“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”
~ Martin Luther King, a Republican
The Republican General Colin Powell, who served under three Republican presidents, recently endorsed Senator Government…oh, sorry, I mean Senator Obama.
Secretary Colin Powell, Republican
This latest endorsement adds Colin Powell to a growing list of pro-Obama supporters:
1) The American Trial Lawyers Association
2) The ACLU
4) The National Education Association
5) Labor unions
6) The anti-gun lobby
7) The mainstream media
8 ) Greenpeace and the Sierra Club
9) Socialist Europe
10) Hezbollah (Lebanon/Syrian terror group)
11) Hamas (Palestinian terror group and political party)
12) Fidel Castro
13) Hugo Chavez (Venezuelan “president”)
14) Vladmir Putin (Russian thug)
15) Muammar Gaddafi (Libyan dictator)
16) Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (Iranian president)
17) The Black Panthers

In 2003, Colin Powell tried to persuade the United Nations to declare war on Iraq. Likewise, he always supported a military surge, a strategy which McCain later implemented. In contrast, Obama has always opposed the (successful) surge – and now wants to retreat from Iraq.
Nonetheless, Powell endorsed Barack “I-Wish-Hussein-Were-Still-Alive” Obama. To explain his seemingly illogical endorsement, Powell stated that McCain was “not black enough.”
Okay…I admit, Powell didn’t actually say that. But you and I both know it’s true.
When Oprah betrayed her feminist ideals to support Obama over Hillary, Oprah claimed it was because her new savior would bring “hope” and “change” to the world. Apparently, Colin Powell supports these controversial platforms as well.
A recent study shows that 84% of Americans oppose wealth redistribution by the government. What a relief! I guess McCain should win an electoral landslide then. Obama recently promised to “spread the wealth around,” to keep things fair. After all, he says, wealth redistribution would be “good for everybody.” Right on, man! From each according to his ability, and to each according to his need! Stick it to the rich!
Overall, McCain and Palin have become quite aggressive lately in their campaigning. They’re on a roll! For anyone who missed the third presidential debate, I recommend you watch it online. Beforehand, McCain promised that he would “whoop [Obama’s] you-know-what.” He succeeded. It was entertaining television!

“This is pretty low Drew…I’m very disappointed that you would stoop so low as to charge that Osama Bin Laden supports Obama, among others. So your candidate is losing…it happens….that’s democracy. I had to watch Bush win, not once but twice. And the second time I had to accept….the majority of people wanted him to be president even though I felt very strongly that it was one of the most dangerous things for our country. But I never suggested anything that didn’t have facts behind it. Frankly, the Bush administration is known for a fact to have used our jets to fly Bin Laden’s relatives who were studying here in the USA out of our country on 9/12. Who knows what else they did that we don’t know about. McCain has slepted with dogs and he’s caught their fleas…he chose to stay in the kennel with Bush and Bush’s cronies…he has no one to blame but himself that people can’t trust him. The McCain of 2000 could have won this race. And Governor Palin, with her less 18 months of experience as a state governor…is not prepared to be the leader of the country. She was governor for less than 2 years, before that her resume I beleive includes sports newscaster….ok…so she knows about sports defense and offense…somehow I don’t feel comfortable with the idea that McCain could keel over and we’d be left with her to put that knowledge to work defending our country. There is nothing wrong with using facts to argue against a candidate you don’t want but when you start making stuff up….it shows you’re grasping.”

“Haha, I was actually logging in for the specific purpose of editing that one out. Give me a break, though; I was in a hurry to get this post up. I didn’t just make it up. As I mentioned, I pulled most of that list from another site. I think you are right, though: Whereas bin Laden endorsed Kerry in ’04, I haven’t been able to find any credible source stating he overtly supports Obama.
I logged in for the purpose replacing ‘bin Laden’ with the leader of Iran — which IS accurate. Done. My apologies. 😉 ”
