Sen. John McCain Slams Colin Powell for Endorsing Pres. Obama
Earlier today, General Colin Powell endorsed President Obama for the second time. Powell said he agreed with Pres. Obama’s decision to end the war in Iraq, to begin to end the war in Afghanistan and not starting any new wars.
Powell told CBS News: "You know, I voted for him in 2008, and I plan to stick with him in 2012 and will vote for him and Vice President Joe Biden next month. So that's an endorsement for President Obama for reelection."
In response, Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) said Thursday afternoon on the 'Kilmeade and Friends' radio program: "General Powell, you disappoint us and you have harmed your legacy even further by defending what is clearly the most feckless foreign policy in my lifetime,” reports TalkingPointMemo.com.
There's obviously no love lost betwen Powell and McCain. If you recall, the Republican senator failed to get Powell's endorsement during the 2008 campaign -- and McCain certainly hasn't forgotten that slight. In fact, since his work with the George H.W. Bush Administration, Powell has distanced himself from the Republican party.
As of yet, no one has criticized Sen. McCain for his attack on the former American General.
