Colin Powell's Endorsement: Some Rhetorical Fresh Air
These videos speak for themselves, but I feel compelled to add that hearing Powell articulate his thoughts in plain English, making his points without pandering, mugging, speechifying, or insulting anyone, made me wish he were running for something so I could vote for him. I really admire the way he dismisses as a non-issue Obama's supposed "terrorism" through his guilt-by-association with Ayers, and gets to the true heart of the matter of Obama's religious affiliation (both real and imaginary) with the simple but poignant image of a military gravestone.
Of course we know that Powell has made mistakes in the past. This isn't one of them. In the same vein, I have to admire the way he deals at the end of the video below with Obama's alleged tax-happy "socialism" with a one minute sound bite of common sense.
