Colin Powell is receiving Today’s Are You Freakin’ Kidding Me? Award for completely smokin’ the koolaid and is NOW just realizing what a hidden agenda Bambi has, and because he thinks government often has to solve people’s problems. Colin, are you freakin’ kidding ME?
I believe there are two items you really need to brush up on as a priority.
- People are meant to be self reliant and not turn to the government every time they have a problem.
- Our government is solving the problems of the NY Bankers and the shadow chess players in the background, not average every day Americans.
WASHINGTON (CNN) – In a wide-ranging interview set to air Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union, one of President Barack Obama’s most prominent Republican supporters says he is ‘concerned’ about the new president’s ambitious agenda and the high price tags accompanying many of Obama’s initiatives.
“I’m a little concerned,” former Secretary of State Colin Powell says. “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.”
Powell also seems to sound a note of warning to the young president.
“I think 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. And we can’t pay for it all.”
Even as he raises concerns about the new Democratic president’s agenda, Powell also seems to back away from some of his own conservative views.
“I don’t like slogans anymore like ‘limited government.’ That’s not the right answer. The right answer is, give me a government that works.”
“The people want their problems solved,” Powell also says in the interview. “And very often, it’s government that has to do that. So let’s have good government, effective government, whether you call it limited or not.”
