Colin Powell Backs Obama for President

Posted on October 20, 2008. Filed under: Barack Obama | Tags: , , , , , |

Over the weekend General Colin Powell, of Gulf War and GWBush Term 1 fame, endorsed Barack Obama for President of the United States.
Enough said? Almost. Some might merely dismiss the endorsement as one black man voting fir another black man. Fortunately both of these men are much more than their skin color. For staunch conservative Republican Powell to back Obama tells us a great deal about Senator Obama AND Senator McCain. Let’s not forget that Powell was the Army general that invaded Iraq following their invasion of Kuwait along with General Scwarzkoff. This is the same conservative Republican that, once deciding not to run himself, joined President Bush’s cabinet as Secratary of State, is a 4-star general, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and former White House national security advisor.
This endorsement signals the feeling, even among conservatives, that Sen. McCain will continue Bush/Cheney’s catastrophic policies. It also signals the belief that Barak Obama is the right man for the most important job in the world. This is a belief not taken lightly by one of the most highly regarded men that has ever served the U.S. government and military. This tells us that Powell believes Obama’s plans for Iraq are the right ones. It tells us that Powell believes Obama to be the best hope for our foreign policy. It tells is that Obama’s plans for us domestically outshine those of his opponent, McCain.
It also tells us that this race is all but wrapped up. Hey. Joe the Plumber. Take that!

Suddenly because Powell is endorsing obama he is not as evil as he used to be? Yet, Powell was the one encouraging the Iraq war claiming they had WMD. Anyone with intelligence knows that Powell is endorsing based on race.

98% of black people are voting for obama just because he is black. White people are split between obama, nadar, and McCain. Think about it.

The truth is this is a race campaign. The Democrats control the senate and congress and have the lowest approval rating in US history. The Democrats couldn’t even beat Bush in the elections thus why they are going after the black vote in the US, about 45 million blacks. Thus, why obama voted present over 130 times, avoided the tough issues, and never challenged his party leaders on senate to preserve his political career. Only 143 days on state senate when he decided to run for office.

The Democrats lost because the US is not a socialist/communist system. Americans fought against Nazi Germany, their socialist party, and communist USSR for decades, just to name a few.

Again, Clinton supported deregulation and introduced FTAs like NAFTA. That is why the US economy was strong during his administration. McCain also supports deregulation and fights for FTAs like NAFTA. These initiatives will help our economy. Our economy is very important, McCain is better for our economy. I hope people get educated before they vote.

US businesses create US jobs. obama wants to limit the growth of US businesses, which is limiting the growth of US jobs. If you increase tax on US businesses they will either just relocate to a lower tax country taking American jobs with them, pass the added tax cost to consumers or go bankrupt. GM and Ford can barely compete globally and obama wants to tax them more. The smaller businesses that are reliant on GM and Ford will also be greatly affected, destroying more US jobs.

The US is the land of opportunity not the land of equal outcome. Why should government take your money and give it to people who are already on welfare to spread the wealth?
