29. This may go against general opinion, but I think if I were black, and in a leadership position, such as Colin Powell, I would feel it my responsibility to act as a role model to people of color, especially black youth.

    The Democratic Party has always used the black population of this country for their own purposes. I believe the General could have helped change that. By endorsing Obama, not once, but twice, he missed a great opportunity to do something really great for this country.

    Colin Powell was born in Harlem, of Jamaican parents. He rose through the ranks of the military, to eventually become Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and later Secretary of State, under George W. Bush. At one time, had he decided to run, he would have been elected President by a landslide.

    Colin Powell has enjoyed a great career by anyone’s measure, both in the military and in government service. He has been a prominent figure on the world stage for a quarter of a century or more.

    It is sad, that this will be his legacy. After such a stunning career, he will best be remembered for supporting the worst President in the history of this great Republic, in that president’s attempt to destroy this nation and the American way of life.

  30. I like how you tell it like it is Scoop! Far left Democrat pretty much sums it up. Remember a few years back when so many Republicans fell in love with this guy? They had a psychological need to find a black conservative to support. The only problem is that he isn’t and never was a conservative. He never even claimed to be either. Remember that?
    He sort of coyly kept his political leanings to himself, and let people believe what they wanted to believe. That is the danger to this white guilt that so many have. It blinds them to the true charachter of the man. Why not stop worrying about finding a black conservative to get behind? How about just finding a conservative? There are plenty – Jim Demint, Allen West, Scott Walker, Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin, etc.

  31. He must have a book coming out.

    Seriously, Are any of us surprised?

    At the very least I hoped he would have kept quiet.

  32. I just walked into my “office”, and first headline I saw was Colin Powell endorses Obama.

    I actually groaned outloud.

    Well thats 7 military men for Obama
    300 for Romney.

  33. Colon (Blow) is a traitor to our nation for supporting a racist dictator that wants to destroy everything our founders stood for! I hate him and those that buy into Obama’s lies. If you haven’t seen the truth by now you just don’t give a damn! I guess if your wealthy you don’t have anything to worry about, (you have yours, to hell with those that want the American Dream.) I think this is what they are really thinking.

  34. I used to greatly respect this man. When he endorsed Obama 4 years ago I let it go because I just figured that he had bought into the bull of Obamamania like most of America…however, now there is no excuse. After 4 years of misery and lies from this president there is no reason possible that this man should continue supporting Obama but yet he is…it is ridiculous.

    I hope history remembers him for the turncoat racist that he is.

    1. I agree with most of your comment, Edward, except for the ‘respect’ part. Powell was always a political officer, and never truely a serious senior or flag officer. He got just what he sought, a possistion in the Bush admin, and then betrayed the conservatives by hooking onto Obama and his band of marxists.

      You are so right my friend, Powell IS a turncoat and a racist!

  35. Why do these people think that if things are “Stabilized” that we are in a terrific position? Often the patient in a stable condition at one moment can be moved to a critical condition in the next.

    Stable is not a positive condition for this nation. We, personally, have seen our annual income plummet in the last four years. We might hit 40K this year. It’s depressing! and we aren’t encouraged by a “Stable” economy. Our livlihood depends upon this economy being turned around in a BIG way.

    America should NEVER be happy with STABLE! We should continually be striving for the best this nation has to offer and offering our BEST. We are BETTER than stable. It’s weak feeble answers like this that keep politicians believing they have all the answers and We the People should just go away and do as they say.

    RISE UP, America! Defend the greatest nation on earth. Fight for what our Founding Fathers gifted us with, freedom, liberty, the pursuit of happiness. We are better than “stable”, and don’t ever doubt that!

  36. There is no question that the economy was in terrible shape when Obama took over. No one disputes that (what is disputed is exactly who caused it). It’s what you do with it after you take office that determines whether or not you were successful.

    This year is worse than last year, which was worse than the year before. Continually blaming Bush and claiming it was worse at the beginning than you anticipated just doesn’t cut it anymore. Obama has put our recovery in the same vein that Japan did with their ‘lost decade’ in the 90’s.

    If I were to vote against Obama because he was Black, I would be considered a racist, and rightly so. Anybody who votes for a man because he is Black (90% of the Black community) is just as much a racist as the the former.

