Watch the COnservatives jump ship!
A Stake thru the Heart of McCain….
WOW! General Powell jumped ship and endorsed Obama. I can say that I was truly surprised by this. He had to change parties to do so, this after having contributed the max allowable for an individual to McCain earlier this year.
In his statement he said “ McCain’s take on the financial crisis was naïve” and that “running mate Sarah Pallin was not ready to serve as President” and “the republican party has demonized Muslims.”, even though hundreds of Muslim Americans are serving in Americas armed forces”. Powell states that he is not looking for a cabinet position or any position within the Obama administration. Personally, I believe he would make one hell of a Secretary of Defense. However, after being lied to by the Bush administration and being used as an unwitting accomplice to one of the biggest lies ever told to the American people he might want to sit this one out. If it was me, I would want to clear my reputation and get back in the good eyes of Americans by being a vacillator of change.
Oh yeah, does anyone remember what McCain’s campaign slogan was before he also embraced “change”?
