Hunter and Sarah lovers... believe it or not Colin Powell just kicked McCain and Palin in the nuts. Wait - I guess he kicked McCain in the nuts twice. Once for McCain and once for Palin.
Cripes, who's clearer thinking than Colin Powell? Hunter... you still there? I'd have thought Colin must have read my posts on LRH. He's one helleva clear thinker in my book. I guess I'm not the only one able to see through the Palin fog. Just call me clear thinker
Read it and weep. This makes it a TKO for Obama.
Powell endorses Obama for president - Meet the Press, online at MSNBC - MSNBC.com
But he (Colin Powell) said McCain’s choices in the last few weeks — especially his selection of Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska as his vice presidential running mate — had raised questions in his mind about McCain’s judgment.
“I don’t believe [Palin] is ready to be president of the United States,” Powell said flatly. By contrast, Obama’s running mate, Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware, “is ready to be president on day one.”
Powell also told NBC’s Tom Brokaw that he was “troubled” by Republicans’ personal attacks on Obama, especially false intimations that Obama was Muslim and the recent focus on Obama’s alleged connections to William Ayers, a co-founder of the radical ’60 Weather Underground.
Stressing that Obama was a lifelong Christian, Powell denounced Republican tactics that he said were insulting not only to to Obama but also to Muslims.
“The really right answer is what if he is?” Powell said, praising the contributions of millions of Muslim citizens to American society.
“I look at these kind of approaches to the campaign, and they trouble me,” Powell said. “Over the last seven weeks, the approach of the Republican Party has become narrower and narrower.”
