    I can see why he left the Bush Administration. He has a mind of his own.

    Which is one of the major reasons why he left.

    Powell knows nothing about the military. Cheney knows everything about it. Cheney served this country with honor. 5 times during nam.

    that's actually an out-and-out lie.

    every time people were polled, they said they wanted him to be president....on both sides of the aisle.

    he just shouldn't have let them use him to lie to the U.N. and people were legitimately angry with him for that because it helped legitimize a pretend war of choice.

    but you really need to stop making stuff up.

    Because you know what's inside of everyone's mind, right Stephanie?

    Now, instead of making a sweeping generalization like a partisan hack, do you have any comments on what Colin Powell said in that video?

    LOL, I don't think I'll seek your permission to speak what's on my mind.

    and I didn't make sweeping generalizations, I was around on the net all during the Bush administration, and let me tell you, the left HATED Powell..:lol:

    So you can't make any comments on what Mr. Powell said in the vid, gotcha.
