Weekend News----Colin Powell Lying?

Kliphnote: Is Colin Powell lying, again. Did Colin Powell vote (twice) for Obama only because Obama's black? Is Powell a raciest?  You decide.
But to me, Powell has zero credibility.

"The nation's gross domestic product shrank for the first time in 3 1/2 years during the fourth quarter, declining at an annual rate of 0.1% between October and December, the Commerce Department said Wednesday." wsj.

Colin Powell Tells Fox News' Bill O'Reilly Why He Voted For Obama Twice

colin powell o'reilly factor fox news
In an exclusive and wide-ranging interview on Tuesday, Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly asked former Secretary of State Colin Powell how he could vote for President Barack Obama twice as a Republican.

Powell said it simply came down to the economic plans put forth by the Republican campaigns, which he says were not “suited for the times we were in.”

O’Reilly argued that Obama’s economic plan didn’t work in his first term at all.

He also said the situation for African Americans and other minority groups has only gotten worse under the president.

“So you basically said to yourself I’m still going to support the guy even though his economic policies haven’t worked for African Americans and pretty much anyone else,” O’Reilly said, referring to Powell’s decision to vote for Obama a second time.

Former aide: Powell WMD speech 'lowest point in my life'


August 23, 2005
A former top aide to Colin Powell says his involvement in the former secretary of state's presentation to the United Nations on Iraq's weapons of mass destruction was "the lowest point" in his life.
"I wish I had not been involved in it," says Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, a longtime Powell adviser who served as his chief of staff from 2002 through 2005. "I look back on it, and I still say it was the lowest point in my life."
Wilkerson is one of several insiders interviewed for the CNN Presents documentary "Dead Wrong -- Inside an Intelligence Meltdown." The program pieced together the events leading up to the mistaken WMD intelligence that was presented to the public. A presidential commission that investigated the pre-war WMD intelligence found much of it to be "dead wrong."
