I knew it was a matter of time before the Republicans started dissing Colin Powell for endorsing President Obama for a second term. John McCain, who didn’t get Powell’s endorsement in 2008, denounced the former Secretary of State under George W. Bush, saying he was disappointed in the retired general.
“General Powell, you disappoint us and you have harmed your legacy even further by defending what is clearly the most feckless foreign policy in my lifetime,” McCain told Brian Kilmeade on his radio program.
Um, I guess John McCain forgot Mitt Romney agreed with much of President Obama’s “feckless foreign policy?” Or is he still sour on that missed endorsement in 2008? Let’s not ignore the fact that Colin Powell has foreign policy experience John McCain doesn’t and he’s just whining like a baby. Mitt Romney has been all over the place on every issue raised on the campaign trail:
“I’m not quite sure which Gov. Romney we would be getting with respect to foreign policy,” Powell said, citing his shifting positions on Afghanistan, Iraq, and other key policy debates. He added that “my concern … is that sometimes I don’t sense that he has thought through these issues as thoroughly as he should have.”
