Colin Powell endorses
Obama for a second term

Yahoo! News, by Chris Moody

Original Article

Posted By:The Patriot Code, 10/25/2012 8:55:42 AM

TAMPA, Fla. -- Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, a Republican who served under George W. Bush, declared his support for a second term of President Barack Obama."I voted for him in 2008, and I plan to stick with him in 2012," Powell said Thursday during an interview with CBS's "This Morning." "I'll be voting for he and for Vice President Joe Biden next month." Powell said he believed Obama's economic policies were helpful in turning around the sluggish economy and he criticized Republican challenger Mitt Romney's stance on foreign policy.

But he all but endorsed Obama in 2008, so why be surprised? It's a black thing.

Still, a massive downer for me. I just got back from a charity trip to a 3rd world country not far from the USA. My group gave its time, money and effort to help out. For that, we were called names (I speak their language enough)by the people we went to help. I feel and felt betrayed by them and now by Powell. He is not the man I thought he was....to much like Obama I now realize. He can hang in the closet with Barry and the other empty suits.

It is indeed #2. When I think of the time and the education, the quotas and reparations, affirmative action and special considerations, and they were all for naught. First, foremost and always the vast majority of blacks will vote skin color.

#15, that is my biggest problem with Colin Powell. It was a bad decision from an historical perspective. It was easy enough to see, at the time, that it was going to be a bad decision. Just days and weeks proved it so when there was an uprising of Iraqis and the US stood by and let them be slaughtered by Hussein as he reasserted his power.

We did not get any input to override that bad decision. Thankfully, this bad decision on his part will be overridden by the voters.

#39, oh please, give me a break. Colin Powell got where he is by pretending (apparently) to be a Republican. It was George W Bush, a Republican WHITE president, who elevated Powell to the status he held (and who most of us thought he deserved, based on who he said he was, NOT the color of his skin).

So if we are disappointed in the man and who he has endorsed for president, especially after the fiasco of the last 4 years, that doesn't make us racist.

Powell's conservative credentials expired when he endorsed Obama the first time around. Why does he continue to remain a Republican? He's become almost as big a cypher as Obama is.

Years ago a friend with "inside knowledge" on the My Lai massacre in Viet Nam stated that Powell had "dirty hands" in this event, meaning that he had pulled some strings, etc.

Can't prove it, haven't read anything about this, never read his book...yet somehow I would, if given the chance, want to explore this thread, this smear, or this supposed fact.

I don't trust the guy, especially after how he covered for his boy and sent Scooter Libby up river without a paddle.

Nope, go home, rock in your chair, read a black civil war book and imagine what a true leader would say about B. Hussein.

Try thinking like Mayor Clint Eastwood...

Hardly a surprise. Powell was first and foremost a careerist, and while in the military projected the attitudes that would best insure promotion. After retiring from the Army, he cast off his non-political suit and donned Republican attire to better fit his appointment in the Bush I administration. Upon leaving the Bush administration, he then used his cred to bolster the causes he really believed in. One of these is supporting a Black President.

Powell is a disgrace. He was never, ever a Republican but an opportunist. He ego was fed by being Secretary of State, but he is a user. As noted above, it's how he got ahead in the military - maximizing the value of affirmative action.

Many years ago Powell gave an interview, I believe with 60 Minutes - I am not certain...

In the interview he discussed his upbringing, his career in the military and path to the WH and how much Affirmative Action helped him with opportunities in school, college (New York), employment and the military. He was rather upfront and unapologetic about the doors opened to him through Affirmative Action and during the interview he acted as if it was owed to him.

This attitude is carried by a vast majority of blacks, and that is why most non-blacks view blacks in postitions of authority or elevated as unqualified because of benefits bestowed without earned merit, talent or accomplishment. This personifies Obama, many blacks in public office/service and those in mid to high level corporate positions (where quotas have to be satisfied).

Perhaps the only area where Affirmative Action cannot assist and where true talent and ability are required is in professional sports.

As a former U>S> military general, Mr Powell should understand that Obama's foreign policy can be summed up in two words, PRO-MUSLIM. He has no other foreign policy. Perhaps Mr Powell just wants to vote based on race, which is actually understandable. Obviously he has left his military background far in the background.
Voting for the re-election of the president is a vote against America's future.

So the AAG (Affirmative Action General)backed up Colin Powell endores his tranformative figger again. Like we didn't see this coming. I still remember back during the Gulf War that this hack gave his bad advice to the first President Bush to not go and get Sodamninsane in Bagdad. The fact that this old RINO would go to bat for Odumbo after how he's decimated the black community with his wretched policies is nothing short of a disgrace. I often wonder how better men like Bush 1 and 2, Rumsfield, and Schawtzkopf feel about this moral coward.