    The one thing that the last four years has accomplished is to completely blow to smithereens the so-called race card. It doesn’t work anymore, due to crying wolf (racist) far too much.

    General Powell, your time has passed. You blew it. Time to surrender your horse and bayonet and quietly go away.

  37. Colin Powell and Allen West may have worn the same uniform, but they are two very different men. I know this post is not about Allen West, but I can’t help but make the comparison.

    Because of his intelligence, his leadership qualities, and his bearing, Colonel West demands your respect, and gets it. He knows who he is. He’s comfortable in his own skin, regardless of it’s color.

    Colin Powell seems to still have a chip on his shoulder, perhaps from his experiences at the Military Academy, I don’t really know. I thought he made this nation proud, when he was a member of the Bush cabinet after 9/11. I don’t quite feel the same right now.

    He’s supporting Obama for obvious reasons, and I don’t believe they are the ones he just stated.

  38. Once you go whack, you never go back?

    Ok, that’s all I got. “…Here is my handle, here is my spout…”

  39. Yet, this racist excuse of a so-called patriot still calls himself a republican. It’s all about the skin color, baby. That’s all this ever was.

  40. If anything, this solidifies the idea that factions in the military are progressives (commies) and are working to undermine this country. It’s telling how many have cross party allegiance which to means there is NO difference between them regarding liberty.

    Seems the likes of Colin are adhering to a higher calling and it’s not God.

    Seems the Council on Foreign Relations Have Ties to The Muslim Brotherhood via CAIR.
    Interview with Steve Emerson a renowned expert on Islamic Terrorism and shows how far back this infiltration goes since the interview was June 1997

    From Discover the Networks…

    Middle East Quarterly is MEQ
    MEQ: What about the record of academics?

    Emerson: Again, not a pretty sight; many of them make excuses for the fundamentalists. A number of academics, including John Entelis, John Esposito, Yvonne Haddad, James Piscatori, and John Voll help justify the false notion of moderate Islamic fundamentalism by affirming the duplicitous public statements of savvy fundamentalists, rather than looking at the internal materials disseminated by these leaders, which is the real test of their views.

    Even more troublesome is that some militant Islamic groups have made inroads to prestigious public policy organizations. The Council on Foreign Relations, for example, publishes a newsletter (the Muslim Politics Report) with the stated goal of providing a “more diverse” view on Islam. In fact, the newsletter usually carries apologetics for Hamas and other militant Islamic groups. When I pointed this out to the president of the Council on Foreign Relations, he replied that Hamas has a right to be heard. Even under a false cover, I asked? Presenting Hamas views as the council did is like introducing David Duke as a distinguished authority on human rights.

  41. Never mind that it was the Democrats that got us here, but why let a few facts get in the way of good liberal talking point?

    Barney Frank in 2005: What Housing Bubble?

    How The Democrats Caused The Financial Crisis

    Timeline shows Bush, McCain warning Dems of financial and housing crisis; meltdown

    Shocking Video Unearthed Democrats in their own words Covering up the Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac Scam

    The liberals keeping pushing their lie and the Republicans keep letting them! Why?

    1. “Liberals keep pushing their lies and the republicans keep letting them! WHY?”

      Two words come to mind, 9, republicans are ‘ball-less and stupid’. Taken together, it is why the libs always seem to get the upper hand.

    2. What did bush and McCain do to address this problem?

      Other than Mcain signing on to SB 109 five months after it’s introduction, and never bringing it to the floor, absolutely nothing.

  42. Powell must be looking for a job in the Democrat party. Secretary of State, part 11 ?

    Too bad your bro is going down.

  43. I truly believe we could have seen these results with NO intervention at all from the White House. The economy is an organic system with lots of human beings working to improve it. We expect intervention from the Federal Government to improve things, not help them linger along until they hit bottom.

    You can say “Well, we would have gone into a full depression and had 12 percent unemployment” but that wouldn’t make it so.

  44. Powell was a good soldier, but he’s gotta be nuts to endorse Obozo, especially after the last four years. I used to respect Powell, but not so much any more. He’s swiftly turning into General Ashley Wilkes aka Wesley Clark. I served under Clark in Kosovo when he nearly started World War III by ordering the British to clear the Russians out of the airport in Pristina. General Jackson, the British commander, refused the order and Clark got fired over the incident. Not to mention he was one of the most arrogant Generals I ever served under. I was on his security detail several times and never saw him speak to anyone below the rank of Major…ever.

