This past few days has truly been significant. Think about it. Over the past week Barack Obama has (besides winning all three debates) had a rally in Missouri that attracted over 100,000 people.... he announced that he raised more than the last presidential campaign spent in total.... $150 million with 650,000 some new contributers and an average donation of under one $100. He has picked up the endorsement of 2 major newspapers (the Chicago Tribune and the Los Angeles Times) that have never endorsed a Democrat before. Conservative commentator Christopher Buckley, son of arch conservative William F. Buckley, quit the paper his father founded and endorsed Obama and to top it all... Retired general Colin Powell announced he was endorsing Obama.

Just the four endorsements alone... all from conservative and/or Republican voices essentially give the go ahead for other conservatives and Republicans to back and vote for Obama and the Powell endorsement will carry a huge amount of weight in the military and the veteran community.



WASHINGTON — Colin Powell will have a role as a top presidential adviser in an Obama administration, the Democratic White House hopeful said Monday.

"He will have a role as one of my advisers," Barack Obama said on NBC's "Today" in an interview aired Monday, a day after Powell, a four-star general and President Bush's former secretary of state, endorsed him.

"Whether he wants to take a formal role, whether that's a good fit for him, is something we'd have to discuss," Obama said.

Being a top presidential adviser, especially on foreign policy, would be familiar ground to Powell on a subject that's relatively new to the freshman Illinois senator. Obama has struggled to establish his foreign policy credentials against GOP candidate John McCain, a decorated military veteran, former prisoner of war and ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee.

I wouldn't be surprised Obama taps him for Sec. of Defense... after the way dumbsfeld treated Powell... it would be sweet revenge I am sure.

I'm sure Dr. Rice will also be voting for Obama - even if she

Wouldn't the logical counterpoint for this be that you are only voting for McCain because he's white? Is President Bush supporting McCain because he's white?

Or are you suggesting that mindless flocking by race is limited to blacks while white people can make much more nuanced decisions?


No, in fact it is illogical for you to think Obama is ahead in the polls without white supporters but it doesn't take too much to examine that the reason many Blacks are voting for Obama is simply because he is BLACK! My god what OTHER reason do they have?

His lack of experience?

His perpetual lies and dishonesty?

His being a student of Saul Alinsky and his membership in the Socialist New Democrats Society in Chicago?

His dealings with Tony the racketeer Rezko?

acceptance of the huge contributions he was paid to keep the Government off Fannie Mae's back to the tune of over a hundred thousand dollars?

His stellar voting record where 95 % of the time he voted "present" which is not voting at all and makes it so easy for him to say he didnt vote for the Iraq war when this chump doesn't vote for much at all period.

His stunning victory on his bid for the senate where he used his power as an attorney to inundate his competition with litigation to the point he won that seat UN-opposed. Typical chicago politics.

His 20 years of the indoctrination of hate by anti white black liberation theologist Jeremiah Wright?

His friends in Iran and the Hamas?

Oprah?

I mean seriously WHAT?

geez...i believe everything you say!!! NOT!!! the racists are really coming out of the woodwork now. and they actually believe this stuff. the secret service better have extra guard details assigned to obama and he should be wearing a flak jacket. i think the justice dept, the FBI, the secret service, should start to take these racists seriously. they are frothing at the mouth and are a serious danger to obama

Forced abortion, evil socialist healthcare, an all gay military, a president that uses diplomacy, a new wing on the WhiteBlackhouse for Hamas, a black in power, a ban on speaking in tongues. It's gonna be a hoot.

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".


I think it's preposterous for any American who declares how important the Constitution and american spirit are to them, to make a major issue of (a) the religion of the candidate (b) the fact that he or she can be a transformational figure

Bottom line, Colin Powell is 1000x more american than you are (as if that was not obvious).

A person's religion is no more indicative of their behavior than is the color of their eyes, their gender or their race.

IF Obama was Muslim it would no more mean he would be a bad president or sell us out to terrorists anymore than the concern about Kennedy's Catholicism and obedience to the Pope was.

What is important is a man's character.

Obama is winning for a large number of reasons and Powell's endorsement is just one more of many.

That is messed up on so many levels.

And you are welcome to that opinion.
It's wrong. But you are welcome to it.

I'm sure that there will be people who will flame and yell 'racist'.
Whatever. I am fully convinced that Powell is endorsing Obama
because he's black. I am not alone in this belief.


I DONT think it is RACIST to say this Flyer...

I DO think it is IGNORANT to imply that Colin Powell is less than patriotic and self serving and short sighted enough to choose a POTUS based on skin color...

