Colin Powell Endorses Obama

Big deal? Nah, its just a PR stunt to get himself back in the good graces of the Beltway/Manhattan elite cocktail party circuit besides its been rumored for months. Will it help Obama? I doubt it since the only ones that care, the ObaMSM, are already in the tank for Obama in fact it might hurt him some with his far left anti-war base since it was Powell that gave the infamous WMD speech that set up the war in Iraq. It also take some of the sting out of Obama's attempts to hang the Bush administration around McCain's neck

There may have also been a bit of payback revenge motive involved as well after he was removed as Sec. of State. He also has worked to undermine President Bush for a few years now most notably when he knew his man Richard Armitage had outed Valerie Plame to Bob Novak but allowed Scooter Libby, Dick Cheney and Karl Rove to take the heat for it. So I say good riddance Obama can have him since he was a pretty lousy and ineffective SoS to begin with.

It's sad. He's not the Colin Powell I once knew. He's picked his side with a view toward his historical legacy, but he's bet on the wrong side. A kind of fizzle out to his life story.
Deep insside you know he's decided not to put country first. He's a sad old racist in his old age.Shame!

Walt did a post on this one too, Goat. He's very disappointed that Powell did this. Many of my commenters weren't surprised by it though.
