Ronald Reagan’s National Security Adviser, George H. W. Bush’s Chairman Of The Joint Chiefs of Staff, George W. Bush’s Secretary of State, All Endorse President Obama

Colin Powell finally came out of the closet today:

Of course, what does a retired four-star general, who worked for three Republican presidents (and also served under Richard Nixon as a White House Fellow) , know about foreign policy and national security? Plenty. And he knows a lot about Mitt Romney, too:

The governor who was saying things at the debate on Monday night … was saying things that were quite different from what he said earlier. I’m not quite sure which Gov. Romney we would be getting with respect to foreign policy.

One day he has a certain strong view about staying in Afghanistan but then on Monday night he agrees with the withdrawal, same thing in Iraq. On almost every issue that was discussed on Monday night, Governor Romney agreed with the President with some nuances. But this is quite a different set of foreign policy views than he had earlier in the campaign. And my concern … is that sometimes I don’t sense that he has thought through these issues as thoroughly as he should have.

Think, Mitt, think,” he has said before.

I know the following colorful badges, medals, and ribbons don’t compare to, say, the ones Romney-endorsers Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity received for their service to the country, but damn they’re an impressive sight:

    • Hey, Moe. You have to click on the individual post in order to see the Reblog button. At least that’s the way it works in my experience. Try that.

      • The only thing that’s coming up for me is the ‘share’, but there’s no re-blog option there. I seem to remember that when WP added it, it was up in the WP tool bar at top of page? It’s been so long since I did one . ..

          • That’s what I had been looking for and it wasn’t there, even when I was on the page for just one specific post.. BUt then magically, today, it’s there! I’ve had lots of WP probs in recent months – mostly they correct themselves eventually.. This must have been another of them.
