Well, sad to say but Colin Powell just lost much of the respect I held for him. Not only is his support surprising, but so is his explanation behind
such. He went so far as to say: "What if Obama is a Muslim, what difference would it make?", and "Obama is Transformational". Nothing against
Islam, but yes it would obviously be a MAJOR problem, through both presenting a serious Conflict of Interest, and bringing forth questionable ties
associated with his mentoring and terrorist organization endorsements. These are comments I expect from an ill-informed, naive individual, which is
not what I ever considered Colin Powell.
BTW, I always believed that Colin Powell would have been a truly befitting candidate for the first Black American President. The reason being that he
would have been the best candidate, period, regardless of race. He also lacks the extremist ties which Senator Obama has, and we know where Colin
Powell stands (or stood) as far as being a Patriot. This is extremely disappointing.
Odd is it not, that the "Party" which might place the first supposedly "Black" President into the White House, is the same Party which promoted
Slavery, Jim Crow, Segregation, and Racism from the very beginning? Colin Powell was in the appropriate "Party" for such an opportunity, but I will
leave that for another debate.
