Colin Powell Jumping Ship?

George Joyce
Add Colin Powell to the ranks of Americans waking up from the Obama induced stupor.  The Washington Times is reporting that Mr. Powell has voiced serious reservations in a CNN interview about Obama’s big government agenda and its consequences for our nation and our children.  

In the CNN interview to be aired Sunday on “State of the Union with John King” Powell cautioned Mr. Obama about "budgets that are running into the multi-trillions of dollars" and "a huge, huge national debt that, if we don't pay for in our lifetime, our kids and grandkids and great-grandchildren will have to pay for it."

Haven’t conservatives been issuing these same warnings ever since Obama began his presidential campaign?  It seems rather disingenuous for Mr. Powell, an early Obama supporter, to suddenly have this epiphany after a mountain of economic evidence has portended the frightening consequences of President Obama’s budget.

Maybe it’s Powell’s way of distancing himself from the Democrats after Obama’s truly outrageous handling of recent events in Honduras and in Iran.

Remember about a month ago when Newsweek’s Evan Thomas gushed:

"I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God."

I guess even Colin Powell assumes that God would be able to balance a budget.
