    Colin Powell is coming to my post next week to do a book signing. He was on FOX last night and he's on Fox & Friends right now.

    Seems to me he's just trying to give Obama legitimacy.

    I think his reputation is shot.

    What do you'all think???

    Only hit to Colin Powell's reputation is when he lied about WMDs to push Bush's war for oil.

    .

    My guess would be that, if he's disappointed in Obama, he's trying to give himself legitimacy after backing the guy. Public figures like this have nice, big, fat egos. Publicly back someone and they don't perform as you predicted, and you start spinning.

    If that's the case.....if he was a liar.....then who's to say he's not lying about his thoughts on Obama?

    If he lied about WMDs he very likely is lying about Obama being a good president.

    Bush could have ruined Powell's career, Obama has no control over Powell.