    That’s the kind of moronic judgement Clark has, and now Powell is looking like he’s not far behind Weasely in idiocy.

  45. Colin Powell is a disgrace.

    No one cares Colin… you lost all credibility and objectivity in 2008. And now you’ve proven just how senile you’ve become. Go back and have some Koolaid.

  46. Well, it’s not surprising. I doubt a man like Powell could ever admit that he was wrong. So now he has to double-down on the bet and support Obama again. I wonder how Powell liked our intervention in Libya, something that went so thoroughly against everything he stands for when it comes to going to war? We suffered our first four deaths in that war on, of all days, the anniversary of 9/11. I wonder how many more will die in Libya as al Qaeda begins to take over that country and pull it away from its civilian leadership? Will we have to send in troops or “peacekeepers” to prop up the weak civilian government in Tripoli? Powell once said about Iraq, “You broke it, you own it.” I wonder if he ever said the same thing to Obama about Libya?

  47. Imagine, this guy and Betrayus, good God Almighty save us, readjust our moral compass, help us reestablish the fundamentals by which and for which our Country was founded with a miltary leadership that has pride in America and what we stand for.

  48. When Bush put the career-limiter on him at the UN, Powell took that personally. It shows.

    The irony is Obama is dangling Hillary in the wind for Benghazi, but Powell seems not to see the correlation.

  49. Well I will say Powell was a heckuva soldier, but I certainly don’t like his choice of presidential candidates!!!! I just don’t understand him endorsing obama. But that’s the way it works in America….at least for now.

  50. I wonder what Rush is going to say about this. He took alot of heat in 08 for being critical of this endorsement.

  51. In 2008 the coward used Sarah Palin as the reason for endorsing the incompetent Obama.
    This time, he really shows his ignorance and disregard for country–by wanting to repeat the same mistake.
    It seems like tough guy Colin, can’t handle the Harry Belafonte’s and Danny Glover’s of the world, calling him an Uncle Tom.
    A true disgrace.

  52. The “General” lines up with Castro, Chavez, Ahmadinejad, Hamas, Hezbollah, and Putin. Imagine that…

  53. Powell climbed to fame hogging glory from General Schwarzkopf in the first Gulf War. I wonder if this desk jockey would rather serve as Ambassador to Libya under Obama or Romney?

  54. He’s obviously a wolf in sheep’s clothing. He thinks it matters more if people perceive him as a Republican for Obama. All these Libs play to the ill-informed and ignorant.

  55. Colon Powell is just another Left wing bigoted political hack. His endorsement for BHO is clearly motivated by race.

  56. Turncoat! What a traitor. Any traitor, turncoat finds a reason to define their treachery as rational. Colin Powell is a disgrace. I wonder what the traitor General thinks of black unemployment, and increased debt under his godsend’s watch?

  57. Powell showed his stripes by endorsing Obama in 2008. McCain, lame as he was, was the obvious choice for Powell. It was a choice between a moderate Republican war veteran that was an almost exact duplicate of Powell, or a far left black man. Powell endorsed Obama purely based on skin color and nothing else. Now, his choice is to admit that he was wrong or double down on his Obama endorsement.

    The really ironic thing is that it was his testimony before the U.N. that convinced me, and a lot of other people, that we had a good case to go into Iraq. Obama’s opposition to going into Iraq was one of his main campaign themes in both 2008 and 2012.

  58. Wow. To go from multiple stars on your shoulders to cartoon stars circling your head. Not good.

    bdatbdatbdatbdatbdat, dat’s all folks.

    Scotty! Leave me alone this time. Beam him up!

  59. OS GEEZ!!! WHAT A SHOCK!!! Another ignorant, indoctrinated black racist thinking with his skin color and then trying to spin it off and try to make it all about something else!!! Powell is a joke and has ALWAYS been a joke!!

  60. There was a time I respected Colin Powell but no more. Truly a disappointment. It is amazing how many have been deceived by the evil in this administration.

    1. I agree. I am disappointed that someone with his experience in foreign policy and military background could endorse someone who is responsible for the deaths of an American ambassador and three others in Benghazi.

      1. Were you as disappointed after W ignored multiple PDB’s and didn’t act to stop the attack on 911 that killed 3000 Americans?

