Colin Powell, the man responsible for the fruitless search for Weapons of Mass Destruction, the Butcher of Baghdad, National Security Advisor under Ronald Reagan, CINC/FORSCOM Under Bush Sr, JCS Chair and Secretary of State, and Republican, has endorsed Barack Hussein Obama for President.
This man, a huge supporter of George W. Bush (note to the MOCM’s, this is who you keep pointing at about the last 8 years), is largely responsible for the current perceptions of the United States abroad.
You Obama folks know the failed foreign policy you keep pointing at? Here’s your man. Complaining about the war in Iraq? Here’s a guy you might want to talk to.
Worldwide perceptions aren’t pretty, folks. We’re known worldwide as “The Bully”. We’re no longer the world’s hope, rather the symbol of excess and corruption on the planet. Nice going.
Powell has offered praise for Obama, calling him an “exciting person on the political stage.”
Powell gave the keynote address at the Republican National Convention in support of George W. Bush in 2000.
“I will ultimately vote for the person I believe brings to the American people the kind of vision the American people want to see for the next four years,” he said. “A vision that reaches out to the rest of the world, that starts to restore confidence in America, that starts to restore favorable ratings to America. Frankly, we’ve lost a lot in recent years.”
And now, in a very non-partisan, non-racial endorsement, this participant in Bilderberg and Bohemian Grove has selected Obama as his candidate of choice for President. As if the world had been waiting with baited breath to see which candidate he’d pick.
A man is known by the company he keeps. Obama is now endorsed by both Powell and Louis Farrakhan.
And Bilderberg. Just sayin.
