It’s a pity no one in the Republican Party cares about Colin Powell anymore. In fact, in light of his misleading speech to the UN which “justified” the Iraq War, I suspect nobody much cares about Colin Powell anymore.
Nonetheless, when the former Secretary of State tells Mitt Romney to get smarter advisors about foreign policy, Romney would be well-advised to listen to him.
I don’t know who all of his advisers are but I’ve seen some of the names and some of them are quite far to the right and sometimes I think they might be in a position to make judgements or recommendations to the candidate that should get a second thought. For example when Governor Romney not to long ago said “The Russian federation is our number one geo-strategic threat.” Well, come on, Mitt, think. That isn’t the case.
Nope. Hasn’t been since about 1990, either.
