After 5 years of failed taxpayer funded jobs fiasco's, green energy taxpayer funded bankruptcies, the largest tax in American history and already causing layoffs, moves to part time and companies shutting their doors....no he wasn't.
He voted black....that's all. Thank the Lord Stormin' Norman led Desert Storm and Colin was in the rear with the gear.
President Obama has created 42 months of job growth. Only a small amount of green companies failed and that was because China and Germany backed their green companies to the point that US green companies have a hard time competing. Returning the wealthy to the previous tax level is not even an increase. The recession caused the layoffs and that was before President Obama took office.

General Schwarzkopf did a fantastic job in Desert Storm. He still answered to Powell.

Powell was one of the first black people who was promoted in the military, because of Affirmative Action. He was involved in a scandal where orders were given (he doesn't know who) to destroy a whole village, women, and children, turns out the men fled. Suddenly we needed a black General. He is a RINO, and was only a Republican to get the promotion.
Wake up hon...it's time for your meds.

FYI: General Powell served this country in Vietnam and was decorated for his service. There is no affirmative action when people are shooting at you. There is do your job well and be recognized.

But not hillary and all the other dems who voted to go.....

isn't that special!? LMAO

If slick would've taken care of al queda after many attacks, Saddam after he gassed the Kurds... instead of attacking Mt. Carmel, Ruby Ridge and chasing interns..

Most Americans blame Clinton for al queda's build up to 9/11

Bush wouldn't have had to do the things he and congress agreed to do.

Screwball.

Bullshit...obama hasn't created a playdough coffee cup. Oblubmer knew that the Chinese would undersell Solyndra and the others...but hey, big tax money...declare bankruptcy, have in the contract exec stipends...oblumber and the taxpayers got conned.

The main job growth figuring into US statistics are NOT anything obama is doing..

Thirteen of the top 14 best states for business and economic competitiveness are led by Republican governors, according to the 2013 edition of an annual study by CNBC.

Topping the rankings is South Dakota, which received the best score for any state since the study began in 2007. CNBC credits South Dakota’s incredible score to tax cuts enacted after the 2010 Republican sweep of statehouses put Dennis Daugaard in the governor’s residence in Pierre…

Republicans will do well in those states where only white

Powell was led down the garden path by Bush, Rummy, Rice
Tenet and the rest of the Bush liars. They knew damn
well that there were no WMD, but he didn't. He trusted
the liars. Naive? You bet. Criminal like the rest of them?
I don't think so.

He was suckered by them.

General Colin Powell is a registered republican… but he isn’t the self-hating token Uncle Tom that Allen West and other Black right-wingers show themselves to be. Voter ID laws backfired in 2012 and republicans are just further alienate them politically…
And that makes me soooooo HAPPY.
Uncle Tom Powell hasn't voted Republican in over a decade. You've got to get your lies straight, Mister Fake.

Bush made a mistake to give him a chance.
