Umm geee Johnny I'm all broken up about you thinking it's feeble umm can YOU tell me what the hell her point was again?? I mean besides being
sarcastic. Did she even HAVE a point? Facts don't seem to matter to you so it's no wonder you haven't agreed that the many I have posted here,
from Obama's curiously ominous but certainly factual involvement with Communists and Radicals have gone without anyone being able to debunk them so
whether YOU BELIEVE them to be true or not doesn't change the fact they are in fact A FACT and FACTS is all I have been interested in here. NOT
Flowery adjectives to describe Obama as "electrifying" or whats grand stage he is on or that he is a "new generation" of blacks transforming the
figure of President from Black to white but that's the reason Powell is voting for him and that is OBVIOUS or he wouldn't have spent MORE time
engaged in his comments being about him being the first Black American President and more about SUBSTANCE! None of that seems to matter and with this
guy being THAT close to being "The one" do you actually think someone like Powell is going to let a little thing like lack Qualifications get in the
way of "electrifying" the world with this "transformational figure! "
Give me a break sheesh. I wish Race didn't have to be an issue either and is why I am not talking about that POWELL WAS and even admonished all us
white folk that we should also be proud. Proud of what Colin?
That he is Black? So what!
I don't think I have seen ONE person give a good reason for voting for the most unqualified, untested, inexperienced man in the worst of times in our
history so I'll ask you Johhny, what are YOUR reasons for Voting for them and lets see if you can do any better than Powell who supposedly wrote the
most eloquent most common sense reason. '
The man said NOTHING!
Oh and by the way Johhny, I think it's wonderful you think this shouldn't be about race so I am hoping you quit telling me it is for me when it
isn't but the moment someone makes their reasons for him being so electrifying about being the first Black President when what he was asked had
NOTHING to do with that but more about his resume,, then I am going to say it again that who ever does that makes it about race, and THAT is exactly
what Powell did if you read the facts verbatim of what he said.
See you have to listen to these people and you have to look for CONTEXTUAL Inconsistencies articulated as dead giveaways as to what his genuine and
honest motivations are for making this choice and they are undeniable.
I find statements like the one you posted alleging Powell said Obama could be a diplomat is indicative of Most who STILL don't KNOW what the hell the
reason was when you can't even remember it, do you make up one! Yeah maybe Obama could be an ambassador but we are talking about Presidents. I
wouldn't be so indignant but I keep seeing garbage like this all the time.
EXAMPLE: Here is how most describe Powell's comments.
Oct 20, 2008 ... Colin Powell gave the most "brilliant", "insightful", and "glowing" endorsement of Barack Obama and laid out "the most common
sense reasons why" he isn't voting McCain ..."
I am still at a loss as to how this guy is holding on to this Job writing such undeserving accolades when Powell's comments only serve to offer
anyone with an IOTA of insight the REAL reasons Powell is supporting Obama.
In just one paragraph of flowery verbal gymnastics describing his reasons for endorsing Obama, it isn't only reading between the lines we get what is
really important, what really matters most is not just getting a qualified person in Office but one that will make HISTORY as a Transformational
figure! The one we have all been waiting for!, Someone by virtue of his being Black and for no other reason as he gives NONE BUT his being a Black guy
in the right place at the right time. All his flaws are irrelevant. We must not let small stuff like that get in the way of Highly Respected
Colleagues who are more capable having the experience, get in the way of what will be an "Electrifying" "Global" sensation! the most significant
historical event then the upcoming eviction of Bush from the white house.
The FIRST BLACK AMERICAN PRESIDENT!
This is something Powell said; not only Blacks should be proud of but Whites too! Hey Colin,,I realize this stinks to high heaven of your own brand
of affirmative action but ya know what would make me proud?
A QUALIFIED, ABOVE BOARD AND HONEST BLACK AMERICAN, AMERICAN PRESIDENT.
Not the one everyone deaf dumb and blind is calling the one but an American Born Here and raised as someone respecting an American form of Government
You can be an eloquent, articulate speaker using a TelePrompTer or giving a speech where you are familiar with the text, flow, where the four second
pauses are for anticipated Applause etc. When it comes to speaking about things that have real meaning to us, regardless of their worthiness or
virtue, when ever we speak extemporaneously, no matter what it is we are trying to hide, eventually we say something that will show our true colors
and in this case, Color, was definitely at the heart of this man's decision and that color is Black.
It appears that I was right about Qualifications, and experience ( Meat and Potatoes etc,) taking a back seat to something OBVIOUSLY MORE SUBSTANTIAL!
MORE ELECTRIFYING! That the usual Caucasian "figure" of American Presidents would be "transformed".
That something this big is SO important to Powell that he even uses a form of Holds Harmless clauses in his speech in yet another dead giveaway of his
own betrayal of someone he says he has had the Highest Respect for, even saying McCain would be a Good President,, BUT! ,,,, BUT! ,,,, BUT! Ya know
John, he has known you for many years says he can trust you that you have all it takes BUT DAMN ya didn't think snubbing Powell for Palin for VP
wasn't going to bite you in the ass?
I mean, you should have at least asked him anyway whether he wanted it or not or whether everyone knows he is now and always has been a closet
Democrat who was obligated to those who advanced his Career but that all ended with GWB and this was Powell's way to pay back the piper's of the
Republican Party as ONE of the most but his indictment of McCain in addition to what his "key" reason for choosing Obama, was so flawed for someone
so intelligent that if THIS is a key reason,
I got a Bridge Ill sell ya,
"As a key reason, Powell said: "I would have difficulty with two more conservative appointments to the Supreme Court, but that's what we'd be
looking at in a McCain administration."
This is a republican saying this?????????? HUH??
So lets look at this from an even more scary reason a Republican like Powell is (yeah,, riiight) would find this scenario much more compelling as a
reason to vote for McCain, rather than Obama.
That is,, if you are REALLY a Republican,,
that this would be the first time since 1965 that liberals have dominated the White House, Congress and, potentially, the Supreme Court. Six liberal
justices sit on the Supreme Court after the immediate resignation of John Paul Stevens and Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the later resignations of Antonin
Scalia and Anthony Kennedy. This happening while the republicans may not even be able to filibuster!
So Powell's "key Reason" wasn't thought out that well and only paints him as a liberal with a liberal Agenda as REAL REASON Number two.
All that and then we have Reason Number three
Now, I am not saying this, but whether Powell knows it or not,, HE SAID IT HIMSELF. that this would be the first time since 1965 that liberals have
dominated the White House, Congress and, potentially, the Supreme Court."
an American Figure just getting the black guy IN THERE, is mission accomplished enough to satisfy Powell apparently because THIS GUY,, is the one the
same one Powell uses the same adjectives to describe Obama as in the same context he used to describe who ever will become the first Black American
President! The same exact words! That it would be a transformational figure on the world stage someone who by virtue of his BEING the first one would
electrify the world.
Well sorry to disappoint you Colin and I think I speak for many of the people from Chicago who know how politics are run there,, but Obama doesn't
He scares the hell out of me.
