Colin Powell's Endorsement Illogic

I respect Colin Powell. And I also have significant political differences with him. Such is still possible in our current political climate. The fact that someone does not subscribe to your brand of politics or worldview does not preclude them from the ranks of the respected and respectable. Too many forget this.

That said, Powell's endorsement of Barack Obama for president seems founded upon some rather troubling issues, and his argument is as much if not more couched in dislike or distaste for the McCain campaign than subscription to Obama's positions, proposals and views.

Powell also said he was "troubled" by Republican personal attacks on Obama, especially false intimations that Obama was Muslim and Republicans' recent focus on Obama's alleged connections to William Ayers, the 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."

What Powell said is that it's not the McCain campaign has said that Obama is a Muslim, but that it "allows" others within the party to say so. I am at a loss as to how the McCain campaign or the Republican Party can disallow others to say such stupid things as 'Obama is a Muslim.' And Powell is right to challenge, "So what if he is?" Yet, many would love the discussion to include aspects of Senator Obama's Christianity, such as his 20 years as a member of the Chicago church led for years by Jeremiah Wright. That is the discussion of Mr. Obama's religion that the campaign and the Republican Party has not "allowed."

To be sure, if we care to take a walk down the road of discourse that either of the campaigns allow or disallow from the populace, we need step no further than the Missouri 'Truth Squad' or the more recent drubbing of 'Joe the Plumber.' The Obama campaign has shown no sign of 'not allowing' these 'political silence through personal punishment' campaigns.

Powell also dismisses as irrelevant Obama's long time links to William Ayers, which he brushes aside as seemingly brief chance acquaintances. To be sure, John McCain did himself few favors by referring to the domestic terrorist as "washed up" and "irrelevant," both of which Powell uses to buttress his admonition of the McCain campaign's challenge for disclosure of Senator Obama's relationship to Ayers, which is more than an acquaintance. How is this relationship, one which changes in its description by Barack Obama himself as the challenge continues, out of bounds for discussion?

Conservatives will and do have myriad other objections to Colin Powell's endorsement of Senator Obama for President of the United States, including his stated preference to have Obama appoint two liberal Supreme Court Justices rather than two more conservative Justices appointed by a President McCain. And those arguments - both for and against - are legitimate political debate.

But the above two cited reasons as given by Colin Powell for not supporting McCain and Republicans in deference to Senator Obama and Democrats are reasons lacking logic, not reasons of political discourse.

The Exposer:

I got a kick out of the line about Obama being a "transformational figure." Well that could be said of every country that had a totalitarian dictator in place...

In any event, Powell has proven himself what we've suspected for years. He's a racist, sexist, left-wing, backstabbing pig with zero sense of loyalty, and willing to place our country at grave jeopardy. He said it himself that Obama had no experience to be President, yet he feels the melanin content of his skin overrides zero experience and his ultraleftist radical record and associations.

13 years ago I was in Washington, DC when Powell was mulling over running for President and when a Black cabbie I was speaking to got on the subject, he said Powell was completely untrustworthy and no good. The cabbie wasn't describing Powell as such because he was a Republican, but because he said he knew he was a liberal weasel. The cabbie was 100% right.

"Colon Colonel Powell", formerly of the, "Chief, Staff of Joints" as "Rita from Detroit" used to call him on the Rush Limbaugh show is 4-square behind the act of giving the Gitmo killers (No you commie libs -ie; dick turbin, brian, etc- not OUR guys, the ones our guys are gaurding) complete access to Americas' Constitution. Something those serving in uniform don't even have full access to.

So, although I too respect his service, it is quite clear the fine General in retirement is suffering from a severe case of "Cranial Mushentitis", also known as: BDS, Liberalis-Ostiostupidious, Dementia, or, Rejistracione' de Democratia.

By throwing in with Barack "The Most Liberal" Obama, he has lost all credibility and lost my respect in perpetuity as well. That funny line Schippert had the other day applies right here, something like, "Going for Obama is like reaching for the anchor as the Titanic slips under the surface", or somethin' like that. You get the pic.. The man has NO excuse for being so irresponsible. No intelligent adult does.

The very same Powell who advised Bush I NOT to get U.N. authorization to depose Saddam in '91 that if obtained the "highway of death" leading to Baghdad would have resulted in a Saddam hanging then and saved countless lives, both American and Iraqi AND billions of dollars spent since?

I agree S.S. For Powell to waste his breath and everyone's time he could just say, "I think Obambi would be a better President." His reason is real flimsy. But then, most of his reasoning always seemed flimsy to me and not based on a reasoned foundation. I thought he was a lousy Sec. State. He was worried more about taking the State Departments view than coming up with a consistent policy. So much for him following his superior's orders.

Not sure about the Big Guy, but from most biblical accounts I'm pretty sure Jesus would be 100% behind Obama. I think he would be pleased with the current state of affairs. If he took sides, that is.

Powell's reasoning behind his support for Obama is intelligent, thoughtful. timely, and reinforces why the majority of America is ready to move ahead into the 21st century.

And I am sure there are a lot of people who don't want to have to eat their words on this guy.

