Oh so now he's no longer a luying Bush crony or maybe he wants the media on his side because see how they destroy people they are against? And from what I've seen it's safer to be on the democrats side unless you haven't noticed the nastines coming out of them.
Or maybe Powell is just lobbying for a job.
It's different culture out there.
Enjoy you new Amerika when we see the most bloated and corrupt governemnt we will ever experience.
If you are still blogging a year form now I will tell you "I told you so"

It sure takes guts to be "anonymous" doesn't it?

And it sure takes special GOP blinders to NOT see that W has already lapped the field in the "bloated and corrupt governemnt" race.

What a cowardly, ill-informed and pathetic post. I really hope you DO hear back in a year's time. But it's not like anyone whose head is so far up his or her (or Karl Rove's) ass is going to have any different view by then...

VET, though it pains me to stoop to your level, here goes...

I know you are, but what am I?

OK, for the rest of you, no, this endorsement does not mean I have forgiven Colin Powell for his role in pushing the fraudulent Bush agenda. I seriously doubt he has forgiven himself, either.

What I really wish is that John McCain would actually put Country First and end his campaign now instead of waiting for the election. I'd love to hear him say, "You know what, America? I'm a big enough man to admit that Barak Obama is what is best for this country, so I'm ending my campaign and endorsing Obama for president. I hope you will give him the loyalty and support as President that you would have given me or any Republican."

That's what I wish. But the man has made peace with being a puppet.

VET, how can you criticize Powell for hypocrisy and not have any problem with the fact that the John McCain who is fronting the Republican ticket has been remade into nearly the exact opposite of everything he has stood for in the past?

So you are for big government and socialism?
McCain has to counter it's a campaign.
You belive Obam is actually fo the middle class? He used to say the poor and bash the rich but middle class sounds better even though the middle class has a biiger tax pool to take from.
You'll see if he wins how that goes.
Get all your dental work done while you can. I hear there will be aloooong waiting list. Of course sweet air will not be included.

Are you serious?

Jesus, you people are freaking desperate and stupid.

Do you really want to go there? Especially when your guy was born in the Panamal Canal Zone?

Is that the best you've got?

Panam Canal? Are you friggin kidding me? His father was stationed there while serving in the military(The American Military). Hardly a comparison.
Which military was Obama's father serving in Kenya? The Odinga ethnic cleansing party?

So, let me get this think that the child of an American Citizen serving in the military born outside US borders is a "natural born citizen" but the child of an American Citizen (Obama's mother) is not a "natural born citizen" if they are born outside the borders of this nation simply because in the latter case the American Citizen is not in the military?

Never mind that Obama was, in fact, born in Hawaii. I'm not suggesting that McCain is ineligible for the office of president by virtue of the geography of his birth. There are plenty of other reasons why he should be ineligible. I'm merely asking if you seriously believe that no American Citizen who happens to be pregnant should ever travel abroad during their pregnancy for fear of permanently disqulalifying their child from running for the highest office in the land if that birth should occur prior to their return to the United States.

You will recall I was not questioning McCain's right to run for that office, but merely pointing out that denying Obama's right on that (false) charge necessarily opens up the debate for your candidate's right under the same scrutiny.

It might be better to argue actual issues. Oh, right, you couldn't possibly win if you did that.

Oh please your Obama can do no wrong.
The least experienced person ever to run.
You lefties have taken to this cult like following of this guy. It's rather amusing and sad at the same time. Just because he has a degree does not him a qualified presidential candidate make. I am thinking experience and understanding of actual real issues not "dreams" and "hope" matters.
That is still stuck in the sixties era along with LSD.

No, he can do wrong. I wasn't with him on his vote regarding FISA.

I don't like his continuing to sanction Faith Based Initiatives.

I think your accusation that he can do no wrong in the eyes of his supporters is more about how he can do no right in your own eyes.

Your side throws out a lot of accusations which more accurately reflect what your own side is doing and thinking. For example, your ranting about ACORN when it is clear that voter suppresion tactics and the K-Street Projects are far more serious threats to democracy than people who are attempting to defraud ACORN by turning in bogus registration forms in order to get a paycheck without doing any work.

You claim to want to spread democracy and at the same time do everything in your power to create a one party system in the United States and paint everyone who disagrees with you as an enemy of democracy.

I don't get it.

You yourself have disdain for your own candidate, and only a few weeks ago Savage, Limbaugh, Mike Reagan, Hannity, all those places from which you collect your own cups of Kool-ade were saying it would be better to have Hillary in the White House than John McCain.

You roasted Kerry for his flip flopping, in particular about being for something before he was against it, but you give McCain a complete pass on the largest number of truly dangerous flip flops in history.

It staggers the mind, really, that we are at a stage in this nation's history where a campaign such as the one McCain is running has even a 40% chance of victory.

Even many high ranking and respected Republicans are endorsing Barack Obama. Why? Because they are actually, truthfully, putting country first and they are able to rise above politics and say the Emperor has no clothes, this brilliant and reasonable young man is the best chance our nation has to regain the prominence and dignity it lost under George W. Bush.

What's keeping you from doing the same?

At least unlike Obama he doesn't need te media to tell us how to interepret whent he says. Every thing said by Obama,his wife,his VP and everyone else he is connected to is protected. McCin just doesn't have the media on his side anymore. Obam s their new prodigy. Repblicans are endorsing him because they believe he is going to win and that makes them teflon for the media when go against Bush.
