Oh, the hypocrisy of it all. The very same liberals who declared they would never vote for Hillary Clinton because of her Iraq War vote are now celebrating the endorsement of Obama by Colin Powell. It’s become obvious that Obama supporters can find a way to justify anything (FISA vote anyone?) in their blind support of Barack Obama.
Here’s a man who has repeatedly bragged about having the foresight to have been against the war from the start embracing the man who sold the war to the United Nations. Obama has slammed McCain for supporting the war but somehow it’s ok to have as one of his advisers the man who sat in front of the WORLD and sold the Iraq war.
Not only is Obama accepting the endorsement, he said:
WASHINGTON — Colin Powell will have a role as a top presidential adviser in an Obama administration, the Democratic White House hopeful said Monday.
“He will have a role as one of my advisers,” Barack Obama said on NBC‘s “Today” in an interview aired Monday, a day after Powell, a four-star general and President George W. Bush‘s former secretary of state, endorsed him.
“Whether he wants to take a formal role, whether that’s a good fit for him, is something we’d have to discuss,” Obama said.
Lest we all forget what part Colin Powell had in the war in Iraq, here is the United Nations speech he gave.
Are Obama supporters brain dead or high from the kool aid? The cognitive dissonance must be overwhelming.
Nowhere is the hyprocrisy and stupidity more evident than Democratic Underground:
7515917, I believe in redemption. And I believe Colin Powell deserves credit for trying to make things right.

Colin Powell knows as well as anyone that he blew it when he was Secretary of State. This is his chance for redemption, and I for one welcome him to the Obama campaign.
He did the wrong thing before. He deserves credit for doing the right thing now.
Just pretend it’s all good:
Please control yourself if you don’t like Powell – THIS IS A HUGE endorsement for Obama!!!

Please don’t bash the General…I know I know, all of it…etc.
But, please act like your grateful and supportive!
