Colin Powell endorses Barack Obama

As I predicted yesterday, Colin Powell has endorsed Barack Obama for President. I think that Powell cuts right to the heart of the matter here:

“We have two wars. We have economic problems. We have health
problems. We have education problems. We have infrastructure problems.
We have problems around the world without allies,” he said. “And so
those are the problems the American people want to hear about, not
about Mr. Ayers, not about who is a Muslim and who is not a Muslim.”

    I am sorry but I feel his decision was racial and I am very disappointed in Colin Powell. I always respected Colin and would have voted for him if he every ran. I am concerned about Obama’s connection to Bill Ayers. Is this Colin’s job to get the attention off of this. Shame on him. Yes we have economic problem but who cause this failure. Dodd, Charlie Rengal, Charlie Shumer and of course Obama made out well from Fanny mae. The banking failure is due to the democrats and it is a scandal that will not be addressed. Where is the cry of outrage from Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. I don’t know how they can look at themselves in a mirror or not worry about facing GOD.
    Remember Colin Powell was involved with the beginning of the Iraq war and he knows the information that was given to the president and helped with decision. What has Obama offered him besides the racial issue. GOD BLESS AMERICA it sure needs it.

    Perhaps when you look at Obama and Powell, all you see are black men, and interpret their actions accordingly. However, no one who actually watched Powell’s appearance on Meet The Press would possibly conclude that this was somehow a racially-motivated action.
