Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, who endorsed Democrat Barack Obama for president in 2008 despite serving three Republican presidents, said Sunday that Obama needs to change his approach in the White House because voters are feeling overwhelmed by sweeping new laws that expand the scope of government.
‚ÄúThe president also has to ... shift the way in which he has been doing things,‚ÄĚ Powell said on NBC‚Äôs ‚ÄúMeet the Press.‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúThe American people feel that too many programs have come down. There are so many rocks in our knapsack now that we‚Äôre having trouble carrying it.‚ÄĚ...
He (Powell) lost me when he, supposidly a "moderate republican", passed up the chance to endorse a fellow so-called "moderate republican" (McCain) in favor of his democratic opponent (Obama) who not only is NOT moderate but is said to be one of the most liberal politicians in American history.
It's like telling everyone you know that you're a Yankees fan but that you root for the Red Sox. Makes NO sense whatsoever.
Scarey to think that this guy was once in charge of our whole military!
