    Powell airs doubts on Obama agenda - Washington Times

    One of Obama strong supporters is questioning his agenda. It can't be good.

    Powell is not a strong supporter. He made zero campaign appearances.

    It is hardly surprising that a republican would have issues with some of Obama's agenda, even if he supports the president in general.

    This is the first time I heard Powell speak out. In the past, he publicly supported Obama if not 'endorsing' him.

    This is a gem by Powell who was recently quoted as saying:
    "Americans want to pay more taxes"

    So let's see Powell pimped Bush's war and Obama's stimulus and some thought he should run for President? Well right about now that's looking like a good thing that he didn't.

    Buyers remorse. Looks like there's a lot of that going around these days.

    Colin needs to watch his back. Rahm isn't going to like this. Not one bit.

    Flight insurance? At least Powell's family can collect.

    Obama would be a better President without Rahm and Axelrod.

    Invisible poisonous skyfish fly at 300 km/h all around us: Topic. Pravda.Ru
    Recently many reports appeared talking about the weird creatures, the so-called skyfish. It remains unclear whether the animals are fish, birds or worms.

    Mysterious creatures are caught on film everywhere

    The mysterious beings have long worm-like bodies with wide projections on their sides (like those of fish). The trouble is, they don’t live in water – they live in the air.

    No one has come up with a decent name for the animals as of yet. Some suggestions include “flying sticks,” “solar entities,” and “skyfish more.....

    Wow nows thats something you don't see everyday.

    "pravda" in Russian means "truth". So Pravda is Russian truth.


    It's a Byzantine thing.

    Woo. You went way back to pick that second one out.

    So far as the second post goes, I said I could live with him as president, not that I would necessarily vote for him. This does not contradict anything what I said in this thread.