Colin Powell??? Caring so little about his country that he would vote for a POTUS based on SKin Color?? REALLY FLYER?

Colin POwell, the 65th United States Secretary of State (2001–2005), under President George W. Bush?

General in the United States Army, Powell also served as National Security Advisor to Ronald Reagan (1987–1989) and as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (1989–1993), holding the latter position during the Gulf War.

Two tours in Viet Nam...that Colin Powell?

Well implying that his patriotism runs only skin deep, ITS NOT RACIST, BUT IT IS OFFENSIVE.

It does show how much you know about Colin Powell.

Wow Flyers....My respect for you has evaporated. Will your sense of honesty also go the way of John McCain? Spending your dignity in bitter false ramblings as the election winds down?

I know people with security clearances both at the State Department and FBI....And your argument makes no sense.

John McCain has much much closer ties to a convicted felon... Charles Keating...Would you expect the FBI to deny him a clearance based on this?

Ayers? You want to end this election distorting the truth and out and out lieng? claiming that Obama Pals around with terrorists?

Have you figured out that it is this very negative and dishonest approach that Colin Powell has cited as the reason he has publically declared for Obama?

Sad Flyers...No dignity left with you? just desperation and BS?

blah blah blah ... get over yourselves.

Powell – Race is the major factor for support of Obama.


On “Meet the Press” Sunday, Powell’s explanation for his backing of Obama made clear that he thought Obama’s race was a major factor for his support, but not the only one.


Race as in the color of his skin or race as in how he's conducting himself.
You read and figure it out.

Powell crossed party lines once before. In 1994 to support L. Douglas Wilder for governor of Virginia. Yes, a black man.

Obama rewards Powells endorsement with an advisor position on his staff – Politics as usual.

Edited immediately to fix link.

WHERE IN THE TRANSCRIPTS does Colin Powell site race as a factor....This is some "reporters" interpretation of the word "Transformational"...what an ugly, bitter and narrow view of the world.

Geez by "transformational" Colin Powell meant "Transformational".....not black.

To infer the other is desperate and says more about the very narrow and polarized world view of the "author" and desperately distorting words to serve an agenda than anything else.

You lie Flyers...Not an insult or jab, just a fact.

Same old , Same old....Thank goodness the American people are rising above it.

Let's look at the actual transcript:


MR. BROKAW: And you are fully aware that there will be some--how many, no one can say for sure--but there will be some who will say this is an African-American, distinguished American, supporting another African-American because of race.

GEN. POWELL: If I had only had that in mind, I could have done this six, eight, 10 months ago. I really have been going back and forth between somebody I have the highest respect and regard for, John McCain, and somebody I was getting to know, Barack Obama. And it was only in the last couple of months that I settled on this. And I can't deny that it will be a historic event for an African-American to become president. And should that happen, all Americans should be proud--not just African-Americans, but all Americans--that we have reached this point in our national history where such a thing could happen. It will also not only electrify our country, I think it'll electrify the world.


I don't see race as a "major motivation" for Powell when I read this.

Unfortunately, you decided to go to a second hand source that said what you wanted it to, rather than an actual transcript of the show!!!

At NO POINT does Powell ever say that race is an important factor in his endorsement. So your sources and statements have been proven incorrect by the literal word-for-word transcript of the show, which is what you should have relied on in the first place, rather than a report of the show.

Ooops. Didn't see that others had caught the discrepancy before me. Relying on NewsMAX, a notoriously sloppy and reckless news source, wasn't very smart to begin with. Beyond that, you took it all the way to the point of saying Powell said it was the MOST IMPORTANT factor! Talk about being way, way off the mark.

I'm sorry, but FF has a point here.

Powell cites Obama being a "transformational" figure as his reason for backing him, but really, what about an Obama Presidency is transformational other than his skin color?

There is nothing transformational about his policy ideas, or his experiences. Furthermore, the policy proposals of Obama are in direct conflict with everything Powell has fought so hard for his entire career. The criticisms of the military from Obama alone should be grounds for Powell to find fault with him.

But no, Powell sees him as transformational.

I'm sorry, but I have a hard time seeing anything other than race in this decision.

I think that is part of the problem, you have a hard time seeing anything else.

It seems to me that Mr. Powell does in fact see something transformational about Barack Obama.

The nation periodically goes through periods of change. Right now, we need it worse then ever. We went through a transformational change with Bush: tax cuts for the rich, deregulation, unilateral foreign policies, etc. We now see it was a disaster and need something different. We need a transformation. Obama will bring that, endeavoring to undo the disasterous policies of the neocons.

If all you can see when someone calls Obama "transformational" is his skin color, frankly it demonstrates that's what your focused on.