        Were you as disappointed that W attacked the wrong country and over 4000 troops were killed for nothing, based on a lie?

        Seems to be that your “disappointment” is meaningless as you have no morals.

    1. I’m sure they didn’t do that. But it may have been a poor choice of first name by his parents! I wonder if he got teased growing up with people calling him Colon Bowel? That would have been mean!

      1. LOL !
        Gary, & Gal2:20, I have been laughing so hard at work and no one can figure out why
        ! – largest indestine
        – COLON POWELL
        ok , I apologise for being overentertained !my heart needed a good laugh today

  61. this is a black man voting for a black man simply because he is black…. if Benghazi doesn’t make him change his mind…. nothing will. Do your job America and vote B O out of office…

    1. In fairness to Powell, if he has endorsed Romney, the attacks against him would have been extreme but I would have respected him more. Obama just let one of our ambassadors be killed for political reasons and the cover-up is obvious. If that’s not enough to turn Powell then he lose’s my respect.

      1. When he endorsed Obama he lost his ties with the Republicans. By endorsing Obama again he “stays in good” with the democrats. No character no credibility. End of conversation.

    2. The shame in all can be found in the true ancestry of Barack Hussein Obama. He is 50% white, 43.25% Arab (thus Barack Hussein Obama) and 6.75% African-Negro. Only in a LIBTARD world does that compute to “first black President.” Hell if Obama is our “first black President” will Elizabeth Warren be our “first native born Indian” Senator? See what I am talking about. Hoax!! Fraud!! Criminal!! All three wrapped into one, Barack Hussein Obama.

  62. Colin Powell has become a joke. He once had the esteem of most people and now he has just become another advocate for the lies of a president who has done nothing.

  63. He’s a moderate. I still have respect for the guy. Hopefully in a Romney Admin, he’ll see the light.

    Someone should pull Powell aside and ask him what Obama’s 2nd term agenda is.

      1. Thank you – I agree. Moderate? Anyone heard of Partial Birth Abortion. Errrr moderate? But I get it. The Left have taken words, used their veneer but stripped them of their core meaning. To the Left anyone who loves this country, is proud of our history and thinks the Founders were inspired is a nazi or whatever.

        But back to Powell. Can I call this what it really is? If Obama was white……would he get the endorsement? Like heck he would. This is just more of the same nonsense we have seen in the polls where blacks support this idiot by 9:1 vs Romney because yes he is a Democrat but really it is because he is black. Remember what one of the Congressional Black Caucus members said, some idiot woman out of California, “if Barack Obama was white we would be protesting outside the Whitehouse” because of the economic impact to blacks nationally.

        So this is political racism at its deepest. I hate the racism charge. Its so freaking nauseating. But can someone reallllly tell me Powell is not just trying to cover Barry’s ass because he is black?

        1. I wholeheartedly agree, which tells you something about the true character of Colin Powell. He put skin color above the security of our nation. Shame on his sorry butt!

        2. either cover barrys arse or powells head together with many other libs and hollywoods big names are all together up deep n barrys arse in the name of “black”

      2. I agree, Willem Boom. I once rrespected Powell for many reasons, but its obvious like the vast majority of black Americans, he cannot get above race to understand we can never be united as one people until racism becomes ancient history. Obama, without doubt, is the most narcissistic, incompetent, corrupt president this country has ever had. He has no clue and his “background” removes all doubt that is true. He has constantly divided our country for his personal gain. If re-elected, life as we know it will cease to exist.

        1. Actually Don, life as we know it, will continue and even get worse. That’s what we have been living with for the last four years.

    1. Powell is no moderate. Even back in the mid-90’s when people were talking him as a potential candidate for President, dude supported policies like affirmative action. He’s a liberal and has been for a while. I think it’s race and not ideology that has him backing Obama twice, but this idea that he was some sort of centrist or even conservative Republican has always been a joke.

        1. Booker T. tweeted this at: 6:12 AM – 25 Oct 12:

          “Booker T. Booker T. @Booker_TW
          I respect Colin Powell, but I’m disturbed that he can’t even notice the disaster that this President is.

          Be consistent, Booker, be consistent.

          1. I am being consistent. I respect him, but my respect for him has gone down a notch. You can not support Obama once, then when you get a chance to correct your error, you do it again. That just shows that he isn’t paying attention to the issues. I am very consistent. I’m not perfect though, of course.

