Since when does Collin Powell like liberals?

Collin Powell is allegedly a life-long Republican.

My theory is Powell is endorsing Obama on the grounds that he was fired by Bush, and he is infatuated by Obama's skin color.

Can anybody name a single white socialist liberal Collin Powell has ever endorsed or associated with?

    Did you listen to Colin Powell's endorsement of Obama? I believe he covered his reasons very well. If you didn't, watch it now--

    I don't think Powell has every endorsed any other Democrat before. That should make you realize that this was an important step for him and that he gave it a lot of thought. As he said, he waited until he had seen all of the debates hoping to see one good thing that could justify his endorsement of McCain. Evidently he just couldn't find a reason to do that. I don't think it had anything to do with skin color. As he said, if that was the reason for his endorsement, he would have endorsed Obama months ago.

    Because Powell is an intelligent man who can see the disaster that the Republic party has been for the USA. He's not liberal, that's a joke - he's just less right wing than McCain. As is Obama, only Conservative politicians have a chance of making it, just some are less right wing than others. Hell in the UK Obama would be considered right wing and would be welcomed into the Conservative Party. It's all a matter of perception.

    Powell's votes over the years surely have been all over the place and that is how it should be and that is how intelligent people vote.

    Forgot some people in McCain's camp didn't you.

    And for the people who quote and support Limbaugh. He calls one of our finest Citizens a Racist. L. is the BIGGEST racist ever.

    The behavior he has been displaying recently indicates that he must be under the influence again. He always is addicted to one thing or another. This time it is spreading hatred towards some of our Citizens.

    Wish we could deport him to an uninhabited Island.

    Liberals are not evil, and Colin Powell did the right thing in endorsing Obama. Whoever says otherwise is angry. Angry the 8 year reign is nearly over. It is so sad for them.

    Why does he have to be infatuated with Obama's skin color? Maybe he realizes that the Repubs are running a dirty, sleazy campaign. Obviously you didnt watch his speech on Meet the Press when he intially came out with who he was voting for. Colin Powell is a very prominent figure in politics, and you probably wouldn't have a problem with him if he were voting for McCain. Why can't he just vote for Obama based on his policies? Why do you McCain supporters have to link everything back to skin color? So disgraceful.

    And just to have you know, there are PLENTY republicans who are voting for Obama. It isn't just Powell.

    convinced! And Powell's endorsement of that mendacity, racist bigot could sound alarm bells for all White voters. we are continually being suggested as racists for conserving the various negatives of barry hussein Osama by human beings that're extra racist than shall we ever be. do you want a President who sees race first and more advantageous? do you want an offended racist woman as our First woman? Payback time? Vote John McCain, the actual American, for President for each and each and every of the human beings, no longer merely 13%. .

    It's ironic that the main argument Obama had against the Bush administration was the war in Iraq, now he wants to give one of the main architects of that war a prominent job in his own administration. Hypocracy at it's finest.

    Powell doesn't like liberals. He likes his leaders with brains. He has seen the folly of having one whose intellect didn't match the rigors of the job.

    Collin Powell is now seeing the err of his ways and is turning liberal because he sees that Obama's plan is the right way to go. Powell left Bush because he did not want to be involved in that corruption anymore. It has nothing to do with race. Can you name a single white socialist liberal that ran after Bush??? No!!! Powell is just now changing his direction.