Jeff:

This endorsement has revealed the pettiness and intellectual dishonesty of Colin Powell. He obviously harbors great resentment for the Bush administration for the Iraq war fiasco.

But to assert that Obama has any worldview even close to what Powell has (or at least purported to have) is ridiculous. Powell is throwing a temper tantrum because of ill will toward the Bush administration, while forgetting his inclusion in national Republican politics long before the Iraq War. Here's his big "thank you" to the people of the political party that provided him with so many opportunities.

My comments have nothing to do with race, but based on what Powell has said about an African-American president being "electrifying" and his own support for affirmative action....one can reasonably assume race is a factor in this non-sense of an endorsement.

Mr. Powell is a hero and leader, but the reasons he gives for an Obama presidency are nowhere near rooted in sincerity.

Faith+1:

The bigger question is whether Colin Powell's endorsement actually means anything? Politically, he can only sway undecided voters. I question his influence in that arena.

Voters to the right won't care since he left the job as Sec of State. Voters on the Left would vote Obama regardless if he had endorsed McCain. Had he endorsed McCain we would have seen an explosion of "Uncle Tom" claims from the Left. Here we can see many on the right screaming "closet liberal".

Frankly, I don't think Powell influences anyone in any way with his endorsement--however, those on the extremes of either politically leaning might influence undecided voters by their reactions.

I heard Powell's rationale for the endorsement over the radio while driving. His attempt at justifying his endorsement by stating the Ayers issue was irrelevant was beyond comprehension. Glad Colin wasn't at Fort Dix in the 1970s. And then his VERY LAME attempt at justifying the Obama tax cuts was laughable. If you want to endorse the guy, then fine. But please do not try to justify policies with which you have no clue or sound like a socialist yourself. And yes, Colin, Obama economic policies are socialism.

It's good to know that unrepentant terrorist do not affect Colin's judgment.

Jody:

I was not surprised by this announcement. Powell has always been liberal and a thorn in both Bush's side.

I have always said that Powell would have made a great democrat presidential candidate. I would feel far more comfortable with Powell in the White House then Obama with him as a Democrat.

Obama is a crook. Powell associating himself with a crook makes me begin to question his integrity. Within a year of Obama's presidency (God help us if that happens) he will be under suspicion of his former ties, voter fraud, bullying, etc... Democrats will be under suspicion as well. When the fairness doctrine is set in place, extreme modifications to the election process combined with intimidating opponents effectively remove all chances of being overthrown, it will be the rest of us that will need to bring their administration to justice. There will always be a place to try these folks and by then it will not be hard. At that point I hope Americans can see the benefit to vote conservative to set the clock back to a time when our constitution is finally followed.

I do not think Powell knows what he has done.

I hope history turns out that he never has to find out (i.e. McCain wins)

It makes my head hurt trying to follow Powell's logic.

I agree with Frazetta girl (comment #31) - my hunch is that Powell is voting for Obama simply because he's black. I don't have any problem with that per se, but Powell should just say it. Of course, he can't - that sounds kinda lame, especially coming from a former Secretary of State.

I also find it odd that Powell - a former Secretary of State - is unbothered and uncurious about the extent of the Obama-Ayers connection.

Gee, I wonder if he's troubled by Democrat personal attacks on Palin, especially false intimations that her newest baby is really her daughters and Mr. Palin is the father. I wonder if he's troubled by Democrat personal attacks on Joe the Plumber and that Obama is perpetuating the lie that Joe said he made $250k a year and even sneered at him being a plumber and his audience just thought that was so hilarious. I wonder if he's troubled by Democrat personal attacks of Condoleeze Rice, Michael Steele and even himself until he assured them he was on their side.

Somehow, I don't think he's very troubled.

The people around him were not the typical politicians, full of themselves, but people who were humble, something you see in few politicians, less lawyers, and still fewer bloggers on the daily Kos. The people who came to Jesus admitted that they had made mistakes. Obama is not ready for meeting Jesus yet.

Ryan Carey:

I find it rather interesting and amusing that the author of the original post and all the comments after fail to mention a very important piece of information - Sarah Palin.

Powell expressed disappointment in McCain's choice of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as the vice presidential nominee.

"Now that we have had a chance to watch her for some seven weeks, I don't believe she's ready to be president of the United States, which is the job of the vice president," Powell said. "And so that raised some question in my mind as to the judgment that Senator McCain made."

Even if she is not the real reason - she has now become the acceptable excuse for any conservative who wants to endorse Obama. She has become the anchor that will drag this campaign down to the bottom of the lake - all that is left to be seen is how close the Democrats will get to 60 senate seats.

Once the New York Times cover story on McCain's health records, or lack thereof, breaks today - the entire country will actually have to come to grips with the fact that Palin has absolutely no business being President - and more than enough will cast their vote accordingly.

So you guys are suddenly pissed that your "uncle tom" has come to get his own opinion? Boy, everyone loved him when he shut up and did what he was told in front of the UN in 2002.

After this little election, you're party is going to distance themselves as far as they can from your diatribes, in an attempt to restructure.