      1. …well stated rs and you have hit the nail on the head once again.

        P.S. …thank you for this web site.”

    2. After what Obama has done anyone who supports Obama twice does not deserve to work in govt again. Colin Powell unfortunately has gone astray and the best thing we can do is pray he will see the light. May God open his eyes to the truth. Amen.

      1. If I may take just a tweak at your statement, which I fully support

        After what O has done, anyone who supports O twice does not deserve to work.

        1. After what O has done, This country is on the road back after the 8 years of disaster that left this Nation in a shambles.

          1. Tell that to the 23 million unemployed.

            Why don’t you try thinking for yourself instead of spewing Barky Boy’s lies

    3. Ya know Booker T had he excerted some “Class” when he was thrown under the bus and shown some patience, he would probably have been President but sadly after all the years of Military Training and Public Office I guess his true inner stupidity could not be quelled any longer….(((SIGH)))

      1. I have many problems with Bush, but he didn’t throw Powell under the bus. Dubya was all about loyalty, even to people who didn’t deserve it, giving positions to people who didn’t deserve them.
        Powell showed a lack of honor and loyalty throwing Scooter Libby under the bus for something his own assistant, Armitage, was guilty of. By that time also he’s been too old to run for President. That was back in the 90s when everyone was saying that.

        1. Powell did the right thing. Libby and Rove committed treason when they did Cheneys dirty work and outed a CIA operative for political gain.

          Powell regrets his address to the UN as it tarnished his reputation.

          1. The CIA agent was outed by Richard Armitage. Libby was a fall guy and Powell knew Armitage was the one who actually outed them. What a schmuck.
            What are you even doing on this site?

            1. What, I can’t come and comment on this site?
              Would you like to ban me?

              You have a source for your Armitage assertion?
              And what did you think when W didn’t pardon Libby?

    4. I still have respect for him too, Booker. Just not as much as I used to have.

      He did serve his country. He just seems to have lost his way, since then.

    5. Colin Powell is no moderate, I would submit to that his views are much closer to nancy Pelosi then to Ronald Reagan. Everything Obama “accomplishment” Colin spoke of was in Obamas first year in office- or first 6 months. And we were not going into a depression. This guy claimed to be a Republican when his book came out in 1994 so he could benefit $$$$ from the Dems & the Repubs. Thank you for your service to our country; however, you and Richard armitage should have been indicted instead of Scooter Libby. Now, as an old General, please don’t die, but fade away….

    6. I have no respect for the man. He was a close friend with John McCain, both military buddies and he chose a community organizer with many Marxist/Communist ties over John McCain. He voted solely on skin color. I lost all respect for the man. Now that he is supporting this PROVEN fraud, criminal and national security risk Obama over Mitt Romney is beyond the anything one can imagine. I have moved from losing respect to calling him a idiot with military stars on his dress greens. IDIOT!

    7. If he was so moderate, why does he think Obama is doing a wonderful job? Why would he endorse the most far-left President in history? Nothing moderate about that.
      I’d put this in bold if I knew how. A moderate to the media is somebody who agrees with the left on every single thing!

        1. It’s so obvious I shouldn’t have to bother, but for starters look at who he associates with. His father and stepfather were Communists. His pastor is Communist. He wants to remake the country and thinks businessowners “didn’t build that”.

          1. So you got guilt by association.

            Sorry. That doesn’t cut it in an intellectually honest discussion.

            Try again.
            How is he the “most far left in history”?

            Or is that just an exaggeration?

            1. Obamacare ring a bell? How about what he told Joe the Plumber? So many things he and his associates like the Communist Van Jones have said.

              1. Obamacare? -For profit hospitals- Still there.
                – For profit insurance- still there.
                – For profit Doctors-still there.
                Sorry. no socialism or communism there.

                What did he tell joe the plumber?- That wealth distribution to the top 1% isn’t very good for a nations economy? And that an economy that has money moving up and down, not just up is most desirable.

                The fact that we have seen in the last 30 years the Greatest Wealth Redistribution To the Top 1% in the History of the world due to special interest carving out the rules to favor those same 1% is the reason Obama made that remark, And he was right.

                So you are 0 for 2 so far.

                And what is it a bout Van Jones that makes Obama the most “Far left in History”?

                This should be good. lol
