How was that Jamaican Independence gala in August?
More to the point, how does your recent endorsement of #OccupyResoluteDesk square with the idea of a commander abandoning his troops in their hour of need?
This bit from Hayward stretches credulity, emphasis mine:
But I appraised the genius of Powell’s endorsement when I saw Chris Matthews’ reaction to it: “Do we really want to go back to people who got us into war in Iraq?” I’m sure by this Matthews means that a President Romney would be Bush III, but might this not work even better on those lefty voters who see Obama as Bush III? If the person who sold the Iraq War at the UN is now selling us Obama, I can see another hundred thousand votes going to the Green and Libertarian Party candidates. It’s right out of the Rush Limbaugh “Operation Chaos” playbook. Powell may have just won Wisconsin for Romney.
That seems too clever by half, Steven. Whatever damage is done in one state (an maybe Wisconsin really is that loopy, harboring a TrogloPundit like it does) but various ethnic and military constituencies would more than outweigh the damage in cheese-land, I should think.
Except that, based upon the Benghazi rumors tumbling like skeleton bones out of that Libyan closet, nobody but said skeletons should be brain-dead enough to cast a ballot for #OccupyResoluteDesk.
Seriously. I can’t figure out why the ex-chairman of the Joint Chiefs, and also former Secretary of State, would endorse such a useless piece of work as Barack for any office. Nor is it fair to play any guilt-by-association card with Farrakhan. But that does add a certain interesting angle, doesn’t it?
