    Thank God Collin Powell endorsed Obama but let's not
    Forget that he was in the whitehouse when the deficit
    began. I was happy when he resigned from his position
    but I don't think he can now come and speak against our
    President. Unfortunately George Bush was given 7 1/2
    years to do damage before america spoke out and that
    was only because the banks were falling ,the auto industry,
    the real estate market the list goes on why didn't he speak
    out during the crisis because the crisis started 81/2 years
    ago and now our President is doing what he has to to clean
    up their mess he is no excluded from Bush's Mess we are
    now dealing with I say Keep Up the Good Work President

    Thank God the Administration of George Bush is finish.
    Unfortunately George Bush was given 7 ½ years. He damaged the economy of America. The banks failed, the auto industry, the real estate market and the list goes on. Why he didn’t he speak out during the crisis. The crisis started 81/2 years ago and now our President is doing what he has to clean up their mess. He certainly is no excluded from Bush’s Mess. President Obama has to keep the Good Work. The concept of accountability has to worked and instill in the federal government so it can be spread thru the states and territories of the United States. This concept has to be endure by all.

    Colin Powell, like so many other Republicans, has lost his credibility, if he ever had any. He has always seemed to go whichever way the wind blows.

    It's interesting that all these Republicans are speaking out now. Where were they when our country was going in the tank under Bush? And Powell was in his cabinet.
