    Oh, by the way, here's a small example of the kind of people Obama calls "friends"

    Many of the Independent persuasion, yes. ;)

    Powell does not have to be "loyal" to anyone, he is a free citizen.

    In as much as he'll pretty much have his pick of positions in the new government (if he decides to do so - rather than release a series of books about his nighmare experieces in the Bush administration), I think OUR country will be just fine.;)

    Powell isn't going to change anyone's mind, this late. I'm sure Obama will be glad to accept it, and probably wishes it was earlier, but this is mostly something the MSM can get excited about, after a long, long, long campaign that's winding down and where real, breaking new, is becoming harder to create.

    They're shocked, shocked to you hear, to hear Powell say that these negative attacks implying Obama is a Muslim and that he's a terrorist turned Powell against the McCain campaign!! Why John McCain NEVER said that! Of course, they're quick to point out that Obama stays above the fray and has surrogates do his dirty work, but that's all forgotten now. They're shocked. JOHN McCAIN never said that! What a bunch of f**king hypocrites these idiots are.

    Funny, listening to Powell. I'm trying to recall the last time I heard a political competitor of Obama mention anything about muslim. But, Powell has repeated it 3 times as if it's some daily attack. Powell also said "the American people don't want to hear about Ayers." I'd like to thank Powell for telling me what I do and don't want to hear. While delivered much better, the content of his endorsement instantly reminded me of a typical John Kerry speech.

    Are you that deluded that Colin Powell (a man who has served his country with distinction and honor) can't endorse a candidate for President that you don't like without being a traitor to his country and his ethics? I don't like Obama but I'm not going to go crazy baboon ass moon bat on Mr. Powell for it.

    DU is <==== that way.

    Well done, CW, you are now in the same basket as LP and Eyelids.
    As I thought. Nothing I said was incorrect. Whether Faux News is more balanced than the NY Times is an interesting discussion, but nothing that is relevant to the statement I made. I acknowledged that McCain did not call Obama either a Muslim or a terrorist. My point was that both candidates let surrogates do that for them, a point that Faux news brings out when an Obama surrogate attacks McCain.

    As for being in the same basket as LP and Eyelids, I would say that none of us is in the "same basket." Eyelids is an avowed socialist who will vote for Obama; LP is, well, I'm not sure, but will vote for McCain; I'm a libertarian and will either vote for Barr or write in my Senator's name.

    So, again I ask, what did I say that was incorrect? As usual, you've got nothing. Why don't you now follow your typical chain of argument and start the name calling and vulgarities?
