You guessed it, another hit piece from the Obama campaign, this time from a freshly brainwashed (a torture technique used by liberals) Colin Powell.
Powell endorsed Barack Obama for president. How low will Barack Obama stoop, and how many “arab” countries has Powell been in? And while we’re at it, why do liberals like Powell so much? What is Powell hiding? Why isn’t anyone looking into this? And who really is Colin Powell?
The L.A. Times reports:
Retired Army Gen. Colin L. Powell, an adviser to the last three Republican presidents, said today that he is crossing party lines to support the Democratic candidate for the White House. “I think he is a transformational figure … and for that reason, I’ll be voting for Barack Obama,” Powell said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
Powel … said he believed that Obama had the style and substance to be successful in the role at a time when America must be better represented and involved on the world stage. He cited a need to speak to world figures “who we have not been willing to talk to before.” “This is a time for outreach,” Powell said.
He cited the Illinois senator’s “ability to inspire” and the “inclusive nature of his campaign.” He said that Obama in recent weeks has “displayed a steadiness” and “showed intellectual vigor” in addressing issues as diverse as the economy and the selection of his running mate -- Sen. Joe Biden, one of the Senate's leading experts on foreign affairs.
Powell said he was concerned about the Arizona senator's approach to those same two issues. "I found that he was a little unsure as to deal with the economic problems that we were having, and almost every day there was a different approach to the problem," Powell said of McCain.
As for McCain's running-mate choice (Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin), Powell said that "now that we have had a chance to watch her for some seven weeks, I don't believe she's ready to be president of the United States, which is the job of the vice president. And so that raised some question in my mind as to the judgment that Sen. McCain made."
The election of Obama as president, Powell said, would “electrify the country and electrify the world.”
