Powell endorses Obama for re-election
The Kansas City Star
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell again picked the better candidate for president with his endorsement of Barack Obama for re-election.
Powell, a Republican, in 2008 chose Obama over John McCain. On “CBS This Morning” Powell cited the winding down of the war in Afghanistan under President Obama as a reason behind his decision.
Powell also criticized Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney for foreign policy inconsistencies — something Obama pointed out several times in his debate with Romney this week. Such mixed signals confuse U.S. troops and America’s allies.
The retired general’s endorsement showed that he looks past his party affiliation to side with the best person to lead the country.
