At the risk of stating the obvious, wasn’t it Colin Powell who actually signed off on the Iraq War — the very same war that Obama used his opposition to, as his gimmick to launch his presidential campaign? Is Powell really the one who Obama wants — or needs — to reassure those in doubt? To say: “See, I’m qualified! Collin Powell says that I am.”?
Powell also spent his “Meet the Press” time commenting on McCain’s economic plan. Powell, the military man, has now become an armchair economist.