I think Colin Powell is still peeved over President Regan forcing him to abandon his command in Europe after the Democrats pushed the Iran-Contra fallacy upon the country. I was at NATO HQ when Casper Wineberger called Powell to advise him that President Regan wanted him to report to Washington as his National Security Council Chief. Powell's response was that if President Regan wanted him, he would have to call Powell himself. Powell had just taken command of V Corps as a Three-Star General then. Well, Powell grudgingly reported to DC so we know who called whom....

Powell was anti-tea party and he is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations so it is possible he is for the New World Order. That would explain his allegiance to O since with O it is all about the United Nations and International 'well-being' and not the United States-but the denigration of the United States, to bolster the New World Order.

Man as God:
"Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things." (Romans 1)

Powell's bonifides for the most part come in foreign policy. He as said previously that Obama has a questionable foreign policy stance. Most all know that Obama's economic and domestic policies are an abject failure. Maybe color really does run more than skin deep?

Colin Powell made his way up the ranks through Affirmative Action. He was a C student but became a General because of his color. He has never impressed me.

You're right on #87. Like Fauxbama, Powell is another example of promotion because of affirmative action. Also like Fauxbama, Powell's rise was based on skin color and without any consideration of merit because there was none.

He? I will be voting for he?

Powell is not what he was cracked up to be. The lights are on - but nobody seems to be at home. He looked and sounded like a man of substance, just as Barack Obama -to some people- looked and sounded like a man of substance.

If Powell ever decides to run for office, I will not be voting for he.

TAMPA, Fla. -- Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, a Republican who served under George W. Bush, declared his support for a second term of President Barack Obama."I voted for him in 2008, and I plan to stick with him in 2012," Powell said Thursday during an interview with CBS's "This Morning." "I'll be voting for he and for Vice President Joe Biden next month." Powell said he believed Obama's economic policies were helpful in turning around the sluggish economy and he criticized Republican challenger Mitt Romney's stance on foreign policy.

Barack Obama has lied about the terrorist attack on the American Consulate in Libya for over 15 days, even going so far as to overtly imply that this attack was prompted by an obscure internet movie trailer in his speech at the United Nations two weeks after it was confirmed the White House knew it was an Al Qaeda sponsored attack. Additionally, during the current campaign the lies and obfuscations about Mitt Romney and the Republicans have been so fast and furious that it is nearly impossible to keep up with them.

In a meeting with the heads of the five service branches in 2010, President Obama offered the leaders a choice: Support my efforts to end the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy, or resign. In a video obtained by BuzzFeed via a Freedom of Information Act request, Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Robert Papp revealed that Obama was unwilling to compromise with service leaders over DADT during a meeting in 2010. “We were called into the Oval Office and President Obama looked all five service chiefs in the eye and said, ‘This is what I want to do.’ I cannot divulge everything

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats. What I do object to is that Bush is already being heralded as the obvious candidate, the man to whom the big money must and will flow. As the Washington Post reports: Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a

Obamacare, the plan purportedly created to provide health coverage for the uninsured, has enrolled just 1.7% of America´s 48.6 million uninsured. News of the disastrous numbers comes as nervous Democrats and President Barack Obama, ahead of the November midterm elections, did their best on Monday´s enrollment deadline to put a positive spin on the deeply unpopular Obamacare program. (Snip) The White House now claims an Obamacare enrollment figure of six million people. However, according to The New York Times, at least 20% of those never paid their premiums to activate coverage, leaving them uninsured.

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, criticized last year by a Vatican official for her support of abortion, received a rosary Tuesday from President Obama that was blessed by Pope Francis. Mrs. Pelosi told reporters of the president’s gift after having lunch with Mr. Obama at the White House. The president met with the pope last week at the Vatican. “I was happy to receive a rosary blessed by Pope Francis,” she said. “It means a great deal to me.” Last year, a Vatican official in Rome said that Mrs. Pelosi should be denied communion. “This is a person who obstinately,

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in

Spanish historians say they have discovered what Monty Python could not – the Holy Grail, the legendary cup Jesus supposedly drank from at the Last Supper. The Spaniards – Margarita Torres and José Ortega del Río – believe the 2,000-year-old vessel is in a church in León in northern Spain. The pair spent three years studying the history of the chalice and last week published a book, “The Kings of the Grail,” making their case. The onyx chalice, they explained, was concealed within another antique vessel known as the Chalice of Doña Urruca, which is located in León’s basilica of
