But what exactly to make of Colin Powell's reasoning behind his decision to endorse Mr. Transformation? Here's Rush Limbaugh's take:
A good point, that last one. Did a Democrat elevate Powell to the various positions he's held in two Republican administrations? Which party was it that "transformed" the cabinet (in a meaningful way) so that it "looked like America"?
"Secretary Powell says his endorsement is not about race. OK, fine. I am now researching his past endorsements to see if I can find all the inexperienced, very liberal, white candidates he has endorsed. I'll let you know what I come up with.
"I was also unaware of his dislike for John Roberts, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Anthony Kennedy and Antonin Scalia. I guess he also regrets Reagan and Bush making HIM a 4-star and Secretary of State AND appointing his son to head the FCC. Yes, let's hear it for transformational figures."
And what exactly makes Obama transformational anyway, considering the fact that he has no record of achievement and has been on every side of every issue in recent months?
I think we all know the answers. There's only one reason Powell has decided to endorse the (half) black candidate for president. Whether he's ready to admit it or not.
