Colin Powell, one of President Obama's most prominent Republican supporters, expressed concern Friday that the president's ambitious blitz of costly initiatives may be enlarging the size of government and the federal debt too much.

"I'm concerned at the number of programs that are being presented, the bills associated with these programs and the additional government that will be needed to execute them," Mr. Powell said in an excerpt of an interview with CNN's John King, released by the network Friday morning.

Mr. Powell, a retired U.S. army general who rose to political prominence after a long and accomplished military career, said that health care reform and many of Mr. Obama's other initiatives are "important" to Americans.

But, he said, "one of the cautions that has to be given to the president -- and I've talked to some of his people about this -- is that you can't have so many things on the table that you can't absorb it all."

His opinions change with the direction of the wind. He justs wants to stay with whats popular. A recent poll showed 60% of people are conservative. A DUer got banned for posting it yesterday.

I am concerned about Powell running his mouth off about how great the O was, his support of affirmative action, his statements about increasing government, his statements about his liberal social agenda, etc. Just STFU up or switch to the democratic party. The last thing Repubs need is another RINO to run for any office from dogcatcher to the Presidency.
