Colin Powell endorses Obama

Moreover, his remarks here are pretty brilliant: thoughtful, concise, and spot on.

4 Responses to “Colin Powell endorses Obama”

  1. No surprise. About 98% of black people will be voting for Barack Obama. Yet, ironically they are the ones who are complaining about racism.

    Obama is no Bill Clinton. Clinton is a de-regualtor just like John McCain. Clinton was the one who introduced NAFTA, which McCain supports.

    Obama is more of a extreme leftist. $1 trillion in new spending, more government programs and interventions, sending welfare checks to 45% of the 95% of the people in his tax plan because 45% of those people don’t even get taxed.

    Politicians like Obama are such pimps. They promise to spend a trillion dollars on you, but they don’t tell you that they are using YOUR MONEY!

    Obama’s Black Liberation Theology is based on Marxism for black people, the foundations of Communism. Even Bill Ayers was an extreme leftist.

    Our economy is very important, McCain is better for our economy. I hope people get educated before they vote.

  2. I’m pretty sure Powell didn’t say one word about voting for Obama because he’s Black. And in fact, both Obama and Powell are at least as White and they are Black, a fact that people consistently keep forgetting.

    Obama is actually not all that liberal. This is a great distortion of the Republicans. He’s pretty pro-military and talks constantly about wanting to trim social services to eliminate programs that “aren’t working.”

    He votes classic Democratic in many ways, but in other ways represents a new kind of Democrat: religious Christian, fiscally conservative (more so than Bush’s 8 years!) and socially moderate.

    He only looks “liberal’ if you hold him up next to Palin, and now, the “new McCain” who has become yet another pawn of the religious right that has taken over the Republican party.

  3. Suddenly because Powell is endorsing obama he is not as evil as he used to be? Yet, Powell was the one encouraging the Iraq war claiming they had WMD. Anyone with intelligence knows that Powell is endorsing based on race.

    98% of black people are voting for obama just because he is black. White people are split between obama, nadar, and McCain. Think about it.

    The truth is this is a race campaign. The Democrats control the senate and congress and have the lowest approval rating in US history. The Democrats couldn’t even beat Bush in the elections thus why they are going after the black vote in the US, about 45 million blacks. Thus, why obama voted present over 130 times, avoided the tough issues, and never challenged his party leaders on senate to preserve his political career. Only 143 days on state senate when he decided to run for office.

    The Democrats lost because the US is not a socialist/communist system. Americans fought against Nazi Germany, their socialist party, and communist USSR for decades, just to name a few.

    Again, Clinton supported deregulation and introduced FTAs like NAFTA. That is why the US economy was strong during his administration. McCain also supports deregulation and fights for FTAs like NAFTA. These initiatives will help our economy. Our economy is very important, McCain is better for our economy. I hope people get educated before they vote.

    US businesses create US jobs. obama wants to limit the growth of US businesses, which is limiting the growth of US jobs. If you increase tax on US businesses they will either just relocate to a lower tax country taking American jobs with them, pass the added tax cost to consumers or go bankrupt. GM and Ford can barely compete globally and obama wants to tax them more. The smaller businesses that are reliant on GM and Ford will also be greatly affected, destroying more US jobs.

    The US is the land of opportunity not the land of equal outcome. Why should government take your money and give it to people who are already on welfare to spread the wealth?

    What Caused Our Economic Crisis? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RZVw3no2A4

  4. Hello Sarah/Tina at IP address 99.247.123.203,
    Why did you change your name for the second comment? Why not just take responsibility for being the same person, with the same beliefs?

    You are espousing the same lies that the McCain/Palin campaign are trying to espouse – that Obama is somehow trying to undercut American businesses, just because he wants to build in some protections for the American people. This is flat out untrue, as he has explained in great detail, and as you can read about on his website.

    While it is true that much of the deregulation that has led to this current economic crisis was supported by Clinton, it is also true that it was started in motion back by Nixon, actually, and put into motion by Reagan – both Republicans. Carter was obviously president in there and was a Democrat as well, and was largely ineffective but philosophically opposed, while Clinton was able to be president during a time of prosperity, so the need to evaluate the economic policies was minimal.

    Elsewhere on my blog I have put out my ideas and others’ ideas about why removing tax breaks for the very wealthiest individuals (those whose NET INCOMES – note, not gross – are more thank $250) and giving tax relief for those 95% of Americans who make less than that. This includes 98% of American small businesses, and 95% of Americans in general. If you make more, as Tyson Chandler says (and does) — “you can afford to take the knock.”
