Powell is a hack and his opinion should carry no weight. How in the hell someone with enough intelligence to make it to 4 star general can't see Barry Soetoro for what he really is, I'll never understand.
Colin, you should have stayed with a military perspective cause your political orientation isn't worth a darn - you're bemoaning the fact that the Republicans don't compromise with the Demo-rats. How does anyone compromise with pure evil?
When you were in the military did you compromise with the enemy? I think not. The real soliders - Patton, MacArthur, Eisenhower never did. Of course, you couldn't carrry their canteens with your lame stance on the worst president ever to occupy the Awful/Offal/Oaf-full Office.
