McCain Disappointed in Powell's Obama Endorsement

Says general has harmed his legacy for not voting how the senator wants him to.


Sen. John McCain said on Thursday Gen. Colin Powell has "harmed" his "legacy even further" by endorsing President Barack Obama and defending his foreign policy.

"All I can say is: Gen. Powell, you disappoint us," McCain said Thursday on Fox News Radio's "Kilmeade and Friends." "And you have harmed your legacy even further by defending what is clearly been the most feckless foreign policy in my lifetime."

NEXT: Frederick Douglass, Classical Liberal

  1. And here I thought Powell destroyed his reputation in the lead up to the Iraq War, when he sat behind George Tenet at the UN as what he admitted to later knowing was obviously false “intelligence” was disseminated.

    Not that half(?) senile warmonger John McCain gives a shit about that.

  2. You need to retire from politics John McCain. The United States would be a better place without you interfering. Your old passionate for politics are obsolete. Your choice for having Sara Palin as your VP tells everything about you and poor decisions. Remember Sarah said that she can see Russia from her back porch.

    1. Great impression of a retarded lefty! You should take it to Daily Kos.
