Colin Powell endorses
Obama for second term

Reuters, by Susan Heavey

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 10/25/2012 8:54:58 AM

Former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell on Thursday endorsed Barack Obama in his bid for re-election, citing the Democratic president's efforts to wind down the war in Afghanistan and tackling terrorism. "And so I think we ought to keep on the track that we are on," the Republican, who also backed Obama in 2008, told "CBS This Morning." The move comes just days after Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney clashed over foreign policy in the third and last presidential debate ahead of the November 6 election.

Powell supports 4 more years of 9% unemployment, 16 trillion in national debt, 23000000 people out of work, zero job creation, 1 in 6 in poverty , mid east on the verge of flames 11900 pages of new regulations and 4.00 gas. Great call Colon, bros sticking together.

Just remember, ABBA is his idea of good music, too. Something about military life left his other faculties for discernment underdeveloped.

My guess is that Powell wanted some sort of position in a Romney cabinet, (this explained the weather balloons) got turned down, and got payback by saying he would endorse Obama again, despite not being able to stand the guy.

Move on, this guy is not worth listening to on anything at all.

Here's a heads up for those who may have forgotten about the role his wife plays in ALL his decisions. Colin Powell surrendered his masculinity a long time ago when his nasty left winger wife, Alma, lowered the boom. In that she's to the left of Karl Marx and could never stand his relationship regardless of how distant to the GOP, she finally had enough and HE got his marching orders. He'd like to command respect and always sneaks into the public under some guise and this time he likes the fact that the liar ended the war. C'mon Colon (spelling deliberate) why don't you just tell the truth and admit that Alma is carrying your masculinity in her Hermes purse.

I have emailed McClame & the Romney Campaign to try to get General Norman Schwarzkopf(Stormin' Normin') to campaign for Romney - he backed McCain in 2008. I heard him on a speaking tour a few years ago & he was so patriotic & loves our country. I am also glad to see Condi do what might be considered a tough decision but her parents raised her with principles.

Citing a potential al Qaeda attack, the State Department on Friday issued a worldwide travel alert and warned American citizens that the terrorist group may be plotting a strike in the Middle East, North Africa or elsewhere. “Current information suggests that al Qaeda and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks both in the region and beyond, and that they may focus efforts to conduct attacks in the period between now and the end of August,” reads a portion of the alert, which lasts until the end of the month.

The war over the “war on women” rages on these days, as Republicans seek to tar Democrats with the scandals of Anthony Weiner, Bob Filner and Eliot Spitzer. And the next major front in this “war” — the GOP-led 20-week abortion ban — is likely to be even more contentious. But while Democrats are sure to use the new proposed restrictions to feed the narrative of Republicans’ “war on women,” polling on the issue actually tells quite a different story. n fact, of four major polls conducted in recent weeks on the 20-week abortion ban, each one shows women are

Some quick thoughts on the State Department announcement that American embassies throughout the Muslim world will be closed this Sunday, August 4, due to reported al-Qaeda terror threats: 1) The fact that this is reportedly an al-Qaeda plot shows once again that AQ is alive and well globally, contrary to President Obama’s ludicrous and willfully misleading statements over the past two years that it is “on the run” and “nearing defeat.” In fact, al-Qaeda, its affiliates, and its allies now cover more geographical ground across the Muslim world than they did on 9/11

Thursday marked Rush Limbaugh’s 25th anniversary on the air. To label Limbaugh a radio talk show host dramatically underestimates his impact on the political debate, media, and American culture. Limbaugh is truly a transformative figure. When Limbaugh entered the world of talk radio, the AM dial was essentially moribund. He turned it into a weapon for conservatism, and in the process, led the revolution that has ended in the disintegration of the old media monopoly. Limbaugh can rightly be said to be the greatest populist expositor of conservatism in America since Reagan, and the link between the Reagan generation and

Lawmakers and staff can breathe easy — their health care tab is not going to soar next year. The Office of Personnel Management, under heavy pressure from Capitol Hill, will issue a ruling that says the government can continue to make a contribution to the health care premiums of members of Congress and their aides, according to several Hill sources. A White House official confirmed the deal and said the proposed regulations will be issued next week. Just Wednesday, POLITICO reported that President Barack Obama told Democratic senators that he was personally involved in finding a solution.

As they prepared to head home for summer vacation, House Republicans fired off three subpoenas Thursday seeking more information from the State Department on the terrorist attack last year in Benghazi, Libya, and on the science the Environmental Protection Agency used to impose new clean air regulations.

Lost in all the rancor among Republicans over the National Security Agency’s surveillance programs has been this: A similar ideological divide has been exposed in the Democratic Party that could pose even more political difficulties for President Obama. Several Democrats from the party’s civil liberties wing — the mirror image of the Republicans’ rising libertarian strain — met with Obama and Republican lawmakers Thursday at the White House to discuss concerns about the NSA’s phone data collection program and elements of the administration’s broader surveillance effort.

Climatologists at Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment have warned the likely rate of change over the next century will be at least 10 times quicker than any climate shift since the dinosaurs became extinct. If the trend continues at its current rapid pace, it will place significant stress on terrestrial ecosystems around the world, and many species will need to make behavioral, evolutionary or geographic adaptations to survive, they said.

The administration has popped the bubble of hope some small business had that switching to part-time staff would let them escape the high costs of Obamacare. The Small Business Administration on Thursday created a website to explain to businesses that the government will simply tally up the number of part-time employees firms have to determine if enough hours have been worked to essentially create a "full-time equivalent." Some smaller businesses had thought that if they could get under the 50 full-time employee cap that activates Obamacare by cutting full-time workers and hiring more part-time workers they would escape

The nation´s most active death penalty state is running out of its execution drug. The Texas Department of Criminal Justice said Thursday that its remaining supply of phenobarbital expires in September and that no alternatives have been found. It wasn´t immediately clear whether two executions scheduled for next month would be delayed. The state has already executed 11 death-row inmates this year, and at least seven more have execution dates in coming months. "We will be unable to use our current supply of phenobarbital after it expires," agency spokesman Jason Clark said. "We are exploring all options at this time."
