The Majority Leadership in the House and Senate are currently assisting him too, of course.

    He knows he's only got two years. The People are catching on and more will as things continue to worsen. The 2010 voting results will make it much harder for him to get his agenda through. Even just a few changes in Congressmen and Senators will make it much more difficult, if not impossible, to get his Oligarchy in place.

    IDK, That is just what it sounded like Powell was saying, to me anyway.

    What I do think Obama is up to though is not only to cram as much into 2 years as possible, but to wear us down. If he, and Congress, just push and push and push, their hope is that we just become fatigued by the constant barrage of nonsense and eventually we just give in. WE CAN NOT LET THAT HAPPEN!!!!

    On the contrary, we MUST continue to call and write our congressmen. Each and every time some load of B.S. comes to the surface, we must let them know that we will not stand for it. It does no good for us to vow to each other that we will vote them out in 2010 if they continue to vote the way they do. We must tell THEM that, over and over until they recognize our voices on the other end of the phone.

    We must also not settle for a compromise. That is another tactic of getting their way. They propose (and fight for) something so outlandish, and then when they agree to compromise, we cave in. We cannot allow this to happen either. NO MEANS NO!!!

    I know a lot of people who staunchly supported candidate Obama who now strongly oppose President Obama's agenda!

    I'm hoping and praying an overwhelming majority of Americans - regardless of party affiliation BS - wake up to this insanity and realize this "hope & change" isn't what they intended when they voted this dork into the oval office... regardless of how nice and warm & fuzzy it made them feel when they drank the kool-aid last fall.

    I'd like to think America can wake up and work to "fix this" as early as next year's elections. The way this prez is going, he's well on his way to tipping the pot onto himself with all the stirring he's doing.

    Personally, I failed to see the 'big deal' with C. Powell even when he was a General, but his discernment is certainly suspect to support this dork and then "flip" so soon afterward. He'll make a fine politician!

    A "post-turtle" by definition: A turtle placed atop a fence post. He didn't get there by himself. He has no idea what he's doing there. He's certainly out of his element. He has no idea how he'll get down. And those who placed him there obviously weren't "forward thinkers" either. Now what?
    ROFLMAO on the "post-turtle" definition. As for Powell, I've never liked the guy. Yeah he was a General. yeah, he was put into a few powerful positions, but as for being a "leader", he hasn't impressed me.

    Sadly, you just can't fix stupid! :(
    I often wonder if the people in our neighborhood who so proudly put out those Obama/Biden signs in their yard are feeling stupid yet, or if they'll just Stand By Their Man til the rotten end. I can't help but to remember which houses those were, and look at them like they might be a little, shall we say, slow.

Thanks anyway.
    Powell is just another RINO showing his true colors. Obama supporters, whether they voted for his color or all the free programs he promised, did not care to hear the truth. Now the bills are stating to pile up and the credit cards are maxed out. When the chickens come home to roost, hopefully enough people will wake up vote some real hope and change.

    IMAO it is all about race for Colin Powell. He also agreed with Sotomayor's ruling on the New Haven firefighters.
