Colin Powell today endorsed Barack Obama for President
, and the media is drooling in delight because of it. They are broadcasting his endorsement as major, stunning, etc. My question is why is his endorsement considered important? As I see it, he's endorsement isn't going to have any sway with most blacks, they already were going to vote for Obama anyways. Besides blacks still consider him a Republican "sellout" from back in the days when he was the first black Chairman of the Joint Chefs of Staffs as well as the first black Secretary of State. I have to admit, I do consider Collin Powell to be a huge sellout as well. It's not on the issue of race for backing Obama, but it has to do with him selling out the military by backing Obama. Powell has been a military guy most of his life. Collin Powell either has no idea what Obama has planned for drastically downsizing our Armed Forces or he doesn't care. It's one or the other. I'm sure Powell is familiar by now with who William Ayers is. This is another issue with Powell in which I scratch my head in confusion. Barack Obama launched his political career in the house of a man that is proud he set off bombs at the nerve center of the United States military being the Pentagon and wish he had done more. Why would any military person endorse a person that has affiliations with people like Ayers? Right now they're are tens of millions of people suffering from the "dumb dumb disease" with this romantic trance over Barack Obama. Powell said that Barack is the best person to deal with the economy. My question is what qualifies Obama as the best person to deal with economy. I'm not even saying McCain is but this is all I hear, yet nobody can tell me what are Obama's economic qualifications that makes him any better then McCain on this issue. I wonder will Powell finally make the transition complete and re register as a Democrat. As much as I can't stand liberals, I hate RINO's almost as much. Since Powell is now in the good graces of the media, for the next 17 days he will be promoted as the most important person in America next to Obama himself.
