NOW Powell Is Concerned With Obama’s Agenda
Posted by Casey on July 3, 2009
Where the hell was he when we were telling him Obama’s agenda was concerning?
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.
Just one more victim of the rock star mob mentality that allowed Obama to get elected. Now they are finding out the truth.
