What, the medias greatest Republican moderate has doubts with Obama’s agenda … will this get air time on the networks?
Colin Powell suddenly is concerned and realizes that the country has not changed, but his support for Obama’s agenda has. You mean Americans don’t want to pay more taxes? How clueless could one be and what worse advice was every offered? And no, you are not a Republican.
Colin Powell proves to be the voice of reason not to listen to. Talk about your waffling on an important issue. First he supports Barack Obama and taxing Americans stating that Americans want to pay taxes for services, now suddenly, not so much. Hey Colin, can I have some syrup and butter on those waffles with a side of hash browns! So what has happened to make Colin Powell change his mind?
Maybe it’s the ground swell of American outrage bubbling below the surface, the consumer confidence going down, the growing number of unemployed people and the fact that Obama’s policies are accomplishing nothing but putting us in debt. Maybe it is actually because Americans do not want to pay higher taxes for services!
Colin Powell stated in May 2009 that Americans wanted to pay more taxes. I guess the moderate Republican believed VP Biden’s BS that paying taxes is patriotic.
Now, suddenly Powell doubts Obama’s agenda as it will increase the size of the federal government and debt too much. Really Mr. Wizard?
Colin Powell, one of President Obama’s most prominent Republican supporters, expressed concern Friday that the president’s ambitious blitz of costly initiatives may be enlarging the size of government and the federal debt too much.
“I’m concerned at the number of programs that are being presented, the bills associated with these programs and the additional government that will be needed to execute them,” Mr. Powell said in an excerpt of an interview with CNN’s John King, released by the network Friday morning.
As The Gateway Pundit aptly states to Powell’s comments regarding the US not being able to afford Obama’s out of control spending, “Gee, ya think? Obama’s only quadrupled the national deficit in one year.”
The rats are jumping off the S.S. Obama.
