Which way is the wind blowing?

Let’s check the wind vane.

Though he believes President Obama has had several significant achievements during his first term, Gen. Colin Powell stopped short of giving him an official endorsement in the upcoming election.

Powell appeared on TODAY Tuesday to promote his new book, “It Worked for Me,’’ a compilation of lessons learned throughout his life. The Secretary of State under President George W. Bush endorsed Obama for president in 2008, calling him a transformational figure who could institute generational change. But while Powell lauds the president’s accomplishments, he is not ready to offer his endorsement just yet.

The wind vane indicates that the wind is not at Obama’s back.

    Colin Powell dishonored himself by endorsing Obama just because he was black.

    In Congress, there is the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC). Some 74 active members and 24 inactive members are on its rolls.
    Mostly, these are Democrats (marx/leninists).

    Then there are the “Bluedog Democrats” and finally Progressive Republicans (RINO’s).

    One wonders if the Senate has the same composition? We The People do know Mr. McCain is a definite RINO.

    One wonders if Mr. Powell is also of this Pursuasion? a RINO. Then, politically, his views align mostly with those of the Progressive philosophy, i.e., fellow travelers?

    What was this closet RINO doing in the military? Is he another Affirmative Action beneficiary? Like Fauxahontus? How many Generals ascribe to this soviet style philosophy? Where is General George Washington and Eisenhower? God Bless America. Amen.