Exactly. That's what you're focused on. That's what you want to see. And so your mind keeps trying to tell you it's there, even though so far nobody has offered any actual evidence to support this idea -- only their paranoid, delusional theories.

You are entitled to your opinion on whether or not an Obama presidency would be "transformational" or not, but to then take that opinion and claim it is the opinion of Colin Powell and to dismiss his actual words as falsehoods or lies covering a racially motivated decision...well it's offensive, claiming he is lieing and backing Obama because of skin color.

Your opinion, fine...not Colin Powells. He has expressed his reasoning and I take him at his word.

If it was race why did he wait so long to declare for Obama?

By "transformational" I interpret it to mean ...given Colin Powells explanation...That Obama looks to UNITE this country rather than DIVIDE it for political purposes and that John McCain has conducted a campaign that incites fear and hatred for the purposes of winning and that this crosses the line of political campaigns.

To the point....once you have encouraged a certain populace to fear and hate a given candidate, once you falsely claim them to be "palling around with terrorists"...you are encouraging hatred that will outlast the election process...hatred for a potential POTUS......you no longer are concerned about the USA, but rather just your own chances of winning.

This is John McCain's greatest failure of conscience. Scorched earth. McCain will trade a divided nation and even employ rhetoric that elevates the risk of assasination on a new POTUS.....all to win.

His motto should be COUNTRY SECOND.

Transformational means...No more of these politics. They don't work anymore. The American people are better than this and McCain and his Rovian advisors are learning the hard way that the poltics of division have passed. The American people are tired of it.

Transformational...

No more than David Dukes involvment in the Ku Klux Klan would mean he is going to be a bad Politician or Barack Obama's 20 years of Black Liberation Theology rarely talking about anything remotely close to being Biblical and only getting people riled up hating rich white people they say is the enemy. What you fail to understand is the participation and support of such personal a belief as religion is often what shapes yhour character. If Obama had any Character, he wouldn't have been involved with people like Rezko, Wright, Alinsky in the first place.

52.) University Of Chicago Hospital Pay Is Fair - LIAR, your wife's pay raise was nearly 150% her already bloated rate and the hospital is a Non-Profit Hospital, which made $100,000,000 in the last 3 years. They overcharge blacks VS whites for services, and overcharge everyone in general by 538%!

53.)I Barely Know Rezko - Only 5 Billed Hours - LIAR, you have known him for 17 years, and decided to do a real estate deal with him during a time when he was proven to be under investigation. Despite this, you divided your property and had them take off $300K before the mortgage problems started. Then Rezko's wife buys the lot beside it that you can't afford, saving you $625,000.

54.) My Donations Have Been Checked Thoroughly - LIAR, you only gave back Hsu ($72K) and Rezko (first $66K, then when caught lying $86K, then when caught lying again $150K and now caught lying YET AGAIN OBAMA, it's $250k) their money when publically called on their involvement in your campaigns.

55.) My Church Is Like Any Other Christian Church - LIAR, your church is so extreme, the pastor who married you, Rev. Wright, just got done blaming the US for 9/11 and named Louis Farrahkan their person of the year.

56.) I Disagree With My Church All The Time - LIAR, you still have yet to repudiate Wright, who married you and your wife, and you still donate large sums of money to assist the church in furthering its message - hatred and revenge. You donated in 2006 alone, $22,500 to the church that you so terribly disagree with. That is nearly $500 PER WEEK - that sure is disagreement, Senator Obama.

57.) I Have Clean Connections Despite Rezko - LIAR, you are not only connected to Exelon and Rezko, you are also connected to Hillary PAC supporter Mr. Hsu, AND an Iraqi Billionaire of ill repute, Nadhmi Auchi, who ripped off people in the Food For Oil, Iraqi deal. Seems Mr. Auchi may have helped Obama buy his million dollar property long before Obama had millions of dollars. Wonder what favors Mr. Auchi expects, when Obama leaves Iraq free to be taken over by special interests such as him.

58.) I never heard sermons like Rev. Wright's, that have been in videos all day, You Tube - LIAR! 3 days later during your Mea Culpa BS speech you said "Did I hear controversial statements while I sat in that church? Yes I did."

59.) The Passport Invasion is a conspiracy to find dirt on me! - LIAR. Your own Campaign Foreign Policy Advisor is the CEO of the company that looked into your records. PS - You had them look into yours to hide the fact you looked into Clinton's and McCain's more than a year before!

60.) Rev. Meeks has nothing to do with my campaigning - LIAR. Rev. Meeks appeared in ads for your Senate Campaign, donated to you, and helped raise money, then AND NOW. PS - He also seems to despise America.
